Still hunting down H8000 Hardcore rarities, part 2. The Thor-cover of Liar's 'Death Row Earth' and Congress' 1996 release, 'The Other Cheek'.
The obscure opaque blue version of this Dead Blue Sky 7 inch. Had Kevin Byers of Morning Again on bass. A complete collection.
Hitch was a band from the Lauwe area (a village near Kortrijk). They started out with a 7 inch on Machination Records. And also have a CD on both Good Life Recordings and Machination Records. That must have been released around 1997 (source: Discogs.com). Must have been one of the final releases on Jeroen's Machination … Continue reading Hitch "Triggered Backwards" CD
The Morning Again and 25 Ta Life split release is an awkward one. Besides the fact that in 1998 both bands were on Good Life Recordings and the fact that they are both American Hardcore bands, they have nothing in common. But because they were on tour together in 1998, this release does makes sense. … Continue reading Morning Again / 25 Ta Life split 7 inch
Someone on the social medium Instagram posted a picture of the Inside Front 7 inch made by Good Life Recordings. This record has the four main H8000 bands that were on Good Life back in 1996. It concerns Liar, Congress, Regression and Shortsight. Seeing that post from @xtokeex made me look in the archives and … Continue reading Inside Front Zine #9 and Good Life 7 inch
The last record I got in my Good Life Recordings order is a sweet one of a kind Reprisal LP. As you might see, a transitional version between the clear and the black version. It's mainly clear with traces of black vinyl in it. Backside of the sleeve tells us that there are 500 copies … Continue reading Reprisal "Mail Order Knife Set"
What needs to be said about Morning Again? They were one of the most successful 90's bands from the USA. They are still doing tours nowadays and still mean heaps to lots of people. Recently two partial discographies are being pressed but frankly I have no interest in these since I have the originals and … Continue reading Morning Again "Hand Of Hope" LPs
Most of you know that I collect Good Life Recordings releases on vinyl. And most of you probably relate that label to Edge-Metal and Metalcore in general. Hardcore message with a strong metal influence in the music. Those are the genres I grew up with in the 90's. Oddly people like me love the mix … Continue reading Dying Fetus "Destroy The Opposition" LP
I’ve read several reviews about this record, early and late reviews. I’ve concluded that "Nothing Is Sacred" appeals to people with a whole variety of backgrounds. That’s because they deliver with their first full length a mixture of a whole lot of elements from the harder musical landscape. In their music lay influences of Death … Continue reading Deconsecrate "Nothing Is Sacred" LP Review
I have been pondering hard lately on finding the best way to get people to know the great early to late H8000 scene we had here in Belgium during the 90's. Many of you already know I featured many records and also interviews from H8000 bands, but people could not hear their sound and judge … Continue reading The H8000 Music Channel On YouTube
