RUINER - What could possibly go right (2005) + Prepare to be let Down (2007)




Baltimore, Maryland has never been known for its beauty or charm. With a strong D.I.Y work ethic, an honest and sincere outlook, and not to mention a machine-like touring regiment, Ruiner has been breaking barriers since their first show in October 2004.
Before releasing their first LP Prepare to Be Let Down in June of 2007 on Bridge Nine, Ruiner already toured the full United States four times, parts of Canada twice and three times to Mexico. They played a little over 200 shows in their first year and a half of existence, all of which were booked with out the help of any booking agent. Topping off the bands second year, 2006 saw them head to Europe for 31 shows in 10 different countries.
It's fast, melodic, angry, and as heartfelt as the bands of yesteryear. Yet never expect this band to begin a set by preaching about their role in hardcore. The fire that feeds them is their own. It is pure raw human emotion. You can not fabricate this type of intensity, nor can you stop it. The road traveled by these five has been and always will be by their own design.

RUINER is Joey Edwards - Drums, Danny Porter - Guitar, Stephen Smeal - Bass, Rob Sullivan - Vocals, Dustin Thornton - Guitar

Where it Ends - Resonate CD (2008)

Where It Ends debut EP “Resonate” will undoubtedly make a mark for this up and coming South Carolina straight edge outfit. These hardcore fanatics have perfected a nice blend of 90s hardcore mixed with a modern edge to it. Where It Ends can deliver heavy & aggressive music without being perceived as mindless or dumbed-down. You can hear influences from classic bands like Trial, Strife, & Judge but could still picture them on bills with bands such as Verse, The First Step, & Die Young TX. Guest vocals by Chris McClane from Stretch Arm Strong.

Sinking Ships - Meridian (2005)

Sinking Ships are a hardcore band from around Seattle, Wa. The Ships got together last summer for the sole purpose of writing melodic hardcore in the vein of bands they love, ie, Turning Point, Dag Nasty, In My Eyes, Battery, etc. To Sinking Ships, Hardcore is about having fun, having an outlet, and a place to escape from the boredom, isolation and general shittiness of the rest of the world. They’re not here as a stepping stone, to be the next big band in the scene; they’re just a bunch of kids playing hardcore cuz they love it; nothing more, nothing less. They have recently signed to Revelation Records. This cd compiles their awesome 7" and out of print demo. 12 songs in all. For fans of Stay Gold, Count Me Out, and Champion.

Verse - Aggression (2008)

Verse Aggression is a rare album. It's not often that hardcore bands will make it to a third full-length, and it's even less common that the third full-length is a band's most desparate and angry album to date. Making their name well known simply by working harder than just about any band in hardcore over the last five years, Aggression is the culmination and intersection of that experience and a wide array of influences. "A New Fury" opens the album with frontman Sean Murphy screaming arrhythmically over the band, and the six and a half minute "Story Of A Free Man" is something very few bands could pull off-a three phase narrative spread over three tracks that play seamlessly together. This album proves that Verse is just getting started.

01. The New Fury
02. Old Guards, New Methods
03. Suffering To Live, Scared To Love
04. Signals
05. Scream
06. Story Of A Free Man, Chapter One: The End Of Innoc
07. Story Of A Free Man, Chapter Two: The Cold Return
08. Story Of A Free Man, Chapter Three: Serenity
09. Blind Salvation
10. Unlearn
11. Earth And Stone
12. Sons And Daughters

Verse - STORY OF A FREE MAN 7" EP (2008)



Verse Story of a Free Man 7” EP . This is a one-time pressing of 1000 of this three track 7" EP featuring Verse's "Story Of A Free Man"-a six and a half minute long song about addition, family decay, and eventual liberation and freedom. It's a challenging task for a hardcore band to write a three song-narrative, but it's powerfully done, and we felt that it should be pressed onto its own 7" EP because it's so damn impressive.

1. Story Of A Free Man, Chapter One: The End Of Innocence
