by Brian Peterson

While some define hardcore music as a sound, many believe it's more than that—underlying political values, motives, ethics, principles, and attitudes that form a community. Burning Fight provides answers, but moreso raises new questions for those drawn to the scene's political, social, ethical and spiritual ideas among the abrasive chords. Featuring commentary from approximately 150 people involved in the nineties hardcore scene as well as oral history articles about straight edge, politics, vegetarianism and interviews with a variety of influential bands there are interviews with 108, Avail, Burn, Cave In, Coalesce, Damnation A.D., Deadguy, Disembodied, Downcast, Earth Crisis, Endpoint, Groundwork, Guilt, Inside Out, Integrity, Los Crudos, Mouthpiece, Racetraitor, Ressurection, Rorshcach, Shelter, Spitboy, Split Lip/Chamberlain, Strife, Swing Kids, Texas Is The Reason, Threadbare, Trial, Unbroken, Undertow, and Vegan Reich
