Streetkunt - Shit Kunts, Shit Times

New Zealand seems to turning out a ton of great stuff in the last 5 or so years. This next recommendation is one of those gems from that area that never got passed the demo stage.

Band: Streetkunt
Album: Shit Kunts, Shit Times
Genre: Black metal/punk
Year: 2006
Origin: New Zealand
Label: Self-released

This band features a member of both Diocletian and Vassafor, though stylistically they couldn't be farther from each other. This stuff is filthy d-beat black metal. If you''re familiar with stuff like Malveillance or Vordr, then you have some idea what I'm talking about. The production on this is great for what it is, and the songs are catchy as hell. It includes a cover of Anti-Cimex's War Machine, and any Anti-Cimex cover is certainly a welcome one. This is definitely one of the gems from that area that got overshadowed by the members other bands.

Unfortunately this has been out of print for years, and isn't readily available online, which is why I decided to post it up here.

Best track(s): Only Nothing, War Machine

Recommended for fans of: Malveillance, Vordr, Bone Awl, Anti-Cimex
