Sometimes I get solicited in my inbox as was the case with Portland's hardcore band Fatal State. I admit, the first time they wrote me I completely forgot about it and didn't listen. Luckily whomever runs their Instagram is like me and they don't give up easily. I received a message containing their new music video which I immediately watched. They reminded me of classic old school hardcore and they have a girl vocalist who leads the crowd with their catchy hooks. There isn't a ton of info on the band but you can easily find their music through bandcamp and see the new video on Youtube. I saw some live footage and I would see them in person in a heartbeat. They have intense energy and every member of the band helps corral the crowd. For a while I thought hardcore was dead, Fatal State has proven me wrong. Please check them out, they are fucking great.
