Now, I’m not 100% sure if this is sold out but I know Rimbaud Records is sold out of it and so is Cesspool (which is now know as Suburban Mayhem Records, kinda) but it’s well worth tracking down if it is still out there.. On to the band descriptions..
Tunguska are an Irish/Polish fast hardcore band that verges onto the territory of crust punk. It’s loud, it’s raw and heavy as hell. I’ve already covered De Novissimis here so no need to go about them all over again, you just need to know that they’re great!
Also, if anyone out there has a copy of the Serpent/De Novissimis split Biz Card CDR could they rip it in decent quality and send it to me? Would love to get to hear it.
Tunguska/De Novissimis – Split 7″ [2007, Cesspool/Rimbaud Records]
This is the Demo CDR of the best doom/sludge/metal band in Dublin at the moment, De Novissimis. This recording was released as a demo bout 3 years ago now and they’ve since released a split 7″ with Tunguska (will be posted as well later) and a split Biz Card CDR with Serpents.
The band has had a few line up changes since this release (no longer dual vocals) and I’m not that sure who’s in them now. They haven’t been gigging much at all recently (tis been over a year since I saw them support Grey Daturas) and the only thing listed as forthcoming on their site is a split vinyl with Wreck Of The Hesperus on Stitchy Press Records which seems to be “Coming Soon” for several months now! So download this if your interested in the heavier, louder, angrier and noiser side of metal.
