I must admit that my knowledge about chilean music is very limited. If I have to come up with some names, Pentagram is the only band that pops up in my mind right now. Recently I've been offered a trade by my friend Ignacio from Chile. He asked if I wanted to trade a repress of an italian 80s' classic for a copy of the freshly released Anarkia "censurado" demo from 1989, now pressed for the very first time on wax by Rock SVB Discos from NY. Being a sucker for anything outta sur america, I immediately accepted his offer even without listenening to this online before closing the deal. A few weeks later this ep finally landed in my mailbox. Being a south american hardcore demo from the late 80s, I was expecting something pretty raw and primitive. To my suprise, this turned out to be very well recorded and with very well written & catchy tunes. They were well connected with the local thrash scene back then and you can definitely hear that in the music. That probably explains also why they could play their instruments so well and made such a good recording, ahahah. This is a very classic south american release that I've somehow missed until now. Highly recommended to anyone. This is true politicized punk to me: recorded during one of the most brutal & violent dictatorship ever by real people. Not a by a bunch of privileged & annoyed white kids who pretended to be some kind of revolutionaries. Pressed on a nice 3 panels sleeve with flyers, lyrics, pics and much more. I got the limited blue wax. The stamped dust sleeve is a nice extra touch that gives it some extra points. Feel free to school me on anything (metal & punk) from south america that you think I might enjoy!
