sad but true we lost someone again: today Behjan Mirhadi was found dead in his apartment! R.I.P.

the pics below were taken in 1994 when he and me hitchhiked to the notorious Chaosdays in Hannover.

as I've already posted their demo you should know that :OPERATION:MINDFUCK: is the one-man DRUMCOMPUTERGRIND project/band Michl did besides FIRSTWORLDSUICIDE and later ERADICATE. here we have the self-made 3" CD-R with 26 tracks that incl. covers of WARSORE, HAIL OF RAGE & others. if one considers the fact that all tracks have been recorded in Michl's room the quality is more than OK but as usual the thing with DRUMCOMPUTERGRIND is that you either love it or hate it. click the cover to d/l!

their SCREAM FOR ANOTHER WAY 10" was the vinyl debut of USE TO ABUSE and sounds way different (I admit I'm tempted to write better instead of different) than anything they did later. I'm not 100% sure but I think the tracks have been recorded while they still had the original 3-piece line up but they changed members before it was released. either way the music here is no shitty PUNK'N'ROLL (even though Harry already had that style 10 years before it became cool) but melodic PUNK/HARDCORE that you most likely will never forget after you heard it cause of the unique voice of vocalist Harry. it was released on COLD SWEAT RECORDS which Mike started just to release this 10". I think he did a print-run of 500 copies which all came on purple vinyl.

before ERADICATE there was AMERICAN FAMILY MURDERERS and before that there was this band called PUNISHMENT that had the same drummer but just played 2 shows before they called it a day and while the drummer moved on to play HARDCORE/GRINDCORE in A.F.M. that more or less became ERADICATE the singer moved on to play BLACK METAL in a band called INHUMAN. this is their 1st 5 track demo called INCANTATIONS from 1993/1994 (actually it's 5 tracks and an intro) and to tell you the truth I'm not sure if they released anything else before they changed the name to SOUL DEMISE or SOUL'S DEMISE and became pretty well known (especially in France I've been told but don't quote me on that!). truth be told INHUMAN's demo never did much for me way back then and it neither does today even though I listen to way more BLACK METAL nowadays than I did back in 1993. anyway, perhaps it does more for you than it does for me? click on the cover and find out yourself.

as you can see on the flier below GROWING MOVEMENT released a new CD yesterday 17 years after their 1st full length CIRCLE OF get 7 "new" tracks recorded more than 10 years ago in 1997 or 1998 for a demo that never made it further than to the homes of some friends. maybe it even was recorded in 1999? I don't remember exactly and as I "borrowed" the tape on which they were originally released to GROWING MOVEMENT's singer Loll about 10 years ago I can't look it up either. those 7 tracks are more metallic than their older stuff but that doesn't mean they are bad. besides that you get 4 live cuts from 1995 recorded at a show with WARZONE (that was great b.t.w.) including an unreleased cover of NOT WHAT I WANT from THE PRESS and some more stuff that's not listed on the back-cover. the CD was released by VINYL JUNKIES which is a funny name for a label that does CD only releases though! if you click on the cover you'll be able to D/L 1 track from the 7 "new" tracks and 1 of the live tracks.
