Three Related Pieces

Ive always had a big thing for Scandinavian and Finish thrash and hardcore. I think M.R.R.'s "Welcome to 1984" exposed me to some amazing shit, Mainly Rattus, The Bristles, The Headcleaners( or HUVUDTVÄTT as they are also known). It was as always downhill from there. The First offering is something that Ive been on the lookout for a good long while is the AMAZING "Beating The Meat" comp. It was released on the Xcentric Noise label (who also put stuff out by the Cult Manix, The Headcleaners, and Born BC). It features 25 awesome tracks by Olho Seco, Rattus, Colera, The Neos, Upright Citizens, Most of which Ive never heard before.
