At the very end of the last thread I posted a bunch of locals (Phoenix and Tuscon, Arizona), and although probably no one was interested, I'll post it again for some desperate attempt for cred.

BLUES


Describe themselves as "Botch 'n Roll" and I would say that's pretty accurate. Metallic hardcore with stoner influence.

http://www.myspace.com/lettherockfuckyou


HARLEQUIN BABIES


God, I'm really bad at describing bands. Kind of emo-type sung/screamed vocals with noisy kind of punk (I guess like XBXRX) stuff going on too.

http://www.myspace.com/harlequinbabies

HEATSTROKE


Combines traditional grind stuff (Napalm Death) with some hardcore/sludge/crust influence.

http://www.myspace.com/heatstrokeaz

HOUR OF THE WOLF


Awesome loving locals playing Misfits-influenced hardcore. It's like rockabilly and screamo mixed.

http://www.myspace.com/hourofthewolfaz

ALARM


Read their influences. At times powerviolence, at times straight hardcore, reminds me of Gaza sometimes.

http://www.myspace.com/alarm

I WISH I


This band is awesome. City of Caterpillar like build-ups with louder parts that remind me of Converge or Gaza.

http://www.myspace.com/iwisheye

Alright, I think that's enough for now. I guess IM me if you want some more.

Big Blue Violence posted:

To add to this, I just want to namedrop Get Destroyed (super fast thrash), Think Fast (people who wish they were Infest), and Speak (kids who want to relive ebullition in the 90's).

Yeah, there are tons of bands I'm not mentioning (Soft Shoulder, Slut Sister, Deadwrong, I Don't Give a gently caress, Netzeah) I just thought these were the most worth mentioning, I guess.

Oh, and of course the Level Plane, Female fronted grind band Landmine Marathon are from Phoenix too. Although I'm not that big of a fan, I think they get a lot of attention just because of the female singer.

Built for Brutality posted:

hey kirkjames i have some family down in Tucson that are into hardcore and punk. What are the local venues and what not?

Um, I'm not familiar with Tucson that much (I live in Phoenix and go to school North in Flagstaff) but I know of the Gnarwhal House, which is where most punk shows go, and if they're too big they usually go to Scrappy's.

I posted awhile back asking for recommendations for Cap'n Jazz type bands and discovered a lot of really awesome bands. One of these bands is City of Caterpillar. I've been listening to their self titled for awhile now and was wondering if you guys could recommend me some similar sounding bands.

They have a pretty unique sound, however, bands that have a similiar sound:

Cirle Takes the Square
A Day in Black in White
Portraits of Past

I know it's only February, but I'm putting Board Up The House up for Album Of The Year. It's loving amazing.

Incredible album, they only get better with each release.

Also this is even LESS relevant to the thread, but since they have at various times dipped into crust, d-beat and some hardcore, I'll mention that the new Boris album has leaked too.

Well it should be in the early/lateish afternoon, probably around 3 or 4 but i'm not positive yet, but he should be able to make both. Plus a BBQ! With food!

Oh man this choice was gonna kill me even though I would probably choose WCSL. I love Converge though and would love to see both!

Last night I saw Trash Talk, Alpha & Omega, Run With the Hunted, few other locals in Phoenix.

Really fun shows, and from what I hear there has been tons of trash talk on Trash Talk lately, but those guys are really cool and pretty drama free, not really the rear end in a top hat broish types a lot of people make them out to be.

Fun loving show.

Extortion/Iron Lung are apparently on tour, so go see these loving bands.

Extortion is how hardcore should sound, the epitome of fast/loud/short: http://profile.myspace.com/index.cf...iendid=35301462

and Iron Lung is one of the best powerviolence acts around, Sexless/No Sex is an absolutely devastating album: http://profile.myspace.com/index.cf...endid=134687646

On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being 'literally impossible', how likely is it I am ever going to find Fall of Efrafa recordings on a physical medium?

I just sold all my OG pressings (both eps and first 2 LPs). If you're willing to spend money like the kids who bought my copies, you should be able to find them pretty easy.

Bane....I remember them. Surprised they're still around.

Does anyone have recommendations for 90s midwestern Emo? I'm on a kick right now. I guess they don't have to been from the midwest, but that's what people are calling that sound.

obviously braid, texas is the reason, and mineral. i'm assuming you listen to those if you know what midwest emo is? someone can get deeper but my advice is don't. that poo poo gets pretty bland past those three bands (maybe an exception to the kinsella projects - cap'n jazz, owls, make believe, owen, joan of arc - but that's it).

New Gas Chamber LP ""Hemorrhaging Light" just came out, and it is an absolute pounder. PV type stuff at it's core but definitely has quite a few different influences thrown in.

a couple things about two of my fav hardcore bands at the moment:

S.H.I.T. has a new 7" and they continue to be one of the best hardcore bands at the moment, total fury and weirdness: http://whatwedoissecrete.bandcamp.c...neration-poo poo-7

his voice kinda sounds like the guy from the Subhumans but the drum beat and droning guitar and bass line and the lyrical content and basically everything else about the song screams crass to me. Of course crass and the Subhumans sound kinda similar.

yeah the only difference is crass and subhumans loving rule (subhumans basically have 0 bad tracks IMO) and the vandals (minus peace thru vandalism) are basically unlistenable
