1st LP + Japanese 7" (louder), UK 1989/1990 (RELOADED 13.10.2011)
Stranger 7", UK 1990 (RELOADED 13.10.2011)
Japanese 7", UK 1991
Fatness, UK 1992
Meatfly is another branch on the Heresy family tree, and one as great as Force Fed. Looks like every band Kalv joined just becomes an essential monster of zer, just listen to the monstrous bass lines here. Meatfly deliver some crazy good UK HC with a metal and hard rock layer, expertly played and with nice melodic touches too, the singer's performance is really cool. Overall Meatfly could be described as a hybrid of a slower Heresy and a faster double dose of Motörhead x Discharge with the drive and catchiness of Scream. ESSENTIALLY ROCKING THRASH ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YDI - out for blood

YDI - out for blood (discography), USA 1982/1988
I have alreayd posted "Black dust", but this CD also contains the demo and the legendary 7", so get it too. Primitive hardcore and raw metal from State to Hellhammer, ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Zyklome A - noise & distortion

Zyklome A - noise & distortion, Belgium 1982/1985
This must have all of Zyklome A's recordings, demos, live, LP etc. and most importantly the "Cleanse the bacteria" tracks. So you're in for a barrage of over and hour of primitive and angry punk-turning-thrashcore ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!

State - all wrong

State - all wrong, USA 2006
I could not really believe State were doing a new album in 2006, but yes, here it is, superbly succeeding in matching "no illusions", the 1983 hardcore bomb. Raw, fast and loud hardcore punk of the ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREST FORM with a Discharge "State control" cover!!!!!!!!!

Fearless Vampire Killers - rally round the FVK

Fearless Vampire Killers - rally round the FVK, Japan 1987/1993
The youngest and the not-really-human do not see anything particular in the band name, title and artwork of this CD, but the rest of us know we're going to spend one hell of an intense hour with the Japanese Bad Brains. Along Militant Mothers, FVK were the most satisfying and closest Bad Brains imitation ever, and their music rocks so much you don't care about the resemblance (anymore than with Slayer or Discharge clones). THIS IS ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
CD rip (11 studio tracks + 19 live tracks).


sweet life, Holland 1988
headrush + the shametree, Holland 1989/1991
I was a fool and only previously posted sweet life. The next two album are also enormous pieces of heavy rock, a bit of metal and many twisted things underneath. The melodies and the groove add up into an explosion of technically brilliant Victims Family|Assassins of God-like orgy of satisfaction. Thank you God!!!! ZERRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!
Vinyl rip. I saw some copies for cheap on ebay, fetch them.

Capitol Punishment - messiah complex

Capitol Punishment - messiah complex, USA 1993
Another excellent CP album, more "mature" sounding, ie. more rock and melodies à la Hüsker Dü than before, still with a bluesy approach and plenty of these vocals, as well as the new singer which make sit an album with 2 different lead vocals, zer. Very ROCKING ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!
the first line-up and slum with a view


Enrage - empty + 7", USA 1995/1997
On every second of his life, the wise zerist remembers how marvelously gratifying and superb the first Life Of Agony and Type O Negative albums are. Therefore, he cannot live without the magnificence of the Enrage sound of overwhelming power and class. The melodies and the heaviness of the Enrage records are the juice and the spice of the perfect GROOVY DEADLY ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mudhead - brutal time

Mudhead - brutal time, Italy 1993

US hardcore legends! Offenders were the missing link between early Verbal Abuse and DRI ("dealing with it!" features Mikey from Offenders on bass), and maybe a bit of Verbal Assault. Offenders have a very personal sound that does not age, their raging hardcore punk floors the zerist mammal young and old and WE MUST ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

Saxon & Kreator - 2009 albums

Saxon - Into The Labyrinth, UK 2009
Kreator - Hordes of Chaos, Germany 2009
Saxon, the band that definitely converted me to heavy metal 75,000 years ago... This is an excellent album of classic hard rock. This year AC/DC, G'n'R and Metallica released flacid elevator music albums, so stick to the new Motörhead and Saxon! Thank you Saxon for 30 years of hard rocking ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!
The new Kreator is really good too, better than the two previous ones, rawer, more aggressive, more Slayer. Watch out for the tour with Exodus !

the singles, Germany 1987/1992 LINK REPAIRED AGAIN 23 may 2011
German punk rock attack!!! BSG's music is an ultra catchy, ironic and heavy dose of punk rock and rock'n'roll. I discovered them from the cult 1988 split LP with Distortion X (best cover art ever!!!) and they were put on my personal orbit ever since. The ultra mega hit "Jaqueline" is worth alone the whole download. You will dance TIL ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!

Can't Decide

s/t, UK 1989
five seven nine eleven, UK 1991
Universal thrash masters Heresy and Ripcord spawned a batch of amazing bands like Force Fed, Meatfly (coming soon here) and Can't Decide. Surprisingly (for the Heresy addict in search of more light-speedcore), Can't Decide were not in the über fast darkness business and delivered melodic HC like a heavier SNFU, Sink or Dag Nasty. While not as exciting as the aforementioned (due to the vocals), this stuff rocks and is a must for the UKHC completist. Melodic ZERRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!
Vinyl rip.

So Much Hate

how we feel + blind alley, Norway 1987/1988
seein' red LP + a day at the station 7" + purple haze, Norway 1991
lies, Norway 1993
From the Kafka Process family emerged So Much Hate. Let's just say that So Much Hate were Norway's answer to Negazione - rocking fast and vicious thrash with developed musicality and arrangements, with a metal touch. Top quality thrashcore ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!
Vinyl rip except "Seein red".
Buy now the "How we feel" re-release : or Buy or regret! Small pressings go quickly for this sort of classics.

no canonization 7", Sweden 1990
for the security, Sweden 1991
disharmonization, Sweden 1993
screaming machines, Sweden 1996
The prototyping of Total Zerness comes forward with the unavoidable genius and talent in Carbonized. First I will scare many by stating that Carbonized is essentially a sub-Therion thing, yes, Therion, the Swedish nightmarish knight of elevator dragons, Therion, the high priest of suburban princess-metal. Of course there is a but: BUT Carbonized has musically nothing to do with tv-commercial romantic heavy metal. The first 2 Carbonized records feature fast primitive death metal, and pretty cool at it, in the vein of, yet not as enjoyable as, the first Brutal Truth album. Subtle prog riff twisting already surface here. Then things become drastically fantastic with the last 2 albums : these are masterpieces of progressiveness and mind altering pulses at the crossroads of Victims Family with blast beats, King Crimson with anger and the most experimental of dissonant Voïvod. Just download if you don't believe, unbeliever. You nucleus accumbens will flow with large streams of dopamine. INTENSIVE PSYCHO CARE UNIT ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Angel Rot

staying alive 7", USA 1991
unlistenable hymns of indulgent damnage, USA 1993 LINK FIXED
Bring you own bucket and barf at the sickening delivery of Angel Rot - the missing link between St-Vitus, early White Zombie and Amebix. And the Bee Gees of course. Awesome almost doom heavy death rock ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!

State of Fear - discography

State of Fear - discography, USA 1994/1996
For references, S.o.F. contains Disrupt members. So yeah, this is the third wave of professional crust thrash, following the initial Discharge | Rattus | TK blast, then the Mob 47 | Amebix | No Security | Anti-Cimex assault. Fast, dirty, linear and aggressive, they perfectly fit on a day of Disgust | Driller Killer ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

F.U.C.T. - dimensional depth perception, USA 1990
Forever Ungratical Corinaric Technikilation! When you read that name, AT LEAST you listen to the album. Then you buy it because you're a compulsive crossover thrash/death/core addict and when things sound like early C.o.C. and Wehrmacht with a ton of deadly groove, you know you can't let it rest on the store shelf. INCOMPRESSIBLE CROSSOZERRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!

Urban Waste

Urban Waste 12", USA 1982
I love using the term "abrasive", so I'll write that Urban Waste is the quintessence of abrasive hardcore punk. This is the glorious dirtiness and aggressiveness expected in a any serious zer collection. Load Urban Waste between the State and Disorder playlists, bang you head to the rabid ZERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
