Alpinist are a four-piece hardcore/crust punk band from Munster, Germany that formed in 2007. These guys play an incredibly dark and intense style of hardcore that borders on screamo territory at times. I don’t know if they’re still active, since they haven’t put out any material in five years. However, their two LP’s are absolutely killer. If that really is the end of Alpinist, they’ve left with a flawless discography. Plus, their members are now active in two of the best hardcore bands active today, which are Jungbluth and Svffer. Both of those bands are already up on the blog, so if you haven’t heard them, definitely be sure to check them out as well.
