Shotmaker - Discography



First off, excuse the uber shitty artwork....Second, excuse the uber subjectivity.

Shotmaker were one of the best hardcore bands. Hailing from Canada, their brand of hardcore was heavy without resorting to palm muted guitar riffs or stompy breakdown. Theres is a juggernaut of pummling bass and drum attack with some of the most blood curdling screams. They released two proper full lengths, Crayon Club and Mouse Ear Forget Me Not, as well as a decidedly awesome split with the late great Maximillian Colby (In my opinion, 6 of their best songs). They are also early progenitors of the current emo explosion, with their loud soft approach, complex guitar passages and screamy vocals. Though this is really just hardcore at its embroiled, impassioned best.

Thanks for sharing that. Been trying to find the actual cd, but the record store I ordered it from failed to unearth it either. I wonder if it's still available in stores.
Thanks anyway, although 6 songs from the disc2 are missing. :)

YOU'RE MY FUCKING HERO. Guess not, but now you do ;-) I've been looking for this CD for eons. Thank you so much for sharing the Shotmaker love. Was it difficult for you to find the CD?

oops, sorry, my message originally began as, "Did you ever know that YOU'RE MY FUCKING HERO", but I changed my mind at the last moment and that's why it came out making no sense. Sorry about that.
