A//POLITICAL - Planting The Seeds Of Revolution

one of the best anarcho-punk albums ever and forever!.. and criminally underestimated.. I say the best album (although this one is basically the demo) and not the best band on purpose because their later works aren't even close to the power and ferocity of this one, which doesn't mean they aren't also good, just contrary they are maybe better than some which are taking bigger attention and credits..
A//Political were band from Baltimore, MA (USA) active few years in mid 90s until 2000 and this demo is from 1997 when they have finally settled down as a band after initial, as it seems, pretty turbulent couple of years with a lot of line up changes and everything else..
despite the similarities to some 80s and early 90s peace punk bands, then obvious influences from Crass, Conflict and the likes, both musically and visually, but to be honest, that's from where bunch of others (if not all) bands from 90s anarcho-punk draw inspiration and influences and that's nothing new and game changing, still they seems to be the most original and maybe the most committed, direct and often provocative, observed as the whole package, musically and especially in the lyrics in which they wasn't afraid to criticize punk scene itself.. also they were known as the ones that really lived and believed what they sang about and had huge amount of other activities and actions beside the band, as they said: "It's Not About Politics, It's About Life"..
same is with musical part which is on this album absolutely perfect.. even they are exactly what you imagine on the first when someone mentions 90s anarcho-punk, at first listen they are maybe classic for the genre, with dual male and female vocals, some spoken parts and speeches, but soon you'll realize they have that something which sets them up from the others, I'm not really sure what but I believe that's because they are so damn highly energetic and furious act, they use multi vocals often and the main two, male and female are absolutely perfect, sure they are not the best musicians out there but this is totally irrelevant in this case.. also, songs are not similar one to another and the whole thing doesn't get boring in a single moment like many others which have one or two anthemic songs which stand out from the others and are the best songs (mostly the opening ones) and the rest are somehow predictable and boring.. this isn't the case here, song structure as the tempo varies from song to song and I can't decide which one is the best to me, even crusty "Education is Indoctrination" is unbelievable energetic, contagious and perfect.. sound and production on this demo are also perfect for my taste, not polished and just as it should be, maybe one more reason why this sounds so powerful and angry..
in short, as I said in the beginning, to me this is one of the best (if not the best) anarcho-punk albums of all times, period..

- video is from awesome 6DISTRUST6 channel on youtube

- for some education, nice story about it and download link visit Terminal Sound Nuisance

fun fact: they used this awesome artwork style for which one of the members is responsible if I'm not wrong, kind of Crass/peace punk inspired, but somehow in more, I don't know, nuclear-post-apocalyptic (?!) style with this "anarchy flower" appearing on almost every release in different variants and I remember, when I was a kid that I "redraw" one of their images (the one with the kid and flower from "Propaganda By Deed") with black marker on a white t-shirt from some random anarcho flyer not even knowing about them and that they used this motive and made custom design shirt for Dislike, crust band from here and with lyrics from their song Luchar written in square shape around it which somehow fits perfectly to the image and I wear it in school and later when I basically run from home on my first Monteparadiso festival, still underage so I wasn't allowed to go.. that was some rebellious years, haha, and don't even need to mention that t-shirt was very much noticed and I was getting a lot of punk points from older crew for it, hahah..

LANDVERRAAD live in Minsk, Belarus 29.05.2013. - video

I remember this band from back then when they were active, they definitely raised up some serious dust all around and grab almost everyone attention and I remember everyone knew for them in some moment and that they were accepted well, almost everyone likes them no matter they were hardcore kids, punks or crusties, me also, they sure grab my interest with recordings of furious live shows which started to pop out every a while all over the internet.. they visited Čakovec and Zagreb at one moment somewhere in 2014 or so, Zagreb in two occasions, I think..
with their hardcore powerviolence they are maybe not exactly my cup of tea (when I was younger I listened and enjoy such bands a lot more) but maaaaan, how huge energy they was having live, that's unbelievable.. and insane.. you can't deny that.. and here's the proof..
this was recorded somewhere in Minsk 2013, during one of their countless tour.. video is from this channel:

- interview with them done during 2013 balkan tour for Leave Me Alone zine and published on DIY Conspiracy:

HATE TO STATE - Hate Demo on Terminal Escape

awesome Terminal Escape, the best blog out there, along with Terminal Sound Nuisance (both have "terminal" in name, hmmm...) almost never disappoints.. this monster of blog feeds us with cassette rips on daily basis since 2009, it means every day new damn tape in last 14 fcking years, can you at least imagine which number of tapes and amount of effort we talk about here?! - I fcking can't.. and I'm amazed every time I see new post there.. every day..
the other day mr. Wizard posted demo by Belarussian anarcho punk crusters Hate To State, until now totally unknown band to me, as many about which he writes to be honest, but when for the obscure ones from the States it isn't even strange they are unknown to me, this one somehow surprises me (positive, because it's always nice to find something new, although old, and that good) and the fact that I missed them and they are from Europe, were active in 90s and have this specific east european anarcho crust sound for which I'm complete sucker is even more surprising.. only the evidence and remainder that there's plenty of fish undiscovered in deep dark see of 90s east european crust punk..
as you probably realized by now they play classic for that time crusty anarcho punk with dual m/f vocals, demo consists of 10 powerful raw attacks, riffs and drums strongly reminds me on Totalni Promašaj and Debeli Samuraj from Serbia, which came first on my mind, probably because of the beginning of the song "I Hate All I See" but with more crusty vibe in vocals and rawer production and sound in this case and something faster than above mentioned, more like bunch of old Polish or Czech bands from those times or try to imagine rawer, filthier and more primitive Antiglobalizator, maybe more known band, also from Belarus.. considering bands name, titles of the demo and songs, cover art but most the fact from where they are coming I assume lyrics are also angry as the music and politically engaged which were almost always in common to similar bands from that era and geographical positions.. 
according to discogs this demo is from 1998 and it's only recorded material by them but in the download folder from Terminal Escape there are even 19 uncredited tracks included from who knows where, sadly without female vocals but awesome anyways..

- comment from discogs: 
"Although the band recorded and released only one demo tape (Hate Demo) they are considered as legends and pioneers of Belarusian DIY scene. Bassist Igor also released fanzines and had a distro. Hate To State was active until around end of year 2000. After the band split up most of members formed a new band called 451°F and had recorded and released a split tape in 2001. In 2013 Hate To State had a gig in Minsk after 13 years of silence. They also performed live in 2014."

for download link, nicer review than those my rumblings and to say thanx go to Terminal Escape
