5ive: Self Titled LP


5ive: Self Titled LP
Released: 2001 (Tortuga Recordings)

I first saw 5ive in New Jersey about eight years ago. Manowar was headlining a metal festival and the night before the festivities began they played a small bar with Rune and a few other bands. They blew me away. Consisting of only a guitarist and a drummer their sound filled the whole place and watching them was mesmerizing. This album, I believe their first, is still my favorite of theirs and is recommended for anybody who likes heavy instrumental music.

Here is the track Burning Season:

Christine 23 Onna: Acid Eater


Christine 23 Onna: Acid Eater
Released: 2002 (Midi Creative)

I don’t know much about Christine 23 Onna other than its Maso Yamazaki, better known as Masonna. Regardless, this is a great album. At times it’s psychedelic, at times it’s drone, but overall it’s a great piece of experimental Japanese music. Later Yamakazi released a few others albums under the name Acid Eater; those albums sound like an interesting mixture of The Stooges and Guitar Wolf.

Here is the song Fantastico from the album Acid Eater
