Will be skanking to folly

anonymous 6/13/2019 11:04:46 AM

This fest is definitely a reason to stay in school to not end up as these losers

anonymous 6/13/2019 11:06:10 AM

asked for. martyr AD and MPB. need some more metalcore though - all out war, disembodied, integrity, ringworm, hatebreed, snapcase, earth crisis, ptw

anonymous 6/13/2019 11:13:43 AM

What would you die for?

anonymous 6/13/2019 11:18:36 AM

Madi is not stoked

anonymous 6/13/2019 11:26:26 AM

gaygets who wear plad shirts, who vape, who are under the age of 27, and who vape are stoked for this. You dont know what "hardcore"is. Killyourself

anonymous 6/13/2019 11:45:25 AM

Imagine a life where you're intimidated by a deadbeat cheater midget who's a 6th grade dropout

anonymous 6/13/2019 12:00:47 PM

Had no idea Most Precious Blood was still a thing.

anonymous 6/13/2019 12:10:35 PM

Most Precious Upper Class

anonymous 6/13/2019 12:10:38 PM

Too bad it is not MPB with Tom. Snooze.

anonymous 6/13/2019 12:11:04 PM

Ringworm is not a metalcore band anymore

anonymous 6/13/2019 12:14:25 PM

Rob destroyed MPB. Destroyed OKD. Destroyed Recon. Destroyed a couple marriages. Destroyed friendships. And we all know whats up with taking care of his kid. What do you expect from a dude with napoleon syndrome whos email is "the locust king" . He is a l9cust who destroys or ruins everything he comes in contact with. He should be institutionalized.

anonymous 6/13/2019 12:18:25 PM

Martyr AD...hmm you have my attention

anonymous 6/13/2019 12:22:21 PM

Why isn't Chinese Whispers on the bill?

anonymous 6/13/2019 12:42:49 PM

which one of these bands are going be outed as racists or homophobes and get Cancelled by internet before this thing pops off?

anonymous 6/13/2019 12:46:50 PM

"which one of these bands are going be outed as racists or homophobes and get Cancelled by internet before this thing pops off?" I'll say one of the bottom 5 bands on the list for sure.

anonymous 6/13/2019 12:47:01 PM

MPB is playing with tom on vocals. Rob Fusco has been out of the band for quite a while.

anonymous 6/13/2019 1:05:50 PM

MPB with Tom and not Rob? fck YEAH!

anonymous 6/13/2019 1:11:57 PM

it's the nothing in vain lineup for fcks sake everyone. this paired with martyr AD makes it a go. eleven dollar tall boys and jager bombs during every other band.

anonymous 6/13/2019 1:15:16 PM

Are GUNS UP! a GnR tribute band?

anonymous 6/13/2019 1:35:48 PM

Most Precious Blood was 100x better with Rob than Tom. Get your elitist heads out of your zitty asses.

anonymous 6/13/2019 1:50:02 PM

His voice is an acquired taste. But at least he seems to be a better human than Fusco, so he has that going for him.

anonymous 6/13/2019 1:54:31 PM

LOLd at the following comments: Chinese Whispers (good memory from that "statement") Bands being outed

anonymous 6/13/2019 1:55:41 PM

man, kids these days sure have a difficult time creating band names. How disappointing.

anonymous 6/13/2019 2:07:34 PM

I'll wait for the next announcement

anonymous 6/13/2019 2:18:34 PM

We've got a great name, we've got a great team, we've got a great logo, and we've got a great name. Vein > all these other bands

anonymous 6/13/2019 2:28:14 PM

division of mind is hard

anonymous 6/13/2019 2:36:29 PM

How long until Donovan deletes all the Fusco comments?

"anonymous3 hours ago gaygets who wear plad shirts, who vape, who are under the age of 27, and who vape are stoked for this. You dont know what "hardcore"is. Killyourself" Imagine not being able to spell the word plaid

anonymous 6/13/2019 3:20:24 PM

Martyr AD and MPB are the only reason to go to this. Should toss the rest of the other shit bands mentioned in this post and spend that money on getting better bands. fcking gays.

anonymous 6/13/2019 3:25:13 PM

Rob Cuckco

anonymous 6/13/2019 3:28:35 PM

Lol not too long ago Guns Up! was considered the next big thing.

anonymous 6/13/2019 4:14:28 PM

Beware : Zero parking anywhere in this hipster ridden hellhole section of Jersey city. take a train gays

anonymous 6/13/2019 4:36:46 PM

So this the very last Back To School Jam huh? Good riddance. Folly AGAIN? LOL/SMH. Of course Greg gets Vein as he needs an actual drawing band. Of course he gets Most Precious Blood cuz hey he got Indecision the year before. Don't forget the obligatory metalcore reunion band from Minneapolis and the token NJHC show opener so he looks like he supports NJHC. What a random and shit lineup.

anonymous 6/13/2019 4:39:08 PM

^^^ Oh yeah of course he got the latest MAHC band reunion which will no doubt play fests and their own shows after this to cash in like American Nightmare did and Have Heart will do. These people can't get over that the early-mid 2000s are over and their scene (Boston/Massachusetts) has been dead since the decade began.

anonymous 6/13/2019 4:42:52 PM

Four of the first five bands listed (the top of the lineup bands) are reunion bands so imagine how poorly this shou would do without these reunions. The only band that isn't (Vein) desperately wants to be Rage Against The Machine and Deftones.

anonymous 6/13/2019 5:11:45 PM

Whoever said MPB is 100x better with Rob definitely blows donkeys for quarters. Anyone knows better. Old MPB and Indecision for the win

anonymous 6/13/2019 5:19:39 PM

Division of Mind without a doubt.

anonymous 6/13/2019 5:25:27 PM

tally another notch for original MPB. by far nothing in vain >>>

anonymous 6/13/2019 5:27:39 PM

Higher Power rocks. Easily the best Leeway-influenced band of recent years.

anonymous 6/13/2019 6:10:36 PM

Fence Cutter? More like Turd Cutter!

anonymous 6/13/2019 6:42:18 PM

Year Of The Knife and Regulate NEED to be on this

anonymous 6/13/2019 7:47:37 PM

Madi still isn't stoked and is probably wondering where all the female fronted bands are

anonymous 6/13/2019 8:01:00 PM

Year Of The Knife and Regulate NEED to be on this>> Greg Falchetto who books this annual clusterfck and low-rent This Is Hardcore Fest kicked Regulate off the 2016 edition due to Regulate's drummer being accused of sexual assault. And Madi, Ms.We Need More Females In Hardcore, from Year Of The Knife happily supports Regulate - what a champion of women!

anonymous 6/13/2019 8:07:36 PM

Kids that spend hundreds of dollars on "OG" Disembodied gear but can't him Broken Mouth are stoked. WEE WEEE, WEE WEE, WEE WEE WEE

anonymous 6/13/2019 9:09:51 PM

"Mean" Pete here. My band Ether Coven is in final negotiations (still working on vegan items on rider) for this event. This, of course, is pending my day off request at my vet tech job. I'll keep you all posted!

anonymous 6/13/2019 9:50:32 PM

more like Back To SheetRock. have Emmure headline & it'll be a real festival

anonymous 6/13/2019 9:55:06 PM

"Greg Falchetto who books this annual clusterfck and low-rent This Is Hardcore Fest kicked Regulate off the 2016 edition due to Regulate's drummer being accused of sexual assault. And Madi, Ms.We Need More Females In Hardcore, from Year Of The Knife happily supports Regulate - what a champion of women!" I was legit joking when I said my original comment. Both of these bands are fckin trash and hardcore is the worst genre. I hope it gets eradicated immediately

anonymous 6/13/2019 9:59:31 PM

To my previous comment above about both bands NEEDING to be on this....Year Of The Knife and Regulate and almost every other hardcore band suck just as bad as top 40 mumble rap. Please stop hardcore 2019 and forever. You're all a disease

anonymous 6/13/2019 10:02:17 PM

I hope this shit gets shut down

anonymous 6/13/2019 10:03:54 PM

"This fest is definitely a reason to stay in school to not end up as these losers" Backed 100%

anonymous 6/13/2019 10:20:04 PM

Sure hope this fest "organizer" checked in with the "Rose City SKinheads" before promoting this.

anonymous 6/13/2019 11:45:36 PM

Fusco is a known Cuck in the local BDSM scene.

anonymous 6/14/2019 7:17:04 AM

Sure hope this fest "organizer" checked in with the "Rose City SKinheads" before promoting this. ^Why? They're on opposite coasts. This is just dumb

anonymous 6/14/2019 7:43:17 AM

Division of Mind

anonymous 6/14/2019 7:57:38 AM

Skam Dust here. I'll be signing polaroids I took of my naked Puerto Rican girlfriend in the parking lot. DMS

anonymous 6/14/2019 9:22:26 AM

Sure hope this fest "organizer" checked in with the "Rose City SKinheads" before promoting this. ^Why? They're on opposite coasts. This is just dumb You must be new around here. The Rose City Skinheads will be "checking in" with you soon to let you know "what's what"

anonymous 6/14/2019 9:24:32 AM

^^ YO SKAM IT EZEC. THAT SHIT MAKING YOU THE CASH sageA? I BEEN SELLIN MY TOP BITCH ALL OVER THE INTERNET BUT THE MONEY AINT COMIN IN G. QUEENS DONT PLAY. RIP POP MASTER FABEL.

anonymous 6/14/2019 9:35:32 AM

Hey web-bitch how does it feel to be manhandled by a midget deadbeat loser? Please share

anonymous 6/14/2019 10:13:27 AM

"Imagine a life where you're intimidated by a deadbeat cheater midget who's a 6th grade dropout" ***I*** had the complete unfortunate situation where the loser was talking about fights he's been in. I could tell the guys never thrown a punch by how he was talking, you know "big big talk" about some tour in EU with MPB. Guy is trash, breath stinks and his baby momma is a really nice women that is taken care of by Robs DAD. Houses the kid and the women. Rob is pathetic.

anonymous 6/14/2019 10:16:58 AM

..continued. I really hope anyone who actually holds a ounce of respect for that loser really takes a good look at themselves and don't be manipulated by the angstful sophmoric "peotry" that gay posts on IG. He is about as deep and annoying as a papercut. OKD first singer was 100% better, MPB first singer was 100% better, Recon? I don't know but they are better off without. Fight me irl rob, you pssy little douchebag.

anonymous 6/14/2019 11:13:43 AM

Whats the backstory on why everyone hates Rob Fusco? Same for Greg?

anonymous 6/14/2019 11:18:43 AM

I knew nothing of fusco before coming to this site. I'd like to keep it that way. Dude seems like a piece of shit

anonymous 6/14/2019 11:22:00 AM

Lololol @ Year of the knife. Imagine promoting straight edge in 2019.

anonymous 6/14/2019 11:30:17 AM

The silver lining to hardcore fests is the gold you see in the comments. I can't get enough (of the comments).

anonymous 6/14/2019 11:56:39 AM

I was legit joking when I said my original comment. Both of these bands are fckin trash and hardcore is the worst genre. I hope it gets eradicated immediately > I know you were joking, I just wanted to remind everyone Regulate is a POS band with a lowlife drummer supported by Greg, Madi, and Joe Hardcore.

anonymous 6/14/2019 11:59:36 AM

Lololol @ Year of the knife. Imagine promoting straight edge in 2019.>>> ...and being a grown adult who says you can't criticize straightedge if you're not straightedge (Madi) when it's not criticism of straightedge, rather the "I'm straightedge thus holier than thous/better than you attitude" so many like Madi espouse. Besides so what/ok/and? that you don't drink, smoke, or do drugs - I don't either. It doesn't define my life.

anonymous 6/14/2019 12:32:01 PM

28 states with legal dank > straightedge

anonymous 6/14/2019 12:39:29 PM

Weed > drugs

anonymous 6/14/2019 12:52:02 PM

You could tell everyone in MPB hated Rob anyway... its a shame, they once had a unique vocalist who sounded like a screaming fcking ghost, and all their shit had this evil haunting vibe to it. Then they brought in Fusco. A generic less powerful jamey jasta copy. Their career slowly dwindled with each album

anonymous 6/14/2019 12:54:54 PM

Madi is the poster child for whats wrong with hardcore in 2019. Cute girl who simultaneously preaches social justice and dickrides violent criminals all for scene clout. You're a rich suburban kid, and theres nothing wrong with that until you start cosplaying as someone who grew up on the streets

anonymous 6/14/2019 1:03:31 PM

Lol remember when Ezec was filming a reality tv pilot called "raising dillenger" with his skeleton voodoo native ex wife? Wonder why that wasnt picked up? Lol

anonymous 6/14/2019 1:07:28 PM

Ezec was filming a show???

anonymous 6/14/2019 1:09:16 PM

Isnt that what i just said

anonymous 6/14/2019 1:13:21 PM

MOG LBU HERE. FOR THE SMALL PRICE OF $30 PER MONTH YOU CAN VIEW EVERY PART OF ME MATES. MADI, THIS IS HOW YOU MAKE THE CASH SWEETHEART

anonymous 6/14/2019 5:37:57 PM

LOL & SMH that Ezec named his son Dillinger Moses Singer so his son would have the initials DMS thus he turned his son's name into the name of his gang. No wonder his ex-wife has custody of the kid and when is this fat, sloppy ni gga gonna move to where his son lives? Ezec's son lives in the Bay Area with his mother while Ezec lives in Jersey City with his stripper girlfriend. Move back to Cali to be where your son is you deadbeat dad chump!

anonymous 6/14/2019 5:47:40 PM

Yo I'm Lord Ezec. I love absolutely LOVE my son yet I live over 3000 miles away from him instead of within 3000 seconds of him.

anonymous 6/14/2019 7:20:31 PM

Madi's new haircut is stoked

anonymous 6/14/2019 8:27:35 PM

Yo! Pengu LBU here. I'm a fake Yardie. I'm gonna get smacked up by some real Jamaicans real soon.

anonymous 6/14/2019 10:56:41 PM

Healeys wack

anonymous 6/14/2019 11:35:24 PM

K00L SkAm DuSt here. Legendary Corona Queens graffiti bomber, and legendary multi-media artist. I love to trick foreigners that I'm a big name rock star back in America. The easiest ones to scam have been: Chinese (idiots), South Africans (gullible fools), Indonesian (broke bustas), and especially the Japanesee (I am their god). If you know of any other peoples to scam, let me know sagea. Final Skarhead record out soon featuring myself, Joe Fatal, and Pop Master Fabel.

anonymous 6/15/2019 1:47:55 AM

Healeys wack >> You know who's "wack"? You, Stikman (real name James Ismean/Ramen LOL) for hijacking Rick Ta Life's band, claiming it as your own, and singing Rick's words. And like Lord Ezec and that sunglasses wearing idiot Skam Dust you can't rap for shit.

anonymous 6/15/2019 1:50:20 AM

LOL @ Lord Ezec and Skam Dust doing a video in hipster Greenpoint - so street. Hey, they can't do it in actual Corona, Queens cuz real gangbangers wanna kill them so... Ezec is so finished in NYC he filmed a video in MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN. Chickenshit!

anonymous 6/15/2019 3:51:31 AM

Vincent here from TAS. Frankie from Emmure is a phaget with BOB Sagget. I sheetrock you not.

anonymous 6/15/2019 8:03:11 AM

what's the scene going to be like in 2020

anonymous 6/15/2019 9:34:19 AM

Come with me Stik we gonna start makin the cash. Robbin old folks and doin the dash.

anonymous 6/15/2019 6:48:19 PM

One NJHC band playing first on this - way to support NJHC Greg.

anonymous 6/15/2019 7:32:39 PM

what's the scene going to be like in 2020 >> Worse than 2019.

anonymous 6/17/2019 6:50:31 AM
