Classic piece of Norwegian hardcore punk, originally released by X-port Plater in 1984. This is one of the best european HC records and although I don’t spin the only EP by Norway’s SVART FRAMTID twice a week anymore (like I used to do), it’s still got a lot of charme. Just read the lyrics to the song “Religios Terror” and almost felt a bit nostalgic: Seems like songs against religion these days would rather be directed against those Taliban, Hamas and El-Qaida creeps. Best song is “Disipline” – a minor classic, followed by “17 Milliarder” which has some intersting guitar bits towards the end. A couple of years ago, the prices for all X-Port Plater releases were exorbitantly high and I always wondered what the cause for the short-lived hype was. Even a bootleg LP that compiled them EPs went for a ridiculous amount of money. The cover is actually a pretty posh foldout thing, but I’m too lazy (hungover, to be frank) to get the entire thing scanned.
