Discover CVLT Nation’s Top 6 Hardcore Bands Killing It RIGHT NOW!

There are so many awesome bands out right now that it is hard to keep track sometimes, so CVLT Nation is here to save the day with our picks for young hardcore bands that are changing the game. All six of the bands featured in this piece bring something different to the party which is why we picked them. Right now these bands are helping get me through life because their music puts the battery in my back to say FUCK THE WORLD LET’S RAGE!!! Hardcore Punk will never die – but it will change direction.


This Texas band are in a class of their fucking own – I FUCKING LOVE THEM!!! We featured them earlier this year on CVLT Nation and this what we had to say about them:

So what do we have here? Let me tell you: you are about to experience one of my favorite EPs of 2018! This kick ass record was created by Texas’s SKELETON and is called Pyramid Of Skull. Every second of this motherfucker ROCKS HARD!!! On the real, this band’s songs are raging, catchy d-beat fuelled rock ‘n roll anthems that have me head banging nonstop! I do have an issue with this record – it’s too short and leaves me wanting more! Check this out – on July 25th they kick off a USA tour and if you are ready to lose your shit, you should not miss them if they come to your town!

Unholy awesomeness – this Oakland band brings their own brand of D-Beat infused Hardcore to the game and I can’t get enough of it. Every time I hear them I want to punch a riot cop in his face then kick him in the balls. SHIT COFFINS are full of the kind of rage that gets me amped and keeps me on the edge of my seat. I am stoked to say that they are releasing a 12″ on Iron Lung records later this year, so stay tuned!




Yes, the sonic beatdown is in effect and Florida’s POINT OF CONTACT is bring the pain with their new tape that is coming out NOW on I Hate I Skate. The vibe this band bangs out is infectious and urgent. I love their breakdowns and the passion they bring on each song…We are streaming their new tape below, and make sure to peep their new merch at I Hate I Skate.




GULCH is a band you will be hearing more and more about, because they are the FUCKING BOMB!!! I really don’t think they are going to stay unsigned for long – just let the world know that you heard them first on CVLT Nation. I am so fucking addicted to their tape Burning Desire to Draw Last Breath I have had it on repeat all day. Now I want you give it a listen and see how it effects you. They create the kind of songs that prove this genre will never die.




This Lo-Fi hardcore punk gem is out now on Knife Vision and is fucking sick!!! I love how murky and fucked up the recording is, and I am sure you will dig it too. The only problem with this tape is that it is only three songs and I want to hear more!




Hot fucking damn, PERMISSION rules, and their new LP Drawing Breath Through a Hole in the Ground is out now via LA VIDA ES UN MUS DISCOS. This label never lets me down and they have done it again with this off the chain release!
