Slap in your mouthpieces and strap on the brass knuckles, because this week we hitch a ride to Boston for a full-on historical beatdown courtesy of old-school hardcore killers DYS, SS Decontrol, Gang Green, Last Rights, Slapshot, Siege, plus more recent entries from one of the USA’s hardest and tightest music scenes including Converge, Blood for Blood, the Hope Conspiracy, Panzerbastard, and many more!
