D-SAGAWA live @ Gross Outlet, Alston, Massachusetts 11.03.2016 - video






I like when in the sea of similar and sometimes boring d-beat bands I found such gem as this one is.. D-Sagawa are d-beat crust band from Boston, Massachusetts, don't know much about them except they have great demo "I Want to Die Suffering" released in 2016, also on their bandcamp you can listen a new single from upcoming release which also sound great..
even on demo they sound something darker, maybe I'm insane but I swear I hear some black metal influences there, but on few live videos that I found on youtube they deliver pure d-beat straight into your face and heavy as hell.. just when I thought that perfect d-beat band doesn't exist I found this, well maybe...
also found one nice review and could't agree more with it hehe, go read it here: https://someweirdsinrecords.com/2016/06/28/a-review-of-d-sagawas-i-want-to-die-suffering/

NUCLEAR ALTAR - Mankind in Decline (tape) [2017]

just few weeks after publishing Nuclear Altar's second demo online on bandcamp I got it by the post mail in its officially release form as a tape.. even though I listened this monster countless times before I got the tape, now the whole feeling is somehow better and complete..
demo was recorded in April this year and the best thing about it is the way it was recorded, apparently on just one microphone and at once and the whole material sounds in that good old primitive and raw way which is the thing that I miss the most on current recordings of nowadays hc punk and crust bands.. and when you see cover which is made in cut and paste style the whole thing just radiates real diy spirit..
there are all together 14 tracks (including some already heard on 1st demo and Dislike, Hellkrusher and U.B.R. covers) in something different sound as it was on "Blessed Ruins".. well I could easily write a book about bands from Požega changing their sound and members so that's the case here as well.. some time after releasing the 1st demo Neno left the band so Gera (previously on bass) take the drums and Nani (ex Fight Back, Hellback...) joined the band as a new vocalist, and Kktz this time sticks to guitar most of the time, doing just some back vocals in few tracks.. of course all that affected on a new sound, as well in speed (new drummer) and in something different guitar sound and riffs similar as in guitarist's other crust/black metal project Gutterskull and of course a new vocals which are now female.. but despite all that they managed to keep this darkness and filth which this band was recognizable for before and to deliver us some serious doze of great raw hardcore punk, still in d-beat style maybe with some more metal/doom influences, all played in old school way without any unnecessary complications.. so few songs are something slower as usual like Infernal Disappearance, Mankind in Decline, Slavonian Funeral, but there are also some real d-beat attacks which are my favorites like Constant Distruction, Legacies of Death, End of Illusion and Ghostblood Rituals.. from other I would like to point out the Dislike cover Victims of Progress which is great and was one of my favorites songs of Dislike.. all lyrics are on English written by Kktz in already familiar minimalistic but strong and powerful style and dark and full of despair tone, and are spited out through angry Nani's vocals..
in short, if you want to know how the apocalypse would sound from it's crushing and devastating beginning to slow and agonized end and death of mankind and nature - listen to this..
beside really nice artwork, xerox cover consists of band pictures and lyrics, all songs are recorded on both side of the tape, also you get sticker with it and the whole thing is released in only 80 pieces so hurry up if you wanna get yourself a copy.. it's available from Olden Sonorities distro for 20 kn / 3 euros..

just a quick review on CRUTCHES / DISBAJA gig @ AKC Attack, Medika(Zagreb)

yesterday I witnessed a gig of one of the best crust bands that ever had visited Zagreb.. by this "the best" I think by everything, by their attitude, performance, behaviour and of course musicaly .. such a complete band!.. I'm talking about Crutches, d-beat raw punk monsters from Sweden which finally decided to visit this part of eu-rope, as they said, hehe.. too bad one drunk fool ruined the gig and make them play, I think a waaay shorter as they wanted to and for what they were in the mood.. I don't know anymore, probably this is all punk, but this time it pisses me off.. anyhow, I'm glad I saw this amazing band.. just too bad people here don't realize what kind of band played here yesterday, I mean when Disbaja played there were more people inside the space and we can see them like every month.. I don't like give such comparisons etc. but Crutches are really in the top top of world's crust, they are level of bands such as for example Visions of War, D-Clone, Doom and the likes, I'am not kidding. okay just feel the urge to mention this here, some proper review of this event will follow when I get a computer because it's bloody hard for me to type and make posts with mobile phone.. cheers!..

NUCLEAR ALTAR - Mankind in Decline demo 2017 free download



so the whole demo is online on Nuclear Altar bandcamp and there is also free download link on mediafire..
demo sounds great if you ask me, not any fancy production this time, recorded with just one mic and at once, without any philosophy and complications.. there are few brand new songs, some are already heard on "Blessed Ruins" and 3 covers by U.B.R., Hellkrusher and Dislike..
tape will also be out soon.. that's all for now, some proper review will probably follow when I get the tape.. until then enjoy debris and filth..

AntiFA fest 21st and 22nd April 2017, AKC Metelkova Mesto, Ljubljana (Slovenia)

"Under pretense of austerity measures and desire to limit the number of migrants in the country, politics of current Slovenian government are bringing separation and hate into society. Barbed-wire fence on the southern border, introduction of quotas for migrants, new laws about migration and pushing migrants out of the country altogether created an atmosphere, in which increasing number of actions by Neo-Nazi sympathizers are merely the street face of such politics.

Last year alone, Neo-Nazis carried out three bigger assaults on autonomous spaces (on Sokolski dom in Novo mesto for collecting food and clothes for migrants, on Rog Factory in Ljubljana, while it was defended from eviction, and on Autonomous cultural zone Metelkova mesto). Similar attacks happened in the past as well. Autonomous and other open spaces represent the symbol of free creativity, fighting for radical equality and stand against all forms of oppression.

The question all of us should therefore ask ourselves is: are we going to tolerate bigotry in graffitis and stickers? Will we tolerate verbal and even physical assaults? By attending our antifascist festival and our work on and around it, we want to show that different worlds and different politics with the messages of anti-fascism, freedom, solidarity and openness are possible. If you want to say a clear NO Neo-fascism, nationalism, racism and hatred, join us on 21. and 22. of April 2017 in Metelkova, Ljubljana and be a part of our ANTIFA FEST!"
