We've been waiting for ages to get this package in and with the ever dropping aussie dollar it looked like it may just never come but we managed to wrangle it all together and get it here for you lot!
The amount of variety here is pretty outta the park you've got everything from Shoegaze to Goregrind, Death Rock to Crossover, Death Metal to Oi! and everything in between...there's something for everyone.
Check these photo's below for a look at what LP's we've managed to grab.
Below that we'll go through 7"s and some other stuff.
Top picks out of this lot that aren't already sure-fire winners would be the new BROKEN PRAYER and VAASKA but also pay some attention towards the super quality re-issues with TOXIN III and DISARRAY discographies, two quite under-documented bands which should gain your attention for their own merits.
Of course get your hands on re-issues of the YDI discography and the CONCRETE SOX reissue too.
As you can tell we've got a fair few reissues or "un-earthed" records in this order, have a geez at that AWESOME reissue job of the CHARRED REMAINS compilation, comes with a wicked 'zine showing off the excellent inserts and artwork from these bands. The EXECUTORS album comes out as a tough underdog, doing a great job of a more aggro version of Blitz, Cock Sparrer or whatever the hell, real anthemic catchy stuff.
In the world of 7"s you'll be able to get every single one of the DISCHARGE EP's reissued by HAVOC RECORDS along with the FINAL WARNING 1983 demo released by BLACK WATER in Portland.
We picked up some stock from the Armageddon Shop records label so there's the DEEP WOUND EP reissue, all those new DROP DEAD splits (Systematic Death, Ruidosa Inmundicia, Unholy Grave).
Plus these few from around the place...
OBLIVIONATION - Cult of Culture EP
Rattens Krater - Stora EP
Rattens Krater - Nordva EP
Pagan Rituals EP
We've also managed to grab a limited amount of copies of "All Ages: The Rise and Fall of the Portland Punk Scene 1977 to 1981" which goes into pretty lengthy detail about a time before Portland was known for it's ripping hardcore, crossover and the like, this book gives you insight into stuff such as the WIPERS, SADO-NATION and the early years of Poison Idea with heaps of awesome extras.
