been meaning to post both of these bands for a while but just hadn't gotten around to it, and then someone in the chat box requested phoenix bodies so what the hell, here they are. these bands were not connected by any members but they are fairly similar and they are both essential. somewhere between screamo, hardcore, grind, and emoviolence lies whatever genre would include these two monstrous noisemakers. forcefedglass was around in the late 90s to early 2000s and is probably most notable for their drummer. ben fucking koller. phoenix bodies was late 90s as well but I think lasted a little longer into the 2000s. and also notable for including carl byers who was a part of one of my favorite bands, the now defunct coffinworm. also both bands featured members of a lot of other screamo/hardcore bands of the same era that I'm not even going to attempt to list.
fun fact: apparently phoenix bodies had a thing about playing naked. imagine my disappointment when I ripped open the plastic on my copy of "too much information" and started flipping through the booklet and looking at all the band pics. wieners. wieners everywhere. I was not prepared. you go download now.
(male nudity not included) (sorry) (or, youre welcome) (depends on how you look at it I guess)
