For Part 2 of this 4 part series, I covered the gear and tone of some of the bands I grew up moshing to. Some call it hardcore, some just call it metal–and they all have some punk elements in there–but I don’t care too much for specific labels. You just have to listen and love it, or not. But don’t disregard anything automatically because of a genre label.
All I can really tell you is these bands are heavy and their shows were always (and still are) fun as hell to be at–especially when they were all playing together (Ozzfest ’04 anyone?).
