Knür hail from Molins De Rei, a municipality near Barcelona, Spain they are a melodic crust/neocrust band and here's their first st recording, available in bandcamp. The band recorded eleven songs and forty (40!) minutes of melodic crust and they managed to deliver the goods: There's great guitar work with nice leading guitar parts and melodic lines, there's the appropriate percentage of metal in here, there's fast pace in all songs with some midpaced emotional parts, screamed/yelled vocals and lyrics in Spanish (a transalation in English in bandcamp would be great). There is some variety with differenr paces in songs, mith more or less metallic hints etc and this make the recording interesting. Knür do not reinvent the wheel of melodic crust but they deliver a decent piece of crust, sometimes mournful and epic and sometimes angry neocrust. I didn't see any physical copies, this is probably only available in digital format in bandcamp. Give it a listening



Anti-Diktatur-Demo Live '13 tape

Anti-Diktatur hail from Bogotá, Colombia, the band was created from the need to play music simply basic but well made; we are influenced mainly by the finnish punk, the scandinavian hardcore and the mountain punk of the "developing" world. Incl. members of Pütchi, Maniatikatz and Amor & Rabia.  Demo Live '13 is a seven track demo and as the title says it was live recorded and this is obvious from the raw sound quality. There are six tracks in bandcamp but you can get the complete seven track demo in a download link. along with artwork.  What the band can deliver is revealed in Identitad, a track recently recorded with much better sound quality

B.E.D.A. the one man army based in the bogs and barren wastelands of Belarus is back with one more release this time consisting of thirteen tracks of raw punk. I have posted almost everything this guy recorded (here) apart from his latest split with Abominations All Over. Anyway, Misantrawpunk comes as cd and delivers raw and primitive D-beat, the kind of noise that was create during the latest B.E.D.A. releases. Totally distorted guitars and bass, D-beat drums and acid vocals in native language (there is translation in English in bandcamp).Mis antrawpunk was released by Evil Punk Records, a diy label run by the B.E.D.A. guy and is available in bandcamp too

Bombardement hail from Bordeaux, France and this is their debute demo tape, the band includes former and current members of Warning//Warning, Gasmask Terrör, Monarch and others. The tape consists of eight track incl. a Meanwhile cover, well mutilated and delivers female fronted D-beat punk at its finest having its roots in the Why? and Hear Nothing, See Nothing, Say Nothing era of Discharge. This is fuckin great tape!. You can contact the band via bandcamp (i didn't see any other page) and order a copy, All songs of demo are available there for streaming. I don't need to type more bullshit, go and listen it.


Wørsen-Promo tape 2016

Wørsen come from Florida, United States, they are a blackened crust act (don't confuse them with Worsen from North Carolina) and this is their two track promo tape. Wørsen is a new band, formed in 2014 and apart from this promo they have a rehearsal available in bandcamp (here),  the two promo tracks will be part of an upcoming release titled Grand Sceme on Deadtank Records and Popnihil Records. Music wise they deliver raw and primitive black metal orienteted crust/blackened D-beat crust, the extreme noise we all know from Iskra. This is furious and chaotic, raw as hell. This is available in bandcamp too




Timekiller come from Brazil and Stagnant is their third release after Bleed Out (posted here) and their split with Deaf Kids. The band was formed by people who were in bands such as Deaf Kids, Drone Throne, Prosthetics and Speed Kills and include also a US guy who's currently living in Brazil. "We play a very fuzzed-out and distorted style of hardcore which draws influenced from oldschool speed metal as well as from japanese and scandanavian hardcore". Stagnant consists of six songs of distorted crust and noise punk with echoed vocals, a style familiar to raw punk bands, There are a few hinTs of Motorhead influences but not in the level of previous releases. Not bad at all. This is available in bandcamp along with all Timekiller releases



Kriminal-Demo 2016

"Kriminal is a new Berlin based D-Beat/HC-Punk Band(not really any Crust in here but i think it somehow fits on you Page) with ex and current members of Nocturnal Scum, Instinct of Survival, Countdown to Armageddon, Guided Cradle, Endrophobia,....). Musik is best described as fast HC-Punk influenced by Swedish HC (Totalitär/Anti Cimex)as well as State of Fear and Consume and with occasional RocknRoll Riffs thrown in here and there."
This was the mail i received from Lasesie and more or less describes this demo: Six tracks and ten minutes of filthy D-beat driven punk with crust hints incorporating the hardcore parts of Totalitär and early Anti Cimex with the power and crustcore rage of Consume and State of Fear. This is something different from these guys considerng their past in stenchcore and crust bands. Available in bandcamp.



Instinto-Dimonis lp

Instinto strike again with their second release titled Dimonis after their st lp from 2012(posted here), as you know Instinto include people who are/were involved in bands such as Totälickers, Afganistan Yeye’s, Infäme, Disundead,  Hijxs Taradxs and others. Dimonis comes out as vinyl on a co-operation of labels (Grita o Muere Rec.s, Hysterical Rec.s, Svoboda Rec.s, Guerilla Vinyl, Pandora Rec.s ) and as cassette on Bloodsoaked Records, The record comes with great artwork and consists of eight songs of crust punk incorporating Tragedy and From Ashes Rise with Wolfbrigade there is a high level of quality in everything, from guitar work and melodic lines to rhythm section and from the shouted vocals to the sound quality of recording. There is a metal feeling in guitar and adds some more heaviness, the melodies are emotional, there are some mid paced metallic parts giving air and breath. There is no any weak moment here, not filler songs, the band delivers the crust goods in every song, some times the whole thing reminds me of the old local heroes Etacarinae. All and all this is a great record with nothing to complain about. if you are into the aforementioned bands then walk in, if you are not then walk in too cause this is raging melodic crustat its finest. The band offers the record in bandcamp and staying true to the diy ethics provides a download link for the listener in case the limit of 200 free downloads per month is reached. There is also a youtube vid provided by the band too.



Victim of Fire-Become ash

Victim of Fire is one of those bands who are so fucking good and when you start listening them you stop when the last song ends, thats happened to me. Hailing from Denver Colorado, they started as studio project of Austin M who plays all instruments and sings in some songs while two other guys sing in the rest tracks, so this could be considered as one man band. Music wise they might fool you because of the cover artwork but their noise has nothing to do with Oi!, US hardcore or any other shit: They deliver powerful D-beat crust having its roots in the legacy of early Disfear, and a lees melodic version of Wolfbrigade, Tragedy and such bands: Become Ash consists of ten songs of fast paced D-beat crust with shouted roygh vocals in the genre's tradition, the three vocalists make the whole thing more interesting, some melodic lines pop up here and there but are rough enough so the result doesn't sound cheesy and is far to call it metallic crust or neo-crust or whatever, this is pure crust with scandi hardcore influences.All and all this is very good cosnidering the fact that there is one man behind all instruments, Austin also tracked, mixed, mastered the songs. This is currently available in bandcamp, there's also a youtube vid.



Wärfear-st demo tape

Wärfear hail from Malaysia and they are are another great band i recently discovered after Braincell and Krigssystemet, There is no any site around, nor farcebook page, the only thing i know is that members are/were in Antiprotokol, Melarat, Kerenaneko, Osmantikos and Grin(d)amage. (thanx Altar Aksara!), anyway the band first unleashed three songs from their demo in bandcamp and recently they uploaded the fourth song (guys please upload the fifth track, please!) The five songs were recorded in April 2016, the demo will come out as cassette but no infos about how many copies, what label(s) there is (are) behind etc, And we reach to the crucial point: the music.Braincell and their Doom worship was a nice surprise to me some months ago, now Wärfear and their Wolfpack worship deliver some great crust tunes and deliver the goods too. Blasting riffs with metallic feeling, rough shouting vocals, pummeling bass and the usual D-beat. The sound is decent, the whole shit reminiscent of Wolfpack, Wolfbrigade and Tragedy: Powerful crust with melodic lines that make it interesting with out becoming cheesy and shitty. As conclusion: This is a hell of crust and a great debute demo tape. The cassette consists of five songs and just came out, in case you want a copy, there is a contact address in bandcamp, in the meantime you can listen the demo in bandcamp, enjoy it.



Bömbärdeo/Total Silence-War is a black hole to mankind split cd

War is a black hole to mankind is a split cd with two bands well known to the frequenters of this blog since works of both bands are posted here. Bömbärdeo from Chile and Total Silence from Brazil team up and bring six songs (three tracks for each band) of pure D-beat. Bömbärdeo contribute two own songs and one Disclose cover and once again they deliver the goods: Their old school D-beat is just fine, noisy and full of anger and wrath, this is simillar to their recording for the split with D.H.K. the cover of Smell of rotten corpse is excellent and stands equal to the original. Total Silence and Guile bring the D-beat he developed in War Graves and so good in Mass Death And Sorrow, great effort and simillar to Besthöven's noize. Guile's tour in Chile with the addition of two members on bass and drums (as we know Total Silence is one man band) was the reason for this split cd, these songs are going to appear in a split 7" with Brafcharge from South Africa. All and all this is a honest and nice effort from some guys who love D-beat, there is a download link provided by the bands (thanx Asti!), check also the bandcamp pages, the cd was released by Eskaramuza distro, No War Rec, Backpack Recs and Spiral DIYscos

Toxicology-Discredit The Badge & Paid By the Kill demos

i know Toxicology since they unleashed the three track Shellshock from Birth demo back in 2013, they come from Fairlawn, New Jersey and their first recording was a grind/crust blast with rough vocals, all out political lyrics, D-beat drumming and shreading guitar riffs, in ther next recordings Discredit The Badge (2016) & Paid By the Kill (2015), the band moved into more brutal and grinding pathways and transformed into a grindcore band influenced by Excruciating Terror, Infest, Napalm Death, Repulsion, Siege, Nasum, Rotten Sound Disrupt,etc D-beat parts stilll exist but the whole thing is wayyyy more brutal, there are four tracks in each of the last demos incl, a re-recording of Inherited manslaughter which first appeared in Shellshock from Birth, All and all this stuff is brutal and atrocious, no need to say anything else. All demos are available in bandcamp.

Disaxis-Life ep

Disaxis is one of the few bands who have myspace page during 2016, instead farcebook or ReverbNation or blog or whatever. Oh come one man! get rid off this impractical crappy shit! (ok ok there is a tumbrl page, here) The band is one man project from St Thomas, Ontario, Canada and this is the debute recording, released in autumn of 2015. Life consists of seven tracks of D-beat with sick black metal-ish vocals and the simplicity of music reminiscent of greek D-beaters Doomed Again with the addition of a few crust parts in guitar riffs here and there. The prons of Life are the guitar riffs, the decent sound and some nice lyrics, the cons are the lack of variety in singing and drum beat since all songs walk in simillar pace but what the hell, repetitiveness is the main accusation against such bands so just ignore the cons.. Anyway this is good effort and hope to hear more from that guy, Life is available in bandcmp along with the lyrics.



Disacusia-Tripalium ep

Disacusia come from João Pessoa- PB, Brazil and Tripalium is their debute ep, recently uploaded in bandcamp. As usual i know nothing about the band since their mail was "Hello! We are Disacusia band of the city of João Pessoa- PB, Brazil !  We launched our first official material", music wise they deliver Crust D-beat with metallic flavor, i know this sounds generic but thats what they deliver, sometimes they remind of their Brazilian crusties Barrikaadi from Bello Horizonte with a slightly more brutal apporach to music because of the grindcore hints that pop up sometimes. The ep is available in bandcamp, check them in farcebook, twitter, soundcloud and instargram..
 And a little trivia:Tripalium is an instrument of torture involving three stakes


Cloaca/Recidive-split tape/7"
