H8000 Hardcore Compilations Vol. 1 and Vol. 2

Published by


Under your nose here is the test pressing of the legendary H8000 hardcore compilation vol. 1. There are only 8 made of this highly sought after H8000 jewel. Even the regular vinyl version is very hard to find, since there are only 500 made, namely 400 on black and 100 only on green wax. I have never seen it in trade lists before!
The labels who released this are Sober Mind & Genet Records. This extensive compilation has all the well-known bands like Congress, Liar, Blindfold and Sektor but also some smaller bands like Lifecycle, ODK-Crew and Instinct.
It is also released on CD, but this one recently sold out on Good Life. If you have this compilation you can praise yourself happy, as I am with this. It is a document of a very interesting and sprawling scene of the nineties.
The matrix of the record says “Hate towards a backbiting society” on the A-side and “Another Fine H8000 product” and on the B-side.

If there is a vol. 1, there must be a vol. 2 also. And yes, Reality records and Pyro Records realized a volume 2 in the year 2003 with Solid, Empathy, Forced Hate and nobody less than Rise And Fall, who is now on Deathwish inc! It is a four song 7 inch, that you can see below. Matrix says “H8000 back on the rise”.

  1. The H8000 II 7″ep was handed out at the 2003 h8000 fest. Still have some for trade/sale here.

    There is a volume 3, as in the “H8000-HC Oct. 6 2007″ 7”, handed out at the H8000 fest on that date.It was on Grimskull records, and came on black and green color. There are some green/black transistion colors too. Only 300 copies exist. There's also an alternate sleeve. Jasper

  3. Not sure if this one is supposed to be volume 3, that's why I didn't publish it in this post. But you are certainly right on the colors,the sleeves and the amount made…

  4. Yeah, this can go on as volume 3 for sure…
