BRATS - 1980 12”
(1980/2007, Denmark, Arg!)

Pre-Mercyful Fate. Half of these songs are really killer. Great raging, rock and roll punk.

JUVENTUD PODRIDA - Voces En Abismo / La Nada Al Final 7” flexi (one sided)
(2014, Panama, Logica Ciega - Guard Your Mind, Keardan - Noseke)

D-beat crust-core with death metal influences from Central America. The 1989 7” has a great Bombanfall feel to it, this one is a little more crust sounding…ie, more metal. But still good, nonetheless. I had the pleasure of seeing them live a few days ago, and it was fantastic. Sadly the sound on this seems to suffer a bit from the flexi format…you’ll have that. They had a tape with them as well, apparently it has their newest material on it. I haven’t listened to that one yet. This band and Disturd are two of the more enjoyable crusty bands that I have come across in recent times.

RAJOITUS / UTANFÖR SKAPET - Livet Verkar Meningslöst Igen 12”
(2014, Sweden/Finland, Fight Back - PPP - Turist I Tillvarom - Rawby)

New material from my current favorite modern Swedish / Finnish hybrid hc group, Rajoitus, means I need to get it. It’s more of the same….which means it’s pummeling and it rules. I don’t know anything about the other band, but they play competent rocking raw Swedish style hc as well with some guitar squeals thrown in. I don’t like their side as much, but Rajoitus is a tough act to follow. No lyric insert, which kinda sucks.

AMEBIX - Monolith 12”
(1988, U.K., Heavy Metal)

This is one of my all time favorites. This album masters the droning dark vibe for those cold, winter nights. Home made 11x11 insert with the lyrics and sticker/inserts you got if you mailed in for it.

GORILLA BISCUITS - Start Today 12”
(1989, USA, Revelation)

I remember pining so hard, wonder when the second LP was going to come out, and then it never did. It’s probably a good thing because these members went on to do other bands that made  more sense for what they wanted to do at the time. There was really no need for a post-HC GB album to come out. This record meant a lot to me as a kid, people tend to dismiss this record now, because they can’t relate to it anymore. This record played a big role in my formative years and had something to do with me becoming a vegetarian in 1990 (still am). I will never forget it.

INEPSY - Anti-System 7” flexi (one sided)
(2014, Canada, Disillusioned)

Unreleased track originally recorded during the first E.P. session in 2001. So if you love See You In Hell, this is a must!

CRASS - Penis Envy 12”
(1981, U.K., Crass Records)

Typically thought of as Crass’s most accessible album, but this in no way diminishes its greatness. I would like to know how many of these have been pressed in total. It’s pretty amazing, if you think about it.

STONE DAGGER - The Siege Of Jerusalem 7”
(2013/2014, USA, Electric Assault)

Vinyl pressing after a limited tape release. Here’s another metal project from Boston’s HC circle. This time I believe this was all written by the vocalist and had only a little guitar solo help. This feels like it has heavy influences from the 70s metal greats like Rainbow, Deep Purple, and so on. I really like these two tracks and for me, if done well, I could see liking an LP of this even more than Magic Circle’s album.

DESPERAT - Hardcore Deluxe 12”
(2010/2011, Sweden, D-Takt & Råpunk)

Some people seem to really like this band and some don’t. Personally I don’t see what the issue is, what is there not to like? Raw Swedish d-beat from a member of Mob47. The recording is raw, but still powerful. The over-boosted treble gets a little distracting when the high hat gets super loud out of nowhere, but I guess this is basically a demo, so there’s no need to have a fit about it. Originally put on tape and then came this obnoxiously low vinyl press of 300 (200 black covers, 100 white covers).
