4 - CHOICE TO MAKE - VICIOUS EXISTENCE - (7") 
FLATSPOT


Formed in 2018, CHOICE TO MAKE is living proof that true hardcore is alive and thriving in the new decade. Featuring members of ONE STEP CLOSER, STRENGTH FOR A REASON, and WORN, CHOICE TO MAKE combines five of northern Pennsylvanias most accomplished contemporary hardcore musicians to form a formidably fierce and energetic quintet that delivers swift and potent blasts of raw energy, reminiscent of early BIOHAZARD, late-80s AGNOSTIC FRONT and UNDERDOG. In a scene riddled with fashion-first "punk" upstarts and breakdown fetishists, CHOICE TO MAKE delivers a vital dose of hardcore that is equally confrontational and groovy, with roots buried evenly the classics of hardcore and the modern landmarks that have shaped the genres development over the past two decades. Fresh of the heels of a 2018 demo from 12Forty Records and a 2019 promo released through the Streets Of Hate fanzine, CHOICE TO MAKE is marching bravely into 2020 with a new EP, Vicious Existence. This new material is undoubtedly the groups strongest and most serious effort to date, with lyrics dealing with our societys unbalance of power, the disparity between the haves and the have-nots, and the challenges that face any person attempting to live by a code of true morality. The energy of the music reflects this grey area of morality explored in the lyrics, with vicious riffs and fast-paced grooves counterbalanced tastefully by plodding breakdowns and evocative chord structures. In our fractured society, CHOICE TO MAKE separates the wheat from the chaff, and reminds us that we all have to stake our moral claim eventually; when the time comes, what side will you choose?

6 - COUNTDOWN - DEMO - (7")

Fully embodying the DIY spirit, COUNTDOWN is a force to be reckoned with. These young musicians are channelling legendary hardcore acts such as the CRO-MAGS, BAD BRAINS, LEEWAY, and OUTBURST, while adding their own fresh twist to create an original take on the timeless punk sound. The band splits their time between two locations: vocalist Chris Wilson, bassist Hardy Alegria, and guitarist Chandler Mercer in New York City, while guitarist Connor Jones and drummer Mike Ralston are in Boston. This does not stop COUNTDOWN from remaining constantly busy, and after writing, recording, and self-releasing a demo, Flatspot Records picked up the act to officially re-release the songs to a wider international audience. Already carrying an intense amount of energy in the American hardcore scene, with a lot of attention being focused on this "demo" release, you can expect to hear a lot more on COUNTDOWN in the months and years to come as the band blossoms and expands through more records and shows.

19 - RULE THEM ALL - DREAMS ABOUT... - (7") 
FLATSPOT


RULE THEM ALL was created with one goal in mind: deliver gimmick-free hardcore that speaks truth to power. The band was formed in 2017 by Richie Armour and Jon Gusman, who have since completed the lineup with members of diverse experience that spans a wide range of musical disciplines. Their carefully constructed and deliberately paced songs call to mind both the emotional intelligence of classic D.C. hardcore and the raw aggression of the Long Island scene they call home. The result is a confrontational blend of vintage and modern styles that force the listener to reckon with their own notions of what it means to be independent in todays fractured society. Sonically, RULE THEM ALL expertly synchronize hard-hitting drums with harmonic riffs to form an unshakeable foundation over which the message in the vocals can be easily heard and understood crystal clear. To date, RULE THEM ALL have released two crucial EPs while honing their sound live alongside groups like BACKTRACK, VANTAGE POINT, DEAD HEAT, and FIXATION. In the Fall of 2019, the band stands ready to release their most thought-provoking batch of songs yet in the form of their upcoming EP Dreams About. on Flatspot Records. This five-song manifesto, tracked by Chris Rini at Shellshock Audio and mixed and mastered by Brian McTernan, seamlessly integrates modern production, NYHC aggression, and Revolution Summer ambition to form a potent concoction that will undoubtedly leave its mark on the hardcore genre for years to come.

20 - SECTION H8 - PHASE ONE - (7") 
FLATSPOT


While still a new band, formed in early 2018, SECTION H8 has already torn a hole in the hardcore/punk community, dubbed, the "Best New Hardcore Band of 2018" by No Echo. Comprised of musicians who collectively play with the likes of DOWNPRESSER, MINUS, PRODUCT OF WASTE, HUMAN GARBAGE, NOMADS, FURIOUS STYLES, and others acts, the outfit is inspired by the likes of brutal American hardcore acts like COLD AS LIFE and early MADBALL, metal and grind acts including CARNIVORE and DRILLER KILLER, and Japanese hardcore punk acts like JUDGEMENT and DEATH SIDE. Coalescing these influences into an energetic and merciless style of groove-carved hardcore punk, the bands fury is fueled by their pessimistic outlook on society and the future of humanity. Their lyrical content depicts an impending apocalypse and humankinds dedication to conflict, its unstoppable urge to destroy itself any way that it can-be it war or substance abuse or mankinds inherit selfishness. Its a soundtrack to the end times, which is where we are living now. SECTION H8 vocalist Mexi offers, "I was inspired to write these songs due to my disgust with the current state of society. I feel a total detachment from all sides politically, and I feel like theres no place for free thought anymore, therefore theres no place for me. I wrote the type of music I felt was lacking in the current scene as well. I dont believe a lot of bands, so I wanted to make something genuine thats a true reflection of the people making it. No filter and no rules. Angry, raw, gross, negative, hardcore punk music played by a gang of close friends who move as a unit." The debut SECTION H8 release Phase One unloads five tracks in under eightand- a-half minutes, a point-blank blast of unrelenting, monstrous hardcore rage. The EP was recorded on Devils Night 2018 at The Pit by Taylor Young (NAILS, XIBALBA, TWITCHING TONGUES) and mastered by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios (FULL OF HELL, IRON LUNG, VIOLENT REACTION). The record features guest synth and samples by Ryan George and completed with artwork by Tyler Bradberry and Mexi.

22 - TYPECASTE - BETWEEN LIFE - (CD) 
FLATSPOT


TYPECASTE is a five-piece metallic hardcore outfit formed in 2017. With members hailing from the hardcore scenes of both Boston and Long Island, the band has a firm foundation in the impactful and aggressive hardcore local to those regions, with an added dose of pummeling 90s altmetal intensity that elevates their music into hitherto uncharted territory. The band features members of RAIN OF SALVATION, SOUL PROVIDER, and HELL OF SELF, and has toured alongside the most prominent acts in contemporary metalcore, such as VEIN, JESUS PIECE, and TOURNIQUET. After releasing a demo in 2017 and the EP Creature Of Habit in 2018, TYPECASTE return with their most transcendent work to date-Between Life, due out on Flatspot Records in 2020. Beyond Life is a four-track EP that tows the line between hardcore and metalcore so creatively that simple genre tags are inadequate to describe their sound. These newest tracks are perhaps more influenced by CROWBAR, NOTHINGFACE, and DEFTONES than HATEBREED with their massive production, thoughtful lyrics, and anthemic clean vocals; yet somehow, TYPECASTE never loses their punk perspective and traditional hardcore aggression, and blend the two styles with an ease and confidence that is rare in any band, let alone such a young one. Lyrically, Between Life ponders the spaces between life and death-such as sleep, meditation, paralysis, and near-death experience-and revels in the hallucinatory limbo that such spaces create. Dizzying song structures and dissonant guitar harmonies reflect this uncomfortable parapsychosis, finally culminating in the closing track "Under The Wreath" which can be construed as an end to the madness, whether through normalcy restored, or through deaths final release. However various listeners may classify or understand this monolith of metallic hardcore, they will surely all agree that it represents a major accomplishment and a massive leap forward for both Typecast and the genre at large.
