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.
