1991 was a huge year for metal of all stripes, but it would also prove to be an important time for hardcore as well, particularly in its relationship to metal. I mean of course the release of Integrity‘s classic debut, Those Who Fear Tomorrow.
Along with bands like Earth Crisis, Marauder and Vision of Disorder, Integrity played a huge role in taking hardcore into heavier territory at a crucial moment in its history. By 1991, hardcore had traveled from its beginnings in the first wave (1979-1986) through the tougher, more inward-looking aesthetic of youth crew, and was given an extra dose of distortion with the thrash-metal crossover.
