V/A- Killed By Death #4 CD.  There was a time when you could get seriously beat up for listening to music that sounded like this. And thank god to the creators of the Killed By Death series for keeping this music alive. There were so many great punk singles that were produced in such stunning minute quantities that, without this series, there would scarcely be a soul who'd even heard of them. Volume 4 leads you into the distinctly-dubious, late-'70s/early-'80s (mainly) U.S. punk scene with a snarling demeanor to match. Four tracks from the Zero Boys include the brick-bat hurling "Stoned to Death," while Filth's "Don't Hide Your Hate" and Heart Attack's "God Is Dead" are high enough on attitude that the actual musical ineptitude that seems to be this particular collection's main criteria is scarcely even noticeable. Punk, after all, was never about actually being able to play your instruments, but even by the genre's traditional standards, Mad Virgins' "Fuck & Suck" and the Rotters' deeply un-PC "Sink the Whales (Buy Japanese Goods)" are a clattering racket built around adrenalin and shock value that work. Far more than on earlier volumes, the American bias of the collection is broken up by the inclusion of a handful of imported sounds. Holland's Filth (later reprised on the Killed by Epitaph collection) and Belgium's Mad Virgins are joined by the U.K.'s rippers Jerks, Sweden's Brulkbajz, Canada's Subhumans, and Australia's Victims, all of them blasting through on a high-octane mix of disdain, discordancy and some genuinely dangerous songs. The end result is a solid 17 track album of Raw Punk Rock from 1977 - ‘82.
