Welcome to AltCorners' Hardcore Music Archive!

MSRY – Loss

Oxford isn’t just about boat races and inspector Morse, it has a music scene too, with hardcore quartet MSRY travelling the cobbled streets with their latest EP, “Loss”. Following on from the previous year’s “Safety First” EP, getting the guys in the Guardians best new music of 2019 and played on Iggy Pop’s BBC Radio 6 show.

The Fever 333 @ Leeds University Stylus

Fever 333 live at Leeds University Stylus was an interesting night, that's for sure. The decision to not have an opening act left a vacuum of time between doors and the band taking the stage, as the sold-out room slowly filled. There was a distinct goodness in the air, however. I'd got myself on a sort of balcony, overlooking the ground below that I knew would later become a massive pit.

Dream State – Primrose Path

Dream State's debut record 'Primrose Path' presents the band harnessing a very cinematic rock sound, grand arrangements creating a cacophony of sound and emotion. Opener 'Made Up Smile' exemplifies this sound, building up to crazy and catchy climactic choruses, and even sprinkling some wonderful little screams in there.

Can’t Swim – Foreign Language

New Jerseys Can’t Swim are back with six-track EP, Foreign Language released via Pure Noise Records. Foreign Language is my first foray into the music of Can’t Swim, I hear previous records Fail You Again and This Too Won’t Pass exploded their fan base around the U.S.

Issues – ‘Beautiful Oblivion’

Issues haven't completely shed the skin that is metalcore on new record 'Beautiful Oblivion', but they've certainly moisturised it with some extra glossy melodies that make the record more accessible to people outside of the scene

Issues and Lotus Eater live at Cwlb Ifor Bach, Cardiff

After a long, hard week in work there is nothing better than letting your hair down with some amazing live music and Issues and Lotus Eater did not disappoint us as we witnessed one of the best gigs of the year.

‘How It Feels To Be Lost’ by Sleeping With Sirens review

The year is 2019 and, after much promise, Sleeping With Sirens have returned with their eagerly anticipated sixth studio effort. Following on from the poppier offerings of 2017's major label record 'Gossip', the band promised some heavier tunes more akin to 'Let's Cheers To This'.

Download Festival 2019

Download 2019 was a complete mudfest, but an absolutely incredible weekend.

The St Pierre Snake Invasion – Caprice Enchantè

Let's not beat about the bush here, The St Pierre Snake Invasion have one of those band names you just don't take seriously, like Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!. The fact is, Chunk and most other bands who have made it anywhere despite having a ridiculous name can back themselves up with good music. With the new record from The St Pierre Snake Invasion, however, the question lies not in the name, but in the music.
