Fear Gave Us Wings, 2004
Mourning the Unknown, 2007
The Great Northern Revisited (7" eps + split w/Bruce Banner + 4 unreleased), 2010
Blood fire death!!! Featuring meat from VICTIMS, GENERAL SURGERY and NASUM, here comes one awesome grindcore bulldozing supersonic tank. From "regular" grinding crust of first quality on the first album, they upgggrade (with three Gs for a triple dose of their grinding) on the following album and the Northern compilation to MAXIMUM speed and head sledgehammering as in Rotten Sound | Blockheads | Brutal Truth - with a satisfying amount of "melodies" and catchy parts that make it all not just a blur of radioactive wind. Amazing!

In The Garden Of Serpent, 1996
Autumn Ride, 1997
Do you like Black Sabbath? Stupid question. Do you like St-Vitus and Goatsnake? Zer, click Serpent! Featuring ex meat of the almighty Carbonized, this is excellent traditional mid-tempo doom metal with stoner leaves (not to be mistaken for stoner rock with metal riffs). The bass sounds rips! The groove machine is on. All you need is love.

Today's magic phrase is: shit, I love it when a maniac German hardcore band sounds like a mix of Siege and Hellnation at the speed of Heresy bordering on war field black metal.

Happy Night Electric Experience (+ 1st 7" + comp tracks), 2000/2001
Sem Remorso, 2003
split LP w/I shot Cyrus, 2005
Musica Pra Guerra (+ split w/H-Zero), 2009
Featuring the current bass player from Ratos De Porao, Discarga is easily in my top 5, no, top 3 of the hardcore bands to have surfaced during the past decade (hardcore as in hardcore, not vegan metal). Discarga sound like the hyperactive bastard heir of Indigesti and Heresy, they deploy in your general direction some FAST and tight and memorable thrashing assault with the longest song clocking in at 1:44. There are also some brilliant slower and punker songs for the sake of breathing but it's soon back into the supersonic chamber. 80 totally awesome tracks of accelerated 80s madness from the 21st century!

Dead Head

The Feast Begins At Dawn, 1991
Dream Deceiver, 1993
Kill Division (+ 9 live tracks), 1999
Haatland, 2005
Depression Tank, 2009
Dead Head are in the business of pulverizing all your bones from the head down, absolute zer! Here is some of the most ripping thrash metal ever released! I can only think of Slayer, Kreator, Sadus and Morgoth locked up for a week in a room with the fiercest of Raw Power blasted at 11. On top of that the 9 bonus live tracks on Kill Division show how incredible this band really is.
Favorites: the last three albums for the renewed non-stop savagery that exceeds that of many grindcore releases. The Feast is also an excellent debut, fast and raw with a hammer-touch of the amazing Entrance album by A.R.G., while Dream Deceiver is more complex, darker and with many heavy slow sections. A lesson in violent thrashing ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!R!R! !R!R!RR !R! R! R! !RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! R! !R !R !R !R! R RR!R !R !R! RR! R!! R R! !R! R !R !RR R !R !R! R! RRRRR !R! R! R!! !R !RR!R! ! ! ! !

Cockeye (Silverfish 12" ep + Total Fucking Asshole 12" ep), 1989
Fat Axl, 1990
Fuckin' Drivin' Or What ep, 1991
Organ Fan, 1992
Nerve-eating noise rock! There is a lot of fuzz and heaviness and groove and energy and and a great singer that probably had an influence on Karyn from Crisis and she sings in French about her mother and sister on "Déchaînée" (Organ Fan), which is very sexy. You could obviously mention the less friendly era of Sonic Youth as an influence: Silverfish is like having your eardrums processed with fresh sandpaper by NoMeansNo and the Melvins on a foggy day in Detroit. Fuckin' great or what! My favorite is the very abrasive Fat Axl MONSTER DISTORTIONNIZERRRRRR!R!RR! !RR! R!R !R!R !R!R R! R !R !

Dead Brain Cells, 1987
Universe + Dead Brain Cells, 1989
Unreleased, 1991/2002
Montreal's best answer to Slayer! Amazing 80s speed & thrash metal! Unreleased is a great mix of the style of the two earlier albums, maybe not as intense or inspired. The second release has a more technical / Voïvod edge, while Dead Brain Cells is the prototype of classic skull bashing thrash metal. Two totally killer classic records!!!! People of the 80s awake and bang your head until you're all brain dead!

Speaking of the 80s, we just spent a week-end in 1985. Thanks to the iron longevity of the heavy metal scene, we just had the infinite privilege to attend a Vulcain show!!! ROCK'N'ROLL SECOURS!!!! 30 ans plus tard, Vulcain sont toujours les plus forts! Ne pas aller voir un concert de Vulcain est une faiblesse impardonnable. Grand moment de nostalgie pour les plus arthritiques d'entre nous (la dernière fois que je les ai vus, c'était en 86 près de Dijon et c'est pendant le voyage en voiture que Roger est né!)! Meilleur show hard rock depuis Exciter (Beehler) l'an dernier! TOP MEGA ZERRRRRRRR!R!R!R!R!R !R!R! R! R! R! !R! R! R! !R !R !! ! VULCAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rock'n'roll secours!

Arrête de penser à l'amûr!

And yesterday we got to watch... CELTIC FROST!!! Yo, Triptykon actually, but close your eyes and just submit to Procreation Of The Wicked and Dethroned Emperor and it's all 1985 again - not to undermine Triptykon's own material which is as excruciatingly doom and deadly as anything else on this planet and the bass player is more fun to watch than Martin Ain (somebody pass me a frog) - actually this was the best and most intense DOOM show I've seen in years. Pure gravity and death!!! The speed of darkness!!!



And a special batch of thanks to the crowd at both shows. You could have taken a series of photos to print in the October '85 issue of Metal Hammer along the Anthrax/Overkill/Agent Steel tour report.

Forest Of Impaled

Mortis Dei, 1995
Demonvoid, 1999
Forward The Spears, 2003
Rise And Conquer, 2007
Impaled heads, satanic orgies and black plague on the war field! Let's go for an intense black death metal ride. Mortis Dei is a short, bombastic, memorable and neck breaking black metal offering like a Dark Funeral demo. Lots of class in the darkness, zer. On Demonvoid the death metal grows a bit, good album, yet things get really terrific on the last two albums that are as deadly as a mix of early Dark Funeral and Immolation at full speed with the spirit of Slayer, fuck yeah! Fantastic no-bullshit songs full of merciless blasts and skull krushing riffs, amazing execution, killer production, these two gems rarely leave the top 10 of black death monstrosities I like to submit myself to. Death is certain, life is not! 666 TONS OF DEADLY ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!R!R!R !R!R!R!RRR R!RR! !R!RR!RRRRRRRRRRRRRRR !R!R!RR!R RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR !R! !RR! !R!RRRRRRRRRR !R! !R !RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR !RR! !RR!R! !R! !RR!

More Deride, yet not a real reload since this time the LP mp3 separation is now correct (I hope! last year the frontier between songs 1 and 2 was wrong, and another song was not separated at all) and a bit louder.

By Inheritance (+ 6 bonus), 1990
Deadly Relics (4 demos, but not the first one from 1982), 1998
B.A.C.K. (+ 2 bonus), 1999
When Death Comes, 2009
One Foot In The Grave, The Other One In The Trash (Euro version w/2 bonus), 2009
SPEED THRASH METAL HEAVEN!!!! It doesn't get really any better than Artillery when you need your metal to be simultaneously fast, technical, heavy, melodic, catchy, crunchy and super powered! Think of the (very very) best of Megadeth (but with real, powerful vocals) and Forbidden and add some truly unique and unforgettable choruses and you're not there yet. Artillery sit with the best of the 80s - yet their two come backs in 1999 and 2009 are also absolutely AMAZING! One often fears the return of an old band, but these guys now just rip twice more than 20 years ago. Bring out the air guitars!!!
