  • holy shit! Artist Series Guitars introduced us!

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on April 30, 2011

    Yo…this is going down as one of the craziest things for me to see recently! 太疯了!今天早上一起来开我的facebook. 我一开就见到一个吉他牌子叫Artist Series Guitar的update. 这个牌子就是Joe几天前介绍给大家。他们有很多乐队的吉他,比如说: Parkway Drive, Throwdown, 还有几个月后他们将会有SICK OF IT ALL的!!!

    I woke up this morning and opened up my facebook and I found a status update by the guitar company called Artist Series that Joe introduced to all of you a few days ago! The same one that has made Parkway Drive, Throwdown and the soon to be released SICK OF IT ALL guitar!

    And guess what their status update was? 但是你们想知道他们的update是什么?这里是他们的update:

    “Rad H/C band from Hong Kong reps us…. and we rep them! Go check them out! 从香港来很棒的硬核乐队有支持我们,所以我们要支持他们!快过去看他们的网站!”

    SICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You KNOW there are hardcore kids behind this guitar company, because that type of support only comes from people in the hardcore community! 好棒啊!!!我觉得这个公司里肯定有些硬核世界的人!他们这样欣赏我们Joe的段日记,他们肯定跟硬核有关系得人。。。

    Thanks for that! This band has been around 12 years and that’s probably up there as one of the coolest things to happen! 谢谢Artist Series Guitar! 我们已经玩了十二年了,但是我可以说这还是其中最酷的事情发生!


    CRAZY! This is their website so get into it 这是他们的网站快过去看:


    PS: To anyone in the world who has just come to our page because of the Artist Series Guitar status update – WELCOME TO ASIAN HARDCORE!!! Stick around and check out the passion we all send out into the world…we ain’t got a huge scene here in Asia, but we have tons of die-hard hardcore kids here doing their thing for their Asian community, city and country to represent hardcore and help it spread it’s wings throughout this continent of ours!!! 如果这次是你第一次来我们的网站:欢迎来亚洲硬核的社会!请用点儿时间研究下我们这个网站然后过去看其他亚洲硬核乐队的网站。。。感觉一下我们对亚洲硬核发展的热情。。。

  • royal wedding? who cares.

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on April 29, 2011


    My TV has been polluted…it’s been polluted for the past few days with Royal Wedding bullshit. I don’t give two shits about this crap and I’m so annoyed that the only news channel that I get at my house is just showing this shit over and over and over. 这几天我的电视有太多污染!太脏。。。原因是因为英文台就是博那个特无聊的活动: 英国的皇家婚礼!太无聊啊!!!!


    One band that I’ve always hated (there are quite a few sorry) is that stupid band Limp Bizkit. On a website this morning I read that a man killed his roommate because his roommate used his stereo to play Limp Bizkit! WHAT!?!??! I hate Limp Bizkit but I wouldn’t KILL someone because they listened to it??? That’s crazy man…今天早上在 另外一个网站我见到下面的文章。。。认识我的人都知道我很多音乐风格都平时可以尊重 – 但是一种我特不喜欢就是nu-metal…十年前和现在一样特不喜欢。。。其中一个乐队我更不喜欢就是那个傻逼乐队叫limp bizkit. 但是,无论我怎么不喜欢一个乐队我肯定不会做下面这个行为。。。

    在澳洲有两位人住在一起。其中一个人借了另外人的迷你音响。。。他借了然后马上开始博Limp Bizkit. 另外的人一听到limp bizkit就疯了然后杀死了那个人!WHAT?!??!?!?! 那么夸张吗?!?!你自己看下面的文章。。。

    Here’s the article:

    Yesterday I read a blog that compared our brothers in Chinese hardcore crew CUA as a “metalcore” crew. I was very disappointed to read this. Of course, the writer has the freedom to write whatever he/she wants. But for me, for the amazingly positive and united crew of CUA, they represent the true beauty of what is hardcore: unity, PMA (positive mental attitude), LOVE of hardcore and I mean TRUE LOVE, passion for hardcore, brotherhood and family…to label them a “metalcore” crew doesn’t make sense at all. Metalcore is not a lifestyle – it’s just a style of music. CUA isn’t some trendy kids who came together – CUA is a bunch of hardcore fans and supporters who came together to want to do something to promote hardcore in China. 昨天我看了一个外国人开的blog。 他的blog就是介绍这个地球上不同的硬核社会。他有一个位子关于中国里面的硬核社会。他找了几位住在中国的人说一说他们城市里面硬核的发展。其中一个是介绍北京里的发展。如果你常看我们这个官网你知道我们是特爱我们CUA的兄弟和其他北京里面的硬核乐队因为对我来说,这班人真的花了不少时间去研究一下这个文化然后决定了这个文化就是适合他们自己的生活 – 可以当他们的生活方式。

    但是这个blog里面 – 那位介绍北京硬核就形容了CUA是一班metalcore的crew. 我一看就觉得很奇怪。Metalcore? 那些乐队完全没有什么metalcore的元素。北京的硬核乐队全都是比较重的 – 但是一听到就会认识NYHC或者其他比较重硬核的风格的存在。Metalcore? Metalcore就是一种音乐风格,但是硬核是一个生活方式。你看CUA所做和说的东西就知道他们是一班特投入这个文化的人。所以你怎么可以跟metalcore比较?特奇怪。

    但是没事 – 大家都有权说他们自己的看法。这位人可能真的觉得CUA那班人是像metalcore的crew. 但是我的看法是完全不同。。。这个blog的人都有请了我写些东西关于香港硬核的发展(什么香港硬核?哈哈哈。。。)然后我会坚持说我对中国硬核发展的看法。。。在我的角度来说和看 – 我觉得中国硬核的发展好厉害也特有希望。。。最厉害的方面就是爱上了硬核的人,就是因为他们自己花了很多时间研究。。。研究这个历史,研究硬核教父的乐队,看采访,看影片,然后跟其他硬核的兄弟姐妹沟通。。。他们自己建立了一个很坚实的基础。。。所以我很有相信十几年后,这些人会还在宣传这个文化。。。 :-)

    I will be writing on that website about my views of hardcore as it has grown in China. My view is more positive and supportive…so hopefully I will give voice to those people who also believe what is going on in terms of hardcore in China is a GREAT thing…

  • Artist Series Guitar

    Posted by Joe on April 28, 2011

    Talked to my bro Hehe on the phone knowing he’s doing fine in NYC.  The guy recently bought an Artist Series Guitar (Parkway Drive model).  The company also have Throwdown, Demon Hunter, Bleeding Through, Death by Stereo.  And guess what Riz?  I also see a “coming up” SOIA 25th anniversary announcement in the front page!!!

    Hehe told me he paid $400USD for it so I think it’s a good deal considering each limited series only a few hundred to be made.  For more info check out:

    Take care,

  • National Edge Day 2009 video

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on April 28, 2011


    So for all our friends, supporters and believers in hardcore up in China who can’t access youtube, I’ve decided to periodically upload some awesome hardcore videos a China-friendly website ( Here’s another GREAT video that shows the passion and emotion of a “hardcore show”…好的 – 我几天钱已经说了我没几天会帮我们内地的支持者和内地硬核的支持者下载youtube的影片然后放在优酷为了你们方便享受几个特棒的硬核乐队影片。。。我今天早上再上载了一个特热情的影片。。。这个影片完全感觉到一个“hardcore”演出的力量和差不多爆炸情绪的演出。。。

    This was taken during 2009′s National “Edge” Day (the day that the Straight Edge lifestyle is celebrate as a whole)…in this video you’ve got 3 unbelievable hardcore bands singing their hearts out (some of these bands have straight edge members and NON-straight edge members…so National “Edge” Day can be celebrated by all, regardless if you’re straight edge or not): In My Eyes, Bane and Have Heart (last show)…每年在美国有一天他们会庆祝straight edge! hahahahaha…他们叫那个日子“国庆edge日子” hahahaha…特搞笑。。。这个影片就是09年拍得。。。这个三个乐队全都是特棒特有历史的乐队: In My Eyes, Bane 和 Have Heart (就是他们的最后一场). 他们乐队里都有straight edge人和不straight edge的人。。。所以无论你是不是straight edge都可以庆祝这个日子。

    Enjoy the video…if you aren’t already into In My Eyes and Bane – THEN GET INTO THEM!!! Us in Hong Kong and China had the pleasure of watching BANE here last year and they were SOOOOOO good! Great band, great music and amazing guys. 希望你们可以享受个这个影片!我自己第一次看都是看了几百次!哈哈哈哈。。。快点爱上In My Eyes和Bane啊大家!!!记得去年看BANE演出的感觉!特爆炸!不是因为他们的breakdown先爆炸。。。就是因为他们歌的感觉和歌词让了我们爆炸!

  • what the fuck is this shit?!?!?!?

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on April 27, 2011

    What the FUCK is this shit? This is some stupid fucking band called Brokencyde. I don’t understand this shit. The funny thing is – I’m surprised this stupid fashion-conscious shit did not become popular in Hong Kong! Hong Kong loves it’s stupid fashion and trends! hahahahaha…他妈的!这个是什么傻逼的乐队?!我昨天上了一个很棒的网站叫metalsucks.net然后一打开那个网站就见到这个傻逼照片 – 这个乐队是叫Brokencyde. 我完全不明白这类型的乐队。H2O的首歌What Happened?就是关于这些傻逼乐队。但是我还是觉得一个东西很搞笑 – 香港就是喜欢这样的东西。。。你看这个照片就知道这些成员是特喜欢潮流 – 跟香港一样,所以我还觉得很奇怪,为什么香港还没有个乐队像这个乐队呢?哈哈哈哈。。。

    This is exactly what H2O sings about in the song “What Happened?”

    Speaking of H2O I have an AWESOME interview with the singer Toby in this file. It’s a VERY LONG interview so you have to take your time to read it…but trust me, it’s a very VERY good read. He talks a lot about his views on hardcore and what it means to him…说了h2o一定要推介这个采访。就是跟他们的主唱Toby…是特别好看!但是,我要跟你说,这个采访是特别长所以你们慢慢享受。。。但是值得看: H20 Interview

    This photo below is in direct retaliation because the stupid Hong Kong Police is actually using a division of the police who is in charge of investigating rapes and murders to find the people who are doing this graffiti! HOW STUPID?! Go solve those murders and rapes you idiots! This is just graffiti! On-7-9! 下面这个图片就是最近在香港街头常见到的graffiti. 我们香港的傻逼警察用了他们部分,这个部分通常是负责检查强奸和谋杀!但是现在要负责检查什么?Graffiti!!! 你不浪费你时间啊白痴!

    Listening to recently 最近听什么音乐:

    Madball – HOLD IT DOWN record…soooooo good…太好听的唱片。。。

  • 2 awesome videos

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on April 26, 2011

    If you need any belief that hardcore is alive and well…here are two amazing videos to watch…如果你还需要证明硬核文化还活着,还有火,还有十分多人支持。。。那,你们看下面的影片。。。

    This first one is of H2O playing at the crazy Grozerock music festival a few days ago…this festival is CRAZY! The lineup includes: CIV, Descendants, H2O, Madball, Sick of it All, Boy Sets Fire, Snapcase, oh my god…chi sin line-up…第一个影片就是h2o最近再欧洲的超级“经” 的音乐节演得。。。这个音乐节还有这几个乐队: CIV, Descendants, H2O, Madball, Sick of it All, Boy Sets Fire, Cancer Bats, Dropkick Murphy’s, Snapcase…当然还有几个比较傻逼的乐队: asking alexandria。。。但是大部分的乐队都是我特想看得!

    But check out the crowd and passion for this song by H2O (the song is called What Happened? Every TRUE believer of hardcore KNOWS this song because of it’s lyrics and meaning…don’t even THINK about calling yourself hardcore if you don’t know this song.) 但是在这个影片请享受观众和乐队的热情。。。h2o演的歌就是每一个真正爱硬核文化的人都认识因为歌的歌词和意思是代表到我们这几年的心态!如果你不认识这首歌那我真觉得你不能叫自己是一位硬核文化的真正支持者!!!首歌是叫What Happened?:


    Video 2: Alpha & Omega (FULL SET!!!!) 第二个影片: 如果说现代硬核,这个乐队Alpha & Omega是我最爱之一。。。这个影片他们全场表演!

    Alpha & Omega Nashville TN 4/4/11 from Colony Films on Vimeo.

    Hardcore is alive and well…it needs people in Hong Kong to fucking believe in this shit! Start looking in your heart for music and a culture that actually MEANS something! 硬核还活着因为在这个那么物质社会还有我们反对物质社会的人。。。在这个地球还有我们需要活一个有意义的生活的人。只要我们这样的比较“真”的人 – 硬核永远会存在。

  • hardcore resurrgence?

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on April 25, 2011


    I don’t know what’s going on but it seems like there seems to be some interest growing in Hong Kong for hardcore again! And I don’t mean Emmure or The Chariot or any of that fucking shit – I mean real-straight up-hardcore like Madball, Agnostic Front and Terror etc!最近不知道发生什么事但是香港突然有些人对hardcore开始有些兴趣!我不是说metalcore那种垃圾好像Emmure, The Chariot, 等等。。。我是说真正传统硬核好像Madball, Agnostic Front, Terror, h2o, 等等!

    I am a very simple man…I love my hardcore, love my skateboarding, love my wife, and love king ly chee. If I see anyone taking interest in these things then I get SO excited!我是一位很简单的人。。。我爱hardcore, 爱滑板,爱我老婆,爱荔枝王。。。就是那么简单。所以一见到他人对这几个东西也有兴趣我就很开心。。。

    A few days ago I posted up what our pal Lake Mak posted on his website…then the other day I also KC (guitar player of nu-metal bands Trash 21 and Qiu Hong) post up two videos of legendary hardcore bands Terror and Agnostic Front. 我前几天发了我们的朋友Lake Mak的段文章。。。然后我见到KC (他是本地香港两队nu-metal乐队Trash 21和秋红的吉他手)在他的facebook放了Terror和Agnostic Front的MV! 我一见到十分高兴!

    That’s just great that people are taking an interest!!! The next step is that these people who are beginning to find something special in hardcore (Of course they will! Such a pure-positive movement will only garner more and more interest if people JUST take the time and do some research!!!) is for them to start bands…我觉得这样慢慢有人开始对硬核有兴趣就是一个特好的情况。当然下一步就是那些对硬核有兴趣的人就开始玩hardcore乐队了!但是他们还需要时间继续研究这个文化的信念。。。看适合不适合他们。。。因为大家都知道不是什么人都可以选择这个文化当他们的生活方式。所以慢慢看硬核乐队的采访,影片,MV,然后跟爱硬核文化的人聊聊。。。我觉得是最理想的方法真正了解这个文化。

    Yesterday I talked to someone on facebook who said “I don’t really like hardcore – I just like King Ly Chee”. We are a band that has NEVER denied our roots…playing in a hardcore band MEANS giving back to the culture you come from. So right away I told this person “If you like King Ly Chee then you must check out: Sick of it All, Terror, Madball, Agnostic Front, Lionheart, Champion, H2O, Reign Supreme, etc…” 昨天在facebook我跟一位人聊聊的时候他有跟我说 “我不太喜欢hardcore! 我就喜欢荔枝王”. 我们荔枝王永远尊重硬核文化和这个文化的历史,尊重这个文化的教父乐队。。。所以我马上回答这位人 “如果你喜欢我们那你一定要去听听这些乐队: Sick of it All, Terror, Madball, Agnostic Front, Lionheart, Champion, H2O, Reign Supreme” 不够两分钟后他回答我 “Sick of it All和Madball好棒啊!”

    The person went to check it out and within minutes he was like “Wow! Sick of it All and Madball are AWESOME!”

    Hardcore is not for the lazy…it’s not music you will find in HK’s magazines or on TV here. To really check out hardcore you have to go do your own research and actually search for this music…it’s underground for a REASON!!! 我觉得如果你是比较懒性格的人,那你不会觉得硬核好吸引。你在香港的杂志,报纸,电台和电视肯定不会见到硬核的什么消息或者介绍这个文化。。。真的想了解硬核的话,你需要自己主动出去研究这个文化是什么。。。自己主动研究这个文化的乐队。。。歌词好紧要啊!很多人以为很重的音乐就可以叫hardcore! 这是个特大的误会。。。重的音乐不够。。。你要看乐队的态度,歌词的意思,为了hardcore他们有做什么?真正hardcore乐队是十分爱这个文化,是随时准备好推介什么乐队,什么什么本地的hardcore乐队,等等。。。


    Can “HKHC” actually come back one day? That will be quite a sight. 我开始发梦 – HKHC这个词可不可以回来?哈哈哈哈哈。。。又开始发梦。

  • real skateboard video premiere at hang out hong kong!

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on April 24, 2011

    Psyched! 太高兴!

    This is where I’m headed today to support my bro Brian’s skateshop called 852! His shop organized the Hong Kong video premiere of a skate video by one of the most amazing and legendary skateboard companies called REAL SKATEBOARDS! 我今天的计划就是过去西湾河参加一个滑板影片首映!这个影片是一个特著名的滑板公司叫REAL SKATEBOARDS发出的。。。听特多人说,这个影片十分好看!所以我兴奋过去支持我兄弟Brian (不是荔枝王的)的滑板店叫852 (他也是香港嘻哈乐队叫二十四味的成员)…我认识了这个兄弟差不多二十年了!哈哈哈哈。。。他虽然结了婚,生了孩子但是他还在坚持滑板的生活!LOVE IT! 放弃你最爱的生活就是放弃了你自己!你真爱的东西你一定会找到办法坚持下去。别跟我说什么垃圾的借口 – fuck off – 借口就是那些懦夫的语言,不是有勇气人的语言。

    Getting excited because I’ll also have an awesome time skateboarding out there and laughing for sure. If you don’t know Brian – the dude is a total clown…funniest fucker in Hong Kong. hahahahaha…虽然现在就是九点钟但是我已经很兴奋因为今天可以看这个影片,还可以滑板,还可以听Brian说的废话。。。认识他的人知道他十分搞笑!完全疯的样子。。。哈哈哈哈。。。

  • great interview with warped tour’s founder

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on April 23, 2011


    It’s great to read an interview that is as inspiring as this one below…this is with the founder of the Warped Tour and he talks about how he continues to and is committed to making sure that he’s making the Warped Tour as environmentally friendly as possible. The stuff he says is so refreshing, and it’s GREAT to see a legend in the punk rock world who lives by example so that we can all see that this is possible.刚刚看完了一个特好看的采访。这个采访是跟Warped Tour的老板做得。他所说的东西真的可以激发很多人再想一想他们自己的生活里面的选择。在这个采访里他有说他为环保的原因在warped tour改了很多东西! 特有意思。。。我觉得一位那么有影响力的朋克人这样生活真的很棒!很可以激发他人。。。

    Awesome article…if you have time, read through it and get inspired!

    Yesterday Alison and I finally found our new home! We’re going to be moving in end of May/early June…it’s a village house and we will be up on the third floor. Yesterday we went to go look at 4 different places. All the places we went to we didn’t fall in love with it…the inside of these village houses were beautiful, but there was always something wrong with the outside. Either it was too far away from a carpark, too far away from a bus stop, too dark to walk at night (for Alison), or some other stuff. Each one had a really great looking inside though no doubt…昨天Alison和我终于找到了我们的新家!哦也!我们五月底/六月头将会进去。。。我们昨天去了四个地方看看。。。全部地方不能给我什么好的感觉。就是觉得是不错的地方。。。但是我们感觉不到可以住那边。住这些村屋需要小心很多东西。。。还需要考虑很多东西因为这里的环境是比较黑的和安静一点儿。。。所以我们要看Alison进入的时候方便不方便,等等。

    Then we were about to leave to go home and our agent noticed a landlord cleaning up something and he jokingly mentioned “Hey, I just put my apartment on the market today!” She was like, can we see it? So we went up to look at it and as soon as we got inside, both Alison and I were like OH MY GOD. This was it. We knew it…但是我们准备回家的时候突然找到一个业主然后他说他刚今天开始找住客。。。我们上去了看看他的地方,一开门我跟Alison都爱上了这个地方!

    So 30 minutes later we put a deposit down and started dreaming about what this new home was going to look like…

    Can’t WAIT to move in!!!

    This is the view from our balcony 这将会是我们的景:

    Alison and I in the living room of our new home! 这是我们的庭。。。

    This is me with our landlord :-)
