NO SUBMISSION- New (vegan?) hardcore from Burlington, VT. Band has ex-members of Crucial Times and My Revenge, and is fronted by Mikey X, who helps to run one of the oldest DIY punk venues in the country called 242 Main. Solid NYHC jams, with lyrics against homophobia, nationalism, meat, and most of the other bad things in the world. Fast as fuck pit factory of a demo, can't wait to see what comes next.
So It's been a few months since the last post. I've been doing a bunch of moving and other shit and don't technically have a computer anymore, but I'm gonna get this back up on its feet. I probably won't be posting as much as at first, but I'll try to get as much new shit out as I can. If you want something reviewed/ posted shoot me an email at StandXStrongFanzine@Gmail.com and I'll get on it ASAP!

This is a rough recording off the new Tinnitus 7". The song was on the Demo (download that from here if you haven't already) but this has a darker tone and a rad intro. Kevin's singing on this now so the voice is different too. Hard ass samples are included, can't wait to see how this turns out all mixed up and shit and stoked on the new record.

Ripping hardstyle from St. Louis, MO. As soon as I turned this on this morning I knew I was gonna be into it. Most parts of this sound a little faster than what you'd usually get out of this style, I'm into it. One of the best things about this demo has to be the rad solos. I know hardcore's supposed to be all fast and simple but I've got a special place in my heart for some more technical parts sometimes. Get on this download and mosh in your basement and check out their facebook for dates, they're heading up north this summer.
Picked this up in December on their tour with Agitator. Wrong Answer is Philly-area band with members of LetxDown. This 7" pelts out fast, catchy metallic hardcore. I love this band because it's full of genuine hatred and anger, sounds matching with the lyrics of living in a world that's only there to fuck you over. Not as many nifty samples as The Wrong Way demo but the tunes are still rad and I jam this everyday without fail. Look out for them on their way to Sound And Fury this summer and keep an eye out for anything else coming out of Harvcore Records.

Dweller from Cleveland is a group of kids 14-18 playing ripping ass fastcore reminiscent of Infest with scratchier/ more abrasive vocals (which I'm personally more into). This shit sounds pissed off as fuck and with an average song length of 36 seconds. Featuring members of Ghost Breeder and Ages (both also worth checking out).

Holy shit I'm glad these dudes hit me up with this demo. It fucking rips on all kinds of levels. Always Try from SoCal play righteous youth crew mixed with a Righteous Jams style to make you go off the walls. It's mid-tempo'd and energetic like you'd expect from a youth crew band but they've also added in a few parts that are just slow and pounding. This tone is just solid as fuck too. All in all this is an awesome band, get down with it.
