MARISOLV interview

by marcs77

Could starting this out mentioning that Germany's (Bad Hersfeld/Gotha based) MARISOLV born out of the ashes of metalcorers Bury My Sins but it would only be pretty reductive to say the least.
The quintet (or old fuckers as Marco says) behind this project are well into in their thirties and have been involved in the hardcore for many years being in bands, releasing records, promoting bands, setting up shows, doing paper fanzines or running webzines and supporting their local HC/Metal scene. You know, all the good things about hardcore punk and DIY; the things that kick ass to all the fashion bullshit.

WOLFxDOWN forced to cancel their appearance at THIS IS MOSCOW FEST

Some bad news coming from WOLFxDOWN camp...
Bad news are coming your way. It's frustrating but we have to tell you that we are forced to cancel our performance at THIS IS MOSCOW fest. Due to Larissa's dual citizenship and visa difficulties we are not able to enter or rather to depart the country and she would be forced to stay in Russia for two to six months. It is disappointing as we were totally stoked about that trip, and we as a band as well as the promoters lost a bunch of money on that.
We will try to solve this citizenship issues and come to Russia as soon as possible! We feel sorry for everyone who wanted to see us and even more for Timofey and the promoter crew.

NEGAZIONE Il Giorno Del Sole CD-book review

by marcs77

What's the point with writing a bad review? And why do this when you haven't even been required to write the piece in the first place?
Well, I thought of this point and gave second thoughts to this as well, and I finally decided to stick with my guts and vent what I think of about a music related product I made sure to buy just upon its release and which I had really high expectations on.
Okay, I'm getting to the actual review.
Last summer I bought CD-book entitled “NEGAZIONE - Il Giorno Del Sole”. Nothing like an official biography or the fully-detailed history of this 80's Italian punk hardcore band but as clearly stated by the authors “a short story that aims to explain what Negazione has been all about over the three years span and little over between 1984 and end of winter of 1988; the years when the songs featured in “Little Dreamer” (1988), “Lo Spirito Continua (1986) and “Condannati A Morte Nel Nostro Quieto Vivere” 7” (1985)” -the  the compilation CD sold in the package includes these tunes.
