In the tradition of the legendary "Cry Now, Cry Later" compilations of the 90's, PIG DESTROYER / AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED's Scott Hull has brought together some of the very best of today's underground grindcore, hardcore, and power violence bands for volume one of "This Comp Kills Fascists."
"This Comp Kills Fascists" features new and exclusive material from such bands as recently disbanded INSECT WARFARE, MAGRUDERGRIND, KILL THE CLIENT, WEEKEND NACHOS, A.S.R.A, and more. "This Comp Kills Fascists" also includes the first new material in almost ten years from legendary grinders BRUTAL TRUTH and AGENTS OF SATAN.
Hull says of the compilation: "There are a lot of killer young bands out there with the same kind of vibe that was around back when Chris Dodge was doing Slap-a-Ham and Fiesta Grande was the all-important mecca to which every underground hardcore listener would make a pilgrimage every year. It was a lot different back then. There was no MySpace. No Ebay. You actually had tapes and 7-inches that you found out about in photo copied fanzines. You had to hunt this shit down. It was about discovery. You'd seek out some obscure split or tape, and when you got them, a million small flyers for other releases fell out of the package. If you were a band, you didn't have photoshop. Kinko's was vital to your band's existence and you learned how to tear out logos, steal artwork, cut, paste, cut, paste..." "I don't pretend to be any kind of grand poobah for power violence, but it absolutely had its own sound, attitude, values...it was it's own scene. And it seems there are both a lot of bands from the day that are coming back (Despise You, Apartment 213, Crom), that never left (Lack of Interest, Hellnation), and a LOT of younger bands that are re-invigorating that scene altogether. This comp is generally about a theme, but somewhat spread across PV, grind, and other hardcore elements. It's supposed to be a tribute to the way the underground hardcore scene should always be. Fast, loose, ferociously independent, unpretentious, and fun."
"This Comp Kills Fascists" will see its North American release on July 8th, July 14th internationally.
