Active late 90's, from Texas, I found this review of the heartless 7inch here
This two-song EP is brutally emotional and painfully chaotic; the tempo, enjoyably inconsistent, shifting between a disturbingly mellow, meandering pace to ferocious, fast-paced volatilization. The title track A-side, “Heartless,” punishes the ear with aggressive screaming and crunching guitar before inconspicuously changing to a pseudo-passive, howling guitar solo. The song abruptly shifts gears with the final declaration: “I have no home on earth,” and concludes with a drawn-out session of feedback, eerily precluding the equivocal opening of the B-side, “Through the Cracks.” This may be the most diverse six minutes in music; it is brutal enough to inspire a killing spree, yet tragically melancholic to send you crawling by your lonesome to a dark corner. Truly personal lyrics compliment some of the heaviest music I’ve heard yet; plus, it’s printed on really cool clear vinyl. This Texas-based band also has another two-song EP out on Renaissance titled Poison Apple, which was released in 1999 — a little more fast-paced, equally technical and fierce, with bizarre cover art you have to see to believe.

I can't get over how much the poison apple 7inch sounds like Usurp Synapse/The Drago Miette. From the vocals, to the experimental instrumentals. Really captures a dark intense sound not many bands have been able to do. The heartless 7inch is pretty good too, has some sweet guitar solos, maybe a bit more metal. I'm curious if they have anything else. Definitely worth a download.

Long lost band from Sweden, active late 90's. I don't typically post non North American bands, but this was too good to pass up. I've been looking for stuff by this band long before I had this blog. Just recently their demo showed up on soulseek, which renewed my search and after a discogs purchase their other release is here with me all the way from Germany. (My community mailbox was broken into like a day before this arrived, so thank fuck it made it here).

It seems this band was involved with the hxcore scene, and it shows on their sound. Definitely still pretty emo though, especially on the demo. I don't have too much else on this band, both albums here have some pics and words to read through. I hope you download and enjoy. The demo is a tad bit better with the female vocals and violins, but it's all pretty good.

The Fall of Leningrad

I don't have too much on this. Two releases both appearing to be released 1999. One with Forcefedglass and the other with some band I've never heard of called Incoming! If discogs is to be believed, this band shared members with Forcefedglass and Hassan I Sabbah, so that's very interesting. I don't think it hits the highs of either of those bands, but it's good on its own right.

It's pretty chaotic music; lots of different vocals mixed in the melody. Screamy vocals, and songs just breaking down. I'm not absolutely in love with it, but I think it's worth a listen. If anyone has anymore information, please share. I think I have all for you that they've released.

Saint Peter Ghidora

I remember I was looking for this band a while ago. Didn't have much luck with finding anything, and then I lost my soulseek wishlist and forgot about them. Randomly stumbled upon this bandcamp. It's fast screamy hardcore from Arkansas active early 2000's, seems to be totally forgotten. Pretty sweet, recommended.
