Saturday, 28 August 2010


RADIOLOKATOR - wow...this band has been inspirated by all thrash metal '80s bands from Czechoslovakia such as Kryptor, Debustrol, Torr, Arakain, etc. they have awesome line-up with singer and drummer from legendary czech fast-core/power-violence/grind band called Gride {long interview with Gride at new issue of Short fast & loud magazine no.21, upcoming split EP w/Voetsek} and guitarist and drummer from Lahar. BLACK MARKET FETUS - it's fast thrash-metal/crossover from States with Capitalist Casualties's and Catheter's members. they will have a new split w/Brodys Militia very soon on Give praise records. in past - split LP w/Wasteoid on Six Weeks records. it will be awesome combination.
limited edition of 100 copies on colored haze vinyl + minizin Slap it Down {in english}


COMMON ENEMY "Living the dream" new 12"LP {dead 016}

COMMON ENEMY - blasting straight out of the mid-80's, even though they've 'only' been around since '97. Reading, Pennsylvania's Common Enemy unleash 20 songs of skate punk that brings back fond memories of scene legends Cryptic Slaughter and DRI in their heyday.
Never slowing below breakneck speed (not one track clocks in at over 2 minutes) and never without tongue firmly in cheek, songs like 'Beer Bong', 'Pac-Man Fever', 'Thrash House Party' and 'Syphon And Destroy' will have you flailing around in pissed-up ecstasy and digging out your white Hi-Tec bumpers and cut-off t-shirts. Jason Navarro of The Suicide Machines/Hellmouth even gets in on the party to sing on the album's title track.
If Britain had any semblance of a decent summer this would make the ideal soundtrack to a good barbeque piss-up. This type of musical crossover is hardly going to be deemed original but equally its never going to be boring, and 'Living The Dream?' is definitely worth checking out if you yearn for the glory days when 'Convicted' and 'Dealing With It' were on everyone's turntables.


SUFFERING MIND / WOJTYLA split 7"EP {dead 015}

SUFFERING MIND - old school grindcore/crust leading a female awesome voice with Antichrist & People Hate members based in Lublin, Poland for Phobia/Insect Warfare/Disrupt/Dystopia fans, another two great splits are coming soon such as split 7"EP w/czech ultra fast violence grinders Lycanthrophy and split 12"LP w/grindcore metal punks from Colorado Asshammer {ex Catheter/Capitalist Casualties members} vs. WOJTYLA - grinding crust-punk violence coming from Brealau, Poland in vein of legendary bands like a Extreme Noise Terror/Code 13/Assuck. Their previous split w/Unholy Grave is really a proof of quality this band. 


LYCANTHROPHY - new tracks of ultra fast-core grind violence ala Despise You/Crossed Out w/excellent screaming frontgirl vox and ultra fast percussionist. this czech band is growning so fucking up and i wanna see them after another 5 years - they will be mighty dictators of grind violence movement at least in Europe vs. BLACK HOLE OF CALCUTTA - fast grind-core darkness w/Makai members from California. they are actually back from their first European tour and they have bring a two another new records - split EP w/german fast-grind legend called WOJCZECH and split 10" w/USA grindcore godness with Despise You/Excruciating Terror called Bloody Phoenix. Maybe you will know them from their previous split EP w/GATT from Indonesia. artwork made by Matt Loomis.

THE SHINING - The Amsterdam isn't just a city of legal Cofffee shops and cheap cheeky girls, but this is a hometown of cult thrash metalic gangsters called The Shining. this is a band of my dreams - totally crazy godfuckers. their sound's inspirated by C.O.C./Accused/Attitude Adjustment. their five new tracks are great tasting before their first one-side LP and USA tour.

SHEEVAYOGA are our favourite czech fast-core band and the argument of that has been originality and make a experiments with many kinds of musics.

LOADED FOR BEAR / BIZARRE X split orange 12"LP {dead 007}

I really remember the last BIZARRE X shows across Czech Republic on tour with Kent Brockman and Space to Being. Excellent band and wonderfull freaks from Germany. Fourteen new tracks of uncompromising drum'n'bass/grind madness with a typical Spazzation sound. If you dont believe me lets try to buy a copy of this LP and insert the vinyl under the gramophones stylus. That will be a surprise yeah. They are a legendary power-violence band anyway. I can recommended their educated lyrics. 80..s hardcore - 80..s thrash metal - 80..s crossover - 80..s death metal - 80..s grindcore - early 90..s grindcore - 90..s powerviolence - 90..s fastcore. The partner of germanese veterans on this orange twelveinch is american grind-core band, i think that unknown band for many European fastcore/grindcore motherfuckers. The band is called LOADED FOR BEAR from Chicago. Their sound is a monster crash of death metal, hardcore and grindcore – fast heavy spastic loud caustic, whats more? Something like a Brutal Truth, Lack of Interest, DropDead, Rotten Sound and many more awesome grind-core/fastcore bands. The lyrics are attacking homophobia, sexism, racism, classism and the myths. Fucking killers stuff with interesting intro tracks. Some copies of this LP will be included new issue of Slap It Down newsletter – free scene info sheet of paper. 

COMMON ENEMY / LxExAxRxNx! split 7"EP {dead 006}

COMMON ENEMY they are typical US "broken bones" skate thrash with snotty vocals from Pennsylvania with sound like Holier Than Thou or Crispus Attucks. Their side of this EP wax contains three ultra new songs plus another three songs that were recorded live at The Silo on June 2007 /it's great sound – i really love it/ What's more? D.I.Y. or die and Let's have some fun, comprendes? LxExAxRxNx! are South Area Italian fast spaggetti tornado, mixture of Life's Half / Negative Approach style of hardcore with modern thrashin crossover with excellent guitar riffs. Six new mighty tracks with cool political lyrics plus awesome 7Seconds cover, this their records has been many times better than everything before - seriously. I hope that they will be recorded stuff for full LP fucking soon. This seveninch is coming with nice drawn cover by Ivana Smudja. 

LYCANTHROPHY / SAY WHY? split heavy white 12"LP {dead 005}

the LYCANTHROPHY freaks have been killing me by their last records from excellent split EP w/GRIDE. And right now we are fuckin glad to introduce to you a new eight fuckin fast and furious tracks plus cover song by Siege "Conform" as well. The most typical item of this band has been female barking vox like from the horror movies from 70ties and huge hammers. The hailing in vein of classic power-violence/grind bands Crossed Out, Despise You, DropDead or Yacopsae. They are probably the best growing current czech fast band with amaizing sound from great Shaark studio. SAY WHY? after their debut split w/D.H.I.B.A.C. the Dead Heroes Bros is decided to put out another stuff of this young spastic loud group. They are going to be awesome band with great potential.

The vinyl is coming on ultra heavy (180g) white opaque asphalt and interesting art collage cover with Statue of liberty. Capitalist Casualties / Fubar or old records by Gride fans must be enthusiactic from production of Say Why?
