Took me quite some time to start searching for HxC shows, and local bands here, but I finally met some people in the scene, and I'll try to stay updated on that from now on.
A few weeks ago, I went to see Arkangel for the first time along with Martyrs and Bloodshot. I was very surprised to discover Arkangel now features pretty much half of former Paris HxC band Es La Guerilla. I miss those guys ! It brought back some good memories of past HxC shows and the Paris scene from a few years back... Anyway, I love the pic above... I guess it represents what I like in Hardcore : some sort of a violent outlet to our daily worries, and openness to other cultures that people may not expect because they believe HxC is all about wearing black clothes, long hair, and eating babies ! lol
