    Not sure what category this falls into, but this record store day Revelation Records is offering the discography of a band called Shockwave. They were a TF-themed hardcore band from Erie, PA in the 1990s and they were pretty awesome.

    The record looks dope and even has a tech spec reader. If you like loud and heavy and TFs, this is a really unique addition to your collection.

    How can I get a news credit for this bad boy? Cheers!

    I think I need this. My son just recently discovered my stack of hardcore records, and the young ones at work are listening to my cds because now my old and screamy music is kind of cool again.

    That's awesome. I planned to go to record store day this year because I got a record player last Christmas. So this should be available at all stores participating in record store day, right?

    Haha, I never knew about this band. God it sucks ASS hahahaha. I want some transformers themed metal, but save for the samples, the actual music is really bad "metal". Hah. Decepticons wearing a lame bandana, come on... they would most likely wear the face of a human for shits and giggles rather than a lame bandana.

    Its not metal, its hardcore. It is a sub-genre of punk.

    I am really pumped for this, hopefully it will be easy to find.

    Fair enough. Still sounds like garbage, and not unlike much of the 90s nu metal garbage.

    Hehe, well the tunes were moderately better... still think the bandanas are lame, but then I've always thought bandanas are lame. I think the fact that it is trying to make the Decepticon imagery seem more human that bothers me. If anything, cutting edge military weaponry and technological supremacy at any means is far more "evil", and so any bands that would fit that sort of thing would either have to be some crazy sounding synth (since it sounds like a machine), or music much further down the dark path, which we all know is going to be metal that is black, death, thrash, doom, war, speed, heavy, etc. It's like the imagery of robbing a store or gang warfare opposed to nuclear missiles and bioweapons. One is simply much worse than the other. Rap and Hardcore doesn't do that any justice. ANYWAY I'll stop ruining this for you guys now.

    Wait, they were on Revelation Records? How did I not hear of these guys? I first got into hardcore in 97. Love the old school NYHC ... AF, Cro-mags, Murphy's Law, Bad Brains, Underdog, SOIA, Warzone, etc....

    I like hardcore, never knew this band was a thing, but I'm into it.
    Wish they had some faster songs.

    You are literally the first person I've ever seen on this board do this. And I've been here for a long time. No sarcasm. I applaud you for expressing your opinion of not enjoying something, and then bowing out to let the people who do enjoy it discuss what they enjoy.

    If more folks didn't try to convince people who enjoy something "why they shouldn't" (or boast about how hard to please they are) the boards would be a much more peaceful place.

    More folks should take your example.

    Cheers, friend-o. I am equally impressed with anyone who can take my criticism and brush it off, realizing it is simply the opinion of one person, and doesn't really matter at all in their own life if they decide it so. What matters is what you enjoy.
