Pisschrist-Distort Melbourne (tape,2004)

Pisschrist hail from Melbourne, Australia and "Distort Melbourne"demo was recorded in 2004. This is how they took their name: "We were all staying in this punk warehouse in Northcote and Pisschrist was something like a house band. One of our house mates suggested it. It was a rude and brutal name plus when the actual photo of pisschrist came to Melbourne there was a big controversy that led to the smashing of the pic by Christian groups"
For more details about the band, their discography (two lp's, two ep's and two split ep's) and their tour in South East Asia, check their interview in Protest zine. "
Distort Melbourne" came out in tape but there was a cd version for their South East Asian tour, these nine pissed tracks deliver harsh vocals, angry riffs blending Japanese and Swedish hardcore with a crusty feeling,, the sound is decent, about 17 minutes the running time. If i m not mistaken, their singer is from Japan.
Pisschrist have played in Obscene Extreme fest, check some videos here: Obscene Extreme in 2006, & 2008,

05:Black wind of evil
