Loxiran - s/t 10" (per koro)
Loxiran play a heavy style of hardcore that has definite metal influence but you can also see some early 90's hardcore. They have all the starts and stops you could want, but it isn't over used. The music is rather progressive for this style. They seem to have a firm grasp on good songwriting and don't use the same old riff all the way through a song. The vocals are yelled/screamed and in German so you can't understand them but, thanks to a band that realized a lot of American kids will be listeing, they added the translations in the booklet. The German lyrics are there too if you want to teach yourself. This album along with Aclys' album should show the U.S. that Germany has the bands that will be re-defining hardcore in a few years.
