Watch & Listen
These rarely confronted and always respected leaders of hardcore were established as one of the meanest-sounding bands in the emerging punk genre, helping to initiate the term "hardcore," and placing an entire uproar on the New York map by association. From the start, AGNOSTIC FRONT released a catalogue of fast and violent punk tunes consisting of distinctive and aggressive drumming, bass work, and a non-stop barrage of chaotic shouting. AGNOSTIC FRONT’s uncontrollable drumming and fuming guitars fill every minute like an onrushing storm of flailing limbs and incinerating transistors. The heavier paced balance between the energy and discipline of their earlier punk roots strikes a taut and vivid rock barrage that moshes in close formation. "It's social politics," Roger states. "The day-to-day reality of waking up, reading the newspaper, and walking around the neighborhood. It's a hard stare on why the world is still one fucked-up place, and we tackle the very real shit that's going down: gentrification's running rampant, street justice, world destruction, working wages, and backs are still being stabbed."
Dead Blow Hammer

Garcia (vocals) in 1996.
Comb the Desert
The Hardcore and Punk scene is still alive and well in Northern New Jersey thanks to Comb The Desert, a Hardcore/Punk group formed in 2015 as an ode to the old school underground scene in Jersey.
"We come from a long turbulent but proud lineage of that vintage scene rock. we honor our past. we wanted to channel it, mold it, have our way with it. As we get older, shit happens and life goes on. But then sometimes the music comes full circle. Well, we brought that shit back."
The Loud and the Proud.
That sound we love.
