MALIŠA BAHAT stuff


last night I was on first gig this year, well on a half of gig, I only saw Path of Cestoda and Mališa Bahat and went home cause I had to be up early today, but hey, it was good gig, Mališa Bahat were great, I like watch those guys live.. also get some nice stuff from them, split 7" with Zmar and their cassette "Thus Far" which is kind of discography tape with material from their both previous releases.. and yes, the most important, there is space for gigs in Varaždin, finally.. a proper one.. Kulturana, I was first time there, according to some photos, stories and some previous events which didn't really fit into some diy hc punk circles and considering on that they weren't interesting for me, I was thinking and had impression that this is one more fancy club, but I was so wrong, place is cool and I hope there will be more real diy hc punk gigs in the nearest future..
the same line up as yesterday in Varaždin, today in Zagreb, at
Medika's yard, hope some shitty heavy rain won't ruin it, so be sure to visit it if you're close, I mean it's not like you have a chance to go on punk gig every day, especially with bands from abroad ;)

DISBAJA - Prošlost Sadašnjosti / History of Now - new album is out now!!


after another line up change and after months and months of social inactivity and isolation, new album by Disbaja is finally here, and let me tell you this is definitely some next level of Disbaja, not any more your regular thrashy d-beat metal punk band but this time some serious effort has been put in making of this album which is clearly visible by every single detail, from cover art to song structure which is more complex then ever, then lyrics, intro and outro which gives some story-like touch to the whole thing, to sound which is polished to the perfection this time..
musically, well it varies from song to song, some are classic d-beat punk outbursts, few real hardcore attacks and one or two filled with thrash/death metal riff assault, it means mash up of everything a little, similar as it was on previous recordings but as I said before this is raised on some higher level, even I could call it some sort of art form..
all together 12 tracks will led you on half an hour long epic journey through the dark wastelands of history of now, "Bježi si s Puta" and "Mutacija" you could already heard on official video and as a maxi single published few months ago and from others the most pleasant surprise is "Tvoj Izbor" which is actually cover of "Your Choice" by very special band to me, Detestation with lyrics on Croatian and it sounds awesome.. also song Propast (Moj je spas) must be mentioned, it's dangerously good and definitely my favourite from this album..
do I like more old or new sound and style, well this is hard, I need to listen this one for some 1000 times then I will maybe decide.. until then I'm really looking forward to catch this on some physical form, I can easily imagine it on vinyl, it would sound great, I'm sure..

APSURD - Derealizacija / Svemu će doći kraj LP is out now!!

Apsurd's Derealizacija/Svemu će doći kraj 12" is the band's first output in the form of vinyl format.

Actually, it's a collection of two EP's. A-side brings you six songs previously released as a tape "Derealizacija" while the B-side includes six entirely new songs recorded last year in the bands practice room on primitive 4-track machine.

If you somehow missed one of our favourite bands from the ex-YU area, we'll mention that Apsurd are Belgrade based group of individuals, even though the band members come from Serbia and share drummer from USA. There's no much difference in the songwriting style when it comes to newly recorded "Svemu će doći kraj" EP and we mean that in a good way. The band still plays straightforward, energetic and noisy hardcore punk heavily influenced by the punk and hardcore scene of former Yugoslavia. Throw in some vibe and influence from Crass Records and Corpus Christi catalogue and you'll get the picture right there.

Whether we're talking about primal and primitive hardcore of U.B.R., scratchy and noisy guitar work of Solunski Front or the hopeless female yelling and spoken word moments Tožibabe were known for, this band covers it all. We like to tell people this is Yugo-punk reinvented for the new millenium so if this means anything to you don't sleep on this pogoing punk troops!

Available in purple and orange silkscreened sleeves with two sided insert with lyrics and english translations. Limited to 500 copies.

Vinyl master by Ivan Jakić
A side recorded, mixed and mastered by Jasmin Dasović.
B side recorded and mixed by D.R. Sjordgrendsten, mastered by Jimi 3B.

Artwork by Saturnov Okot.

HOMOMILITIA - s/t (2020) on Sanctus Propaganda bandcamp

this one is great.. you all know for Homomilitia, I assume, so there is no need to some introduction about them.. I heard some news about this one supposed to be released on vinyl, then completely forgot about it and few days ago I found it on bandcamp.. there were two versions of vinyl release and both sold out in few hours so now it is only available in CD format from SP webshop

story about it goes like this:

How long have you been waiting for a record to be released? Most probably not as long as 20 years in case of this jewel by HOMOMILITIA. Recorded 20 years ago it never made it to mastering stage and was left in a cardboard box at the guitarist’s basement, waiting for its day. Numerous attempts at releasing it had been made, all failed. Until now. We joined forces, took things seriously this time, and went in search of the cardboard box. DAT tape was found and travelled to Dobra 12 Studio in Bialystok for a mastering stage it so much deserved.

The result is the second full-length LP by Poland’s most influential DIY punk bands – HOMOMILITIA. Active in the 90’s, touring Europe extensively they uniquely blended metal guitar sound with punk d-beats, spirit and anger. This LP finds the band at the pinnacle of their musical achievements. The sound they managed to produce on this recording 20 years ago still puts to shame many contemporary metal and punk studio productions. Expect 11-song d-beat mayhem spiced up with a heavy bolt thrower-ish guitar and pissed-off lyrics on state oppression and hopelessness of everyday life.

AGIPUNK bandcamp



some interesting stuff on Agipunk records bandcamp, every ten days or so few more Agipunk releases are published.. the plan is to publish them all and if you follow their work you know there are some very interesting stuff under their belt so check it from time to time, I'm sure you'll find something for yourself.. the most interesting to me so far are some Abuso Sonoro and Forca Macabra stuff or Campus Sterminii/Disgusting Lies split for example..





D.I.Y. PUNK JURIŠ 22.06.2020. AKC Medika, Zagreb - video

this one was one of the rare but also one of the most interesting gigs lately, held in Medika's yard on the Anti-Fascist Struggle Day last week.. thanx to SubsiteTV for recording, there are also some cool photos on their site so go check it..

P.S. - it's obviously, U.B.T. are louder, crazier and faster with every new gig.. awesome..

APSURD - Svemu Će Doći Kraj - new song!! // K​-​Town Hardcore Fest 2020 compilation (Benefit for Ungdomshuset)



hell yeah, new song from Apsurd and it's dangerously good.. also there are some hints that the new record is in preparation and I'm looking forward to it.. hope most of the songs will sound like the end of this one, hehe, that would be awesome..



btw, this one is published on the benefit tape for Ungdomshuset squat which is actually compilation of all the bands that were supposed to play on this year edition of K-TOWN fest in June but due virus situation all is moved to September..
all together 30 bands, some already well known and some still unknown to me but also interesting and really good.. most of them are represented with new, still unreleased songs so it's one more reason to check it out.. ..
you can listen it at K-Town Hardcore fest bandcamp and if you can support them by buying this or some other merch from web shop..

ADRESTIA live @ DAK Bambucha garage, Varaždin (Croatia) 28.07.2019. - video


well, I'll be damned but I think that this was the last gig I was before all this covid stuff and it will be already a year ago in just few weeks.. the day before I was watching Adrestia on Buka i Otpor festival in Zagreb and they were actually the best and most interesting band that night, at least to me.. the other day, in Varaždin, as I was tired as hell and also bored by long Adacta's set who were sharing a van on this tour with them (I mean they are ok band but not one of those I would like to watch two days in a row) I left home before their show which I kinda regretted, but at least here is a video of one their song, The Sun of Rojava..
they are anarchist crust punk band with slight touch of death metal from Sweden, sharing members with Shades of Grey, Future Ruins, etc... I really like the sound of vocals, I assume that the singer is from this our area because I remember he communicated with crowd on some serbo-croatian during the show in Zagreb, also they have song named Opsada..
btw, this gig was supposed to happen in one of the organiser's yard but due the horrible weather and heavy rain it was moved in small garage under his house.. besides already mentioned Adrestia and Adacta there were also playing, as local support grindcore band Gemišt and sludge crust act Ankora from Zadar..
enjoy the video.. thanx to Sara for filming..
