Rhythm To The Madness was a Belgian band from the Powered Records time period. That took place during the mid to late 00's. That label released many Old School sounding bands from Belgium and larger Europe. Something totally different than the stereo- or proto-typical Metalcore Belgium is renowned for. Bands like True Colors, Justice, Common … Continue reading Rhythm To The Madness
Have I ever told you how good this record is? I have these records since they came out but never wrote about them on this blog before. Crime In Stereo plays what I call 'futuristic' Punk. Hard to define their style, although it's safe to say they don't play classical Hardcore per definition. It took … Continue reading Crime In Stereo "Is Dead"
This is the test press of the Rhythm Amongst The Chaos ep from Terror. The Hardcore band Terror was on the forefront of the Hardcore scene during a whole period in time. They toured relentlessly and continuously across the globe for almost a decade. So this record's title is more than adjust. Music brings rhythm … Continue reading Rhythm Amongst The Chaos Test Press
You know the feeling when you think you'll never find a certain record? Well, I've had it for ages with the pre-order version of the "Masterkiller" LP reissue on Reaper Records. This pressing has my favorite lay-out. Other versions, like the 1995 Century Media pressing look kinda awful in my opinion. A computerized image of … Continue reading MERAUDER Master Killer LP Reissue
A record that I sought after quite a long time and finally added to my collection. The second full-length of the band DAG NASTY. As this is on Dischord Records you can assume that is Washington DC hardcore. This was originally released in 1987. It's one of the classic's made by the band. Not as … Continue reading DAG NASTY Wig Out At Denkos LP Yellow
This is a good one! TRAPPED UNDER ICE in their primary state of mind and according music. The isolation that follows out of modern society and coldness that's left behind when you loose someone dear in life is perceived an described very well by Justice: you get the feeling that everything you love is slipping … Continue reading TRAPPED UNDER ICE demo 2007 Collection
I RISE is from Worcester Massachusetts USA and mix mid-90's sound with the sound of one of the greatest bands of the current decade; Have Heart. Also similarities to Soul Control can be found in the playfulness and finishing touch of the sound, certainly on the demo CD. When I first heard this ep I … Continue reading 1917 Records #12: I RISE "Down"
4 months in the pending phase, but finally a result is there. I'm talking about this deal I did with an American dude who had remarkably much and rare records from the label 1917 in his sell- list. Told you already that I confined myself more or less to organized collecting. And that records from … Continue reading 1917 Records #11: ATTITUDE "Turn Into Stone"
Finally in my hands; a complete Bracewar 'Juggernaut' collection. Clockwise you see, the CLEAR version; a version that everybody has... But then you have the WHITE which is a pre-order version and the RED is also a pre-order version but then for the faster people. Ultimately we have the pre-press that was handmade by 1917 … Continue reading 1917 Records #10: BRACEWAR "Juggernaut"
Again another fine Powered product to add to my growing Powered Records collection. And this is a rare one; it is the UK tour edition of the great RTTM ep called 'Soul Doubt'. As is the case with most tour or record release editions from Powered the sleeve is a additional sleeve folded over the … Continue reading RTTM "Faber Quisque Fortunae Suae"
