Ultima Thule - Jämtlandssången

Dim Records - EP -


1101_ut_jamt.jpgNew single from Ultima Thule is called Jämtlandssången and it is out on Dim Records in 500 copies (100 yellow, 100 blue and 300 black) and it contains two songs. First one Jämtlandssången is dedicated to the Jämtland area (on video you may check its landscape https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-jxcyKzOtQ) which is historical province of Sweden in the middle of the country. Second one is called Nordens år – Odens vrål (Northern Year – Odin´s Roar). There is also official video on this song - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRwa-D3rIqI where you may find shots from studio. Jämtlandssången is originally written by Wilhelmem Petersonem-Bergerem which was Swedish composer and writer at the end of 19th and beginning of 20th century. Second song is slowest and Bruno can show his vocals quality. When I compare these songs, the first one is faster and more singalong with the beginning just with vocals and guitar, second one starts with typical Viking rock tune. I have to say that both songs were recorded more than half year ago. On the cover is Jämtland coat of arms, on the back side is detail of roaring Viking plus song titles. There is no info paper inside. Both songs are great in their own way. Great!

Celková Impotence - Nikdy se nevzdáme

DIY - CD - 47:34


1100_ci.pngDIY album of re-united band which is very controversial for some people (because for they pro-nation and anti-communists stands - punk´s not red since 1991) but to be honest – fuck off I´m judging people after some personal experience and not because some Mr. Know it All says some rumors about them which are not based on the truth. On 28th October the band played their 2nd gig in their existence after 25 years where I bought this CD. From the original line up is there just singer and guitarist Jarda, bass player and drummer are new (drummer is son of guitarist). The band never say that they know how to play (their name means Total Impotence and it is because in the beginning no one can play any instrument) but for the example the beginning of song Má vlast (My Country) is solo from classic music Vltava. Bass is very significant and sometimes it hides the guitar (which is not doubled in the songs) and drums are quite simple. When you compare new and old songs on youtube you should compare their musical skills then and now. CD contains 10 new songs, 3 from 1994 – 1995 (Štít a meč – Sword and Shield, Očista – Purge – boths songs are second best from the CD for me and Nový svět – New World), and one song from 1992 Jinak CD obsahuje 10 novejch songů, 3 z let 1994-1995 (Štít a meč, Očista – oba songy považuju za druhý nej věci, Nový svět) a jeden song z 1992 (Manybeast which is inspired by sci-fi novel and where is guitar without booster). All old songs are re-recorded again. New songs are Nikdy se nevzdáme (Never Surrender which is the best from the CD), Rudý bastardi (Red Bastards), Fuck Off Eu, Přítel (Friend), Umělý svět (Plastic World), Hate Punk, atd… Booklet is nice – one page dedicated to the band history, one page about the current line up, all lyrics, old photos, etc… I like their live show more than CD versions but I think it is more about lyrics and putting their thoughts into them then some high quality music – just check the part of the first song “Nice people, nice things, nice music and nice craps, this is what you won´t find here “. It is good that they released this CD but I think they should work more on their sound from the studio.
