Any good youth crew / sXe / vegan / posi-core?


Title pretty much sums it up. Any recommendations? I've gotten into a few bands here and there over the years (and NEED to revisit some Shutdown), but never really got into the genre(s). Been trying to change some things up to improve quality of life and whatnot and been digging more of this music (along with some classical music for relaxation). Gave up caffeine, went from a half-assed vegetarian to a "to the best of my knowledge" vegan diet since I got back from my US trip (since fuck if I know what some of these things translate as) but still going back and forth from healthy to not-so-healthy eating, still consuming more booze than I should. Pissing tons because I now drink probably 4-6 liters of water a day, if not more. Should probably add in a daily multivitamin.

To be honest, I'm not into the million-miles-a-minute hardcore that a lot of the "popular" bands play, though I dig some of it. Just thinking it would be good to replace some of the depressing wanna-shoot-myself-in-the-head hardcore that I love with something a bit more positive and uplifting.

Obvious ones that come to mind right away are Youth of Today, Judge and Gorilla Biscuits for sxe bands.

I really like the first two Snapcase albums and the Steps EP. They have some straight edge and vegetarian themed songs. Rituals of Life from Stretch Armstrong was always an album I'd go to if I wanted to get a smile on my face. I love Bloodlust Revenge from One King Down. It's an angry sxe EP.

I don't think they're very popular around here, but I used to spin a bunch of Earth Crisis. More metal than hardcore. In This Defiance and One Truth from Strife got lots of play too. Another band that isn't popular around here but I love is Bane. I love all of their stuff. The newest stuff to a lesser degree, but the first 3 EPs, It All Comes Down to This and Give Blood still get my blood pumping. They have a few sxe songs on their EPs.

Those for sure. Progression Through Unlearning by Snapcase is still one of the best things I have ever heard and Rituals of Life is uplifting no matter when you listen to it. In This Defiance always got more play for me than One Truth but both are good.




A lot of people ask me what kind of music I like. I love "soul music". My "soul music" isnít a style, genre or niche. Itís music that is genuine. Itís a painful lyric, a dirty bassline, itís a harrowing vocal, itís feedback, itís an anthem, itís a love song, itís anarchy. Iíve got my personal favourites but in the end it doesnít matter who or where it comes from... so long as itís good and it's real.

As for newer bands. I am out of it. Newer for me that i dig a ton is CARRY ON, HAVE HEART, BETRAYED, CHAMPION. I realized age is a factor with my hardcore. I can't and will not relate to the younger bands. I stopped trying. Just get your JUDGE, YOT, BEYOND, and GORILLA BISCUITS on!

I'm in the same boat. I don't know many new bands.

I agree with you on Carry On (A Life Less Plagued) and Have Heart. I'd add With Honor. Their first EP and LP got lots of play when they came out. I recently spun Heart Means Everything, and I still really like it.

Champion fans check out Wait In Vain, they have an album called Seasons on Think Fast Records. It's pretty damn good.

I forgot about Good Clean Fun too.

^^^^^ How did I forget about them. WITH HONOR are one of those bands that I always jam. I dug the last release (this is our revenge) a lot as well. That's one band I thought would get big. I also liked AMBITIONS too. Not nearly as much as WH though.

Wow, some really good suggestions in here. Checked out Rituals of Life and really dug it. Probably assumed Stretch Arm Strong was a Christian band since they were on Tooth & Nail, which would guarantee it wasn't on my list of priorities back in the day... speaking of, whatever happened to Boycott? Dude disappeared a long time ago... remember him a lot from my lurking days.

I skipped out on a lot of these bands the first time around, especially anything on Victory after around 2000. I'm sure I'll never get into some of these bands - mostly ones that are too metal/thrash for my tastes or where I need a lyric sheet to know that I'm not listening to Caninus or Hatebeak - but I really appreciate the recommendations. A few will be in heavy rotation.

A lot of people thought Stretch Arm Strong was christian but I'm pretty sure they weren't, just a posi band on a Christian label. Not 100% sure though.

Mike, I think you're right. I looked it up, and it seems that they were Christians on a Christian label that didn't consider themselves a "Christian band."

I knew about Tooth & Nail records being a Christian label and would have ignored anything on it. I have a feeling that Stretch Arm Strong probably toured with Zao and some other openly Christian bands in the early 2000s and played some shows nearby that I wouldn't have bothered going to (though, now that I look at Wikipedia, it looks like Zao has become half-assed in their beliefs).

In any case, I skipped a lot of bands at the time who were "Christian hardcore" (and there were a non-trivial number of them) along with most of the "straight edge vegan" screamo/bad-metal bands that were very popular and hipster-ish (i.e. what some hipsters were before they became hipsters... already wearing trucker hats in an ironic way, but not yet drinking tallboys of PBR) where I was living at the time.

The First Step were awesome. I only got to see them once with Youth of Today which is funny cuz their last album (which hadn't been released yet) sounds EXACTLY like Youth of Today.

A friend of mine skipped To The Lions because he thought Goodfellow Records was a Christian label too, due to the xdisciplex releases they did I guess. I think he digs that band now though. Doesn't really fit the genres here but holy damn the album Baptism of Fire is insanely good.

I've always thought Raid were overrated. I like some of their lyrics, but could only enjoy a couple of their songs. I don't agree with some of Vegan Reich's lyrics, but always dug their sound. I've always thought they would sound really good live.

The funny thing about Christian music is that so many people hate it, especially on this board. At the same time, many here love Johnny Cash who sang shitloads of Christian songs and gospels.
