Composed of Tony Triano (vocals), Chris Caputo (guitar), Tag Terranova (bass) and Don DeKay (drums), this group is usually a robust representative of the united states derivation of hardcore known colloquially as ‘emo-core’. Using its highlight on extremely personal, intense songwriting instead of position and machismo, the explanation accurately installed Hard Response. The group created in 1991, of which period their first demonstration tape begun to circulate and obtained them their initial shows with FED UP WITH EVERYTHING. These performances gave method to a clutch of support slot machine games with Madball, Pet Eat Dog as well as the Cro-Mags, and their debut EP, Mindrape. Two performances on east coastline compilations improved their reputation, prior to the discharge of One Bullet Theory, which impressively attached melody and structure towards the familiar hardcore assault, with especially solid vocals from Triano.
