STAY HUNGRY - Against The Wall

Location: Göteborg, Sverige
Release: Green Menace, 2010


Último post 2010. Pra quem achou que o ano já tinha acabado e fez suas listas de melhores antes da hora, te digo uma coisa: STAY HUNGRY!

"Use your... USE YOUR HEAD
You fucking pricks, your memory's short,
you forgot what Ian said

I've seen you drain this scene of substance,
of what it was made of
Replacing it with status quo, the very evil
we were to rise above
A tough façade, a radical front,
I call your bluff

Use your... USE YOUR HEAD
You shallow bastards, your memory's short,
you forgot what Henry said"

MOTHER SPEED / TAKE IT BACK - Split Tape

Location: U.S. / Indonesia
Release: Yakuzzi Tapes, 2010

First edition of Yakuzzi worldwide thrash split series with Mother Speed from US and Take It Back from Indonesia, but this is not necessarily thrash metal, is more towards A.N.S. and Seasick type of rock 'n' roll music.

There are 3 things indonesians are obsessed with: thrash, insane artwork and the other thing would probably be noodles, but the fact is they are good at it!! Speaking of such, note that mother speed dude is rockin' out with his cock out (Yikes!) Despite their naughtiness the track entitled Altered Beast is a BLAST!!

WORLD GONE MAD - S/T

Location: België / Netherlands
Release: TrueTillDeaf/PowerTrip Records, 2009
Artwork: Marco Albularach

A stupendous debut release by these flemish fellows. 6 tracks of hard-hit-NY-metallic-the-way-papa-like-it hardcore music. I played this record over and over..

It was tremendously difficult to find it in mp3. I purchased the LP but it didn't come with a download card, so I ripped their myspace (:/) and here's World Gone Mad!
Members played in several other hardcore acts, such as BLADE, Break and Enter, Cheap Thrills, etc.. check 'em up!!

Unfortunately, they already quit, a 2nd album would be very appreciated.

WHERE I STAND - Demo

Location: Massachusetts 
Release: D.I.Y., 2009

Another finding on myspace, great demo here by these north-american youngsters. 6 tracks of vibrant fast paced hardcore. Their website has no updates since january '09, so I assume they are already done, shame.

FFO: Outbreak, Horror Show, Trash Talk.
