va - killed by death MEGAPOST #1 - 10

punk record collectors and avid hardcore nerds alike are no stranger to the killed by death series of compilations. these records mostly showcased some of the best (and, admittedly, worst) of the rare, obscure, and/or overlooked punk glut from around the world during the late 70s and early 80s, sending many otherwise casual record collectors into a sweating fury to find original copies. enter the age of the internet and auction sites such as ebay and every band ever featured in the KBD series now fetches ridiculously high prices. while most of these records are well worth owning, they surely are NOT worth what most people are paying for them.

here for your review are KILLED BY DEATH compilations #1 - 10, a good place to start if you're interested in hearing some rare, obscure punk from all corners of the earth, or to re-acquaint yourself if you have "been there, done that" already. this is actually a re-up for an anonymous commenter. normally, i would probably pass on such a large request under the cloak of anonymity, but i do believe this is should be one of those punk rocker's rites of passage. everyone should be exposed to the joys (and in some cases, utter tastelessness or annoyances) of these collections.

KILLED BY DEATH!?
