FINAL DRAFT / APATHETIC YOUTH - Split 7"

Inglewood´s in tha hoooouuuusssseee muthafukka!! FINAL DRAFT are in everybodys mouth at the moment for a good reason. They´re just insane. They just had their breakthrough with their recent 7". Here we have their 1st split 7" with their local homies from APATHETIC YOUTH who don´t even have to hide behind the DRAFT on this record. Well everybody has to hide from the lastest FINAL DRAFT 7" but this is their more decent older stuff. Don´t missunderstand me, this releases is still top notch high speed power violence but it´s more rough, more simple and hectic than the newer stuff from FINAL DRAFT. Make sure to watch out for their upcoming release on Regurgitated Semen records!! I ordered a shirt from the band last year and I can say that they´re really nice and reliable.
Okay let´s flip this little violent bastard: Here we have APATHETIC YOUTH (Do you always have to be apathetic like AxRxMx to share a record w/ the DRAFT?).
Holy moly is there something in the drinking water in Inglewood? Three Chicos fucking shit up!! Angry fast-like-whirlwind hardcore with two pissed singers. It´s not that typical power violence style it has more of a youth crew edge but played on 78 rp/m. Great stuff!!
Grap you skateboard an thraaaaash some shit!!
By the way: I love the rap samples both bands use, it makes the brutal stuff somehow hilarious.

WEEKEND NACHOS - s/t 8"

You might have heard about it, read about it, but have you ever heard the legendary nacho-shaped 8" of everybodies Power violence darlings WEEKEND NACHOS? Only 50 copies have been pressed and sold at the Repos farewell show on 3/29/2008.
This record is one of the coolest items in my collection. Like I said it´s nacho-shaped, one-sided and 8" of pure musical destruction.
Well okay, the 4 songs on this gem have been re-released in a new mastered version on the "This comp kills fascists" (Or "This BOX kills fascists" for the better hung guys like me, haha) on Relapse records, but I ripped my 8" anyway because the songs sound more raw and less clean on this record. You might think that a record, limited to 50 copies only contains outtakes or bad material but you are wrong here. The four songs are really awsome and represents WEEKEND NACHOS as the incredible killer band they simply are! My favorite song is Priorities which is perfect to sing along and has a stunning break-down: `Blowing off friends every day, just to get fucking laid. Fuck that!!!!´ I could write how great WEEKEND NACHOS are but if don´t even heard them yet you don´t deserve my effort of writing a describtion because we already wrote plenty of postings concerning the NACHOS.
Have fun with the most raw recordings I know from WEEKEND NACHOS. Oh and by the way: There´s some sizzling noise in some songs Chris and I weren´t able to filter out, sorry.

EXTORTION - Terminal cancer 7"

As you know, this is the recent EXTORTION 7" called Terminal cancer. The reason why I ripped my copy for you is that it seems that many people didn´t get their hands on this. So a lot of people who missed out asked me to rip my copy, that´s why I post a new record here, something I actually refuse. You might have heard that this EXTORTION stuff is different! They wanted to create something completely raw so they recorded these song on a Yamaha MT3X in a room. Check out the effect yourself. So raw and pissed like they´ve never sounded before (exept for their demo tape). Holy crap this 7" sounds so filthy and harsh. That´s what I needed after their disappointing split 5". Too bad only a few people were able to buy this gem!! I don´t even know why. Maybe it´s because of a bad distribution, SHORTFUSE records don´t even have an online presence and WAY BACK records don´t even mention attendance on this release on their homepage! I got my copy from Painkiller records but I was very lucky. Their copies were sold within days. Maybe there are 400 copies left under the bed of the head of SHORTFUSE records, I don´t know. I wish you all the best to get a copy of this amazing EXTORTION record. Check it out, you´re gonna love it!

Update: I received a snotty mail from Ronald (Way back when records) who seems to be pissed about what I wrote about Way back when records. So I stand corrected: check their incredible awsome killer webpage www.waybackwhenrecords.com
(When I posted it, it hasn´t been mentioned on the wbw homepage!)

INTO THE GORE - Bureau of disgust Cd

George one of the singers of INTO THE GORE wrote me about Mosh Eisley and asked me if I could post the last Cd of his band. I am a nice guy and Chris and I strongly believe in the Network of friends attitude so I agreed right away without even knowing INTO THE GORE.
When I received the Cd some days ago and gave it a try I was simply blow away!
I wanted to post the Cd to do him a favour at first but now I love to post it because it´s simply amazing. Their sound is described as death grind, but that´s too trivial to me. The guitars are very hardcore-ish almost punk-styled. Okay the drums sound kinda metal but I´d call it just very fast hardcore, filled with tons of blast beats and crunchy breakdowns. Two singers who do the high / low pitched vocals job. Really brutal shit!!!
Unfortunately the band split up after the tragical fatal motorcycle accident of Michale Alexander their co-founder, guitar player and high pitched singer. I never really realized the music scene of Greece but if there are more incredible bands like INTO THE GORE I should definately check it out. The Cd comes in a very cool digi pack, very extensive. George told me that he´d love to find a record label who´d release this album on vinyl. If somebody could help them out with the idea of releasing it on vinyl please get in touch with them through the myspace profile. Fasten your seat belts and check out this intense heavy band!!
