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 another request I had here, this is a Croatian band that was active at the end of the 80s/first few years of the 90s, and was part of the Slusaj Najglasnije production roster. Incidentally, other bands from the same label had more success, so here is this album grabbed from the past.The music is a kind of alternative Punk/HC/New Wave Garage Rock (now I told you all, right?) , however very loud and aggressive.
Tracks: 01.Noc 02.Covjek 03.Ona 04.Jurica 05.Kako bih 06.Ravno se drzi 07.Stvarnost 08.Lica 09.On 10.Heroji 11.Svjetlost 12.Zagreb
I am sorry I don`t have no pics for this band or this post, but anyway it is a request from you, so here we go.Here are recordings from one of my favourite ex-yu HC band, Proces from Subotica.Don`t blame me if the recordings are not of the highest quality, but that is all I have found, and Proces is a band that I really want to have here on my blog, to show the world we (the ex-Yu territory) really had some very very competitive bands making great music, but living in the wrong country..or maybe not? Enjoy Proces.
Tracks: 01.Nemojte misliti da se slazem 02.Iluzije 03.Bejrut `83 04.Subotica 05.Boja 06.Blues 07.Mrtvi zivoti 08.Tragovi
Ok, we are running to the end of this year, and I want to leave you in great mood for the next year, so I will be posting today more stuff for you to enjoy until our next meeting, which may be already tomorrow, but that is already next year, so.. Gruuthagy displayed the list of releases he did throughout the years, and believe me, you will rarely find a band/project so active as this one..This is one of the numerous recording he did (I am talking about HE, because it is well known that Gruuthagy is KKTZ and vice versa) and it is a usual weird mixture of music, very aggressive and direct.More to follow, of course..
Tracks: 01.Astral suicide 02.Viva la morte 03.Praise thee lucifire 04.A bullet from beyond 05.Scavenger U.S.A. 06.Take your time and die
This is a Bosnian band which is very popular in the region, playing a kind of Thrash Metal with a strong retro feeling.I don`t like them much, the band with a vocalist who talks (he don`t sing or scream or whatever, he just talks??!!) is not a challenge, the music is excellent, and has a great production, but the vocal tears it all down.They remind me a lot to Bombarder, and you know my feelings about Bombarder, so here is almost the same.I saw them few years ago live as support to Tankard, and it was a great set, with the crowd going totally crazy..if you separate the vocal, the rest is great.
Tracks: 01.Psujevjerje 02.Nevjerovanje 03.Pijandura 04.Nesto ostro zabodeno u glavu 05.Totalno me zbuni 06.Retrogradni pervertit 07.Pren´jelo ga bijelo 08.Napola lud 09.Demonsko opelo 10.Hibernaut 11.Navadili se na rovca 12.Slovo se 13.Na kraju krajeva
At War was a great band, one of the underrated bands of the "heavier" Metal scene.This is their first demo dated 1985, excellent production and great stuff here, a band that surely deserved a higher position in the Metal scene back in the 80s.Well, they play again now, but you have to start from the beginning.
Oh, yeah, this is surely pure old-school European Thrash Metal, and plus played someway harsh and unprecise, but very loud and Thrashy.This is also an old request, and I am glad I can fulfill your wishes.For old-school metalheads strictly!
Tracks: 01.Prodrome 02.Speed kills 03.The howling 04.Blind obediance 05.Voyage of the damned 06.The knell-Thanatos 07.Obsequies
This beauty is an ep of pure NWOBHM made in Sweden! Actually it is the band of a guy with Croatian roots, Andrija Veljaca (R.I.P.) which also sings on this mini-lp, and this is the only release with him on vocals, on the next full lenght album the vocals will be taken by Messiah Marcolin, who will -after ending the story with Mercy- become the protective sign of Candlemass..enjoy this classic!
Tracks: 01.State of shock 02.Don`t stop Heavy guitar 03.Heavy sound 04.Lost in time 05.Stranger in the dark
Here`s another New Wave Punk band from Pula, as you may have noticed Pula was very crowded with bands by the end of the 80s, this is a band that lived shortly and thank God an audible evidence remained.And here it is..thank Vladimir for this!
Tracks: 01.7000 ljudi 02.Previse zvuka 03.Sestra 04.Ustanak
Alright, here is a band that I never liked, for many reasons, but mostly because Doom Metal and Stoner Rock (Black Sabbath included!!) were never my favourite, and I can count on half of one hand the Doom bands I like..but, it is a request by some of you, so here it is, by kind courtesy of Kktz from Corpus Delicti blog, the last promo tape this band did before they disbanded.There was already their EP here, and a live track on one compilation, so we miss just their promo 1993.Meanwhile, throw yourself into desperation and depression with this one, if you enjoy that..
Now, this is a really very interesting band from the mid 90s.They were a group of French anarchists playing an interesting kind of Industrial Punk with a drum machine (and here they remind me of the slovenian Strelnikoff), but their live shows (saw them 3 times in Pula) were a 130 minutes performances, an incredible voyage through human pain and suffering, involving most of the time the audience (and also provoking incidents with the closeminded ones) .. I cannot transmit the feeling of being at one of their shows, but here is the musical part of it, and down there is the video (I have the complete show on video, just too lazy to cut it into clips) from a gig held in Slovenia, so judge yourself.Great band.
