Hardware was a hardcore fanzine from New Jersey that ran from 1993 to 1997. The zine published a total of nine issues before it was canned. In it's time though, Hardware,with its heavily saturated black and white layout, championed contemporary bands while bringing a renewed focus on the late 80s NYHC scene that had just ended. A tenth issue was started but never finished. In 2018, Shining Life Press collected every issue, including the unfinished Issue #10, in a book. This issue of Hardware, #9, features interviews with Krakdown, Infest, Bl'Ast!, Absolution, Mouthpiece, and more. This original copy of Hardware is in great condition with normal wear.
