Interview with two Vitality members done in 2012. Vitality is a H8000 band from the coastal region of West-Flanders. The interview was with Bob the lead guitarist and Steve the vocalist and took place in the ODK Skate Shop.
Still hunting down H8000 rarities, part 1. The Spineless transtition in Amenra album and the best Spirit Of Youth LP, 'Source' on green.
The split between Belgium's Building and America's Up Front. Rare color variations in picture.
This is the demo cassette of the one of the last H8000 bands born in the 90's. Legion was a band close to Vitality and hailing from Knokke at the east side of the Belgian coast and the Jabbeke area.

But because they were on tour together in 1998, this release does makes sense. … Continue reading Morning Again / 25 Ta Life split 7 inch
All Out War's second LP "For Those Who Were Crucified" is one of those classics that I will always like. It was the follow up to their classic debut "Truth In The Age Of Lies". It's their best LP in my opinion. Victory Records pressed all records they have the rights on from start to … Continue reading For Those Who Were Crucified
