SpeedyQ's & Armaguet Nad - Untitled(S.O.D.O.M 666)

SpeedyQ's side is a bit more akin to the music he's better known for, and the sound is a lot cleaner than his 002 tracks. Nad is way out on a limb, sounding more like EPC or Attila than usual.

A1 - SpeedyQ's - La Fille Du Diable(6:40)
A2 - SpeedyQ's - K226.L.N.B(5:54)
B1 - Armaguet Nad - Psychiatric Hospital(3:34)
B2 - Armaguet Nad - My Real World(4:22)


Armaguet Nad & Fist of Fury - Untitled(S.O.D.O.M 005)

This currently will set you back anything from £200 to £400, regardless of the condition. A1 and B1 are pretty standard fare for the respective artists, but all eyes are on Huuiirr, a relentless 2-part epic which has long been a staple of just about any DJ set of this kind.

A1 - Armaguet Nad - Kind of Felony(5:38)
A2 - Armaguet Nad - Hell is Industrial(4:20)
B1 - Fist of Fury - La Haine(4:51)
B2 - Fist of Fury - Huuiir(9:29)


Angel Flo & Armaguet Nad - Untitled(S.O.D.O.M 003)

The next one here is a bit less orthodox than the last. Angel Flo chips in two tracks which are more monotonous and abstract, one featuring the old non-.wav-played-as-.wav technique to vary things up a bit, the second one is very strange indeed, probably barely playable in a set due to its farty kick and general sparseness. Armaguet Nad is a bit more DJ friendly here, Martyr Killer being a personal favourite.

A1 - Angel Flo - Electric Coma(5:12)
A2 - Angel Flo - Organic Revolution(6:36)
B1 - Armaguet Nad - Martyr Killer(5:01)
B2 - Armaguet Nad - Cocacolaïne(8:54)


SpeedyQ's & Maxitrait - Untitled(S.O.D.O.M 002)

And so the big uploading sesh begins, starting off with all the remaining records from Slaves of Devil our Master(except 10a, which is a compilation, and 13 which is pretty new).

The first is arguably one of the most sought after, and was first introduced to many through the era defining DJ Freak @ Geneva tape. This is also a high point for both artists(Micropoint adopting a one-off pseudonym), seemingly saving their most uncompromising material for this EP.

A1 - SpeedyQ's - Hard Traxx(6:47)
A2 - SpeedyQ's - Boy Friend..!!?(7:07)
B1 - Maxitrait - Poëme Industriel(5:27)
B2 - Maxitrait - Serre Les Dents(5:37)

Unilateral - Unilateral (Musiques Hybrides 9)

Another one from the French-Guy-Who-Did-One-Really-Good-Hardcore-Record-In-Bizarre-Circumstances vaults. Leonard De Leonard, as far as one can tell, is a bit of a maverick, and this label seems to deal with just about every genre imaginable. A brief glance at Discogs, his house, techno and 'illbient' releases might lead you to think that an attempt to do music of a more intense nature would result in a clichéd and uninformed product. But amazingly, the end result is a very cohesive and authentic record. Filthy and screechy enough to sit among the more severe French artists, with a strong enough sense of rhythm and occasional hip-hop references to comfortably slip into a Deathchant-esque set with. There's even a very nice and strange minimal breakcore-ish track thrown in for good measure.

A1 Quand Ça Démage (5:16)
A2 Encore (6:19)
B Poulaxx (8:52)



We now have a seemingly endless line of rips being donated by an old chum and now a great anonymous Andomorph benefactor. These are not 'new', but have been ripped over the years by both said benefactor, myself, and a few other people, almost like a private version of this blog. So, all these rips are steadily going to be unleashed here over the coming weeks. The first of this collection was up yesterday(To see what was uploaded yesterday, see yesterday's post), and the next will be up in 15 minutes, possibly a few more today. God bless.

Various - Hardcore Fever - Extrem Mission Vol 3(E Child 006)

The final release from what seems to have started off as some sort of minimal techno label. There are two 12"s in the Hardcore Fever series, and 3 compilation CDs of the same name on Omnisonus, presumably the parent label. This one features lesser known producers Delidax(now producing Electro House of some sort, god bless them) and DJ Adess(AKA Stark Miller, also now doing some sort of house music, god bless him too). It also features the debut of a young La Peste with a surprisingly direct track. The rest of the music is very much of the Liza N Eliaz school of gabber. A personal favourite is DJ Adess' Acid Q.G with its gritty percussion and nice build towards the end.

A1 Delidax - Miss Sucks (6:14)
A2 DJ Adess - Acid Q.G (4:57)
B1 Hangars Liquides - Pterodaktyl's Orgasma (5:07)
B2 Delidax - Defcore (6:53)
