Crust/D-Beat Playlist

Posted in Playlists with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 3, 2013 by Magadh

We’ve been brewing up some weird stuff down in the bunker, but through the fumes it occurred to us that people might have an interest in what we were spinning in our long nights over the soilent vats. We’re going to try to offer up playlists on a bi-monthly basis, each with a thematic base. The theme here (as the title indicates) is a combination of crust and d-beat.  Discerning listeners will note that there are a couple of things in this list that are a bit marginal in terms of these categories, but I think they fit in terms of atmosphere. In the end, it’s up to you to decide.


1. Skitsystem, “Apokalypsens Svarta Änglar
2. Martyrdöd, “Vägen Ur
3. From Ashes Rise, “The Final Goodbye
4. Hellcrawler, “Devastation
5. Infäme, “Adeu Amarg
6. After the Bombs, “Bloody Aftermath
7. Monastery, “Mutilating
8. Passiv Dödshjalp, “Virtuella Bojor
9. Viimeinen Kolonna, “Sinä Häviät
10. Livstid, “Permafrost
11. Misantropic, “Raise the Gallows
12. G-Anx, “Victims of Our Ignorance
13. Instinto, “Dominación
14. Crude S.S., “Destroy Capitalism
15. Anti-Cimex, “Braincell Battle
16. Final Warning, “The Bunker
17. Disfear, “Misanthropic Generation
18. Warcollapse, “Timebomb State
19. Mördare, “Rivers of Diesel
20. Masakari, “Rapid Dominance

Review: Sahn Maru

Sahn Maru Never Too Late Inimical Records

I’m basically just working through a backlog of stuff, so apologies if you see reviews of stuff that came out a while ago. Then again, why am I apologizing to you? Read it or don’t.

Sahn Maru - Poisoned BloodSahn Maru is a Bay Area crusty h.c. act featuring two former members of the Blown to Bits. There is a certain amount of Scandinavian influence here, but it doesn’t sound like the legions of Skitsystem imitators out there. The ten songs included here do feature a lot of that peculiar d-beat picking cadence, but with a specifically West Coast sort of feel to it. They manage to sound dark and angry without too much down tuning, and the vocals are gruff without being completely incomprehensible. I’ve seen them compared to bands like Totalitär, but their song structures are kind of different and don’t quite have that straight ahead feel that characterized Ni Maste Bort. They actually remind me of Clown Alley, but with less of a metallic approach and without CA’s quirky song structures.

The subject matter here is to a great degree environmental. This carries over into the imagery included in their artwork, which really gives the impression of a planet having the very life sucked out of it. Musically this is a really furious release; punk rock with very little metal alloy but plenty of rage and aggression. The perfect background music for witnessing the decay of all life.

I occasionally peruse the website of Los Angeles based DIY clothing label Wartime Collective. During one of my recent visits I took a gander at their blog and encountered hard assed Angelinos Nomads, I was immediately blown away.

Nomads are a 5 piece who play d-beat hardcore in the vein of Anticimex and Skitsystem with a smattering of Nausea influenced guitar solos thrown in. Their tape/download release Night.Owls//Mayhem.Aficionados//Death.Seekers is unrelenting. The EP features 3 tracks of aural assault clocking in at just under 5 minutes. If you’re looking for something to rage to, Nomads are your huckleberry.
