Big changes for x43x

My friend Chip and I have decided to join forces, and we're going to be doing a blog zine based on 90s hardcore over at Stuck In The Past (http://xstuckinthepastx.blogspot.com/). We're arranging interviews with numerous participants from that era of hardcore, and our goal is to make Stuck In The Past just as awesome as the webzine over at Double Cross is. I'll try to make sure that all of the links to mp3s on this blog are kept current, but all new posts will be made over at http://xstuckinthepastx.blogspot.com/. A huge thanks goes out to everyone that has been a follower of this blog. I love keeping these old hardcore gems alive, and I plan to do so for a long time to come with along Chip.

Burn It Down

Burn It Down formed sometime in the mid 1990s, and came to an end in 2001. They were fronted by Ryan Downey who previously sang for Hardball and Warpath. He also spent some time editing and publishing Vanguard, the Hardline zine, after founder Sean Muttaqi decided to take some time away from it. I never got to see Burn It Down, because they broke up just before they were supposed to play Portland with Shadows Fall and In Flames, but I always heard that they put on a great live show. A majority of Burn It Down's discography is still in print (the Eat Sleep Mate Defend 10" is incredible!), but here is the out of print, self titled 7" that came out on Uprising Records in 1997.
