Buffalo, New York's hardcore stalwarts, Snapcase, began under the name Solid State. Through the 1990-1991 period, Solid State would record two demos, and experience various line-up changes. Eventually, the band would become a five-piece and change their name to Snapcase. Again, the band would record two demos in 1991 and 1992, entitled "Break the Silence" and "King of the Mountain," respectively. Eventually catching the ears of Victory Records, Snapcase signed onto the label, and recorded its first EP for the label, "Comatose." Several years would pass, and the band would show up on Victory's compilation disc, "Only the Strong," while experiencing some line-up changes. Snapcase's debut full-length, "Lookingglassself," would be recorded and released around late-1993. At this point, Daryl Taberski, who originally played bass, would take over vocal duties. The band would then record a follow-up CDEP, "Steps," in 1995, while contributing to the Anti-Matter comp, alongside Threadbare, Lifetime, Strife, 108, and many other bands. 1997 would mark Snapcase's second full-length, "Progression Through Unlearning," and a one-year sabbatical after touring in support of the record. The band would regroup in 1998, recording several tracks for its split with Boy Sets Fire on Equal Vision Records. In 1999, the band's third full-length effort, "Designs For Automation," would be released on Victory. In spite of numerous line-up changes, the band has persevered and toured countless times worldwide, as well as contributing to many comps (Bad Brains, No Borders, For Those Who Stand). Fans of sludgy hardcore may want to listen to Snapcase's pre-"Progression Through Unlearning" titles, while those who favor more-groove-oriented hardcore, similar to Brother's Keeper, will enjoy the band's more-recent offerings. hide
