The Skinny: Of all the places in the world, Brasov, Romania is where you’ll find hardcore band I Stared Into the Forest rehearsing, writing and playing shows. Sonically the group takes elements of screamo, math and bits of death metal to create their own brand of brazen hardcore. As with their label, Fading Halo Records, I Stared Into the Forest is built on pure DIY ethics, a powerful anti-discrimination stance and a love of freedom.

These roaring Romanians dropped their debut album, Society Discontinued in 2011 and followed that up with a short tour through Central and Eastern Europe accompanied by two bands, Coins as Portraits and El Cabraret. The group is one of those that offers their music for free download, so if you dig this tune, then hop over HERE and grab the full album.
