Cognitive Dissonance - Prison Under The Cross [EP] (2010)

Download via MegaUpload

Pounding war drums, Flooded frozen basements, buzz-saw guitars, tortured shrieks. This is Cog D. This is their second release and it fukking slayz 4 dayz. All the best elements of D-Beat, Thrash, and Black Metal combined into one huge slab of wax. I think this 7" is still available, so do yourself a favor and pick it up. You wont regret it.

Celestia / Goatfire - Split [EP] (2001)

Download via MegaUpload

Celestia hails from France and plays excellent LLN worship. "Darkness Enfold The Sky" is played at blistering speeds, creating an extremely chaotic and hateful sound while still managing to be melodic. The distortion on the guitars is total fuzz. It sounds like a fart played through a bunch of effects pedals.
Goatfire, from Italy, plays evil as fukk black thrashing death. The intro to their side is some sort of whack-ass techno sounding beat, but don't let the rave music fool you, it leads into pure debauchery and sin.

Syphilitic Vaginas - Black Motor Covenant [EP] (2008)

Download via MegaUpload

Absolutely essential EP from this G.I.S.M. worshipping D-beat sleaze metal straight out of none other than the land of the rising sun. No one makes music like the Japanese. They're on a whole other level of ripping than the rest of the world. Raw, but not in the trendy sense of the word. Fuck Off All One.

Dispirit - Rehearsal at Oboroten [MC] (2010)

Download via MegaUpload

This band has apparently been around for 10 years and just released their first rehearsal tape.  Holy shit.  If this is a mere rehearsal and they are seasoned veterans of playing live, I curse my mid-west roots more than ever.  The flag-bearer of this noisy, mid-tempo black metal band is John Gossard of Weakling and Asunder fame.  It's like he took the shoe-gaze-ingly addictive USBM melodies from the former and combined it with the heavy trudging pace of the latter, then threw in gallons of raw production (possibly owed to the fact that this is a rehearsal tape, I dunno, we shall soon find out with the next release).  I really hope the production stays like this.

Shitfucker - Human Disorder [MC] (2008)

Download via MegaUpload

Total ripping, raw, drenched in reverb d-beat crust. Falling somewhere along the lines of G.I.S.M. and Bathory. Essential.
