Well the title is slightly misleading, but their hearts are in the right place. Hardcore Soundz is a compilation assembling 28 of the most outspoken and generally well-known punk bands of all walks of life. What the album lacks in previously unreleased material [only Where Fear And Weapons Meet and Yours Truly contribute unreleased tracks] it makes up for in it's overall purpose - to raise money for the Farm Sanctuary and the Toronto Animal Rights Society. 100% of the profits of this CD go to those organizations, which is always a good thing.

As for the bands on it, a majority of them live up to the comp's title, but there are definitely a few sore thumbs. Student Rick, Midtown, Junction 18, Limp, and more all feel ridiculously out of place on a comp with tracks from Propagandhi, Raised Fist, Kid Dynamite, Strike Anywhere, Anti-Flag, and hoardes more of more politically geared and heavier sounding punk bands.

Of course, punk is all about diversity and all that, so far be it for me to judge.

The compilation's booklet is defnitely a bit of heavy reading, with all sorts of facts promoting vegetarianism/veganism, denouncing animal cruelty, and more. It's a bit of a sensory overload - one has to wonder if they would have been better off picking one specific cause, instead of the "quantity over quality" idea.

Qualms aside, this compilation is rather diverse but still keeping it's fluidity [as you can only get pounded by some brutal hardcore for so long before you need to hear a MOOG {thanks, Saturday Supercade!}]. It's an excellent introduction CD that you might buy for a younger sibling or friend just getting into punk, as there's a bit of everything on here, and you also get to go to sleep at night knowing that your money went to a good cause.

The clip reveals that Mike did not, in fact, serve members of his audience shots of Patron Anejo tequila which had been watered down with his urine. Footage from a second camera reveals the bottles were switched before the singer took the stage.

Hmmmmmm, I don't see Underclass on this compilation, that could possibly be the reason for the bad review. Whatever, they would be classified as one of those sore thumb bands.

hey Zcott (I'm assuming that was you last time)....that was good a post....you gotta admit, the "Raised Paw" comment was alittle amusing. Not Classic Stuff amusing, but amusing nonetheless. K.

No comment, you are too stupid to know any better!

Quote: "this must be a german compilation there are some cool german compilations but there are also some ridiculous ones. look at the cover art?"

Never judge a book by its cover. Oh wait; there is nothing wrong with the cover because it is totally appropriate for this album and the purpose. Perhaps if you educated yourself and read a REAL review, you would not sound like such a tard.

Never judge a book by it's cover, have you heard of that one? Oh wait, there's nothing wrong with the cover because it's totally suits the album and purpose. Perhaps if you educated yourself and read a REAL review, you wouldn't sound like such a tard.

No comment, another ignorant tool.

Quote: "I'm sure the cover is supposed to be funny. It's pretty amusing I guess."

I'm amazed...you guys really have no clue, do you???

Quote: "fuck animals."

Yes, let's think of something really intelligant to say. It's because of pricks like you why Hardcore Soundz put out this album.

Quote: "what a sorry piece of shit excuse for a review."

I totally agree!!!

And for the last review, all I can say is "Yes Butch!". Well said...

Who is the Idiot that reviewed this? Maybe if you did a little research before flapping your large yapper you might get the review right. First of all, Hardcore Soundz is a store...hence the title of the comp. Secondly, most if not all unreleased tracks that bands submit for compilations are the songs that weren't good enough to make it on their album, therefore those songs tend to suck. It's all about the good sounding songs, not the ones that you will skip by when your listening to the CD. Thirdly, Student Rick, Midtown, Junction 18, and Limp are far from sore thumbs but I guess you are the Master of Core so it's ok to be narrow minded. Last but not least, If you didn't have such a pee brain, maybe you could understand what the booklet is trying to say, there is never too much information, the education factor of this comp is the best part and if there were more people like the guys at Hardcore Soundz, Moron's like you could get some kind of education......Idiot!

saturday supercade was good at what they did - and that was pop-punk... why are they are a hardcore compilation?

too bad they broke up- they would have been the first cincinnati, ohio band to go anywhere in the last few years.

Hardcore Soundz always brought a booth to the Toronot warped date. I would always spend more money there then everyone else combined. Great selection.

The title, for those who care, is Hardcore Soundz, because the guys that put out the comp. have a record store in Orangeville Ont. called "Hardcore Soundz". The album cover art is donr by Paul Livingstone, the same guy that did the Five Knuckle Chuckle stuff.....It ain't a German comp.

Nuclear Saturday is on this comp? That's awesome. I loved them on that Vagrant comp Five Years on the Street! What ever happened to these guys?

Raised Fist should make a song called Raised Paw. Or something. Nevermind, that was stupid.
