Originally this was planned as a 10" of ASFIXIA about 5 years ago, but they sadly decided to call it quits and split up before it was ever got released. Out of a time when a lot of great bands from spain/basque/galicia had a huge impact on the european HC/Punk/Crust Scene. You know, Bands like EKKAIA, MADAME GERMEN, ICTUS? ASFIXIA from Bilbao/Basque country play some very intense & emotional HC/Punk/Crust (whatever!), they had their absolute unique sound with wonderful (sweet) melodies, crushing into a blend of anger & despair. Political, radical lyrics - very intense and very elaborated. Lyrics that deal with the cruelty of mankind, the major impact of technologies - presented by the sharp, screaming vocals of their female singer. In times it reminds me of bands such as ANOMIE or UNHINGED. For those of you, who know those bands, you know what they were standing for. ANNUNAKI REVENGE were also coming from the basque country - on this split they deliver six songs. Midtempo Crustpunk that managed to create an thoughtful atmosphere through the space it leaves for intense and direct guitar riffs and melodies, backed by the right amount of D-Beat drumming and lyrics presented mostly in basque language. This record is a benefit record for an anarchist printing collective called IRRINTZI, based in Vitoria-Gasteiz / Basque country. The recdord comes in a beautiful screenprinted, three colored cardboard cover and along with a thick 20 page booklet with lyrics, translations and long explanations to all songs. You can definitely see, feel and hear that this record is more than just a piece of music. It's about D.I.Y., ideals, friendship and passion!
