HARDFACED is a metal-hardcore band formed at the beginning of 2004 in Ohrid, Macedonia. Starting from 2007 until 2014 they released 3 full-length albums: More than Hate (2007), Show Them What They Fear (2011), and Dying Lake (2014). At the same time, they were part of ”Dangerous Melodies From Macedonia Vol.1” compilation released by Sixtynine Records in 2013, ”Break Down the Walls” compilation released by 141 Records in 2014, and finally ”Колку гласно морам да викнам за да ме чујат?” compilation released as 12″ vinyl for Corpus Delicti Records in 2019.
Band members: Dimitar Saveski – vocals, Goran Veljanoski – guitars, Jovan Naumoski – guitars, Jordan Malenko – drums, Ljupco Jimmy Stefanoski – bass.
In 2019 HARDFACED returned with their fourth full-length album Dreamless Slumber At The Shores Of Youth released as a 12″ vinyl, CD, and digital release for Diehard Records. The album was mixed and mastered by Lasse Lammert (LSD Studio, Germany), produced by the band itself, and with the amazing cover artwork done by the almighty Pig Hands. Twitching guitar melodies, crushing rhythm section, and emotionally brutal vocals – dark and heavy, lyrically digging in the most social and sensitive human subjects is what makes “Dreamless Slumber At The Shores Of Youth” the band’s most anticipated album.
In 2021 Matracookie Records and Diehard Records announced the first-ever collaboration on the cassette tape release of HARDFACED‘s latest album. The cassette tape is released as a limited edition Normal Bias Type I 40-min cassette in an edition of 50.
