Eluj "Eva Ti Mi Pomažeš Više Nego Bog "

Every country has few cities that produce tons of great bands. For Croatia, Pula is one of them and surely is my personal favourite.
That is where this band comes from. If you're not Croatian you're probably wondering why is this guy's picture instead of the album cover.
First of all this is web only release from Monte Paradiso Netlabel, and second - this is one man band since Jule, the man from the photo, (band name is his name backwards) recorded everything by himself.
Monte Paradiso Netlabel is a part of Pula's Monte Paradiso collective and they make Monte Paradiso hardcore punk festival for more than 15 years. They also run an autonomous cultural center and have released a lot of stuff from bands from pula and Netlabel is just next step where you can download out of print and never to be physically released stuff for free. Check it out.
And Jule is person cursed with inability to make bad music. This stuff was never recorded by his former band
Anti-Otpad (who are my all-time favourite Croatian hcpunk) so he did it himself. After the break-up of Anti-Otpad he played in punk rockin' machine called Barrakuda and now is destroying our ears in grindcore monster called Bolesno Grinje (which is half Anti-Otpad BTW). Be sure to check them out. They have four albums released in Mexico and USA, one split LP released by Croatian label and them and an EP on Netlabel. Pure dirty oldschool grindcore as it is meant to be.
Here you can see Eluj video (that is cut off in the end for some strange reason). There's some Bolesno Grinje videos too on their site.

If you're coming to Pula, try to come during the first weekend in august 'cause that's when Monte Paradiso is held every year.
