DEMOndays XVIX

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!

DISCLAIMER: If you own the recording and want it removed, please do not be an internet snitch and make a DMCA claim, just email me or leave a comment and I will remove it. Thanks.

DEMOndays XVIII

PhotobucketTime for another one of my favourites of recent years. Okay, I didn't realise it is as old as it is until I started this post, but you know what I mean. Just great metalpunk all-round here and shouts to those who 'got' the intro to "Christian Wimps"!

If you would like to read an interview with Victor, click here [2014] or here [2011], or to listen to a mix he did for me, click here. These MP3s came from the man himself with these words—"TOTAL SUPPORT TO DOWNLOADS... BUT BUY THE STUFFS IF YOU LIKE. SUPPORT THE BANDS AND UNDERGROUND LABELS". Hails eternal!

Whipstriker (Brazil) Midnight Crust [2010]
1. Bombhead
2. Self Destruction
3. Under Vigilance
4. WCA (World Cup Alienation)
5. Christian Wimps

DEMOndays XVII

ALRIGHT. Time for a demo from my city of birth, Dublin. Yes, Disguise—featuring both string-players from Zom—play the kind of caustic, unwavering d-beat frenzy that seems to be most popular here on the DEMOnday thread. Fuck, there may even be the odd Zom riff in there, too. Apologies for the low-quality, but the guys are selling it here at a higher rate, so you know what to do. It's ripping stuff, be brave!
Disguise (Ireland) Demo 2012 [2012]
1. Useless Law
2. Disguise
3. Altered States
4. Total Aeon
5. Laughter
6. Nuclear Winter
7. Moral Hysteria
8. Roots
9. Poison Reality

And we're back. Yes, this year sees the return of the old show in a new format. Well, it's half the length, BUT, as this is the case, you get double the quality. Not bad, eh?
Shouts to NTS guys, promo warriors and you, the listeners, as always. See on the 10th of next month for more metal, punk, metalpunk, and the like. SLÁINTE.

I know it's confusing for some [me] that midnight is actually the next day, haha, but whatever, see you then...

Lastly, would just like to a send the mightiest HAIL out to a YouTube user mysteriously titled "A .Hc" who has been compiling ALL my shows and mixes into YouTube playlists. Crazy. I only found this by total accident last week when trying to find a link to an old mix. So, if any of you love the music I play but hate to hear me say ALRIGHT and ANYWAYS and my usual, dry soundbytes over and over, then this is for you. Go on, click here to take me out of my radio show, haha. Again, huge thanks to the user for all his endeavours. If you get in touch, A .Hc, I might have something for you...

DEMOndays XVI

Definitely one of my all-time favourite thrash demos, this one. Evil and fast—just how I like it. Download and THRASH!!!
Desecration (USA) Psycho [1985]
1. Intro
2. Psycho
3. Death's Revenge
4. Halloween
Most of these files are rips from the internet and some, as killer as the music is, are not very good/high quality recordings. Also, sometimes the artwork is incomplete or low-res. 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. Go on.

DISCLAIMER: If you own the recording and want it removed, please do not be an internet snitch and make a DMCA claim, just email me or leave a comment and I will remove it. Thanks.

A Fist in the Face of God presents... Full Speed Ahead Vol III - A Mix by Hades & Olof

You know, with every year that passes, the 80s get further away. Luckily for me, missing the 20th century is almost a worldwide hobby these days, and what better way to roll back some musical years than by blasting your ears with the shrieking sounds of 1980s speed metal.
It was on this year's first day, as I cursed the awakening of yet another year further from metal's golden age, when I got an email from my buddy Theodor "Hades", informing me of his latest mixtape, this time featuring tracks picked by Olof of the Swedish speed metal band Enforcer. And boy, did they do good, even throwing in a good few tracks from bands I'd never heard of before. Over to them...

A few words from Hades:
For the new Full Speed Ahead compilation I asked my pal Olof Wikstrand of the band Enforcer to join me in selecting half of the tracks, because we both worship this genre and I knew he'd pick some kickass tunes. I'm totally satisfied with the result, and I'm sure it's going to interest anyone who likes fast 'n' wild heavy metal, so play it loud and bang your skulls!
And from Olof:
Hades asked me if I wanted to join him for the next Full Speed Ahead compilation, so of course I immersed myself right into it and collected a bunch of my favourite tracks of both well known and some more unknown bands. Speed metal is, in my opinion, the ultimate metal genre, being the most aggressive, passionate, heavy and serious. The energy level is higher than any of the modern shit and contains everything I could possibly ask for. Enjoy!
TRACKLIST:
01. Powerlord (USA) - "The Invasion of the Lords" [1986]
02. Mad Max (Germany) - "Shout and Cry" [1984]
03. Fingernails (Italy) - "Just Like You Want" [2006]
04. Lizzy Borden (USA) - "Godiva" [1985]
05. Randy (Denmark) - "The Beast" [1986]
06. Znöwhite (USA) - "Do or Die" [1984]
07. Acero Letal (Chile) - "Por la Gloria del Metal" [2009]
08. Blind Guardian (Germany) - "Trial By the Archon/Wizard's Crown" [1988]
09. Van Halen (USA) - "Hot for Teacher" [1984]
10. Death Dealer (Canada) - "Cross My Way" [1983]
11. Impulse (Bulgaria) - "Gladiator" [1989]
12. Kratos (USA) - "Iron Beast" [1985]
13. Terminal (SWE) - "Satanski Narocila" [2015]

LONG LIVE THE LOUD!!!
