Midnite Madness LXXXIII—Warriors of Steel

Thanks to all who listened in live, as always, and thanks to all the promo-senders who made up the majority of this show. I will return next month on May 4th for more of the same. Got more new stuff to play, so, until then...

DEMOndays XXI

Fuck, I know these posts are getting less and less frequent, and for that I apologise, but I guess I was being a little unrealistic saying I would post every Monday in the beginning, eh. So, from now I will try to post something weekly, or whenever I can. Got loads of demos, just not enough time/desire to use the fucking internet (hate).
So with all that outta the way, here's the killer Nightmare City demo that Henry Yuan's excellent Electric Assault Records put out a few years back. They're actually playing London tomorrow night with local deathpunk scumlords, Shallow Sanction, at the Unicorn in Camden (ish). And it's free. Oh, and DJ DSOD—Amulet's Dave Sherwood on Drums—is DJing. I am hoping this broken old vessel is going to permit my attendance, but will of course be a blast either way.

Midnite Madness LXXXII—Maidens of Metal

ALRIGHT. Show 82 and number three for this year sees me return to my gimmicky old ways with a themed show—this one featuring female singers/bands only. As always, it isn't any sort of definitive list, just 60 minutes of metal cooked up for you to listen to once and never again (probably).
The ancient returns on April 8th for more Midnite Madness, and I've now got a bunch of new stuff to play so be sure to tune in then. Soon!

DEMOndays XX

I know it's been a month since I last posted a demo on here, apologies. Just been busy and sick, but mainly busy being sick. Lame!
ANYWAYS, here is one of the best demos of the so-called "modern era"—Bastard Priest's d-beat death metal blitzkrieg, Merciless Insane Death, ripped from my own copy of the demo. Yes, these tracks are the B-side of their debut "album", Under The Hammer Of Destruction, but I am fairly sure they re-mastered it or re-recorded the drums or something, because this version sounds way better. Hard to believe it is almost 10 years old, too, but really hoping for a return from these lords one day soon. Was killer to see Maim play the title track of this (with Sindre of Obliteration on vocals if memory serves me correctly?) at Live Evil 2011. Mightiest hails to Matt Mendoza and Inventor. Death metal or DIE!!!

A Fist in the Face of God presents... Too Fast to Die!!!—Sgt. Salsten's Raging Metal Mix!

Since Sergeant Salsten moved to Tasmania, his band workload has gone down, understandably (even though he is working on a speed metal project down there called Torpedo, shhh), and his time for making insanely cool mixes has increased. I've posted a lot of killer compilations on here over the years, and many have surprised with me with their selections, but Daniel's are something else.

First of all, he draws his own covers, and secondly, he usually sends what most people would consider two, maybe even three mixtape's worth of tracks, this one being no exception. I can't praise this one enough, but at over two hours running time it really shall separate the die-hards from the dabblers. I'll leave the the rest in his more than capable hands...

So Dylan asked me to do another mix and I thought this time I'll make one with only violent death and thrash metal. Some of the bands actually lean more towards speed or black metal, but most importantly it's all fast and ripping, no wimpy shit guaranteed! So grab a six-pack or two and break your neck with these intense tunes for a couple of hours if ya got the balls. This mix is way long so only for sick maniacs, thrash to the death cuz there is no tomorrow!

Midnite Madness LXXXI—Cult of Madness

ALRIGHT. Another dose for all you maniacs. Some old, some new, all shit I've been listening to since the last show, as is the way nowadays.
Apologies for the no-demo post this week, I just didn't have time what with composing this week's show and also sorting Sgt. Salsten's new mix, which I will post once VICE have posted it first (looking like it'll be next week now). For now you will have to enjoy the preview towards the end of this week's show. SOON!
P.S. The screenshot above is from the so-far last instalment of Twin Peaks, a movie compiled using mostly outtakes from the Fire Walk With Me movie—imaginatively titled Fire Walk With Me: The Missing Piecesbut also additional scenes after the last shot from the original TV series. Crazy this exists and I only found out about it last week. So, assuming I am not the only one who missed it, it is here for those of you who would like to see it. Recommended for TP maniacs only!

DEMOndays XIX

I didn't forget! Okay, I almost did, hence the slightly obvious choice here. Well, perhaps not everyone has heard this, so if you haven't, I envy you. This is one of the best demos of the 80s, for me. Its deathrashing intensity and sheer malevolence have limited my listening of this to as little as possible, as it usually makes me want to smash up the whole house, etc. haha. Death metal or DIE!!!
Necrovore (USA) Divus De Mortuus [1987]
1. Mutilated Death
2. Slaughtered Remains
3. Divus de Mortuus
4. Toxic Decay
This is one of many rips I found on the internet over the years and it is the one I've settled with cos having, like, four different versions was annoying, haha. However, if you have a better recording, higher-res artwork, info regarding the demo, etc, PLEASE either mail it direct to me here or simply add a link in the comment section. And don't try to rip it from one of the compilations or bootlegs, original tape rip please!
