End of the Year List 2015

2015 was a crazy year for hardcore, and as always, there are way too many good releases to select a personal top 9. I love looking back and realizing how many good bands are out there that write killer records; proof that hardcore is alive and well. All the contributors of Legends Arising selected their 9 favorite records of 2015 in random order. Enjoy!
