Biography: New York hardcore took a positive turn in December, 1994, when Shutdown emerged on the scene as one of few bands ready to take their music and message to the next level. With an emphasis on old-school values and new school musical sensibility, Shutdown were poised to take over where bands like Minor Threat, Cro-Mags, Gorilla Biscuits, Agnostic Front, Sick Of It All, Madball, Youth Of Today, Judge, Breakdown, 7 seconds, Chain of Strength, etc.     With older members of the NYHC crowd supporting these straight edge "kids", success has been a natural transition. They have played some of the biggest shows in past hardcore history, including one of the two tributes to Raybeez (Warzone) at CBGB's in the fall of 1997. Raybeez himself actually went as far as to state that Shutdown is "the future of hardcore". And with a legend like Jimmy Gestapo (Murphy's Law) manning the production duties on "Against All Odds", and the full support of their home town, Shutdown are ready to be recognized worldwide as the leaders of hardcore's new breed
