Anyway, lets kick some noise,and we are going to start with the same band posted in the beginning of this hiatus: Total DIsaster is a split cd with Total Silence and Nefärioüs D-saster, Total Silence is not unknown to this blog since all releases were posted from time to time: D-Beat one man band from Brazil and already has several releases under the belt, Guile.Lundström the mastermind behind this powerhouse contributes four songs of D-Beat in the usual top level of his previous works including a Crude SS cover. Nefärioüs D-saster is a Death/Crust band from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil with thrashy shreding guitar, D-Beat drums and brutal vocals, this is primitive and raw home made recording, a sonic vomit in four tracks too including a Disrupt cover. Released by Decapitated Records and Grave of the 80's distro
Another release from Total Silence, Guile's one man project : Noise Punk Bombardment is goin to come out as cassette and cd on Decapitated Records and is currently availabe in bandcamp.

Noise Punk Bombardment brings six tracks and nearly thirteen minutes of D-beat punk full of energy and anger and simillar to Besthoven. There is an old school flavor, Guile doesn't need overdistorted guitars and endless feedback of reverb to deliver the goods.

Nuclear Altar from Croatia are back with Mankind In Decline their second demo after Blessed Ruins from 2013. The band is not new to this blog but for those who are not familiar, Nuclear Altar come from Požega, Croatia, Blessed Ruins was their frist demo, the songs appeared in a split tape with Hellback, there is also a live 4 way split tape with Propast, Hellback and Noname. Blessed Ruins was a piece of old school D-beat but the line up changes and guitarist's steps to a more dark and metallic path as appeared in his one man project Gutterskull and its offspring Crawling in Disgust are somehow obvious here and brought a new feeling to Mankind In Decline sound: This is raw and old school but with a slight metallic touch and sometimes dark and emotional feeling, There are 14 tracks here including covers of Hellkrusher, UBR and Dislike and following the pattern of Blessed Ruins, deliver pure D-beat (Ghostblood Rituals, Hell) but also slower and dark tracks (Slavonian Funeral, Dismal Worship Begins wich also appears in first demo). Lyrics & logo by kktz (guit), artwork by Željko Lučić. All and all this is a honest and nice effort, as good as their frist work, Oh i almost forgot it: This is a DIY effort and considering this, the result is decent. This is currently available only in bandcamp, a cassette release is going to pop up soon. Dnld link is provided by the band

Their first cassette Wolrdwide Death Culture was a great shit of raw punk and Security Shutdown follows the same pathway: '8 new tracks of fast, raw and chaotic anger! As furious and nihilistic lyrically as they are musically, following on from where their 10 track demo from last year left off, the intensity is raised further with these new recordings, blending Disclose, Shitlickers, Frigora,Anti Cimex, Maquina Muerta etc' they deliver a sonic chaos, distorted and primitive raw punk simillar to Electric Funeral, Paranoid, Death Dust Extractor, Disease, Life Chain, Disguise and the likes. What makes a difference here is the lyrics: Polis Äckel deliver socio-political-anaechist lyrical content instead of the usual anti-war polemic verses calling for social revolt, fiery as their music. As epilogue: This band delivers the goods and is among the best raw punk bands coming out of Italy i can only compare them with Kompott. Security Shutdown is available from Imminent Destruction and also in bandcamp for streaming
