What can be said,this is a blog where I will post some stuff I really like,so I think you should like it too.I am a metalhead to the heart,but I will put here every kind of stuff I like,not only Metal.I hope you will enjoy it,and let me know if there is anything needed,especially from the ex-Yugoslavia territory.
I know that some of you will say "WTF?What are Bijelo Dugme doing here??"..Well yes,Bijelo Dugme was the biggest band ever in the ex-YU (and in most ex-communist countries too!!),Rock music in Yugoslavia is unimaginable without them,seemed like Rock in Yugoslavia "began" with them..Bijelo Dugme was a band that could easily stand shoulder to shoulder with ie. Uriah Heep.This one is their first album,pure Hard Rock (if you ask me) very comparable to Uriah Heep.I really loved them (and I still do) , also because they remind me of times that are gone forever.For the classic Hard Rock lovers!!
Tracks; 01.Kad bi bio bijelo dugme 02.Blues za moju bivsu dragu 03.Ne spavaj mala moja muzika dok svira 04.Sve cu da ti dam samo da zaigram 05.Selma 06.Patim evo deset dana
Another Hard Rock band from Pula,active in the 80`s.They lasted few years,and have been the strongest Hard Rock band around 1985-1987,had just few recordings-more of the rehearsal-recording type.This is one of those few,a good soundboard recording,and again,a recording for the HardRock/Heavy Metal made in YU collectors.The memberson this recording were;Dino and Boro (today both in Powerslave,an Iron Maiden cover band) , Bazda (lost in Holland) , Chriss (reggae DJ) and Davor (committed suicide 7-8 years ago).
Tracks; 01.Dobre vile 02.Tijelo zene 03.Bilo koji pravac (fuckup) 04.Bilo koji pravac
No pic,no anything from this band.These are two (actually one and a half) tracks I found on one tape I got 18 years ago with few Serbian bands.There was just the name of this band and the release date,but all there was were those tracks,so here it is for you.Singed in serbian and played very professionally,if you are a collector,try this very rare one!
This is one of the greatest debut albums in Thrash Metal,coming from the ex-Anthrax and S.O.D. (Ok,later Brutal Truth,Crucifist,and a ton of other bands..) member Danny Lilker.This album is truly a masterpiece in every single second.I never found any further N.A. album being so exciting as this one.Plus,this one contains one of the most intense track ever,Hang The Pope.Again,a must.
Tracks; 01.Live,suffer,die 02.Sin
03.Cold steel 04.Betrayal 05.Radiation sickness 06.Hang the pope 07.After the holocaust 08.Mr. Softee theme 09.Stranded in hell 10.Nuclear war 11.My america 12.Vengeance 13.Brain death
This one was,for my opinion,the most underrated supergroup of the second half of the 80s.Formed by the first Metallica bassist Ron McGovney (I hope he never knew what a part of his second name means in the Yugoslavian languages!!) in 1983,the band in 1987 was joined by Katon W. DePena from Hirax and Gene Hoglan from most of the metal bands in the world.They recorded this extremely good demo Wreckage,a total must for all Thrash fans,and this release contains also a great live recording from one of the bands live performance.You gotta have this one!
Tracks; 01.Prey for power 02.Blown to oblivion 03.Glue 04.The blind leading the blind 05.Dachau 06.Depression Live,Phoenix,AZ,Oddfellows Hall,1987 07.Pray for power 08.Blown to oblivion 09.Future victims 10.Depression 11.Bacteriaside 12.Glue 13.The blind leading the blind 14.Dachau 15.Lucide
Ok,I think you understood finally that you will find everything here,not only Metal and Punk/HC.And so,here we have a first mini lp from a Belgrade-based band,one of the first of the Yugoslavian New Wave invasion at the beginning of the 80s.If I am not wrong,the promo show for this mini lp,along with FILM,was the first "real" concert I have seen (I was 12,right?).So this thing is a little emotionally nostalgic too.I will post a lot of records from that periods,maybe some of you will be interested in the history of Yugoslavian new wave music from the beginning of the 80s.Now about the record.First of all,in this posting,under the name of the VIS Idoli`s first mini-lp (actually,it was a maxi-single,I still have the vinyl!!),here you have included also their very first single,and it is here as the first two songs.The music here is a melodic,and a bit artistic New Wave.I cannot compare them to any band,but if you like something melodic..there you go..
Tracks; 01.Maljciki 02.Retko te vidjam sa devojkama 03.Ime da da 04.Zasto su danas devojke ljute 05.Devojko mala 06.Dok dobuje kisa (u ritmu tam-tama) 07.Malena 08.Hajde
This one`s a demo from a very interesting Death Metal band from Croatia (Zagreb,I guess) ,which recorded only this demo in 2003 and then stopped.On their official site you can read that the recording of the album is on and going pretty slow..too bad it is written in 2005.Seems like we`ll never see that album,so enjoy this excellent demo tape.
Tracks; 01.From the depths 02.For the flight the soul was made 03.Appeal to nihilism
Again, a live recording (this time a little bit poorer) from the best Death Metal band ever.The stuff you can find here is from the Reek Of Putrefaction lp, and that means the first most insane phase of the band.For all the diehard fans! And waiting me to convert the live recording of the gig from Pula 1992...
Here is a demo of an unknown Italian band called Desmodus.What you have here is an excellent recording of a very good Thrash Metal band.Unfortunately,I have not one word about this band,that brings me to the conclusion that this was a one-demo band.Still,worth downloading!
Tracks; 01.Domination 02.Human wreck 03.See the light 04.Everything is dying
You had the opportunity to listen to Anti Otpad in few previous posts,well,this is their first official cassette-album,released by Slusaj Najglasnije Records.The stuff is cool and well known HC/Punk,recorded in a semi-professional studio (the legendary EAR Studio in Stinjan near Pula,the studio responsible for 80% of the recordings from Pula bands in the 90`s),and the last official recording of the first line-up.For HC/Punk fans!!
Tracks; 01.Animals 02.Gorki je div 03.Die of frustration 04.Norman is a whore 05.Loser of the 50 dinars 06.Say yes to drugs 07. 08.Intro + Fuck YU system 09.Vodka 10.Whiskey Johnny 11.Kiss my ass,kiss my ice,kiss my eyes,kiss my eye 12.Money 13.Zivot je sranje 14.Headache 15.Capitalist 16.Freedom 17.I hopeless hope 18.I hate people 19.Forza per sopravivere 20.The final song 21.Chance-Medley
Have you ever heard about this band?Well they are from Brazil and...wait,if you don`t know Sepultura,then..uhmm..does Metal sounds anything to you??Here`s an early-Sepultura gig,a very loud soundboard recording,but still a cool one for collectors.Enjoy,of course..
Tracks; 01.Morbid visions 02.Bestial devastation 03-04.Empire of the damned+ Mayhem 05.Troops of doom 06-07.Antichrist+ Show me the wrath 08.Necromancer
Here we go with another Croatian Metal band,from Split,a very talented one,but not a long lasting one.All they left is this demo and an album entitled World Of Nothingness.A very melodic Death Metal with slight Black Metal influences.The material here is a great studio production,and the live track sounds perfectly.So,for all the Croatian/ex-Yu Metal scene fans,this one is a demo you have to have in your collection.
Tracks; 01.Life eternal 02.Awakening 03.In the sunset 04.Enslave the astral fortress (Naglfar cover) 05.Rebirth (the second coming) 06.World of nothingness (live Split 1999)
Have you ever listened to the best punk/HC compilation ever,and by this I mean,of course, "This Is Boston,Not L.A."?You didn`t?OK,that compilation is on plan for upload,but meanwhile taste this compilation,which is as good as the mentioned one,with bands that are all part of the mentioned one.This single is in fact a kind of "enlargement" of T.I.B,N.L.A.All the tracks are really exciting,full energy punk/HC,and the compilation cannot start better than with the (at the time) ultrafast GANG GREEN.This one is obligatory,believe me.
