Proper Hardcore by Ex-Hersey, Geriatric Unit and Army Of Flying Robots members. Patrick the singer on the LP and following EP left when he decided he didn't want to do it any more, the band has carried on as a three piece with Gords taking over vocal duties.
Black Metal from Water Springs, Florida. This is a compilation of all their early stuff between 1996 to 2001, including the first two demos, their side of the split LP with Conqueror (including unreleased alternate versions of some of the songs), the Summoning Of Infernal Legions 7" and their track from a Sarcófago tribute comp.
Death Metal from Kansas City featuring ex-members of Order From Chaos, which was one of the early bands that the shithead who wrote The Conqueror Manifesto was in, in fact he's the only won from Order From Chaos who isn't in this band, I'm guessing they got sick of his shit the way other bands he's been involved with have. This reissue was a limited press of 100 made for Nuclear War Now fest this year.
I use this blog to post rips I make of records I pick up at shows that I can't find anywhere else online, I will be putting up more Extreme Metal stuff that isn't remotely linked to Punk, deal with it.
Sludgeviolence from Tokyo. When they first started their songs were all just short bursts of Sludge but then they broke up or at least went on a short hiatus, after they got back together they started to lean more towards long slow songs with occasional short fast parts. This album has a Nirvana 2002 cover on it, really.
International Grind/PV comp featuring mostly new tracks by; Six Brew Bantha, ACxDC, Sheeva Yoga, Horsebastard, Sordo, Sickmark, The Kill, Fissure, Bloody Phoenix and Caged Grave. Comes with 100 page A4 zine, want to read it, buy it then.
Grindviolence from Žďár nad Sázavou and Poděbrady, Czech Republic with Male/Female co-vocals. Here's a few of their splits I picked up at this year's Chimpyfest that I couldn't find anywhere else online.
Malignant Tumour split 7" 2004
Malignant Tumour are a Grindcore band from Ostrava, Czech Republic. Lyrics on Lycanthrophy side are in Czech and English, also worth mentioning they do a Limp Wrist cover.
Again, sorry for the long silence, I just started a new full time job two months ago which means I have less time to go to shows and make rips of the records I buy at shows but I did buy an irresponsible amount of vinyl at this years Chimpyfest which should keep in in content for this for a while as well as other random stuff I've picked up.
Jeff "Transpuncher" Beckman is back. Boasting a member of both Chokehold and Left For Dead would make Haymaker infamous enough if it weren't for their reputation of rarely being able to play shows due to crowd violence and fires breaking out in clubs because of fireworks being let off by friends of the band at their behest (no, really).
This EP was originally only released with a special skate deck package with only 200 pressed, but then the band took pity on those of us who don't skate or aren't willing to pay loads just to get the 7" so a clear vinyl/sleeve version was printed with just 40 pressed.
DIY Indie from New York raised on early Rough Trade Post-Punk. Members have since gone on to play in All Saints Day, La Sera, The Babies, Coasting and Chain & The Gang. According to an interview with Kickball Katy on Damian from Fucked Up's podcast Turned Out A Punk (if you're a nerd from everything Punk and Hardcore, I high recommend listening to any episode), Vivian Girls were almost universally hated by the Punk scene during their time.
Death Metal from New Jersey featuring Daryl Kahan of Citizens Arrest on vocals. They have been around since 1999 and have a several releases but these are just a couple of things of theirs I picked up at Netherlands Deathfest.
Infamous Black Metal Skinheads from Vancouver, Canada. Formed in 1984 (put not putting out anything officially until 1989) they have the distinction of being the first Black Metal band to have a Black member (there's also Mystifyer from Brazil who were formed and released their first 7" the same year as Blasphemy put out their demo). This 10" came with the reissue of Gods Of War/Blood Upon The Altar on Osmose Productions, all the material here was re-recorded on the Fallen Angel Of Doom LP, hence the title.
"Well I've put up the discography tape of that Finnish band I saw in September, I should probably order the 7" they ran out of before they played down South, hope it comes with a download code. Oh no, it doesn't, guess I'll make a rip of this as well."
