Not many foreign bands, in fact only one band has managed to be recognized by the crew as H8000 hardcore. I already mentioned the band in a previous post and I’m talking about the band SHAFT for Germany.
I already found their 7inch a while ago in the rare section of the Good Life webstore (and it’s still available over there on black). But along with some other H8000 stuff I also bought the colored version from a private seller. Here is a picture of how it looks.
|RARE color version of the SHAFT 7 Inch (out of 100 copies)|
Really basic with non-printed labels. The sleeve is a fold-out paper that is only printed on one side. Really made that way to lower the costs. Lyrics are on separate insert.
|Mind Deception Must Fall * In God We Dust|
Looking at a part of the scarce text on the back of the cover we see immediately the atheist convictions that are typical of all H8000 bands.
This 7inch was recorded in Lokeren, Belgium at MIDAS Studio like every other H8000 band.
They also have a CD that became almost impossible to find. But here’s a picture for the collectors so that they recognize the cover while browsing the objects in the record racks or on the internet-listings and don’t skip it over without knowing:
