Nerveskade/Mundo Muerto live

Saw Nerveskade (PDX) again last night along with Mundo Muerto. Nerveskade blew me away again.... Drummer tears it up and they manage to combine their noisy/blown out guitar sounds really well with their bouncy bass.... hard to explain I guess (for some reason I think about RIPCORD and [early] GAI while watching them) and must be experienced live. Super bummed that they had no new music to buy (I bought a button) since I had heard they had a "test press/tour version" of some 7" or something at the beginning of their tour. Guess I'll have to wait for the regular release....

Still haven't really unpacked so I haven't been working on recording any vinyls.... have some stuff I've already uploaded to mediafire that I just need to type out tracklists for/find pictures. So.... more stuff coming soon. I promise!

V/A - "Histeria" LP

Excellent LP compilation released a few years ago on Lengua Armada. One of the few compilations of recent years actually worth listening to since it's not just throwaway tracks from the bands. Plus, it's got a really nice newspaper type insert with full photos of the bands and a Lengua Armada discography. Remember when bands use to give good songs to compilations? Not just "demo" or "live" versions of already released songs.... Anyways, my favorite stuff on here is the LIMP WRIST, LIFE'S HALT, and DEATHREAT stuff. Although by now you can get the LIMP WRIST and DEATHREAT tracks on their respective discography CDs, the tracks are nice to have on this LP with the full artwork/lyrics. Plus, "The Ode" is probably the best song LIMP WRIST ever wrote... As of this point there is still no LIFE'S HALT discography so I guess this is your only chance to hear this stuff right now. I'm pretty sure the DS-13 and SEEIN' RED tracks are already on some CD by now as well since they have discography CDs too. ESPERANZA sucks but if I knew Steve Aoki was going to end up partying with Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan I probably would've made an effort to be his friend back then.... yeah right. Also worth mentioning is the rap part on the SIN ORDEN tracks.... Ugh.

Final Massakre - "The Bells of Hell Toll the Final Chime" 7"

Six track 7" of PDX "Full Metal Jacket D-Beat Raw Punk" from 1999 released by Tribal War Records. I think Frank/ATROCIOUS MADNESS was in this band (I remember hearing/reading this before somewhere plus it has the same P.O. Box that ATROCIOUS MADNESS used and LEBENDEN TOTEN currently uses) but not sure to what extent. Vocals sound a little similar to ATROCIOUS MADNESS but who knows.... someone please fill me in as to who does what in this band as there are no members listed anywhere on the cover or lyric sheet. As good as any of the other PDX stuff like MASSKONTROLL, BOMB HEAVEN, or BLOOD SPIT NIGHTS so you should already know whether you'll dig this or not. I like how they named a song "Probability of Deaths Construction" after DISCHARGE's "Possibility of Life's Destruction".... They also had a split 7" with DECONTROL.

1. The Final Chime
2. At The Gates of Hell
3. Death From Below
4. We Stand In Silence
5. Probability of Deaths Construction
