Volcanic Slut - Blasphemaster EP

1. Euphoria
2. Blasphemaster
3. Lunar Activities

This is some evil noise that is made up of one part thrash and another part black metal.
Three bangin' songs from members of Nazi Dust and Divisions.
Highly recommended if you like heavy thrash riffs.

Sabertooth Zombie - Human Performance II

So in great anticipation of the third Human Performance (on Twelve Gauge Records) I have been jamming number I and II, and then realized that I hadn't even posted this on here yet.
This record takes off where the first 7" left you, and it will make you bang your head and grin like a creep.
On this S.T.Z. deliver another two tracks of psychedelic rock thrash jams with punk and hardcore all in the same mixing bowl. As with the first, the second H.P. also has longer track durations - clocking in just under 15minutes.
I was lucky enough to catch them jamming and recording their new material at Panda studios via stream, and I can vouch that the new stuff is out of this world good.
For the mean time I suggest that you play this on repeat and with a high volume.

Purple Mercy - Private Pleasures

1. Purple Mercy
2. Slow Cloud
3. 1:34
4. Off The Pigs
5. Ace Of Space
6. Spider
7. Bring In The New Ear
8. Private Pleasures
9. Devil's Hand Flower

Here I present the new album by California's Purple Mercy - Private Pleasures.
This follows up their debut self titled LP which is a dramatically different listening experience.
The first album was more filled with distortion guitars and pissed dirty vocals, and I liked that a lot.
But I like this just as much, I'd say their sound on this album is 70's psychedelic drone rock.
I'm pretty sure that Twelve Gauge Records (tgrex) will be putting this to vinyl, so look out for it if you are interested in a physical copy of this.
Which you should be.

3. Bottom Feeder
4. Indentured
5. Leash
6. Purebred
7. Thoughtless
8. Serve
9. Desolation
10. Hunger

20. Architecture

The new LP from Boston's Scapegoat.
Note: This is a new download link for the better scene rip, no longer the vinyl rip. No more end of track cuts that will annoy the ears, or any vinyl crackles for that matter.
They sound like a mix between crossed out and at times like neanderthal.

Cabin Fever - Demo + Live Set

1. Can't Breathe
2. Atrophy Of The Life
3. Pure Hate (Poison Idea)
4. Live Set At Midian

Cabin Fever are a three piece punk band from Melbourne, Australia with guy/girl duel vocals.
They list their influences as Poison Idea, Negative Approach, Black Flag, Germs, Articles of Faith and Zero Boys.
On this demo they deliver two tracks of their own, and a cover of a Poison Idea song.
I've also thrown in a recording of a live set I found just for good measure which features some pretty fucking cool covers.

B-Lines - B-Lines

1. Hasting Strut
2. Wealthy Barber
3. It Rains
4. Psychedelic High School
5. Sunglasses
6. In The Red
7. World War Four
8. Houseplants
9. Tonite

Hello ladies and germs, here is the new LP from Vancouver's B-lines.
Nine tracks of manic/catchy punk that lasts a mere 11 minutes.
The two stand out tracks on this for me are "Psychedelic High School" and "Houseplants" but only by fractions.
This is the sort of album that you can play 3-5 times in a row, because it goes by so god-damn quickly.
That said, this is a thoroughly enjoyable listen that's for sure.
Physical copies of this LP are available from Deranged Records, who have been putting out so many good things lately.

Haven't been able to post lately due to computer problems, so to make up for it I have this.

Reproach came out in '98, and the cover says it all.
Eight bands covering songs by the great Negative Approach.
This is a vinyl rip so expect some crackles.
Real enjoyable.
