Syudan Jisatsu - Demon Priest ep - 1991



Heavy Jap Punk in the vein of G.I.S.M. It's even been rumoured that Sakevi did the vocals on this and it's not too difficult to see why. Great ep.

01 - Chaos Rider
02 - Muster Up Violence
03 - Devil Dance
04 - Black Father

Healter Skelter Records.

Death Dust Extractor - Slay Your Masters Or Slave In Chains ep - 2009



Death Dust Extractor from Japan lay waste of this ep. Heavy fast Crust. Packaging was a little on the minimal side but the music is another story all together. The last track is bizarre.

01 - Slave In Chains
02 - ...
03 - Mind
04 - Tomorrow-2
05 - Ego Is Horrendous
06 - Intro
07 - Slave System
08 - Brian Killer (Death Killer)
09 - Untitled

Crust War

Bristles D.C - Free The Prisoners ep - 1986



Snotty punk from Sweden circa 1986. You can almost see the singer sneering when he's laying the vocals down. Catchy.

01 - Troops Of Today
02 - Lonely
03 - Coming Back

Rosa Honung Records.

Crucial Section - Against The Wind ep - 2008



Damn fine ep from these Japanese Thrashers. A nice fat production makes this ep just shred. I much prefer this over their full length from a few years back.

I'm pretty sure the vinyl version has sold out now but there is a CD version available so contact them below and grab yourself one.

01 - Against The Wind

03 - Conviction

05 - Result And Process
06 - Long Working Hours

Zyanose - Loveless ep - 2009



Japan's Zyanose with 4 tracks of noisy chaos punk on the A-Side and then they throw a spanner in the works with a 7 minute long track on the B-Side (Voice Of Youth) which just goes on and fucking on but it kind of works.

01 - Future
02 - Parasite
03 - Media
04 - Loathe
05 - Voice Of Youth

In Cahoots - Demo CDR - 2009 - New Zealand

In Cahoots started as a flat band based out of Wellington, initially with the plan of playing a single show and putting out a tape before Lizard left. Influenced by a bit of pop punk, a bit of hardcore and a big nod at whatever was being played on the stereo at the time.
This is the tape which finally got released, 8 months and a fistful of shows later. (Ben)

I'll add that this has got that old school feel to it, like a rabid version of Regulations with a bit of Vitamin X shoved in there for good measure.

Good shit.

Get the fucker here.

No Idea - Class War 12" - 1985 - New Zealand

No Idea were a Punk/Oi band from Christchurch from the early to mid 80's who released this 12" and a Tape called "Wotsoever". I'm not a history buff but I love their two releases and this 12" has the awesome "Rugger Bugger". I do prefer the more raw sound they had on the cassette but fuck me this is classic New Zealand Punk fucking Rock. They were the forerunners of the second wave on NZ punk along with the likes of Flesh D-Vice, Armatrak, Five Year Mission and Compos Mentis.

No Idea formed in April '83 in Palmerston North & then moved to CHCH Feb'84. Their tape was released on 6th August 1984. & 12" 21st Oct 1985. (thanks Simon for the information)

01 - Class War
02 - Get It Together
03 - Wotever
04 - Object
05 - Rugger Bugger
06 - Like You
07 - Kick Down That Wall

Jayrem Records.

Tentacles Of Destruction - Demo CDR - 2006 - New Zealand

The Tentacles hail from Auckland and have been around for a fair few years now and are one of the few New Zealand punk bands to play overseas. They played in San Francisco and France a couple of years ago. Their sound is very Youthcore inspired thrash punk with a healthy dose of old school US punk/hardcore ala Jerry's Kids or Battalion Of Saints. This is their first demo and captures their initial raw sound well. They have tightened up their sound these days and have a more rocking groove going on.

01 - Intro
02 - Roadkill
03 - Angsty Teen
04 - Red Squad
05 - Lives For Sale
06 - Do The Tentacle
07 - Louie Louie
08 - Bonus Track

02 - The Tribe I Claim
03 - Ahora Mas Que Nunca
