RECIPES: Vegan chicken

As some of you might know I am an enthusiastic vegan / vegetarian chef. I recently discovered some weird frozen fake meat and fake fish products I have to tell you about. I will report my experience with theses products. Hopefully I will spark interest in theses cool alternatives. Some are vegetarian and some are even vegan! Check the internet to get theses products. Vegefarm.de is offering some of these and your local Asian supermarket might sell some.
Let´s start with some vegan chicken pieces. 300 grams(about lbs 0.66) cost about 4 euro. That quite expensive but it´s worth every cent! My first impression as I opend the bag was: Holy shit! This smells exactly like chicken. The smell you recognized when you walk by a chicken diner!! This is weird! I didn´t know whether I hate or love this fact! This smell became even more intensive as I joint the pieces. I was told that theses chicken pieces don´t have to be seasoned, or just slightly if you like it spicy. I just added some chicken condiment and some curry for it goes perfectly with chicken.
When I tasted the first piece I couldn´t believe it!! When I do remember it correctly, this is how real chicken tastes for sure!!! I never tasted anything vegan before that comes so closely to the taste of chicken!! I totally felt in love with the taste. Even the texture reminded me of real chicken meat! Okay the last time I eat real meat is almost 18 years ago but nevertheless I assure you that is this taste is so close to real chicken that you´ll love this cruelty free alternative to a dead animal!
You can get some cool recipes containing this chicken pieces here (German language).
If you are from Germany and you have problems to get those fake meat / fish products get in touch with me. I can provide you an email address where you can get it.

HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH - Goatmeal

Ok I don´t want to deprive you of my current favourite power violence band! I never heard of HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH before, or even COWABUNGA records. I actually bought it because of some reviews I read. I know.. I know.. I often tell you how good a record / a band is, but this time it´s more adequate than ever! One of the best power violence bands I´ve heard in years!!! Always hyper speed, always on point, always pissed as fuck, always harsh to the max. 3 bandmembers, three shouters. Average length of a song: about 10 seconds with 20 songs on a 5"!!! Everytime I hear this 5" I almost wet my pants about how good it is. Pissed vocals instead of shitty growls / grunts which makes it even better to me!
The last song `from god´s anus to your mouth´ is a proper song with a duration of almost 2 minutes!! I´d like to dedicate this song to `the pope´ (AM I MEAN blog) for this is about his favourite issue `religion´.
Next I´m going to post HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH´s split 10" w/ CHAINSAW TO THE FACE. So be prepared. In the meantime bow low to the Goatmeal 5"
I already got in touch w/ the band to get their other outputs! Hopefully you can expect more stuff from this outta range band!

BOOKBURNER - s/t

Holy satan! Have you ever heard of BOOKBURNER? Imagine a grindcoreband playing their violent attacks with an modern Hardcore production? I mean this 7" sounds tight like some very well produced NYC hardcorebands. The dry and unusual sound makes this 7" even better. They haul off with some heavy sludge parts to kick your teeth in with some sick hyperspeed blastparts. This is really brutal stuff. The only reason why this 7" doesn´t turn you into a driveling nervous wreck is because it´s too short. 11 songs (well 12 but I wasn´t able to cut one song right), most of the under 15 seconds + one strange sound collage. If you like DESPISE YOU, SUPPRESSION or MAN IS THE BASTARD you will love this record. They are definately going to play a big role in modern power violence!
BOOKBURNER on themself: `Bookburner is honest grind and we have no room for conventionality, and that's all you need to know, fuckers.´ So no Myspace profile you little shit!
`Hard like the devil of toothache - release´ on cool new label One six oh records. Check out the band and the label!

MULE SKINNER - Abuse

Actually I wanted to post some other records but I have to offer you this Cd first. I´m so glad that I got a copy of the MULE SKINNER Cd when it came out because it´s almost impossible to get it by now. Top notch Grindcore in the vein of old Terrorizer or 324. It´s so powerful, so good. I don´t know why this germ never has been rereleased. Read the comments at the myspace profile of the band - so many people are looking for a copy. Like their first 7" this Cd (-only) was released by small French record label SLUDGE Records. I don´t know if the pressing was so limited or if the distribution was so bad or if the owner of SLUDGE records lodges most of the copies under his bed. All I know is that it´s a shame that so few people have a copy or even heard of this musically destruction! In true grindcore tradition, Mule Skinner rip and tear their way through 23 intense tracks in about 35 odd minutes. Each track is a crushing, tornado of punk infused crusty grind with loads of blast beats, crushing breakdowns, odd riffs, grunted vocals and raw power. After 12 years this Cd didn´t lose it´s overwhelming crushing effect. Absolutely no metal here, just pure mid 90s audio violence. Don´t expect a high end production like some recent swedish grind acts have. This 12 years old! But it still rocks!!! Check it out!

ANTI YOU - Making your life miserable

Awsome 7" from this fresh Italian Band. ANTI YOU from Rome play a nice mix between early 80s US punk and mid 80ies Italo thrash. It´s raw and unsophisticated. It sounds like they give a shit about a good production or anything else. The way it should be. This 7" was orginally released on Cd on SOA Records from Italy a year or so ago. Finally it was pressed on vinyl, the real deal!
Their lyrics complete the music by saying just fuck you to everything in a funny manner! What do you expect from a band that called the 1sided ep "pig city life"? (I love this title for I love wordplays). Just a cool release with cool lyrics from a cool band. Get it!
Ah and by the way: The new 7" called `Johnny Bagdad` is a real letdown compared to this! It sounds like they tried while the just did on `Making your life miserable´!
If you are interested: I found some cool band-related artwork at http://www.scarful.com/antiyou.html
