v.a.-A Tribute To Marco Corbelli-(Ton Doigt Dans Mon Cul Netlabel-Canada-2017)

Originally released in 2008 by marcocorbellitribute.com and marcocorbellitribute.tk this is a reissue of the Canadian net-label Ton Doing Dans Mon Cul.
I have written about Marco Corbelli many times, therefore I believe He needs no introduction on this blog.This sampler offers us many great artists in the field of noise, and death industrial.
All the releases by this Canadian net-label are issued as free download, here a note from their page about this amazing compilation.
Enjoy It.
"Atrax Morgue was Italian noise musician Marco Corbelli (April 3, 1970 – May 6, 2007). Many of Atrax Morgue's early material was released on cassette, as part of the industrial/noise 'cassette underground' of the early 1990s. Often these cassettes were released on Corbelli's own Slaughter Productions label, some of which have now been reissued on CD-R. Throughout the late '90s, Atrax Morgue released numerous CDs on prominent noise labels, such as Self Abuse Records, Release, Old Europa Cafe, RRRecords, Crowd Control Activities and Ars Benevola Mater.
Corbelli committed suicide by hanging on May 6, 2007. He was 37. He had always had a vocal fondness for and interest in death."

This tribute compilation was previously released on marcocorbellitribute.com and marcocorbellitribute.tk in January 2008. Since then, the domains under which it was released were abandoned, along with the compilation itself.

10 years later, on May 6th 2017, along with all the participants we managed to track down, we believe that this tribute should be available again.

GERIATRIC UNIT-Nuclear Accidents Ep-( Social Bomb Records, Violent Change-Germany-2007)

Hardcore Punk from Nottingham, UK, with ex-members of Heresy, Hard to Swallow and Shank.They play a very powerful and fast HC Punk, great recording, lyrics reported in the cover sleeve, here an introduction is taken from their myspace.
"A hardcore punk outfit -- of the "Loud Fast Rules!" school -- made up of drummer Steve Charlsworth, bassist Kalv Piper, guitarist Jim Rushby, and vocalist Gords Holmes (former members of such groups as Heresy, Iron Monkey, and Hard to Swallow), Geriatric Unit first came to some prominence in the British scene with the critically well-received EP release Nuclear Accidents in March of 2007.
A second EP, Life Half Over, followed soon after. The Nottingham, England-based group was then able to release a CD compilation of its first two EPs for Japanese label Speedstate. As 2008 dawned, Geriatric Unit were hard at work on a handful of 7" releases. ~ Chris True"

SIVULLINEN Newsletter 5/97-(Sivullinen-Finland-1997)

Another astonishing issue of this amazing newsletter:
Sivullinen was a newsletter edited by Jouni Waarakangas in Helsinki(Finland)!!!Jouni was printing in it everything that was coming out from the underground world.This newsletter had no borders!!! 
We could find in its: news about zines, comics, tape labels, mail art, anarchist newspapers, poetries, short stories, experimental music, adverts for future compilation tapes, flyers of bands and their productions, mail art projects and whatever was related to all those subjects.
The graphics layout was messy and at the same time funny on one A6 size folded page or more pages.
It was printed 4 or 5 times at year in a print run of 1000 copies and it was free although a donation of stamps would have been always very appreciated.Jouni was into trading zines and cassette productions!!
Sivullinen was also a great fanzine created by Jouni and I have already posted few numbers as well as a couple of issues of this newsletter, you`ll find it all here.

Raiva N2 + Bestial Devastation "Ammunition" demo tape-(Fanzine + Cassette-Brazil-2016)

Second number of this Brazilian fanzine in English language, in this issue we find interviews to Verminoize, Tony Montana,Split Veins, Para Raio De Desgraca + Conducta Destructiva, Projecto Macabro and Terror Algum plus few music reviews and some nice pictures.
It came out with the cassette by Bestial Devastation, a Brasilian Duo playing a raw grindcore reminding me some stuff by Sore Throat with a kind of lo-fi recording sounding brutal and noisy.
I guess one of them is the mastermind of this fanzine.
Included a screen printed patch and an A6 poster too by Bestial Devastation.
Get it if you are into grind/crust and similar stuff.
Enjoy it.

SMERSH-Ordinary People-(Atlas King-USA-c60-1985)

Smersh was Mike Mangino and Chris Shepard. And from 1981 until 1994 they released far too many cassette tapes. They also contributed to far too many compilations throughout the known world. In the early eighties, they established a unique sound that is known and loved, combining cheap electronics and wild guitar sounds with distorted vocals. They were, in fact, a bit The Ramones of the industrial scene. But were they industrial? The Smersh sound had so many faces that it is next to impossible to categorize their music. Smersh recorded on most Monday evenings for a couple of hours. Each song was improvised over the course of the evening and then recorded. Once it was finished they never played it again. They never rehearsed, they couldn't read music, and they never played live.from their official webpage)
 Atlas King was the tape label of Smersh, founded by Chris Shepard and Mike Mangino in 1981. Until 1991 the label had no official name and the cat.no. looked like this: SC000, from 1991 it was officially Atlas King and the cat.no. looked like: AK000.
The last release with the SC prefix is SC032, the first with the AK prefix is AK033.
In 1994 the last tape was released.
The follow-up label is Mirandette Popular.
Enjoy it.

ORDER 1968-Il Giardino Delle Rune-(Hate Productions-Italy-c60-1992)

Order 1968 is the personal project by Claudio Dondo,who later founded the project Runes Order.He also seems to be the mastermind behind the label Hate Productions.
In this tape, Claudio plays 8 tunes reminding me some experiments of early esoteric electronicks and ambient/drone.
Here a note from LastFM:
"Order 1968 was a dark ambient project formed in 1988 in Genoa, Italy by Claudio Dondo. The name of the project was changed to Runes Order in 1992. Order 1968's compositions were inspired by ritualistic and industrial atmospheres and were composed using synthesizers, pre-recorded tapes, and self-made metallic percussion instruments."

Radical fanzine with crititcs and ideas about the punk scene and other interesting subjects.
Some music reviews, few interviews to bands, some comics and then rants and articles: students rights, drugs abuse, working class actions, zine and films reviews, revolutions and evolutions...

A nice and totally diy fanzine that reminds me a lot of good stuff from the 90s.
With few graphics very sarcastic this is well worth checking out.

KRANIO-Monotonia-(Self Released-Italy-2011)

Kranio was a short lived anarco-punk band from Benevento (Southern Italy),as far as I know they only recorded this totally diy cd-r back in 2011.
They play a raw form of HC punk, singing about revolution,wars +
rage against this society and its injustice. 
My copy has a reversed inlay graphic layout, I wonder if this is just a mistake or if they printed it like this intentionally.
Enjoy it.
