Sindicato Records - CD - 71:21

1097_sdrIII.jpgThird volume of Portuguese compilation of local Oi!, punk, HC, psycho, garage, surf… bands is out on Sindicato Records and you ma check 25 bands with 25 songs. I know just four bands from it (Gume, Pulhas, Blind Alley Dogs and Núcleo Duro) and I have their songs on solo records so I can´t say if other songs from other bands are new or not. Songs are in their native language (most of them) and in English. Other bands from the compilation are Trinta & Um, Booby Trap, The Psycho Tramps, Dr. Frankenstein, The Dirty Coal Train, Cadáver N' Roll, Broken Distance, Challenge, Clean Break, F.P.M., M.E.D.O., Scum Liquor, Systemik Viølence, Um Trinco No Mamilo, G.B.D.P., Era Uma Vez Um Tímpano, C4, Konflito Social, Surfenstein, Atlantida On Demand and Judeus. I really like harder stuff like Trinta & Um with their song Auto Estima (Self-confidence) and their metal/hc guitar and pure HC bands like Broken Distance (sXe) with their Sunset, cumbersome Challenge with their Coward (really great song), Clean Break (sXe) with their Hate Culture, Atlantida on Demand with their Drown the Sky and F.P.M. with their Contraste. There is also one crust/d-beat band/song - Systematic Violence - You Are Free to be a Slave or one grind G.B.D.P. - Orgia Funebre. Cover is quite simple and inside (but it is quite common in compilations) – band list with contacts plus their photos. Interesting crosscut through Portuguese street scene with covering almost all genres and fine piece for those who want to have some complex view how it is with music in Portugal.

Falcata - Forged in Blood

Combate Brutal Records - EP -

1096_falcata_fib.jpgSecond EP from Falcata contains three English songs again - Barbarians Rising and Mr. Know it All on side A and Forged in Blood on side B. Compared to the first EP they have change in line up – they add another girl on guitar – Bruna (and yes, you can hear it and Ines can focus on solo guitar– just check the solo at the end of Barbarians Rising). On vocals and bass is Joao again - Faccao Opposta (vocals), Asas da Vinganca (where he is behind drum)s. EP is second release from Combate Brutal and it is limited to 200 copies again – 100 with black and 100 with bordeaux cover + 20 test pressings. Sound is darker (which I like) and the band use female vocals in singing which is also great. Sometimes when I hear the combination of male and female vocal it reminds me Insidious Skins but there is no saxophone (most of all in song Mr. Know it All). First song is about how Lusitanian tribe stood against Roman empire. Second one is about those who were everywhere and knows everything. Last one is about backstreet unity which is forged in blood and which stood agains all. On vocals you may hear also Sun Do from Gume and Jefferson – drummer from Faccao Opposta. Cover and pictures inside are from British fantasy illustrator Angus McBride. Concept of the cover is similar as on Asas da Viganca EP– lyrics, pictures, thankslist and band photos. Fine!
