Arnø x Duebel/Crystal Methodist (Knockentapes)

I have been rather excited to sit down and review this split since the day it arrived at my front door. Some of Germany’s meanest Powerviolence comes from the vicious Arnø x Duebel from Plauen.

Today I`ll be listening their self titled work… First of all I want to say … Continue reading En Negacion – s/t (Knochentapes)
