Relief-Demo tape 2016

Here is another diamond hidden among the dozens of new bands that pop up in bandcamp everyday: Relief come from Richmond, Virginia and deliver D-beat crust punk reminiscent of Doom in music and vocals.They are another case of obscure band with no any information floating on the web, just a vid here from Punx Picnic in January 2016 in Baltimore. Anyway the demo came out as cassette and is available from the band, (you can cintact them via mail in bandcmamp), it consists of nearly fifteen minutes of D-beat crust punk in the vein of Doom, Hiatus and the likes. even their name comes from a Doom song so what else you expect? even the vocals and the singing style reminds of Doom. oh and what a surpsise, there is a Relief cover here! This is fuckin great and stands among the best demo releases of this year. The cassettes include lyrics. The demo is available in bandcamp



Caustix-Total Noise War tape 2015

Now this is really good piece of D-beat: Caustix hail from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, they deliver D-beat raw punk,  i searched the web but i didnd't find any info about them, just some gigs they played in. Total Noise War is their debut release which came out in 2015 in 50 copies. Cassette's running time i short, the noise attack has complete the ear mayhem after 6:20", the first song is a little slower as a kind of intro to the upcoming sonic inferno. The rest  three tracks are a hell of noise.and deliver the goods. There's nothing to complain here, the distorted guitar sound, the echo-ed vocals, the bass lines and pummeling D-beat drumming, all create an aggressive and solid piece of raw punk. This stands equal to some well known names. Total Noise War came out in 50 copies on randomly coloured cassettes and is available in bandcamp


Methcharge-st tape

Relentless and chaotic raw noise punk from Richmond, Virginia, United States. This is Methcharge's st tape and brings nearly twelve minutes of noise not music, loud and cacophonous, primitive and ugly as can get. The sound is filthy and raw and production techniques is some kind of luxury and can't be found here. This is more or less a eardrum destroyer. The cassette comes with lyrics in the inlay. The band seems to be active since they recently played in several gigs in their local scene. Available in bandcamp. Said enuff.



Visions of Dystopia-st demo 2014

A few years ago i posted the demo of a band named Visions of Dystopia when someone contributed their demo tracks, link here, the band seemed already defunt and the demo was from 2009 or 2010 or so, A few years later and in 2014 Visions of Dystopia formed again and recorded seven songs incl. two old tracks and unleashed it in bandcamp. The new recording is in the same pathway of fast D-beat crust as their old demo but with much more brutality and better sound quality. The band seems to be inactive again since their farcebook isn't updated for a long time and i didn't find any physical format of demo. even the artwork they used is a picture from they had used for the first demo., looks like there is digital format only  for this.


Vägra-8 tracks demo tape, 2016

Another obscure band with name in Swedish and no any site on internet: Vägra (to refuse, to deny, to withold in Swedish) is a raw punk trio, they come from Gainesville, Florida,United States and this is their debut demo titled 8 tracks demonstration 2016. Just like the band of previous post, there's no any information on the web about them. The demo consists of eight tracks of D-beat raw punk with guitars full of delay and distortion and vocals in reverb. This (probably) came out as cassette and is available only via the band. This is primitive and raw, aggressive and chaotic, having all the elements the subegenre needs to deliver some good noise. You can stream the demo in bandcamp or contact the band for a physical copy, there's not any informaion about date of release, bandcamp says "April 20, 1969"!!!. No need to rant anyore. go listen it.


Apärä-st demo 2015

Time for some outstanding raw punk noise: Apärä (bastard in finnish, not to be confused with the band Apärät) come from the city of Mexico and this is their four track tape, recorded and released in Octomber 2015 by Doomsday Records. I don't know anything about Apärä,the demo is poasted in a couple mexcan punks blogs but not any ifo about the band. Anyway, this must be their first demo and is a blast of noise, chaotic and raging, ear tormenting D-Beat raw punk full of reverb and distortion at its finest. I don't need to put here the list of usual bands they sound alike. The demo lasts nearly nine minutes and its available in bandcamp along with Doomday's other releases, the label probably has physical copies of demo. Lyrics are in spanish and are available in bandcamp as well. Doomsday Records started back in 2010 and they have a shitload or releases under their belt, (there's some great stuff there.). I said enough, this is so fuckin good and deserves some attention, give it a listening and enjoy the noise.

Available in bandcamp, along with dnld link of ep, lyrics, etc etc



Threskiornis-All Empires Fall

Now prepare for something obscure and unexpectedly good: Threskiornis hail from Sydney and Melbourne, Australia they formed in 2015  they are a five piece band with dual vocals and cello in their crust noize, i didn't find any farcebook page or anything else thats why the obsure thing. All Empires Fall is their first recording, it consists of six tracks and it delivers melodic, dark and melancholic crust, accompinied by the cello parts and with a hint of blackened feeling. The dual vocals make the whole thing more interesting, lyrics are dark and pessimistic too, there are melodic and emotional parts, typically fast crust parts with D-beat driving force in drumming. This is the crust known from bands such Aus Spotten, Oroku and Recreant. This is good, more than expected. Available in bandcamp. There is another band from Sydney named Bædan, playing the same crust and i think they share members.


Exulansis-Demo MMXVI tape 2016

Exulansis is a trio from Oregon and Demo MMXVI is their four track cassette, self-released in 2016 in 100 copies. music wise they deliver Blackened Doom Crust, heavy, slow and emotional with deep low throaty vocals and with fast grinding outbreaks, they are inspired by bands such as His Hero is Gone, Clinging to the Trees of a Forest Fire, Thou, Neurosis, Exhausted Prayer and Burials. The band has sent some details about the songs: Track 1:Chaos Reigns, deals with human blind destruction and assumed dominance over nature and perceived reality. Sound clip from Lars vin Trier's film "Antichrist". Track 2: Uhtceare, is more metaphorically cryptic and personal, dealing with over coming crippling anxiety, paranoia, delusions, and magick. Track 3: Stain on Silence, is a pessimistic outlook on political debates and discussion and favor on action. The title comes from a quote from Sanuel Beckett "Every word is like an unnecessary stain on silence and nothingness. Track 4: Sentience, is an introspective look at overcoming addiction and gaining strength within.The songs are lenghty, Uhtceare and Sentence last over eight minutes each and the demo's running time is over 25 minutes. The cassette is sold out and was for sale only in person, not mail involved hee, The demo is available in bandcamp


Dooie Mus-st demo

Dooie Mus is a 2-piece screamo/emo band from Haarlem (The Netherlands). Dooie Mus litarly means Dead Sparrow in Dutch. It's used in the expresion ‘iemand blij maken met een dooie mus’ (making somebody happy with a dead sparrow) which means making somebody happy with something that turns about to be very disappointing. The band formed in 2016 and started recorded their first demo during the summer, using 2 mics and a computer. I m not in to such kind of music and i can't say its lie this or like that. Some reviews i found say this is for fans of Old Gray, The Pine, Cason Welles, Two Humans, Two Knights, i don't know anything about these bands though, The demo is available in bandcamp

Devious Instinct/Slaktgrav-Neverending War split cdr

This is a split cdr with two bands coming from Greece, Devious Instinct is one man band from Thessaloniki, formed by a guy who also plays/played in Thrinos Aenaos and Noireblood and deliver four tracks of black metallic punk n roll in the vein of Tiger Junkies, Carpathian Forset, Aura Noir, Satyricon and the likes, There are acid shrieking vocals, D-beat drums, some great ideas in guitar work and the sound quality is decent, the lack of this shitty reverb in drum sound would make things excellent but even the way the whole thing came out is worth enough to respect it. Birthtumor is my fav track here. Slaktgrav is the transformation of mincecore freaks Slaughtergrave into a D-beat band, they formed in 2012 and they have several releases under their belt (check here), they appeared in this blog for the Freedom Punker 4 way split, many moons ago. Here they contribute four tracks taken from older recordings and deliver Swedish D-beat hardcore, song titles and lyrics are in Swedish. The split came out as cdr in thin plastic case with great arwork from Jef (Unfit Scum, Helvetin Viemarit) in 50 copies (i think) by  Deathforce Records and nearly twenty minutes total running time.  Give it a listening in youtube

Wildspeaker//Cara Neir-Guilt and His Reflection split tape

Here's a split cassette with two bands coming from Texas, US. Wildspeaker is not new in this blog since their previous works have been postet here, They are a female fronted blackened crust band, deeply in to DIY ethic, Cara Neir come from Texas too, they are a duet and have a shitload of releases under their belt. what they deliver can described as post-black metallic neo-crust or something like that. their sound is unique and interesting. Guilt and His Reflection" has been released on Broken Limbs Recordings as cassette, . According to Natalie from Wildspeaker "The split details the decay of humanity crumbling into itself. This partnership exposes the story of post-civilization sins committed when overwhelmed by desperation". "Guilt and His Reflection is a conceptual full length split between Wildspeaker and Cara Neir. The split details the decay of humanity crumbling into itself. This partnership exposes the story of post-civilization sins committed when desperation overwhelm". "The concept and work behind this split is a little more unconventional than our usual split releases, being that it's a concept fully realized through both bands. Given the runtime and conceptual tie-in, the total package is more like a split full length of Cara Neir & Wildspeaker. The concept itself revolves around cannibalism in a post-apocalyptic scenario; it's not necessarily in a graphic shock value way, but more about the psychological effects of a subject in dire circumstances. He not only resorts and succumbs to it, but experiences a duality of embracing it for survival, yet detesting himself and the world he lives in." - Garry Brents of Cara Neir, (taken from Broken Limb Recordings site)
