Scottish queer punks have delivered their big boy record.  Still not sure what format this wil be available on but tape is on the list for sure. Violence doesn’t help but power violence does, at least for them, to get their message across.  Prepare yourself for a 10 minute noise… Keep Reading

EXTINCTION OF MANKIND - Storm of Resentment

(review) EXTINCTION OF MANKIND – Storm of Resentment LP

EXTINCTION OF MANKIND have been around since 1992, so they are veterans of the UK punk.  They started when others finished and when time passed (20 something years) and I get the chance to hear their fourth upcoming full length album, I realise they are one of the very few… Keep Reading

Thrash metal on SANCTUS PROPAGANDA!  Yes!  And there are very good reasons for that.  PHRENETIX are a fairly young band operating within the frames of the DIY and underground thrash and punk scene and their approach to music and lifestyle suggests PHRENETIX is just more than music and headbanging.
