AGATHOCLES/DISORDER – Total Braindead / Massacre of fish-SPLIT 10″ REVIEW FROM POSSESSED MAGAZIN !!!

Erscheinungsjahr: 13.05.2015

Power it up Records / EPLP / Noisepunk – Mincecore / Belgien – England / 7 Songs / 15:21 Minuten

Es gibt sie einfach, diese Label, die einen auf den ganzen Weg begleiten, sich selber, dem Musikstil, dem Buisness und dem Underground treu geblieben sind, ohne großes rumalbern oder aufplüstern. Mein absoluter Respekt. Power it up Records ist so ein Label. Grindcore/Hardcore Freunde dürften ja eh begeistert sein, wenn eine neue Veröffentlichung ansteht. Ich bin eigentlich immer begeister, zumal sie meine Belgier von Agathocles absolut supporten.

Und die Belgier von Agathocles machen auch den Opener und liefern uns vier neue Songs, die extra für diese Split aufgenommen wurde. Nichts neues aus dem Hause AGATHOCLES und dieses ist ein positives Statement. Ihr uftatata Grind genannt Mincecore gefiel mir auch immer und auch diese neuen Songgs machen echt Laune, Beosnders die beiden Endsongs “Anarchist spectrum disorder” und “Stick it deep” gehen voll unter die Grindhaut und düfte jeden Fan der Band und des Grinds überzeugen. Eine Band, die bis zum Ende alles durchzieht und wohl einen Splitrecord aufstellen möchte. Gnadenlos geil, natürlich nur was für Sickos, aber alle anderen können ja auch bei
Saturn oder Media Markt einkaufen gehen.Seit 1985 ( als Hellsaw) gestartet, ziehen sie ihr Ding gnadenlos durch. Wahnsinn, ich bin begeistert. Während “Total Braindead” und “Prison made of crowds” typische Stampfer sind und mit einen gesprochenen Intro eingeläutet werden, hauen die letzten beiden Songs mich total um. Ich glaube, die könnten auch belgische Volksmusik machen und ich würde es geil finden, hehe. Rauh, minimalistisch, auf dem Punkt bringen, Soziakritisch und Achtziger Grind mit old schooligen Grind Sound, ja auch dazu stehen AGATHOCLES 2015. Respekt!

Disorder aus Bristol/UK dürfte auch den ein oder anderen ein Begriff sein, denn sie sind eine absolute Legende. Diese alten Punker sind bereits seit 1980 dabei und können auch nicht ohne. Musikalisch bieten diese drei Songs eine Mischung aus Punk, Hardcore, Crust und Noise. Sie dürften einer der ersten sein, die in UK ordentlich Dreck aufgewirbelt haben und ihre Meinung laut und ordentlich ausdrückten, gegen das Etablishment. Musikalisch versteht sich, so wie es sich gehört, Musikalisch können sie meiner Meinung nach aber nicht mit AGATHOCLS mithalten. Man verfolgt ja auch ein wenig eine andere Richtung. Der Sound ist auch etwas schwächer und dünn, spiegelt natürlich die alte Zeit wieder.Obwohl ja mein geliebter Grindcore sich aus dem Punk und dem Hardcore entwickelt hat, kann ich mit der Richtung nicht viel anfangen und habe sie auch nicht weiter verflgt. Wer Pogo tanzen möchte , ist hier aber genau richtig, besonders “Victim of police” bietet sich dafür an. Typische Punkgeschichte in Richtung Sex Pistols. Dabei gehen Disorder aber wesentlich rauher und aggressiver zu Werke und man darf ihren Sound als “Noisepunk” bezeichnen. Geht gut ins Mark, ist aber nicht so meins.

Festhalten muss man, dass diese Spilt Spaß macht. Die EPLP ist auf 100 Stück limitiert, also schnell zugreifen!

AGATHOCLES-The LP´s 1989-1993 REVIEW FROM GGGG-ZINE !!!

Many folks know this band. Some bump their music reverently, some’ve popped boring,some collect their releases while not listening to them.
Whatever the case,today i am checking out fresh CD of old stagers from within belgian underground(this year they’re turning 30,this is beyond a joke!). 
I guess «sometimes they come back» is quiet suitable to this release, hehe. It has been 18 years since the moment it was issued! 
(Well, if you surf the pages thoroughly, you will find the original CD beeing sold at good price. But that is another book.) 

The release was re-energised by a german label – Power it Up, 
firstly in the form of LP and later CD-type (brand-new). You may ask: why on earth do they reissue the material and port it to CD again, if the original one is in access? Fair enough. I am launching into explaining that the original CD combines tracks from only two splits (with Drudge and Lunatic Invasion), and when reissued, there’ve been added tracks from olden split with Averno! 

The booklet is aswarm with old posters, lyrics and flabbergasting
descriptive note of Jan Frederick himself, commenting on these recordings. Taking a plunge into this CD playing, you get 34 tracks of 100% Agathocles’ raw noise! The rate of rawness and noise depends on varying blocks of recording time, but it’s impossible to miss Agathocles’ sound out! 
Needless to underline that the CD runs the gamut of their old recordings – from ’89 to ’93. 

So, the fans of early Agathocles can surely wax euphoric about this material. Hehe!

Rating: 7/10

DSC_0079   DSC_0080  DSC_0081

originally released on Torture Garden as limited 100 tape. this masterpiece its now first time on vinyl, 48 seconds of total blasting Grindcore from US and Australia. Insect Warfare is presenting 17 seconds of blastbeat, The Kill is answering with 31 seconds. Limited release, grab your copy before its gone. Original Artwork by Daniel Shaw.

 

Regurgitate/Skullhog -7″

DSC_0082

GRINDCORE. Sweden’s reigning kings REGURGITATE spew forth 3 blasts of infected and gore soaked splatter. Classic grind anthems of destruction that bring back the old-school spirit. The south of Holland brings you SKULLHOG. Spawned from a pig’s womb, this Neanderthal threesome clobbers it’s way through 3 savage tunes combining elements of grind, sludge and primitive death-metal. This is a rabid split 7″ of unmatched brutality.

 

Archagathus – Dehumanizer – LP

DSC_0083

Shift yo ass Agathocles, your space in my playlist and record shelves is detracting me from the one true mince god: Archagathus. Here is the long overdue full length; Dehumanizer, contained in this bloated grotesquery of punk is 21 minutes of the meanest mince slop, gutter riffs and choleric vocals; this sewer of music overpopulated by perversion, sonic torture and other horrors. Pathologically speaking Dehumanizer is the apex of the current mince-gore progression/regression/corruption Archagathus have been undergoing lately and as such Dehumanizer and the last half a dozen splits or so all bring strong parallels to kinsmen and split partners Grotesque Organ Defilement and Hypermesis, but most importantly the band have still ultimately kept their classic archagathus sense of identity/idiocy.

 

MANHUNT -same- LP

DSC_0086

MANHUNT are back to fuck you up and get even. 14 tracks of hate-filled dirge at velocities that approach the absurd, clocking in at just 17 minutes. A long attention span is not required but a new pair of undies and pre-whitened knuckles may be. Fans of the bands 7” ‘Human Detritus’ and split 7” with Melbourne grinders INTERNAL ROT need look no further for another consistent taste of the band’s wares, but those interested in a heavier, more considered dose of power may find a new favourite.

 

Controlled by Fear – “The Only Good Cop Is A Dead One” LP

DSC_0087

C.B.F. (Controlled By Fear – (pre-RUPTURE) formed in late 1988, with Andrew (Gus Chamber) on vocals, Matt (Stumblefuck) on guitar, Neal on bass, and Matt on drums. The band lasted barely more than a year but played many gigs in Perth, Western Australia, and were headlining shows towards the end of their short-lived career. Talentless amateur young punk musicians, ages from 16 to 20, influenced by all sorts of bands from Doom to G-Anx to Conflict to Fear Of God (whose song they stole their band name from), their musicianship improved over the months and they began to veer off in their own musical directions. Neal went on to play in Cuchulainn Powerhead, Matt went on to drum in Fat Lip & Nailed Down, and Gus & Stumblefuck went on to form Rupture at the very end of 1989. But C.B.F. was where it all started, 25 years ago, at a time when grindy/crusty hardcore was just emerging in Perth. Pestilence (with Kim on guitar, later to form Nailed Down) was perhaps the first band that brought that style of punk to Perth. But Perth has a long legacy of punk, right back to ’76/’77 with the excellent Geeks and Cheap Nasties. Where Controlled By Fear fits in to this vibrant colourful lineage, who knows, but they were certainly a hard-working (albeit drunk & stoned) underground band in Perth in ’88/’89. Fond but blurry memories for the surviving band members. R.I.P. Andrew/Gus.
On a sidenote, on the day this was recorded, an actual professional studio had been booked, but that morning the engineer called up and said some renovations were still going on & he had to cancel. So the band booked a rehearsal room, hired a 4-track, bought a load of beers & pot & recorded themselves (with the help of a friend). This LP contains this entire unreleased demo recording (remastered decades later at Stumblefuck’s “Hundskit Studio”), plus 2 live songs that for some reason were mangled on the demo. So in that respect it is completist C.B.F. The only songs missing are 3 covers, “Multinationals” by Doom, “Cold War” by Siege, & “Lowlife” by Cryptic Slaughter, all of which were always performed unhindered by any talent whatsoever. Also 2 songs that were performed live but never captured in any recording – “Woodrow’s Dead & I’m So Fucking Sad” (about Simon Townsend’s dog who jumped out of a helicopter & died), and “I Wanna Be A Thrombus Groupie” (sung to the tune of “Anarchy In The UK”, and dedicated to fellow Perth punk band Thrombus).”

 

Rupture – Sex, Drugs and Rupture – LP

DSC_0089

Nihilistic, dirty, brutal and fast material from the apes from land down under. Don’t miss this masterpiece of the “Hate City” Bourbon Crew. Better fasten your seat belts while listening carefully to this 29 tracks of full on raging, unadulterated and just straightforward fast attack in excellent sound quality

 

 

War Master/Unholy Grave – LP

DSC_0090

War Master taking their name from a Bolt Thrower song, the band might be expected to sound like that but the truth is more nuanced. These 2 new tracks of War Master drop back from their smoothly integrated style for a rougher, catchier and more swedish death metal version of their sound. War Master also rely heavily on the bounding riffs of the first couple Entombed and Grave releases, producing an urgent and jubilantly violent sound. On the flipside japanese Unholy Grave who ever true to form blurt out their logic defying twirls of old-school Grindcore entertainment in complete excess: their standard madman howls, riveting angular riffs and tremoring blasts, all lifted straight from a rehearsal recording giving in that coarse edge the band.

 

Extortion/Cold World – LP

DSC_0091

HARDCORE/POWER-VIOLENCE. Australia’s foremost power-violence export, EXTORTION, return with 11 tracks. This time a split with the long running and long overlooked COLD WORLD from Austria (not to be confused with the tough guy band). Both bands play full on raging hardcore. The focus on COLD WORLD’s side lies on their ’80s highspeed hardcore-roots (the 3 members having played in Austria’s premier band EXTREM). However the band is proudly still breaking every rule of the punk police, even if this means another 25 years in blastbeat obscurity away from any d-Beat, noise-punk or whatever-hype that just happens to be the retro flavor of the moment. Just fucking fast hardcore!
