This is a pretty descent 7EP of Black Metal from a country which delivers few acts, so that's a good point here. The EP comes in a thick cardboard cover. Musically The Stone plays raw Black Metal.

"Diabolou..." contains the very first tracks from this Greek band, in the same vein than varathron/Rotting Chirst. There's no inrfo sheet, but lyrics are printed in the inlay card.

An excellent idea to gather 4 new band and kick their asses to play old school Thrash Metal stuff. The vinyl includes these bands : Skull, Hangover, Pyoveli, Pagan Fire. When it comes to the lay out, it's a fucking 80's one, with a qualtiy thick cardboard including pictures, contacts and recording information.

This is one of the shittiest release I've been throught. There's no info on bands, lyrics, nor date release. Oprichniki plays a broging kind of hard core while Toxic Holocaust attempts to deliver a poor second range of Thrash (get their full lenght instead)

The Mysticum's song was scheduled on the "Medusa's Tears" demo, but never appeared on the tape. The ulver's song previously appeared on the "Vargnatt" promo.

The first 100 copies come with a A3 black and white poster, a badge and a band logo patch. THE 400 other copies come with the regular vinyl. When it comes to the lay out, Invictus Prod did a great job through the inlay card and the nice patch. The vinyl includes a cover of Sodom "Ausgebomb" which is pretty well played.

Both band offer 80's like Thrash Metal tunes, "Nuclear Babylon" song is a live recording. This release represents the undreground feeling through the small but well packaged production.

This is offers tunes recorded in 1988 and was the first demo tape of the band. Side B has songs from 1985. Musically you can espect old Slayer/Possessed like Metal. A pretty great lay out

Re-release of the same titled demo tape on vinyl format. The band will later be Order From Chaos. Listen to a lesson of violence.

Even though there's no info shit, the label printed a thick cardboard cover with a simple but efficent lay out. The music is in Judas Iscariot's vein.

This 7EP were the very last tunes from Warhammer cause the band split. These tunes are in the striaght ultra Heavy Metal vein, fucking loud and poundering.

This split is a very great job from this rather unknown label from Australia and everything is clean and well set up. The cardboard of the cover is pretty heavy.

The split EP offers a remioxed version of "Total Warfare" which sound like shit as it has an industrial side, Mayhem offers an unreleased studio version of "Necrolust"
