What can be said,this is a blog where I will post some stuff I really like,so I think you should like it too.I am a metalhead to the heart,but I will put here every kind of stuff I like,not only Metal.I hope you will enjoy it,and let me know if there is anything needed,especially from the ex-Yugoslavia territory.
Another new and pretty young Croatian Metal band,great (modern) Thrash Metal,I received great reviews of their live performances,and I can only add that this is a very powerful recording,and that this band surely have a bright future..Meanwhile,while we wait the first full cd,enjoy this nice demo!!Recommended!
Tracks: 01.Blazing energy 02.Sufosia 03.Room of mirrors 04.Chaotic dream 05.Tears of Christ
Another great Punk/HC moment from the Pula`s history.I myself don`t know much about them,but I suppose members of Mentalni nered were involved in this band.They lasted very short,but fortunately Vladimir kept this recording and contributed with it to this blog.The stuff here is very raw HC/Punk,and not actually a studio recording,but a rehearsal one,but very raw and sincere,just like my friend Kukatz like..
Tracks: 01.Danas 02.Zivot 03.Zakon 04.Luciferove trupe 05.Da li znas 06.Lost in space
This is a nice compilations of bands from Pula,exactly bands from the Garage Rock wave/mania/invasion at the end of the 80s.I bet Pula was the city with most garage rock bands in the world at that time.They are all on this cassette made by a HC fan from Rakalj,in the heart of Istria,mr. Geza.Enjoy this piece of Pula`s Rock history! A trivia about the title:a contingent of some 10 bands from Pula went by bus to Rijeka to a regional bands contest (called Gitarijada).Among them were Devastation,Messerschmitt (their very first show!!!),The Swindle,Sumrak Ideja,Ulicni Dzuboks,052..I had a tape recorder with me,to record the Devastation show,and some few,and the Messerschmitt too.The bands from Pula were totally discriminated and practicly all bands played early in the afternoon.We were pretty angry about it,and all our anger came out through Miro Kusacic (vox,guitar) brilliantly announcing that the Messerschmitt show,as well as the shows of all Pula bands that afternoon are part of a unity called Pula-London-Teheran (as opposite to the title of a compilation of bands from Rijeka entitled Rijeka-Paris-Texas).Also,the title is a parody of the legendary "This is Boston,not LA" compilation (the translation is This Is Pula,not Rijeka).
Tracks: SINOVI 01.Previse zvuka 02.7000 ljudi 03.Sestra MESSERSCHMITT 04.Keep a knocking 05.We`re the road crew 06.Today,today SPOONS 07.Louie Louie 08.Witch 09.Nobody but me F.M.D. 10.Fourth 11.Zoom pictures 12.Race to the moon WASHINGTONES 13.Have love will travel 14.Psycho 15.My generation GUBITNICI 16.Jako puno 17.Sam 18.Sebastijan
Terrorizer were a band that played very very fast Metal before it came widely accepted.This was a kind of supergroup,with members of Morbid Angel,Napalm Death and Nausea..If you don`t know who Terrorizer are..what are you waiting for??
Tracks: 01.Ripped to shreds 02.Corporation pull-in 03.After world obliteration 04.Human prey 05.Strategic warheads 06.Fallout 07.Infestation
Again some Anti-Otpad,a long time passed since their last post,so here it is another tape from this band extremely important for the history of the Pula`s underground scene.16 tracks of HC rage with an underground recording/production,but still powerful.You won`t miss this if you collect and enjoy HC Punk from these territories..
Tracks: 01.Sunce je brze 02.Jeo govna 03.Drzava 04.Dok ovdje sjedim 05.N.D.T.Z. 06.Think,feel,live 07.Normalan-nisam 08.Pas 09.Droga za sve 10.U mojoj glavi 11.Ekoloska 12.Hajde,reci mi 13.Mali covjek 14.In your neighbourhood 15.Barbara 16.Saljem S.O.S.
This is a nice Ep of a very young band made of 2 girls and a guy.They claim they play Punk Rock,if you ask me I wouldn`t go that far,there is a Punk Rock energy in this stuff,but it is not pure Punk Rock,even if I am gonna classify it as that.Anyway for a band in their years and at the beginning,very good stuff indeed. And the girlies really know to play..
This one is a tape I got from Maras (the red guitar in the pic!Well,not the guitar,the player!) in the days of our first contacts,and it consists of a studio side,and a live side containing a superb soundboard live recording.This is a tape that shows Drinking Skull thrashing the best way they did in their carreer.I still hope I will see again Maras,Hrvoje and the gang together on stage.Who knows..
Tracks: Studio side 01.He is here (intro)+Suicide society 02.Enliven the world 03.People that make you feel small 04.My evil 05.I`m going away Live side 06.Enliven the world 07.Church of hate 08.Create to destroy 09.People that make you feel small 10.End of life (suicide) 11.Breaking the law (Judas Priest cover) 12.Milk (S.O.D. cover)
I watched this band last December in their hometown Cakovec on a charity-gig
(I don`t want to make a mistake on it,but I think it was to help the Bakterije`s vocalist in his fight against leukaemia)..you should have seen the chaos during their show..they surely have a lot of fans in their town,but I felt that huge energy coming off the stage..It was a damn good show,and this short three tracker is as exciting as it was their show.If you`re into HC Punk,then you`ll be a fool to miss this one!!
