Have You Jammed Yet? Part 2: Hardcore

Same deal as the last one! I'm going to highlight a genre I'm a fan of + know quite a bit about and showcase 5 or so bands inside of it that are doing it great justice but lack recognition. This day I'll focus on hardcore, hope you enjoy! Should be another mix of old and modern.
Part Ache

Although just recently broken up (not really: they're just changing styles to a different band), Jungbluth left behind a gift with Part Ache. Sure, it won't be the most mind-blowing technicality or songwriting, but there's no denying that it will absolutely destroy you. The band is going on turbo 24/7 without relenting. Give it a go if you're ready to bang your fucking head.
2Majority Rule
Interview With David Frost

Although overshadowed by later acts, Majority Rule were very influential in there day and perform the hardcore/emo blend very well. They certainly lean more on the -core side of things, as you can immediately tell from the song structuring. It's an absolutely pleasant beatdown, clocking in at that perfect time for a hardcore album.
3Cara Neir
Portals To A Better, Dead World

Cara Neir have been crafting their black metal/hardcore blend for a while and still haven't garnered a sizable following. Their style certainly peaks on this release, chock-full of riffs that are certain to rip you apart. The darker atmosphere makes it all the more compelling.
4Danse Macabre
Synkopenleben, Nein Danke.

In the same line as Majority Rule, these guys toe the line between emo and hardcore. In this case, the emo sensibilities (the vocals especially) are much more prominent, but they don't overshadow the brutal, fast-paced hardcore assault. The blend is very effective and help make this a truly underrated gem.
5Good Riddance
A Comprehensive Guide to Moderne Rebellion

A more classical affair, Good Riddance revolve their sound around catchy leads, vocal hooks, and so on. Not much else to add except it's very good at what it does and very addictive.
Songs of Descent

I'm stretching things a tad including these gents, but Yautja's music is too heavy to resist including it. Their hardcore is thrown into a sludgy mix that increases the sheer, crushing power of their sound.
