Requested, rezerred. Hadn't posted this since 2008, in mp3, it was due for a good quality reload! So today we do not only have the classic 1987 split LP full of thrashcore of the nasty sort that fans of Cryptic Slaughter and Discharge will enjoy. We also have the 2 discography CDs that gather all known material (1986/1989) from both bands. The Boss Tuneage comp is an amazing and complete release, but the Desecration one is an excremental bootleg due to the fucking abuse of compression which leads to ridiculous saturation and volume changes. This is not listenable. Guys, listen to your shit before sending it to the pressing plant, please. Computers look like magic, but they're not, ooooh! Too bad because Desecration deserved better. Anyway, the best from Desecration is still on the split LP. Thrash til zer!
PS: yes, this is the same piano as on Poison Idea's 2006 Latest Will and Testament...

I am such a naive piece of meat. I thought that after the PMRC debacle of 1985, such ridiculous campaigns would not happen anymore, but yes, you still can find mammals in 2015 who have time to whine about heavy metal... now from within the "scene"... The metalgate... fuck me sideways. Hey metal zorros, go to your homeopath and calm down.

I don't know how true is the assertion that Michel Houellebecq is the most famous francophone author in the world. For those who care about his written production, I just finished his Goncourt-winning novel. I needed to check why he was awarded this prestigious prize, because the first three books I read from him were very dull in style and content. This one is a little less... useless, It is a text that opposes no resistance, it has the consistency of Schlagsahne, it slips down your neuron like a charm, It does not consume much time. That's the good part. Now for the down side, either I am still that smelly mammal that is unable to grasp the subtleties of our friends the artists, or this book really is another harmless spoonful of white cheese supposed to denounce the quietly vicious evils of desensitization and individualism in modern society - capitalism no good, where be happiness, and so on. Ooooooh man, what a powerful suppository. Literary prizes are as despicable and corrupted as music or cinema prizes. Maggots.

Not really a reload! NRAR. If you already have the CD rips from the Ludichrist/Scatterbrain post, don't waste bandwidth for these vinyl rips, the We Bite CDs are a totally faithful and much better version, having none of the multiple cracks & pops of the records and featuring one more song. Yes, these records crack because they are the leaders of the Eternal Zer Top Ten crossover department, therefore they were constantly played for years and more years. Yes, 1986 is the year of Reign In Blood and Darkness Descends, but it is also the year of Immaculate Deception. It was unbelievable, it still is. There is an immense mountain of boiling memories in both these time machines. Now the F.O.A.D. compilation is an outstanding release and its acquisition is very much recommended. Killer artwork and booklet, and 3 sides of material from demos and live recording. The demos do not match the zerness of the albums, but the live side is jaw-dropping. It is most of Immaculate Deception played almost faster, and rendered with a very good sound quality. Absolutely killer gigazer!! Enjoy with your foie gras and champagne!

Trauma - Scratch And Scream - 1984 01. Trauma - Scratch And Scream, 1984 Vinyl LP Album
     Shrapnel Records - SH-1017
The hype around this album was pretty intense: Trauma was the band that Cliff Burton was playing in before joining you-know-who. Upon first listen, I was expecting something heavier, more killemallesque. But the initial disappointment vanished quickly because this is an excellent speed metal album. Maybe not at the level of Exciter, Abattoir or Agent Steel, but close. Laaz Rockit fans can only love it. It is more than a mere comet in heavy metal sky, it is a brilliant star in Zer City's Speed Metal panorama.
PS1: I am unable to find a copy of the Blitzkrieg CD "The Mists of Avalon". If you would like to sell me your copy, please email laurent at churchofzer dot com. Please!
PS2: there is this new link on the right:
You can download from this page the program I use to generate and tag all the flac files you download from this blog. It may be useful if you need to fix your collection of audio files: the program will rename and tag your files automatically.
It can handle wav, flac and mp3.
The download is fully legit and safe: I developed the program myself using only bio components, there is no copyright, it is not a limited shareware and it is free of adware pollution, phishing, and any other malware fucking shit. Fuck virus makers, fuck advertisement, fuck spyware, fuck evil.

Of course! You saw it coming and you were right. There is no weak spot in this crossover thrash indulgence. From the concupiscent D.R.I./Excel proposals to the Erosion/Agnostic Front steak hammer via Attitude's Jingo De Lunch orbit, every second of each release fulfills the 80s ape to the bone marrow. Out Of hand is the most aggressively amazing, a permanent staple on my playlist, and of course American Paranoia remains untouchable. Fans of Testament/Exodus/Machine Head might want to hear Chris Kontos rise to excellence. Adjustment til zer!
I just noticed that the American paranoia CD reissue features the same artwork except for the swastika. But they kept the hammer and sickle. Ultra spiritual.

     We Bite Records, We Bite Records - WB 044, WE BITE 044
And to explore further the topic of life after Attitude Adjustment, today we enjoy the great album released by the American Paranoia singer's band, in the universe parallel to Attitude (the other AA offshot). This sole album is a little crossover treasure that rocks til your neck aches. Note that the rest of the band is entirely composed of the Broken Bones people (except the singer of course). So yes... it totally sounds like a hybrid of Attitude and Broken Bones. Awesome and underrated!

Featuring Attitude Adjustment's second angry singer, Deathtoll do sound very much like post-American Paranoia AA, to my enormous enjoyment. If these recordings were branded as the follow-ups to Out Of Hand, you would not flinch. Deathtoll deliver straightforward ripping thrashcore that will make any 80s enthusiast cry. A lot. Thrash til rezer!!!

01. Old Head - Maximum Rock, 2011 CD Album
     At War With False Noise - ATWAR092
From fine people in Brutal Truth, Total Fucking Destruction and Rumpelstiltskin Grinder, here comes the hottest and most energetic retroldschool metal album of the decade. It's like Megadeth and Angel Witch doing nasty business in a hot cave. Strictly no Earache retro band can even dream of brushing the class of this criminally ignored little diamond. A diamond made of metal, of course! Rock til you zer!

Sausage is very great, but Oysterhead is totally amazing and features Steward Copeland. Sailing the seas of zer!
