|FLOWER 10- MY OWN LIES / HOUSES IN TEXAS split 7″
M.O.L: Fastcore like DROPDEAD with some raw parts like CROSSED OUT. Two members of STACK and two of NYCTOPHOBIC. That says alot! FastFastFastCore!!!!!!
|FLOWER 9- DISKONTO 3rd LP
One of the best sweden crust-hardcore bands ever, in the vein of MOB 47 or something else. The new songs go a bit more old school HC early´85.
|FLOWER 8- PHILLIPPÉ – the essence in numbers CD / LP
These were the last recordings before they splited up. It´s a bit more rock than on the 7″es, but still good! This is the official cd-version of the LP on Hombre-Lobo-Rec. There is a remix of a song which has been only in org. on the cd (not on the vinyl). Also there are two extra songs that should have been on tape-compilations and 3 extra songs from the recording-session for the 7″ and split 7″, that haven’t been released so far.
|FLOWER 7- PRONE 10″
Three members/ex-member of Stack. All three do vocals and it’s a mix of the best punk and metalriffs you ever heard. Sometimes influenced by Discordance Axis and sometimes by Seein Red or bands like that. But they also try to add their own new ideas and a lot of noisy parts. Can´t say more than I think it’s the most brutal band on earth!!!!!
|FLOWER 6- MAXIMUM SUBJECTIVITY 12″ comp.
Includes songs by FEAR IS THE PATH TO THE DARK SIDE / DEMON SYSTEM 13 / PHILLIPPÉ / HYBRIS / STAGNATIONS END / AMEN 81 / DIAVOLO ROSSO / DURANGO 95 / MAN VS HUMANITY / MURDER DISCO X / PEACE OF MIND / UNIVERSAL. A really varied compilation, that comes with handmade cover and a 14 pagebooklet.
|FLOWER 5- AMYGDAL 7″
NewSchoolEmoH.C. with screamed and spoken vocals. With an really good artwork and information about food not bombs in Saarbrücken, but everything only in german, sorry.
|FLOWER 4- DIAVOLO ROSSO / Y split 7″
That Diavolo Rosso songs are much faster than the songs from the 7″ and the demo. Now with only one guitar and with the drummer of Stack. Sometimes it sounds like the crustparts of Dropdead with the voice of Deformed Conscience. Y- is so fucking great on that 7″. The sound is the best they ever had (same studio like Mörser/Systral/Carol/…..), and the drums like a machine with so many crazy break and ideas. Sometimes it reminds of Spazz, but with more brutal sound.
|FLOWER 3- UNIVERSAL / PHILLIPPÉ split 7″
That´s the best Phillippé songs ever – at least in my mind. The bass-sound is so brutal in a ratio of the DC-sound of the rest, but it´s really cool. The Universal stuff is from the same session as the 7″ – please look up the review for deteails.
|FLOWER 2- CHOREA / ASMODINAS LEICHENHAUS split 7″
This record is the product of a friendship by two bands, who like the same kind of music – crust, grind with screamed vocals. I think you know both bands from their 7″es, but this split is much better in sound and the songs have way more rawness than the older stuff. It comes with a handmade cover and 2 booklets and sticker.
|FLOWER 1- PHILLIPPÉ – Misameé 7″
This band from Germany really makes the sound of DC´86, influenced by bands like Rites of Spring,……… Comes with an arty cover and and nice booklet.
