Seven bands on a 45rpm 7“ compilation. Seems like I won't be confronted with epic progrock anthems here and to be honest I am much better off with this stuff here. This little piece of vinyl unites germany's cream of d-beat and crustcore sensations and a damn lot of incest as the release show in Hamburg's Störte proved. The bands were rotating but somehow at least one musician also stayed on stage or climbed back up after a short break. A friend left during the third band of four (Burial, Doomtown, Solid Decline, The Now-Denial) saying he has had enough Tragedy coversongs for one night and well exept the great Now-Denial taht he missed that night the other three were indeed pretty similar and I myself didn't manage to attend the whole sets of all three bands though they all pretty much kicked ass...
Besides the four bands of said night in Hamburg this compilation also features Chainbreaker, Bombenalarm and Amen 81. All bands chose good songs for this one. Chainbreaker win the prize for the best song title with „dorf nazis must die“ and their song alongside with the one by The Now-Denial also marks the highlights for me. But after all there is no bad song at all on this record and other than a show with three d-beat bands in a row even non diehard crusties should be able to enjoy this in this small dose. Plus the cover artwork with the printed plastic sleeve and the poster/booklet inside are damn goodlooking and the politics behind this release are definitely worth support because, you know, deutschland has gotta die!
