Witchcrist, Dephosphorus, Ravencult, Mutant Supremacy and Dodsferd are amongst the bands appearing on Monomaniac compilation, volumes 2 and 3 (released as one), albeit with something of a twist!


Blastbeat Mailmurder (BMM) keeps on in its endeavours to dig up some of the underground’s best specimens to transplant to wax (12”, if you ask) and for this installment, BMM’s head Panos Agoros requested that all the bands featured apply a level of restraint. “Eh?” you may well ask. Agoros insisted all tracks were limited to around the 1-minute mark, and he explains the logic behind the idea: “Even though short timings are standard practice for punk-related music genres, it is extremely interesting to hear how bands from other scenes respond to the challenge, as well as how it sounds to juxtapose short bursts from the extreme underground’s different tendencies…”


The restrictions imposed on track lengths lead the compilation to be more of an experiment than a simple compilation of bands and quite possibly all the more interesting for it.


Decide for yourself though, and check it out here.
