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.
Can you imagine a more Metal cover as this one?You probably can,but let me explain you why I told that.I want you to understand how METAL this cd is.What we have here is a band that plays great Heavy Metal,and they do it very well!This band is from Arizona,and has a member that lives a period in Serbia and the other in the US.As I was told,he does all the music for this band,and that means he is a great talent.Well,enjoy this recording,and you surely will if you like uncompromising Metal.Oh,yeah,and let`s not forget:Darko is the contributor!Thanx!

Unfortunately,no pics of this band.We already had the chance to hear from them on this blog,now this is one of two official live recordings from this Heavy Metal band from Slavonski Brod,formerly known as Sauron.The quality is very good,soundboard recording here and a truly Heavy Metal setlist.The band ended their path in 1999.

..and this is the second excellent album from 1984,the album from one of the strongest band of the 80s coming from the beautiful city of Sarajevo.ZP (translated it is No Smoking) when the war started,they escaped in Croatia and Serbia,and the band splitted in two equally ultrabad sequels,the Serbian ZP (with the vocalist and the symbol of the first band,Nele Karajlic) and the Croatian ZP (with the guitarist and soul of the first band,Sejo Sexton).I could talk for hours about the ZP of the 80s,but instead,I give you this great and strange album,less Poppy than Bajaga`s and more to the ground and more instrumentalistically sophisticated.After the Punk outburst of Anarhija All Over Bascarsija,the band touches almost every corner of New Wave and rock music.One sad thing is that the title of the album (as well as the intro) are taken from a TV serie called "Valter defends Sarajevo" in which Sarajevo was shown as a symbol of never giving up.. after all that happened to the city and its citizens,I am very happy that the city is breathing again with full lungs.I love you,Sarajevo.
Tracks: 01.Intro/Das ist Walter 02.Anarhija all over Bascarsija 03.Abid 04.Put u srediste rudnika Kreka Banovici 05.Selena,vrati se 06.Necu da budem svabo u dotiranom filmu 07.Seki is on the road again 08.Kino Prvi Maj 09.Pamtim to kao da je bilo danas 10.Zenica blues 11.Cejeni odlaze
These days I gave an ear to two albums from the good old Yugoslavian Rock scene,and accidentally both were from 1984,a very good year for the ex-Yu Rock discography.This one is the first album from Momcilo Bajagic-Bajaga,at the time still the guitarist of Riblja Corba.Everyone expected some Hard Rock album like the RC`s,but Bajaga made a collection of funny easy-listening Poppy New-Wave songs.It is a collection of songs that Bajaga first offered to RC,but the leader Bora Djordjevic refused them all,and that was also one of the reasons Bajaga left RC soon after.A nice album,bringing me some nice memories,and almost a must for all of you collectors of Yu-Rock records.
Tracks: 01.Berlin 02.Mali slonovi 03.Poljubi me 04.Limene trube 05.Znam coveka 06.Tekila gerila 07.Marlena 08.Kosooka 09.Tamara 10.Pustite me druze 11.Papaline
As I announced to you,here is the third one-man-band from Pula,and the second from Bolesno Grinje (haha,and what about Rio??).This is BG`s bassist Hoc solo album (he have the "solo" name in the same vein as his bandmate Jule,he just inverted his nickname.),and it is a very nice Punk/HC collection of songs.I am totally proud of those two guys,who are holding the Pula`s name very high.And,of course,can`t wait next weekend to meet Bolesno Grinje in Novi Marof,Yeah!!Enjoy this stuff,man!
Tracks: 01.C.O.H. 02.Reason 03.Cop on my back 04.Live your fucking life 05.Work till death 06.Headless stories 07.No more dickheads 08.Punch drunk 09.Bitter taste 10.Last march before retreat
