I'm fed up with some bands being completely overlooked on these forums. Post bands you reckon deserve to be mentioned more often on these forums.

Beecher - kinda grindcore-y hardcore, their newer stuff is a bit heavier.
Blood Has Been Shed - howard from killswitch's other band, his vocals suit this band a lot more. Much heavier than killswitch, think dillinger escape plan/meshuggah.
Burst - Kinda progressive melodic metal, not sure if it fits in the hardcore forum but oh well.
Crydebris - amazing uk band, epic, progressive uk hardcore, kinda what would happen if every time i die decided to go progressive.
Cubic Space Division - pyschedelic, spac-ey metal/hardcore
Devil Sold His Soul - ****ing amazing stuff from london/gloustershire. signed to visible noise, progressive hardcore a bit like a mix between isis and will haven.
Eden Maine - sort of DEP-ish stuff from the uk
Isis - progressive stuff, heavy and epic in parts but in other bits kinda floating and cinematic
Johnny Truant - metalcore from brighton, i like their earlier stuff best which is a bit more progressive but the newer stuff is just as good, just shorter songs and a bit heavier
Losa - sort of math metal a bit like mastodon
Madman Is Absolute - uk metalcore. For all the trivium fans
Mahumodo - devil sold his soul in an earlier incarnation. like a heavier, eastern-tinged version of deftones
The Ocean Fracture - like a heavier mars volta
Reflux - technical metalcore on prosthetic records
Shaped By Fate - uk metalcore band, lots of dischord lol
Sikth - Uk spazzy metal/hardcore, a bit like a mix between the dillinger escape plan & the mars volta
Twin Zero - atmospheric metal/hardcore band
Will Haven - hardcore/metal band from the sacramento area, like every time i die etc
With Passion - technical metalcore similar to btbam

Will Haven may be alright, but I have never been able to get in to the band that came after them...Ghostride.

Saw them support Biffy Clyro live, and, to be completely honest, they sounded awful.

Neaera- Swedish metalcore. Very unique vocals.
The Red Death- Metalcore but a lot more complex than most metalcore. Just really good stuff.
Through The Eyes of the Dead. So amazingly good. They're actually touring with The Red Death now.

And i thought i was the only Cubic fan on these here forums...add "the murder of rosa luxemburg" "Calico System" "million dead" - dont tell me they aint hxc because they were, and the CD and live show differ more than any band i know. "PDHM" perhaps bung up "The Aconite Thrill" maybe even "bravo ****ing bravo" and "This Island Earth" "Paint the Town Dead"....i mean theres loads.

The murder of rosa luxembourg & aconite thrill are great.

I always found PDHM a bit boring though.

Just like how every single riff on 'O God the Aftermath' is almost identical to Botch's 'Anthology of Dead Ends'

Every band that xKurtx listed and definatly Eden Maine that Eskimo put. Is their full length any good (if it's even come out yet, i'm out of loop with Eden Maine).

Considering your from London I was surprised that you haven't any LBU bands. So I will take this time to mention them:
Knuckledust
Ninebar
TRC
Prowler
Diction
Beatdown Fury (BDF)

Other bands which should be talked about but aren't:
On Thin Ice
Down To Nothing
FC Five
Earth Crisis
FLOORPUNCH!
H2O
Have Heart
In My Eyes
Integrity

I'll stop here...

Lol i'm too poor for the eden maine full length, but i saw it in hmv - the four tracks i have by them are amazing.
As for LBU bands like knuckledust, and the "real hardcore bands" that xKurtx suggested, i just find them a bit boring. I'm more into the progressive side of things.

Send more paramedics are awful!

The problem is myspace really, its good because its cheap advertisement for bands but people have no idea what hardcore is they think any band with a tattoo that screams is hardcore!

I don't think its bands that are under rated there just not as talked about as others I dont allways feel the need to state eveyr band I listen too, and if a band is really good but under rated its often there fault for not trying to promote there self or not playing shows further a field...

I don't know, SS decontrol, youth brigade ill just say them because I dont think they have been metioned yet!

11-08-2005, 02:47 PM
You call Send More Paramedics awful yet you like SS Decontrol? This puzzles me, granted the zombie thing can seem a bit overdone but I love them all the same. The guitarist is pretty damn good and they're a great, fun live band.

I think all of Bane's stuff is great, but The note is a step up.
This is hell is awesome, I've been into them for a little while now, my cousin got me into them after Bats and Knives toured with them last August.

And yeah, lots of people know of old Underoath, maybe not the fuse/mtv2 crowd, but the old stuff is not overlooked.

bands such as:

Transistor Transistor
Get ****ed
Wolves
City of Caterpillar
Pageninetynine
Orchid

in summary, most bands off level plane, and similar labels..

i suppose it's not REAL hardcore as such, and some could even say screamo (in the original sense of the word mind you).

11-23-2006, 03:16 PM
Madman is Absolute!!! Are the best!!! There SOOOOOO much better than Trivium in everyway but there kinda different styles cause Madman are like Metal/Thrash and Trivum are more Metalica.

Send More Paramedics - amazing zombie related band with good guitar work as well.

If you like hardcore check out Knuckledust or if u can find it check out there split album with Unite who are also amazing.

Co-Exist are pretty amazing as well but there vergin on the heavy end of full on facial maulage.

Man Must Die
Godplayer
The Punchline is Murder
RSJ

Thats the most i can think of there pretty much all Metal/Hardcore/Thrash or along those lines
