THAT MEANS NO POSTS WITHIN THE NEXT DAYS AS I GOTTA FIX MY COMPUTER FIRST AND THEN I HAVE TO SOLVE MY MAIN PROBLEM GET BACK THE DATA I NEED FOR WORK AND OF WHICH I DON`T HAVE A SAFETY COPY! I`LL TRY TO ANSWER YOUR COMMENTS AS QUICK AS POSSIBLE BUT THERE MIGHT BE SOME DELAY! IF THAT HAPPENS DON`T GET MAD YOU KNOW THE REASON!

the CLOSE YOUR EYES AND SEE DEATH comp. 7" is one of the best compilations that have ever been released! it was released on RE-EDUCATION rec. like the also brilliant NO DESIRE TO CONTINUE LIVING comp. 10" which makes me think that whoever did that label really had a hand for compilations and that´s something I wouldn´t say about that many labels! LUZIFERS MOB from Germany are open up side a with 4 tracks that are considered their best stuff by quite some people. LUZIFERS MOB were ahead of their time playing what is now called POWER VIOLENCE with brilliant German lyrics before 99,99% even had heard the term POWER VIOLENCE. Belgian´s WOUNDED KNEE are next with 2 tracks of blistering THRASH. the flipside is reserved for CAPITALI$T CASUALTIES that rage through another 4 tracks of great, fast THRASH/POWER VIOLENCE! I´d dare say that a record that has a picture of Elvis Presley wearing a karate-gi on the backcover can´t be bad!
another live 8" released on REBOUND records in 1990! I think it were 3 8" all together # 1 would be CITIZENS ARREST # 2 the HEADFIRST 8" here and # 3 I can´t remember but I can remember that there was a CD with remastered versions of all 3 on it. back to this one: 3 tracks from one of the better late 80ies S.E. bands on this one-sided flexi that has a waaaaay better sound than the CITIZENS ARREST flexi.
the CITIZENS ARREST live 8" that was released by REBOUND rec. in 1990 ripped with 320 kBits. to be honest the sound quality is far from brilliant so I tried to make the sound a little bit better but that didn´t really do much!
the 2nd MALINHEADS 7" released on Berlin´s POGAR rec. in 1986 is not as good as their 1st 7" in my ears! it is somehow way more melodic than I did remember. I always had the 2 7"es filed as quite similar in the music on them in my memory. but to my surprise that´s wrong! their 1st one is way rougher and comes across way more aggressive! came in a big xeroxed sheet of paper with the lyrics on it and the 7" had a big middle hole!!
when Count Yorga said BURN in one of the comments here I remembered that I somehow ended up getting this CD as a present. this is the REBUILDING compilation as the name says but besides that it also has the BURN song which appeared on the FOREVER 7" compilation and the TURNING POINT / NO ESCAPE split 7" as bonus. as I´ve this on CD I decided to rip it quick.
this hell of a compilation was sent to me by Count Yorga! I´m quite sure it´s enough to do some namedropping so let me tell you that this is a compilation featuring: MAN IS THE BASTARD, PINK FLAMINGOS, STACK, CORROSIVE, HIATUS, HELLNATION, INTESTINAL DISEASE, AGATHOCLES, CAPITALIST CASUALTIES, M.V.D., ROHRSCACH, SYSTRAL, DEVOID OF FAITH and BOHREN UND DER CLUB OF GORE
IRONSIDE were the U.K.´s answer to MAYDAY! 4 tracks of slow, evil HOLY TERROR METAL from a band that could play tight and had a singer who managed to sound like it should sound meaning natural and not as forced and without power like the voices of so many wannabee Dwids out there! they had at least a 2nd 7" but that´s all I can tell you about them!

HELLNATION´s YOUR CHAOS DAYS ARE NUMBERED 12" is another fave of mine! released in 1998 it´s now out of print for quite a while! 37 tracks of blistering fast HARDCORE including a ROCK HARD, RIDE FREE cover! if you don´t know the band that wrote that song I suggest you take a look at the labels! I admit a look at the lyric sheet could help too! they´re Kentucky´s finest - no doubt about it!
a compilation that consists of 3 7"es featuring: 16, APARTMENT 213, CAVITY, DAMAD, DEVOID OF FAITH, ENEMY SOIL, FLOOR, FORK, LA GRITONA, SLUGHOG, SPAZZ, SUPPRESSION, THUG, etc. for my taste there´s way to much SLUDGE on this compilation and that there are no lyrics is another point to criticize! I mainly ripped it so I can delete the files of the SLUDGE bands and enjoy the sweet sound of the POWER VIOLENCE bands!
just like the STAGNATION´S END / PARANOIA KEEPS CRAWLING split 12" the EBOLA / JINN split 12" combines the last EBOLA recordings and the 1st JINN recordings. 24 tracks 12 from each band. each band with fast and furious CRUST / GRIND in good sound quality so it doesn´t lack brutality! a great start for JINN!

CHARLES BRONSON, WOUND, SECTION, ENEMY SOIL, PHONO PHOBIA, POTATO JUSTICE, SHORT HATE TEMPER, SOILED and Andrew´s, the guy behind KNOT, own band VILENTLY ILL have been the 1st SPEED FREAKS compilation. there were 2 different versions: one was a 7" featuring CHARLES BRONSON, ENEMY SOIL, VILENTLY ILL, PHONO PHOBIA, SOILED and SECTION and a print run of 500 and one that came with a one-sided bonus 7" featuring POTATO JUSTICE, SHORT HATE TEMPER and WOUND with a printrun of 250. here you get the one with the bonus 7"! I should add that I was to lazy to cut the 12 untitled SOILED "songs" into single files!
the internet told me that approximately 650-666 copies of USURP SYNAPSE´s IN EXAMINATION OF 6" were pressed on black vinyl. some included a color insert, most were black and white. some also came with an artificial blood pill. like mine! that´s the reason mine is now a little bit wrapped but still sounds ok! 5 tracks were on this 6 " that you´d call SCREAMO that is leaning towards GRINDCORE. reminds me of ORCHID or COMBAT WOUNDED VETERAN.
another great 7" from the U.K.! EBOLA´s IMPRECATION 7" delivers you 9 tracks of U.K. CRUST with a GRINDCORE edge and dual male / female vocals! comes with a nice booklet with the lyrics and some artwork to the lyrics! hard hitting stuff!
the Count did it once again! thanks to him you get the INSIDE OUT / YOUTH OF TODAY split 7" boot. INSIDE OUT were one of the best N.Y.H.C. bands that ever existed! listening to their 7" still sends shivers down my spine! sad but true 6 studio songs and this live tracks is their entire discography! besides the 6 INSIDE OUT live songs you get a YOUTH OF TODAY studio outtake that´s not on any official release!

one of the cool side effects of doing a blog is that once in a while you get stuff you wanted to hear for ages like the 3rd SPEED FREAKS comp. featuring ABUSE, ROT, MRTVÀ BUDOUCNOST, SUPPRESSION, SENSLESS APOCALYPSE and GLOBAL HOLOCAUST. another nice comp. released on KNOT. many thanks to Count Yorga!

VILENTLY ILL´s PLASTIC SOCIETY 7" might be the only record that was recorded on a home stereo in mono that will be posted here! VILENTLY ILL was/is Andrew, the guy behind KNOT records and a drum-computer. he released this 7" as a limited edition of 400 copies on his own label. 10 songs range from 29 seconds to 1.10 min and to be honest I´ve heard worser recordings than this and this was done on a home stero in mono I might remind you!. gets extra points for the "HATE IS THERAPY" on the backcover!
time for another bootleg 7"! this time NEGATIVE APPROACH´s YOU DIE NOW 7" which was released by MAX HATE records and might easily be one of the ugliest records ever made! this bootleg has just the ugly cover you can see above a backcover with the tracklist and that´s it! the 7" comes in really ugly blue vinyl and does not even have labels! on side a you get WHATEVER I DO & LEAD SONG as instrumentals + D.A.B.F. & CHAOS all in not really brilliant quality! the backcover says that this is NEGATIVE APPROACH´s demo from 1982 but doesn´t tell you if this is the whole demo (I doubt that) or just 4 tracks from that demo on side b you get 7 tracks and it says demo 81 but again no further information and again the soundquality is rather poor! on the other hand it´s just that we´re talking about NEGATIVE APPROACH and that means you need this anyway!
BAD ACID TRIP, AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED, LACERATION, DECAY, END OF THE CENTURY PARTY & FORCED EXPRESSION all on a 7" compilation that´s called SPEED FREAKS that was released by KNOT records...if you don´t know what to expect from that you´re wasting your time here it´s the wrong blog for you! actually this comp. is called SPEED FREAKS 2 and all together I think there are 4 issues! I´m sorry to say that I just got 1, 2 & 4 which is a shame as every single one of them is great! they´re all 3 an exception to the rule that HARDCORE 7" compilations suck! back to this one here: BAD ACID TRIP, AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED & LACERATION share side a and offer you 3 tracks each, DECAY, END OF THE CENTURY PARTY & FORCED EXPRESSION share side b and each of them has 2 tracks for you! that means 15 tracks all in all and there is not one track that is a complete let-down! once again Andrew did a fantastic job! if you´re interested in SPEED FREAKS 4 you should go here! the 1st one will be posted here soon(er or later) too!
another nice POISON IDEA bootleg! this time it´s a really well done German boot that has some gimmicks I´ve not seen anywhere else til now! cause this boot has the lyrics and German translations of the lyrics (ever seen that?) and synopses from of an interview. 5 tracks (of which some are live recordings but they´ve a decent sound!) has with DISCONTENT one of my all time POISON IDEA faves. the cover / backcover show some nice pics and tells you that just 600 were pressed! mine is on white vinyl!
all this VOORHEES stuff has been re-upped! this time with scans of the complete artwork and some have been ripped with 320 k/Bits this time!
