VARIOUS ARTISTS: Histeria 2: LP

Martin Sorrondeguy serves up a second volume of punishingly good international hardcore that’s surprisingly varied in sound, courtesy of Tomorrow, I Quit, Amdi Petersen’s Arme, Conga Fury, Fuerza-X, Punch in the Face, Vitamin X, Scholastic Deth, Bruce Banner, Disidencia and Regress. Along with its predecessor and Suburban Voice’s No Sleep for Hardcore, this is easily one of the best international hardcore comps thus far in the new millennium. Included is a tabloid-sized publication with lyrics/info and full-size posters of each band. Sooo recommended it ain’t funny.
