And now for something completely different... Here are a couple of records from early 2000s Dutch hardcore band Kriegstanz.  Made up of members of Seein' Red and Betercore, Kriegstanz played a heavier, more muscular, but still blazing fast, version of the Dutch thrash associated with those groups.  There is a definite His Hero is Gone or Tragedy vibe to the music, but the amped up speed endears them to me a bit more than most of the Tragedy-worship bands of the time.  I was fortunate enough to see them on their U.S. tour with Seein' Red in 2005 and pick up these records...  Included in this file are their self-titled 10" and their also self-titled 7" Ep.

Kriegstanz - 10" and 7"   


  1. The song 'Verstikt' of the 7" is so good!
    They also have a split with I SHot Cyrus and some live tracks on a compilation CDr recorded during the 'Kerstival' in Alkmaar Holland in 2003. Let me know if you're interested!
