Punk that rules

His Hero is Gone combines overt melody and crust punk.


I think that`s how they managed to bring the bitterness out, which adds depth to the crust punk.

For me, it just seems fake. a gimmick of sorts. being melodic for the sake of melody.

id much rather listen to other crust.

on the topic of other crust; who here enjoys Disfear? "Soul Scars" is one hell of a crust album. i have not heard their newest one yet, but "Misanthropic Generation" is a decent listen, although it tends to drag about halfway through. still, Tomas Lindberg is one of my favorite vocalists, and he does a great job on that album.

i think he meant Toxic Holocaust. Toxic Narcotic is a totally different band.


Yeah, Toxic Narcotic was the only other "recreational" band I could think of, I hadn't listened to the others. I see why the name caused confusion though, like all of the bands that share the 'Dis-' prefix. I probably should have mentioned Leftover Crack too. Horrible recreational bands, they are.

i will agree that punk is dead, but there are still a few "zombie bands" which are of interest.


You've already nailed a few: Doom, Extreme Noise Terror, and Disfear.

The thing about Disfear is that they started off well, but everything after their first album sound too much like Entombed after they caught HIV.

I suppose that's what happens when you try to feed people leftovers day in and day out.

Obviously new people are going to be all right with these leftovers and appreciate it (I hope we enjoy metaphors here), but everyone who has had the same damned meal each night is going to be sick of it and probably cook something fresh and new (or find someone else who is doing so), or perhaps cook the leftovers into another dish, or, for the lazy ones, go out and eat the same shitty fast food that everyone else likes and doesn't care if it's bad for them. It doesn't matter how much nutrient-deprived grease it contains as long as it's filling.

After a while though, the leftovers will get stale, the fast food will choke hearts, and nobody will be healthy enough to survive after eating any of them, except for the people willing to cook their own damned food instead of having others serve them shit. In the end, the people who cooked their own food had the best meals, and often ate them before they got rotten.

That album is fantastic. Like a punk version of Demoncy's Joined in Darkness.

The rest of their stuff left me cold. Leftovers, warmed but not heated.

onan, have you heard Doom? try out their "Fuck Peaceville" compilation. absolutely crushing.

Wolfpack's "Lycanthoro Punk" is an album in the vein of "Soul Scars", albeit with a bit clearer production, thicker guitars, and a much different kind of vocalist.

on the topic of older punk, the Circle Jerks' "Group Sex" and G.B.H.'s "City Baby Attacked By Rats" are both great albums.
