Painbringer - Hellbound 10-11-12 Early Hardcore Mix

If you grew up in the 90s, Hellbound was the one thing we always listened to. This rougher sounding Hardcore was just our cup of tea, and sometimes it was all that could please us. And funnily enough, the haters of Hardcore said it wouldn't last long, but it clearly did! Back in 2012 they organised this demonic event, and the line-up was sickening! Painbringer (who made this promo mix), Leviathan, Laurent Ho, Delta 9, Mindustries, Lowroller, Synapse, Omkara, Nosferatu, Ophidian, and so many more. It's an unbelievable line-up, but fucking hell, we are nearly 7 years too late to get excited for this.

Ah hell, that's a bummer. But at least we've got Painbringer's promo mix, eh? And it's a good one. If you love the early stuff. If you are a hater, join the queue, but don't bother us, eh? Anyhow, let's focus on this promo mix. 45 minutes of early stuff, and a few of Painbringer's own productions, what can go wrong? Nothing much. At least it's filled with underrated and mostly forgotten tunes. So that's a thumbs up from TCD, if truth be told. You will have a great time listening to this! Disappointment? Nah, not present.

See! I wasn't lying when I said he used records we haven't heard before! Or not in a while. Fuck me, Frankfurt Terror Corp. Nordcore GMBH. Boy, have not seen these names in YEARS! And I'm not lying at all. Thanks Painbringer for the reliving of the moment. And also by adding a few new records of yourself!

I love that there are a handful of artists out there, still keeping the sound alive. Painbringer is one of them. Of course his biggest hit 'Words Of '95' had to be included in this mix, and it won't disappoint you. But the whole mix in general has not been something unpleasant to hear. It's been a trip down memory lane. And I reckon those who went to Hellbound now get flashbacks to when they danced on the dancefloor when Painbringer was given his all.

I've got only credit for this lovely mix! Oldskool, just the way I like it!
