Illithed


From 1995-present illithed has rocked in and out of hiatus status. Good times were had. Currently, members of illithed are pursuing other projects(not just in music). Will illithed return? Nope. Maybe? Probably. Probably not though. It could happen. What do YOU think?

This is a weird band that seems to have played many styles of hardcore. They're from Indianapolis and started out as kind of a generic hardcore band as seen in these youtube tracks. They're not particularly noteworthy so I'm not going to post them. What I am going to post is two compilation tracks where they play a very late 90's emo sound, which is quite good. They later went on to play some more generic hardcore sound as can be seen in this bandcamp. Not sure why they changed their sound so much.

The tracks are from Relics of Ordinary Life, and Songs of the Dead II: Idle Hands. Both are legendary compilations.

With Childlike Eyes


Okay, I don't have too much on this band. It's mid 2000's from St.Louis I believe. Very tech metal influenced. Not entirely sure if there is much else. I also have some stuff by hundred year hex which I will post. It's kind of meh to be honest.

I actually got this album off one of the members who played in this band. I originally found out about them due to their association with mp3.com. They kind of fit in that scene. The guy I was talking to was going to give me some extra info + some other tracks from other bands, but I never heard back from him. Maybe one day.

Anyway, it's not totally remarkable but check it out if you're curious.

Death Is Your Language


A hardcore band from Richmond VA with some grindcore / power violence moments.
They released a Split with Waifle as well as a S/T album in 2000 on 1640 Records.

 I think the split with Waifle is the what this band is most known for. The tiny description I took off last.fm is pretty apt. I think the "Richmond Fuck You Hardcore Demo" is the best of their releases. Most of their stuff is kind of generic hardcore sounding, but the last track on the demo goes kind of angsty on punk rawk ethos.

The Strange Death (of Silas Deane)



The Strange Death (of Silas Deane) was a post-hardcore Atlanta band in the style of the San Diego / Three.One.G sound during the mid-late 90s. The 3-piece consisted of two members of the recently defunct hardcore band Between Shadows, Jordan Noel and David Bryan, and then Chapterhall drummer, Lee Corum. TSDOSD existed for only a brief moment in 1998 and never played a proper show (although one show had been set up at Sprockets and later cancelled). During summer 1998 the only semi "shows" took place when friends would come to rehearsals. Although only 3 songs were written most of the material the band played was an improvisation. Unfortunately, any rehearsal tapes documenting the improvisations (we're not talking jam sessions, we're talking noise and rock mayhem) have been lost in the shuffle of the past 11 years. BUT, there is still a rehearsal tape of the 3 written songs. The tape was recorded on a karaoke machine in Lee's parents basement.
TSDOSD Line-up:
David Bryan - guitar/vocals
Lee Corum - drums
Jordan Noel - bass/vocals

It's kind of what you'd expect from late 90's emo. I'm not hearing much of the three one G sound as described in the bio. It's still kind of good though. Shrieky basement recorded stuff we all love so much, still melodic at times though. For being 1998 it reminds me a lot of the myspace-core of the future, like listen to the first song and tell me that's not 2000's. It seems pretty obscure if Last.fm is to be trusted. Go listen!

The Map Says We're Fucked


I'm sorry, I don't have much on this or I just can't be bothered since there is some shitty grindcore band with the same name. I have a recording called "Self Titled" and some youtube video with same song names, but not the same songs, or different recordings? I don't know. Either way, the self titled that I have posted is very intense, just relentless. Still melodic though. The youtube is very similar just a bit less intense. Sorry I haven't had that much time to listen to it all.
