Agathocles – Thanks for your Hostility

Classical AG now available again! This repress is fucking killer! What do I mean? This gatefold edition has great paper quality, album history (which was written by Jan), some old photos and a massive bonus. This is a really strong release, Power It Up rec can be proud of this work! 

This lp has a nice sound (just keep in mind that the original session was pretty messy). Aside from the original 26 songs this edition has a very solid bonus, a radio session that was recorded decades ago in their hometown. If you ever heard AG before, then you know what to expect from them. Their ugly, deformed, ripping and filthy mincecore full of nihilism could smash. I love this sound for its guitar and angry vocals. The brand riffs are well recognizable and it’s also easy to remember them. The drums sounds good, and I know that there are some minor mistakes but fuck it, all drums were recorded on the second try, the first was totally fucked up… but hey it`s hard to record on tape, those days there weren’t the same recording technologies as we have now. Also this is grind, so it doesn’t have to be perfect, only straight energy.
As for the bonus material, it’s a live recording which sounds really nice. Raw, crazy and alive. I strongly recommend that you read the history of it, inside the gatefold.     

Agathocles on this album are: Bass, Vocals [Throat] – Jan*
Drums, Vocals [Mouth] – Burt* / Guitar, Voice – Matty*

All noises were recorded sometime in September and October 1996 at the Soundshape Studios in Arendonk, Belgium (info was stolen from discogs :)).
