The band is currently writing new stuff, so be on the lookout for a new killer offering !

My bro Thomas introduced me to this new kinda all-star line up band last year, and they recently put two new songs on their myspace here. Indeed, last April 2008, Thomas went to a Wisdom In Chains/SOIA show, and Mike Cool who was on tour with them told Thomas about his new band and how impressive was the line up : Karl from Earth Crisis/Path Of Resistance/Freya, ex-members of Everybody Gets Hurt, Sworn Enemy, Mindset, Subzero and him as well (this guy played the bass in Cold As Like, Merauder, Terror, and the list goes on...), I have seen worst bands ahah !


The Judas Syndrome is a pretty new band comin' outta New York City and features in its rank ex-members from Afflitus, Stifling Neglect and the former Irate singer !!! The vocals are still as hard as they were in the mighty Irate, though now the music is more metal/deathcore influenced, maybe a harder version of God Forbid !?!

I post you here both their tracks for free download (it's on their myspace as well), so check them out and enjoy listening (right click and save target as) :


Long time NYHC veterans from the Bronx/NY, 4 In The Chamber recently decided to stop the band after 14 years of existence, but the founding members of the band already started a new fresh project called Unstable Foundation (title of the very first 4ITC mcd back in 1997) !

They are now searching for a vocalist, hit them up if you're from the New York area and are a serious dude !

February 10, 2009


I ordered this fanzine a while ago and since then always wanted to share on this NBAB Blog my opinion on Pim's (Said And Done singer) debut issue, so here we go...

What came in mind first once I received this massive 88 A4pages 'zine was "Holy shit, phat first issue, very nicely designed layout-wise and it seems to have tons of stuff to read !!!", and after having read this Some Will Never Know #1 three times as of now, I'm still highly impressed by the amazing work Pim had to do to complete such a hardcore fanzine masterpiece !

So let's talk about the content, no reviews and who cares when you have such awesome in-depth interviews with interesting fellows : Jonah Jenkins (Only Living Witness, Milligram, Miltown, Raw Radar War), Patrick Kitzel (True Blue, Reaper Records, Spawn), Harm Haverman (Reaching Forward, Razor Crusade, Modern Life Is War), Andrew Westerhouse (Aversionline.com, Due Process), Ronald Boorsma (Not Just Words Records), Sean Riley (1917 Records), Rob Huiskes (Light The Fuse), Didier Baert (Losing Streak), Wouter Jansen (Permanent Mark, Clocked In zine), as well as really interesting "How To..." guides and few columns here and there... according to me, most of these being some of the best "hardcore" readings ever !

Just one more thing to add, I highly recommend to pick this up asap through Pim's cool distro here for only 3,50 € + shipping !

Good news is that Pim already started working on issue #2...more news about this later !
