ULTIMA ROTA CARRI-Necronenie-(Self Released-Italy-1988)

This is an amazing side project by the legendary Tam Quam Tabula Rasa post-industrial band active since the late 80s,a project already covered in this blog. 

In this tape U.R.C. offers us a sonorous compendium of ritual-hypno old school industrial.

A wonderful gift from the crypt of the 80s.
Enjoy it.

v.a.-Cybernetic Illuminations-(Tecdance-Germany-1991)

Astonishing cassette compilation covering the early EBM/Electro dance scene of the early 90s. 
Lots of good acts/artists alternating their great skills here. It came out in a generic TDK SA90 cassette and with a multi-folded sleeve with band addresses and label info.

The label also worked as a tape distributor, e.g. for bands such as Trial, Infam, Beborn Beton, In Absentia, and Brain Leisure and distributed some compilation tapes of INZKZ Produkte and Beton Tapes. (from Discogs)

TRAUMA-Trauma-(Nuclear Disaster Records-Italy-2015)

It happens that there are probably thousands of bands with this name.
In this case, this is a special one-off project by Claudio founder of this DIY Label and also drummer/guitarist of many bands, amongst them Epatite HC  of which I have already posted a Cdr.
In this project, Claudio wrote all the songs, plays all the instruments and sings. He is also the sound engineer as this was all recorded in his own private studio.
If you are into powerful tunes, fast music, angry vocals mixing HC Punk and doom metal then this is for you.
An excellent production.
Enjoy it.

v.a.-SIENA LIVE Vol 1-(Stella Mars Product-c46-Italy-1989)

Astonishing cassette documenting some great gigs by those tuscanian acts/bands, all coming from Siena or around Siena (Tuscany). 
It is all about new wave/dark wave and post punk, good recordings, nice graphics layout...it came out wih a little booklet with pics and lyrics, unfortunately, I cannot find right now in my messy collection of flyers, catalogs, mail art, fanzines.
This tape is an amazing document of the very first new wave/post punk scene of the Tuscany region in the fabolous 80s.
Enjoy it.

TRIAL OF THE BOW-Ornamentation-(Release Entertainment-USA-1995)

Formed in late 1993 by Renato Gallina (percussion/vocals) and Matthew Skarajew (stringed instruments), Trial Of The Bow emerged from the city of Melbourne, Australia's heart and the melting pot of all musical forms. While both members live and work in a metropolis, they strive to remove themselves and their listeners from this and transport them all to places exotic with their bared-down Eastern-inspired music.(from Discogs)
  Trial Of The Bow is an Ambient/Neo-Folk/World Music project of two members of Australian Doom/Death act Disembowelment. This has a rare depth and integrity seldom found in most "side-projects", which suggests that this is no mere flirtation with sounds. Influences from various traditions around the world, including Arabic and Celtic, are melded into a whole that strongly recalls Dead Can Dance. Sensual tribal music from Australia, utilizing such instruments as the tamboura, manjira, and e-bow, which not only incorporates the mystical sounds which graced the band's debut but also offers a further variety of vast musical styles.(from youtube)

DISTRUST-The War Years-(Free Tapes For The Punx Distro-Singapore-2009)

It appears that there are many bands using this name.
This tape is by the band from Singapore and playing metallic crust punk and you can find some info on this Discogs page.
Free Tapes For The Punx Distro is probably a funny name made as a joke for their own self-productions. 
With a good recording and a very lively energy, this is definetely a great tape for people into raw crust punk.
Enjoy it.

Ex Ánimo n8-(Fanzine-Sweden-2012)

Number 8 of this crust punk fanzine managed by Jannah in Sweden, I have already posted the Number 6  released in 2011. 
Also in this issue some good reviews of punk gigs and festivals in Sweden.
Lots of pictures, although printed in black and white as photocopy the quality of the pics is very good, I guess this is printed with a digital xerox machine. 
It is all written in Swedish Language, so this is only for the Swedish literates.
Enjoy it.

Bite The Hand That Feeds The Poisoned Food N4-(Fanzine-Denmark-2005)

This is the zine by Cormy from Ireland, this issue finished to be assembled in Nov. 2005 when He was living in Denmark.
 Personal writings and music mixed in his own very way making this collection of thoughts very special.
 After a long intro, we`ll find here interviews to Guided Cradle from the Czech Republic and Abandon from Sweden,, few music reviews plus a very in-depth and rather funny diary of the tour with Nuclear Death Terror.
All very well decorated with a crusty edge graphic layout making this zine looking very punk.
Nice one, Cormy.
