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.
This is the pre-album demo,done with the first Exodus vocalist,the one and only Paul Baloff,just before he was replaced by Steve "Zetro" Souza.As I started listening to Exodus with Paul and Bonded By Blood (one of the best Speed/Thrash albums ever!),every vocalist after him i.m.o. didn`t fit so well or changed the band pretty much.So,if you wondered how would sound the second album if Paul stayed in the band,there you go..PAUL BALOFF is the king. R.I.P. PS:This video is hilarious,Paul Baloff doing some crazy things..recommended.
Tracks: 01.Pleasures of the flesh 02.Seeds of hate 03.Brain dead
This one was supposed for tomorrow,but after listening to it again,I can`t wait until then!! This is an album I love in an extreme way,one of the rare vinyls I will NEVER trade or give for anything!Let me explain;it is nothing spectacular,at some points (actually,almost the complete record) is one foot into the ridicolous,but this is radical Speed Metal,very simple,naked to the bone,and as I said,almost ridicolous.But this is surely one of the top 10 Speed Metal records of all the time for me.The lyrics are some of the funniest and most demented I have ever read,and are OF COURSE about Satanism.I adore the drum sound here,especially the bass drums.This album is too good to be true,I warn you not to expect nothing spectacular,but if you are into true and primitive Speed Metal (notice;I never ever wrote Thrash Metal!!),Vectom are gods. PS;they recorded another album,but on that they sounded like a softened version of early Helloween,so fuck it,Speed Revolution kicks fuckin asses!!!

This is a cool band I got from Vladimir.Fojbon is a HC band from Pula,they existed just few years (as far as I know) but left a deep trace in the Pula scene.This is a recording from a rehearsal,they cleverly transformed it into their demo tape.The sound is pretty good,and the music is raw,ideal for noise lovers.
Tracks: 01.Pad u zaborav 02.Tko 03.Moja stvarnost 04.Sutrasnjica 05.Zivot 06.Rasta
Satan Panonski again.This time,his first (and only) full lenght vinyl album.The sound is more cleaner and thinner,but the anger and the lunacy/geniality is the same.The pic you see is on the cover of the album,pretty scary but usual if talking about SP.Anyway,a great Punk Rock album,with all that SP`s charisma brings with.And an excellent vinyl-rip.

I am sorry that I don`t have a quality pic of the cover,but..anyway,I am presenting you this amazing bizarre band lead by the editor of the now defunct Chainsaw fanzine,vocalist and bass player Charlie Chainsaw.This is a unique band,and I have to tell you how I bumped into this band: Once (in 1989) I ordered some albums from a distro,and I had some little plus money,so I searched for a single or an EP to add.There were no interesting titles,except for this one "RANCID HELL SPAWN - FESTERING PUS ep".Now,you tell me,does it sounds to you like some Goregrind or at least Death Metal??Well,I added that EP.When arrived,everything was fine:a weird cover,strange titles..I put it on the turntable,and when it started first of all it wasn`t no Grind or Metal at all,nor even Hardcore..It was some Punk with keyboards,but what horrifies me was the sound!!I checked again the needle,the jacks of the speakers..everything was fine.But there was still some obnoxious noise.Then I realised:THE WHOLE RECORDING WAS UNDER A HEAVY DISTORTION!!It was sooooo great discovering that the band decided to do the complete record totally distorted!Just when I understood that the distortion is the main point of that record,I became very interested in those sickos. Here now,19 years after,I bring you here a whole album of this band entitled Jumpin` Jack Flesh,containing 24 short sharp cuts.Still the same-distorted,I highly recommend you this album,which will hook you the moment you get used to the extreme distortion of the recording. A great sick band,truly. PS;on a webpage dedicated to the band,for this album is written;
The first LP. This must have the tinniest sound of any record ever released. The cutting engineer thought the tape was fucked. It was not, it was meant to be that way. And apparently everyone at Mordam stopped work and rushed over to the record player saying "What the fuck is this?" the first time it was put on the record player. MRR described it as a "Vinyl Abomination" - and then went on to recommend it....

We already had here the Tormentor`s first demo Blitzkrieg,and now here is their second,just before they changed the name into Kreator.The tracks are almost all from the Endless pain album,but the quality of the recording is a bit scarce (even if this copy of Tormentor`s demo is absolutely the best in quality I have heard).You can notice how they made a huge progress from this demo to the album (well,more or less;have you heard the album version of Tormentor?Just after the solo,the drums fell out of rhythm for few beats,not much,but very noticeable).Anyway,listening more to this demo,you find out that it is not that bad in quality..Obligatory for every Thrash or Kreator fan.
Tracks; 01.Intro 02.Armies of hell 03.Tormentor 04.Cry war 05.Bone breaker
We already had G5 on this blog, featured with their first album. This one is a single (a perfect vinyl rip!) as a first release after their first album. Very nice and melodic Hard Rock on one side, and the usual Hard ballad on the flipside. The sound of this single reminds me how great is the vinyl sound, and how sterile is the cd sound. Nice one.
Of course,sooner or later the very first work of the masters had to find its way to this blog.A perfect recording here,no fear of some hushy sounding recording here.This demo is also featured on few compilations (it reminded me of a compilation of outtakes and rare recordings of Venom I have,I have to put it here soon),and it is a very dirty and Punky Venom,but people,it is 1980!The very beginnings of a band that will become so huge in the first part of the 80s..
Tracks: 01.Angel dust 02.Raise the dead 03.Red light fever
