Die Hard 2LP Set:




(Description by C. Conrad)
Born under the political strife that led to the Balkan conflicts of the early 1990s, Bombarder formed in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia (now Bosnia and Herrzegovina) in 1986 with the lineup of Nenad Kovačević (vocals), Maho Šiljdedić (guitars), Zlatko Slatinac (guitars), Senad Ljubunčić (bass) and Senad Marava (drums). Although the band played a style of speed metal most heavily influenced by the likes of Exciter and Motorhead, Bombarder never reached the same level of exposure, due in part to their country’s geopolitical isolation and the aforementioned turmoil that had begun to engulf their homeland. Additionally, the exclusive reliance on their native Slavic tongue in their lyrics/vocals likely made them more inaccessible to a general audience than their primary inspirations. Nonetheless, Bombarder eventually gained a sizeable following in ex-Yugoslavia, and the road that led them there began with a healthy dose of live gigging in their early years. In 1989, the band released its first album, “Speed Kill,” on the obscure Yugoslavian label, Panonija Koncert, in a limited pressing on cassette only. Opening with an intro that features the sound of warplanes dropping bombs, justification for the band’s chosen moniker, which was intended to reflect the damage that their music would wreak on the listeners’ heads, is immediately established and reaffirmed throughout the course of the entire album. The music presented on this debut is a very raw style of speed metal, characterized by some of the gruffest vocals in the subgenre and an abundance of catchy riffs that often revolve around a single, repetitively-picked pedal tone, which is a speed metal hallmark. Only three thousand copies of the album were pressed and they sold relatively quickly, considering the band’s low international profile. Two years later, in 1991, the band returned to the same Vogue studio in which the debut was born in order to record their second album, “Bez Milosti (No Mercy),” which was released on vinyl LP and cassette by Panonija Koncert and Explosive Records (also of ex-Yugoslavia). This album was significantly more polished than the first and cemented Bombarder’s status as a favorite of metal fans in the region to the extent that it is considered a cult classic speed metal album in the former Yugoslavia. The style of “Bez Milosti” was very similar to that of the first album but with a greater degree of refinement, improved production, and more variation in song structures. Still present, however, was the strong influence of Exciter, most obviously exemplified by the song “Speed Metal Manijak,” which is a clear nod to the Canadian legends’ first album and title track, “Heavy Metal Maniac.” Unfortunately, full-scale war broke out in the Balkans shortly after the release of “Bez Milosti,” and the band took a hiatus from 1992 until 1995. Tragically, the war also resulted in the untimely death of guitarist Maho Šiljdedić, who had performed on both of the first two albums.
In reverence to these historic documents of Evil Slavic Speed Metal past, Nuclear War Now! proudly presents vinyl reissues of “Speed Kill” and “Bez Milosti,” which include both albums available separately on black vinyl or bundled together on colored vinyl as a die-hard edition. Since the master reels were lost during the war, great care was taken to procure the best sources available and the sound was properly remastered and restored by the venerable James Plotkin. The resulting product is one that calls appropriate attention to two speed metal relics that carry equal potency today as they did when originally conceived.

Regular version LP: Black vinyl LP, jacket, 12″ insert.
Die Hard version 2xLP set: Colored vinyl LPs, jackets, 12″ inserts, 2 x stickers, 2 x patches, NWN tote bag.

Will get the die-hard set of this and Blood as soon as IBP re-open, as I did for Dr. Shrinker. Glad you are doing that nice colours for the special editions instead of splatter vinyls.

I really like how the labels on Bombarder fits colourwise with the vinyl color. Specially the blue.

Layout was all done in collaboration with a professional graphic designer from Bosnia who had been a fan of the band since the early 90's.

I do mostly solid colors these days unless splatter fits better with the aesthetics of the band.

Being a Serb who had heard about this band looooong time ago and watched them live in 2007, I just don't understand the status they have here.

I guess you don't like well crafted speed metal?

Please recommend better metal from your country. Heller and Bloodbath are obvious ones but there must be more hidden gems.

I said so on insta and I'm going to say it again here, these turned out super nice, well done. As for the quality of the music I love the garage quality of it with the underlying tone that they know exactly what they're doing.
If I had the cash I would got the TPs too.

I wish you'd make the digital versions on Bandcamp available for purchase, though. Vinyl is a nice format, but not everyone's cup of tea.

Those die-hards looks nice, indeed! If they hold until next payday I assume they'll be the first purchase with the new DHL shipping option.

Based on the stuff you posted, it's clear that we just disagree on musical taste.

Obviously.


Back in 2005, when I watched Bombarder playing at Exit festival in Novi Sad, Nešo screamed "arriba arriba andale" between the verses. I'll never get that out of my head haha

That's no bueno. I don't really like current Bombarder but old Bombarder is speed metal gold.
