Quod Massacre – 80’s Slovenian punk killer

August 20:th 2012 – Slovenian punk killer

Quod Massacre – Kje Je Odgovor!

NE! Records – NE005 – 2012- LP

Quod Massacre is one these bands few have heard about. That’s not because they where no good but more because they where from a region which music few (like me) keep an eye and ear on. They started out in the early 80’s and made a demo. The band is from of Ljubljana (former Yugoslavia) a city which had a good cultural life (including punk). They put out an LP in 1991 that got some minor distribution around Europe.

I got this excellent release from NE! Records with recordings from 1983 to 1986. It contains some really great hardcore tunes and some slower punk songs as well. I must say that I’m very impressed after playing thru the LP a couple of times. Some song really stuck. Furthermore I have to say that I’m impressed with the overall release. It comes in a nice gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeves and a CD as well. 250 copies are in red vinyl and the remaining of a total press of 800 are in black vinyl. The guys at NE! Records have done a great job in this fifth release from this small label. I got some stuff that I will post later that came in the same parcel (I bought all 5 releases from NE! records).

As musicians the band does a great job and some songs a quite innovative and all quite melodic. I don’t understand the lyrics, but I have understood so much that the band focus on the situation in Slovenia at the time.

Anyhow here is 2 tunes that I selected: ♬ Quod Massacre and ♬ Kje Je Odgovar! (both 128 kbps). I’m unsure of how this label is distributing it’s records so you can mail nerecords@hotmail.com for more info. I did.

  1. Awesome band! I also bought this LP release with CD and I can easily say that this is one of mine most favorite records ever! So honest and filled with energy without compromise on every beat of it – I fucking love it!

Got something to say?
