  • VERSE…HAVE HEART IN KOREA

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on August 26, 2008

    My brother Ki in the Korean hardcore band called The Geeks told me yesterday on MSN that Have Heart is touring Korea next month! That’s awesome…I don’t know if Have Heart would be a band that would garner much interest in Hong Kong…but that would be an awesome band to watch in a setting where kids go crazy singing along…

    I don’t know if I’ve mentioned Verse before…but that is a GREAT hardcore band…great lyrics…go check them out if you haven’t already!!! click here

    我韩国兄弟Ki(韩国hardcore乐队The Geeks的主唱)昨天跟我说下个月Have Heart将会去韩国演出!!! 韩国真的很幸运! :-) 可是我不知道如果他们来香港的话几个人会去看…这个hardcore风格我觉得没有那么多人喜欢…anyway…看Have Heart在一个很热情的环境一定是最理想的…

    Anyway…我不知道我有没有介绍一个hardcore乐队叫Verse…可是大家应该要试他们的音乐!!! SOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD!!! 歌词特有意思…click here

    内地的朋友们…这几天我们应该会通知大家一个很好的稍息! :-) 等多几天!

    Last thing…check out this DVD trailer for an awesome RIP band called Guns Up! 你们可以过去这个网站看一个hardcore乐队叫Guns Up的新DVD…THIS IS A HARDCORE SHOW!!! 这个是一个真正的HARDCORE演出…click here

  • BETRAYED的纪录影片DOCUMENTARY VIDEO

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on August 26, 2008

    Good band called Betrayed (featuring members of Champion and others…) put up a documentary thing about themselves…the band is not together anymore…but a pretty cool little video…learn more about hardcore through these little things…

    Betrayed是一个乐队从另外一个很有名hardcore乐队叫Champion开始的…Champion的吉他手开始了Betrayed因为他很想唱歌…反正这两个乐队也没有了…可是有一个网站上载了一个短的纪录影片关于Betrayed…

    I do think it’s weird that hardcore bands in the US only play for like 3 or 4 years and then end…of course, hardcore bands in the US are not like us in Asia…in Asia there’s no way we can quit our jobs and committ to touring for months and months like they do in the US. In the US bands quit jobs, tour for months and months, come back home and record a new album, and then tour again for months and months…of course this must be a tiring and crazy type of life to lead. For us in Asia, we all have dayjobs to pay the bills, and hopefully allow us to make enough money to do short tours around Asia, maybe record, and then do some more short tours. Not many Asians band do this…we’re one of the few that spend our own money and continue to play here and there, here and there…可是我要说…我觉得在美国每次看到多一个hardcore乐队放弃, 我觉得是很奇怪也很失败的…因为他们的歌词通常是关于改变…改变自己的生活和生命…可是如果你们这样的歌词然后给生命的压力让你放弃 – 真的不是一个好的东西 – 还是代表一个不太好的态度. 当然在美国做一个乐队跟亚洲做一个真的太不同的. 在美国为了他们的乐队全队的成员一定会放弃他们的工作. 他们每年会去几个月再几个月的tour. 然后回家再录音, 然后再tour…这样的生命当然会有很多压力因为你不知道明天够不够钱付大家的费用. 在亚洲我们大家一定有工作…为了tour大家会试储蓄一点儿钱…tour当然没有美国乐队那么长时间 – 可惜了, 如果可以跟他们一样去几个月的tour一定会对全亚洲音乐的情况特有用. 刚写的时候我有留意没有那么的多亚洲的乐队会这样tour – 就是我们这样的乐队, 我们九年后还在付出自己的钱买机票为去tour…

    But my point still is – I wish more of these bands in the US would stay together for a longer period of time. I think if they stuck around for a long period of time, their would be a lot more sincerity in those lyrics about “change” that they sing about…it just seems like their message is lost once they decide to end their band.

    可是我的意思是…我还觉得那么多美国乐队太早玩完他们的乐队…有很多乐队的歌词特有意思…如果在坚持他们的乐队可以带他们的乐队更有意思…

    所以我觉得Sick of it All这样的乐队是我自己的英雄…他们已经玩了二十多年的时间…还在坚持…还没有放弃这个文化, 这个音乐…

    就是我的意见…

    ANYWAY!!!

    Check out the photos from that hardcore/metalcore show last week in Beijing that our bro Paul organized!!! awesome pics!!! 大家过去这个网站看上个礼拜在北京hardcore/metalcore的演出! 这个是我们兄弟Paul安排的演出:

  • HARDCORE and METALCORE SHOW in BEIJING

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on August 23, 2008

    So last night was the super exciting HARDCORE and METALCORE show in Beijing that my brother Paul organized!!! I forgot that it was yesterday!!! Then I got an SMS from Li Yo of the Beijing hardcore band Unregenreate Blood telling me that he was on his way to MAO to play the show! I totally forgot…

    Hopefully all of you China’s hardcore kids showed everyone the power of hardcore at the show!!! :-) Paul sent me an MSN message after the show to tell me that almost everyone was wearing King Ly Chee shirts or hats in the pit!!! That’s fucking AWESOME!!! I think we might be coming up to play in December – but have to wait for our band members to think about it. Hopefully it’ll happen!

    昨天晚上在北京有一个很兴奋的演出: 是hardcore和metalcore的演出…我的兄弟Huang Jia Si安排的…我完全忘了昨天是这个演出!!! :-( 我昨天收到我的兄弟李游(不复之血的主唱) – 他跟我说他刚才下班然后打车过去MAO准备这个演出.

    我希望你们北京和内地hardcore的哥们儿玩的非常开心…在moshpit里面你们有给别人看我们hardcore人的力量和热情!!! :-) Huang Jia Si在MSN跟我说在moshpit里面差不多每一个人是穿我们荔枝王的衣服或者帽子!!! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO COOL!!!! 谢谢大家的支持! :-)

    我们可能十二月再上来演出…还没有决定…还等我们其他成员看看…希望可以再看到我们内地兄弟的支持者!!!

  • NEW METALLICA SONG – SUCKS

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on August 22, 2008

    Wow…2 weeks and 2 typhoon number 8′s in Hong Kong! Pretty crazy…right now it’s about 11am here in Hong Kong and they said the typhoon will be here later this afternoon. They think it might be a direct hit! That’s crazy…

    But I’m not going to waste my time talking about that…

    I’m here to talk about the horrible song that Metallica just posted on their website and myspace. This song is called “The Day That Never Came” or something like that. Go listen to it – I think you’ll agree with me that it just sounds like they’re jamming different riffs! It doesn’t feel like a song – it just sounds like they put like 20 guitar riffs into a song and it just goes on and on and on and on and on…it’s a terrible song…and this is their song from their new album that they’ve posted on their myspace. The other song is called “Cyanide” which is a new song that they played LIVE recently.

    Once again, I stand by what I said last time – Lars is one of the worst drummers for sure. He sucks even more on this song…

    Why do I sound so angry? Because these guys were one of my favorite bands when I was growing up – why have they totally lost their magic?!?!??!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! It’s so sad to me that they can’t write good songs anymore…

    想不到两个礼拜的时间里我们在香港已经有两个很大的大风! 现在是星期五的十一点钟天文报道说今天下午这个大风会直接到香港! 可能是一个很夸张的情况…等一下可以说…

    可是我不想浪费时间说这个题目…我是想说Metallica新上载的歌. 如果你上去他们的myspace你可以听到最新歌叫The Day That Never Came…我觉得这首歌是特难听. 我觉得这首歌就是特多吉他riff放在一起…没有一首歌的感觉…好像是一个大jam! 怎么可以这样啊…

    可是我还在觉得他们的鼓手sucks!!! 你听这首歌的时候你可以再留意他的鼓…terrible…

    如果你想感觉到失望…那你们可以去他们的myspace听他们这首特难听的歌 Prepare to be disappointed here: click here

    为什么我有那么的大的反应? 因为我小的时候真的很爱这个乐队…他们为什么现在不会写一首好听的歌呢? 很奇怪… AUG 20, 2008: METALLICA IN THE STUDIO VIDEOS

    Hey…I don’t know if you’re excited about the new Metallica album – I’m not at all. They’ve sucked from their “black” album on…I don’t even like the “black” album. But everything after the “black” album is the worst shit I’ve ever heard in terms of so-called “metal”. Anyway…you can go to youtube and start watching videos of the Metallica in the studio practicing, writing and recording their new songs. None of it sounds good to me…but maybe it’ll be better when the CD comes out. 我不知道你们对metallica的新唱片有没有兴趣…(可是我觉得他们从”Black”唱片开始真的特差…)…可是你们可以现在去 youtube.com看他们在录音室里排练, 做歌, 和录音…我看了几个短片觉得他们这张唱片又是一个很大的失望…

    Also, after watching all these videos, I’ve realized how horrible of a musician Lars Ulrich is. I never thought he was a good drummer…but I always thought that at least he had good ideas. But if you watch these videos, you can see that all his ideas are so stupid! hahahahahaha…Every time he wants to try something, it just sounds like SHIT!!! hahahahahahaha…还有…看完Metallica几个短片我发现了他们的鼓手Lars(我十几年前第一次听到他的鼓到现在听他打鼓, 我还是觉得他是一个特没有意思的鼓手)全部注意是非常难听! hahahahaha…你自己看他们这个录音室的短片然后你自己可以听到他一给一个注意, 每次是难听! hahahahaha…你自己看吧!

  • WHAT UP

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on August 19, 2008

    Met the new kids yesterday!!! Woohoo!!! Nothing more exciting then meeting the children that I’m going to get to know super well all year!!! I love these first few days where you don’t know anything about each other…you don’t know what the kids like or dislike, you don’t know what their interests are, what their backgrounds are…but by the end of the year – you can ask me these questions again and I’ll be able to give you SUPER in-depth answers to these questions about EACH of these children! :-) It’s such a wonderful situation…a classroom is just awesome – especially a classroom full of young children who just love to come to school and make you love your job coming to school everyday with these excited little people around! :-)

    Can’t wait for Wednesday! That is their official first day of school! :-)

  • SAI KUNG

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on August 18, 2008

    Went to Sai Kung yesterday…that is one beautiful part of HK for sure…it was packed yesterday of course because the weather was so nice…it felt like the entire city was also visiting Sai Kung! hahahaha…I got there too late and so Alison wasn’t in any mood to get on those little Sampans to travel different islands. I think I’ll go do this visit later on in the week by myself and do it during the week instead of the weekend. We walked around Sai Kung just checking out the shops, the small cafes, dessert places, etc. We ended up leaving around 7 but so was all of Sai Kung. So we ended up having to wait for FOREVER to finally get on the bus…and then stuck in traffic forever. I finally got back home at almost 9pm! Anyone that lives in HK knows that that is totally CRAZY to take almost 2 hours to get home! That’s just because everyone was in Sai Kung…

    昨天我跟我女朋友Alison去了西贡 (当然是香港的西贡! hahahaha…)…当然昨天好像全市也跟我们去西贡因为天气特好…我们有点儿太迟到西贡所以我们没有时间做三班去其他岛看看! 可惜了…我一定自己会那点儿时间自己再来西贡然后租这个三班再出去看…

    等一下…我刚才在电视看着奥运会突然有播香港的歌手!!! 特难听!!! OH MY GOD!!!…

    Anyway…Dude – China is fucking kicking ASS at the Olympics! :-) Pretty damn amazing!!! 中国队太厉害了!!! 已经拿了超过三十个金牌!!! 太厉害了…我觉得美国对一定追不到那么多金牌! hahahaha…amazing…

    我十月头有差不多十天的假期…我现在打算坐火车上去北京…可能是我自己一个人上去…我现在在中国开始认识了很多不同地方的朋友们. 很多我认识因为hardcore! :-) hardcore这个世界真的可以建立很多好朋友…所以我可能坐火车的时候可以找这般朋友们招呼我! hahahaha…可是我觉得我一定要拿这样的机会在学习普通话…如果我自己去一定需要逼我自己说多点儿普通话…还没决定…就是想…October I’ve got about a week off from school and I’m currently planning just getting on a train by myself and traveling up to Beijing. I know a lot of people in different parts of China and maybe they’ll help me out! The funny thing is that all these dudes I’ve gotten to know through hardcore! :-) I love that this little society is ready to help each other at a drop of a hat! haven’t decided yet though…that is the plan…

    我们的兄弟Paul现在开始了一个荔枝王的活动!!! 我自己非常期待这个活动!!! :-) 还需要跟其他成员谈谈…如果更快confirm,我一定会通知大家!!! :-) 跟我一起来享受这个活动!!! :-)

  • NEW BOOK: A Long Way Home…新书: 長路漫漫:非洲少年兵回憶錄

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on August 17, 2008

    In my days lately living in HK, I’ve become overwhelmed with boredom. The only good thing about all this boredom here is that I have been able to read A LOT – because during all my boredom that is the ONLY thing that gets me excited. Two days ago I bought the book mentioned above…it’s about a child who becomes a soldier fighting in Sierre Leone through all it’s tragic and most disgustting circumstances. While you’re reading you can’t imagine that this actually could’ve happened! Nor do you think this could actually be witnessed by a child. It’s a very very striking book…another one that I’ve picked up lately that I can’t put down…

    Read more about the book and the author here:click here

    我最近在香港觉得这个城市是太无聊…无聊的时候只有一个好的事情…我突然有很多时间可以看书…我那么无聊的时候只有这个动作会让我很兴奋…anyway…我前天买了一本书叫 “長路漫漫:非洲少年兵回憶錄”. 这本书是说一个小朋友在Sierre Leone这个国家怎么过生活…是在他们一个很黑的时候…当时有很多小朋友给人逼入他们军队…这个军队会去每一个村打人, 杀人, 强奸, 偷东西…当然要记住他们就是小朋友…这个军队会逼这个小朋友吃毒品…可能是这个毒品会影响他们的心…小朋友怎么可以那么冷血?!?!?!

    看这本书的时候想不到这样的人存在…你看得时候觉得这全部情况应该是假的…可是不是, 是真的…写这本书的人是其中一位小朋友逼人进入他们的军队…这个人现在住在美国…

    可以去这个网站看到点关于这本书: click here

    I think lately I’ve just been rethinking why I care about hardcore so much…and these types of books that I’ve been reading lately has really invigorated my feelings towards hardcore. It’s not so much about the music, or the breakdowns, or the singalongs, it’s that through this type of music I feel like I’m trying my best to give back to society. I don’t think I’ll ever succeed in the ways that these authors of these books have and are giving back to the world…but at least I know that through music that I’m trying my best. Hardcore to me will always be about giving – giving back to the world we live in…not just constantly taking and taking from it. Think about that the next time you go off to work – is what you do at all helping someone in this world? Or is it just another way for people who already have all the world’s wealth, gain more wealth?

    这几个月我有再想我为什么对hardcore那么热情…看这样的书我会记得…还有看这样的书会再鼓励我为hardcore奋斗…hardcore不是就是关于音乐, breakdowns, singalongs…对我来说hardcore是一个方法在社会服务…用音乐和歌词我觉得我尽量帮社会服务…当然我一定没有这几本书的作者那么强的影响…还有我知道为社会服务不会只用音乐!!! 一定需要自己出去动…

    Hardcore对我来说永远是关心他人…尽量给社会你所有空间的时候…当然不是那么简单…我们那么有压力的人生谁有空间? 可是只需要试…下次你上班的时候你可以问你自己, 你这个工作室帮助谁? 通常你的工作是帮助已经有钱人再有点钱. 这样说 – 你的工作有什么意思?

    关于metal…regarding metal:

    这几个月对上载了新音乐 The following bands have uploaded new music:
    Bleeding Through: click here
    Unearth: click here

  • YESTERDAY WAS PAKISTAN’S INDEPENDENCE DAY

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on August 15, 2008

    Dude…I totally forgot yesterday was Pakistan’s Independence Day! I thought it was today! To make things worse, all day yesterday I was wearing a Beijing t-shirt! DOH!!! Quite embarassing…

    Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS PAKISTAN!!! My country has been around for 61 years fighting and struggling…I don’t think we’ve had a single decade of peace…it has always been wars, fighting, infighting…

    This is a country that once there actually is a stable period, and education and work is available to EVERYONE, I’m SURE extremism of any sort will be wiped out forever. We’ve always had problems with our “leaders” as well…even now…

    Richie of STW’s favorite metalcore band August Burns Red has posted a new video up. This type of band – the only thing I ever want to watch is the drummer. The vocalist is like non-existent because the music is already so full of interesting things that I don’t CARE that he’s singing or what he’s singing about. In this video – it’s just them playing live (which is so boring) and there are some close shots of the drummer – but I wish it was JUST of the drummer! hahahahahaha…this dude is so awesome…

    昨天是我国家巴基斯坦的獨立紀念日!!! 我自己忘了!!! 我以为是今天…真可惜了!!! 还有你知道我昨天穿什么衣服呢? 我全日穿了”北京”的t-shirt!!! 糟糕!!! 在我国家的独立纪念日我有穿中国的t-shirt!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! 哈哈哈哈哈…真的很好笑!

    反正我想恭喜我的国家…独立了六十一年…可是应该没有一个时代我们享受过和平…我们不停有战争, 有跟自己人打, 所以很有贫穷…我觉得如果一天我们可以给每一个巴基斯坦市民教育和帮他们找工作, 那我们一天应该没有什么恐怖分子的东西…我们为什么现在有这样的东西? 因为很多很穹巴基斯坦人什么都没有…他们没有学校, 没有工作, 所以他们会参加这样很激动的恐怖分子的学校和工作…当然不是全部国家!!! 请你不误会我的意思…

    Anyway…我好朋友STW的Richie很喜欢一个metalcore乐队叫August Burns REd. 他们刚才上载了他们新video…这样的乐队他们最有趣的成员是他们的鼓手! hahahahaha…我不理他们主唱…我也不里他唱什么! hahahahaha…最重要是他们的鼓手…这个video我只想看他们的鼓手! 如果全video就是拍他就是比较好看! hahahaha…他打得非常厉害! click here
