Burnchurch-st lp

Now here is something really interesting:  Burnchurch is a new Dublin based band with ex/current members of Easpa Measa, Rat's Blood and Silence (from Poland) playing incredibly intense & melodic HC/Crust. Great guitar riffs, driving Basslines, D-beatish, forward drumming and Clodagh's remarkable voice. Reminding me in times of bands such as Preying Hands, Ballast, Unhinged, Garmonbozia and alike .... Those who know these bands, will love it - all others need to check it out!!! So powerful and convincing, it doesn't even need fancy shit like limited editions - just 500 black vinyls wrapped in thick gatefold cover. And dont forge the awesome artwork done by Sean Fitzgearld, the gatefold cover reveals the artwork at its greatness when open it (here), Brilliant! This is available in bandcamp along with the lyrics. The record is a co-release of several labels:Contraszt! Records, Dogs and Vultures Up the Punx and Trujaca Fala,

The Dark Skies Above Us-Resistance: ANTI​-​NSBM Volume 1

A group of around 60 fascists (mostly from CasaPound) attacked activists from Cremona’s Dordoni social centre. The attack on seven or eight activists was launched by around ten people, and very soon bolstered by 40 more. Emilio, one of the activists and someone very well known in Cremona, was beaten with a bar and then kicked in the face and head as he was lying on the ground. The attack appears to have been prepared in advance, taking advantage of a football match to bring together fascists from Parma, Brescia and other towns with those from Cremona. Emilio is now in a very serious condition, he is in coma. Dordoni’s activists have made a complaint that the fascists were merely identified by the police and then released but that the activists who were defending Dordoni were charged.
Anti-racist activists from Cremona and from all over Italy have called for a national anti-racist demonstration in Cremona on 24 January, and for solidarity demonstrations in many different cities. Clashes broke out at an anti-racist rally in Cremona, Italy when around 2,000 protesters took to the streets to object to this attack by far-right group supporters. According to La Stampa, the protesters were trying to reach the headquarters of CasaPound and broke windows and vandalised streets in the process.
This episode is not isolated: there have been many different attacks let by CasaPound or other far-right movements over the last few months. In September, in Naples, a high school student was beaten by some far-right individuals. In Rome, in November, a group of far-right militants attacked supporters of Ardita San Paolo football team.
All the money from this compilation will go to Emilio for medical care and to CSA Dordoni squaters.
Racism: the maximum of hatred for the minimum of reason.
Love music – hate racism!

SardanapalmDeath-Κονομικός Κύκλος lp

Οι "SardanapalmDeath" είναι ένα μουσικό εγχείρημα που δημιουργήθηκε στα πλαίσια της ανάγκης τριών ανθρωπων που θελησαν να εκφραστουν και να εκφράσουν τις ιδέες τους. Δρουν μακριά από μαγαζιά, δισκογραφικές εταιρίες, κόμματα, μ.μ.ε. και συμμετέχουν σε αυτοοργανωμένες συναυλίες και εκδηλώσεις με πολιτικοκοινωνικό χαρακτήρα ενάντια στο κράτος και στις παρενέργειες του, εκφράζοντας παράλληλα την αλληλεγγύη και την στήριξη τους σε καταλήψεις και αυτοοργανομένους χώρους. Οι "Σαρδανάπαλοι" είμαστε οι Νάσος φωνή, Γιώργος κιθάρα, Τσόσμη μπάσο και Αποστόλης τύμπανα. Το '09 κυκλοφόρησαμε ένα demo cd με δώδεκα κομμάτια, ηχογραφημένο από πολυκάναλη πρόβα στο "Προκάτ35". Τον Αύγουστο του '13 ηχογράφησαμε δέκα κομμάτια στο αυτοοργανωμένο εγχείρημα "Zero Point Studio" στην Πάτρα και τα κυκλοφόρησαμε ένα χρόνο μετά σε cd και βινύλιο με τίτλο "Κονομικός Kύκλος". Ο δίσκος βγήκε σε τριακόσια αντίτυπα, σε συνεργασία με τα distro-label "Screaming Victims", "Sabrota Diy", "We Don't Fight It", "Music We Create", το Γαλλικό "Ravachol Productions", το Αυστριακό "ThC Αnd DiY Records" και το Τσέχικο "Rauha Turva", ενώ το cd από τη "Flowers In Concrete Productions"
