David is Burning

From Hi Nella, NJ and active early 2000's. They are definitely more on the metalcore/tech metal spectrum, but have some relevance for being posted here. Not much on this other than that. I think this is all they've released?

All Those Birds

I have zero information on this, other than that they were from Fieldsboro, NJ. It's pretty mid-2000's skram sounding, and I'm guessing they were active roughly around then as well. These are all myspace tracks, so they might/probably have more out there, probably impossible to find at this point though.

Eleventh Symphony

Active 1998-2001, from Cincinnati I believe. They play a fairly weird brand of stuff. Sounds very 90's influenced, but definitely has hints of crazier bands from the 2000's. Members went on to Noarmsnolegs, and They Found My Naked Corpse Face Down In The Snow. The band actually sounds quite a bit like a 90's version of Naked Corpse. has a pretty good description on them if you'd like to know more. Here is all they've released. I definitely recommend A Uniform Infinity above the others, as the early stuff is quite different from the later. Good stuff overall.

Falls Under April

Active 2001-2002, and from Central Virginia. These guys play a very 90's emo influenced sound. It's pretty good stuff overall. I definitely would recommend a download of the first album that I have here. The second one is a a lot more metalcore sounding, and not nearly as good as their other stuff. Here it all is though. This is most of the tracks that I've seen floating around, but as per usual there could probably be more stuff out there.

Falls Under April

"Demo" - shares some tracks with the below download. No idea.

This Could Have Been Our Finest Hour

Edit: I randomly came across this youtube video, and reading the comments I guess these albums are pretty butchered and missing stuff. I updated the post with another "demo" that I found on soulseek a while ago. So just be aware that none of these DL's make sense, nor are they good quality recordings (sadly most of this blog is like that...) I'd fix them if I had the proper sources.

Hot Cross - Fair Trades Demo

I'm sure most of the people who view this blog have listened to their fair share of Hot Cross. Their entire discography is pretty easily accessible in and around the internet. I have something kind of random here, that I've never really seen anywhere before. It's referred to as a demo for Fair Trades and Farewells, no idea if that is what it actually is, but it definitely is rough (better than live though) recordings of the tracks off that album.

This might be more for the completionists, but the recordings are actually quite different. They are definitely pretty rough in comparison to the very well produced recordings on the actual album. I actually kind of like them better. The vocals are pretty different, and there isn't really much of the clean singing. If you like Hot Cross, and like the album Fair Trades and Farewells, you should definitely check it out for something a bit different.

The Day Had Died (Two Shades of Pain)

Early 2000's, sounds like a ton of other bands from this era. Kind of metalcore/hardcore influenced sound. This is just kind of a collection of songs, some from myspace and some that were sent to me. I would have no idea what all they've released, and information on them seems kind of scarce. I do know that this is pre Boys Night Out, and that they were Canadian. Pretty good stuff though, check it out.

EDIT: I found this on SLSK, it's a more complete collection of all their songs. Definitely download this.

The Day Had Died

Two Shades of Pain Demo (This is a band that came before The Day Had Died)

Also, some of the songs might be a bit messed up at times. They were apparently on a CD that had some damage done to it. It's just a few songs, and it's pretty minor though. Kind of sucks, but not much can be done.

Kisses and Hugs

Okay, so not the power-violence/hardcore 90's band Kisses and Hugs, but apparently another one. This was sent to me, and I really can't find any relevant information for it anywhere. The first song on here is a rougher version of the Birthday Boyz song "pass the courvoisier", which would lead me to believe this is pre-Birthday Boyz or something, but yea zero information out there that I was able to find. You should check it out though, kind of a rougher Birthday Boyz with added violin.  If anyone knows anything about this, please comment!

Super screamy stuff, active early 2000s from somewhere in the NE, maybe Philadelphia.. Kind of has a sound that was a little bit before its time. Just really high intensity and all over the place with trumpets at times. The vocals are pretty off the walls in some spots haha.  Pretty good though. Would definitely recommend a download if you haven't heard.

What I have below is just a collection of their songs. I know for sure that the last 4 songs on it make up a 7inch that they put out. The rest just seems like demos and stuff. The 7inch is definitely higher quality than the rest.

Eyeballz (Days to Streaks)

"California Hardcore screamo supergroup" in the words of another blog that was sharing this. I guess they were originally called Days to Streaks, but ended up changing their name to Eyeballz. Active somewhere in early 2000's, no idea on specifics though.

I originally had this album while ago, but lost it due to a HDD crash. I spent quite a long time looking for it again, and finally got it. Hope you enjoy. Pretty much as said above, screamy hardcore style stuff. Pretty good though. This album includes everything they've released I think, same recordings as another demo thing floating around.

Days in Hell, Nights in California



Very metalcore influenced stuff, active late 90's-early 00's. I believe they're from New Jersey. Pretty much the angstiest stuff ever. I wish I had more relevant information on them. There seems to be a fair bit of live video of them out there, which is pretty interesting. I think this is all they've released?

Emotape Compilations

I have no idea who made these, but they used to be passed around soulseek many moons ago. They were definitely a great way to find new music, and much of the stuff on this blog was originally found on these compilations. As for bands on these compilations, it's pretty much a wide variety of bands from all around the world, some popular and some really, really obscure.

I think there was multiple people making these, so the ordering for them never really made much sense. I used to spend a bit of time looking for them back in the day, and this is what I turned up with, so no idea on the missing numbers or if they even exist. Some of the files on a few of these compilations are incomplete, and some comps are missing tracks, so sorry about that, but overall they are fairly complete. Hope you enjoy...
