MH Chaos singer is excited to get gaped by his idols in all out war, and their fivel goes west ass guitar players can't wait to insincerely pander to the BLM movement. Also, the singer will 'press the nine to their head'

Do any of these bands have a transgender person in it? Preferably a POC. I must know before I can show my support.

Are Pain of Truth really that big? I've got no feelings about them either way, but I don't get how they're headlining over...Merauder

Merauder w Minus? That dude's vocals suck. Master Killer, 5 Deadly, and God is I are killer albums

anonymous 2/4/2023 2:15:24 PM

Really surprised this place hasn't covered new YOTK probably cause Maddie is an insufferable twat who has no place in hardcore.

anonymous 2/4/2023 3:26:27 PM

"Are Pain of Truth really that big? I've got no feelings about them either way, but I don't get how they're headlining over...Merauder" There's no lineup of Merauder who can draw over a hundred people, anywhere. Throw in the fact it's the "original singer," who's actually not on any of the records anyone likes and, yeah, I'm sure some new band I've never actually heard is billed over them. This whole lineup is EMBARRASSING. if you took the best, like, 4 bands from each show and put em together on one night, it'd be a "maybe I'd go if I was around and didn't have ANYTHING better to do," thing.

Weakest BNB Bowl ever. Budget/diet This Is Hardcore Fest. Joe Hardcore is quietly, privately laughing at this. Pain Of Truth isn't a real headliner they're just playing last & over a total crap undercard. Bulldoze without Kevin is not Bulldoze, it's bullshit. Merauder without Jorge is not Merauder, it's MerFRauder. For those who don't know Minus left the band to avoid being fired because he wasn't cutting it as a singer. He & whoever scrubs he got have hijacked Merauder from Jorge who is of course furious with this as Upstatr BNB scumbag Mike Valente is mocking Jorge on Facebook. This is who he, BNB, DMS & NYHC are. POT is being overhyped & propped because Regulate, King Nine, Sanction & Hangman ships have sailed - those four together on a bill couldn't sell out Amityville Music Hall at this point & if it did so what? The place holds maybe 250 tops. LIHC has no big newer bands - enter POT.

anonymous 2/5/2023 4:17:21 AM

The BNB Bowl has been played out since 2010 & BNB needs to hang it up. LOL @ Death Threat headlining & being supported by Brace War & Naysayer. Bigger LOL @ Year Of The Knife having fifth billing under them & playing under snoozefest Restraining Order (another band who gets wayyy too many tours & key slots on shows & fests.)

anonymous 2/5/2023 7:53:08 AM

Restraining Order and The Fight only get shows because the trust fund baby Jake ECC or LIHC shows or whatever he goes by has paid to pay forever. He also helps Joe Snort BNB book this shitty fest the last 6 years or so.

anonymous 2/5/2023 7:55:05 AM

Pain Of Truth is a parody mockery of tough guy hardcore. The singer grew up as a rich, suburban, upper class white kid who mommy & daddy still do everything. This is where we are at.

They've been opening many of the recent shows in NYC. Total who we know sh it. 'Don't see Jake having a hand in this - more like Scanlon. It looks like BNB consulted with Joe Hardcore & thought let's book alot of bad bands from Chicago, Philadelphia & Richmond.

Can't imagine what bottom of the barrel hacks that minus clown slopped together for this thing.

anonymous 2/5/2023 11:08:24 AM

While some may have their own issues with Summer Of Hate/Rob and Steve/Crowd Deterrent, the NE Ohio is still going strong. Rob and company just purchased Now That's Class awhile back and kids are still coming out for shows. Buried Alive played there a couple weeks ago and AOW is supposed to be playing there later this month. The nu-jack scene in Chicago wishes they had shit going on.

anonymous 2/5/2023 2:22:20 PM

DMS is a laughing stock. Did you hear the last Skarhead? 1/10 Cuz Joe is a fing loser Yo I got nothing bad to say about Minus , but this seems disrespectful to Jorge because Minus always played under the Minus 1 name. I can understand why Jorge is beefing with DMS those guys are an utter joke Also FURY of Five get no love ? Hopefully cuz Joe dies soon from coke

anonymous 2/5/2023 3:33:50 PM

Pain Of Truth singer is the younger brother of both the loser brothers from Backtrack. The whole family is suburban we live off mommy and daddy. Backtrack also has Ricky flatspot and James Vitalo also trust fund babies. Many of these white, upper middle class just saw hardcore as a business model and their wealthy parents supported it. Has anyone actually listened to the POT record? Its a joke. Merchcore!

anonymous 2/5/2023 4:39:12 PM

Not only did Jorge sing on every release, he also solely kept the name going. Somebody said Merauder can't sell 100 tickets but then why were they headlining a night at TIHC last year? Of course this was before Freddy the fake Madball demanded they be removed. Brick by Brick is a joke. Even when I was like 19 listening to like every DMS band , every NYHC band, I never bothered with Brick by Brick. That's bottom of the barrel

anonymous 2/5/2023 4:44:11 PM

Lol at Count Time opening at 2nd to last slot!! These old losers have been at it for years and they still opening for teenagers. Tough guy wannabe Cholo singer got his eye socket busted by Jorge. That's the real reason you got Count Time and then Minus with Merauder it's just to annoy Jorge..

That new Skar Head is total fu cking garbage like their deadbeat dad dumped by a stripper Singer. Minus 1 played only one show: a BNB Bowl (2014 I think.)

Ezecs ex stripper girlfriend who dumped him blew me in VIP of strip club for 4 bills. Well worth it just to talk about it, plus shes a hot little slut.

anonymous 2/5/2023 5:52:11 PM

I didn't know he moved to Milwaukee, I can't bare looking at that guy's instagram. I guess his manager / label guy is paying his rent. Jasta could have booked Skarhead OR Crown of Thornz or ICEPICK. That's good the stripper dumped him. Maybe she can better her life now and stay away from him and cocaine. Unfortunately for him, he still doesn't understand that you can't make it as a rap star in your 50s.

anonymous 2/5/2023 5:54:02 PM

Yeah she was pretty. Don't know why TF she was paying for EZEC rent and life. She must have thought he was going to actually make it as a rapper in his 50s. Or she was too cooked out. Hopefully she does better now

anonymous 2/5/2023 5:54:25 PM

BTW, he actually shouted her put and thanked her after she dumped him

anonymous 2/5/2023 6:00:41 PM

Minus 1 I want to say has played at least 2 shows because they created original music it wasn't all just merauder songs. The guys who helped him record that Minus 1 stuff were 2 of Jorge's hired guns from Merauder, from the God Is I period. One dude on guitar and that big bald dude on bass. The guitar guy is DMS and guitar tech for Rancid I think. DMS been biting at Jorges leftovers for years and years

anonymous 2/5/2023 6:25:02 PM

BTW, he actually shouted her put and thanked her after she dumped him >> Cuz he's a shameless desperate simp. I don't know if you or anyone else reading this knows this but Ezec's stripper girlfriend dumped him in the most coldhearted brutal way: She left him while he was on tour with Crown Of Thornz, emptied the apartment she paid all the rent for of all her belongings & left Ezec her cat. She's a lowlife POS not for dumping Ezec but for abandoning her cat & leaving it with him of all people. I mean dump Ezec ok but leave the cat out of it & take it with you. God only knows what Ezec said and/or did to her. If said probably something so vicious she was done with him immediately.

Has to be when this carefree fool moves out there less than a month ago only to play shows in NYC & Florida a month into the move. Yep Jamey booked none of Ezec's bands which tells me Jamey has absolutely no use or care fof the guy & it's warranted. Jamey treats Ezec like his crazy uncle he has to deal with once every year or two or five. He is totally delusional. No rap skills whatsoever & he hates black people - he shows zero love to black rappers.

Hopefully she does better now >> A cucumber is better than him. My guess is she realized he's a useless bum & she can do better than him & she can. I mean look at him: Violent, cokehead, ugly, ravaged voice, ridiculous hair & clothes, no job or a job but zero ambition to even grow in the job, his ex-wife & son have permanent restraining orders against him, probably unable to get it up from all that coke, he's 51 & let's face it, a music career loser. If Ezec had any brains in his head he would quit music, just sell band merch & get a job. Also shave your head & face you look ridiculous with that tuft of hair cuz you're balding & beard. And go to rehab or see a counselor.

Any of you upper middle class kids pay attention...keep swinging on Crew nuts and you will be a 50 something year old without a taxable job because you'll probably have a criminal record so you'll go into tattooing or permanent roadie/merchguy/soundtech and will paying your medical bills with gofundmes. Tough guy health insurance will wear out at some point and those loser dudes will eventually get old and worthless. Then they cling on to some persona like Al Bundy. Being a man involves actual responsibilities and not being a dog parent. Not being some violent erratic idiot who will eventually go to jail for pointless pit beef.

Being fat, going to the gym, having parents with money and wearing carhartt is what qualifies for FSU these days.

Wouldn't the cat have starved to death if he was on tour? Is it in Milwuakee now lol? She prob left him cause of the coke

anonymous 2/6/2023 12:37:25 PM

^ My guess is she had the cat with her at her new place then dumped the cat at Ezec's place the day before Ezec's return & left it with plenty of wet & dry food & water. Pretty shitty of her to make the cat suffer over this, treat it like no touch delivery from Taco Bell. Her cat, she should take it with her. Besides Ezec can barely afford food for himself & his pitbull Godzilla so a cat is another expense figure at least $100 a month for wet & dry food, litter plus vet visits, potential emergencies & dental work after it becomes a senior cat (10 years old.)

anonymous 2/6/2023 12:39:33 PM

^^^ I'm not feeling bad for Ezec I'm saying you see that nig. ga feeding that cat enough and/or when it needs to be fed? Good food for it which costs more?

PoT isn't bad, it's just the hype band of the moment. YOTK, on the other hand, is god awful and Maddie is insufferable. Combust is terrible >> Combust get shows in NYC cuz they play for free what else? They draw maybe ten people on their own tops? Also there have barely been any new hardcore bands from NYC since Combust formed in late 2017 & these bands don't stick around. Actually Combust is one of the oldest NYHC bands from 2000 on considering there are barely any 2K on NYHC bands today - that's how dead NYHC is & no Long Island isn't NY. I'm talking bands from NYC. Maddie is insufferable because she whines about promoters booking bands because they have women in them & not booking bands with women in them. Well which is it Maddie? And how do you know promoters book bands cuz women are in them? Besides she's so feminist she doesn't utter a word about sexual abusers in hardcore - too down with Regulate to do that.

Being a man involves actual responsibilities and not being a dog parent. >>> HAHAHA spot on...or should I say Spot on? They're ill-equipped to have kids so they get dogs instead. And/or they find working single moms who have exes who financially support her kids - the best of all worlds: - They have a woman who wants/needs a man. - The mom has her own money so no need to help her. - Her ex pays towards the kids so no need to pay for the kids. - They can be semi-dads minus the financial responsibilities.

anonymous 2/6/2023 1:58:07 PM

It's prob from his cocaine addiction. She probably got sick of paying for everything and him contributing nothing. All the tours he does, merch, graffiti canvas (yes people actually buy them from him, multiple recording contracts + signing bonus, takes 95% of tour money cause he brings the same hired guns for both Skarhead and COT aside from Dijan, all the charity he gets from DMS members and wannabes, etc, etc, etc and I'm assuming that he pays bare minimum for child support, the rest all went up his nose. I don't feel bad for him because he's been in this situation several times and never changes. He also had lucrative contracts with Tim Armstrong and Travis Barker and he blew that.. literally. Now he's in 50s and same boat swearing he will change but he's still doubling down on the rap

NYHC ruined itself and one reason is all of these bands with 1 original member and all hired guns. Only dude I'll back about that is Jorge cause I'm a huge Merauder fan. If you know anything about their history, Vinny drummer and Anthony guitarist went and signed a TERRIBLE deal with Century Media through Drew Stone that saw those two get more than SOB or Jorge. So dude already got F'd back then, tried to F him a couple years ago by dropping that remastered demo with Minus, but I guess covid got in the way, got F'd at TIHC last year cause Freddy Madball a little girl. Now trying to F him again

anonymous 2/6/2023 5:11:57 PM

Yeah Jorge has a killer voice and kept the name alive all these years, God is I was a motherf*cker of a comeback album. Heard a couple demos that sounded promising for a new Merauder album a couple years ago, but nothing since. Hopefully he'll get things going again because it's a total joke all the b&b losers are rallying behind some shitty "frontman" who sang on nothing but a couple mediocre demos while Jorge is on all the real albums.

^Sounds about right… that valente guy plays in the biggest laughing stock garbage band to come out of NY. Surrounds himself with ass lickers but never accomplished shit. I can't believe people take that dude seriously.

anonymous 2/6/2023 5:30:56 PM

Somebody said Merauder can't sell 100 tickets but then why were they headlining a night at TIHC last year? You'd have to ask the retard who books that, because they're legit, worth almost nobody.

anonymous 2/6/2023 6:16:25 PM

I don't get the Minus Jorge beef cause weren't they both in the Sunset Skins crew back in the day? Minus's last show both him and Jorge sang and Minus said something like "THIS is the only guy who I would let replace me, anyone else would get stabbed" Jorge always supported Merauder even when Eddie Leeway replaced him for a bit, he was always at the shows repping. Eddie Leeway says in one video: "That's the REAL master killer right there!" Jorge even posted online that he supported the Minus demo remaster. So I couldn't see why Minus would beef with him unless it's purely a $$$$ issue or DMS getting inside his head

anonymous 2/6/2023 8:30:33 PM

^^^ Minus hijacked his band dude. Hello? Merauder "with original singer Minus on vocals". Get a clue.

anonymous 2/6/2023 9:03:44 PM

I'm assuming that he pays bare minimum for child support, the rest all went up his nose. >>> He doesn't pay a penny of child support & the only reason is he's not a deadbeat dad is his ex-wife won't take child support because wants nothing to do with him & I got news for him: his son wants nothing to do with him either. I'd say poetic justice & ultimate karma would be his ex-wife or better yet his son shoots him to death in self-defense but I'd rather he shows up to see his son & his son beats him until he drops to his knees & clings to him to stop the beating. Ezec needs a beating in the worst way. I don't get the fear of him. He's old, fat, slower than he was in the 90s etc. People make him out to be some ubbeatable monster - fu. ck him.

Now he's in 50s and same boat swearing he will change but he's still doubling down >> Here's his problem: He won't admit that he's a drug addict or check into rehab to clean up. He hangs out with people who do drugs. He goes to places where drugs are. He has zero self-awareness. If he had a braincell left he would go to rehab, get clean, dump all his enabling friends, stay away from drug places, shave his head, get rid of his beard, buy pants, get a job & stay off Twitter but he won't. Like you said he'll never change & I give him 4 or 5 years because all those years of coke, other drugs, booze, fast food, being a nutball sober is gonna catch up to him.

Hijacked his band? For one show? It's disrespectful and obviously DMS are messing with him, but come on. Minus isn't going to tour and certainly not going to put out a new Merauder album so highjacking is a little extreme as there's really no band to even highjack. SOB is dead, Anthony don't want to play, Vinny disappeared long ago. Even all the hired guns are long gone

anonymous 2/7/2023 5:52:08 PM

Hijacked his band? For one show? It's disrespectful and obviously DMS are messing with him, but come on.>>> Yeah, hijacked his band & no you come on. First off take Minus's dick out of your mouth. Second (long second) Merauder with Jorge exists. They're not doing much if anything but they exist. It's Jorge's band. Minus is calling it Merauder without Jorge's blessing/permission. Therefore Minus hijacked the band from him, doesn't matter that it's now two shows as the first Merfrauder show happened in Jacksonville Florida late last month. It is not Minus's place to play under the name especially when he left the band to avoid being fired cuz he wasn't cutting it three decades ago ok? Jorge thinks Minus is trying to steal the name & Minus is, that's it. Doesn't matter that Merauder isn't doing much of anything, it's Jorge's band. Capice?

anonymous 2/7/2023 5:58:59 PM

Problem with Jorge is he's stupid. He never trademarked the name but he's too street to sue Minus & Black 'N' Blue Productions which is what he should do cuz he'd win. He has used Merauder in commerce since 1993-94. Not as much in recent times but they've played shows & sold merch. He has a case. Harley sued John & won. If Jorge sent Minus & BNB a cease & desist letter Merfrauder would never play again because defying the letter invites a lawsuit which means having to pay for a lawyer which would most likely cost the profit BNB makes on this weakass 2023 bowl & certainly way more than what Merfrauder will make so it's not worth it to risk being sued.

anonymous 2/8/2023 6:27:43 AM

I am not sure why Jorge does not reach out to Harley. The reason the Cro-Mags shit was taken care of with clown boy John was because Harley's wife is a NYC Lawyer. Sure he would hook up Jorge.

That Vocalist from Combust is such an embarrassing try hard. Vice was barely tolerable dude, give it up and move out of mommy's house and get a real job.

anonymous 2/8/2023 4:30:40 PM

Take Minus's dik out of my mouth? How TF do you come to that conclusion based on what I said? Find ONE fing thing I said positive about Minus. ONE. I'll wait you Fing Drama queen. I've supported Jorge and Merauder forever. Minus playing this show will literally have ZERO impact on Merauder whatsoever. It's not like Jorge was going to be booked to play. Merauder has been "teasing" new music for literally 10 years now with hired gun after hired gun after hired gun x 20. Whatever is going on is between Jorge and Minus is their own business, but it literally has no effect on anything Jorge does

anonymous 2/8/2023 4:34:02 PM

Harley don't mess with ANY of those NYHC guys from what I've seen. Although Jorge did sing briefly in Harley's War, so yeah he might listen. But I mean even for the last 13 years Jorge has released nothing. In my opinion none of this even matters because Merauder will never release new music

I've supported Jorge and Merauder forever. >>> Yeah take Minus' dick out of your mouth. Jorge is not cool with Minus playing under the name Merauder got it? Good. You think it's ok that Minus is playing under the name Merauder despite Jorge not being cool with it. Wanna support Jorge & Merauder? Stop dismissing Minus hijacking the bandname after not being in the band for over three decades like it's nothing & the only "drama queen" is you. "I support Jorge & Merauder but no big deal Minus is using the name without permission." - you. Fencesitting bitch.

That Vocalist from Combust is such an embarrassing try hard. Vice was barely tolerable dude, give it up and move out of mommy's house and get a real job >> Seriously. Dude is 30 or pushing 30. His band has been around for just over five years & they're still playing first or second on NYC shows. They still haven't headlined Saint Vitus Bar. They played third out of five on their own record release show - who does that?

anonymous 2/9/2023 3:02:14 PM

I am not sure why Jorge does not reach out to Harley. The reason the Cro-Mags shit was taken care of with clown boy John was because Harley's wife is a NYC Lawyer. Sure he would hook up Jorge. >> Because he's a street guy too stupid to realize it's better to hit Minus, Merfrauder & Black N Blue Productions in their wallets than in their faces. Also it's easier for him to be angry about it than to do either. I love this guy - he actually made & posted a video of himself going off on Rick Ta Life for Rick being an ass but no video about people stealing his band's name for shows in Florida & NYC. Chickenshit. Call out Merfrauder & BNB, send them a cease & desist letter & sue them if they don't comply or just sue them fu ck a C&D.

anonymous 2/12/2023 10:54:18 AM

Hey Minus apologist who thinks it's cool for Minus & a bunch of nameless scrubs to play under the name Merauder without Jorge's blessing where are you? Herb.
