Another really interesting compilation is this one here, featuring two early metal bands from Costa Rica:

- "Todo El Rock" (Costa Rica, 1987):

I see on various FB group that this Costarican compilation isn't particularly impossible to find.
have it ...^^
There are also 1 or 2 more AOR songs featured, but besides Distorsion and Armagedon it's not really worth to buy for big money, especially since all songs of Distorsion and Armagedon was taken from their singles.
It's not easy to be the Antichrist ...

And a serie of 3 compilation tapes (never released on vinyl but re-released on CD a few years ago) from Malaysia with exclusive bands/recordings and not the countless other compilation with recycled over and over and over and over again songs from previous albums or compilation:

7) "War Rock I - Sengsara Timur Tengah" (Mutiara Records, 1987 with Pratayuda, Medicine, The Kids, Midnight) - nothing special but Medicine deliver two songs much rawer and hars than on the shitty debut album in the following year:

8 ) "War Rock II - Malaya" (Mutiara Records, 1987, with Stroyer, Dewanga, Kejora, BC Rockers) - already much better. Only Kejora released something else beside these debut tracks:

9) "War Rock III" (Mutiara Records, 1987, with Chakrawala, Mentari, Eyes Killers, Spring). Spring here are much more metal than in their successive debut album, while Eyes Killers later became the very successful and known Dinamik:

My poor wantlist... :cry:

Interesting about those War Rock volumes - my source claimed they WERE available as infamous "DJ Copy" vinyl promos as well, but it was a 2nd gen source and I've never seen pictures of them...
The other Malaysian ones I was aware of and they are indeed VERY high on my wantlist - as are practically all Malay comps.

In 15 years of Malaysia and 5+ years of joining dozens of selling/trading groups from there, I've never seen the vinyl version of the three "War Rock".... even because Warna (to be not confused with Warnada) / Mutiara / Kuching / YY / Sinaran Musikal (all belonging to the same group) have never released anything on vinyl and it couldn't be otherwise else considering they were ultra low budget cassettes sold at half price the usual selling price of other labels: only ultracheap CDs and Karaoke VCDs in recent years have been done... they were (and still are) among the poorest, shittiest, cheapest label ever.... when the CD version came out 3-4 years ago people thought they could be bootleg as the label was supposed to have ceased activities years before. Actually they are still active and their target customers were (and still are) mainly indonesian immigrants and/or not wealthy customers. The only rock releases made by this group of labels (which are basically all connected) are just these three volumes of War Rock and a re-release of May's "Strategi" sold at half price (which was, by the way, originally released on tape and CD by Antares Records and never re-released so far on CD or vinyl). Basically it was a group of label totally dedicated to pop yeh yeh (malaysian beat and psycho rock n roll from the 60's) and indonesian dangdut with countless compilation, best of and split.... but I highly doubt they ever released the three "War Rock" on vinyl, I'm 99,99 % sure
