PORCELAIN FOREHEAD : "Right now! - The world needs a clear head" 7", 1983, CANADA, ONTARIO, Ottawa

Good, diverse & original punk release with aggressive sound. Singular artwork cause it was one of the first colored silk screened sleeve (front) + stamped titles (on the back) that I remember...

STATE OF CONFUSION : From "6.3 million acres" LP, 1986, USA, IDAHO, Boise

Excellent speedcore strongly inspired by SEPTIC DEATH on some tracks. Powerful insane metallic guitars, generic, simple but tight hardcore punk from IDAHO.

TOXIC ZOMBIES : From "Die toxic" LP, 1987, USA, NJ, Brick

Fine and typical MUTHA RECORDS release. Some tracks are fast melodic hardcore punk, some are only punk, others are more garage and last are speed metal punk... For the MUTHA RECORDS' fans or North American releases' completists... But a good surprise for one of the last MUTHA releases!

VIKTIMZ OF SOCIETY : From "Wicked rock music is killing our children" LP, 1986, USA, IL, Chicago

Another mid 80's gem from Chicago, IL with Joey Vindictive (vocals). Crazy, fast uncontrolled snotty hardcore as its best. Re-released on CD with the original demo plus a practice for rrraw-X, an instrumental punk band Joey put together in the late '80's.

I. D. UNDER : From "The lords of nothing" 12", 1986 USA, IL, Chicago


Excellent plain three-chord hardcore punk. Think early HONOR ROLE but with a more melodic singer + less fast and crazy parts. This release got a decent production so the power is there!

THRETNING VERSE : From "Time For War" 7", 2003, USA, CA, Industry

 Female fronted political hardcore punk band, fast aggressive and killer! Jake Smith of Crucifix plays guitar in the band... This is a must have!!

PANDEMONIUM : "Wir fahren gegen dreck" LP 1984, NETHERLANDS, Venlo

One of the fastest release of the 80's, great Dutch thrash attack... A total classic from Europe!

THE VERMINES : "Bad childhood" LP 1983, FRANCE, Rouen

Early French punk band with a strong Aussie punk rock bands influence. Their first LP, rare but internationally underrated in my humble opinion...
