Guyver-One was a noisy screamo/hardcore "emo violence" band Formed in the mid 90’s in San Diego. Safe to say they are one of my favorite 90's hardcore bands. Guyver-One only had two releases and also appeared on a comp called "I Can't Live Without It". Their first release a self titled EP was and is some fantastic stuff. It's chaotic, fast, loud and just awesome. Their follow up the LP "obsessed with..." while being a really good album, just isn't at the same level as the EP. For fans of that Swing Kids, Antioch Arrow, Clikatat Ikatowi and Heroin style. Members other bands include: Transfer, The Crimson Curse, The Holy Kiss, The Album Leaf, Tristeza, Gemini Conspiracy, The Locust, Bastard Boy,& Cabrini

xKill Everyonex

xKILL EVERYONEx was a Straight Edge band from the Windsor/Detroit area, they played what some would call "hate-edge". They felt at the time that there weren't many straight edge bands that were putting it all on the line about how angry they were, and what straight edge truly meant. They only played a handful of shows as that most of the members were busy with their full time bands and school. As a band they released a 6 song EP (demo) that was later re-recorded in much better quality. Other bands members were in are: King of Clubz, Provoke, xTyrantx, Wreckless, Apathemy, Bottomed Out, FaceDown,& It's All Gone To Hell

Sex Positions

Sex Positions was a hardcore band with electro/experimental elements from Boston. the band was born from the break up of some of the members other band The Dedication. After making a 4 song Demo they released their self titled LP that was released on Deathwish in 2003. Some time during the summer of 2004 everyone in the band minus Eric left, so he soon revamped the band with a new lineup (which some weren't happy about), and played shows up and down the east coast in support of the album. In early 2005, this version of the Sex Positions headed out on their first European tour as a four piece, without Eric meaning no original members (pretty much becoming a cover band if you will). The group made the best of the situation, playing successful shows with Converge and others. Soon after and with little fanfare, version 2.0 drifted away into hiatus. After talking on and off about possibly playing again since the band ended original members Rich, John, and Mark along with friends Sean Owen and Dave Kocses began playing and working as "Sex Positions". After a few shows, this version of the band also folded. Some people might get the wrong idea and think the band is a Techno/Synth hardcore band but their old drummer mixed their demo with the electronic parts, and they asked him to do it again on the full length because they liked how it sounded. They did use something to play weird sounds in between songs live as well. Other bands members were in include: Outloud, Bottom Line NYC, WhatFeedsTheFire, The Dedication, xfilesx & NECKBOLTS. This download includes the self titled LP, The 2002 Demo and the Rough Pre-LP demo(which I originally got from Harshdistractions) .

Fortitude are a Hardcore band from Daytona Beach that formed in 1997 with the foundation of what they call "Old Ethics". That is staying true to your friends, family, and self. If anyone out there that is from Florida or knows anything about hardcore out here has to have herd about them, if not you must be in some deathcore cave. These guys have been around for years (13 in fact) and continue to play shows to this day. Fortitude played one of the first local hardcore shows I ever went to, so they have always had a place in my life. Things have changed for the band such as In the earlier days they used to be classified as a straightedge band & members were lost both in playing music and in life, but their positive message of hardcore has always stayed the same.

The Aquabats

I know you can find this stuff pretty easy but i've been listening to them alot lately so i wanted to post this. The Aquabats (often written as The Aquabats!) are an upbeat Ska/Punk/Pop Punk band formed in 1994 in Orange County, California. They are best known for their mythology, in which they claim to be superheroes on a quest to save the world from evil through music. As a part of this mythology the band members have adopted superhero pseudonyms and dress in matching costumes. Their eclectic live show often includes onstage "battles" with costumed foes, and the band has built up an elaborate and ever-changing backstory of their origins and adventures, along with a roster of allies and enemies. The group's lineup has fluctuated significantly throughout their career, with founding members The MC Bat Commander and Crash McLarson as regular fixtures. The bands early work was heavily rooted in the third wave of ska music, with touches of surf and punk rock. Over the years their music shifted towards more synthesizer-based rock with a new wave influence. The only stuff missing are Both of their demos (which i would love to get a hold of if anyone has them) & the "other rarities of the aquabats!" B-side stuff. Other bands current and ex-members were or are a part of include: Dig Bunae, The Blue Whales, Supernova, B.H.R., GOGO13, Innaway, Death By Stereo, Sense Field, Further Seems Forever, Hunter Revenge, Nuckle Brothers, Farside, The Goodwin Club, Bikeride, Digital Unicorn, Call Sound Call Noise, Assorted Jelly Beans, Blink 182, The Transplants, Box Car Racer, (+44), Expensive Taste, Butt Hole Rebellion, & The Aggrolites

The MC Bat Commander (Christian Jacobs) - vocals
Crash McLarson (Chad Larson) - bass, b. vocals, trombone(early days)
Jimmy the Robot (James Briggs) - keyboards, saxophone, brass and wind instruments, b. vocals
