MORUS

MORUS – Cialo Obce LP

  MORUS is a fairly well recognised Polish punk band that throughout its 6 years of ins and outs of existence managed to play well established punk festivals and release two demos.  Time has come to record a full length LP and, hopefully, become a regular and active band around… Keep Reading

(review) SUFFER THE PAIN – Midnight Sacrifice LP

  When I first played this record a year ago or so I was put off by everything I heard on it.  But then I rediscovered it and since then I cannot stop playing it.  This band from Västerås, Sweden have already managed to release another LP on their own… Keep Reading

Afterlife

(review) AFTERLIFE – s/t LP

  AFTERLIFE are from Czech Republic and this is their debut release on Phobia Records and Pure Heart Records.  4 songs 1 of each is instrumental.  It took me some time to get down to writing this review as I was first looking for my jaw all over Sanctus Propaganda… Keep Reading

KORSFÄST - “Skarpt Läge”

(review) KORSFÄST – “Skarpt Läge” 12”EP

  Fucking hell, this is brilliant.  When your punk CV includes playing in bands like MOB 47, PROTES BENGT, DESPERAT, DISCARD and DRILLER KILLER, then your new formation must be a killer.  And it is.  Take a bite off each mentioned bands and you end up with the best things… Keep Reading

ANATOMI 71 - Människor Som Medel

(review) ANATOMI 71 – Människor Som Medel 12”EP

  ANATOMI 71 are from Gothenburg, Sweden and play what we all call Swedish style old school d-beat punk but once you play it you can’t resist hearing heavy Motorhead influences here and there.  Which is good.  Bass driven punk rock + d-beat drums is always a good recipe for… Keep Reading

(review) DÖDLAGE – Ritual Slaughter LP + s/t EP cassette

  Portland’s d-beat crust punks DÖDLAGE here on cassette tape from Drop Out Records.  A release for those who missed the vinyl releases.   It starts with the slow, gloomy and sludgy intro called “Sanctuary Rites” but you’d be wrong thinking this is the mood of the whole release.  “Internal… Keep Reading

POCHWALONE

(review) POCHWALONE – Koncert LP

POCHWALONE are your top choice when you are looking for musical and lyrical trips far beyond the usual everyday noise you are surrounded with, deep into the heart of independent women’s acting and thinking. They are a trio: bass, drums and vocals.  And you do not miss guitars or anything… Keep Reading

SubAlert

(review) Sub Alert – Obekväma Människor EP

If you see 8 tracks on a 7”EP and the address is Sweden you know what to expect.  It’s a hardcore blast, with maniac vocals, heavy guitar and swedish style solos.  Anti-Cimex here, MOB47 there, a splash of PROTEST BENGT.  Mixed by Kenko from DISCHANGE/MEANWHILE.  Good references and very good… Keep Reading

Famine

(review) FAMINE/SATANIC MALFUNCTIONS – split EP

I will start with SATANIC MALFUNCTIONS who made quite an impact on me when I was a teenager.  Formed in the late 80’s I managed to hear them when they’d been long gone.  They seemed to me more American style of noisy hardcore, than the British one.  For whatever reason… Keep Reading

FIEND

(review) FIEND/SUFFERING MIND – split 7”

  Polish grind core masters SUFFERING MIND team up with another great grind band from US, FIEND.  This is the last official release from SUFFERING MIND so if you are a fan of precision drumming and metallic guitars to give this kind of grind a great finish – get this… Keep Reading

DEAD ARCHITECT - Filth Hymns

(review) DEAD ARCHITECT – Filth Hymns CD

  DEAD ARCHITECT give you inverted crosses, skulls and d-beats to make you realise what deep shithole called planet Earth you live on.  It is new era black metal with punk and crust attitude, concenrating on topics like religion, patriotism and exploitation of human dignity. Six, pretty short recordings, all… Keep Reading

MASSGRAV

(review) MASSGRAV – Stockholm Rockers CD

  MASSGRAV released their records on Sound Pollution but their forth album is out on Selfmadegod Records on CD, and vinyl release is coming soon. Now, if you want to play 24 songs in 26 minutes you need to do it fast and very well.  And this is how they… Keep Reading

AGATHOCLES

(review) AGATHOCLES – Commence to Mince CD/LP

  How do you write a review of AGATHOCLES release knowing that they have released over 200 EPs and about 200 albums?  Do you dare to compare releases, refer to the EP #147 in their discography or the period between albums #79 – #94?  I don’t know!  And I don’t… Keep Reading

DISCORDANCE

(review) DISCORDANCE – s/t LP

  Welcome to the worst nightmare of all – reality!  This is how this record greets you and you may have heard it before from Hellraiser film, but you know now what to expect at least. DISCORDANCE are a relatively new band, formed in 2015, from Patras, Greece.  And they… Keep Reading
