Killing Joke - Killing Joke

Killing Joke - Killing Joke
(1980) Virgin

I don't know why I like this kind of music in the middle of the summer. But I do! I really do! The album cover gives a hint of what kind of music to expect - dark, violent, monotonous and grinding. I love it!

Running Wild - Black Hand Inn

Running Wild - Black Hand Inn
(1994) Noise

My summer obsession with pirate metal continues. This time it's a strange mix with aliens and pirates. Just ignore the spoken intros on two songs. The rest of the album is a true classsic - complete with almost black metal-like atmosphere and guitar on some songs. Trve pirate metal!:)

The Deep Eynde - Spell*Bound

The Deep Eynde - Spell*Bound (2010) Fiendforce

It's nice to see that The Deep Eynde are back with a really good album. In fact their best since 2002's "Suicide Drive". They're playing gothic rock again - oddly released on the German horror-punk label Feindforce! Listen to "The Haunting" and "My Darkest Hour", and you'll be reminded of what's so great about this band.

Patenbrigade: Wolff - Demokratischer Sektor

Patenbrigade: Wolff -
Demokratischer Sektor
(2008) Zweieck

An odd one this. 20 tracks, but that includes several remixes and some boring radio-"chatter". If they had shortened it to 10 tracks I think it would've been a great compilation of songs. But not all the remixes are bad, some are even as good as their main songs, and all of them adds something new - wich isn't as obvious as you think. If you haven't heared of Patenbrigade: Wolff before I think it's time for you to check them out.

Misfits - 12 Hits From Hell

Misfits - 12 Hits From Hell
(2001) Caroline

I don't know much about this bootleg compilation except that it's supposed to be The MSP Sessions August 7, 1980 and that it features two guitarists.
What I do know is that it's a damned fine compilation of Misfits hits! Too bad it never got officially released - some promos was apparently sent out but the release got withdrawn.
