Soulstice

Dark Hour 7"

Syracuse, NY sure was a hotbed of vegan straight edge bands in the mid 90s. This 7" from Soulstice easily sits up there with the likes of Earth Crisis, Green Rage and Canon. You know what the 90s had lots of, and that I really miss a lot? Divebombs...yes, FUCKING DIVEBOMBS!!! For the love of everything I hold sacred, someone please bring back divebombs! These guys also put out a full length that I'll probably get around to ripping sometime soon, but in the meantime, enjoy these 3 songs of xvx chug.

I was sitting on the monitor right behind Majewski in that cover photo... that is, until the Sepultura cover. Amazing show, amazing photo, amazing 7-inch.

I used to be so psyched on this band. Two of the original members went to my high school. One was in my chemistry class in 11th grade. He's a terrible lite-rock radio D.J. now.

I'm Adam "AJ" Matthews, the original drummer for Soulstice and, 15 years after the fact, I'm interested in finding out what ever happened to my bandmates. We certainly haven't stayed in touch and I'd love to hear from anyone who knows the whereabouts of Dave Majewski, Kevin Haas, and Corey Rich.

I'd love to hear from anyone with some info. Thanks!

Did we do a Sepultura cover??? I don't remember that. We did a lot of covers spontaneously since we never seemed to have "one more" if people ever asked for it.

This is the second time I've seen the divebombs thing mentioned on the internet. Maybe I didn't realize I did that many, but my favorite hardcore records were always the Turning Poing 7" which had tons of divebombs, and I think the Side by Side 7" had them as well. I haven't listened to this in ages - I'll put on one of the 30 that I have at home.

It's Haus, not Haas. He's not the lite-rock dj. I have a really embarrassing picture of 2 members of this band taken while on tour. If a request is made, I may post it.
