The third song is "Steadfast huge power" from Unwise, a Japanese band from Tokyo that were around in the 90's. I am not going to pretend I am the expert in Japanese punk, others do it far better than I, but Unwise apparently had a member of Extinct Government behind the drum kit.
I am not so familiar with the rest of their discography but judging from this song, I probably should. Distorted, bass-driven crusty punk that is unmistakably Japanese with the influence of the 80's noisepunk heros, somewhere between mid's Chaos UK and Battle of Disarm perhaps.
Next are Amen from Finland, a band that went for a moniker that is both brilliant and a bit terrible, a statement that is often valid when one talks about crust band names. I won't dwell too much on Amen now since one of their records will be part of my crust odyssey and I wouldn't want to spoil the fun, would I? But here is a trailer. Hailing from Finland, Amen was your prototypical dual-vocal 90's crustcore band, and I mean that in the best possible way.
While they are rarely mentioned in crust-related conversations, they perfectly embodied the eurocrust of the time and pioneered the genre in their home-country. A bit like Sweden, Finland has always produced tons of quality hardcore punk bands but relatively few proper crust ones, and vaguely crusty hard-hitting Finncore doesn't count. Unfortunately, their song on "Crust and Anguished" is not a good representation of their work as it is a very thin-sounding, demo-quality number that does not even come close to the crusty savagery they were capable of in A weird choice to pick that one but here you go I do like the cheesy punk drawing though, it reminds of me of Sore Throat or Electro Hippies and that is always a good thing.
The song, "Drink or not", is about the local straightedge movement and how some members of it liked to fight to prove their point. Next are Destroy! Contrary the brutal crust they served on the split with Disrupt, their song here is decidedly death-metal sounding Destroy!
Now that is a bit odd to read in since so many bands have turned all out metal in the crust world in the past 15 years but apparently, it was still a bit frowned upon in Musically, this reminds me of early death-metal, a bit raw and punky, mixed with some Prophecy of Doom. And while I'm at it, crust and death-metal don't necessarily blend well together. In fact, I am of the opinion that they rarely do and very few bands can pull a decent result from that marriage, although both genres certainly share common roots and were born at the same time.
There, I said it. The following track is much less metal and is actually made up of two songs from the great CFDL from Japan, a band that everyone kind of knows but that actually love.
Their moniker is a reference to Disorder and it stands for "Crazy fucked-up daily life" so it already gives you an idea of where they stand in the punk spectrum. CFDL claim to play "hardcore trash punk" and they are so proud about it that two of their Lp's are here to remind you of it, 's "Thrash punk 91" and the bizarrely named "Trashpunker thrash" that was released in but recorded in The band has a solid discography and seemed to love doing splits and tapes, which points to an old-school spirit that is thoroughly honourable.
My personal favourite is their fantastic "Atrocity exhibition" 12'' from , a recording that features the best production I have heard in terms of Japanese-flavoured noisy punk. They don't hide behind a wall of sound or a distortion orgy or an feedback overdose or any of the cheap tricks that the genre often fall for. To me, it is just perfect, low-fi but thick and groovy with a kind of organic quality. It is an absolute classic that probably doesn't get the recognition it deserves, especially when you compare it with the insane ravings other Japanese recordings sometimes get Oh well.
The two songs CFDL contributed to "Crust and Anguished" are certainly not as well recorded and are really punky as was the band really. One Siege cover and a super short and fast two-lines number called "Use your brain". Fun-loving, simple, distorted, fast Japanese hardcore punk with crazy vocals. Top notch. Not exactly something you would play to a distant cousin's wedding. I am not familiar at all with what the band does nowadays but their early recordings are actually really good.
Very raw, super aggressive and fast metallic hardcore punk, somewhere between Possessed, Kaaos, Heresy and Lobotomia. The band used a lot of distortion in their early days, had a really rough sound with high-pitched, raspy, mean-sounding vocals , but remained very energetic and intense, in a classic Finnish hardcore sense.
It was clearly "Finnish metallic hardcore". For some reason the song on the compilation is not representative of their previous records, in fact the usual singer doesn't even do the vocals on "Right-wing youth" this or he sings very differently on this one I have already written about SDS and their majestic split Lp with Misery a few years ago but, just in case you are not a devout follower of Terminal Sound Nuisance, here are a few things to know about this storm of a band.
They were from the Gifu area and must have formed around since you can find two rough SDS songs on a tape comp with an unfortunate title Anyway, they were thus part of the original crust wave and were its best possible Japanese incarnation.
Some might think they went a little far with the Antisect-worship but I, for one, have no problem with that if it is done tastefully more about this here. The song "Butcher" is typical early 90's SDS, metallic crust with that distinctive Japanese sound and way of singing and solid technical skills. Apart from the classic mid-tempo groovy stench opening, "Butcher" is a fast and intense song not unlike Anti-System, albeit given the SDS treatment.
As usual at the time, the band couldn't help knocking an Antisect love declaration in their artwork through the use of three skulls that are not dissimilar read "almost exactly the same" to those found on the original drawing done for "Out from the void". Punk is not hippies, but SDS certainly is crust.
Hiatus then come into the game with yet another perfectly-executed early crustcore scorcher with gruff vocals, great riffing and a couple of terrific transitions which will make everyone realize that Hiatus were actually better songwriters than most. Accusations of abuse at a shelter can cut both ways for animal welfare groups in general, Morris said. People who complained about the shelter tend to be grateful for the intervention; but tales of abusive shelters can turn other people off from adopting shelter pets or supporting their local shelter.

While no animal should be subjected to the torture of a slow death between the metal jaws of an animal trap, it's even more shocking when the victim is a beloved pet. That's what recently happened to one unlucky pet cat in Wednesbury, United Kingdom. According to witnesses, after the jaws slammed shut around his neck and throat, he flopped and jostled around frantically as it tried to free itself from the metal clasps.
