What can be said,this is a blog where I will post some stuff I really like,so I think you should like it too.I am a metalhead to the heart,but I will put here every kind of stuff I like,not only Metal.I hope you will enjoy it,and let me know if there is anything needed,especially from the ex-Yugoslavia territory.
I have just one release of the late Atomsko Skloniste,two as Atomic Shelter,and two singles,and the Atomsko Skloniste discography is over.Of course,there won`t be no compilations (two of them released).This one is the first single,from their first album,the most known song from the first LP.The strange thing is that this single is released retrogradely,with the flipside from the second album (??),and as well,one of the most known songs from the second LP.But,AS were strange in some kind of expressions,so this is no wonder.Enjoy.
7 excellent bands,11 excellent tracks!I remember when I got in touch with it,Sale from KUD Idijoti got it from somebody (I think it was from Belgrade,from Gvido O.) and lend me this fantastic EP..I remember he almost forgot about it..but he didn`t,damn it..I was sooo into this EP that I recorded it on several tapes separately,just to make sure I will not loose it.You know,the gods MOB 47 and in this case RAW POWER,the phenomenal Funeral Oration and Psycho and Wretched..Quod Massacre and S.Malfunctions are here with tracks for which I am sure they surely have much better tracks,but well,in a whole this is a hell of an EP!Highly recommended!
Tracks: WRETCHED (Italy) 01.Fino in fondo 02.Schiavo del sistema RAW POWER (Italy) 03.Raw power (live) 04.You shock me (live) PSYCHO (U.S.A.) 05.End of the world SATANIC MALFUNCTIONS (U.K.) 06.Just another protest song MOB 47 (Sweden) 07.Sjuk varld 08.Logner QUOD MASSACRE (Slovenia) 09.Ponekad poneko FUNERAL ORATION (Holland) 10.Demented 11.Going further
With the previous post of KUD Idijoti`s ep,I will post today few 7 inchers,or if you like singles,which are still my favourite vinyl format. This is not anymore a so big rarity,but for all of you who downloaded the Bijelo Dugme albums,here is the single of the pre-Bijelo Dugme band,before they changed the name into Bijelo Dugme.The band will be called later by the title song of this single.For collectors of ex-Yu stuff,this is stuff you cannot miss!My contributor Florijan ripped this single exclusively for this blog,thanx! PS:I have to apologize,as the file contains the date of the release 1975,as actually it was 1973.
Now,with this one,you have them all.I mean,the Kud Idijoti`s EP`,you got all 4 of them.The first three were later released twice again,the first time as part of their first unofficial album "Bolivia Rock` N` Roll" (along with three songs from their 1986 demo),the second time on a compilation cd containing the three first unavailable and out of print EPs.KUD Idijoti are undoubtely the best Punk Rock band from this part of the world,and most important,the band that never weakened or changed their style.Get those legends from Pula.
Tracks: 01.Hocemo cenzuru 02.Vajk na bolje 03.Prezivjeti
I already had a post of this kind of music,and I remained extremely surprised when I saw that I am not the only one to like the Serbian Gypsy Music from Trumpet Orchestras,and even more,the previous post was among the most downloaded stuff on this blog!!!This is my favourite of all World Musics.So,this time we have ultimatively THE BEST OF THE BEST,the one and only Boban Markovic and his Trumpet Orchestra.Boban is acclaimed literally worldwide as the best worlds band of Gypsy music,and this cd is a kind of compilation of his early works.Recently,with The orchestra is called the Boban And Marko Markovic Orchestra,because his son Marko,also a trumpet virtuoso,joined his father in the band.If you liked the first cd+if you are no fucking nationalist+if you want to fill your drunken nights full of rakija with music for shake your body deliriously,this is what you need.Once you get hooked.. PS:This kind of music has its festival in a little west-serbian town called GUČA (read Goocha) by the beginning of August every year (this year is from Aug 6th to Aug 10th),it is 4-5 days of various orchestras playing this kind of music.There is also a movie called GUČA,released in 2006,and in the movie,of course,Marko Markovic is playing the leading role.I hope I will be able soon to bring you the soundtrack.
This video featured some scenes from that festival,featuring Boban Markovic.
And this one is Boban and his orchestra live in Dublin,watch this madness,you wish you were there!!!!

I cannot believe how much I am not aware of how much (good) bands exist in the region I live in..Varazdin and Cakovec and everything between and around is full of very good bands,and after Bad Blood,from Cakovec I bring you this great Hardcore band Youth Against,and their live recording from the club Mochvara from Zagreb,the most active underground club in Croatia,closing these days (thanx to Zagreb`s major Milan Bandic-S.O.B.).Well,at the Bitchfits gig I spoked with this guy on the pic,a very cool guy,and he told me about Youth Against,so here is this soundboard recording of a gig from year 2000.Very aggressive vocals and strong Hardcore.Recommended.
Tracks: 01.We stand as one+Who needs a state like this 02.Fight back+Prejudice+Youth against 03.Time is running out 04.This thing called life 05.Confronted 06.Lies 07.War against war 08.No mans land 09.Gajba 10.Never let go
This demo here is a very good work from a Croatian Pagan Metal band.This is their only release and it is dated 2002,so even if I found the information that they are active,it is sure that there are no recordings after this one.Seems like the reason of their inactivity lays in the death of the ir bassist Amarth in 2005 (R.I.P.).And if you search for their site,you will find one where is written that the band is prepairing new material..unfortunately,it is written for year 2006..But this one is,for the moment,and for all who never listened to this band more than enough!Exquisit is the hidden Tiamat cover of The Sleeping Beauty!!
Tracks: 01.Eastern frost 02.He came from the foreign land 03.Riverdrowning of Perun 04.Neverending at his neverending journey 05.Antichristian and pagan 06.Into fatherland 07.Island and the sea (the crowning of Rujan) 08. ..then it will own my life (+hidden track)
After Gruuthaagy,I decided to celebrate this day as day of noise and distortion,and add another post.This time is the very interesting and funny,but headache-bringing distortion-all-over one man band (again!) Rancid Hell Spawn.I posted already one album by RHS (Jumpin` Jack Flesh),so if you liked it,of course it is absolutely a must to have also this one.So,get ready for another dose of Punky distortion!!!And I am sure you will fall in love with the distorted hillbilly punk A Trip To The Worm Farm!!
Tracks: 01.Pitchfork party 02.Thug with a brain 03.Eyeball in my mouth 04.Sexy girl with a sexy gun 05.I`m in love with a gangster`s moll 06.The ballad of Bud Dwyer 07.A trip to the worm farm 08.Mansion of bubbler 09.Defribillator dreaming 10.Pig bucket 11.Axe hero 12.Brown ink in my pen 13.Oil slick surfer 14.Vermin sewer rat from hell 15.Rebel with a bus pass 16.Gastro boy 17.Drip feed baby 18.The drunken surgeon 19.Flesh mammooth 20.Eat my shoe 21.Tartrazine fix 22.Freak Orlando
This is stuff I got from Mika of Hope,a compilation of works by Gruuthaagy,the cult one-man band whose member is KKTZ,legend of the Croatian underground.Gruuthaagy on this cd is (I am no expert in this kind of expression) presenting a compilation of works between 1992 and 2000.The stuff featured is,for my opinion,some kind of dark experimental noise,and I really hope Kukatz won`t be angry on my ignorancy in this. Or,even better,let Kukatz explain this cd himself (copy/pasted from gruuthaagy.tk website):
1992-2000 collection CDR, presenting probably the best moments of my analog phase. Here you can also find part of previously unreleased first demo "THE FACTS OF NIGHT", plus it has neat cover with lot's of my art to back up the noise. If you have read comments on my previous releases you know what to expect. A document of croatia's most harsh uncompromising music project ever, no easy listening at here, an orgy of pure chaos and real noise. With this CDR one period is over. I had lot's of fun with it, and now I feel that i have done all what i have wanted in this strict analog / lo fi / total noise sphere, so it was natural to open myself for something new.
Tracks: 01.Intro 02.Face the facts 03.Society is a sick joke 04.Walk against fear 05.Medley 06.Public collapse 07.Shadows within 08.Start insane 09.Manic depression 10.Dehuman 11.Kaos kultura 12.Killed by machines 13.B.l.i.n.d. 14.Abysmal labyrinth
With this post,I invite you to welcome Darko,our new contributor from Sid,Serbia.He will help me a lot with less known bands from Serbia,a country for which I told you that is full of Metal bands.We start with this excellent and interesting Thrash/Death Metal band Sarcomman,and with their EP from 2006 (somewhere is written 2007)..What can I say;excellent Metal balancing between Thrash and Death.A three tracker you should have.
Tracks: 01.Almost dead inside 02.Humandefect 03.Addicted to all
