VARIOUS ARTISTS: Old Days Nostalgia: 3XCD

Three, count ‘em, THREE discs of some of the craziest, most extreme hardcore to come out in the last decade or so. You get oodles and oodles of tracks taken from the SOA records back catalog, courtesy of Assuck, Society of Jesus, Man is the Bastard, 7 Minutes of Nausea, Cripple Bastards, Agathocles and a bevy of others. If loud, fast-as-fuck and wholly devoid of any “pop” hooks is your bag of worms, or if you just want to indulge in more auditory sensory overload than you ever dreamed possible, you could do far worse than this.
