Eyes Shut - What It's All About CD

First off I would like clarify what this blog is about. It is about showscasing bands and music that may have been either ignored in the past, or is out of print and hard to find. Somebody asked me to post the new off with their heads album. I DO NOT and WILL NOT post music that is still easily available. The bands and labels work their asses off and deserve all the money they can get. So go support them. And in that not, the new MINDSET album is on pre-order. So I recomend you go get that!

Here is a release I think most of you will enjoy. 95% of my collection consists of pop punk and some thrash. But I also have some hardcore in there. I like my hardcore fast, posi, and did I mention fast? OK I think you get the point. I like the old school style hardcore. the chugga chugga metal influenced hardcore sucks balls. Anyways this band is from Germany and play some great old school influenced hardcore. Fast, posi and the way hardcore should be!

PRESSING INFO: Released in 1998 on Keep it Alive Records out of Germany. Not many pressed, and thats a shame because it is such a good album.

Brazilia - Pants Tight: Arms Crossed CD

I really need to buy a stylus for my record player. Well at least the USB one I use to upload records on here. So until then you are stuck with all CD's. Which is still good because I have a ton of rare and out of print ones I want everybody to hear.

These guys came out of the screamo scene back in the day. If you remember bands like five stars for failure, stars and revolution, and bailey park, Brazilia is right up your alley. Artsy screamo with a good bit of singing. I got this in a huge pop punk lot I bought off of ebay 4 years ago. Can't seem to find another copy. They also released another full length and a 7" which you will see on future entires. My favorite songs are Punctual and shiver

PRESSING INFO: Released on Braeburn Records in 2001. I don't think either the label or the band is still around.

1. Metal Makes a Bear Grow
2. Superhero
3. House by the Sea
4. Punctual
