Various Artists - Empty Skulls Vol. Two 12 inch
Corrosion of Conformity, Crude SS, Justice League, & Pillsbury Hardcore make up some of the better know bands, while E.A.T.E.R., Legion of Parasites, & Colera make up some of the lesser known groups.
Stand out/favorite tracks include Pillsbury Hardcore (with 3), Justice League, Corrosion of Conformity (3), Stranglehold (who have a snotty, punkier Dead Milkmen feel), & Legion of Parasites (2). Nearly every one of the 21 songs is great, though there is one or two that stray far from the general fast & loud of these songs and another song or two that unfortunately suffer from inadequate recording quality. All in all, a very solid and diverse comp from the mid-80's punk/hardcore scenes of the world. Very worth the $1.99 I paid for it (especially considering the few copies I've seen since go much closer to the $30 range, not that I'm looking to sell it).
