Humit / Abortion / Alea Iacta Est / Sedem Minút Strachu / Kumuru / Paskuda (Totalitarianism Still Continues)

Today I want to tell you about one of the two most interesting compilation records dedicated exclusively to the Slovak extreme scene. One small vinyl holds tracks by 6 bands you should really be aware of. So let us begin this tour gentlemen! Humit – one very strange band. 1 track is very strange piece of music with a hint of noisecore … only bass and drums, not so surprising of course, but I’ve seen some people who can do miracles with this set up… and unfortunately, this is not the case. In general, Humit did not conquer my heart. Abortion … Continue reading Humit / Abortion / Alea Iacta Est / Sedem Minút Strachu / Kumuru / Paskuda (Totalitarianism Still Continues)

Alea Iacta Est & Rageous Intent (Sekac Records)

What could possibly be common between Slovakia and Spain? You could waste a whole week thinking about it, but I recommend you to listen to this split instead! These bands are huge friends for sure, they toured together in Europe and then made a split!Alea Iacta Est is not a new band for me, I already did a review on their split with Controlled Existence from Czech Republic.

In the beginning we played without drums, but after a short time Sanyi has taken up this position and Stefan has also joined the band choosing the second guitar. Both played in a local punk band called KARAK before they joined us.

Alea Iacta Est & Controlled Existence 7"

One day I was drinking great Brazilian coffee, there was Baywatch on the TV and overall the morning was good. But my rest was disturbed by sudden knock on my door. I thought it was people from recruitment office, but it turned out to be postman with a package for me. Inside this package was split of great Slovakian band Alea Lacta Est and Controlled Existence from Czech Republic. Slovakian grindcore is pretty recognizable, like Czech goregrind, even if someone wakes you up in the middle of the night and ask you what’s this music, you wouldn’t make a mistake, … Continue reading Alea Iacta Est & Controlled Existence 7"
