Wilkes-Barre straight edge locals. Freeze Up plays a short, fast style of hardcore punk blended with pissed-off lyrics. new 7" to drop soon. I've heard it and it rips (even though its less than 7 minutes long). keep an eye out for it.
(i'll write more later when i have time/feel like it)

They are pretty good. I actually live like... 20 minutes away from Wilkes Barre. Kickass
#3
They sound pretty good from the two songs on their myspace. I wish the drums, especially the cymbals were a bit louder in the recordings. That would give it a little more of a kick if that makes any sense.

jared bought their 7" at slambfest, pretty cool
i'm probably in that picture somewhere, seeing as thats where it was taken

Why are all the BOTM's more or less in the same category / sub-genre of Hardcore so far?

Not a lot of diversity going on.
#8
Because the people who actually contribute and do these tend to like the same type of hardcore. If you want to post something different, get it ready for next month, post it, I'll stick it.

actually i'd like to think theres a decent difference between the last 3 months (mother of mercy, decades[melodic], freeze up[fast,short,and pissed]). its probably only that different for people that listen to hardcore though just like if someone posted different metalcore bands i probably wouldnt notice a difference.

feel free to contribute next month though, ive only been doing it cause no one else has

I wasn't complaining, merely pointing out a consistency.

Explain?


i think the biggest case he can make is that every single(of the more than needed abundance of them) attack attack threads has turned into a joke and a mockery. weather you like them or not, if you post on here; you know this is true.

If it's such a big deal to you do something about it. Make a Metalcore BOTM thread or something instead of just complaining.

First of all, I enjoy deathcore for it's complexity and it's the only genre heavy enough for me

#19
i was kinda thinking the same thing (even though im from pa), which is why i suggested Rotting Out, but whatever, shout out to local bands

from what i've been told, singer of freeze up is the nicest dude ever

yeah i posted that boy

i just can't decide if a lot of eastern pa bands come up because of you me and jared, or just cause eastern pa hc is the bees knees right now. i'd say its probably somewhere in the middle

Start a band/put on shows/promote local bands, there's a shitload you can do yourself.

the band was backtrack, but i figured out someone a lot better to do.

btw Backtrack's Rec Release is Sep. 25th in Wilkes-Barre with Title Fight, Cold World, Cruel Hand, and Naysayer. I'll be the War Pigs last show though.

Good band. I've got an idea for a BOTM, not like any of the bands that have been up before. How do I go about making one? Like do I just make a normal thread about the band?

BTBAM should win BOTM every month ( and sometimes PTH )

#39
it's not a competition, it's a way for people to discover new bands. everyone has heard of btbam and protest the hero
#40
yeah making a really big band botm is dumb, it's more about getting new bands out that have been doing a lot lately
