Don't get me wrong, I appreciate that they're still alive and viable, but I kind of wish the display pic was of them in the 80s.  
i also liked the principle behind last.fm of letting artist pages being user controlled, not dictated by hired agents..
I have a stack of old photos from the 80's, but to be honest, that was 25 years ago... also they wouldn't be relevant to todays line up...so you're stuck with the new ones.
heavydiscipline Where was this Shell gas station, I'm intrigued...
They're even awesome on stage! i was pretty worry about it when i've heard they was re-forming,you know,lots of old bands are doin it but then they sounds like something without passion,without soul...well,i'm happy to say Deviated Instinct are different! their gigs in Bologna and Modena were great!!!
but i don't gives a fuck,and even if REAL purist AND closeminded people tell me "if you like deviated instinct and amebix you can't listen to tragedy or neurosis"..i still do it! and i like it a lot! the fact that i prefer crust punk and hardcore punk in general (that answering to another of your point:is sure not about sound quality...but even not really about noise,in MY opinion is just about attitude,the soul you put in it!) does not change the fact that i like lots of different music/noise..and,once again,this not make me a purist at all i guess..also,i've personally met and talked with D.I. and i'm still in contact with some of them..and trust me,some of them actually enjoy lots of that "post metal neo crust stuff"..this should make you think..where is the problem about it? :) so,for ending this point (that is gettin a little annoying):listen what you prefer..just do it if you actually like it,not for a trend! ;) that's all! cheers!
Once again..you're saying something i've not said..it's not about having a purist musical taste..i hate most of 100% purist people,cuz often they're close minded...what i'm just saying is:please don't listen to a band just because is considered "trendy"(as some people i see around consider d.i...and i hate the fact to see crust punk and the micro-world related to it considered trendy! ),just do it if you really like it! i don't give a fuck about tags! i'm even one those who listen and play "prefab post metal neo-crust stuff" as you said (prefab? i don't think so..and btw,if so,what's the difference between it and lots of usual black metal or d-beat or trash metal or whatever bands? real difference is:in any genre there are bands that play with their heart,that are often the minority nowadays,trough a sea of shit without soul)..and trust me,being into the punk/crust/hc/metal scene and enjoying that kind of stuff is not considered cool or just "true"or "pure" at all down here...
Spurcatu..what's your problem?? i never claimed to be "crust" (although crust punk is probably what i prefer,musically and ideologically) and my comment was shure not about show "how crust i am"..i don't give a fuck about it...i was just expriming disappointment for the fact that recently lots of people claim to like and know bands as d.i. just because they're considered cool,not because they actually like them..as for lots of other bands..and that's not paranoia,is just the sad truth.. they're one of my favourite bands and i think they would deserve more respect than being threated as a momentary trend..that's all.. i was just expriming an opinion..you can argue or agree with it,but attack me with such silly shit is out of the context..btw,i don't wanna start any stupid "internet fight"...so..have a good life! :)
most of the new crust-dbeat bands are inspired by bands like amebix hellbastard axegrinder hellkrusher or deviated instinct and in this train of thoughts they cant be unknown bands i think that hellbastard and amebix are pretty boring too but they are seminal bands and we suppose to show more respect
To everyone said they're an unknow band...well,i don't know there,but here,'till 2/3 years ago we were actually few people listening to them or that just have heard about their name,even in the crust scene..and i was one of the really few young kids actually listening to them (most of the few other people were way oldier..)...and that was stupid,because they're pure history! and they're great!...but now..well,now EVERYONE seems like listening to D.I. into the crust scene..now stenchcore is "COOL",is the fashion of the moment(and few people actually understand what stenchcore means i guess)..so everyone seems like been into amebix,antisect,d.i.,axegrinder,doom,hellbastard.....or recent bands as stormcrow,sanctum,...as everyone seems like been into early trash and black metal..and everyone looks like hating tragedy,f.a.r.,ekkaia,ecc...and,in my opinion,i don't know what's better..if before,when almost no one knew them here..or now that everyone has to SHOW to know them....
