Die Kreuzen - Die Kreuzen
Thurston Moore once said that, in 1984, Die Kreuzen were the greatest hardcore band on the planet. To me, this record sounds more black metal than anything current- and it was released 30 years ago. Listen to ‘All White’ and you'll see what I mean. I've been listening to this record since it came out and I still think about them everyday.

I was always a metalhead but by 1985 I was way more into punk and hardcore. I lost interest in the genre for a long time, although there were a couple of death metal bands I kind of liked. Around 2004 I started looking back into it, started playing in metal bands again. I was blown away by how the genre had changed in my absence. I still listen to metal primarily but I'm starting to regain interest in other types of music again. I'm mostly into metal and electronic music these days.
