Over 35 years of heavy metal! Champagne! As contenders to the throne of Japanese metal kings, Anthem proved their competence and longevity, but did not push Loudness aside. Their sound is somewhere between Loudness and Earthshaker, i.e. less incisive and potent than Loudness, with a more radio-friendly approach. There is amazing consistency in this discography and it is difficult to point out a much higher or much lower title. I would recommend No Smoke Without Fire, Domestic Booty or Hunting Time to get a first impression, or the two most recent albums with bigger production, but a less raw metal attack. From speed metal to traditional hard rock, always loaded with killer riffs, amazing solos and unbreakable rhythmic assaults, Anthem rocks til you drop! Heavy metalizer forever triplazer!
A FLAC download link of the Trimetallic release would be very welcome.

Agent Orange

Agent Orange - Living In Darkness - 1981 01. Agent Orange - Living In Darkness, 1981 CD Album Reissue
     Posh Boy - R2 71092
     Reissue from 1992 - 12-15: Symbol Six EP
Punk rocks! Fans of Adolescents and T.S.O.L. must love Agent Orange while the expectations of clueless Sodom fans are not met (at all). This classic revives many ancient memories, and still deliver the goods after all these years because sweet, relaxing surf punk is the guilty pleasure that never fades away.

The Grim

The Grim - Getting Revenge In 'Merica - 1984
The Grim - Face Of Betrayal - 1988
01. The Grim - Getting Revenge In 'Merica, 1984 Vinyl 12" 33 ⅓ RPM Mini-Album
     Mystic Records - MLP MINI-01
02. The Grim - Face Of Betrayal, 1988 Vinyl LP Album
     Alchemy Records, Alchemy Records - CHEM 107, 06-07226
I bought the 2nd album because it was released by the almighty Alchemy Records, whose invincible legacy of Sacrilege BC, Clown Alley, Neurosis, Melvins et al. made subsequent releases mandatory blind buys. Face of Betrayal was indeed another success in the cold crossover department - heavy, dark, catchy with slowed-down Excel or C.O.C.'s Technocracy overtones and without losing that punk edge. Then I tracked down the first LP and was surprised by the rough punk style and sound of a Circle Jerks | Jerry's Kids hybrid. It is a minor US HC classic! And generally speaking, the Grim satisfies fans of Sacred Denial. Old school HC punk crossozer!!!

Execration - Return To The Void

Execration - Return To The Void - 2017 01. Execration - Return To The Void, 2017 CD Album
     Metal Blade Records - 3984-15494-2
I knew it, I forgot an entry in the previous novelty post. Pierced neuron and all that. So here comes the 4th Execration album, another dark diamond of metal. This Void continues on the path of almost progressive metal (read: non-linear and moods shifting, without a sacrifice to undue complexity) set on the previous masterpiece. This release is about matured music and master riffing, and it is another success for these Norwegians. If you enjoyed Morbid Dimensions or Morbus Chron, do not miss it. Triplazering advance of the killer death and thrash mindbanging!

Hot new stuff and hot old stuff! Since yesterday was the 100th celebration of the bolshevik revolution, the timing is relevant to post that Stalinism compilation (whose content is also on the Sakhalin Smile bootleg). Japanese punk always rules! Same thing about that G.I.S.M. 2015 compilation of remastered classics except for the bolshevik part- musically nothing new, only classic stuff with a louder sound level. Better than the originals? Not sure. Now let's consume this Final Bombs EP that is maybe a little less exciting, less energetic than the two albums - still excellent post-82-Discharge worship.
Then for the new stuff, not one but two Ningen Isu releases - the killer new studio album and an incredible double live (did not rip the DVD to audio as the songs are all on the CDs). This band is just more perfect every year, loud rock fans and Melvins must obey. And last but not least, the beast of terraforming doom is back With The Dead: as heavy as and crushing as the first one, maybe more - exemplary gravitational condensation of the largest skeletons!
