Trapped Under Ice

Album Review: Trapped Under Ice – Heatwave

Trapped Under Ice emerged from the Baltimore hardcore scene of the late 2000s and quickly became one of the most notorious bands in the genre.

Live Tonight: Week Of November 17th – November 23rd: Jazz Over Grunge

Football is like jazz. It has to be intricate, smooth and on-point to overcome all obstacles. The sonic opposite of grunge. Loud, noisy, and lame.

It might be a cliche now but last night at The Bottleneck in Lawrence, hardcore music fans came together and became one big family. One giant, aggressive, moshing, stage-diving and smiling family. The “Fuck The Message” tour landed at The Bottleneck in the midst of a cold and rainy evening, but that didn’t stop the […]
