DO NOT TALK TO THE COPS

WHO ever you are , and WHERE ever you are, say ONLY these 5 words to police if taken into custody -
" I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY"
Remember these five words.
This will save you in many cases.
" I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY"
You can be held for what seems like days and possibly be (physically and mentally) abused by the cops, but DO NOT SPEAK TO THEM other than,
" I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY"
even if they stop at your door and ask questions, DO NOT ANSWER QUESTIONS,
" I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY"
The police have stolen from my personal belongings in the past and I wonder if those items will appear in a future crime scene!

RIOTOR (Quebec) - (2015) ''Rusted Throne'' LP --- write-up / ordering info

Here are some nice blurry photos so nobody else will use them.







I dunno man, I just don't know.

Been waiting years for the follow-up to RIOTOR's amazing (2010) debut LP, "Beast Of Riot",


and for a total of $15.00 CAD, which includes shipping costs in Canada), ordered the digipack CD version of "Rusted Throne" instead of the cassette tape from foreign lands or waiting for a vinyl edition.

The musicians in the band still are fast and heavy as fucking hell, busting out some pretty raging death metal / thrash metal.
The packaging is cool with oldschool type artwork and photos, with lyric sheet included. The production is perfect.

BUT...
What the hell happened to Ismarevil's vocals ??

Sure, he sounds MORE raw and bleeding and raspy this time, but I miss the "Quebec/French"-type accent from the first album and demo tapes.
That was part of the charm, Ismarevil reminded us of Snake from VoiVod, or Stephan Whitton of Soothsayer with that Quebecois sound.

Now, he kind of sounds the same on every song, which makes it harder  to remember any of them.
Did he blow out his voice previous to recording the album ? had a cold ?
Too much rehearsal time before going into the studio? Too many live concerts before recording?
Something changed !!



anyways, maybe I will get used to it...

If any of you like it brutal and uncompromising, like Morbid Saint, Holy Moses, Sentinel Beast, etc., you will dig it.

Death Sentence


This was one of the first hardcore bands that I heard that appealed a lot to me, even as a metalhead., with their Not A Pretty Sight (1986) LP.

I don't know if they were ever really labelled "crossover", but they had metal-edge guitars and some metal riffing.


They disappeared I guess after they made a second LP on Fringe Records, which had some hard rock songs, but it did yield a music video that got a lot of airplay "Danger Zone", plus a killer circle-pit song that was on the B-side of that 7 inch single, "I Want A Woman From the Soviet Union" (Danger Zone / I.W.A.W.F.T. Soviet Union ‎(7")

Armed & Hammered ‎– It's About Fucking Time (1997)

Alrighty,
I started looking online for any Armed & Hammered music downloads,
(you can read some band history + info here -  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armed_and_Hammered
 or here - -  http://www.punkrockplanet.com/music/bands/armed-and-hammered/  )
so, I was looking for the demo tape with guitarist Crazy Dave (who became  Hardcore Dave, but I bet nobody remembers the name change or why...hmmm, I forgot why it was changed too..)

(here is something else Dave created http://torontothrash.blogspot.ca/2014/11/dave-mcleod-ex-armed-hammered.html )

I found this free download.

Thanks to the band for being cool and sharing !


http://armedandhammered.bandcamp.com/releases

 The only merch they are selling is a funny t-shirt, and I probably will buy that eventually, but still want to get again a copy of the old 1991 tape!
PS.
I am pretty sure I remember in the early or mid-1990s, their singer, Mopa Dean, was a radio dj on a Toronto college or university station.
Or  is he still a dj, after all this time ?

or embarrassing to all involved.

RAZOR history 1984

This below, you already read half of it,  the part with the1984 live at Larry's Hideaway review is here -  http://torontothrash.blogspot.ca/2014/09/glen-salter-review-of-slayer-razor-show.html

Since I don't have a copy anymore of Metallic Assault  #1 (or of #2 !) fanzine, I will guess this is where the RAZOR history 1984 by Derek Emerson  is from.

Thanks to the original uploader, who photocopied and pasted 2 different pages into one...
....and Thanks to Googleseach.

annnnnnnd
RAZOR's 1987 LP Custom Killing is back in print, and on VINYL !

review - Vio-lence / Defiance / Overthrow , Thursday October 4, 1990 The Apocalypse Club

I was remembering that Overthrow are to be released on vinyl
 http://torontothrash.blogspot.ca/2014/08/overthrow-to-be-released-on-vinyl-in.html .

Here is a review I found online, taken from an old fanzine or newspaper.
Thanks to the original uploader.

I barely remember that concert.
By the time Vio-lence hit the stage though, MOST of the audience had gone home!
I can't remember why, but they started playing after midnight or 1 am!
the last TTC subway train and last bus for many was between midnight-1:30 am (I think).
Not everybody lived downtown and could walk or take an all night streetcar home.

Another thing I remember was the usual thing, a bunch of assholes standing on the stage all around and blocking the view of the band ,so the rest of us could barely  see anything. (The ceiling was only about 7 feet high for crying out loud).

All the bands delivered good sets, but think I was tired of the Apocalypse Club and that bullshit of not seeing anything for half of the shows I attended  there.
The more popular the band, the more likely I would not see anything.
It was great for local bands and all ages shows though.

Here is some stuff I took from Dark Legion's MySpace years ago.
Interview taken  from Keelhauled ,and Doomhauled fanzine #1 back cover, with a review. (both released in 1990 )

The quality degenerated / shrunk, but that's what happenes to jpg's apparently, compared to gif files or other types of pics like png's.
