this one is a little bit older 'zine from Croatia edited by one my's published in September 2007.. it's written mainly on Croatian except some interviews.. Rotting Misery is oriented mainly on old school underground metal music.. on 34 pages you can read interviews with Devastation (Cro), Crypt of Kerberos, Revenant and Insision, also a lot of gig reports, few reviews and nice article about elitism on metal scene here in Croatia..
it's maybe not my type of music represented here but I like the style of author's writing.. everything is interesting to read, from introduction through gig reports, even interviews..
as I said before this number is something older but author is working on new issue which will be out soon.. until then, all you Croatian speaking bastards (and others, as well) can read it online or download as pdf file HERE..

Project Hopeless was crust/d-beat band from Sweden.. it was supposed to have interview with them here.. I've sended them some questions but in meantime they broke up as a band because some problems with line up, so here is some story about them copied from their my space page.. after all, this blog is named after one of their songs..

PROJECT HOPELESS. An A//E political hardcore raw punk act, doing d-beat hardcore punk for the masses.
We started the beginning of 2001 and ended in the beginning of 2010 and we managed to release three full 7"s, one split 7" and two LPs. Our debut LP was released in 2005 entitled "Kalla Jävla Samhälle" and the follow-up, "Välkommen till vår Sopfyllda Fabrik", were recorded in 2006 in Malmo and Bradford at the 1in12 Club and released in 2007 through a collaboration of friends labels including our own. Our last release were the "Av hela mitt hjärta" 7" released 2009 by another great collaboration of friends helping out! That's it! No more to come! From now on you can check out the new band that came out of our ashes CRUTCHES

We believe in fighting and opposing fascism and sexism within our daily lives, including in the punk scene, and believe that these issues are all too often given lip-service but very often action is not followed up by the words (or patches) people wear. We believe that we have to challenge and question those who exhibit racist/sexist behaviour. We are not perfect in any way, and these issues become really hard to address when it is our friends who say or do things that we believe to be wrong. How we learn as individuals, as friends, as groups, to try and alter and learn from our own and others behaviour is a battle that we think is often shied away from. It is a lot easier to keep quiet and say nothing. Divisions occur. Friendships are broken. Sides are taken. But where within the mess that is created is the learning, the responsibility, the awareness to consider our, and others actions and the willingness to try and change? We cannot expect to change the world if we do not make the effort to change our own thoughts, ideas and beliefs that have been instilled in us throughout our childhood and schooling. Not to mention societies larger value system influenced by various media with agendas to sell. As long as we accept or distance ourselves from people who demonstrate racist/sexist behaviour then we are not any nearer to realising a society based upon equality.

Within the 'civilised' system that we live it is a struggle to live a life without "masters", without a government controlling our future with statistics. We try to fight for a life in unity where we all work together and not against each other. A life where we don't have any "masters" attempting to subjugate us. This may sound cliched but lets be realistic and demand the impossible!!! Thinking and creating new ways to live our lives! Not just for now but in a sustainable way. Not just whilst we are young and energetic but for when we are older or sick. Where we, the people, can feel free and have a say. A society where we no longer have to think about the word "oppression".

We believe that if you are not trying to say what you have in your mind then you are missing one of the best opportunities that we still have here in this world. Yes, we are being increasingly controlled and monitored every day, our freedoms and civil liberties slowly becoming eroded but we can still exist and resist to create an alternative, to mange some kind of change. Even if this change is not as big a change as you want it to be, YOUR voice, YOUR actions are still relevant to the never ending resistance that those who govern us try to impose through law, the State and the increasing power of multi-national companies that are bit-by-bit branding and cleansing our world of individuality, of human beings uniqueness, in their desire to forever increase PROFIT! These companies that have so much power in dominating the economic climate of our towns and cities are smothering us. Money talks.

Sometimes it seems that our individual actions are pointless, that what we try to achieve in our own individual lives or within our social ones, that our squats, social centres, places to meet, organise, share, have a good time in, are extinguished bit by bit as the corporate world spreads farther and farther afield to clone and monopolise the masses. Our voice exists as a protest against the selfish, individualised and plastic world that we see that is poisoning and destroying nature as well as the humans that are PART of nature. If we cannot try to change the wrongs that we have been trained to know to be right then we are never ever going to be able to achieve any larger changes either. So don't keep quiet. Agitate. Organise. Create. Do-It-Yourself.

To say that the earth is dying is nothing new. To be able to give a future for our children and theirs we have to be more concerned about the earth. Still we have to try to live our lives so that we can enjoy ourselves. To be able to live our lives as though everyday was our last but to also to realise our impact on the environment as if you would live forever. This would be the ultimate but to be realistic, this is not always a possibility. We all need lighter moments in these sad times. Where the threat of everything comes over us all the time. Up the fucking punk life! Have fun! And don't just think about yourself. Be a loving person. As long as it is possible. Love, Peace and Equality.

This is the END!
After 9 years of struggling and existence we had to come to the point of putting down the name to the grave! We've been touring and playing more than we ever expected and are so extremely thankful to all who has supported us in any kind of way that you've done. IT feels extremely sad to call a quits but the situation made us incapable of trying to make this still worthwhile of the sudden changes in the bands in such a short time. Willy had to leave his position after just a couple of months in the band, this was something that lead to the end of our existence! We did feel really bumbed about the fact of Linus's department of the band, but since Willy wanted to take the part we decided to keep it rolling.
Now we feel that it's time for something new and that the name as Project Hopeless couldn't keep on with the impersonality of to many changes just to keep the ship floating, we are true to our D.I.Y. spirit and feel that this band and music is more than a band just to keep on forever. Me (Oskar) and Tom are to keep on playing as a new constellation, but that needs to be done under a new name. We will keep the updates going, that will most likely be more or less the same kind of stuff that we managed to do the last couple of years, guess we're not being able to do anything else together after so many years of hardcore punk madness!

Thanx a million to all of you's who's supported us, come to our shows, bought and supported our records, read our lyrics, spread the word around, booked our shows and tours, made all the great feelings of this punk community actually worth the struggle! You all know who you are and you all know that your part has been a part of a change!
Matte P is to be fully respected for handling our shit in the studio. Steve of war for putting the ink on paper for the great artwork of ours. Erik ApA for the super shit of madness and hyper activity, tour support and paintings. Pää our first drummer for getting the shit together as we did. Stefan for handling the drums for the years you did, and making the recording and shows of ours together such a great feeling. Linus fr being the one of learning some people to beat the shit out of a drum kit until you puke a sight worth all of the madness. Willy for putting the effort to the band in the last months. Steve Hyland for your great parts of the band, has been something of a mad change to the shit we did.
Thanx to all our great friends who helped us out releasing our records, wouldn't be as great as it turned out without your help!
We have a mile long list of people that we wanna thank through over the years, just not possible to get it all to print! We do appreciate you all, you know that!

uffffff this one is killer!!..
Senseless was legendary band from Požega, Croatia..they were active in late 90's when underground scene in Požega was the strongest one on this area, I think.. there was so many awsome bands right then (Senseless, Dislike, Helldis, Nonsense, Loš Primjer, Sprovod, Fight Back, Gruuthaagy and some others) with mostly the same crew of people circulating through those bands.. even today I can't decide which one is the best to me, but Senseless is definitely somewhere at the top..
their music was always hard to define.. they even called themselves power violence.. that was the first time I heard for that term, but I wouldn't say that they have much in common with what today is called power violence..
someone says that they play crust influenced with metal, and someone that this is metal influenced with crust.. funny, but that is totally irrelevant in this case, when it's about such a great band, you know, one of those when you listen them and you can't sitting still.. you must rise your hand or even jump few time in the air across your room (it's not recommended to listen them in the car while you drive, heheh..)..
I'm not one of those music theorist but I would describe them like raw and aggressive crust core with a little of metal influence..but you can judge yourself!..
they were very active and they had many releases, split tapes with some well known bands, also many gigs in Croatia and Slovenia..
here are some releases for which I know:
Senseless - With God We Crust
Senseless/Mastic Scum - split tape
Senseless/Twisted Truth - split tape
Senseless/Dickles Tracy - split tape
Senseless/Seguimos Aqui - split tape
Senseless/Nonsense/Brutal addition - 3-way split tape
Senseless/S.Z.I. - split 7" EP
Senseless/Panic Overdose - split 
Senseless/Lie Detector - split
Senseless/Pro Masa - split CD

nice discography, isn't it!?.. and I'm sure that there was more of that, probably some demo + songs on many compilations..
line up was, at first Goco - vocal, Kktz - bass, Dena - guitar and Suli - drums but then Goco left the band and Dena and Kktz take the microphone and terror continues..

I don't have any more info about them but below are some scans of an interview with them (Kktz actually) published in one old  'zine Bastard Of The Week #1 but it's on Croatian and it's totally not serious but it's interesting and fun for reading..(just click on the picture for the larger size)
also here are few download links for their releases so download and enjoy the noise!.. thanx to Kktz who send those links to me..

P.S. - as Kktz informed me there were some other members active in Senseless before those two line ups I had wrote about - Zebec (guitar), Kero (bass) and Vera (vocal) and Smole was guest vocal, besides on split EP with S.Z.I., also at their last live show..

 SENSELESS / S.Z.I. - split 7" EP
this is Senseless first and only one non-cassette release, I think (besides split CD with Pro Masa).. split with Slovenian crust band S.Z.I. (Sirup Za Iskašljevanje)..
on Senseless side 4 tracks recorded in their rehearsal room by their original (first one) line up with Smole (Dislike, Drob) as a guest on back vocals.. decent sound and great songs but not any fancy production here..
on S.Z.I. side 5 tracks of fast and raging crust with some engaged anti-state lyrics..
this EP is released by Slovenian label Abnormal Beer Terrorism in cooperation with bands and there were 530 copys pressed..

Senseless is represented here with live recordings from gig that took place atAKC Metelkova, Ljubljana, Slo, 20.04.1999.. nice raw sound and 14 their songs played by "new" line up with Dena and Kktz on vocals..
on the other side of a tape Mexicans Seguimos Aqui with their demo recordings from 1998.. S.A. are anarcho punk crust band with a little unusuall sound, but they are okay too..
tape is released by Ei Kiitos Tapes from U.K.


another one split tape.. this one is with legendary Slovenian grind band Dickless Tracy which are active still today.. both are represented with their live recordings from gig that took place in MKC Koper,Slovenia, 25 12.1999. which was part of their common mini-tour..  
11 tracks from Senseless in a little bit more drunk condition, if I may notice, heheh, but again great!
and on Dickless Tracy side 12 crazy grind core songs..
tape is released by bands, at their own..

more about this release read HERE

SENSELESS - With God We Crust (demo)
and here we have Senseless demo recorded live at rehearsal room 28.04.1996.. lyrics on croatian and english.. in this file are included complete scans of a cover with lyrics.. quality of the rip is great.. on some song with female vocals.. really great material..
big thanks goes to Aleš from amazing -TAPES ARE STILL NOIZY- blog for ripping and uploading this one..

SENSELESS - from split tape with Twisted Truth
uff.. and here some real chaos from Senseless.. this is actually rip only of Senseless side and it's not completely..few songs are missing.. here we have 6 of them, recorded live.. I don't know from where..
some really raw chaos crust with m/f vocals.. this tape was released by Rotten Tooths productions in 1997..

and here we have the whole Senseless/Twisted Truth split tape, again thanks to Aleš and his friend this time!.. this is really brilliant piece of noise by those two great bands.. from T.T. side 24 songs, some recorded live, some at rehearsal, some in studio.. very nice material if you are fan of filthy and raw as hell grindcore.. imagine the filthiest and the rawest Agathocles and you got Twisted Truth.. they are from Czech Republic, if you maybe had some doubts about that, country which was hatch of similar bands in '90s.. for Senseless I told already something above, but to repeat, they appeared here with some live recordings, also some rehearsal stuff.. chaotic sound of hc crust at balkan way!
all in all really nice tape.. in the file are included photos of the cover, with lyrics.. strongly recommended by me if you want your ears get dirty with some filthy sound!..

this CD was released by Mamma records, PMK records and Pushmajkar records and zine back in 2004 when both bands weren't active anymore and it still might be available on some distributions if you put some effort to find it.. Senseless are represented here with live recordings which are part of their last live appearance on the gig which took place at MKC Koper,Slovenia at February 2001 plus 2 bonus tracks recorded in rehearsal room.. all together 10 songs including Doom and Patareni covers.. sound is nasty, raw and chaotic as always, bringing to us some serious kick ass crust..
Pro Masa were a band from Sombor, Serbia existed only a year long in 2000.. on this CD are their demo recordings with 8 songs of wild hc crust with female shouted/screaming vocals..
all the info and lyrics are on nice looking booklet pressed on recycled paper which goes with CD (scans are included in download file)..

P.S. - if anybody out there have Senseless/Panic Overdose, Senseless/Lie Detector and Senseless/Mastic Scum splits as a physical, mp3 or any other form,  let me know, I would be extremely thankful and maybe buy you some drinks..
I have Senseless/Mastic Scum tape but I lost cover and don't know how to rip a tape..

videos from some past gigs..

here are some videos from gigs I had wrote about before here and here..  I've founded them on the net few days ago and thought that will be okay to post them here.. thanks goes to Njec who gave me permission for using them..

first one is from gig that was happened in Medika squat, Zagreb on 15.03.2010.. there were playing Stigma, I Hope You Suffer and Last Legion Alive.. only thing that suck here is that there isn't recorded the whole performance by Last Legion Alive, only part of it, and they were so great.. especially when you know that their last song was cover of Amebix's Axeman.. hmmm.. it's a shame, but fuck it.. better something than nothing..

second two videos are also from Medika, Zagreb from gig on which were played,beside Dispro and Nulla Osta which are represented here at videos, Dažd and Bolesno Grinje on 20.03.2010..
