I got Hardcore Holocaust about I-don't-know-how-many years ago as an xmas present from my Metal Mongrel товарищ Chris, and I still gotta say, damn good choice with this record! It's a good album to have considering these grind/really-'evvy-punk (I think they call it Crust) bands are just off the radar from what I usually listen to. At the time I was only familiar with Bolt Thrower, and only generally aware of Napalm Death, and that's still pretty much the case. I saw The Stupids in Kingston-Upon-Thames a few years ago (inbetween AC/DC and Death Angel gigs, helluva weekend!) then remembered they were on this album awhile later; they were good-humoured fun live and on record, 20 years apart.

I'd recommend this to anyone as unfamiliar with the bands as I am, there's a variety of extremities and no band sounds too similar to another. Extreme Noise Terror have a particularly aggressive sound and style, with ridiculous vocals and an evil sounding bass. Unseen Terror have a cool trebly fuzz guitar sound that I enjoy enough to write this sentence. My favourite bands here are Bolt Thrower and Electro Hippes, Sheep still the undoubted favourite song. Such a laff! I bought me a copy of their album The Only Good Punk Is A Dead One off the back of this, but the band sounded completely different and, now I think about it, that record's been hidden away for awhile. Should dig it out and check.

For now, download, enjoy.
