Blood Lake - Sink Or Swim Baby

Blood Lake was another California band. I first discovered them during the great BCT quest. They appeared on #24, Car Crash Music. I then asked you fine people if anyone had any more and here it is. Damn good punch-in-the-face hardcore.

Half Off - Same Old Story

We're going to go a little deeper into the vaults today. At least deep in my vault. Over the next few days I'm going to be posting tapes from bands that I had never heard of back in the day, but discovered through the magic of Blogging. And we start with the southern Cali band Half Off. Or 1/2 Off. Or, if you know the neat little "Alt+0189" trick, ½ Off. Good hardcore here. Enjoy!

Subhumans - Demolition War Parts I-III

Here is what I believe to be the very first release from the legendary Subhumans. Not to be confused withe their debut vinyl, also called Demolition War. So I guess that'd be Part IV. Anyway, this one puts together live tracks from two diffferent shows as well as well as practice tracks. Shit like this really makes me nostalgic. A great tape, indeed.

Rövsvett ‎– Hunden Beskyddar Människan, Men Vem Beskyddar Hunden ?? Demo

Rövsvett blasts some sloppy no-frills hardcore from Sweden. And I use the terms 'sloppy' and no-frills' complimentarily. Google Translate tells me the English translation for the title is "The Dog Protects The Human, But Who Protects The Dog??". So, coupled with the excellent tape cover, their sense of humor is there.

The Disturbed + Chaotic Subversion Split Tape

We got a massive dose of Scottish hardcore today. Some good old fashioned angry stuff to get you going. Released sometime in the late 80's it collects demos, practices and even a couple EP's in the mix. The sound quality is low, but the music is great.

Civil Dissident - Fourth Rate American Thrash Tape

So, from what I've read Aussie band Civil Dissident had an early release reviewed by MRR. The reviewer referred to it as "Fourth Rate American Thrash". And they chose to run with that. Releasing this tape in 1984. I think the reviewer was having a bad day, because this is some good stuff.

Peace Corpse - Self-Titled

I always loved this band. Unfortunately there's just not alot of stuff that ever made it to a recording. This cassette comprises their incredible 7", plus extra "iffy quality" live stuff.
