Toxicology-Discredit The Badge & Paid By the Kill demos

i know Toxicology since they unleashed the three track Shellshock from Birth demo back in 2013, they come from Fairlawn, New Jersey and their first recording was a grind/crust blast with rough vocals, all out political lyrics, D-beat drumming and shreading guitar riffs, in ther next recordings Discredit The Badge (2016) & Paid By the Kill (2015), the band moved into more brutal and grinding pathways and transformed into a grindcore band influenced by Excruciating Terror, Infest, Napalm Death, Repulsion, Siege, Nasum, Rotten Sound Disrupt,etc D-beat parts stilll exist but the whole thing is wayyyy more brutal, there are four tracks in each of the last demos incl, a re-recording of Inherited manslaughter which first appeared in Shellshock from Birth, All and all this stuff is brutal and atrocious, no need to say anything else. All demos are available in bandcamp.

Disaxis-Life ep

Disaxis is one of the few bands who have myspace page during 2016, instead farcebook or ReverbNation or blog or whatever. Oh come one man! get rid off this impractical crappy shit! (ok ok there is a tumbrl page, here) The band is one man project from St Thomas, Ontario, Canada and this is the debute recording, released in autumn of 2015. Life consists of seven tracks of D-beat with sick black metal-ish vocals and the simplicity of music reminiscent of greek D-beaters Doomed Again with the addition of a few crust parts in guitar riffs here and there. The prons of Life are the guitar riffs, the decent sound and some nice lyrics, the cons are the lack of variety in singing and drum beat since all songs walk in simillar pace but what the hell, repetitiveness is the main accusation against such bands so just ignore the cons.. Anyway this is good effort and hope to hear more from that guy, Life is available in bandcmp along with the lyrics.

Disacusia-Tripalium ep

Disacusia come from João Pessoa- PB, Brazil and Tripalium is their debute ep, recently uploaded in bandcamp. As usual i know nothing about the band since their mail was "Hello! We are Disacusia band of the city of João Pessoa- PB, Brazil !  We launched our first official material", music wise they deliver Crust D-beat with metallic flavor, i know this sounds generic but thats what they deliver, sometimes they remind of their Brazilian crusties Barrikaadi from Bello Horizonte with a slightly more brutal apporach to music because of the grindcore hints that pop up sometimes. The ep is available in bandcamp, check them in farcebook, twitter, soundcloud and instargram..
 And a little trivia:Tripalium is an instrument of torture involving three stakes

Voice of Crows/Hadak Ura-split tape

Voice of Crows and Hadak Ura come both from Ohio, United States and here they team up for a split release that will come out as cassette. Both bands are unknow to me, Voice of Crows (not any site around) come from Central/South-East Ohio, they deliver five tracks of D-beat driven crust with metallic and mournful guitar feeling, simillar to neo-crust/melodic crust bands, fast and sometimes extremelly fast, with deep low shouted vocals, the pace gets slower to tracks such as Cost of Love and Love Illussions with these slow intros before the rest of song take off while the ending track Turn To The Clouds is a slow emotional crust anthem,
Hadak Ura come from Columbus, they contribute four songs, blending hardcore with black metal and grindcore. their noise is rough, dark and ear tormenting with doomy heaviness, the songs pace vary from fast to slow and emotional (Planned Obsolescence has this slow emotional part that kicks ass) while the vocals come from the black metal territory. Both bands songs are uploaded in bandcamp, the tape is going to come out soon

Atomkrig-st 7"

Atomkrig come from Lisbon, Portugal and include people who were/(are?) in mighty Sustëem Kooma, who's Another Victim, Another War was a great piece of or D-beat punk, a pure early Warvictims worship and one of my favorite releases of the last year, Atomkrig continue the same tradition of D-beat and recorded siz tracks in May/August 2015 for a 7" that will be released by Crucificados Pelo Sistema in May/June. Music wise Atomkrig deliver rough D-beat crust but without the deep and clear Warvictims inspiration. This is full of power and anger typical three chord D-beat with decent for the genre sound quality. As i said many time in the past in simillar cases, there is no any novelty nor reinvention of genre here but pure and solid D-beat as we known it. Thats it. Members of band are/were also in bands such as F.D.P.D.C., Reltih, Barba de Sapo, A Tree of Signs, Disthrone, Scum Liquor and Extreme Unction. This is courently available in bandcamp.

Ψύχωση-st lp

This is the absolut Amebix worship from a crust band coming from Greece: "Ψύχωση (Psychosis) were formed in 1993 and played excellent crust punk following the footsteps of 'Chaotic End' and 'Forgotten Prophecy'. Numerous live sets in Villa Amalias and almost every self-organized place of the era. They participated in the compilation "Disturbing Domestic Peace" while they released a demo in 1994 (Η Ταφή της Οργής (Burial of Wrath) demo tape, listen it here). During the years 1996 and 1997, eight tracks were recorded for their first album aiming to release it on vinyl but unfortunately never happened. In 1998 they played their last live set and dissolved afterwards. Thanks to the cooperation and persistence of Scarecrow Records and Nikos from Labyrinth Of Thoughts, after 18 years this long lost gem will be released on vinyl in September 2015. With new mastering and 4 page insert with lyrics and posters of the bands live sets." Limited to 350 copies and more than 35 (!) minutes total running time. You can get the record from Labyrinth of Thoughts and Scarecrow, you can also stream it in bandcamp

No Sanctuary-Demo 2016

"We're No Sanctuary and we formed in 2014 with the idea of playing some blend between Black Sabbath, Celtic Frost and Amebix (hence our name) adding in the way some vibes from Rudimentary Peni and Killing Joke. The result is some kind of weird crust or something like that, one we're trying to improve with our new songs.Some months ago we self-released our first record where it can be seen to some extent this blend I'm talking about and which includes 7 songs: four fast songs, two slower (one of them is our particular homage to Nick Blinko) and a Killing Joke's Wardance cover."
These guys come from Pablona, Spain. The demo delivers nearly 24 minutes of metallic crust blending Amebix with the other afforementioned bands (Rudimentary Peni and Killing Joke) and with a sick feeling coming from the metal territory, a Celtic Frost-ian flavor painting the crust metal and adding a sinister feeling (check Outside the Circle). This is dark and gloomy, evil and psychotic especially in tracks such as Wytchtanyc Hellbykers and Marcha fúnebre para Nick Blinko/Réquiem oriental/Falo rudimentario but despite the metal elements the band stays in crust pathways and territories. This is available in bandcamp

Plant-Consious punk

"We are Plant. We three people and play a mixture of HC-Punk, Crust, Sludge und Dub. Since we formed the band we played a lot in DIY music places in Hamburg and recorded some songs at a friends studio. We consider ourselves an anarchist bands, we're all active in different subculture stuff (political groups, diy concerts). All our music is up for free download and we try to play only shows which have a diy and leftwing background. We also do all the stuff ourselves (booking shows, artwork, etc. ) or with the help of friends. The songs will also be released on tape in a few months via Amator Tapes (own tape label) and Uga Uga Tapes which is run by a close friend of ours."
Consious Punk consists of seven tracks of punk blended with a shitload of genres,:Dub, ska punk, hardcore, crust etc, with shouted vocals, if you are into such mixing of genres then this is for you but as i said in Repressione's post a few days ago, the most important in such bands is their political stance,. This is available in bandcamp, check their blog, its very interesting with many political statements and local news. Guys apologies for the delay to post your recording

Not A Cost-Tour demo 2016

"We are an 4 piece anarchist crust outfit from so called Victoria, Canada.  when we started nearly 3 years ago this was everyones first band. bassplayer now plays in Iskra, vocalist plays in an anarcho punk group called Infantile Dissention. we never really had a style in mind other then political punk. we never really had a specific sound in mind so all our influences blend together into our songs. Anti-colonial, Anarchist, genre-bending crust from un-ceded lekwungen territories on occupied turtle island. Music to entice the collapse of civilization."
The first release of Not A Cost was the six track self-released Branches ep, The demo tape consists of four songs, three new tracks from their upcoming lp plus a Carcinogen cover, Music wise, Not A Cost brings (black) metal orientated crust with band's own identity, metallic and thick, sometimes heavy and blasting, sometimes slower and emotional with  stops and goes and tempo changes, and shrieking and screamed rough vocals coming fom the black metal territory. I'd say they are a ;ittle bit less frantic version of Iskra. Lyrics wise, there's only this i can say: Sit down and spend sometime and read what the singer its great work done there, all out political and far from the one line slogan like lyrics of most D-beat bands. The demo is available in bandcamp along with lyrics. Mysteriously, there's no any site, blog, farcebook, whatever page of band.

Braincell-Mindlock tape


Braincell hail from Malaysia, they are a new band, Mindlock is their first release but members carry a a history since they are related with bands such as Apparatus, Atomicdeath, Melarat, Antiprotokol and Ferocious Inferno. When i first met these guys in bandcamp and apart from the great cover, i had no any doubt about them when i saw the bands  they list as their inspiration: Discharge, Disaster, Doom, Axegrinder, Antisect, Amebix, Hellkrusher, Hiatus, 3 Way Cum, Discard, Disfear (old), Disgust, E.N.T., Bastard (Japan), Anti-Cimex, Shitlickers, Warcollapse, State Of Fear, and mighty MOTÖRHEAD! Mindlock was self-released and came out in pro 200 copies with great artwork. Band members seem to adore Doom and they don't feel ashamed to let this love appear in their music: This is a pure Doom worship, a page taken from Doom's book, the six tracks of cassette sound like a Doom recording and deliver the goods, Everything is perfect here, the sound quality is decent and the band delivers a bass heavy sound,some Antisect and Hellkrusher elements pop up here  and there but Doom is always the main inspiration. The singer shouts in English and the cassette lasts for nearly eleven minutes, All and all this is a great piece of D-beat and along with Lifelock and Krigssystemet they stand among the best bands i discovered recently and they come from South East Asia. The cassette is still available and also in bandcamp and youtube, i didn't see any site or blog or farcebook page around

Böset-Riv Alla Burar tape

"We are a hcpunk band from Mölndal (Gothenburg) from the shitcountry Sweden. All our lyrics are in swedish and is about animal rights, the planets decay, the endless struggle to smash racism and that people are free to be how they were born to be.  We have never played in any bands before and are happy beginners who soon will be playing live and maybe will be fucking up Europe.
The demo on bandcamp will be relesed on lightblue casette in Feb/Mars by ourselves, d.i.y style!
"Böset" is a local word from gothenburg and it means "the shit/dirt" and the casette tape will be named "Riv alla burar" witch means "Tare down all the cages".
Riv Alla Burar delivers ten tracks of raw kängpunk, the cover artwork may seem random and not so D-beat-ish but the music is the real deal: Raw and and in-to-your-face crust punk, no any novelties or long intros,outros or acoustic parts but just the basics: Raw D-beat kängpunk, sometimes fast sometimes slower. All lyrics are in Swedish, a translation in english would be a plus here. This is a good result considering the fact the members are for first time in a band, Listen it in bandcamp or contact the band for a cassette, ten tracks incl, a one second microsong that beats You Suffer in song lenght.

Bakounine/The Flue Sniffers-split lp

This is a split lp and cassette with two bands from France: D-beat crusties Bakounine need no introduction since i have posted almost all of their recorded matterial, here we got another release by them, this time a split lp with Flue Sniffers, released by a bunch of labels (Urinal Vinyl Records, Subversive WaysFFC ProductionsTrauma Social, DevianceJunky Monkey, Emrenadur Records and Svoboda Records), this came out in 500 copies and 60 copies as cassette (already sold out). The Flue Sniffers is totally unknown to me, members are from Britain and they live in France, they are a anarchopunk band in the vein of Crass, Confict, Antisect and the likes with dual vocals, this is their second release after the 19 track A Species Elite relesed by FFC Productions. The Bakounine side is available in their bandcamp, i don't need to say anything about their music, you already got to the point after all these posts with their releases.

Repressione-Fuoco tape 2016

Fuocco (fire) is the second release by the antifascist raw punks Repressione from Bologna, Italy. We first met them intheir debute Rumore e Rabia some months ago, Repressione is an raw punk band with old school grindcore and crust influences incorporated in their noise, a important shit about them is the antifascist, antiracist, antimachist and anticapitalist stance of members and that reflected in their lyrics and to be honest, to me this is most important than making any kind of music, especially in the new dark age we are living. Anyway Fuocco consists of ten songs incl, the cover of Spero Venga La Guerra, originally by Wretched, music wise this is a frantic punk attack full of aggression, passion and fury, blending the influence from local acts such as Wretched, Contastro etc and delivering a sonic hell,  The vocalist shouts his statements in a shitload of lyrics in each song, all songs are fast, sometimes in high speed and sometimes a little slower, the lyrics in most songs are in Italian, i wish there was translation in engligh in bandcamp where this is available along with lyrics and cover artwork. Overall this is a piece of raging punk good enough to deafen yourears. Fuocco is going to come out soon on cassette format in 50 hand-numbered copies. There is a dnld link provided by the band.
