Two of the most promising new European hardcore bands teamed up on this Split-EP which will be released on Let It Burn Records / Acuity.Music March 2012.

THE HAVERBROOK DISASTER already demonstrated their musical prowess on last summer's debut full-length "Hopeward Bound". They recorded 3 brand new exclusive tracks for this split release in February 2012. Courageous no thrills hardcore with THD-like melodic guitars. Their most energetic material so far.

some recent, old and older interviews

here some rencent, old and even older interviews published on GOT-A-NERVE!, TRUSIDEMUSIC and NCC-zine. A jump back to a bit of our history where you'll have the chance to read about the likes of COMEBACK KID, ANCHOR, DARKEST HOUR, TO KILL, TERROR, HIMSA, ALL FOR NOTHING, WHALES ISLAND,FINAL PRAYER, LA CRISI (to name but a few). Some of these bands are still around, some other called it a day but all of them contributed with their music, lyrics, shows to hardcore-punk scene of the last ten years.

SSS - The good measure in crossover

12/31/2011 | To be honest I arranged this interview much in a hurry. I just didn’t want to miss the chance to catch the guys in Italy, check’em out up on stage and let you guys read about this crossover Liverpool-based four-piece. So when I learned they were on the road to Italy for the only Italian gig of their “Questions To The Answers Euro Tour 2011” I got in touch with their press-person but due to my short-time notice I got confirmed for the interview only on the afternoon before the gig. I went home from work, scribbled down a bunch of questions and drove straight to the venue on a cold and very foggy night. Regretfully, not that much people came out tonight but SSS (Short, Sharp, Shock) are no-longer kids and are still in this and working their asses off for the good reasons; and I’m pretty sure they’d be coming back to play even before one person.

TODAY FOREVER - Relationshipwrecks (CD)

01/25/2012 | Es gab mal ein Zeit, da war jedem, der sich in der europäischen Hardcoreszene aktiv bewegt hat, das Ă–rtchen Kassel in Nordhessen ein fester Begriff. Vor allem dank Bands wie Brightside oder den Ryker's, aber auch aufgrund von guten Venues wie dem Spot oder aber dem Akku in Immenhausen war die Herkules-Stadt ein dick markierter Punkt auf der Hardcore-Landkarte. Dann wurde es etwas ruhig um Kassel, doch inzwischen ist es wieder ein Begriff.
