Wild//Tribe - Endless Nights

Found this band on the net "by accident" and fuckin' blown away. Wild//Tribe comes from texas and share members with the great crust/core band Unit 21 (or Tribe is the new band of that fellows, i don't know for sure).

So, i don't really have so much to say.. Here we have a band that combines great japanese hardcore with that Tragedy pogo parts. They keep on reminding me the better stuff of World burns to death (early days) with that metallic edge d-beat or how Masakari would propably sound if they didn't change so much their sound after their first 7''. This is a 6 track album with great tracks that will make your neck ache and knees broke, and by the way this is awwweesome. Cover art by Sugi!

Burn Again - Excuses for apologies

Let's get this straight, this post is definitely not for those who don't afford modern styles of music, talent, well played crust and the land finland. It's also not for those who wear police sunglasses, eats ice-cream in a cool shiny day or even think that they live in a perfect world. This world has hate, famine (and Darkthrone) and Burn Again, a band who can drop the whole sky in your little head (as their track "the sky is falling" declares).

As my good friend billy asked for some scandi-crust i felt i owe him a post, not that his taste is similar to burn again, but at least i tried. So, let's start with the infos. "Excuses for apologies" is the cd release of the band's demo alongside the side of the split with Lahdon Aika (also a killer band from finland. Here you can download some tracks the band offers for free). It has been released in Japan by Acclaim, Urban resistant and Reset not equal zero records.

Here we have pure d-beat orgy with tones of modern crustcore guitar leads and riffs, melodic and catchy bridges, fast drums and dual male vocals, both angry and mean. I know you think From Ashes Rise (also Never Built Ruins and the other brutal neo-crust german bands) etc and you should do, but here is something bigger than just "neo-crust" label, it's about heart, passion and beating, or even better i like to think is the legacy of another great finnish band called Sharpeville. So, be ready to feel the sky crushing you.
