So, yea, I'm sorta running out of shit to upload, or at least I can't think of anything off the top of my head at the moment, which means it's time to ask for requests. If I don't have something already, I'll try and track it down, but if you want to see something new here in the near future, best bet is to ask for it. Comment this entry with anything you want. If you just want to see different shit, you can also request genres. I listen to pretty much everything, so chances are I'd have something new.

A lo, Zero said there shalt be crust...

And there was. And there was much rejoicing.

Four bands represented here: Blünt, Nagasaki Nightmare, Ictus, and This Thing Called Dying. Mostly I upped these releases for Blünt and Ictus though.

First off is Blünt, who are fucking awesome. If you like the whole Tragedy/From Ashes Rise/EVERY-FUCKING-ONE style of crust that's oh-so-popular nowadays, you owe it to yourself to check out their releases. They fucking ramp the melody up to fucking eleven, and make some of the catchiest god damn crust I've ever heard. If you don't have the main riff from El Fin Dio Sufrimientio stuck in your head after a single listen, you must be deaf. Their split with Nagasaki Nightmare has vastly better production of the two albums, so I recommended that one over their self titled.

Speaking of Nagasaki Nightmare, I upped their side of the split too. They too play melodic new crust shit, but in all honesty, I've listened to their side once, and went straight back to Blünt's side. If you like them though, I can upload their superior album, Grind Tradizionale Barese.

Next is This Thing Called Dying, who play completely fucked ballistic crust/hardcore/grind. There's still that melody that seems to be a requirement for crust nowadays, but it's hidden under waves of furious guitar and drums, and manic vocals. It's pretty good times, and better than I remember.

Last but not least is Ictus, who round out the split with This Thing Called Dying, and also have their own album, Imperivm. Let me preface this by saying, if you like Fall of Efrafa, do not hesitate to download this band. Only two tracks from them, but with a sixteen minute track form the split, and the whopping thirty nine minute single track that makes up Imperivm, you don't need much else. This is epic crust of the highest caliber. They pull off massive songs without a single god damn dull spot, which some bands can't even pull off at fucking two minutes, let alone almost a fucking hour. It's a daunting listen, but it's well worth the reward.
