In the early 90’s Integrity’s “Those Who Fear Tomorrow” changed the face of hardcore – for better or worse. After that Lp there was a deluge of bands playing a type of hardcore that had less in common with punk and began playing metal with a hardcore aesthetic. Still, many people still called it “hardcore”. However, that’s not an indictment of the quality of the music. Some of these bands (not many) were quite good – regardless of what you called it.
I talk about a few of the less heralded bands playing in this sandbox;
Conviction, Darkside NYC, Starkweather, Bloodlet, Ironside, Splinter, Anguish, Cattlepress, Thoughts of Ionesco, Mayday and Turmoil.
