smlStruggleLurking in the shadows of Brisbane’s hardcore scene since 2012, THE STRUGGLE have been working on a sound that fuses the classic groove of 90’c NYHC with the lyrical delivery of some of hip hop’s finest. 

smlLevel_01Fresh out of Adelaide is latest band LEVEL, featuring a mix of personel who have been involved in hardcore for a very long time. Not concerned with their past, LEVEL remain focused on the Here And Now.

smlBH_4The latest thrash-tastic band to emerge from the other side of Australia is none other than BOUNTY HUNTER. BOUNTY HUNTER are fast gaining fans with every listen to their brilliant two song demo.

smlChokeCentral Coast hardcore punk band CHOKE recently released their debut 7" 'War of the Suburbs'. CHOKE are proudly flying the Newcastle / Central Coast hardcore flag and are not afraid to wave it with reckless abandon.

smlStarvation1For the size of the Adelaide scene in comparison to the rest of the country, the quality of bands it has been turning out of late is rather impressive. The latest to join the growing list is Starvation.
