v.a. Get Back The Discharged Arrow LP

Another japanese compilation with the awe-inspiring Crück on it! They are definitely among my favorites when it comes to late eighties thrash bands from Japan: super fast, primitive and catchy with a cool singer! Hell, yeah! Me♀ss are more metallic; one of their songs (Wreck Of Maggot) even sounds so rocking, it could almost have been written by bands like Mustang or Clown. Mad Conflux definitely have the most vicious production on this LP. Their compressed sound makes their thrashing sound even more urgent and ominous. Last are Acid whose songs are the most punky (and who sound almost tame compared to the rest…).

What arrow?

v.a. Enjoy Your Youth By This Hardcore Sampler

The biggest names on this compilation are probably the Fearless Vampire Killers, SIC and Don Don. All the other bands here only ever released tapes, 7″es, compilation tracks or splits (Mad Conflux, Scum Bag, Vulgarity Kids, Oil Shock, Disclaim, Bad Smells, Discust Boys, Final Count, Jelly Beans, Crück, Mino-5). Except for Scum Bag (Oi!-ish funny punk) all these bands play typical late eighties, US-influenced thrash with the typical japanese twist. Crück are definitely my favorites here, with great, noisy high speed thrashers like „Smash Your Friends“!

Great fucking shit!

v.a. 病原体 – Virus Compilation Jap

The Virus Compilation features pretty typical thrash from the later eighties. With tracks from Sic, Lip Cream, Fuck Geez, FVK, Systematic Death, Mad Conflux and D.O.N.D.O.N. it’s got a mixture of big and lesser known bands.

Get it!
