We’ve posted about several different dedicated music torrent trackers in the past but I don’t think a site dedicated to punk/ska/hardcore music has been mentioned before. Punk Torrents is a forum based private torrent tracker that has a lot torrents (audio and some music videos) related to punk, ska and hardcore music genres. If you are a fan of these genres, good news is that this site is currently open for public registrations.
Although you may have not heard of this tracker before, Punk Torrents is not a small community. As of 3/1/2009, this site has over 45000 members and tracks over 10100 torrents (note that the inactive account deletion period is really long on this tracker). As for the content on PT, it’s mostly audio (music). There is however a video section where videos of live performances, etc are also being uploaded to. Majority of the torrents on PunkTorrents seem to be good quality user uploads.
In addition to the torrent tracker, PunkTorrents has a great forum complete with active members, requests, offers and several other features. Users could even make requests through one of the forum threads.
As mentioned earlier, signups for this tracker are currently open. If you are a fan of punk/ska music genre, go ahead and create an account when you can. PunkTorrents is known to close public signups suddenly.
