titsxmcgee 10/12/2006 9:50:39 AM

great, a reminder of how popular mediocre "hardcore" was in the 90's. can't wait for a lecture.

burzum 10/12/2006 10:00:48 AM

I'd rather listen to early-mid 90's HC than half that metalcore bullshit that's out today, that's for fcking sure. EC should really stick to playing Gommorrah and before. Everything else is pretty worthless.

13225 10/12/2006 10:07:04 AM

xcutyermulletx 10/12/2006 12:16:50 PM

xtroyx 10/12/2006 12:27:26 PM

what a surprise. another reunion. luckily there's money to be made in hardcore these days, or else EC and 100 other bands would never get back together.

ryaninstereo 10/12/2006 12:35:27 PM

fck you. despite sworn enemy, fbc, gayshop this should be alright. earth crisis is a bonus

The_Extremist 10/12/2006 2:05:34 PM

Hopefully they just play the entire Slither album from start to finish twice over. That would be SIIIIICK

soccermom 10/12/2006 2:06:43 PM

won't be there

helenconway 10/12/2006 2:23:19 PM

that stupid band single handedly ruined straight edge. they were a jock-rapcore band. i took the reversal of man side... now thats a band that should have a reunion show.

wearyourwounds 10/12/2006 2:33:38 PM

dont forget that they were nu-metal 5 years ago... dont expect their set to be firestorm 9 times.....

deadchinadoll 10/12/2006 2:37:51 PM

FIRESTORM all that needs to be said.

xjoshfromworkx 10/12/2006 3:00:31 PM

Why is Too Pure on every fcking fest on earth? They haven't been worth a shit in nearly 4 years. I said it.

CLAWHAMMER 10/12/2006 3:25:29 PM

Great. What the world needs is more bands that you clowns can kick each other stupid to.

heart_means_everything 10/12/2006 3:59:03 PM

amazing fest, face crisis better show!

eaglesbecomevultures 10/12/2006 4:01:19 PM

this will probably be stupid.

ihatepickingusernames 10/12/2006 4:05:52 PM

lol @ people still being straightedge

hardware 10/12/2006 4:19:23 PM

This band was the world to me 10 years ago. Then they released Breed The Killers which was a start to their downfall and a few years later Scott claimed on their dvd that they were the first band to bring metal into hardcore. haha, yah ok.

FutureWaves 10/12/2006 4:20:00 PM


cryptic_slaughter 10/12/2006 4:45:39 PM

fcking geographical band names

notorious_dob 10/12/2006 5:23:22 PM

a firestorm to purify this gay fest

emoxfag 10/12/2006 5:32:56 PM

they didn't play anything off their last few albums at their final show. hopefully thats all they play this time!!!

fnffishcore 10/12/2006 5:40:45 PM

Holy shit, I can't wait to not drive 45 minutes to Baltimore to see this shitfest. Oh, and Firestorm sucked. I will never understand what's so great about that song.

ridethesnakexxx 10/12/2006 6:08:10 PM

$30 for two good bands?

fuckingfight 10/12/2006 6:27:14 PM


something 10/12/2006 8:16:24 PM

i might go, but not to see EC

SeraphimNepenthe 10/12/2006 8:20:50 PM

"Great. What the world needs is more bands that you clowns can kick each other stupid to." Amen.

madisonsteve 10/12/2006 8:55:50 PM

"i took the reversal of man side... now thats a band that should have a reunion show." they're one band that wouldn't get back together to play just for money.

LEX_LUGER 10/12/2006 9:27:19 PM

climaxs furiously

11_days 10/12/2006 9:59:51 PM

fsovercrooks 10/13/2006 3:10:37 AM

fck crisis isn't even good...nor is this gay fest

Strongarm 10/13/2006 3:57:14 AM

Shitty fest??? How bout listening to HAVE HEART, GUNS UP!, SUBZERO, or even Verse or Ambitions before generalizing you fcking bandwagon jumpers...

rickrock 10/13/2006 6:16:52 AM

No care ever. EC inspired idiocy.

Konstrix 10/13/2006 7:59:38 AM


stolenbirds 10/13/2006 1:34:54 PM

EC is like Black Flag. You can hate all you want on their music, but you can't fck with their importance. I'd love to see some you weak children attempt to go the route these bands did.

hellyesIcheated 10/13/2006 2:47:45 PM

EC (especially Firestorm) is great drinking music! fck those guys though, Karl was always a skinny little fcker who thought he was soooooo great.

kenwregget 10/16/2006 3:32:50 PM

Just look at all the views and responses to this news bit. Easily the most important band on the entire front page of this site right now, or else it wouldn't have gotten so much attention. Shit talking fools.

NIGdestroyer 10/17/2006 12:37:12 AM

Its funny to look at their old goat news and seeing how many people cared.....exactly.
