PRAISE HAIL SATAN!

another band that popped up out of the blue and managed to usurp a place among my all time faves at once are LEGION DCLXVI or LEGION 666 for those that have problems with the old Roman's way of spelling numbers. I'm still thankful to Chris Crustcracker for bringing this band to my attention! this is their KISS THE GOAT CD released by SCHIZOPHRENIC REC. in 2001. it's an older (CD-only-) release which is limited to 1000 copies, has nice artwork, really thoughtful lyrics and comes with a nice mini-poster. not as good as their last BLACK GOAT ARMAGEDDON full-length but still great. on their last 12" LEGION DCLXVI manage to melt PUNK, HARDCORE, CRUST, THRASHMETAL and old BLACK METAL (think VENOM not IDIOT & AND THE WANNABE NAZIS!) perfectly into an ass-kicking, unique sound. here they are quite successful already, making up some ground with a MOB 47 cover, but far from the perfection they got now! they also were the 1st HARDCORE band that used satanic images, etc. and made it to something like their identity! as a matter of fact they pushed the Satanism thing in images, lyrics, etc. to another level in the "scene"which I think is great and highly appreciated as far as I'm concerned! so my advise would be to get both records if you've the chance!


I just got my copy of the repress of the SYPHILITIC VAGINAS 12" on HARDCORE HOLOCAUST REC. and I think it's a killer record! the HARDCORE HOLOCAUST site tells you: "Here is the revised & final edition of Syphilitic Vaginas 12". Initially limited to 135 copies and released on Rescued From Life records, then repressed in an edition of 500 copies, this is a new repressing of 500 with a color change on the jacket design. To warn the meek: the 8 tracks contained on this album are among the most destructive Japanese style metal punk madness let loose this side of the millennium. The obvious inspirations are Japan’s original blasphemers GISM & ZOUO, but Syphilitic Vaginas offer a fresh take on the sound with a fitting lean towards imagery from Satanism & the Occult. 45rpm, no insert, all titles in Japanese." while I'd tend to agree on most of that I also know that there are a lot of rumors concerning them that range from being a fake Japanese band to whatever... well, I said it before but I guess I'd also like them if they were little green men from Mars in case they'd still play the same brand of DEVILPUNK. I'd be more curious about the occult stuff mentioned and if the advocating of human sacrifice done on the cover happened by design or by accident? hurry up if you want a copy as the re-press was just 500 copies! b.t.w. the "all Japanese titles" should translate to:
1.) Sacrifice Tonight (Intro) / 2.) Motor Demon / 3.) Possessed To Fuck / 4.) Angel Of Destruction / 5.) In Satanic Service / 6.) Armageddon Buttfuck / 7.) Nightly Fighter / 8.) Cloven Hoof (Outro)

    I've heard that before but I don't know if it's true and I don't care to be honest. I like them if they're from Nippon or from the U.S.

  7. Just to make things clear, a bunch of Magnus stuff is put out by guys I know, Reprocreate [RxIxP], Rescued from Life and Hardcore Holocaust are/were all located in Texas [Austin & Forth Worth] so, these guys know.
    Although I agree, it shouldn't matter, music speaks for itself.
