Crushing new release from this long running Australian band. 2 previously unreleased ep’s on two cd’s, packaged in a 6 panel digipack with booklet. A must for any collector or lover of heavy music. You can purchase the release here.
This album is a compilation of remastered tracks from the band Zurzir, featuring guest singers from throughout the world. Check out a promo video and review, awkwardly translated from the orginal Finnish. You can pick up the cd from our distro here.
D88 Records and Europa Erwache Productions are starting to record foreign bands with this album. A bold project in a highly competitive market! The game starts with the project album of the Brazilian (!) Band Zurzir, on which the band has made music, but the vocal parts are the responsibility of the singers of RAC bands from different countries.
Operating since 1999, Zurzir has released five full-length albums as well as a bunch of joint recordings. The band is familiar with the band only from the Hewerskins collection Crew 38 Sampler a couple of years ago. On that record, the band made e.g. the song “Hammerskin Nation,” which on this album is shouted by Marder Aleksi accompanied by the backing choir. The song is one of the most functional strokes on the album, but the same cannot be said for all performances. For example, Russia’s most famous RAC band, Kolovrat’s Denis, sang the song “Rasovoye velichiye” (from “Grandeza racial”) not just because of language and singer overcrowding. In metallic RAC rounding, the Russian language is absolutely disturbing, while in black metal, for example, it sounds quite natural again.
Finland is comfortably represented on the record. In addition to Alex Marder, the album will feature the Voices of the White Devils (“The Last Judgment”) and Muke of Mistreat (“For Glory”). The songs are not memorable in their kind because Zurzir’s compositional material is somewhat generic. As musicians, they do their job well, but the band doesn’t offer actual sing-along hits except for a few namup pieces.
Twelve performances compiled from Zurzir’s extensive discography are suitable for a friend of the metallic RAC for the sake of Finnish singers alone. The most memorable performances are by far the most internationally known names, Deathshead’s Jesse (“Always forward”), Aryan Rebels ’Barfly (“ Stärke des Kriegers ”) and Bully Boys’ Scott (“Time Bomb”).
Hopefully this high-profile international collection (score from a stylish digipack!) Will give the Finnish lafs more new attachments.
All Punk bands should have strange and obscure 7″ releases and since their inception in 2014 The Yardbombs have embraced this idea. To date the Australian band has recorded four 7″ EP’s covering diverse interests such as the Dead Kennedys, Hate rock bands who have changed their stripes, and possibly strangest of all a Xmas album.
This CD compilation brings together all the tracks from these various releases, remixed and remastered. In addition to this there are three new unreleased bonus tracks. The release will have a limited edition cd run and be available for digital download. The album has 23 tracks and the cd will include a 12 page booklet featuring the art of all the vinyl releases.
We’ve added a few copies of the latest project from RAC stalwart Ken Mclellan and Hungarian band Arrow Cross. This being their third collaboration the album is called “Three At Last”. A solid effort, well produced and a must for any fan of Ken and Brutal Attack
We’ve just added this cd to our store. Sons of Odin is a new project by Canadian vocalist Griffin. Known for his role in such bands as Stonehammer and Aryan, Griffin has been active in the music scene for decades. This time teaming up with Hungarian band Hundriver to deliver a fresh sounding classic RAC style album. While not delivering any shocking surprises this album fits comfortably into the RAC genre and will a welcome addition to the collections of and stalwarts of the scene and those who are fans of the tradiotional skinhead oriented style. Probably Griffins best release in recent years.
*update – since this was posted we have sold out of Deaths Head – Krieglied on CD. Hopefully we will get more copies soon, though this might not be possible. For those interested we also have the album in LP format.
We’ve added and replenished some new titles. First up we have WHITE FORCE – Sentries of the Blood. This is a limited edition CD Ep release from a new Aussie RAC/Hatecore project, and well worth a listen.
Second we have restocked the 2008 WW2 concept album Kriegsliedfrom Australian metal stalwarts DEATHS HEAD. The band spoke about the album at length back when it was released, you can read the article here.
