Va - Disrturbance Of Domestic Peace (1996, GRE)
This comp.Lp released back in 1996 from the collaboration of the 6 bands that took part in it, alongside two occupied buildings - "social centres" : Villa amalias in athens and Villa varvara in thessaloniki. Here's propably the best bands of mid-90's in greece (sadly this comp does not include naytia and chaotic end - i think that they had already disbanded) with eleven ass-kicking diamonds. Every each-one band plays a unique style of their own that makes the listening provocative about what the fuck the next in line band will sound. All the lyrics are about social-political issues, the "scene" etc. This lp was also the first lp i ever bought (the same day i bought my first sony turntable also... so beautiful days - so energetic).
The bands that participated were :
MASTIGA : (trans. infliction, plague) they played a combo of mid-tempo hardcore with some faster parts, double vocals and a lot of drum breaks.
SHIT HIT THE FAN : the only band that you can say it's not hardcore. a lot of melodies, fantastic riffs and expressive vocals. something like the petrograd of greece.
MIASMA : ass-kicking mid-tempo hardcore punk. excellent guitar works.
ANASA STAHTI : (ashen breath) from the ashes of Levelling, ashen breath took form adding the first vocalist of chaotic end. they played a hardcore heavily influeced from the late 80's, early 90's heavy-thrash metal scene with a lot of dark, gloom lyrics about society etc... their guitarist and main song/lyric writter created the band anatellon tromos (rising terror) in the late 90's.
PANIKOS : (panic) The first greek band that had samples and a "post-rock" touch, way before this genre becomes a trend... these two songs are more aggressive and a litlle bit faster than their usual... They only band that keeps playing nowadays.
PSYHOSI : (psychosis) If a band from greece we can say that is/was underestimated, this would definetely be psychosis... Heavy, distorted guitars, heavy, distorted bass, mid-tempo drum hitting and amazing vocals with much more amazing lyrics. When i was a liitle kid i used to call them greek Amebix but the band has it's own mark and it's so fucking great. maybe my favourite band from the comp. their bassist/ singer know plays for the "anti-seller", post-rock band Incognita sperans.

Last, but not least : this rip isn't mine.
Enjoy and leave comments to tell me if you like it...
Heads Up :
I have made a mistake : when you download this album the folder says "disruption of public peace"
Change the word public with the word domestic!
