Reviews

  • Global Metal Apocalypse (c) May 2012

For a country like China to have an underground scene of epic proportions is a testament to the unformidable power of the internet, from the very first Heavy Metal band Tang Dynasty to tomorrow's Chinese musicians, this is a compilation any Metal fan should download and support.

From New Tanks slamming Deathcore, which is brutal enough to make you look a right softy, to Meat Sucks' beautiful ballad-tinged hardcore sensation. You'd be asking for more than a Chinese takeaway, this compilation covers many tastes and not just one. Noodlecore some people call it, but Nintendocore is a crossing of Nintendo music and Deathcore/Metalcore; quite apt for a console that is ironically Japanese.

  • Live.Love.Scream. (c) May 2012

I dedicate the following post to Max. He is a guy who works (/worked) for a big project: Rock in China. This project is about "Core-bands" from Asia. With "Core" I mean a lot of different music styles which have to do with Hardcore, like Metalcore, Deathcore, Post-Hardcore, and so on. Well, I have to admit that I'm not a big fan of Metal- or Deathcore, but this Compilation belied me ;)

  • Metalinsider.net (c) June 2012

Over the past few decades, the Chinese have often created replicas of things other nations did before them. Sometimes, they might even have done it better. While metalheads in the United States and Europe have been headbanging to Black Sabbath or Judas Priest in the 1970s already, it wasn’t until the 90s that the Chinese began swaying their heads to the same sort of music. Now in 2012, metal China wants the world to know how far they’ve come: They have released a free sampler titled Core In China, consisting of 20 tracks by all-Chinese metal bands, with genres ranging from deathcore and metalcore to post-hardcore, and well, Nintendocore pretty much goes without saying, geographically stretching Taiwan to Chengu in the West of China.
