The Scoundrels from Zundert were one of the first hardcore bands to emerge from the Netherlands, if not THE first (their debut recordings were released in 1981, the year Lärm formed). Patrick Delabie played guitar and sang for this legendary unit and remastered these ancient tapes himself earlier this month. The zip file includes their 1985 demo tape "UFREETTOEMOEF" (including the artwork), the full 1981 demo (!) and some live songs from 1986 recorded at Hotel de Roskam in Zundert. After this they went on to release 2 awesome albums before splitting up a few years later. This is a must-have for everyone interested in 80's hardcore punk. Download it here:

It looks like Righteous Pigs are reuniting for Maryland Deathfest 2013 which is pretty cool. I dug up their 1987 demotape and found a short live set from February that same year, recorded at the Elks Lodge in Las Vegas. Not exactly overproduced material to say the least, but surely awesome stuff. Zip file also includes some sick flyers. Get it here:

The past couple of months we have released two 12" records that go straight into the top 5 of best Black Death releases so far. The Light Brigade's "The History Of Light" and All Star Galaxy's "Forever Endeavour" contain a shitload of indie rock hits for everyone who likes artists such as Big Star, Guided By Voices, Love, Byrds, Beatles, Replacements, Johnny Cash, Hüsker Dü or Mitch. In fact, 90% of both new records are performed by ex-members of this last-mentioned band whose swang song "Razzle Dazzle" was released in the year 2000 and definitely stood the test of time. You can download it right here, and if you like it (of which I'm sure) you can still get it from our webshop, and of course we highly recommend the new efforts. Great stuff:

01. Frozen Solid Under Siege
02. Ex-Gladiator

To prepare for "Good Cop Bad Mood" (the album I posted earlier this month), Otis did a demo session at Studio 195 in 2006. These takes sound really great, in a way they are kinda laid back compared to the actual album versions. Download them here, I also included the download link to the album again:

13. Ex-Gladiator

In 2007 Otis released their debut album. It was produced by Patrick Delabie & Vincent Koreman, and the front cover features John de Haas dressed up as a cop. These 3 ingredients, along with the 13 devastating noiserock / hardcore punk anthems on it make this a mighty fine first album. The press came up with comparisons to At The Drive-In, Refused, Snapcase, Fugazi and The Melvins and they were right on the money with that. Too bad the band itself was trying to sound like Queen. We got a few copies left so be quick if you still want to own one! If not, then just download it here:

Car Chase EP



The Unborn
"Car Chase EP" (2011)

01. Car Chase
02. False Teeth
03. Kaputt

The Unborn's third album "Massavalpartij" will be out in a month or so. As a teaser to this release the band now gives you this free digital EP featuring a shitty editted version of the track "Car Chase" plus 2 never before released songs straight outta the vaults of Studio 195. All three songs are instrumental so I guess this is their "Process Of Weeding Out". This EP clocks in at 7 minutes all together while the new album barely lasts 10 minutes, so once again we have an Unborn release that makes no sense at all. Anyways, stay tuned for "Massavalpartij" (10 songs on a 7") later on, and grab this "Car Chase EP" including its super fancy artwork right here right now:

Somewhere near the end of 2005 we formed Otis, wrote a few songs, booked Studio 195 and released the outcome on a split 10" with our good friends Daily Fire from Leiden. Daily Fire died a violent death last year, and since they didn't release anything after this 10" it is now their belated swan song. To celebrate the 5 year anniversary of this record Black Death is gonna re-issue the thing with new artwork (pictured here) soon so keep an eye out for that. Meanwhile, check it:
