FEAR OF EXTINCTION - Winter Extinction 2012 Tour EP

FEAR OF EXTINCTION – Winter Extinction 2012 Tour EP Prague D-beaters FEAR OF EXTINCTION have been a firm favourite of mine since first hearing their debut EP. This latest release recorded at the same session as their debut EP is a limited 150 copies pressed EP that was released for the bands “Winter Extinction European 2012 Tour”. FEAR OF EXTINCTION play fucking raw DIS-crust punk and draw their influence from the fucking best… “Raped Ass” and “Victims of a Bombraid” era ANTI CIMEX, CRUDE SS and of course early DISCHARGE. Four songs of high quality and no bullshit D-beat raw crust punk. Guitars are rough and distorted, drums hard and driving and vocals fucked off and angry and like their debut EP the recording sounds amazing, totally fucking raw and dirty while still maintaining plenty of power and intensity. FEAR OF EXTINCTION are a great band and I can’t fucking wait for their full length 12”, rumoured for release later next year. Co-released by Phobia Records and Riotstarter Records.

BROTTSKOD 11 – S/T EP Fucking yes!!! The debut 7” from Östersund’s zombie crust punks BROTTSKOD 11. Following on from last years excellent “Levande Döda” demo these Swedish living dead punks serve up four new pissed off songs of fucking raw kang crust. BROTTSKOD 11 have a definite nineties Scandi crustcore vibe going on bringing to mind “Profithysteri” and “Ondskans Ansikte” era SKITSYSTEM but at the same time reminding me of more current Swedish D-beat crust bands like DÖDSDÖMD, KONTROVERS and WARVICTIMS.  BROTTSKOD 11 play some fucking high quality crust with memorable guitar riffs and threefold fucking raw and forceful vocal delivery. Head and shoulders above most bands of this genre and comes as no surprise to find Jocke D-takt on bass from such recognizable D-beat hardcore punk bands as WARVICTIMS, ELECTRIC FUNERAL and DESPERAT. This is some seriously fucking good shit from BROTTSKOD 11. Released on the excellent Czech label Phobia Records as a one time press of 500 copies with a limited edition of 54 copies that have a screen printed hand numbered cover and come with a badge and a patch.  (Phobia Records c/o or email
