zuexeus s/t (1999-2000?)

this was a band made up of members (or maybe one member) of old NC troublemakers captain specky/cornelius..........maybe the most energetic "rockin" hardcore-esque music ive ever heard....this shit is what you feel like after drinking a keg of seattle's best and a few quarts of  koolaid and a can of jolt as  chasers........hyperactive, guitarfucking, pound the shit out of everything rock with truckloads of melody and an energy level through the fucking roof.......i detect a vague star trek obsession through some song titles and the use of a photon torpedo effect in one song....if this really is one guy who played this shit then fuck, hats off to that hyperactive bastard genius cause this shit is commin correct all day......

splinter "ten love songs" lp (1993)

by request heres the first (and only?) lp by long defunct cleveland/kent hardcore band splinter. much more sloppy sounding than the "scathed" "7 which kinda makes me lose interest a bit......has that clevo tough guy thing in effect (as opposed to the NYHC tough guy thing...i guess the difference would be more metal in the clevo sound) reminds me of infest but just a tad.......has some of those slow building intros that everyone used to call "evil" or "sick" back in the day...i havent paid much attention to the lyrics but if i was a betting man, id say  their probably of the "evil" angsty sort....anyways ill let you make up your mind about this record.
