So it’s official im mental, lately i have started to actually get help so that i have a chance of being in a consistent state of okayish happiness or something for the future. From now on i should be able to properly live my life.
think this was from Australia’s Four in a Row Magazine.. Marco Hintze had the ill spins before anyone.
When I started traveling for skating in the mid-90’s I kept journals. During that time, I made a total of 40+ journals filled with sketches, magazines clippings, and just about everything that influenced me at that particular time. Looking through them now—nearly 15 years later—caught me off guard. There are tons of great deals in them, so I decided to scan and share them with everyone. The first book I dug up was from 1998. It has a green cover with an old England Clothing and Rise Above Clothing sticker on it.
Amazing i have this copy of dna mag issue 2 i believe?
Like many of the people that follow me on here i have been somewhat cynical about the contribution of Christian kids to the 90’s hardcore scene. Christian metalcore for me has always equalled pure fucking cheese and fucking stupid crabcore riffs. But there are a few exception to the rule, notably other than focal point excessive force were christian and sounded hard as nails. Anyway Focal point were a band from cali and were around in the mid 90’s and released a surprisingly really good record. The suffering of the masses for Christian hardcore record is actually quite dark sounding and deals with some quite intense subject matters. Also before you ask i have no idea whether they were prolife or not but anyway here it is. The question is really is how did they go from this to awful bands like demonhunter etc as in typical christian crap metal.
