Mottek Riot LP

Out in two versions (“raw” mix and “final” mix – the former being livelier, the latter more homogenized). Even on the raw mix, the sound is pretty clean and straightforward, a very powerful British type of hardcore. Good stuff.

Mottek Hypnose LP

MOTTEK are one of the new generation of high-quality German hardcore outfits. They combine full guitar power, an extremely tight instrumental backing, and good songwriting. Whether thrashing or punking out, MOTTEK manage to come up with memorable hooks, and the crisp production on this album only accentuates these qualities. Very good indeed.
