Humor Cáustico-Ensaio(2001)-Gravação Directa-(Self Released-Portugal-2001)

Humor Cáustico was an HC Punk band from Oporto(Portugal) active last decade, I m  not sure if the music and images here were ever released as a  proper production, in fact, Rodolfo(the guitarist) passed these files to me as mp3s on a CD-R probably 13 years ago, since then I have lost touch with him.
18 tracks in this practise recording, pretty good quality and performance. Political lyrics are sung in Portuguese, powerful guitar riff, fast drums and energetic vocals: all the right ingredients for a great HC punk production.
I have posted a live production by this great band, you`ll find it here.
I am adding a few pics that were included with these files.
A big thanks to Rodolfo for this nice digital gift. Enjoy it.:f(a*r~a_w)a*y: click me

BROBAT ENEMA-Lady In Red-(Exart-Holland-198?-)

Excellent tape-work by this unknown project somehow related to Enema Digest, A group of three hardcore industrial musicians from London, named after Paul Daniels, who was a famous magician & TV personality in the UK. The band set up a gig and announced it as Paul Daniels World Tour. Paul Daniels is the same musicians as Brobat Enema and Enema Digest.
The music evolves in areas such as "primitive" minimal synth, repetitive electronic jingles and Rhythmbox music.
 EXART (label, studio and archive) was founded by Hessel Veldman and Nick Nicole (2) in October 1982. In 1978 Hessel had started composing experimental music and before 1978 he was playing the guitar in several local blues- and rock bands. The label wanted to spread new experimental and improvised music. The studio was the place to improvise, compose, record and make radio-programmes, mixes and remixes. At the same time, Veldman started to preserve sounds in the Exart archive. The label ended its activities in 1995, although there are rumours that Veldman has plans to do digitalized reissues of some of the releases.
Variations on the label name (Exart Cassettes, Exart K7) are used on some of the releases

DIVINE INTOXICATION -The Invisible Imam-(Self Released-Marocco(?)-1999)

Another mystery tape, I know very little about this project, there are a few useful info coming with it yet not enough to be sure.
 It seems to be a Maroccan project,9 tunes of which 3 were recorded live.
The music is a kind of experimental dub with many references to the music/sounds and spirituality of the north African countries.
All the songs were composed from 1997 to 1999 yet it is not stated where and how they were recorded, though it sounds very DIY style.

"All Textures were woven and conceived by the Inebriated Assassin, guitar on `Hall Of THe Broken Dub Caravans` by Android, Thanx to Moth for technical help---Peace to Underground Illness Resisters Everywhere".
Besides this, the folded A4 b/w cover sleeve includes quite a few interesting thoughts, I invite you to read it and make up your mind about this mysterious project.
Great tape with original and personal sounds/music & concepts.
Anybody out there with more info about this excellent cassette? If so, please leave a comment, I`d love to know more.
Enjoy it.

Kryptästhesie-Leaves` Laughters-(Self Released-Italy-1985)

The first production by this amazing psychedelic rock band hailing from Lecco and active for about 10 years. 
They play 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. 
I have already posted their albums Shaken By The Sun released in 1992 and Inner Whirl released in 1996. 
Enjoy it.

HEADCRASHER-Introspection-(Dracma Records-Italy-1991)

Headcrasher project was born in 1984 for the will of drummer Roby Vitari, later in bands such as Creepin ‘Death, Mindwars and Jester Beast. In 1989, singer Claudio Gentile and Roby decided to move to Torino area to ensure greater success for their group’s future. In 1989, “Nothing Will Remain” was released, an important chapter for the Italian speed metal scene (originally released in vinyl 12″). Two years later, the band released their second and final career full-length, “Introspection,” which features a faster and more aggressive heavy metal if compared to their debut. In 1992, the final break-in occurred. Except for the singer Claudio, the other members left Headcrusher and gave life to The Art of Zapping project. Claudio then puts on a new line-up with which Headcrasher published the EP “Brain Jokes“. The group definitively closes all activities in 1993. (info is taken from the official webpage of Punishment 18 Recs, an Italian label that re-released in 2017 their fist vinyl Nothing Will Remain originally released by Metalnews in 1989)

DJINN-Katharos-(Slaugther Productions-Italy-2002)

Djinn project was founded by Vintras in 1999, as an act of detachment from one's social life and the pathetic rules which it can invite. Sounds reflecting into the vision of their creation of a world inhabited by his own assassins. The only solution to already too widespread illness. Silence and loneliness, the only sources of survival. Suicide, the emergency door for a few people. The first steps of Djinn are named "Ritual". They take shape in a 5 tracks demo tape. Between 2001-2002 Vintras is noticed by Marco Corbelli alias Atrax Morgue, who ultimately funded his first chapter entitled, "Katharos", under his label (Slaughter Productions). In 2002 Vintras self-produces a 3" mini cd called "Multiple Personality Distorted" containing 3 tracks. In 2003 he gives to birth the second chapter "Technological Death" still under Slaughter Productions. In 2004 the third chapter turned out to be prophetic with the title "Goodbye" closing the collaboration with Slaughter. For the first time, it includes a cover of a project that Vintras always appreciated.

Aphora was a Portuguese industrial project formed by José Vilela, also involved in these projects:Corvu Prettu, José Vilela, Karfreitrg, Lacrima Christi, Negrume.
With 6 tracks in this single-sided tape, Aphora plays a good mix of quiet noise and dark ambient reminding me of some old experiments of esoteric electronicks.
