A new split album of 3 Siberian and Kazakh hardcore/neocrust bands is out! Yes, there's neocrust in Kazakhstan... but currently there's only one band called Diary. Well, boring bandname, average music, bad vocal work - but at least it's good that people from that area are trying.

Lago's tracks are easily the best on this split - it's anarchist DIY neocrust in the vein of Spanish school, very simular to Ekkaia, Madame Germen and Etacarinae. They're probably one of the best modern hardcore/crust bands from Siberia I've ever heard of... (well, there are such bands as I.Witness and Season's First Rain, for example, but I just can't get into music of I.Witness, and I don't like Season's First Rain)
Бесконечная Зима (Neverending Winter) is a band from Tomsk playing some kind of blackened punk, consisting of some ex-members of Louder Than Words. Their music reminds me of early Заводь's recordings, and that's the reason why I'm posting this split here.
P.S. And finally: yes, there are RABM fans in Kazakhstan! At least Kvrsk, a new black/doom band from Astana, is fairly in RABM spirit. They have no official releases yet, but they plan to  release a split w/ (A)xidanc(E) and some other bands. By the way, Kazakh punk scene always seemed to be very simular to Siberian one...
