El Grito Records
SPOTLIGHT: Elgrito Records
This week we are taking a look at Elgritio... this long gone record label put out a lot of great releases, and a few of them are still available for very cheap. Once we sell out these items are gone forever.
ELGRITO RECORDS (all items going out of print):
KONTRAATTAQUE - Luchas, Tragedias... 7" $1.00
SENTIMIENTOS OPRIMIDOS/DIRITES - split 7" $1.00
THIS MACHINE KILLS - On The Move 7" $1.00
KONTRAATTAQUE - Luchas, Tragedias... 7"
Elgrito has finally repressed the Kontraattaque 7". This time around it has a new cover and a 20 page booklet. The music, if you dare to call it that, is an assault of screamed and grunted vocals over a torment of harsh fucking hardcore. Lyrics in Spanish and English with translations in the booklet. (Elgrito #3)
SENTIMIENTOS OPRIMIDOS/DIRTIES - split 7"
If you want to get a glimpse of what's going on in South America musically then here's your chance. This is the vinyl version of a tape released awhile back. Both bands hail from Argentina. Sentimientos Oprimidos zips by in the blink of an eye with their raw, fast and thrashy hardcore while the Dirties keep it upbeat and melodic. All songs mostly in Spanish with political content. This is the first pressing of 500 on orange vinyl. (El Grito #5)
THIS MACHINE KILLS - On The Move 7"
Four more songs from Southern California's This Machine Kills. Fast, melodic, and political, they tap into a 1990's sound (ala Merel and Iconoclast) to produce some hard driving songs that are a swirl of guitar, screams, and buried melodies. On The Move is being released in Europe on Coalition Records, and in the USA by El Grito Records. Watch for a full length on Ebullition from This Machine Kills later in the year as well as a live 10" on Deep Six. (El Grito #6)
