To celebrate our 50TH ISSUE, and to mark SIX YEARS in press, we’re EXCLUSIVELY putting together the pioneers of modern hardcore, TRAPPED UNDER ICE , TURNSTILE and ANGEL DU$T on the cover together for the FIRST TIME EVER.
Alongside this MADBALL give us a countdown of their bands that changed the genre of hardcore forever, as well as introducing you to the new wave of HC bands, including MSRY, DARE, BOUNDARIES, WHITEWOLF, RENOUNCED, and ODD MAN OUT.
We also get weird with CULTURE ABUSE, get sweaty with KNOCKED LOOSE, and hit up the WARPED TOUR for the last ever time! Plus we introduce you to THE new punk band you need to know in the form of PAGAN, and get to the bottom of things with REAL FRIENDS.
The music man himself, JAMIE LENMAN tells us why he’s been working with the likes of EMPLOYED TO SERVE and ARCANE ROOTS, and we also see how WHILE SHE SLEEPS’ ‘Brainwashed’ record helped to change the world of metal forever, PLUS MORE!
