’90s hardcore/emo band Merel reuniting, playing NYC show at Grand Victory

Merel

Add Merel to the growing list of hardcore bands that have risen from the grave…

Featuring a rhythm section who went on to help form New Jersey’s brilliant Rye Coalition, Merel played chaotic, abrasive, and quite loud experimental hardcore that separated itself from the norm with its unlikely musical creativity. Fierce vocals lead the way, and they are actually relatively understandable while still being quite aggressively screamed. The band toys with both straight-ahead hardcore and a much more explosive style comparable to a completely untamed Rye Coalition.-[Last.FM]

New Jersey’s Merel wil return for their first show in 20 years at Grand Victory on April 5. Life Eaters (ex-Rye Coalition) and Entartete (ex Orphan) will join on as support and DJ Zachary Lipez will be on the wheels. Tickets are on sale.

As mentioned, Rye Colation will support The Sonics at Bell House on April 13, a Norton Records benefit show (tickets).

Head below for a refresher course on Merel, done by way of video/streaming audio.
