Area 51

Various Artists


A seriously exhaustive compilation of some of the best hardcore-to-metal from the USA, Germany, Belgium, and Sweden. All of it anti-government, a lot of it anti-American, which is fine, it’s a free country – for now… Included in the monstrous double-CD are songs from No Redeeming Social Value, Earth Crises, Fahrenheit 451, Integrity, 59 Time the Pain, Cause for Alarm, Fury of Five, by the Grace of God, 25 Ta Life, the Spudmonsters, Racial Abuse, J.J. Dogs, Disembodied, Snapcase, Vision of Disorder and, of course, Warzone. This collection could easily be the playlist of a great hardcore radio show. Victory Records, P.O. Box 146546, Chicago, IL 60614;
