Tracks:  8

Genre:   rock
Style:   Ska   Rock   Punk

One day searching for nothing in particular in internet I found this rare compilarion with 8 basque bands such as: Baldin Bada, Balerdi Balerdi, Futs Indar (ex-Delirium Tremens), Lin Ton Taun, Patagonia, Pottoka and Txarrena. So musical styles and sounds typically of the basque youth: ska, punk and rock. Maybe the song more curious is of FUTS INDAR the ex-singer of the 80s popular band DELIRIUM TREMENS, but the band only recorded 2 tracks.

Label:  Roadrunner rec.
Format:  CD
Tracks: 9
Time: 34 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:   Thrash Metal

Formed in 1985, British thrashers Xentrix (pronounced Zen-tricks) began their careers by playing metal covers before focusing all of their efforts on coming up with original material. Initially known as Sweet Vengeance, guitarist/vocalist Chris Astley, guitarist Kristian Havard, drummer Dennis Gasser and bassist Paul Mackenzie created enough of a stir through their live performances that the English branch of Roadrunner Records took notice and signed the group in January 1989.Xentrix like Sacred Reich were / are of rare and very few metal bands which have social conscious and demonstrates a relative importance related to social injustices, war crimes, etc. Besides musically they are fast and technically, and the disk enjoy with a high quality level. A rare band in the realm of gore, bondage, terror, etc.

"Live at the Vortex"
Year:  1977
Country:  UK
City:  London
Label:  Nems rec.
Format:  LP
Tracks:  12
Time:  33 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:   Punk  Rock

Recorded live At The Vortex, 203 Wardour Street, London W1. On October 10th & 11th 1977. Well, it appears that the file sharing panic has at least partially subsided for now, so I guess we’ll toss up a few records.  As I said before, I fully intend to reactivate all the old downloads and I even plan on having it done by the end of the month if possible.  Anyone found anything decent out there besides Rapidshare? Can’t say as I’m too thrilled about using them again, as I’ve already dumped them once and I don’t trust them.  I’ve also heard they’ve been messing up a lot due to the high volume of new accounts.    So here we have a record I meant to post a long time ago and forgot about, a disc that possibly falls into what I referred to as “used bin regulars”, of which I posted many when I first started this blog.  Apparently, it got some bad press and developed a bad reputation when it came out, leading it to be more or less disregarded for whatever reason.  And who’s to say?  Maybe it deserved it.  So does it suck? By no means!  It is a decent representation of Class of 1977 Punk, recorded live with decent sound.  I think the reason it was initially pooh-poohed is because it’s pretty much a stereotypical display of Punk standards of the time, which is fine with me and the rest of the indiscriminate fans of generic Punk schlock.  My personal pick would be that last track by Maniacs—such a fine sentiment, so rarely seen or properly expressed these days.  But, sorry, buddy; you’re history!

https://ia802502.us.archive.org/19/items/sodsodsodsod/sod.jpg"Speak english or die"
Year:  1985
Country:   US
City:  New York
Label:  Roadrunner rec.
Format:  CD
Tracks:  33
Time:  50 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:   Hardcore , Thrash

S.O.D. (Stormtroopers Of Death), formed in New York in 1985. They are commonly credited as being among the first bands to fuse hardcore punk with thrash metal into a new sound dubbed crossover thrash. They have also been the victim of controversy due to their utterly politically-incorrect lyrics. However, Dan Lilker has stated that “The lyrics were never intended to be serious, just to piss people off.”    Stormtroopers Of Death includes the famous Billy Milano (M.O.D.) on vocals, Scott Ian on guitar and Charlie Benante on drums (both of Anthrax fame). Also, bassist Dan Lilker has been in many other underground metal bands, including Brutal Truth, Nuclear Assault, Exit-13 and early Anthrax among others.     S.O.D. don’t always write songs to anger, but often pen lyrics to amuse. For instance, in response to their (misconstrued) earlier lyrics, S.O.D. wrote the politically-correct (and Agnostic Front-esque) We All Bleed Red: a track that condemns racists and racism. Also, S.O.D. include healthy doses of humor for the metal fan, poking fun at Slayer (Seasoning the Obese), Celtic Frost (Celtic Frosted Flakes), and King Diamond/Mercyful Fate (King at the King/Evil Is In). The cover to Bigger Than the Devil is a tribute to the classic Number of the Beast by Iron Maiden.
