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..
