EPS / Split E.P. stuff

Hellkrusher - various split tracks


SaturninE (Ita) -Demo 
Occultist (USA) - demo
Sküll(Nor) -demo
Mabuse (Nor) -Stench of Death demo
Necrot (USA) -demo (Blood Divine)
Lawless (USA) -Nite of The Wolf demo (Blood Divine)

Quite a few Southern Lord releases in that list but that label has been releasing so much great crust-d beat-HCPunk stuff in recent times...the current roster is the best the label has ever had in my opinion.

I am bound to have forgot some great albums but can't mention them or remember them all at this moment in time!
