Hard To Swallow

Hard To Swallow killer compilation, 1995/1997
Fans of fat thrashcore awake! If the invocation of names like Septic Death, Rose Rose and Rorschach has the effect to inflate your favorite blood vessels, stop here and get a condensed fix right now with this bomb of a thrashcore compilation from an expert band in the field of skull crushing. But Hard To Swallow do not only try to deteriorate your hearing, they know how to craft memorable pieces of music and are just plain awesome. Fuck yeah!!!
This immense CD contains the split 7" w/Underclass, split 7" w/Manfat, their tracks from To An End Comp. LP, Strictly Ballroom Comp 7", Wear Your Smell Comp. LP and the Demo '95.


private hell, 1989
abominations, 1990
At one point the dudes in Half Off wanted to try something that was not 198 mph hardcore, and Haywire is their heavy/sludge/metal testcase. The first album is still very much mid-tempo hardcore, but darker in a Verbal Assault manner, and the second album is the full progression into fresh-out-of-the-swamp slow core in the fashion of the Scam on metal | late Verbal Assault | 1st decade of Melvins. Miam!
CD rip & LP rip from

private hell:
1. So Good 02:26
2. Sword Swallower 02:58

Grind Madness at the BBC

disk 1 : Napalm Death + Extreme Noise Terror
disk 2 : Carcass + Bolt Thrower
disk 3 : Godflesh + Unseen Terror + Heresy + Intense Degree
track 46 on disk 1 UPDATE
The 80s were this dark place where porn was not free, but it was also the unbelievable beginning of grindcore, zer! I vividly remember this summer day of 1988 when I received a tape from a penpal recorded from the BBC with the 1st Napalm Death session... I pressed "play" and I would never recover. This was the most insanely brutal shit I had ever heard and at this time I had already been for years on a steady diet of S.O.B., Lärm, Cryptic Slaughter, Wehrmacht, Possessed, Sodom and everything that is the juice of life.


Even if you already own most of these sessions in their original vinyls or CDs, this triple CD reissue is really worth getting because I think some of the best stuff here from Heresy, E.N.T. and Napalm Death has not been available so far. Plus it was all remastered and the tracks are split (no more bunches of 3 or 4 songs per track like on the original CD versions). And the price is nice, as the package and the long Mick Harris interview. And zer.
If you need me to complain, let's say the 110% perfect release would have also included the sessions from Electro Hippies and
Prophecy of Doom. Still an infinite supply of zer as it is!!!

Recipients of Death - don't buy the CD!

s/t + final flight, 1988/1990
I was very happy to find the CD reissue of these 2 classic mini LPs of first grade thrash metal. But this is another case of lame vinyl-to-cd where they (Black Cobra Records) used a dirty needle on used records and didn't even listen to their rip before shipping it to the pressing plant! It is all distorted and fucked up. I never heard such a horrible rendering. Try my own vinyl rip and compare.
Shitty CD rip (brand new CD for sale! only played twice!).

hardrocker, 1995
king of the sidewalk, 1996
decibel rebel, 1997
Global warming Venomotörhead mega worship!!! Also for the old fans of classic Bulldozer|Backwater or the new league into Malignant Tumour|Pistons and all the sonic grease that makes life a happy moment (within the ocean of death). Fast, loud and dirty thrashing killer hard rock! Sex, drugs and Gehennah!!!

black seared heart (demo), 1993
first spell, 1994
seeing through the veil of darkness (second spell), 1995
malice (third spell), 1996
adimiron black, 1998
murder, 2000
ww, 2005
I think the balance between straight-edge hardcore and its moral contrary black metal is a bit in favor of the SxEx on this blog, so here is a fat dose of evil black metal! Corpse paints, pentagrams and a full-throttling Bathory revisitation! This is first class stuff at the level of Satyricon. Despite the exagerated keyboards, "malice" is my favorite for the doctorate it earns in the science of infinite groove (ad arma ad arma!!!), or maybe the very violent "ww", I have to run another comp test. "murder" and "adimiron" reek of dry death, death and more death (no keyboard!), the first 2 spells are classic 90s blackness, while "ww" returns to straightforward non-stop blacker bathoriesque sledgehammering blast beat mania: this record has quasi hypnotic qualities, fuck yeah. Forests, castles, orgies, satan!

Ripping Corpse | Dim Mak

Ripping Corpse - splattered remains (demo), 1989
Ripping Corpse - dreaming with the dead, 1991
Dim Mak - knives of ice, 2006
Fuck yeah! On saturday, in a used CDs bin doomed to be trashed, I found a cheap green CD released by Willowtip, with an ugly front cover that reminded me the ugliness of Morbid Angel's "Domination" artwork. So I just bought the disc, I enjoy blind-buying a lot, especially when I hope on some Morbid Angel stuff. Going home, playing the CD, spending the rest of the day drooling. This shit is the most insane stuff I've heard in years!!! Well at least since the latest Brutal Truth album... Lightning fast crazy death metal!!! Extra big ass thrashing death complete destruction!!!! And with a high level of variations and the immense talent of making it all memorable and singable in the shower, incredible! You can hear they're first here to make great songs, not just to win the olympics of metal (although they do anyway!). Then the voice and riffs reminded me of something; I did the research and bam, these guys are ex Ripping Corpse. No wonder why Dim Mak is so great! I now have to check out the other two Dim Mak discs.
I'm taking this opportunity of joyful metallic happiness to re-upload some Ripping Corpse. In 91 I discovered 2 corpses in a single week. I quickly dismissed the Cannibal as boring and flat, but to this day I am still hooked on the Ripping!! Legendary thrashing death with a unique sound of total zer!

CD rip except vinyl rip of the demo:
1. Rift Of Hate 02:59
2. Exhumation Day 02:44

Zer! Du super AC/DC de luxe!

Pur hard rock des transpirations primordiales avec les textes du même métal ancestral. Putain que c'est bon comme Océan, j'ai bien fait de fouiller dans les vieux disques hier.

Chain of Strength

the one thing that still holds true (both 7" + 1 comp track), 1989/1991
Among the handful of survivors of the straight-edge records in my record collection (you need to purge now and then!), here are, upon request, the young and healthy Chain Of Strength. Pretty solid, fast thrashing hardcore that I enjoy much more than the NYHC division! Very good indeed and passes the test of time very well.

The Grim

getting revenge in 'merica, 1984
face of betrayal, 1988
2010! Zer! A heavy new year and a happy zer year to everyone and everything! Zer.
As starters for 2010, let's indulge into the mega great records of The Grim (no I don't have the 7", anyone ?). The first 12" (13 minutes long...) is one of these 80s US HC pearls - nardcore branch in excellent snot fashion. Then "face of betrayal" turns metal and sits on your face with plenty of superb groove and awesome guitar solos. There is a touch of the Melvins and Excel in this amazing load of heavy metal.

1. Walls of Hope
2. Sunday School
3. Old Enough

5. No Respect
