Old Funeral - Devoured Carcass ep - 1991



Old Funeral was one of the first bands to form in the Norwegian extreme metal scene, getting its start in 1988. By 1992 the band had already dissolved, but since some of the former band members (such as Abbath and Demonaz of Immortal, and Varg Vikernes of Burzum) are now quite famous, Old Funeral has also gained recognition.[1] Among their influences were Carcass (UK) and Morbid Angel (US). - Wikipedia

01 - Haunted
02 - Devoured Carcass
03 - Incantation

Genocide SS - Another Fucking ep - 1997



The first Genocide SS 7" and a raging slab of Swedish D-Beat Crust. Lack of song titles for the A-Side is interesting, the B-Side is covers of Antiseen and Nancy Sinatra.

World Burns To Death - Black Becomes The Sun 7" - 2009



I always found World Burns To Death's 7" records to be a bit of a let down compared to their killer LP's but this ep has two great tracks that continue on from the punishment dished out on "Graveyard of Utopia". Wikipedia has all the intel needed on these guys.

01 - The War Can Go On Forever
02 - Black Becomes The Sun

The Varukers - Nothings Changed ep - 1994



This was the Varukers sort of come back ep in 1994 after some lengthy down time. It's a great ep and features a nice change of pace on the track "Missing Out". I saw these guys here in NZ last year and it was one of my favorites of the year.

01 - Nothings Changed
02 - Obey
03 - Tortured By Their Lies
04 - Missing Out

Christian Mistress - Mother Of Mercy 7"



Awesome female fronted Heavy Metal that will have you tapping your foot, throwing the horns and wanting more!!

01 - Mother Of Mercy
02 - The Hereafter

Reality Crisis - No Fate/G.I.P.D ep



Raging Japanese D-Beat Punk, less in the E.N.T vein than their previous records but you can still hear them as a major influence. Great little record this.

01 - No Fate
02 - G.I.P.D.
