MORTAL TERROR/GENERIC-Split LP-(Meantime Records-UK-1988)

Split album by those 2 British bands playing HC Punk mixed with Grindcore and other violent genres.
 Generic is a hardcore punk band from Newcastle, UK, active from 1985 to 1989. In this album, they assault us with spazzed out vocals and raw hardcore punk. Micky and Sned from this band went on to form the amazing One By One.
Unfortunately, I have little info about Mortal Terror.
A great album for people into raw hardcore punk.
Enjoy it.

MURDER CORPORATION–Exenteretion-(Slaughter Productions-Italy-1995)

Murder Corporation is Moreno Daldosso, active with this name since 1992. The name was chosen later as I felt that fitted perfectly the content of the music that I was making. I started listening to Heavy Metal, Punk, Hardcore, moving later to Dark Gothic EBM and finally Industrial music. 
The first Industrial record I got into was “Discipline” by T.G. The people who influenced me the most were Merzbow and particularly Boyd Rice. Also, William Bennet and Kevin Tomkins inspired me. 
For the first recordings, I used mostly tapes, noises, short waves and distorted voices. Successively I adopted a sampler Akai s01 and a tone generator (V.C.O). (from Discogs)
 Slaughter Productions was the label managed by Marco Corbelli aka Atrax Morgue, releasing mostly his own music and few other associated noise artists.
Enjoy the Noizzzz...

EXTINCTION OF MANKIND-Live At MKNZ-(Atomic Fart-Slovenja-1996)

Another amazing recording at the MKNZ in Slovenia,this place hosted quite a few good punk bands during the 90s and the live recordings of these gigs are just wonderful.
I have already posted the demo by Extinction Of Mankind, on their official webpage you`ll be able to read their long history, gig, discography, news and more.
Formed in 1992 and still alive and kicking this band has made, definitely, history in this genre with a huge following of passionate fans worldwide. 
This tape is crafted with powerful tunes showing us their destructive force as a killer live act.
Very good recording and song titles in the cover sleeve.
A great live tape.
Crust as fuck!

v.a.-FLORALIA Vol 2-(On/Off Records-Italy-1997)

An amazing international compilation with very obscure bands/artists playing weird shoegaze, strange psychedelic rock, unhinged avant-garde, personal space rock, and similar acid jingles.
It came out with a little booklet reporting bands info and graphics works.
A little treat for people into acid musical voyages and joyful no-sense carnivals.
It was released by On/Off Records 
Italian independent label from Spotorno (Savona); in 1998 changed the name in beware! RECORDS, continuing the same catalogue numbering.
A very big thanx to Dante D. for donating to this blog this little unknown gem as Flac files + this small interesting note about the sampler.
"Comparable to the better known Succour and Alms compilations, The Floralia series of four discs was released n Italy during the same period, and like Soccour these CDs featured similarity independent space & psych bands from across the globe.
Personal highlights from the second volume are Kryptasthesie`s spiralling teleportation raga(from Italy) and Tribe of Cro(launching from Belgium in a brief stellar cruise toward suspended animation).
Other guests include two of Jorge Beltransjam-bands, Humus(Mexico) and Frolic Froth(ex loch Ness).
The U.S. Texas arm of underground space-rock bands are represented by Iron Bong and Bag(both from the same dry heat that gave us Lithium X-Mas and ST 37).
Excerpts from Anna Nacher`s sacred cave meditations with the polish group Atman are also added, along with contributions from S/T and others you no-doubt know or will soon discover."
Enjoy it.

Kryptästhesie-Shaken At The Sun-(Double Vinyl-Menhir Records-Italy-1992)

KRYPTÄSTHESIE was a band from Lecco(Northern Italy) active from 1987 till 1997, they were playing their idiosyncratic form of psychedelic rock mixing some new wave, rock anthems, acoustic melodies and other fluid passages of creativity. Definitely, a band that has its own personality and never wanted to sell its soul for the commercial music industry. 

 Somehow there is in this disc a pure Syd Barret spirit yet they have their own energy making their music a voyage to the centre of not adulterate fantasy

To complete this post I am attaching  a great live video.

 Enjoy this rather obscure masterpiece of psych-rock.

dUASsEMIcOLCHEIASiNVERTIDAS-Poda/Enco-(Associação Terapêutica Do Ruído-Portugal-2018)

I know dUASsEMIcOLCHEIASiNVERTIDAS and Associação Terapêutica do Ruído since a few years now and I was thinking to make a post about them already last year, lately, I met in Lisboa Boris and Joao and I asked them to write something for this post. Today I am proud to present this band and their music releases+biography and videos. They play a very personal form of noisy free jazz mixed with art-rock and avant-garde propelled bass lines,obsessive guitar riffs + rhythmic weird passages.
As I was very curious about their name, I did dare to ask:  dUASsEMIcOLCHEIASiNVERTIDAS  means "two reversed semi-quavers" or "two reversed sixteenth notes" (or "due semi-cromi invertiti;) and the original idea was to have just a symbol/logo with no name, but then at a certain point the symbol had to become a word and that's how we ended with this name:)
They have out quite a few releases, split tapes, and collaborations, all as a free download on their bandcamp page.

Here a short bio provided by Joao:
"Formed in 2007 by the same sick minds who created the hyperactive Associação Terapêutica do Ruído (ATR), their siamese entity which is dedicated to promoting DIY concerts and releasing and distributing records, the dUASsEMIcOLCHEIASiNVERTIDAS (dSCi) are a collective of noise therapists based in Lisbon that have a curriculum almost as extensive and intense as their music: two EPs ("I" in 2008 and "II" in 2009), a tape (“SADITREVNiSAIEHCLOcIMEsSAUd“ in 2010), a LP (“4” in 2012), two split-tapes (“dSCi/Cangarra” in 2013 and “Chains Split Tape Vol. 2” in 2016), a single (“Poda/Enco” in 2018), a split-vinyl (“dSCi/Parpar split” in 2018), two live albums with their side project of electro-acoustic improvisationdOISsEMIcIRCUITOSiNVERTIDOS, participations in several compilations, countless european tours and hundreds of concerts in the most varied situations and places and with the most diverse groups and musicians, not to mention all the other projects to which they are or have been directly and indirectly linked during these years."

Their last production is a split vinyl with their friends PARPAR and I am attaching here their official press-release.

Associação Terapêutica do Ruído & A Besta present:

After having shared the stage on a number of occasions, including the recent Ñekñek Tour, the infamous dUASsEMIcOLCHEIASiNVERTIDAS (dSCi) and the intrepid PARPAR have just released a split album together!

Recorded in October last year by maestro Milo Gomberoff at his Hukot studio in Barcelona during dSCi's KsChNpSk Tour and PARPAR's Tuktuk Tour and mixed and mastered by the master himself during the following months, the album was released on vinyl on the 18th November at Feira de Vinil de Lisboa, a vinyl record fair that took place at Mercado de Santa Clara in Lisbon.

The record, whose artwork was done by Katafu (Krafica), includes 4 tracks from dSCi: the already well-experimented “Jean-Louis is not a crime”, “Glut” and "Dr. Músculo” (aka "Mr. Muscle", which features the special participation of Pedro Arelo from PARPAR) and the new "Benco", a full version of the B-side track of the single “Poda/Enco” released last January; and 3 tracks from PARPAR with guest André Calvário (aka Jorge) on the bass: new versions of “STOSTO” and “PAIPAI” and the brand new “HUKHUK”, which was made during this recording session (and which is the first improvisation of the duo with a third element).

The vinyl edition is a partnership between the collectives Associação Terapêutica do Ruído (ATR) and A Besta and the labels Epicericords (France), Et Mon Cul C'est Du Tofu? (France), Experimentáculo Records (Portugal), Gaffer Records (France), Lepers (Italy) and Panda Records (Thailand) and it can be ordered by mail through any of these labels (or found at some record stores and distros around the world). And the digital edition is available for free download through the Portuguese netlabel Enough Records (and also in the bandcamps of some of the labels involved on this joint release).
To complete this post I am going to attach here all the useful links about this amazing trio, they are often in tour therefore if it happens that they are in your town I recommend to go to see them live. Thanx to Joao and the rest of the gang for sending me all these info and their help.
Enjoy it.

TESTIMONIUM-One`s Last Sleep-(Hithlahabuth Records-Germany-1990)

I have very little info about this project, I only know that it is somehow associated with the German label  Hithlahabuth Records ‎, label active in the early 90s releasing mostly industrial/noise-ambient artists.
Testimonium offers us a tape with some exquisite esoteric electronicks, weird chants, noise ambient, and cacophonous passages building  ravenous disturbances that are composed of several aggressive frequencies. 
A great tape for contemplative inner flights.
Enjoy it.
