another sweet split 7" released by SPIDERGHOST PRESSGANG in 2006 on brown vinyl is shared by NEVER HEALED and VIOLENT MINDS and is called: ARMOURY OF FEARLESS TRUTH AGAINST WHISPERING RUMOR. truth be told I mainly bought this cause of the VIOLENT MINDS tracks as their self-titled 7" really fucking rocks but NEVER HEALED are no let down either. in fact I even like their 2 songs better than the 2 VIOLENT MINDS songs. I remember a discussion I saw on the web about NEVER HEALED and their views cause of some modified NS-artwork they've used on a live-tape (I think) but I do neither remember any details nor where I saw it cause of this I'll stick to the facts: this split hasn't any shady artwork (neither does the other NEVER HEALED 7" I got) and the lyrics are also clean. if anybody has more info - fill me in! d/l button down below!
technically this is a re-up cause I already had posted CAPITALI$T CASUALTIES' PLANNED COMMUNITY 6" ages ago but as the old archive didn't incl. the artwork I decided to treat it like a new post. I guess I don't have to write much about CAPITALI$T CASUALTIES anyway as they are around for forever and have splits with countless other bands under their belt. on this 6" they stick to what they are best at and deliver 3 tracks of fast, angry & vicious HARDCORE that takes no prisoners.

here it is once again: my love for unusual record sizes, especially 6"es and 8"es displayed in the COMBAT WOUNDED VETERAN / ORCHID split 6". you get 5 slashers from COMBAT WOUNDED VETERAN and 2 tracks from ORCHID. that's 7 tracks of raging music plus great artwork which makes this 6" a great record from start to finish. the most eye-catching thing on this 6" is the cut out skull on the back no doubt about it. click the d/l button on the bottom!

as both tracks from the SHIN TO SHIN / PULLING TEETH split 7" are also included in the A389 Records compilation one can d/l for free I think posting them here too won't hurt anybody's feelings. anyway, this was supposed to be a split 5" and I assume it ended as a 7" cause the SHIN TO SHIN track runs 2:55 which is 30 seconds too long for a 5". as I got a weak spot for 5"es, etc. I'd normally be really pissed off that it was released as a 7" instead of the 5" it was supposed to be but this split is an exception! I've already told you before that it contains only one track from each band 7". and while the PULLING TEETH track is far from being bad and has everything you wish for if fast metallic (obviously SLAYER influenced) HARDCORE is your thing it's no match for the inferno SHIN TO SHIN unleash! I never doubted that Aaron Melnick would let me down with his new band but I'd have never thought that he could pull off something like this! this is the most perfect mix of G.I.S.M. and Clevo styled HARDCORE I've ever heard and every fucking second of this track slays! I even like the artwork! more of them please! click the cover above to d/l!
