|FLOWER 19- SEVEN DAYS OF SAMSARA – Discography CD
7 days are from Milwaukee and play aggressive emotional metal hardcore that reminds me of bands like Dragbody, etc. The cd contains the fuck work 7″, the split LP w/ since by man and the split 7″s w/ cobra kai + akarso. It should be out for their upcoming European-Tour in MAY 2002 …….
|FLOWER 18- FORSTELLA FORD – Dismal State of the Art LP / CD
They’re playing emotial HC with intense power and quiet parts thrown in here and there. Sometimes they sound like older FUGAZI, but with more drive in the way of old EBULLITION bands like MEREL / ICONOCLAST / AMBER INN. This release is kind of a discography with the split LP and some more; 24min of headmoving HC.
|FLOWER 17- POTOMAC – s/t do7″
Crazy Hardcore in the emoway with screaming vocals. The first time i heard this it reminded me of bands like HEROIN, ICONOCLAST, ASSFACTOR 4, MEREL. Yup, the old GRAVITY or EBULLITION school! The vocalist sometimes sounds like Andreas from ABC DIABOLO. Double 7″ with 22 min. playtime.
|FLOWER 16- DOWN TO FAIL – 7″
Swedish Metal-influenced Hardcore between COALESCE, CREATION IS CRUCIFIXION and BOTCH. You can hear 2 brutal songs with screaming vocals and technical riffs.
|FLOWER 15- SEVEN DAYS OF SAMSARA / DESTROYER split 7″
7 DAYS coming from the US play Emo HC with a metal influence, sometimes it reminded me of bands like DRAGBODY. DESTROYER from Germany play real nice old old school. they sent me a promo for a show some time ago and i loved it so much that i had to call him and talk about a release. HC in the ’83-vein and no metal here, no shit production, tho! if you like bands like DYS, FU’s, JERRY KIDS, REAGAN YOUTH etc. you’ll love Destroyer!
|FLOWER 14- MY OWN LIES / ASSEL split 7″
ASSEL from sweden play fast Hardcore like DROPDEAD with a lot of stop and go and weird breaks. Maybe you remeber them from their first 7″ and their split w/ second thought. MY OWN LIES also play fastcore. 4 brutal songs of speed and power. These songs are from the same session as the split w/ HOUSES IN TEXAS.
|FLOWER 13- STACK – Konkret Lichtgeschwindigkeit 10″ / Complete Discography CD

A swedish hardcore-band who changed their style over the years. This metamorphosis is good to hear on this release. Here is the first 7″, the 10″ and the split 7″s with JAM SESSION, CULT OF LUNA and LAST MATCH on one CD.
