HARDCORE NEWS 4 "Fast Times"

Another year has come to an end as fast as ever and hardcore punk has shown no signs of slowing down, as my friend Jerry said hardcore is rock'n'roll only hope.

Without further ado I'll list some really cool upcoming and newly released albums. First I want to take my hats off to my friends at Final Round, after the X-Punch project, the Final Round demo, now their debut EP will be out soon in 2012. We share very similar tastes when it comes to crucial hardcore and it clearly appears in these recordings, Im talking about Warzone, Straight Ahead and Righteous Jams. Listen 'em Up!!

Also from Brazil, two very anticipated records are just out from local heavyweights: CLEARVIEW "Pure Mayhem" and QUESTIONS "Life Is a Fight" worth every minute, I'm talking about gold here, breakdowns that will tear your arms off.

Good news coming from Sweden, expect a warmer winter with almighty GUILTY new EP and the debut EP from CHAIN REACTION. Man! These swedish know how to rock, hard.

In France, representing the youth crew comes NO SOLUTION! with their sick demo, hope to hear more from them next year!

Two most anticipated french releases due 2012 from xDIGx and Dan Forth:

In Uncle Sam's homeland expect some serious shit coming from labels such as Back To Back, Triple-B, 6131, Iron Mind Crew... and YoungBlood that just put out 4 records! Gotta check 'em all out!!!
