My first encounter with Blood was with their second CD and the immediate reaction was "Oh cool, a new album by The Blood" - but back home, I was hearing some nasty, primitive death metallic grindcore of the early Napalm Death | Defecation sort, not the awesome punk rock I had expected. No, it was definitely not THE Blood, only Blood, and they made noise from Germany, not the UK. Now it is a lot of retro fun to listen to that stuff again in 2020: the rawness of it all with the simplistic punk riffs and the barbarian rhythms are full of meat and the cauterization has started - but for actual, intense aural gratification, the last album is the most serious entry here. It sounds like they needed a 15 years pause to upgrade from fun-but-second rate blastification (of the wicked) to a complete war machine with Inferno, one hell of a release. I can't find any pre-Inferno Blood album that I would rank nearly as high as early Terrorizer or Carcass, but Inferno  definitely deserves its gold death medal. Blood til grind til death!

Gauze, Death Side, Systematic Death anyone? I knew it! Then click immediately. I do not know the name of that band, but their power to prolong the classic Japanese hardcore thrash sound is amazing and this is exactly the kind of album you want to hear when you need fresh blood with the old style. Fast, furious, high octane 80s japcore from the 21st century! Perfection of the triplazering head smasherizer!
PS: FLAC links to their other releases very much welcome of course.

NRAR: today with the newest and awesome album The Age Of Entitlement! 30 years later, they are still or even more relevant and exciting. Fans of contemporary purveyors of that sound - as in Gama Bomb, Lich King, Dr. Living Dead! etc. - should be delighted by this new Acid Reign release, a perfection of the genre. The old guard who still drools over DRI and Tankard will also be rejoicing massively. Thrash metal rips and crossover rules! And the good news is that the old Acid Reign releases age perfectly well: these dudes never fail to bang that head and this post is entirely fucking zerRrrRRrrRRRrRRrRRrRRrrrrRrrR!!

Requested: zerred for the first time. Refused, the Swedish prodigy of the US hardcore sound! Initially very much into that Victory Records style with the worst of them (Earth Crisis!), they still managed to do it better and release more interesting stuff than that scene was known for - but maybe not enough for my taste since I did not keep their first album This Just Might Be... ...The Truth (FLAC link welcome, I need to sink into some nostalgia now). Everlasting and Song To Fan... are great testimonies to that era, maybe the best stuff I know in that vein, you know, Inside Out etc. Things jump from great to über zer with the very much acclaimed The Shape Of Punk To Come, a worldwide hit that made them almost mainstream. This gem and the last two releases are completely awesome albums if you like your highly rocking, slightly metalized hardcore to run expert renditions of Fugazi, Rage Against The Machine, Shelter etc. sub-structures, still propelled by their heavy machinery with NYHC rotors. One can even detect Tool influences in the guitar tracks, and other things that rock. I just dropped a few big names, you will surely find your own influence detector more accurate - this is just to say here comes great crunchy music with something for a everyone except war metal fanatics. Large greatness in the super rocking zeriverse!
PS: slight typo on the folder name for Everlasting. It will unzip as 1997 instead of 1994.

In my top list of 90s black metallists, Gehenna occupy a large seat, the third album Malice being one of the best blackness I ever heard and my favorite of the lot. While I could never find any interest in Dimmu Borgir who obviously tried to mimic Malice with less artistic success and more commercial success, Gehenna filled that craving for an intermediate between harsh and polished black metal. It is cold and evil, but not recorded-in-the-forest-quality. It is black and menacing, but not a war metal obfuscation of the senses. Every entry here has its own vibe - a bit of death metal in the late 90s releases, some doom decay on the latest release - and a bit of good old Bathory everywhere of course. The black gem of the zerotheque, a high density black star of the zeriverse!

Speaking of Satan, if you have 90 minutes to waste you might enjoy this useless documentary. It tells the sad story of a bunch of SJW bitches wearing Slayer shirts who call themselves The Satanic Temple and who pose as satanists.
They waste so much time and energy in pointless stunts and ridiculous lawsuits that it made my gums bleed with frustration. Their so called seven tenets and entire "philosophy" could have been summarized as The Non-Aggression Principle, but no, that was apparently too complex for their snail-sized brains. Instead, they sell Satan mugs and setup "satanic" after-school classes in order to piss off Fred Phelps disciples and other Christian conservative bastards. WTF. Fight the state for its own sake, not the church or any pointless shit related to "freedom of religion", who fucking cares about the church??? The state is the true church! Real satanists are anti-state libertarians and anarcho-capitalists!.

High octane delivery, dirty abrasion, animal riffing and pounding, kindergarten lyrical content with all the dumbest clichés? CRUST CORE DAY! Accion Mutante are the perfect Extreme Noise Terror clone. If you are not a fan of the sound of E.N.T or its many spin-offs like Disgust, do not bother testing Accion Mutante. I don't know what else to say except I am happy to indulge in this non-variation on the crust thrash theme. Great job and keep on ruining our aural holes!

Marty Friedman may not have owned a DeLorean, but his six-string wizardry has had this tendency to make jaws drop for over three decades and a half. If you snore at the sound of Malmsteen or even Friedman's solo albums and need more meat than just a show off of virtuosity, these albums are the perfect link between actual songs with a speed metal edge and the actual show off. Absolutely brilliant! Some arena-cheese may indeed be found here and there, but overall this is all great hard rocking metal, I'll take that any day over Helloween. Finger burning head scratching triplazer!
