BRANDKOMMANDO - 1989 MC
A tape edition of the BRANDKOMMANDO new album.
A tape edition of the BRANDKOMMANDO new album. The latest album of BRANDKOMMANDO, one of the most important Polish Power Electronics projects released by Zoharum.

The blue-yellow-red flag with the insignia of the country’s communist party cut out became the symbol of these bloody, but very important, changes in Romania.
Brandkommando is a representative of the Polish power electronics scene. The project, founded by Karol Wachowski in 2005, has so far published several dozen publications, cooperating with, among others, with labels such as Beast of Prey, Mask of Slave, Phage Tapes, Skulline and others.

The album is available on CD, cassette and digital.
