Ricks Pick: Tribute To Totenkopf

This Ricks Pick goes to the Tribute To Totenkopf cd. This is the early 80`s French band Totenkopf and is actually the first time I had heard of this band. The songs on this cd are cover versions of songs they released which only came out as demos. I have been listening to this cd several times over now as it is has a great classic RAC sound (which is to be expected seeing as these songs were composed in the early 80`s) and I think anyone into a good old RAC sound will enjoy this cd. There is a link to an mp3 I have posted for the song Une Voix here. Check it out and if you like the cd grab yourself a copy. It is available now in the Label 56 catalog.

Ricks Pick: P.D.S.S. Totenkopf- Ljasnyja Braty

This Ricks Pick is going to the band P.D.S.S. Totenkopf for the cd Ljasnyja Braty. This is a black/ Pagan metal band from Belarus and this cd was their first full length. It was released in 2006 by Othal Productions. Black metal is a genre that I have never really gotten into, but more and more I have been finding myself listening to bands with a sound similar to P.D.S.S. and there are several that I do like. This particular cd combines some metal and black metal together as well as some folkish music and piano/ keyboards on some songs. I also like the vocals which are a bit more scratchy and don`t quite hit the high pitch screams found in a lot of bm bands. There are 16 songs on this cd as well as a great cover of the Absurd song Stahl Blitz Kalt. I have posted an mp3 here for the song New Time and the cd is also now available here at Label 56
