Now I'm not a fan boy. I've never gorged myself on a single band for more than a couple of weeks before moving on.

A year or so ago I bought Refused's "The Shape of Punk to Come". I wasn't overly impressed. Hardcore's not something I've ever been particualrly into.

However, after a few lifestyle changes (Naomi Klein, Irving Howe, Socialist history teacher, girlfriend etc.) I gave it another liten and was enamoured.

(I appreciate that it's not everyone's cup of tea and they're not the single most experimental band ever, or anything like that, but humour me)

I bought some hardcore of varying styles (Comeback Kid, Dillinger Escape Plan, Cancer Bats) and listened to some Tool as well. I've enjoyed myself but, well...

Tool's experimentation is jaw dropping, but its limioted to rhythm, melody and structure. I need more. Hardcore's.... not bad. I enjoy the aggression but its not the bizzare, estoteric ramblings of The Shape of Punk to Come.

Anyone who can suggest a band or artist with a similair... uniqueness about them will be, at least, sig'd, and hopefully be happy in the knowledge of their accomplishments.

I saw those guys live at Soundwave festival. Their music's alright, but their singer is such a spoilt brat that I really wanted to throw **** at him. Almost certainly an only child.

I'm gonna throw Minus The Bear into the mix. Not because they are what you are after, but because I want to

Much love.

You'd like Between the Buried and Me's older albums probably.
Awakening The Revenant
Deathcore side project: Malevolent

start with more poppy music with occasional screams and then work your way into emoish crap like a day to remember and so on.

You could consider the mars volta's 1st album is you liked ATDI. Its half of the band and some other kickass musicians but might stray a little far from hardcore. Plenty of experimentation though.

Q: OK, so do you care about the labels — nastiest, edgiest team in the NFL?

Jim Schwartz: It's better than the alternative — meekest, least aggressive, softest team in the NFL.
