Unwanted Youth

Unwanted Youth - Unwanted Youth - 1988 01. Unwanted Youth - Unwanted Youth, 1988 Vinyl LP Album
     Destiny Records - EFA 12-5141
Let us exhume another lost gem of the 80s hardcore scene. This short album oozes with energy and urgency in typical Attitude Adjustment | No Allegiance | Corpus Vile form. The listener might not get floored at first - this is fairly generic 80s hardcore/punk. But the power of seduction of this assembly of raw, speedy songs is obvious, and it is done with quite some class. The riffs are great, the prominent bass lines are great, the drumming is great, the vocals are great, the arrangements are great and the production is great. The songs are great, the the "artwork" is fucking lazy, this album is a great and generally catchy minor classic. Excellent job, would have deserved at least two follow-ups!

Gargoyle - Junreiin

Gargoyle - Junreiin - 1998 01. Gargoyle - Junreiin, 1998 CD EP
     Paranoiz - PAR-70003
A couple of weeks ago, the Church discovered with great horror that this EP was not in its collection. Ordered, ripped, zerred. The Church could live without minor Gargoyle EPs, but not without this awesome seven tracks disc. If you discount for the ugly ballad, this is one short bomb of pure gargoylesque highly flexible thrash metal and hard rocking explosions. It features only hits, especially the first and last songs that have taken full control of the Church neuron via infinite loops. Totally infectious! Gargoyle rule the zeriverse forever!

     Profound Lore Records - PFL-048
If you hate doom, this is not your lucky post. Bloody Panda incarnated doom on a funeral leg and on a experimental drone leg. Plus they delivered outstanding live performances (Mtl Katacombes 2009 ZER!) for full crowd flattening.  The discography is short but intense and every single second is an exercise in mindfuck. The slow dirge is augmented by the insane vocals of a young lady who looked inversely menacing, and exquisitely morbid layers of keyboard, for once this instrument is put to good use. And they were the nicest of guests. Grand doom domination til the nadir of the zeriverse!

Welcome to hell! Fans of Venom, Warfare, Bulldozer, Bathory and all our usual darlings are de facto fans of Whipstriker, who greatly reproduce the exact vibe of 1981-1985 sleazy black rocking thrash metal punk. Especially Venom. I cannot remember if I know of another Venom clone that sounds as exactly as Venom, from WTH to Possessed. Only Filth Will Prevail even contains a Warfare cover, well done. I won't bother ranking these releases, some are better than others, but they all rock. My favorite is Only Filth Will Prevail. Mid-tempo dirty neo-proto-thrash with balls and hair, zer!

Totenmesse - To - 2018 01. Totenmesse - To, 2018 CD Album
     Pagan Records - MOON018
I had planned a totally different and larger post for today, but something went wrong. While this is being fixed, let us drool over this unbelievable black bomb of Polish destruction. Poland, the new black metal Mecca! Featuring evil people also involved in Mord A Stigmata, Mgla, Odraza, Medico Peste and other supreme kings of perfect sonic obliteration and soul munching, Totenmesse sculpt your inner and outer meat with such finesse and lightning speed that you beg for more - I often repeat-play this CD. Their black metal is simultaneously very sophisticated and extremely vicious, plus they deliver the best King Crimson cover this side of physical existence. No "atmospheric" shit here, only twisted fast riffs and evil complexities to crush skulls and melt brains in pure Easter Europe fashion. No war metal either: the brutality here is calculated and engineered from a control bunker, there is no bestial invasion of the Archgoat or Revenge sort. Totenmesse just exploit the best of both worlds: black terror and evil surgery, and deliver actual songs with personality instead of a rectangular blur of noisegression (I have nothing against rectangular blurs, but today we reach another level). Songs you remember and songs you want to hear again, with dynamics in the sonic panorama. A true album! Straight to the first half of my 2019 top ten even if it was released in 2018! Totenmesse über zer and triplazer!!!

Black death destruction! With thrash metal riffs, especially on the last releases. There are killer hooks and memorable parts everywhere, with a special award to Mortis Dei. Precise savagery in hostile blackness, straight forward sonic terror, speed and power, you got the whole arsenal for the perfect headbanging. If you are looking for experiments and originality, look elsewhere. If you are into a glory ride of neck breaking and aural decapitation, enter the Forest Of Impaled!

03. Violent Dirge - Elapse, 2019 CD Album Reissue Remastered
     Pagan Records - MOON 123
In the remote corners of the basement sit old tapes full of corrosion and death. After decades of slow rot and grey dust, an excited exhumation brings them to the light of day and reveals their vicious power. Violent Dirge were one killer band with the combined destructive abilities of Sadus, Grave, Dark Angel, Ripping Corpse and Gorguts. Absolute first class material! Their usage of heavy artillery with precision and class makes their barbarous delivery all the more impressive and enjoyable. There is complexity in the disgust and there is virtuosity in the hate. Expert world war riffing, giant pummeling drumming, prominent killer bass lines, horror voices from the crypts of zer, clarity of destination through the density of architecture and mechanized butchery! Zerification of the obliteration! Metalization of the total thrashing death!
These tapes did not age too well. A link to a better/CD rip of Obliteration and one for Craving are of course very much appreciated.

Ensnared - Dysangelium - 2017 01. Ensnared - Dysangelium, 2017 CD Album
     Dark Descent Records, Invictus Productions - DDR187CD, IP110
I wanted to like this CD, I really did because of the artwork. So, I got my copy after checking under thirty seconds of their sound on the bandcamp page. Invictus and DD release mostly killer stuff anyway. And then it was delivered to my mailbox and then I played it and then I did not like it, I fucking LOVED IT! There is barely anything here that the death and black metal addict has not heard before, but this is the kind of minor masterpiece that does not need to reinvent music to reach the highest standards of class, personality, roughness and grimness, at the same time. If you expect 666 references, come again. Let's say this album should equally reach out to Crown Of Thorns and Morbid Angel fans. It is that great! Triplazering black til death!
