Heavy Manners Presents Hardcore
I figured it was time to give a little shine on some of the hardcore bands that inspire some of the imagery and sediments that go into Heavy Manners.
This is not a definitive mix of all things hardcore and it is actually missing a lot of great bands, but it is a good starting point to build off of.
Punk and the numerous sub-genres that sprung from it can be a bit overwhelming to take in for the beginner.
Hardcore as defined by Wikipedia:
"Hardcore punk is a sub-genre of punk rock that originated in North America and the UK in the late 1970s. The new sound was generally thicker, heavier and faster than earlier punk rock. The songs are usually short, fast, and loud, covering topics such as politics, personal freedom, violence, social alienation, straight edge, war, and the hardcore subculture itself."
Now that you have the gist of what "hardcore" is download the mix and go punch something.
