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 – 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!

Blue Holocaust / Embryonic Cryptopathia ‎– Blue Holocaust / Embryonic Cryptopathia (7″ split 2008)

IMG_4407IMG_4408

I learned about this ep on facebook, where one of my contacts hyped it. I got it in the mail today, and I must say that this is a fine slab of wax. Gory noisy heavy grind very much in the vein of my tastes.

Go get this fucker!!

Lärm – Straight On View (LP 1986)

IMG_4118IMG_4119

Fuck… Where do I even begin… I think I heard about Lärm back in 1987, and bought the lp by mail order from Rock Uglen that same year. Unfortunately the record had suffered in the mail and had cracked from the center to the edge, so I had to record it to cassette before it was totally destroyed. So for many years I lived with a cassette with a noticable crack every time the lp had revolved. I had the iconic cover pinned to my wall.

I think it was through Napalm Death interviews that I learned about Lärm. Their speedy hardcore was hyped by many a band at that time, and since I was heavily into fast bands like Wehrmacht and Cryptic Slaughter I was rather stoked to hear Lärm. And I wasn’t disappointed!

Their fast punk music has followed me throughout the years, first on that shitty cassette, then on the discographic cd Extreme Noise which unfortunately omitted the live tracks from side B of the Straight On View lp.

And now. Finally. 30 years after the release, and 29 years after I received my broken lp in the mail, I have gotten my hands on another copy.

My old band Sardonic Death wrote a song called Terror Lärm in homage to Lärm, and my current band Kusari Gama Kill has released an EP with the same title.

Gruesome – Dimensions Of Horror (2016)

IMG_3854

Oh yes indeedy! This is some classic old school death metal in the vein of Scream Bloody Gore. I’m just finishing my second listen, and I’m very satisfied!

Get this before it’s sold out. As for Gruesome – I suspect they’ll never sell out!

Heh, seems like I inadvertently almost quoted my review of their LP Savage Land here…
