Planet On A Chain, affectionately known as P.O.A.C., is a relentless hardcore band that spans the vast landscapes of California and Texas. Their music is a testament to their unwavering dedication to the DIY ethos, and their journey is one of passion, resilience, and a shared love for tearing through the boundaries of traditional hardcore.

P.O.A.C.'s story begins in two practice spaces separated by a whopping 1700 miles. This geographical challenge didn't deter them; instead, it fueled their determination to make their mark on the hardcore scene. They captured their raw intensity in two powerful demos, recorded in their respective spaces. These recordings became the foundation for their early recognition in the hardcore world, released as 7-inch records by revered labels Blind Rage and 625.

The hardcore world took notice, and P.O.A.C. responded with an explosive statement - the "Boxed In" LP, released on the legendary Revelation Records. This album showcased their unrelenting energy, searing guitar riffs, and brutally honest lyrics. It became an instant classic among fans of hardcore music, cementing P.O.A.C.'s reputation as a force to be reckoned with.

P.O.A.C. doesn't just stop at recordings; their live performances are a visceral experience that leaves audiences in awe. From intimate shows on the West Coast to a memorable East Coast tour alongside Drop Dead, their live presence is a testament to their unwavering dedication to their craft. The energy they bring to the stage is nothing short of a hardcore hurricane, leaving fans hungry for more.

Hardcore has a long history of existing in hostile and outright repressive places. From military dictatorships to the autocratic Orbán regime in Hungary, where for the last decade NORMS have been churning out furious and challenging hardcore. Mixing the uncomfortable noodling jazz-punk of Saccharine Trust and late Black Flag with squealing guitar and cowbell ala Negazione, all at with speed and stop start aggression of No Comment. Odd rhythms give way to bursts of rage in this tightly wound and thrilling release. Fans of Cold Sweat and Nasa Space Universe should especially take note. You’re in for a wild fourteen and a half minutes.
