Video Day #1 - Cry Me A River Fest (Germany)
NORDIC WALKING / ffo: Furnace & Bucket Full Of Teeth

Good lord what a start! Super abrasive, crusty and screamy hardcore with all three members contributing vocals.
(2019) NORDIC WALKING

RYLOTH / ffo: Isis & Amber
I was stoked to see this band and they didn't disappoint. Epic post-hardcore/screamo/black-metal. The band just recruited a new vocalist and have a full length releasing soon!
(2019) RYLOTH

JØTNARRffo: (Lone) Wolf And Cub & Lentic Waters
This British three-piece brought the heat. Plus, they were hilarious. Here's their full set. P.S. hey Justin I love you.
(2019) JØTNARR - full set

NIBOOWIN / ffo: Machina Genova & Guidelines
I'd never heard the band with their new vocalist...but color me excited as fuck. Raging, destructive hardcore with black-metal and screamo leanings. There's a new record coming and you bet your ass I'm clamoring to help release it.
(2019) NIBOOWIN

CASSUS / ffo: Orchid & Maths
Despite losing the vocals in the outside breeze, the band's set was excellent. The hottest live band in the world? Goddammit they have to be up there.
(2019) CASSUS
more videos = #1+2

LENTIC WATERS / ffo: Bökanövsky & Trainwreck
Last show? Not last show? Who knows. I do know they nearly tore the place apart, played only heavy material and had one of the Saligia vocalists taking on primary screaming duties in addition to being dropped on his head whilst crowdsurfing. Fucking yikes.
(2019) LENTIC WATERS - full set

PATH / ffo: Welcome The Plague Year & Amygdala
I'd heard demos from this band, but didn't know Sabine was going to do vocals. It was intimidating following this. Look the fuck out for this band.
(2019) PATH

CADY / ffo: Blind Girls & La Luna
This was literally the hottest point of the day, and what did the band do? Put on one of, if not the best set of the entire day. Screamo that touches the nerves. I love this band.
(2019) CADY

COMA REGALIA / ffo: ...Who Calls So Loud & Funeral Diner
Shawn Decker and company put on a excellent, entertaining and lively set comprised of material from all over the place. Legendary screamo.
(2019) COMA REGALIA

__________________________________

AUREOLE OF ASH / ffo: Closet Witch & Fluoride
Lars and Sabine of CMAR play in this band that recently toured with Fluoride. Breakneck, screamy grindcore.
(2019) AUREOLE OF ASH

ORBIT CINTA BENJAMIN / ffo: A Company Of Dead Heroes & Matsuri
This band from Kuala Lumpur and Swallows Nest hit it off instantaneously. These are truly beautiful people playing killer Malaysian screamo that sounds like it's from the mid-2000s...cuz it is!
(2019) ORBIT CINTA BENJAMIN

THE GENTLE ART OF CHOKIN' / ffo: Full Of Hell & Resurrectionists
Do you have a face? Well jam this band and you won't for long, for it is face-melting grindcore.
(2019) GENTLE ART OF CHOKIN'

REPUBLIC OF DREAMS / ffo: Louise Cyphre & Jeromes Dream
Jesus fucks christ this was an incredible set from an incredible band of incredible people. Plus there was that cover of Orchid with Natty of Cassus on vocals. Here's the entire set.
(2019) REPUBLIC OF DREAMS - full set

HETZE / ffo: Piper Maru & Black Flag
Snotty punk/hardcore that made for a very enjoyable and fun final band.

Video Day #2 - Vienna (Austria)
NIBOOWIN / ffo: Thurm & Old Soul
Bandcamp / Facebook
The sweetest people on Earth? Probably. The sickest U.S./Sweden band that North America is still oblivious about? You bet your ass. Ex-Old Soul.

Video Day #6 - Paris (France)
EUX / ffo: Daitro & Yarostan
Bandcamp / Facebook
Holy shit, if you think France's EUX sound good on recordings you'll have your brain aflame should you see them live. Astoundingly good. Sounds like a three-piece Daitro and the drummer is vocalist.
(2019) EUX - "Denis"

PUNCHLINE HUNTING SEASON / ffo: Apostles Of Eris & Isis
Bandcamp / Facebook
This three-piece is amazing in every way. They cooked us an amazing meal. Kicked our asses live. And Sean even gave CanaDave a special, much-appreciated present.

Video Day #8 - Erpe
ANTI-EVERYTHING / ffo: 88 Fingers Louie & The Bouncing Souls
Bandcamp / Facebook
Sometimes you just connect with people. On this varied bill band members rushed to the other bands' merch tables and bought up a bunch of each other's stuff, making this one of the most heartwarming nights we experienced with another band. Super political skate-punk/hardcore.

Video Day #9 - Cologne (Germany)
 SOFTDRINK / ffo: Dad Thighs & Fiesta Bizzara
I do believe this was SOFTDRINK's second show, and they're bizzaringly unpredictable song styles shift from shrieky hardcore to ambient, twinkle, indie-pop.
