MURDER DISCO X - COMPLETE DISCOGRAPHY 1997-2004 (EXIST103)
Phew! Where on earth do I start with this crucial comp? 36 songs, from their releases: SUPERCRUST 7", FEEDING OF THE 500 7", Split LP with JILTED, 1998 Demo and Comp releases MORE WORLD - LESS BANK, WELCOME TO HELL, MISSING IN ACTION, MAXIMUM SUBJECTIVITY and some unreleased tracks, along with covers of DISCHARGE, VARUKERS, SOCIETY DOG, VERBAL ABUSE and VOID. Now, despite all those tracks from different releases, numerous line-ups, the wonderful thing about MURDER DISCO X is that all the songs here sound consistent, pent up fury and anger from start to finish. Great recording quality from start to finish, which is a big plus to my ears. Exciting fast and furious 80's styled hardcore, with great d-beat sensibilities and rip roaring songs. No cannon fodder here, all highly charged incendiary, adrenalin pumping core to the max. Memorable songs that make me wanting to play it again, again and again. All the lyrics are printed in their full glory and boy Ralf is an angry man, he's got a lot of interesting things to say, doesn't hold back and I agree with his ideals. Various pics and the M.D.X. story (so far) are included. A great CD that will appeal to the hardcore purists and cruties and anyone else with good sense and taste.
