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.
Now, this is an interesting post I found on my colleague`s Aktivista`s beautiful blog "Zvuci Jugoslavije".
This was a Metal gig held at the Barutana hall in Belgrade in 2002., including three Serbian Metal bands.The recording is an audience one, but still good enough.There are no song titles, sorry..
Abonos plays some Gothic-Metal, personally not my kind of Metal, especially with female voice..but a fairly played set.Alogia plays some Power-Epic-Metal and does it very very good.And there is also Kraljevski Apartman (the follow up to the already posted Apartman 69) with their Hard Rock/Metal..so,this should be a very nice piece for the collectors.
Ok, let`s go on with some Croatian Thrash..My mighty contributor Mika from Hope gave me this stuff and a lot more, and everything will be posted within some time.First of all, here is a good old band from Pozega, Amen.They played the bigger part of the 90s and then disappeared, but a member Miroslav continued composing and playing hard, so he continued recording demos with the help of a rhythm program, and so here is the first recording he did in 2005.This one is a full album of old school Thrash Metal with mostly Christian lyrics (which fits me very well!). Enjoy this one, and stay tuned for the next demos!!
Tracks: 01.False belief 02.Buried alive 03.Faith 04.Fallen world 05.(Don`t be) Condemned for eternity 06.Dead dream 07.Face the God 08.Jesus 09.L.S.D. 10.Monument of blood
Sinisa Vuco f++king rules!!I mean, you would kill to have a guy like this in your country..Sinisa Vuco is the spiritus-movens of Quick Sand, the english version of his band Zivo Blato (go back on this blog for their first album) , and surely a very provocative person and artist.Guitarist and vocalist (and probably author of everything you hear on this album), he is actually the guy who played in one of the first Croatia`s Thrash Metal bands Evil Blood in the 80s,and then continues his carreer as an extremely successful turbo-folk singer (????) but always returning to his Metal roots.This record is a Metal version of what he do usually.Just listen to "Love and drinking" (his biggest hit originally called "Volim Piti i Ljubiti"), absofuckinglutely hilarious.Of course, don`t get it too serious..
PS:Here are few videos to describe him better:
from a late-night tv show NIGHTMARE STAGE (in croatian, sorry) when a viewer provoked him on the telephone..this is anthologic!!!
as a folk singer:
and live on stage with Zivo Blato:
Tracks: 01.Help me America 02.Endless number 03.Woman 04.Tale from the Balcans 05.Love and drinking 06.Merry Christmass 07.Exploding sky
