Alpinist is incredible. Hailing from Munster, Germany, this four-piece created some unholy and barbaric hardcore that's dark and crusty as hell and even adds slight undertones of screamo in the mix. Everything about these guys is absolutely astounding. Massive riffs and girthy bass lines flood everywhere and mesh amazingly to their highly complex drum parts that never seem to let up. Their dual vocals are especially harsh with the exchange of howling roars and throat-tearing screams. I'm not really sure if Alpinist is on hiatus or not, but you can check out 3/4 of the members in the equally brutal Jungbluth. Snag everything I could hunt down below and dig.
