Wow man! I swear for every person who says that hardcore is exhausted as a music style, there are always bands and labels that push the boundaries and make it heavier and heavier! I knew Urban Discipline records through Face Your Enemy, the beatdown kings of Italy (check to read review here). But Urban Discipline's new release really turns the game on with some of the heaviest stuff I've listened to lately!
Still In Da Game play a mix of hardcore, death metal and rap that can really shock the unprepared hardcore fan! All the elements are here: the hardcore speed and style, but also the death metal mosntrosity and the rap breakdowns! You'll drop your jaw at this guy's gore-metal vocals, and then will blow you away with some real hardcore attitude & music. In contrast to other bands that mix all those elements together and create one consistent mix, SIDG stand out because they switch from one style to the other. So you really don't know what to expect in this whirlwind of different styles!
Yeah... I'm really proud of the European scene taking the initiative and supporting extreme stuff like this! Urban Discipline records has been around since 1990, so they know what they're doing! Like they state on their website, they promote bands that do not necessarily sound hardcore, but are made up of hardcore kids who live the hardcore lifestyle everyday.
That's what it's about!
