Maniac Within - Add Power To Spirit (CCP Records, 1995)

Okay, I didn't fall asleep, so here's another one of my 'lucky hits' in the darker corners of the web. So I googled this band, Maniac Within comes from Austria, a country musically known only for Pungent Stench, Disharmonic Orchestra or Disastrous Murmur (am I rite?), but there was another band more into thrash/death metal, the one I'm talking about here.

So they got some super obscure releases in the mid-nineties and nobody apart from Roco did have it on Discogs. But hey, that doesn't mean you can't find it on the internet, right? I found the actual page of their label, CCP Records, and it turned out they got three copies of Add Power To Spirit left, which of course I grabbed immediately. But imagine the luck I had, I mean, the page looked as if nobody did ever change anything since like 1999 or something, and so I wasn't really optimistic to even get an answer when I wrote a mail, but hey, I got the CDs, and I'm pretty sure you haven't seen one yet. :)

Intoxicate - Silent Killing (indie, 1994)

About damn fucking time that I post something new in here. But hey, summer was here and I was busy blastin' Journey and Fleetwood Mac at the lake. Haha! Uhm yeah, Intoxicate is a pretty unknown band from Switzerland. This is their first release of five in total, and surely the one to hunt as it's the only one with decent tunes on.

As most of these unknown Swiss thrash CDs, also Intoxicate's Silent Killing is hard to come by, even in the country of cheese and 24/7 snow. I was lucky to track it down, offered on a small auction site here in Switzerland, sitting lonely between common and normal CDs like Dismember or Pestilence (not talking 'bout the sound on these, only the rarity). If you're looking around the net, you still can find some of these 'lucky hits'. If I don't fall asleep, I'll post another of these lucky finds right after.
