      Alexisonfire qualifies as post-hardcore, so the comparison to Black Flag (one of the seminal hardcore bands) is apt. However, Henry Rollins didn’t quite do that death-metal snarl, though. And Greg Ginn’s guitar stylings are wonderfully/ridiculously unique.Report

    In all fairness to Alexisonfire, they did provide a nurturing petri dish for the considerable talents of their guitarist Dallas Green, aka City and Colour.

    Then again, he was born in St. Catherine’s, not Hamilton.Report

    To be fair to Hamilton, three great bands came from here: Forgotten Rebels, Teenage Head, and Simply Saucer.Report
