(*/10) Buchcherry from L.A. released a best of album. It’s always the question with ‘best of…’ records: who needs them? This time I can understand that the band wanted to have an album on the market before they go on tour with the Hardcore Superstars....

CD review BRUTAL TRUTH/BASTARD NOISE "Axiom of post inhumanity"

(1/10) I never thought that I ever will give a 1 as a score for a review, but I was wrong. This record is just bad. The 'songs' are just weird collages from sounds. Therefore I don't want to name this a 'song'. It is more exciting to listen to your tumble...

(8/10) Death metal records have sometimes the tendency to become boring since a lot of songs sound actually very similar. NOT in this case. Hail Of Bullets managed to make an death metal album with a lot of variety and breaks. It's great stuff to listen...
