DDI : Due Parole : Pazzi da asporto (1995)
How to communicate a feeling.. this empathy with non humans to feel hatred towards your own kind for these acts of betrayal. I am sickened by your smiles and jokes at their expense. Belittle rape and slavery with little more than ignorance. (You say I am) belligerent and self righteous, sensitive and deluded. My words brushed off with platitudes of maybes and unfeeling. We didn’t always feel this. We denied it like everyone else. It took time to make connections, and now we eat our bloody words. So quick to call us zealots.. that we preach a false sermon, yet our conclusions came from learning where our food comes from. We wrote a whole record to this sickening industry.. a choice to eat or a right to life? It all comes down to this. A blot upon our record taken down a peg or two. I am not a living grave. Our very anatomy, herbivore. I am not a living grave. Define our biology, herbivore. Their lives are in your hands.. there in your throat, rotting inside of you.
I just linked you to both in case you missed it. Download. Listen. Support what these incredible musicians are doing!
Gattaca - Gulag
Extreme face-melting noise is made by the Czech Republic grindcore band Lycanthrophy who have been around since 1998. Whilst the instruments are pounded at unbelievable speeds, the high pitched screeches make your blood curdle. Definitely for those that love it fast and loud.
Ekkaia - Mientras Dormimos
Donde antes crecían árboles
Ahora crece cemento
Ahora crecen los niños
Rodeados de muros!
En los patios de los colegios
Que les enseñan a curarse a base de pastillas,
A pasar por encima del resto
Para sentirse superiores a sus semejantes.
Hasta el día en que traguen el espectáculo
O se una a nosotros
En la caza por la libertad
Y lo salvaje,
En la búsqueda de nosotros
Y del tiempo que nos han quitado.
En el abismo de los bárbaros las hogueras arden cada vez con más fuerza.
Personal note: my favorite crust-punk band ever. Maybe their philosophy is very radical, but i really don’t care, many aspects of their philosophy had very sense in many ways. Ekkaia is more than riffs and voices, this band had great lyrics full of crust-punk culture and a notorious sludge sound!

Argue Damnation (JAPAN) - Summer of hate ‘99
I’ve got their split with Boycot (French powerviolence FFO Seein’ Red), eight inches of white vinyl rage. Part of the never sell pile.
