Powerviolence Music

Posted: April 29, 2014 in Uncategorized

Powerviolence is a sub-genre of Hardcore Punk, taking the Hardcore aspect of Punk and pushing it to its extreme. The term was coined my Matt Domino in 1989 and was first heard in the song “H.S.M.P.” by pioneering band Man Is The Bastard. Many people cite fhe first wave of Powerviolence ending in 2000 when influencial pioneering band Spazz played their last show on 924 Gilman Street and when the seminal Powerviolence label Slap-A-Ham closed its doors yet bands like Iron Lung, Hatred Surge, and Mind Eraser (among others) keep the genre alive today.
