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.
Heh,another vintage Hard Rock band from the ex-Yugoslavia,exactly from Sarajevo,Bosnia and Hercegovina.For the people of the Yu-language,the lyrics of this band are funny or stupid,anyway,the music is a pretty raw and strong Hard Rock,you surely can`t go wrong with this one.VP released cca 10 albums,but this one is pretty good,and it is again an album I bought in Sarajevo,I don`t have it anymore but I remember it was a pretty good album.Enjoy it.
Tracks: 01.Krv i znoj 02.Sad se vidi,sad se zna 03.Ne ide to 04.Kako da znam 05.Svi za Rock`n`Roll 06.Zivio Rock`n`Roll 07.Jasna stvar 08.Postovani ska ska 09.Hej,zaboravi 10.Sto put na dan
I am boring to myself..I have to repeat one more time,this is an album I loved and still love a lot.We were all scared back in time,when Bruno Langer (bass,and from this album on,vocal) decided the band will continue without Sergio Blazic.Actually,Bruno remained alone,and continued the band with first 3 more members (and,I remember that show,it was pretty brilliant),and then with just two guys who are still today with Bruno,Ranko on guitar,and Nikica on drums.

I also remember the recording of this album,recorded in the studio of Radio Pula,and it lasted (if Bruno is honest) 10 hours.The production is (my opinion) very good,but a little thin.However,I remember also the first promo gig for this album (I have a short video cut of that gig on a VHS tape,and for a second you can see me,my brother and Beli from Anti-Otpad jumping and singing like crazy in front of the stage!!!I hope I will be able to transfer it and put it here.),the show was perfect.You see,this record means a lot to me,a lot of memories..but if you like Hard Rock made by AS,or if you collect their releases,then..you know..
Tracks: 01.Johnny II 02.Cocaine baby 03.Ljubavna masina 04.Zar ptica 05.Tesko je biti andjeo 06.Tajna 07.Ne racunaj na mene 08.Kineski bicikl 09.Nikad vise
I have this EP on a tape of assorted HC and Grindcore ep`s and singles,and I have to repeat as I said for many bands and stuff here,I adore this one.Melodic Finnish HC/Punk with two vocals (male and female) and with saxophone.Sounds strange to you,but it is simplier and better than you might think. PS:I remember,this band played in Pula in 95 or 96,and had their saxophone stolen just before the show (not stolen in Pula,of course).I wasn`t there unfortunately,and I don`t remember very well how it ended..
Great record,a vinyl I still have and won`t let go.This is pretty hard to find around,I suppose there is a CD version (this should be the one,on the vinyl version there is only 10 tracks,without the last Kiss cover),and wherever you search for this album,even in wikipedia,you get only the title and the year of releasing.But lucky me,I found also this rip.The album is AOD`s usual perfectly played fun-Punk/HC,but I really fell in love with this record.I hope you will too. PS:The song featured on the video is not from this album!
Tracks: 01.If it`s Tuesday,it must be walla walla 02.Bulimic food fight 03.Swindel 04.Stew 05.Second to none 06.My mother can`t drive 07.Theme from an imaginary midget western 08.Something about Amy Carter 09.Flipside unclassified 10.Baby elephant walk 11.Detroit Rock city (Kiss cover)

This is really high quality Metal,not exactly the style I follow/listen/like,but when a record is good and really of a higher class,it must be said.This is (I`ll say it without knowing deeply this kind) Power Metal at its best.After Space Eater,this is another great surprise from Serbia,a country with a billion Metal bands..
This is a very good Slovenian Thrash Metal band from the first part of the 90s.Unfortunately the recording here is a bit silent,but pretty clean and understandable,so you can hear some nice Thrashing cuts from this band.All I know about them is a note that I found on the net,and it goes like "the most active Slovenian Thrash bands of the first half of the 90s were Interceptor and Acrodus".A must for the collectors of ex-yu Metal.
I am going a little outside the schemes of this blog,but this is a nice one.Taken in the van while traveling to Osijek,here is a Rio`s stunning performance of La Mula De Parenzo,a traditional Istrian song.Don`t miss this one!!!
Ok,it`s time to put the second issue of this nice fanzine,the success of the first issue was really great,and I know you are waiting for this one.The first one was a better copy,so here might happen that some parts won`t be easily readable,but still it is the best possible scan.In this issue you have interviews with Sodom,Celtic Frost,Bathory,Corrosion Of Conformity,Destruction, Possessed,Dark Angel,then articles about Iron Angel,Tormentor (pre-Kreator),Death,and finally reviews of new released by Sodom,Destruction,Septic Death,Excel,Exodus,Celtic Frost,Antichrist and Adrenalin O.D.A page that might interest you most is the ad that Celtic Frost put here searching for a drummer!!So,there you go!
