7DR017 / BB014 : KRATZER / KVAZAR – Split LP

cost: 10,- € + SHIPPING

The Bands

Hailing from Thessaloniki in Northern Greece, Kvazar have been from 1999 until their breakup in 2010, one of the pillars of the small, albeit fanatical, local grind scene of the 00′s.Their side of this split is the band’s swan song. A furious slab of relentless beating, infused with a Scandinavian death’n’roll touch and enhanced by paroxysmical session vokills from the band’s longtime friend Panos Agoros (Dephosphorus, ex-Straighthate).

Kratzer from Hamburg, are the fresh blood of this project. Playing together since 2011, they have managed to put together an intense and sharp sonic assault that is too good to ignore! Their music is a darkened, visceral take on hardcore punk. Punk beats, memorable and devastating riffs, majestic dynamics, gorgeous post metal atmospheres and a gritty, expressive vocal delivery in their native tongue… Those are the building blocks of a no-nonsensical concoction that brings in mind the passion of such seminal acts as Catharsis, Ire, Cursed or Zegota.

The Release

The Kvazar/Kratzer split-album is brought to you by 7 Degrees Records (Germany) and Blastbeat Mailmurder (Greece), two underground labels working closely together over the last few years. This partnership has started to develop when Dephosphorus, the band of BBM head honcho’s, has found an appopriate home at 7DR.

Extraordinaire visionnaries Viral Graphics (S.F./USA, Athens/Greece) are responsible for the record’s superb artwork and layout.

This fine release is also available in digital format for an affordable price, from the bands’ and BBM’s Bandcamp sites (kratzer.bandcamp.com, kvazar.bandcamp.com, blastbeatmailmurder.bandcamp.com, 7degreesrecords.bandcamp.com.com)
