Our customer reviews

This is more than a mere book, this is the true Hardcore Encyclopaedia. Steven Blush did an exhaustive and amazing job interviewing and covering the HC bands/scene. 400 pages of pure information. Warning: according to the author, HC died around '86. According to me, Hardcore still lives!show more
