I’m sure more videos from Judge’s This Is Hardcore set will be surfacing and I’m also sure we’ll be posting them here on DCXX as they pop up, but so far this is one of the best I’ve come across. As you can see and hear from watching this, Judge delivered and were firing on all cylinders.
I said it when I saw them at the BNB Bowl earlier this year and I’ll say it again, after seeing Judge twice during their original go around and them being one of my all time favorite hardcore bands over the past 25 years, seeing them again has almost been surreal. Judge is one of those bands that I never expected to see again and now that it’s happening, it’s all hitting like a ton of bricks.
In my mind, some of those songs are simply some of the best musically written hardcore songs and hardest hitting lyrics ever. I feel like I’ve kept that “New York Crew” 7″ in my pocket like an old, trusty pocket watch and it’s been reliable and consistently there, ready to fire me up and help me kick through walls when needed.
