- From the ashes of JOY comes a blastbeating hardcore band that you won't recognize at all because everyone swapped instruments. Raleigh NC's NATURAL END reminds me of a very competent 90's style NYHC band with 90% more anger, 60% faster, and with a whole lot of modern HC thrown into it. This would be the tape to give to your cousin who loves TERROR and MODERN LIFE IS WAR to get them one step further than CEREMONY took them towards faster hardcore. A really exciting release from a completely fresh band, they probably started mid 2023 and are already producing music this good.
