Modern day Hardline band from Germany with a more than urgent message inspired me to write an ecology vs economy manifest. With short record review also.
The classic 'Deforestation' 7 inch of Culture on blue vinyl and the 'Heteronome' CD from Good Life Recordings.
Along with the Statement "Decide" pre-orders, I also bought another copy of the Titan and Witness The Fall 7 inch. I already reviewed the split release in a previous post. This time I bought the blue version, which also looks very good. Still loving the music and am starting to appreciate Titan more and more. … Continue reading Titan & Witness The Fall 7 inch blue vinyl
All of a sudden Statement is back with a new record. They still play that old school sounding metal but now have a new vocalist, Tim. The music is still good, no decay from their earlier work. Even a bit more smoothly executed, it's the best side of the record. The vocals sound deep and … Continue reading Statement "Decide"
I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it; the Statement 7 inch became an LP. That's amazing to say at least. The release "Prepare For Battle" has been officially released as an LP with two additional tracks and is called "Prepared For Battle". It's a collaboration between a Spanish label and the label of … Continue reading Statement "Prepared For Battle" LP
This split 7 inch came out on Bound By Modern Age Records. It's a split between Titan, a band from Belgium and Witness The Fall, a band from The Netherlands. Titan was the new band for me to check out. Their musical style at first reminded me of late-Kindred to Enemy Of The Sun. Although … Continue reading Titan & Witness The Fall split 7 Inch
The last new songs of the best Vegan Straight-Edge band I've heard in a long time. All the good things don't last long, at least that is what a Dutch saying says. "Cleansing" is a two song 7 inch to follow up their successful LP "The Sickness Of Eden". Expect a sound even more close … Continue reading xRepentancex "Cleansing" 7 inch
The last record I got in my Good Life Recordings order is a sweet one of a kind Reprisal LP. As you might see, a transitional version between the clear and the black version. It's mainly clear with traces of black vinyl in it. Backside of the sleeve tells us that there are 500 copies … Continue reading Reprisal "Mail Order Knife Set"
This post is about a big contester for my favorite release of the year. Repentance "The Sickness Of Eden" is a crusher from beginning to end. Listening to it gives me hope that nowadays Hardcore records can still be as awesome as when I listened to them almost 20 years ago. There was a phase … Continue reading We Used To Speak Of Justice
Surrounded Records from Italy, Rome to be exact, was a label who focused on the truly Vegan Straight-Edge bands during the late 90's. The most well-known bands on this label were undoubtedly Strength Approach and Purification. I have several of their releases but not all. Will start with the first one I have (Surrounded #4) … Continue reading Surrounded Records #4: V/A Out Of Cages
