Hungary - Budapest (Part 3)
I see no point in listing every Hungarian band ever (even if I could), so I will cut this in two parts. First part, active Hungarian DIY hardcore bands, support them if you have a chance.
New Dead Project (Budapest)
Libido Wins (Csongrad)
Penalty Kick (Budapest)
Sedative Bang (Budapest)
Tango Underground (Eger)
Liberal Youth (Savaria)
Tisztán A Cél Felé (Eger)
Don’t Say A Word (Budapest)
Social Free Face (Savaria)
Karate Kid (Budapest)
Second part, albums that are worth listening to...
Newborn - In These Desperate Days...
a defining EP for European hardcore and the best example for using metallic elements in totally hardcore songs
Marina Revue - Sikoly a mából (demo)
1985 demo of the first Hungarian hardcore band. As punk was prohibited under the communist rule, they were not allowed to record their songs in a studio, therefore the quality is shit, but the songs are still great.
Bridge to Solace - Of Bitterness And Hope
First and best BTS album, meatallic hardcore at its best.
Something Against You - 11 songs about kids without fate
Modern band, eighties sound, intelligent personal lyrics and one of the best DIY bands that were around here.
New Dead Project - This means everything
Modern band, eighties sound, intelligent political lyrics and one of the best DIY bands still around here.
Hold X True - Nothing can destroy me nothing can stop me
A legendary band, started in the nineties and have just broken up. This EP contains the ultimate Hungarian hardcore anthem, One and the same.
Redlineoffside - Élünk, felejtünk, újrahasznosítunk
A Hungarian perspective on the Lifetime / Kid Dynamite sound. And a Marina revue cover at the end.
The Idoru - Monologue
Melodic hardcore / punk with a really special taste.
