Another tape on HFN/IMA, a tape label with many releases of Spanish bands from the 90's.
Opa Hostil were from Cordoba and this tape is their 1st release. They did a split CD with Grito De Odio in 2000.
Again a rendition of the HHH song 'Pedazo De Tierra, Pedazo De Mierda'. Looks like HHH were still popular years later.

Spanish crusty HC band with a strong political message. Don't know where they were exactly from but it seems from the Tarragona area. Already active from the early 90's as a grindcore band. Band split up in the early 2000's. They released a bunch of tapes as well as 2 7"s and 2 split CD's.
Here we have a demo from 1998. Originally released in Spain on Pirata Records but my copy is the Polish version on Stradoom Terror.
16 tracks of which 2 are covers; one of Strangis Guajes and one of classic HC band HHH.

Split tape of 2 bands from Chile: Disturbio Menor and Silencio Absoluto.
As far as I know, this the only thing Silencio Absoluto released. Disturbio Menor managed to get a 7" out on Minneapolis label Sin Fronteras in 1997. Those tracks also appear on a split tape with Enfermos Terminales.
The original issue was on Masapunk Records (in 1996) but I have the US version on Sin Fronteras (with cheap xerox cover).
8 tracks each of furious, political HC/punk.

The Sovjets were an early punk band from Belgium. They started in 1979 and released two 30 minutes demo tapes. Later they would change their name to Sovjet War and their sound got more wave. As Sovjet War they released the 'It Became A Problem' 7" in 1983.
This tape should have both demos on it but unfortunately only one side is recorded so you'll get only 8 songs. No titles are mentioned on the sleeve but I could manage to find some through their MySpace page.
1. All Systems Go
3. Body On The Lawn
The songs on their MySpace page actually have a better sound so let's hope that the ex-members still have the mastertapes of these recordings. A reissue would be very cool.
