Ashdöd (29.03.21)

Hi Dani! How are you doing these days? Hope that you and your family are healthy. Hi Alex, thank you for thinking of me for this interview, much appreciated! Everything fine here but trying to keep sane in these strange days. Continuous lockdowns and restrictions here in Spain are turning me a bit mad. Could you share with us a short story about Ashdöd? Everything started one year ago. I made all the music for a new project, a crustcore (or stenchcore as we used to call it back in the days) project. It had to be as a crustcore … Continue reading Ashdöd (29.03.21)

Dødsdømt – 1989 – 2019

Norwegian underground is something unknown to me. For example, Dødsdømt is old crusty hardcore punks from that country. Want to say that this is a very interesting and pleasant discovery. The guys started at the beginning of the 90th but after some years they stopped playing. Only after more than decade guys will reunite, and the new material will be released in 2018. This LP is a collection of all their songs, starting with very old songs and ending with the last recorded song. Also, this vinyl is a part of the punk series by Power It Up rec. For … Continue reading Dødsdømt – 1989 – 2019

Bad Grind Spencer / Mindcollapse

We have talk about a lot, but there will be always some of split/album that you`ve never heard and want to talk about. For today’s review I picked up a dirty and noisy split from two bands from Madrid city. Can’t say that both of these squads are well known outside of their country, but Bad Grind Spencer and Mindcollapse deserve to be shown to grind fans. Please pay a bit attention for this cover. I really like this idea, the designer made fun of stupid celebrities who are wearing underground merchandise… and I agree with him, these fuckers should … Continue reading Bad Grind Spencer / Mindcollapse

Dethrone The Pigs – S/T

We all know Singapore like Grind City, band such as Wormrot, Magnicide and Demisore are a beautiful business card of this island country. But, what about Crust Punk? There aren’t many names are there? Today I want to showcase one interesting, but unknown band from that region. Dethrone The Pigs is a bunch of Punks who started this squad only a few years ago. This self-titled EP is their first record… and they’ve done well. These guys do not play something new and unique; they chose the classic way with society centered lyrics and aggressive music. However that does not … Continue reading Dethrone The Pigs – S/T

Sturmovik – Destination Nowhere (Selfmadegod rec)

Crust band from Poland? Yes! Why not? Sturmovik is a rather young band and this CD is only their first album. But I take my hat off to them, these guys put everything that they had into this release and I felt that during listening. But, for now let`s focus on visual pleasure that is the cover art of this full length. I especially enjoy this piece, the artist has drawn an old plane from WW2 with a bit modern flair but I like it. It looks very handsome with the band logo. And if you open up the booklet, … Continue reading Sturmovik – Destination Nowhere (Selfmadegod rec)

Humus – Eterna Condanna (Death Crush rec)

Humus is our target today. I want to talk about their last album “Eterna Condanna”. This LP is an excellent example of badass Crust Punk. This full length is like a small nuclear missile, it’s charged with destructive power. These guys managed to use so many of the classic Crust elements. From the riffs, to the structures, and even down to the furious energy. Even the artwork is made the old way (a marvelous collage with lots of elements) plus traditional black and white.  Eterna Condanna is a wild Rock and Roll ride that will keep you holding on by … Continue reading Humus – Eterna Condanna (Death Crush rec)
