Sodom – Demonized (2017)

image2image1

I ❤️ Sodom! And the Witching Metal demo from 1982 is an old favorite of mine. I was very happy, when I got the news that Floga Records was about to release an lp with the Witching Metal demo and also the Victims Of Death demo from 1984.

This is a great release, and a must have for the connoisseur of early thrash. Enough said, go get it!!

Autopsy – Mental Funeral

34162533372_7756853b1b_o

I quite vividly remember when this lp was released. I already knew Autopsy’s first lp Severed Survival, and liked it. So it was with great enthusiasm I put this lp on my record player. I think it was my friend Morten Lose who bought it and brought it to my tiny flat in Hundegade in Ribe. So there we were, in a house built in 1588, listening to what seemed like a brand new form of death metal. I wasn’t prepared for a sound so filthy and uncompromising. The song Dead is still among my eternal favorites. The song structures are strange and twisted compared to the death metal that preceded it. This is for me still the ultimate soundtrack for a trip to the deepest pits of Hell. Dirty!! DIRTY!!!!

I have lost count of (never had it, really) how many times I’ve listened to this. But it wasn’t until 2003 I got around to buy it, so I could lay my dubbed cassette to rest. At that point I bought it on cd, but hooray! Today I finally got it on lp. And it’s an absolute pleasure to listen to.

Sedem Minút Strachu ‎– General Fucking (2017)

fil-02-02-2017-16-12-35

This is a record you want, if you are at all into noisy stuff. Sedem Minút Strachu – or Seven Minutes of Fear – is the shit for me these days.

This 12″ will no doubt be a classic of the genre.

Final Exit – Another (S)hits Of Old Vinyls (cd 2014)

Final Exit - Another (S)hits Of Old Vinyls

It’s all about Final Exit these days. I just got this cd in the mail today, 12 tracks of the Final Exit bits of various split releases. Very catchy and intense stuff here. Sound is brutal, and the playing too. And I mustn’t forget to mention the one minute long feedback that opens the cd. Goddammit I hate high notes, but here it has it’s place. Of the recordings here, I only knew the split with Gonkulator previously.

Super funny fast and noisy stuff here. Go get this baby! Yeah!

Final Exit – Middle Aged Stinking Cowboys 7″

Final Exit - Middle Aged Stinking Cowboys 7

Final Exit – Middle Aged Stinking Cowboys 7″

This is one of the best things that happened record wise last year. It’s just a 7″ record – single sided even, but crammed full of western themed noise and groovy country.

Final Exit are a great Japanese band, and after stumbling over this on my facebook stream, I have hunted down some other goodies from them. This record is released on The Child With No Name and Fat Ass Records. I can only urge you to visit both labels’ sites, as there are multiple goodies there!

No Trust – Heavy Hand (digital, 2016)

a0119549908_10I just had eye surgery, I had my lens removed in the right eye and got a shiny new artificial one. Now I see HD. It was a bad case of cataract. My friend Patrick Gresham, recommended this album as medication for the pain. And I really like it a lot. Powerful death metal, with some of the rougher vocals I’ve heard in a good while.

I suggest you go have a peek at No Trust on their bandcamp (link below).
