Nasty are a Belgian/German metalcore/beatdown band originally from La Calamina, Belgium, founded in November 2004 out of the ashes of beatdown act Van Damme. At the time of their first MCD 'The Beginning' they quickly gained the attention of the Belgian and German hardcore scenes for their violent liveshows and brutal sound; a mix of metalcore and groovy death metal in the vein of bands like Crawlspace. Another trademark of Nasty are their outrageous, over the top - but highly political lyrics.
» Lionheart (US) (Hardcore)
California hardcore powerhouse Lionheart drops the hammer hard with their latest "Welcome To The West Coast." Production, style, message and music on these songs peak out, and somehow keep going further into red. Continuing on their path of late '90s style HC, the band progresses with new rhythms and further developed breakdowns, shouting out to fallen heros along the way. For fans of Hatebreed and Madball.
» Get The Shot (CA) (Hardcore)
Hailing straight from Quebec City, Canada, Get The Shot was formed in 2009 by a bunch of outcasts who wanted nothing more than a chance to spit their fury at the face of the world. The band plays an unpretentious spirited hardcore tinged with the desperation of a cold and disaffected youth. Get The Shot is all about rage and anger toward this harsh place we live in.
