Mindsnare are an Australian hardcore band from Melbourne, Victoria. Formed in 1993 under the name Mad Circle, their music is a blend of traditional "old school" hardcore punk and crossover metal,[1] and as such has seen them play alongside metal bands like Kreator and Ringworm,[2] as well as more straightforward hardcore acts like Agnostic Front, Sick of it All and Australia's Toe To Toe.[3] Mindsnare have been described as "one of the most influential bands of the past decade " by Missing Link Records.[4]
