Varaus

I have been all about this one lately, The Tuomittu Elämään seven inch EP by Varaus from 1983. Varaus was one of the best Finnish hardcore bands there was. They sounded a bit like Discharge but with something more personal and somewhat depressing in their sound. Any Finnish readers want to translate the band's name or song titles? Että olla erittäin avulias, Kiittää Te.

Aesop, check the next link for translations of Finnish band names.
btw, Varaus means 'reserve' or 'reservation'.

I would like to hear a decent rip of their extremely rare 1-sided LP.

Varaus mean also "Charge", like for batteries, in one sense of the word. If you need translation help, I am glad to do it, just send me e-mail:
