CATEGORY: ANARCHO-PUNK | DURATION: 15 MINUTES
A 9-track, 15-minute compilation of essential Swedish hardcore anarcho-punk music by one of the scene’s most punishing bands, Anti-Cimex. Warmachine comprises two 7-inch EPs – Raped Ass (1983, side A here) and Victims Of A Bomb Raid (1984, side B here). This is European hardcore as noise surge, approaching a point where hardcore punk and primitive metal are separated only by political and aesthetic perspectives; in fact, the Swedish hardcore scene eventually developed into one of the world’s most innovative and fertile breeding-grounds for the underground death metal cult of the late 80s.
