Religious War-"S/T" ep

Another 3 track 7" of PDX punk (although only 2 songs are listed on the back cover). This is Religious War's 1st 7" and although I prefer the 2nd 7" "Asylum" (raw perfection!) this is still worth checking out. This is on Spent Round Records and has some nice artwork on the inside sleeve of studded jackets, automatic rifles, and dildos (punk!). Members are now in ROTTEN CADAVER and I'm sure were in a bunch of other PDX bands... will someone please build a PDX punk band family tree? Anyways, check it out and check out their 2nd 7" which can be found here: http://distortminds. blogspot. com/2007/07/pdx-punk. html

Bomb Heaven-"S/T" ep

3 Track 7" of PDX hardcore punk... not much to say except that if you are a fan of BLOOD SPIT NIGHTS, DOG SOLDIER, MASSKONTROLL (this reminded me of them for some reason...), and those millions of other PDX punk bands then you'll probably enjoy this. I guess this was originally on Doomsday records and then repressed on Black Water? I didn't think they were around anymore but apparently there is an LP coming out soonish on Black Water so who knows?
