Deformed Conscience "Constant Strife" 7"

I'm not gonna write their history. To see that go to their MySpace. I'm just gonna say that this is the way to play crust and this is surely one of my favourite records of 90s. This is released on their own label Adversity Records and cover artwork for this 7" is done by THE artist for your crust records - Marald (who was then known as Shitface). He also did shitloads of drawings for other stuff, but you already know that.
After you listen to this go to Unrest Records and buy discography double LP "Hagen Days" which they released in 2007 (again with Marald's cover).

AOS3 "Diversionary Tactics"

I had kind of computer/monitor/graphics card crash combined since last weekend and haven't ripped anything, but to make it up, here's one CD rip after a long time. It's another AOS3 release from my last order, since there were quite a few downloads of the last one. This is their second album from now defunct Inna State Records, so if you still wanna buy this, hurry to Southern Records. They still have some of them left. AOS3 split after this album, but last year they reformed and are gigging again and making new album. I hope I won't chew all my nails 'till it comes out. Enjoy.

Crunch "Ran-Core" 7"

This is I believe first release from these longhaired hardcore bunch from Torino, Italy. I've watched them on Monte Paradiso festival in 1995 and their fast music managed to make me and a friend of mine from the state of being dead drunk and nodding to being fully awake and dancing in the front rows. Haven't heard much about them later, but they were really amazing live band. I have two more of their 7"s and they were all released on their TOHC (Torino hardcore) records. Try it and you'll love it.

AOS3 "On A Knight Train" 12"

This came in the last batch of music I've ordered. I thought I was buying an AOS3 single, but this is two remixes of AOS3 songs by Zion Train and Knights Of The Occasional Table (I like the later better). I guess that this won't be downloaded much as this is not where people into electronic music stop by to check out what's new (old). But if you are into it you could like this. Or if you are completist or AOS3 fan like me.

Fun People "The Portrait Of Sudamerican Sun Rockers" LP

Fun People were great (mostly) melodic hardcore band from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I don't wanna go too much about their sound because they go from acoustic ballads (Otro Mundo) to fast hardcore in HHH vein (Boicot Antinaturals). Their musical diversity can be seen in covers on this LP and that are New York Dolls, The Clash and Black Sabbath. All in all really great band that always lifts my spirit and that's always a good thing. Highly recommended.
The guy on the record is Kurt Gustav Wilckens.

Fakofbolan/Dark Busters split LP

If you're croatian you know all about this LP and if you're not, here's some info on it.
Fakofbolan were from Pula and they played probably the greatest singalong punk rock in Croatia ever that filled every club they played. This was their first vinyl release (before this I've only heard one split tape with Confusione Totale (also from Pula), but I don't believe that was a proper release). This stuff was later available as a bonus on CD version of their next album "Jedini Dokaz" (without the booze hymn and a joke featured here). They also had one more album before they split in 2006 after 13 years of playing.
Dark Busters were also from Pula and they played their kind of jazzy hardcore and were really great musicians. At the time of this release these two bands played really a lot (often together). This is their only release as pretty soon after this they changed their name to After Buster Future Beat and played analogue trance music (that'd be with the same "classic" instruments, bass guitar and drums). Later the drummer from DB played for Fakofbolan too (and a lot more other bands including legendary Pula punks "KUD Idijoti").
Look at this as kind of croatian version of Defiance/Raped teenagers split LP. Enjoy.
P.S. Just found out two and a half hours after posting this that Šela, the guy singing Himna Tounju on Fakofbolan side died hit by a car after returning home from
Antifa festival. He was one of those people that always tried to make you laugh and most of the times succeeded. Pula won't be the same without you my friend. This post is for Šela.

Inferno "Hibakusha" LP

This is the second album from this German hardcore punk legends. They were formed in small Bavarian City of Augsburg in 1982 and they relased most of their stuff on singer Howie's label. There's no info on the LP of year when it was released. Some sites say 1985 and some 1986, but I reckon it's the later. I'm a bit lazy now writing about them and I'll just copy/paste text from Destiny records who have re-released all of their stuff on 2CD discography (which you MUST get of course):
In the Mid-80ties INFERNO were a worldwide well known (the most known) Hardcore Band from Germany, especially known in USA, Japan, Brazil,... but also in (former socialist) Yugoslavia, in Australia or Malaysia. The group tours all over Europe, as an active cell of the continental Hardcore-network, a network which reaches from the Basque Country up to Helsinki, from Amsterdam to Athens, from Bristol to Belgrade; Thrash- and Speedmetal-Acts such as Hirax, Slayer, Anthrax or S.O.D name INFERNO as one of their biggest influences in several interviews and features.
Here you can read the interview from Ox Fanzine #73 (in German).

Impact "82-85" LP

This record (as the name suggests) collects early works from this legendary Italian hardcore punk band. It contains '82 demo (tracks 1-3), rehearsal from the same year (tracks 4 and 11), split 7" with Eu's Arse (tracks 5-10) and Solo Odio LP (tracks 12-21). You can hear moving from more punk sound of the first demo to a more aggressive sound in the later stuff. This is re-issued on CD as 80-87 which means that there's more stuff, but I won't buy it 'cause Giulio The Bastard (of Cripple Bastards) who did this LP and the CD is now promoting serbian chetniks, (and such moronic mentality) who are fascist from the WWII era same as ustashe here in Croatia (and who fought each other btw, which is even more weird 'cause Giulio's mother is croatian).
Anyway, later in the 90s Impact have gone through some sound changes which resulted in more and more bad stuff (in my opinion). Impact's last record (as far as I know) is split 7" from '95 with another Italian band called D.U.S.K. that has only the guitar player from the original line-up and I don't believe that I've ever listened their 2 songs or the other band's 'till the end. That's one of rare records that I'd not miss.
Anyway the stuff here is legendary and asskickin raw hardcore punk italian way. Enjoy!
