Yo! My name is Attila. Some of you may know, some of you may not, but I am also doing Chiller Than Most, a hardcore fanzine that I started exactly 5 years ago this spring.
Are any of you still into reading hardcore fanzines? I hope so. I truly believe that fanzines are as important as bands, the difference is that far less people care about zines than about music. I want to change that with the help of this website. (If you don’t like to read or you are too lazy to read, you’re at the wrong place. Sorry.) Fanzines are still important for die hard hardcore fans, important for promoting music communities and gatekeeping music tastes. They are still a genuine part of the scene to people who are genuinely interested in it. Whatever happens in the future, they will always exist. As long as someone has something to say, the zines will live on. (And the kids will have their say…)
I try to keep Do You Know Hardcore? updated regularly, so please check back often. From time to time, I will upload zine excerpts, pics, interviews. If you love fanzines, as much as I do, then you will dig this site!
I want to thank everyone involved with the fanzine culture, and I also want to thank the bands, old and new. Without these hardcore bands and zines there would have been no Chiller Than Most fanzine or Do You Know Hardcore? blog. Thanks.
