Hungarian National Front Interview

* The following interview is not one of the typical for the blog. Although we don't agree with everything stated below, it’s one of the most interesting and informative we ever done. Hope it will be a high matter of interest for our readers.

1. Hello to MNA (Hungarian National Front), greetings from Revolt NS blogzine. Please introduce briefly your organization – year of foundation, main activities, etc?



- The Hungarian National Front was established in 1989. In the first place, the Front organized camps and other youth programs, but regularly there were various commemorations and later on fund raising campaigns, and tending of war-graves, etc.. Back then, it was the strongest, and basically the only patriotic youth organization. After more fundamental changes, it has developed into strong organization of military style, and these days it also demonstrates an increasingly stronger and determining political factor.

 Nowadays the soldierly line of national defense and the multilingual informing and preparing work through the Jövőnk.info are the most determining factors. The political-social wing of the movement is also developing, just like the revitalization of the youth line. Besides the camps, trainings and other programs, presentations our specialized activists take part in e.g. in the fight against eviction. (In Hungary due to the abuse of the bank's authority the homes of people are taken away in large numbers.) The development of social dialogue and contacts at home as well as abroad are at full steam. We are also preparing for the imminent change, which will ensue irrespective of us – the question is: how will we stand our ground? If it depends on us, the future is ours!


2. What is the personal profile of the average MNA member – worker, middle class, intellectual or all this kinds put together?

- The membership of our movement covers all layer of society. It is in line with our ideology, which acknowledges all kinds of valuable work, form blue collar trades to white collar professions (also known as intellectual worker according to our terminology) and considers everyone as worker.

3. Tell us about your training camps? How often you organize them? What are the main activities inside such an event Do you think that MNA can be described as a “paramilitary” organization?

- A country wide main camp is organized annually at the central camping ground of the movement, as well as several open camps and regional camps. Beside them, there are the camps of the local groups, and their other trainings, which are usually held weekly or fortnightly.

There are military style preparations in the camps of the task groups, with additional political, historical, ideological, religious lectures and discussions. From time to time the traditional youth camp is also organized, which is also characterized by military discipline, but with less formal programs like horseback riding, archery, and the embracing our traditions.


During our camps and other events, we keep the physical, mental and spiritual development of the participants in view.

According to the liberal terminology we could talk about a paramilitary organization, however we stand for the most natural patriotic point of view and lifestyle, and military life is a vital element of that.


4. What are your views on Hungarism? Please provide us some basic info about this ideology which is almost unknown for the people outside Hungary?

- The MNA is the legal continuity of the Hungarist Movement (which represented the Hungarian national socialism) of the age, because after the movement continued to live in exile, and with the appointment of Győrkös István, it returned to Hungary ultimately. However, we cannot stop at any point of history, for this reason the leadership has expanded the notion of Hungarism, therefore we consider all kinds of act in history as Hungarist manifestation, which gave answers of Hungarian interest to current challenges. Today, we consider Hungarism principally as a life style system, which determines the daily life of our movement's membership. The basic principles of Hungarism are dictated by the Hungarian peculiarities, but it may have message for other nations too. It is an approach respecting the beliefs of others, the peace and collaboration of interdependent people at home and abroad too, militaristic philosophy, and morality-centred lifestyle.

5. After the Trianon “Peace” Treaty, Hungary lost nearly 70% of its territory. Do you think that is possible to take these lands back in the nearest future? Do you cooperate with organizations representing Magyar minority (or better say majority) from these areas in Slovakia, Romania, and Serbia...?

- The Trianon Peace Treaty was due to the machinations of the international freemasonry for the most part. Its goal was not to punish or reward any of the parties, but to perpetuate tensions. The peace treaty was a grievous injustice against Hungary. However, being fully aware of its real goal, the essence of the matter is not what kind of results we can achieve while fighting against each other. The goal and the final solution is the creation of national peace in the Carpathian Basin. The nations of the region are interdependent. Thousand years of history, mutual problems, the challenges of the era unite us all.

We maintain relations in every successor state with our fellow countrymen who were left beyond the border. With individuals, organizations, settlements. We help settlements who are badly off with offerings, our social-political organization delivered a truckload of cargo (school and sport equipments, textbooks, computer equipments, etc.) to Kárpátalja (Sub-Carpathian in Ukraine).We consult the foreign organizations in certain matters, and make inquiries through them. What is more, we have members and even groups of Hungarians beyond the borders.

According to the above, we strive after connections with Hungarians beyond the borders, but also with the patriotic organizations of neighbouring nations (who are enemies according to the Freemason goal). Because our movement is based on moral grounds, it judges others on the basis moral. Therefore the true patriotism is not a dividing factor but rather a connecting link. The discord and the oppositions which set all of us back must be stopped. Last October during the Friendship of Nations program in Komárom – split in half by the border – we expressed this view of ours with a Slovak organization, the Slovenská Pospolitos. The event was also joined by the Serb Nacionalij Stroj.

Our efforts in the interest of national reconciliation are so successful, that there were candidates from the circles of neighbouring brother nations, who joined our ranks. This can be called at least unusual! The management of this situation will be negotiated with the organization that we recognize in the given nation.

We recommend the revision of any deteriorated neighbourly relation for every nation. Even if we have any discord from history, we will have the time in the future to debate them, after we defeated those phenomenons, which are threatening all of us and the whole world (like Zionism, globalism, moral and intellectual decline). This can be done only by joining forces, helping each other, but by no means of hindering.

6. MNA was organizing the Day of Honour March in the late 90's. What events happened in 1999 which lead to the ban of event from the government?

- More and more patriot has attended in every year the Day of Honour evens, from all across Europe. The power of course disapproved this, and it had to prevent this event of honour and order from further growth. By the way, the very same party is in the power right now in Hungary, with patriotic-like political slogans (reflecting the changes over time). Of course, patriotic ideas, our movement, and the Day of Honour are continuously persecuted.

7. How do you celebrate Day of Honour in last few years, some words about the “Breakout excursion”?

- After the last, large event in the Buda Castle our public programs were banned, our movement was basically banned from the capitol. In the following years our groups were commemorating on the countryside, locally at military graves, memorials, in certain cases with the participation of the locals. The holiday due to the ban has become a nation-wide event. In the Buda Castle one of our comrades or delegations has placed the flower of remembrance in every year, and the Breakout Excursion has also been organized by one of our groups. In the meantime the strategy of the movement was shifted after a process of purification, and the quiet development, preparation was emphasized in place of public activity.


We became public again two years ago, with the Jövőnk.info news page and establishing the Egységes Magyarország Mozgalom (Unified Hungary Movement), a social-political wing of our movement. In the next year the Day of Honour was publicly organized again, in the Buda Mountains on a private property. All of the significant organizations of Hungary lined up on the commemoration. In the last year, the organization of the event was impeded by the power on the private property too, therefore the ceremony was held in the mountains, on a forest clearing, at the lights of torches. The remembrance was also joined by Slovak, Serb, Russian and German patriots. The attendance was significant, the performance was especially good on the 50 km long distance, which was challenging, but it was a worthy tribute to our Heroes!

8. Did any of your members took part in the anti government riots in September – October 2006? What are your memories from those days?

- None of our then members took part in the events of 2006. The story of September was a pre-written scenario, it was an early “revolution”. In Hungary, trade protests were being prepared due to the dissatisfaction with the government, which would have questioned the very foundations of democracy. This was counteracted by the power, with the riots, which were provoked by the secret agency. Their goal was to connect the notion of protest to the “extremists” instead of the trade demonstrations and general social discontent, and to set the police against the protesters. In addition to these, one more goal was leaked: they wanted to set a trap for the militant patriots. (Back then, the MNA was the only such organization in Hungary.) However, we saw through the events from the beginning, so we not just stayed away from the events, but we tried to unveil the essence of the problem as far as possible.

9. Hungary has a lot of NS/nationalist organizations like B&H, HSN, NS Front, Hungaria skins, “Skins for Skins” just to mention a few. Do you cooperate with any of them? Do you face problems with some of them and why?

- Around the turn of millennium, the MNA broke with skinheads. Before that, all organizations of this kind belonged to the MNA. They were an undisciplined and uncontrollable, and their company was infiltrated with agents. Later on, while the commemorations of the MNA were sent by the power into exile to the countryside, these companies have organized their own, so called Day of Honour events in the capitol. With the movement became public again two years ago, there was an attempt to contact them before the Day of Honour, but it ended up in a harsh refusal on their part. However, they were unable to organize the counter-event and they failed ignominiously. On the anniversary, one might say, we regularly have a quarrel with them. The outcome of this result is less than unsuccessful for them, but beyond this clash, not really hears about them. With the national awakening of recent years, the have been pushed into the background. As for the individuals, there are some great men among them, but quite a few slobs and untrustworthy individual. We have a superficial-like, occasional relationship with some of them.

10. Your opinion on the Skinhead subculture and the music scene related to it? Do you think gigs are good propaganda tool or just a “fun party” for people already converted to Nationalism?

- As I said, a good ten years ago we utterly broke with those, who were unable to break from the sub-culture. Gig of any kinds did not result in practical outcomes. It might be good to address the youth, but cannot show the way for them any further. A good number of the concert-goers are satisfied with that program, and the duty is confined to that. From time to time our spectators attend an event or two where the concert is part of the program. They hardly see anyone who might be "recruit" at all. We believe that even the events are destroyed by scheduled binge drinking, which are the main events for many of the participants.

Members of the MNA do not attend concerts, gigs. It is not prohibited for our outer rings (EMM, task groups), but they must know, where to put these events in the set of values. If music and entertainment, than we are rather recommending folk music, and the programs, balls of traditionalist groups.

11. As everywhere in Eastern Europe your Fatherland is suffering from the gypsy plague. What is the salvation of the problem for MNA?

- The gypsy question deteriorated to the very last cannot be solved by democratic means. By the way it is only a matter of order. With the cease of the Zionist hegemony the solution of the gypsy question will be a matter of 24 hours.

12. What do you think about religions?

- Without religion you cannot be a human being. The MNA is based on Christian foundations. We regularly have religious seminars and conversations in our camps. But before our exercises, we pray to God for aiding. We are inquisitive about the religious belief in our outer rings, but our members cannot be godless or atheists. We acknowledge every religion based on love, but we refuse hate-based, destructive religions, cults.

13. Your opinion on the Muslim invasion in Europe?

- The matter of Arabic immigration and the Islam has to be separated. Although, in Hungary immigration is a less serious problem, it is all the more severe issue in Europe. (Side note: the colonizing and foreign workforce importing nations had only themselves to thank for it...) However, the immigrating, often criminal, rioting alien mobs cannot be identified with the Islam. By the way, Islamic religion of strong faith is a potential ally in the battle against Zionism.

See the following articles on Jovonk.info: The Islam and the Arab immigration and the fight of the Light against Darkness! - Joint force against Zionism!


14. What is your view on Revisionism (Holocaust)? Do you have anti “Holocaust denial” laws in Hungary?

- Since a law like that was ratified in Hungary too, we are not allowed to have opinion! :) In practice this law has no effect on us. Because we do not deny holocaust, but we are giving proof to complete disinterest in the matter. Nobody cares, otherwise in Hungary the whole society do not give a thing about it. We recommend this attitude for the warriors of light elsewhere too. Denial is impossible due to the tyrannical laws, let us therefore express our disinterest. It is the more annoying for our enemies, nobody is interested in their whine, and they are irrelevant.

15. Let's move forward to political questions... do you think that nationalist party could gain the power someday thru a democratic process of elections? What do you think about nowadays “democracy in general”?

- This could happen in the heroic age of national-socialism. They would not let happen the same mistake. The whole parliamentary democracy is shaped in such a way that a patriot (even in opposition) is only allowed into the circle, if they let him in. Although it is feasible, that a regime deemed to fall wants to preserve its power through infiltrating into a nationalistic party or even helping it to come to power. So if an impressively nationalistic party comes near to power that is suspicious at least. It does happen in exceptional cases, that a not-impressively nationalistic group serves with unexpected surprise and it comes to light when they gain power, that in their deeds they are a lot more patriotic, than the noisy flag-weavers. We believe this is what happened in Russia, which has become the opposition of the Israeli-American Zion-power. But this could give hope to the patriotic movements of various nations, especially in Eastern-Europe.

The existing democracy does not work, and the working one does not exist...

16. Do you face legal problems from the authorities? Have been you been attacked by the local liberal mass media? Do you think that MNA could be banned someday?

We only have troubles with the power, we stand against each other, and we represent the two different ends of the spectrum. With the direct authorities (police) our relationship is not necessarily bad. They are as aware of the things as we are. A leader of a police labour-union is held in captivity by the power, because she stands up for the truth. Of course, the police are in the hand of the power, so the current command and the individual approach decide a situation.

The media have hushed our existence up for years. When they have to address the topic, the aggression is natural, we cannot expect anything else. There are surprisingly correct (but by no means friendly) articles sometimes. There are journalists, who despite their opposite opinions are eager to provide credible information.

MNA is not a registered organization, therefore it cannot really be banned legally. Of course, in a democracy it is not necessarily a problem. But the spirituality cannot be destroyed with bans, so this is the least of our worries. The Front means serious problem and dilemma for the power. If they determine themselves to take action, that would not stop at bans.


17. Is it possible for Hungary to get rid off from the financial slavery, because of the debts to the International Banking system? What should be the best economical program for your country if you have a chance to apply it?

We are convinced that the current regime will soon collapse under the weight of its own sins. If the Hungarians come out victorious from the period following the collapse (the movement prepares for this time), then this question of debt can be cancelled. Like everything else, economy is a matter of morality. And on such a basis many things can achieved in this country. Our economic experts are working on the details. To keep the Hungarian land, water, etc. In the hands of Hungarians, minimizing the import, production, storage, regional agriculture and distribution, suitable foreign trade partners, reasonable organization of Hungarian interest, and what is the most important: work! In our worker's state everybody is working, there is no freeloading or social parasitism.

18. How do you see MNA after 10 years?

- After 10 years, the world represented by the MNA right now, will be the country itself hopefully. Therefore there will be no need for particular organizations fighting for justice – only up to a supervisory level.


19. Blitz questions! What do you think about?

• Szalasi Ferenc and Arrow cross movement's:

- He formulated and embodied the historical Hungarism. He gave appropriate answers for the challenges of the era. May God rest his soul! We must give the appropriate answers to the challenges of our own era.


• Islamic Republic of Iran, their President and the foreign politics of the country:

- The Islamic Republic of Iran gives an example not only for the Arabic region but also for the whole world. One of the brightest torches in the ongoing battle against darkness. Mahmoud Ahmedinejad deserves our highest esteem. It is doubtless, that Iran will be the determining foreign partner of the future Hungarian worker's state.

• Football hooliganism:

- They have taken away everything from the youth, there is no youth life, programs, and there are no communities. It is no surprise that they are seeking the opportunity to belong to some kind of community. However, nowadays the opportunities are given to find communities with real, constructive goals, where we can let off steam either with sport or with work. Instead of beating up each other – as if our enemies are not enough without it.


• sXe way of life

- We do not especially follow the sub-cultures, trends with attention. The philosophy is good, but we hope that the future generations will get to there that they will follow the right lifestyle without fashion trends. By the way, there are not too many followers for the aforementioned trend. According to their indications, they are aware of us, and have a positive view of our work.

Used to the ban of alcohol in our youth camps, events have caused quite a stir. This was also the part of purification and inner construction. By the time a part of the breaking off skinheads have come to a similar conclusion, a regulation of that kind was already redundant in our ranks. Everybody should handle this issue. The problem is not the alcohol, but the person, who cannot use it properly.

20. What do you know about Bulgaria, our history and the links between the proto Bulgarian tribes and the Huns?

- We have no idea about how history is taught in Bulgaria, how the national identity is handled, but it is typical in Hungary, that the official history teaching questions our relationship with the Huns, though in fact we are one and the same people. The life style, culture of the ancients of the Hungarians and the Bulgarians might be quite similar, the two were a kind of related peoples. In our history of the 20 century we have many similarities too – lost wars, detached regions, hostile neighbouring nations, territorial disputes. Above the others, if the changes (that we are seeking) took place, in the future our countries might fall in the same sphere of interest.


21. Thanks a million for the interview!!! Last words are yours. Anything else you would like to tell the readers of our blog?

- The time will come soon, where the individuals, groups, organizations, nations and countries have to take sides, decide where they do belong. Intentionally or unintentionally they take the part of the forces of the evil, or they will take up the cudgels for truth. The enemy is not the nations or races, not the ideologies, but the Satan itself! And the resistance is the warriors of the light, God may help them. The stake: the truth, order and morals win or the lies, chaos and destruction? It depends on us!

RAC Encyclopedia - part 5

After a long break the rubric is back online. Sometimes is really hard to collect information from reliable source which is full enough to be called a “ band’s history". To all our readers who are able to help for the next volumes of the “RAC Encyclopedia” – please contact us on the Blog’s e-mail – your help will be welcomed!!! Let’s go forward to the very interesting read of this chapter, this time we focused our attention on Czech/Slovak part of the scene

Buldok


Buldok is a band from Czech Republic newly formed after the dissolution of Brigada Oi. In 1992 Buldok appears in the scene with their most pure skinhead recording, regarding to the subject of the songs,: the MC 'Patriot', which includes fourteen songs in Czech. Their lyrics are the typical of the skins of those years, as it is evidenced by titles like 'Patriot', 'Renee' or 'Skinhead'. Their RAC was soft and melodic, without being aggressive and where the voice of Tom highlights. My favourite track on this recording is 'Bilá boure'.

In less than two years Buldok recorded their second album 'Ohen a led ', an album that has been very popular since then. That album from 1994 included nine songs in Czech, three of them were included in the international compilation "White Pride World Wide Vol.2", as you can see Buldok had not gone unnoticed at the time. 'Ohen a led' was released again in 1999, this time including fifteen tracks of the band, four of them instrumentals, and the following year, in 2000, it was also published with the title and lyrics in English 'Fire and Ice'. This edition included fourteen songs, with the same four instrumental songs. And a couple of years ago, in 2008, a German label re-released this compact with their subjects in English. So really the album 'Ohen a led'' has been spined out.

 A couple of years passed until we could hear a new Buldok album, in this occasion was 'Skrewface', a miniCD which included six songs, four of them in Czech, one instrumental and one in English. For me, this is their masterpiece, the music and the voice of Tom are full of mysticism, whether or not you understand the lyrics. Perhaps is their most metal album. But undoubtedly the most productive year was 1997 when the band released two LPs. On the one hand, 'Triumf' a CD with eleven songs that continue the same line of their two previous albums, here you can found great songs like 'Nová Krev', 'Mission: Spandau', or the famous' Exodus' and 'Triumph of the will '. In the other LP the band members made their big jump, with an all-English album 'Creed of Iron' with eight songs including the famous closing song "Ode to Bob Matthews." We must highlighting the fact that this year George Burdi, the well known member of that famous band Rahowa (and later a traitor), collaborated with the lyrics of Buldok, especially of the album 'Triumf'.

Finally comes the year 1999, when surprisingly Buldok recorded their next album with the Spanish label Rata-ta-ta-ta. It was 'Blood and Soil', another CD entirely in English this time with twelve songs. Buldok in the decade of the 90’s was already been set over as a band adored by skins but whose lyrics have surpassed the typical skinhead themes talking more about mythological themes, full of pride. Of course this was an original point of view and innovation that allowed Buldok to escape the censorship and repression that in the late nineties suffered the NS scene, to which with no doubt this band belonged.

However Buldok members were not unaware of what was happening around him and finally the band members decided to put an end to the band as they knew for sure that sooner or later the media and the repressive machinery would go after them as it happened in the late nineties with other famous bands that played throughout the decade. Again, as it happened with other bands of the Czech scene, the members of the band dissolved Buldok without being that the end for them. Particularly active, Tom the Buldok's singer, became involved in other projects in the scene, in Thodverdtur, a project with thrash / death metal influences and in Wolfheart, that which no doubt follow the trail of the subjects about Buldok spoke during many years. The truth is that I had not much interest in these projects but for the fans I would say that Thodverdthur recorded his first LP before the dissolution of Buldok, in 1998, entitled "Killed by the night of Nordic wrath" with nine songs in English, and the following year they released a live album with ten songs called 'Live'. Meanwhile Wolfheart appeared on the scene in 2002 with an LP with 12 long songs in English. However, no more than four years ago, Tom breaks this mystical and mythological pattern with an apolitical project called Outsider, which recorded a demo with four songs. This new project is different to other headed by Tom and the lyrics, which a friend describes as 'a response to life', are perhaps more existential. His song 'Láska Je Kurva' is sung in duet with a female voice and there is another song that makes clear what I mean: 'Carpe Diem'.

Excalibur


Another Czech formation formed as a metamorphosis of the band Diktator, after this band published the album 'Vpred Stale’. They do not left too much time to start working on his new style and new songs, but his first album will not be published until 1996 when appears their CD 'Apokalypsa', which for me is their best work. The quality of the band is unique, magnificent and powerful. Their sound has mutated from a typical unpretentious RAC music to a bloody great WP Metal with many technical details that put Excalibur in the collections of the skins from around the world in those years, when from the U.S. they only talked mostly about bands such as BFG, Berserkr and others that were making a more powerful sound than was hitherto the skinhead sound.

'Apokalypsa' is certainly an album well worked and matured. It consist of twelve songs with strong lyrics with space tended to show off their musical quality, with exquisite guitar playing, notable for example in 'Hej Bratre!' o 'I'm your death'.... The opening of the CD and the first song 'Teror' is very good and in this album you could find what to me is a masterpiece and perhaps the best song of Excalibur, 'Bílý rytír Ian'', dedicated to Ian Stuart. This work is also remarkable in other ways, for example, the language. Excalibur dares to sing in English almost half the songs on this album, in a country like the Czech Republic where scarcely only three choirs had been sung in English, especially must be appointed Skrewdriver version of 'European dream', plus 'Excalibur' and 'Stalingrad '.

This album did not go unnoticed in Western Europe and other countries like the U.S., saying for example, the famous Resistance, magazine that "Excalibur was the Metallica of Eastern Europe". No doubt, they were right.

 Sooner in 1997 appears a new album 'Neni cesty zpet, 1994-1996' which includes songs from the band in those years. The band self produced this new album following the same musical line as the previous one, but in this album were repeated a few songs: 'Vladcí Lzí', 'Lovec', '14 Words' and 'Stralingrad'. It included a version of the famous "Free my land' and various original songs in Czech, in total eleven tracks. Excalibur had captured half the world and musicians such as Ed of BFG or Brandom of Squadron began to collaborate with the band, especially in the lyrics in English.

In 1998 appears a new album of the band, 'Auri Sacra Fames', whose cover is quite explicit (notable for its meaning). A new self-produced work in collaboration with an North-American label. This time includes ten tracks without changing the style and you can find in it two of their best songs, in my point of view, it's first cut 'Stigma Zradcú' and the amazing 'Night Trains' which is the last of the eight unforgettable musical minutes of the album . Additionally, this CD had three songs in English and an excellent set.

Excalibur subsequently launched a new album with fifteen songs compiled from his early works, this time the album is produced by the German PC Records and is titled 'Memoirs' (although in some places is called 'Burning Memoirs'). But until 1999 does not appear a new album with new songs, the title 'Thurisaz'. This CD includes twelve lashes in which you can see that the sound of Excalibur was evolving into the extreme metal. I'm not very fond of this style but the instrumental song 'Ritual' is the best along with 'Leon The Brave'. Is in this CD where Ed of BFG collaborates in lyrics such as "Altar of lies', 'Painbringer' and 'Hidden Gods', you can also see Brad's contribution, and to a lesser extent Jim of Squadron in the lyrics of songs like 'Parasite', 'Brave new world' or 'Into Victory’.

Now in the new millennium the band reappeared two years later with the album: ‘The water, the soil & the sand', his latest album. The album was recorded in 2001 and the album included ten songs entirely in English, all own songs with very well done lyrics, except perhaps 'Brainwashed' which has a repetitive chorus. The following year, 2002, Movement Rec published this CD with ten hard Death Metal songs only suitable for the fans. After this, and considering that the band eventually will be objective of the justice, they decided to dissolve the band. Although some things must be noted, first Excalibur never had any illegal song, and second the band members were never arrested.

 Excalibur that year said goodbye to the scene. However, its members did not leave the music. Bruno, the singer pulled out the project Under the Runes and recorded his first album 'Born like the wind' in 2002 that was produced by Draupnir Rec. With a dozen songs sung in Czech and English, with a soft RAC style with some ballads, this album includes versions of Skrewdriver and Brutal Attack. And finally, Bruno, along with the guitar of Excalibur, formed other musical project perhaps best known: Desolated.

Biely Odpor



One of the best ever NS bands of Slovakia was certainly Biely Odpor, a quintet from the capital, Bratislava. A band that is in the top ten of my favourites of the two countries discussed in this reports and whose sound transferee me to my adolescence. Biely Odpor 's discography goes hand in hand with Victory Records who produced all their albums except 'The best of ...'. Biely Odpor knew how to mix in perfection a RAC sound with heavy metal touches with their guitars and drums performing a music than can make you levitate.


Lyrics of Biely Odpor always talked about current affairs issues that even today have relevance as drugs in the discotheque scene in an amazing song called 'Zlodej mysle' (The thief of minds) and others subjects like homosexuality, life on the street and other, for example, about mythological issues. Although Biely Odpor made references in their songs to the gypsy issue, they did not compose any song explicit about Jews and never could be accused of anti-Semitic. Although in some songs there were metaphors that can be understood as references to Zionism.

I do not know exactly when the band was formed, but their first album called 'Hlas Kvri' was published in 1996 with nine tracks edited by the above named Victory Rec. 'Hlas Kvri ' ('The voice of the blood') had nine songs sung in Slovak and a softer RAC compared to the sound that the band would play later. This is perhaps the least known Biely Odpor album so in 2000 Conqueror Records remastered and reissued this album. I have that CD and include the lyrics in Slovak and English in a simple booklet of four pages. It is weird because Biely Odpor never sang in English but was concerned to translate to this language the titles or lyrics of their songs, in a clear gesture to try to reach to as many people as possible.

His second album is also from 1996 and the title was 'Vítazstvo alebo smrt’ (Victory or Death). A CD with nine themes with brilliant sound of what they called ' Hudba tvojho svedomia ', ie 'the music of your conscience' ... the white rock and roll. This is how they define their music on the second song of this CD. This album is superb in the musical aspect as this quintet could play their instruments very well but their lyrics were also to highlight ... 'To je pre Teba' is a song that tells the revenge after the death of a friend in a bus, in a fast paced song with several changes of rhythm. ‘Mestá v ich rukách’ has great music and describe the city at nightfall. Here you will also find the song 'Zlodej mysle' about we talk some lines above. All the songs are remarkable and the albums ends with a magnificent five-minute ballad 'Zlý sen'', an apocalyptic vision of where the world is going. The booklet was a simple eight-page booklet with lyrics translated into English and a photo of the band. I remember that this was the second CD I bought from a Slovak band.

Unfortunately we had to wait three years to listen again a recording from Biely Odpor, with their album 'Slobodyan sen' ('Dream of Freedom') their last CD with original songs. This CD released in 1999 had eleven songs in the style of the band. This album is top class and the lyrical touches all the subjects, for first time talking about ZOG in 'Posol Slobody'', appealing for unity in 'Navzdy Spolu' (a bright song) where they sing a chorus in English for first time; remembering the fallen, in 'Cesta, ktorou íst', but their first two songs are great, 'Vstante' and 'Genocída'. The booklet is very good, with the lyrics both in Slovak and English without photos. But the history of the NS skins scene in Slovakia and in Czech Republic, reminds us that everything good finally ends and Biely Odpor also disappeared but after publishing an album that compiled their best songs: ‘The best of Biely Odpor’, a great compilation with the nineteen most representative songs from the band, and this time edited by VRE Records. The band members remained on the scene. Today Ondrej Durica, Biely Odpor singer, continues his solo career with the release of a new compact 'Zdvihnuty prst'.

Brief report from French ISD Memorial


The gig took place near by Marseille on the 8th October. Around 150 people attended the gig, not a big number for French standards, but on the same they there were big nationalist demonstration in Lille (video HERE) , organized by “Batskin” and many comrades went there. Gig started around 21.30 h with a couple of acoustic ballads by Brutal Attack, which were on the usual top level with the very passionate singing of Ken and magic fingers of Michel on the guitar.


Ken The Men

First for the electric part of the gig were Italians from Legittima Offesa. They played mostly their own songs, as well as cover of Skrewdriver classic “I don’t like you”. Band was warmly accepted by the fans, after the last year their countryman from Still Burnin’ Youth did an excellent gig in France. It was a good warming up for the crowd for the next band of the eve.

Legittima Ofessa

The RAC legends of Brutal Attack took the stage, this time in their full line up (with two Frenchman’s – members of Frakass), so the rocked the hall with their “evergreens” for more then an hour. It’s not a secret that Ken adores France and he’s always ready to do a gig here, and as you can guess the local supporters loves this amazing band.

Last of the schedule for the night were the local RAC heroes of Frakass. The gig ended around 01.30 h. without any troubles and presence by the cops.

Fehér Törvény Interview

 1. Hello guys, greetings from NS Revolt webzine. Please introduce your band’s history in few words (line up, discography, etc.)?

- First of all, it's an honour to us, to answer your questions for your webzine! We formed Fehér Törvény in 1995 with few of my friends. This line-up was active till 1998. Then, we made other projects. I began to deal with Fehér Törvény again after 4 years. This time I have moved to another city, and I didn't have any contacts, so the first few steps were really hard. We had many changes among our musicians, but in the past 6 years Rocker-drums, Zozó-guitar, Maci-singer formation was fixed! We had Tango-guitar for 2 years with us, and Stevie-bass joined us half year ago, so the machine works excellent!


Fehér Törvény


2. What is the band present music style? Did you change it a bit thru the years?

- Our music style was Oi/RAC at the beginning. When we started again, it was an Oi/HC/RAC mixture, we made with our split with Brigade M and our album “Vér kötelez” in these styles. Nowadays, we are between somewhere HC and thrash metal. The “Szemben a világgal” album, what came out in 2009, contains a lot of thrash elements, and some hardcore too. We made a lot of new songs since then, where is more of the hardcore style, and less thrash metal. It seems a little bit complicated, but if you want to know the truth, you should visit one of our concerts :)

3. You have played in Bulgaria back in 2008. What are your memories from this event?

- This was an awesome gig, we will always remember it! The organizers invited a lot of excellent bands: Agreese 95 (Cz), Project Vandal ( SK ), Voice of Justice ( H ), and Fehér Törvény ( H ). Unfortunately, most of the bands called of their participation to that night, but the Bulgarian guys didn't give up! They said, we can start our trip, everything will be fine. The local activists in Plovdiv are cool guys, and those too, who have came from other cities so far! The local youth in Plovdiv have an own club (Skinhouse Plovdiv), the gig of course held here. The guys at the concert were really inspired, they knew our songs, and we felt that our message has a great value for them! They made a fuckin’ good rampage in front of the stage! :)


Live in Bulgaria
4. Lots of people across Europe like your music a lot, but the lyrics are understandable only for the Hungarian audience. Is there any chance in the future to hear Fehér Törvény singing in English?

- First of all, we want to show a way to the Hungarian youth in this filthy fuckin’ world, but as the time goes by, many activists liked our music from other countries, so we planned that we will have songs with English lyrics. You will hear some of these in our next CD! Unfortunately, we can't write good English lyrics, so we turned to our friends for help. I want to thanks for the help here to Robert (Zittau)!

5. Provide us with some information about the story of BHS crew and also about the label BHS Service?

 The BHS Crew was founded in the 4th May of 1997. This is a circle of friends, with less members, but the guys with us we have a real togetherness! They doing many things: newsletters, managing webpages, doing works for zines, musicians, record-shops, sport, so I can say these guys doing a lot of good to the NS scene! The first production of BHS Service was made in 1999, what followed many more! The first of them was a radio cassette, after then we produced CD-s, and vinyl’s. We sent free monthly newsletter, these were great help in the movement's life before the spreading of the internet. We celebrated the 10th birthday of the BHS Service in 2009, a 2 days festival, with those bands, who helped our work.




6. What is the current situation in Hungary in the Nationalist movement? There are a lot of different organizations, but are they united in their activities? Why there are no so many gigs like in previous few years.

- Unfortunately, the nationalist organizations cannot work together yet. We have many organizations, and many activists, but we still missing a leader! If you think, that we don't have concerts as many as were the last year, you don't follow the news properly :) In the last Saturday we had 5 (!!!) concerts throughout the country!

7. You play very often both in Hungary and abroad. Do you have any funny story or anecdote from your numerous gigs?

- Many of our good friends and many good activists organizing concerts in Hungary and Europe nowadays, and they often invite us to play. I could tell a lot of stories form the past year's gigs, if you were speak Hungarian, I think it wouldn't end in a couple of days, I could tell a newer and newer story to you :) First of all I remember a concert in Nederland in 2007, where I was jumping on the stage, and its suddenly collapsed under me, haha :) In 2007 too, we were playing in Belgium, when we where the first band on a great festival! We had to start at 18:00 in the evening, and I thought nobody will be there this early.....I was totally wrong. Nearly 800-1000 comrades were waiting for us to start, and all of them liked our music! After our second song I had a feeling, like that we are playing for Hungarian fans: hundreds of Italian, Czech and German comrades shouted at the same time: KITARTÁS! And it was continuous, until the end of our concert!

Clockwork Torveny in Skinhouse Plovdiv
8. Did any of your members play in other bands too?

- All members had other bands, and now they play in other bands too, but I hope Fehér Törvény is important to everyone in the team! Zozó's bands now: Backstab, Gungnír, Heldentod, Dög / Rocker's bands: TarsOI/ Stevie has an sXe metalcore band, but I forgot their name/ Tango: Utolsó Védvonal, TarsOI, TUS/ Maci is working on an sXe band!

9. What are interested in apart from music – sports, hobbies, tattoos, books?

- Of course, all of them are a part of my life. Unfortunately, I don't have time for sports, and I don't have money for tattoos now, however I have newer and newer plans! I like books and fanzines, I more prefer these ways of news than spreading them on the internet. I started to work on my own skinhead fanzine in 1993, since then, I help working in many others, now I'm writing to the fanzine “Magyar Hang”. I was reading many books when I was young, but now I don't have time for them, but I hope I'll have years, when I can read all of those books I bought in the past few years!

10. What would you advice to someone who has just about to start a nationalist band? Is there any secret to keep a band like your active for more then 15 years?

- I think, someone who started playing recently, train himself/herself, and when he found out he /she have the talent for it, he/she should practice more and more! We can only make successful propaganda, if our music is pleasing to all of those people, who are not in our movement yet! It's a great feeling, when we can make achievements with this way, and many activists will have this success in our scene! I don't know what's making a band working through many years, but I know, Fehér Törvény is like my child, I care about it a lot! It will be adult in 2 years time, haha :)

Live in Italy
11. As far as I know your newest CD should be out soon. Tell us some info in advance about it… time for free of charge advert :)

- It's really hard to get it straight. Last years spring we talked it over with a record in New Zealand, but a year has passed, and nothing happened, just changing some emails....We almost finished our studio works, so the time has nearly come to give our new CD out. In the past few days, we talked with one of our German comrades, who likes our music, and he want to release it. I hope this will be the “final option”, and our new CD is coming out in this year!

12. Thanks for you time. Final words are yours.

- Thank you for the opportunity! My message is to your readers is: “Come to Hungary, you can see many beautiful sights! If you can, come to a good gig, nowadays we have more than one in every weekend, so just came when you can! I hope we will return to Bulgaria someday, like the barbarians (haha) !

Merv Shields Interview

Interview conducted live on 2nd of October 2011 by Jäsä Ainaskin.

AINASKIN: Hello Merv, could you tell us how did you end playing bass for Skrewdriver ?

MERV: Basically I came to London as a Punk in 1983 but I had embraced the Skinhead culture since 1979 so with my Protestant work ethic I decided to seek work and it was easier to dress smart in order to substantiate this.



I knew Adolf through Pubs and Gigs and he got me a job working with him humping antique furniture at a shop in Islington. I happened to mention to him that I had previously played bass in a punk band and when Adam Douglas left he mentioned my name.

I'd already seen the band a few times, embraced their politics and liked their music. So Ian suggested I come down to Marks for an audition, played along to a few songs and was asked to join.

I joined the band around September/October 1986. Adam Douglas had just left but I remember him coming over from Orange in France where he was serving with the Foreign Legion. Paul was still on the scene but had turned Biker. My initial recruitment was held at Mark Sutherlands house/rehearsal studio in Bow, East London where he commented that my Eros Mark 2 Bass sounded like a wet fart.

I was then supplied with a Fender Mustang Bass with a short neck which had allegedly been stolen by Sid and Nancy from a rehearsal room in North London. I rejected this as i was 6'tall and did'nt equate to playing a short neck bass...

AINASKIN: When did you first play live with Skrewdriver?

MERV: First Gig, East Croydon, Railway-Mans Social Club, November/December 1986 .Mark Sutherland on Drums .Swainy on Guitar .Me on Bass. Pre Ian Guitar on vocals. 4-Piece Line-Up.



AINASKIN: Care to comment anything on your Skrewdriver recording sessions?

MERV: First album I (allegedly) played on was White Rider. I was the Paul Simenon of the band so any initial imput would have probably been overdubbed by Mark.

I played my first summer festival in 1987 by which stage Martin Cross was recruited as Lead Guitar but I remember Swainy playing there as his last gig. He lived in Hatfield which was a big Red Action area and he was always paranoid about getting sussed. Basically in all honesty I was more useful to Ian as a front Man live, due to my technical in-experience in the studio. I had no problems with that as I would rather leave all the Muso stuff to Ian and Mark.

Around about early 1987 Martin Cross came on board. He was a shit hot guitarist and what impressed me about him was the fact he was very melodic and competent. In both our cases we were recruited by word of mouth due to the nature of our music. Ross McGarry was later recruited on this basis but the common denominator to all this was a guy called Adolf (Alan Pond). He suggested me and Ross but Martin came from elswhere which led to an air of suspision. Martin was an old skin from 1977-78 but due to our close-knit affinity he was always an outsider. Martin and I joined around the same time. Then John Burnley who we all knew before and got on with. Initially I gelled with Martin as we both came on board more or less together but he did have a reputation for violence as I found out to my cost later on. John was basically a casual/football thug who carried a blade and wasn't afraid to use it but him and I got on like brothers as he was basically a really nice bloke. But with Martin, although we had similar points of view politically regarding Ulster I found he could freak out at a moments notice. Even Ian was cautious of him and tried to keep him at a distance.



AINASKIN: How and what made you to quit on Skrewdriver ?

MERV: Forgetting any conspiracy theories. Man to Man Jäsä, and avoiding any rhetoric. I left the band in September 1989.

Ian had moved the Skrewdriver concept up to Derbyshire which I agree whole-heartedly with because of all the hassle he was getting in London. But the core fan-base was always in London and the home counties and a lot of true believers thought that this was a cop out.

Also John, Ross and I were still based in London as were most of the Security. Gigs started being staged in Derbyshire, Nottingham shire etc...

And as most of us were working and gigs up north tended to be mid-week it took a toll on taking a Wednesday off plus a Thursday to recover.

So 2 days off a week on a low income. Rehearsals were stilll being held in London once a week but at the time I had a child on the way and decided to inform Ian that i would honour any forthcoming gigs for the next 6 months but feasibility in playing outside London was not an option I was prepared to commit to.

AINASKIN: And what about nowadays, do you still follow the music scene, attend concerts etc...?

MERV: I do occasionally. In respect of royalties. No. From my inception in the band I done through love. I never made or expected any revenue from the band. To me it was an experience I was gifted and I was privileged and honoured to be part of something. Finished up in 1989. Nearly 49 years old now. My politics have mellowed but I still adhere to the legacy of the band. Still going out to Punk/Skin gigs in Belfast and will ALWAYS love this music until I die......REGRETS......None whatsoever...

Jäsä ... I've had 2 serious relationships in my life. Both KAPUT, 2 sons, 22 and 20. Don't speak to me. No Car. Mortgage. Live in rented accomodation alone. Would I change my life........NO CHANCE........Would i do it all over again. ..DEFINITELY.....!!!



AINASKIN: Thank you for this chat session Merv, any last words?

MERV: Mate. I've had a few personal issues over the last year so apololgies for not keping in touch. Nothing personal Mate. Last Words...?????...Johnny Cash thought he had a hard life. LOL
