two new releases on Doomtown Records..

DT 047 SUKOB - Tvoje Misli Su Nečija Umjetnost MLP 8.50 EUR

Although Sukob (Conflict) is a relatively new band, some of their members were involved in a bunch of local hardcore punk and anarcho punk acts for longer than two decades.
"Tvoje Misli Su Nečija Umjetnost" (Your Thoughts Are Someone's Art) is their debut mini-album filled with ten honest, raging and uncompromising gems inspired by living in this part of the world. Musically we could place them somewhere along the spectrum of early sharp & punishing Pig Champion's rapid fire riffage and fist-pumping Scandinavian hardcore with hints of Celtic Frost-ish midtempo drives. When you spice that up with unique desperate & pissed off vocals you'll got a hell of a fresh sounding raw hardcore punk record! Turn this one up loud!
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Ivan Jakić. Artwork by Bodež.
Limited to 500 copies. 400 on black, 100 on red vinyl available for mailorder only.

DT 046 CRNA ŽUČ - S/T CS 3.50 EUR

Crna Žuč (Black Bile) is the very first solo effort from Apsurd's singer/bassist Dragana.
The debut tape delivers six songs + intro that channel some pretty downer vibes in the form of post-punk hopelessness, with some obvious nods to the darker side of Yugo punk. Apsurd's influences are pretty obvious too, especially in the vocals department, but this is more atmospheric, slower and less noisy. The Apsurd drummer played on this tape session too so you get 2/3 of Apsurd on this one!
As for the music itself, try to imagine how TOŽIBABE would've sounded if they ditched their hardcore sound in favor of the gothic/death rock overtones they flirted with, while at the same time trying to keep on worshipping that repetitive sound that WIPERS honed on their classic "Youth of America" record. A must listen!
Recorded and mixed by D.R. Sjordgrendsten, mastered by Jimi 3B. Artwork by Bodež.
Limited to 230 pro-dubbed tapes with risographed covers.
