Punk rocking textbook American 80s hardcore punk! Christ On A Crutch sound like so many others, let's just say that early MDC or AOD comes to mind, or had they played twice as fast, Stikky. It's fun, generic and great when you're in a punk rocking mood. Rock til you zer!

     Dark Symphonies - DARK 55
     Reissue from 2016 - includes Externally Scarred 1988 demo
This hidden classic is happily resurrected by DS for the drooling enjoyment of old and young thrashers worldwide. The technical frenzy in this recording evokes early Anacrusis and Sadus: fury & melody in the progressions of fast metal bashing with finesse! We want more, but we won't get any. Bang that head with his one until triplazering skull cracking!

1993! Honeymoon in NYC. We are pissed because the week before our arrival and the week after our departure feature several amazing shows. On the noise-meter, our week is just dull. We end-up agonizing in a three hours lineup at CBGB to enter a super-packed Rollins gig. And it was so hot we did not even stay until the end. Catching a flyer for the album release party of a band called Life Of Agony, we decide to try that. And we are floored! Amazing show in a recycled church! The next morning, straight to the nearest record shop to get the CD. Masterpiece of super-addictive metallic & melodic crossover of the Leeway | Cro-Mags family, only enlarged! I was so hooked that the year after I got this digi with bonus live tracks. Few alums float higher in the zeriverse than River Runs Red. The following albums are less exciting. Ugly is very good, Broken Valley is totally great, even if both albums are not as heavy and dark as River. Although it features the drummer from the Crumbsuckers, Soul is disappointingly alt-rock, almost pop like a Stone Temple Pilot thing, only lighter (yes it is possible). The live unplugged is useless (I only like unplugged stuff when it is Terveet Kädet). The other live CDs are great. And... the new album is underwhelming. I expected more mass, more solid matter, more visceral hooks. Too much happiness? In my ranking, Broken Valley is superior. But let that not distract us from the triplazer running red!

All right, I lied, this is the actual closing of the week of the witch. As a teenager, I was strongly interested in the artwork on the WG records. Such excellence could only result in great music! And indeed, we got - yet another although not that frequent back then - a superb Black Sabbath | Pentagram impersonation. Isn't that the ideal combination? Rocking witch flesh and tombstones!

What is there between Angel Witch and Witchcraft? A Witch! This will conclude our week of the witch (Witchfinder General will have to be postponed due to ripper laziness). Witch really do recall the greatness of early Angel Witch and the stoner psychedelia of Witchcraft, with more noise in the mix. These two albums are the perfect storm of fuzzy hard rocking renewed old brews for practitioners of the 70s sabbaths of lust. Triplazering envoy of the wicked!

Superb excellence in the crawling, major expertise in slow dehydration by black combustion! Here are two killer albums of heavy class, and anyone having a lossless link to the first album is welcome to post it. Merci.

Devil horns and more witch burning! In the league of minor hard rock classics, Witchfynde occupy a fair share of the seats thanks to an excellent mixture of 70s rocking developments with prog overtones and more sinister sound waves that would have fit on an early Mercyful Fate release. Fans of old Angel Witch and Pentagram know! Bang that head in the time machine back to zer future!
Lossless links to their other releases are welcome. Also a clean one for Cloak & Dagger... old vinyl die hard.

Flower power and witch burning! Three albums that pay tribute to the spirit of 70s rock, and then two heavier albums that incorporate the size and density of Solitude Aeturnus and Cathedral, all expertly delivered through first class songs full of soul and heat : five albums of time travelling sonic rocking beauty. Witchcraft are among the best in the crowd of revivers of that immortal Black Sabbath | Uriah Heep potion. The new generation knows how to do it right. It goes up and down, light and dark, under the sun or from the cavern. Triplarocking megazeristic affluence of the neoclassic!

Vomit of the purulent black witch! Slow decomposition of the meat! Into the tar sands! Oppressive death and doom as would deliver a tribe of iron age cannibals: here falls the gift of Witchrist to the zeriverse. Those who do not enjoy their metal primitive and gut-munching should listen to something else. Fans of Unaussprechlichen Kulten and Grave Miasma should enter the cavern and sit down. The Grand Tormentor is the grand winner regarding the clearness of the drowner funeral, Ouroboros is the leader in the obfuscation of the rot blast. Triplazering amount of eternal possession! Terrific avalanche of large obscurity!

Back to the future of yesterday! The almighty teutonic metal scene strikes again! Maybe on a shaky start, since Vengeance was horrifying upon the first listen. Good Metallica inspiration but the vocals and the production... were something. I eventually developed a fondness for this strangely charming record just in time to acquire Metal Revolution and be floored. This one is a classic of thrashing speed metal, as strong a headbanger as Bonded by Blood, Vicious Attack or Amnesty. Speed metal mania! The following releases display greater technicalities, higher speed and more advanced songwriting: expansion of the living mega death! Explosion of killer riffs! Bombardment of cutting metal! Even if Killing in Action is not the most exciting of the lot.
NB: the CD remasters are pretty bad, Vengeance,of Hell is a disaster and Metal Revolution should have been much less compressed. The others are OK.
Now crack these vertebrae and bang that head! Possessed by the triplazering eternal speeding death!
