04.08.09 Great Bands From Weird Countries01.26.09 When Punk And Metal Mix Well

When Punk And Metal Mix Well

I've been listening to lot of crust punk/grindcore/crossover thrash. These are a couple of bands and their albums i've been digging. Kickass riffs, weird post-punk experiments, blast-beats galore, it's all here. Extreme Metal + Hardcore Punk goodness :)
1 Amebix

The essential punk/metal album. I prefer this one over their earlier Killing Joke influenced stuff. Scary stuff.
2 Extinction Of Mankind
The Nightmare Seconds

This album is just pure kickass. Not one weak track here, riffs are to die for. Crust Punk from UK, released 2004.
I would suggest these guys or Amebix, if you want to get into more extreme punk.
3Extreme Noise Terror
A Holocaust In Your Head

Track 1 - Out of time blast-beats, Heavily distorted powerchords, Low as fuck grunts.
Track 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,......
Recommended for Grindcore fans!
4Electro Hippies
The Only Good Punk Is A Dead One

One of John Peel's favourite bands, and Jeff Walker's pre-Carcass band to boot. You wouldn't go wrong with these guys, just get the fucking album.
Hear Nothing, See Nothing, Say Nothing

The band and album that spawned numerous d-beat bands across the planet. Rightly so, the grinding guitars, the d-beat, and fears of a nuclear holocaust being brought out. It's all good, so go get that spiked Discharge jacket that's been lying for years in your closet, and flex your middle finger to the system once again.
6Body Count
Body Count

The most non-PC album i have ever heard. And if you don't like it, let me put it as Ice-T did very eloquently,
"You can suck my muthaf**kin' d***"
Highlights: KKK Bitch, There Goes The Neighbourhood, Cop Killer.
7 G.I.S.M.

The most bizarre hardcore punk record of the 80s. With an unstable vocalist like Sakevi who has no qualms chasing the audience around with a flamethrower, and a guitarist who really belongs to a speed metal band, this is RECOMMENDED. Atleast, give this one a listen.
8 G-Anx

The entire disco of these Swedish crust punks. Recommendo.
9Bad Brains
Bad Brains

You all know why.....,.
10 Deviated Instinct
Nailed EP

Crust Punk pioneers, what do you get when you mix death metal with hardcore punk? Rock N' Roll Conformity is a decent release too. But i would suggest this one.
Too lazy to write anything more, but if i missed a good band or record or if you want to recommend something. I'm all ears.....
