Dollar Box Discoveries
1)The Godz-Mongolians: Ohio's own! This 1987 album is a reissue on FNA Records (2012) and actually has "promo" written on the disc!
2)Dead and Buried-Bear Witness: Hardcore that is as influenced by the Cro-Mags as Slayer!
3)Five Foot Thick-Blood Puddle: Nu Metal w/ some heavy metal adding in. Feature's single "Ducked Out" with guest Myles Kennedy.
4)Ignorance Never Settles-Cycles Of Consumption: Hardcore metal act from Canada. This was their only full-length.
5)Republica-Repulica: Female-fronted alternative rock.
6)Plan of Attack-The Working Dead: Chicago Hardcore.
8)Pump Up The Volume Soundtrack: Now, don't be a hater! This has Concrete Blonde, The Pixies, Bad Brains (with Henry Rollins), Soundgarden and Sonic Youth! Not that bad all around.
9)Breaking Point-Coming Of Age: The first album by this alternative rock band. Mostly got it because it features the single "One Of A Kind" which I've always secretly liked.
10)Sons Of Elvis-Glodean: Ohio's own Sons Of Elvis! Sort of post-grunge/alt. rock.
11)Brute Forcz-Out For Blood: Bought this one just for the album art and cheesy band photo inside! I plan to review this one as it's not that old (released I believe in Oct. of 2012) so I won't spoil things now!
So, there you have it. For less then $15 I got 11 albums that run the gamut from alternative rock to slayer-infused hardcore! In this day and age where everyone and their grandmother seems to have cell phones with Internet access there is no reason why you can't dig through a box and just search up bands you've never heard of. I have gotten more great albums (incl. rare & OOP) from dollar bins then I can count. My greatest find was an album that goes for up to $80 or more on Ebay that was opened, but otherwise MINT! So, take the time and search for yourself. For a dollar or two you just might find some real treasures!
