Driller Killer ‎– Brutalize

Might as well make it a Swedish D-beat weekend. Driller Killer released this debut in 1994 and right out the gate it sounds like a Discharge tribute almost. But as we get deeper they do establish their own thing. A very entertaining release that I probably would've never looked for had it not been for the theme suggestion. So, thank you.

Totalitär - Multinationella Mördare 7"

Staying in Sweden, and with d-beat, we have this debut ripper from 1987. I really don't know too much about the band, but they've released a fair number of records in their 20+ years.

Crude S.S. - 1000 Dead Cops

D-Beat originated with, of course, Discharge. Swedish bands such as the great Crude S.S. began dropping the hammer in the early 80's. While the band might not be technically considered "crust", if nothing else they damn sure helped pave the way. This 1982 demo shows 'em how it's done.

Extinction Of Mankind ‎– Weakness 7"

Here is the 1994 debut 7" from UK crust punks Extinction Of Mankind. Great stuff, but too short.

Nausea - Extinction

I'm guessing I'm not the only one here used to Nausea on a Sunday morning. This Nausea hails not from last night, but from the lower east side of NYC. And my friend Wiki tells me they helped pave the way for the American Crust scene. This is yet another band that I never listened to and now feel cheated. A really great release.

Misery - Born, Fed... Slaughtered 7"

Here's a little crust from the US. Minneapolis, MN to be exact. This is their all too short debut 7" from 1989.

Doom - Total Doom

Crust bands certainly have pleasant band names, don't they? At least the bands this weekend do. Another thing they have in common is the fact that I never listened to them way back when. Not for any particular reason. Just didn't. And as a result I clearly missed out on some very intense, and very good, music. This 1989 comp release collects a lot of Doom's earlier releases.
