MAGNITUDE (US) + MINDWAR (BE) + HEAVER (BE)
Emerging from North Carolina, the straight-edge outfit Magnitude is back in the spotlightwith their sophomore album, ‘Of Days Renewed…’, out viaTriple B Records. When Magnitude began the creative process for ‘Of Days Renewed…,’ the members were clear about one thing: they would stay true to their roots while daring to venture into new sonic territories. The result is a record with a ’90s metallic hardcore feel—filled with crunchy, groove-driven riffs and anthemic vocals. It’s not just the music that stands out in ‘Of Days Renewed…’; the lyrical content is equally compelling. From confronting personal fears to advocating for animal rights andenvironmentalism, the album delves into several complex issues. The band takes a hard look at the mental toll of the Information Age while urging listeners to channel aggressive energy into positivity. Magnitude—comprising Russell Bussey on vocals, Connor McAuliffe on drums, Matt Kalbaugh and Anthony Burke on guitars, and Alex Cejas on bass—already displayed a mastery over hardcore with their 2019 album, ‘To Whatever Fateful End.’ That project was praised for its meticulous craftsmanship and for offering listeners a rare glimpse into the ’90s and early ’00s hardcore scene.
The Lokeren mosh brigade has joined forces with BBB to release their debut LP “Still At War”. These riffers have been going at it since 2015 and are ready to make their presence known around the globe.
Their motto is: Heaver is heavier. And with this being said: we are all about to find out. Fresh and new hardcore punk gang from the coastline. Stomping and fistpumping all the way from Ostend.
First time Antwerp.
