OH MY GOSH!! Thank you Blood & Ink Records for sending me quite possibly the best HARDCORE release of the past few years. The album is called “Death is Inevitable” and it’s from an on the rise Florida band by the name of With Increase. You fans of that classic 90’s hardcore sound from bands like Focal Point, early Overcome, Strongarm, along with Snapcase, Poison the Well, and Shai Hullud will fall in love with this band’s music. It has that “classic” sound yet they develop it into so much more than just the mundane, over done sound of yesteryear. If you’re hunting for that new band who embraces the hardcore culture and sound, look no further than Florida’s own With Increase. SFHXC 2014
Melodic Hardcore acts Endeavor and Servants have released a most awesome new “Split” ep via Bandcamp here. You can listen/download for name your price (or free), below. If you’re fan of melodic hardcore and are looking for new bands with a hopeful message, I highly recommend these two groups. For fans of Life In Your Way, Means, Shai Hullud, Strongarm, Stretch Arm Strong.
We are following up our Strongarm “Fast FWD” feature with Part 2, this time with Chris Carbonell answering some deep questions. Let’s relive the past and travel back to the time of DIY hardcore spirit and celebrate the accomplishments of this great Florida band.
I started a feature late last year that sort of fell to the wayside. I apologize for slacking on my job. Here is the latest edition of “Fast FWD – What They’re Up 2 Now” with Jason B. of Strongarm. Enjoy!

Virginia based melodic hardcore band Color Me Valiant just released their new ep “SinnerServantSon” for download on Bandcamp. The ep is currently $.50 (or more) on bandcamp so you don’t want to pass this opportunity up to get some new music. Their sound can best be described as melody meets the harshness of hardcore. Imagine Anberlin jamming along with Life In Your Way and you might get an idea for what to expect. Stream/Download below.
