Today's post of Reagan`s In on Pay No More triggered this here post. Because of course, for those who cannot read French, I entirely disagree with Jolicoeur's bashing of Black Daze, who will be cursed to the 666th generation for such blasphemy. This is the reminiscence of the good old 80s feud between punk and metal - back then, it was impossible for both crowds to mix, and all the hardcore bands who morphed into metal bands were simply disgraced as traitors, sell-outs and - evil of all evils - capitalists. The monks at MRR were really good at that. Hopefully, nobody cared about the MRR politburo and crossover was born for the endless consumption and the glowing rejoicing of all. So, after releasing two first-class records of US HC punk that would cater to fans of Zero Boys, DI, Toxic Reasons etc. Wasted Youth put out Black Daze, a superb, even mandatory addition to any crossover fan's collection. It has this late Excel and Beowulf vibe while bending toward the flexible speed metal approach of early Forbidden or Flotsam And Jetsam: melodic and full of energy, strong and hot, zer and rezer. A triplazer crossover masterpiece to bang your head to! Crossover forever!

  1. Well damn. Now I guess I've got to listen to Black Daze. Never heard it. Reagan's In was one of my earliest HC experiences. Still love it. And while My Yard was quite a departure I came to love that one too. But, since I was one of those troglodytes that listened too closely to MRR comments, I never even gave Black Daze a chance. But now, since my priest is telling me to.....

  6. Pour me faire pardonner de mon blasphème, j'ai numérisé le pirate, ça peut peut être t'intéresser. Je t'envoie les liens des morceaux en wave et du disque en mp3 avec les scanns.
    J'ai réécouté le black daze et j'ai l'impression que je suis moins allergique qu'il y a 25 ans. A réécouter plus attentivement...
