Dažd & Nakot - split (2008)


Year: 2008
Genre: Blackened Crust
Country: Serbia
Label: Doomed to Extinction

Track List:

  1. The Army of Darkness + Down Below (Live)
  1. Dead Lives / Weapons Industry + The End

There are 5 tracks on this split, but in the mp3 rip they're combined into 2 tracks. Personally I like the Nakot's side of the split, they're playing awesome crust punk (though not much influenced by black metal). Sadly I have only a very little knowledge of Balkan punk scene, but it's said that many good bands come from ex-Yugoslavia (especially in the recent years).

"We were sick and tired living in country like this which pass trough few wars, economical crises, nato bombing, international isolation in recent history...and just seeing local punk bands singing about their crew, their neighborhood, or some stupid joke songs...Our lyrics are mostly dark and apocalyptic… But the reason is not because that’s how they should be in crust/punk genre, but because the reality of civilization, we belong by birth to, is exactly like that. Also, the war as a subject in some of our songs is not a punk fetishism, but because the wars have been reality in this region for the last 15 years, and many of us have lived in the realities described in the lyrics of many crust bands" - Nakot


  1. The current scene from Serbia is really interesting, I think. I LOVE Dazd, they got an LP who will be out very soon on Fuck Yoga Records from Macedonia. Maybe it's out when I'm writing this... can't wait to ear it!
    I have upload this for a frind:
    It's a live recording from 2006. I'm not sure it's includes tiltles you haven't put here on other records. But this recording is truly amazing! And it's a rare stuff. Tell me what you think about the voice it's craziest than a japanese band.

    I like also like very much Nakot. They were one of the first political band in this area. The singer is actualy the artist who done lot's of crust records covers with the name of Doomsday Graphics.
    I've got some Nakot's tapes in distro, and it's possible to trade of course.
    Just write here if you want:
