ANTISECT: Out from the Void 7″ (Endangered Musik, UK, 1986)


Maybe this is and always has been more of a record that I wanted to like, than one that I really did like. I don’t recall the review I wrote for my fanzine, when “Out from the Void” came out, but I tend to believe that it wasn’t bad at all. Yet, in the years […]

NIKOTEENS- 1st 7″EP (selfproduced, Germany, 1981)


Formed in 1979, Germany’s NIKOTEENS released this 7″ on their own. The songs were originally intended to be included on the now legendary «Soundtracks zum Untergang» compilation album, but got rejected by label owner Karl Walterbach (who founded “Noise Rerords” out of the ashes of “Aggressive Rockproduktionen”, when Metal was the new thing and Punk […]

PUSRAD- Smart Trams 7″ EP (Just4Fun, USA, 2012)


Perfection. Sort, sharp, to the point. Clever, full of energy, sounding like the best and yet like no one else. I’m sorry, but there’s nothing more that I could say. This yellow piece of plastic has so much energy, it makes me breathless. Thus the concept of “Smart Trams” is perfect: Short songs – and […]

OLHO SECO- Botas, Fuzis, Capacetes 7″EP (Punk Rock Discos, Brazil, 1983)


There is something about this debut 7″ by OLHO SECO that is irresistible. First off all, it’s “Nada”, which is one of the worldwide super hardcore punk hits, immortalized and first brought to most via MRR’s “Welcome to 1984” sampler. Its simplicity and effectivity is astounding, almost scary. On the flipside, the other two songs […]

CRETINS / BLUT + EISEN- Split 7″ (Weird System, Germany, 1984)


“Dachau Disco” – what a title (as you know, Dachau is the name of a german village near Munich and notorious for being the location of one of the first nazi concentration camps). CRETINS wrote this song in 1979 and first released it on the legendary »HanNOver FunFunFun« compilation album, with different lyrics, that made […]

EXECUTIONER- Metal up your Ass, b/w Syco-pathic Mind 7″ (selfproduced, USA, 1985)


Just a couple minutes ago, on my fecalbook wall, I asked for somebody to help me with the writeup for this great and very rare 7″ by EXECUTIONER, which has been calling for a decent vinyl rip for a long enough time now. My friend Justin from Mustard Relics immediately came up with the following […]

AGENT ORANGE- VD. Hello Boy Friend, coming MY Way? 7″EP (New Wave Records, France, 1984)


Rule of thumb numba one when it comes to music: Good people make good music; rednecks make great music. Holland’s AGENT ORANGE with their second and final EP. Steamroller Hardcore Metal Punk at its most intense. Hit after hit until the final track, “Kill the Police”, makes you wanna go around and hug and kiss […]

MYTHRA- The Death & Destiny EP (Guardian / Street Beat, UK, 1979 / 1980)


A local NWOBHM band of some weight was MYTHRA. Even in Heidiland, they were taken notice of, most likely due to coverage in NME and Kerrang and maybe the formidable cover artwork played a role too.MYTHRA is one of the “big” groups in the “minor” league, and as they stated in an interview, they really […]
