A CRUCIAL compilation

I haven't listened to or seen this compilation since I was way young! Thank you Nathan for the rip! This comp featured mass good stuff, a lot of it being rare as well. So, naturally, it must appear on this blog. God, I see comps like this one, and it makes my hunt for stuff I haven't heard in so long get a little out of hand. Oh, the Christian hardcore scene...
Anyway, this comp featured, Shockwave, xDisciplex, Within (still looking for their Out of the Shadows of Desperation record), a much more raw and heavier version of Through and Through's "Through Infinite Darkness" off of their split with Subterfuge, and Fed by Ravens [MN].

Blessed Be This Killing compilation (1998 - Deadself Recordings)

Part Two


  1. Awesome. This blog is crucial. I'm thankful peeps still appreciate this stuff.

  2. Wow! I have the original copy of this comp. I was sad when I found it again a few months ago it was cracked =( I was able to get a few songs off it, but not all. But now I can have them again. You are making my youth happy again, I like you was way into the hardcore scene when I was growing up in the 90's-00's, I am re-looking for bands I once loved. This blog is gold to me.

  3. I emailed a lot with Jarrod Norris who ran Deadself in 1998 and 1999 and I remember him telling me how difficult it was to come up with money to put this out. He was really stressed out about the money. This was a labor of love for him. There are a few tracks that were recorded exclusively for this comp. xDisciplex being the one that I remember.

  4. Oloko, o link ainda está funcionando! Muita sorte kkkk, THANX!
