I have rarely posted CD's, but this is a beaut that I think everyone who likes extreme music should hear. It contains everything by bastard, and was self released by the band.
People that read this blog or know me personally can attest to my love for the band Bastard. They are my all time favorite Japanese hardcore band. When Jim and I started Devoid Of Faith, Bastard were a primary influence on Jims Vox. Later we decided to cover a bastard song to pay homage to the gods("Defective Chain").
The 90's were not the best time for brutal balls out hardcore, but there were some stand outs for sure... Bastard were it for me. When I listen to this discography, and drive the streets of NYC, it makes me want to drive assholes off the road. It makes my aggressive personality even that much more aggro.
Whats not to love about this band? They play with a speedful, tight fury, that at times as is hard as the Cro-mags. The vox are a gruff barking snarl that scares most norms away in seconds. Through all this, the band still has melody and catchiness. This is a band I wish I had been able to see live.

  9. LOL!! ... at 00:33 of the first song the drummer does an accent but he's the only one that does it!!! i could see a random crash symbol hit and letting it ring out, but not damping it when no other band members throw a note over that, thats so stupid! either way besides that one absurd idea they had this sounds like great hardcore, the guitarist is REALLY fuckin good!!!!!!!!! when i first put it on i didnt like this but now im up to track 4 and all of a sudden loving it, very angry brutal stuff, thanks for posting it

  20. That cover is great, now that I come to think of it, most of the times I pick up bands i don't know judging the cover art, I know that might be deceiving but sometimes it helps.
