The Crossover of Hardcore & Metal

NYHC-cover-freddy-e1406660241721Metal Injection just posted this excerpt from the upcoming book NYHC: New York Hardcore 1980–1990, by Tony Rettman  The excerpt is an interesting read. They posted the chapter about the crossover of hardcore and metal, and it consists entirely of interview snippets from band members and people in the scene at the time. There was a lot of animosity between the two groups, but there was also a blending that, over time, produced a lot of cool bands, albums and songs. Go read it.
