Resisting Success, 1987 (vinyl rip)
Resisting Success, 1987 (CD rip with bonus)
If At First You Don't Succeed, 1988
Live On Location, 1991
Exist To Resist, 1995
$avior$elf, 1999
The Downside, 2000
DamNation, 2001
Everybody loved and cried at the excellent Anvil rockumentary. Still, should we be that sorry about Anvil's relative lack of success while other heavy metal bands at least as talented like the legendary Raven and the beasts of Hades didn't even reach half of Anvil's success? A recurrent theme in Hades' album titles... Like Raven and Anvil, Hades started in the 70s (1978 I think) and have made some of the best heavy metal ever. My first encounter of the second type with Hades was through the classic Metal Massacre VI compilation, but they didn't really stand out. You do have to get up early and outdo your best to rival the emergence of Dark Angel, Nasty Savage, Possessed, Hallow's Eve or Hirax on the same record... But years later they released Resisting Success and this time it was a total sonic success, fuck yeah! Best heavy metal since Forged in Fire and All For One! Resisting Success made me sell back my post-fistful Anthrax, Trance, Loudness and Armored Saints records, didn't need that stuff anymore when I could listen to Hades! Resisting Success and If At First You Don't Succeed sit at the very top of Speed Metal Mountain thanks to the power and speed reminding of Exciter and Agent Steel, the heaviness of Nasty Savage, the catchy technicality of Iron Priest and Watchtower and simply some world class crazy killer metal songs. The live album is awesome, Exist To Resist has wider and richer influences while the last two albums are a bit heavier and crunchier. My least favorite is $avior$elf, still an excellent piece of metal. Lots of variations, super strong melodies, top notch musicianship, no filler songs, what else do you want? Even the few songs that could be tagged as ballads are super great. And these guys knew how to mix a bass guitar, which was an original thing in metal (and too often still is...). Mandatory metal masterpiece! LEGEND OF CLASSIC HEAVY METAL ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRR !R! R! RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR !R! !R !RRRR !R !R! RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR !R! R! R! !RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR !R R! !R ! ! ! ! ! !!

Addicted to death! The 20 years old Danish tank just released the new amazing death rock album There Is Light, bang that head! As you remember, the early material is crushing crusty ultra groovy death metal reminding of Massacre | Autopsy | 90s Sepultura, culminating in the monster awesome Submit. Then from the enormous Something Rotten on, they evolved into melodic death-hard-rock (yes) without loosing on the big fat heaviness, in a late Carcass way. Great awesome discography !!

The 1982/1984 stuff is very UK punk sounding, while Australia, Australia is an amazing metalli-vitaminic complement to your Broken Bones | Permanent Damage collection. Thrash Til Death is still the awesome raw metal attack with massive early Accüsed input | late Attitude Adjustment input.

Deathbound features ex Rotten Sound employees and Deathbound sounds very much like Rotten Sound. When you need to be possessed by sonic drones and just completed a full rotation of the Rotten Sound catalog, this is what you need. Zero originality, total linearity, happiness.

Christmas in May : new Artillery + new Rotten Sound

Artillery - My Blood, 2011 (digi edition w/2 bonus)
Rotten Sound - Cursed, 2011
The postman is one of my favorite human beings, look what he brought me today. The Danish kings of thrash metal return with My Blood, great follow-up to the 2009 super powered When Death Comes. I still have to listen to it a couple dozen times more to have a real opinion. My Blood sounds excellent, and even if it does not seem to match When Death Comes, it provokes a great amount of headbanging and air guitar. Fist in the air!!
Now Rotten Sound's Cursed... Holy shit. Only 2 spins confirm it's nothing less than a grinding MONSTER full of merciless crust and sludge. I think I already like it more than Cycles. Fuck yeah! It's mean, it's fast, it's dark, it's a murder, it's awesome, it's Christmas.
CD rip.

Buy My Blood and all Artillery masterpieces
Buy Cursed and more Rotten Sound bulldozers

All Artillery
All Rotten Sound
Too old, too cold ? Aaaah kids today... and their modern garbage with so many atrocious sections - the "emo" parts scream SHOOT ME IN THE KNEE, SHOOT ME IN THE KNEE!! Get the barf bag ready:

Nice makeup, but the vocalist ought to schedule an appointment with the nearest veterinarian. Listen to Artillery and Rotten Sound and learn the usage of a throat without the disgraceful vomit inducing auto-tune.
Ah shit.

But yes! Only 3 more weeks before the official return of the kings:

Fudge Tunnel

Hate Songs In E Minor, 1991
Fudgecake (The Fudge Tunnel 7" + The Sweet Sound Of Excess 12"), 1989/1990 (1992 reissue)
Teeth mcd, 1992
Creep Diets, 1992
The Complicated Futility of Ignorance, 1994
In A Word, 1994
Fudge Tunnel had the great idea to surface at a time when I was spending my days rotating between the Rollins Band, the Melvins and Distortion X. Louder than loud abrasive sludge rock to make your spinal chord crack, that was the idea - never too heavy! Discovering the Sweet Sound of Excess and Hate Songs In E Minor was then a major win. At least something really heavy to pursue the sonic tasks of Big Black and their peers, which to me always lacked something menacing in their sound. I don't know which record is my favorite here, but it's not Creep Diets, the only FT release I find dull and flacid. The rest is golden crushing rocking tar by the mighty distorted decibel!
Then FT split up and there was Nailbomb, a FT | Sepultura joint venture of the S.O.D. | Ministry sort (not to be published here because I didn't dig it and sold the cds years ago). FUDGE ALL TUNNELS ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR R R rRr R r r R rr r rR RrR r r r R! !R !R ! !R!R!R R !R !! !!RR!R !! ! ! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
CD rip.

Fudgecake compiles:
Tracks 1-4: originally released as The Fudge Tunnel EP 7" (PIG2) recorded at Frontier Studios, Nottingham.
Tracks 5-8: originally released as The Sweet Sound Of Excess 12" (12PIG4) recorded at Frontier Studios, Nottingham.

In A Word compiles:
Tracks 1-3 were recorded for John Peel's radio show in 1990.
Track 4 was recorded as part of the 'Sweet Sound Of Excess' session.
Track 5-6 were recorded live in New York in 1993 in front of about 300 Americans who didn't pay to get in.
Tracks 7-10 were recorded for Peel in 1992.
Tracks 11-13 were recorded at the Dynamo Fest in Holland in front of 36,000 people. We shit our pants but had a fun day.

In 1991, my good old friend Yves and I attended a Fudge Tunnel show in Germany: as of today, this is still one of the loudest and heaviest live experience I enjoyed, only topped (skull-fracturing-decibel-wise) by Khanate in 2002 (Khanate in Quebec City RHAAAAAAHHHHHHRHHRHHRRRRRHGHHHH! ! ! ! ! ! !). It was an amazing show of legendary magnitude, we were floored so we both bought the same long-sleeve Fudge Tunnel shirts, and the week after we were wearing them when we were featured in that TV show:
