RECORD REVIEWS:

Pavilionul 32 - supunere? niciodata! (trad. obedience? never!) CD  (english language)
 
"[...] This band is from Timisoara, Romania, and plays fast hc punk with powerviolence hints here and there. [...] Anyway, this band delivers 21 songs including an intro and an outro, with lyrics dealing with everyday problems in an anarchist and antiauthoritarian outlook; the general feel is that the cd is a bit too long, but obviously the more music you can fit on it allows you to not waste space and plastic (i hate bands recording cd's that lasts only 8 minutes like a 7 inch; why don't you make a fucking tape?). Their music is fast, powerful and straight-to-the point; sometimes they remind me of older FxPxOx from Macedonia. if you want to play in Romania contact them, they are great people and very hospitable."

Pavilionul 32 - resisting the insanity of a fucked up system - cd 2007 (spanish language)
 
"Rumania para mi era un país que nunca había pensado que podría tener escena alguna, sin embargo, hace tres meses mas o menos me pille este cd de esta banda que existe desde el verano de 2004, y bueno, es una banda que ha girado a mazo por toda Europa, y este cd fue editado solo para la gira del 2006, pero a parte de este cd tienen diversos materiales editados, la banda está plenamente integrada en el diy incluso tienen su propio sello, y el estilo es hardcore rápido.... casi diria crust anarcopunk, con voces que gritan..... scream, puede ser... pero sin llegar a la brutalidad, a mi me han gustado, primero como curiosidad por saber lo que se cuece en Rumania.... y luego por el estilo.... dales una oída..."

Pavilionul 32 - prima linie - cd 2006 (french language)
 "Ce disque a été vendu lors de la récente tournée européenne de ce sympathique groupe Roumain. Ceux et celles qui ont eu la chance de les voir (notament lors de leur excellent concert à St Etienne) savent de quoi il retourne, pour les autres, on dira que c'est du fastcore chanté en roumain, aux titres courts et incisifs. Ce disque reprend leur première démo agrémentée de trois nouveaux morceaux. Le boitier est chouette, le packaging interieur minimal (textes et traduction). En route pour un premier album!" (M)

CONCERT REVIEWS:

Pavilionul 32 + FUK (uk), Leisure Time (cz)  
(czech language + english translation)
 Po odklizení aparátu předešlé kapely se na pódiu objevuje blondýna (?) ladící kytaru, za bicími typicky "rumunský boy", dredatý basák a rtuťovitý zpěvák a frontman v jedné osobě. Následuje kraťoučká zvukovka a už se na posluchače valí smršť rumunského politicko-sociálního fast core v podobě PAVILIONUL 32. Hodně rychlá muzika, kde si nikdo nehraje na melodii či hlídání rytmu. Zpěvák si užívá kompletní set pod pódiem a patří mu celá šíře klubu. Bubeník je někdy natolik rychlý, že předbíhá kytary. Občas se jakýmsi hrdelním řevem přidává kytaristka. A publikum se skoro až nechápavě usmívá. Ačkoli je zde několik nefalšovaných punks, s nikým tahle muzika nehne. Žádný tanec, žádné pogo. Mezi songy se frontman snaží komunikovat s publikem hůře srozumitelnou angličtinou. Představuje pohled kapely na svět, posílá "kamsi" všechny policajty světa a s nimi i veškeré "naczi". Pokračují nespočtem skladeb o stopáži kolem jedné minuty. Při odchodu žádné ovace, jen vlažný potlesk.
translation:
After removing the equipement of previous band is on stage arriving a blonde (?) [note: original 
text spells "blondyna"... :-],Tuning the guitar, at the drums typical "Romanian boy," 
dreadlock bassist and red vocalist and front man in one person. The following is short sound check and to the audience is rolling thunder of Romanian political and social fastcore by PAVILIONUL 32 A lot of fast music, where no one try to play the melody or rhythm. The singer is enjoying a complete set under the stage and he owns the complete size of the club. The drummer is sometimes so fast that precedes the guitar. Sometimes the guitarist joins with some throat something. And the audience is almost giving a smile back. Although there are several real punks, nobody is gonna move. No dancing, no pogo. Among the songs the lead singer is trying to communicate with the audience with hard to understand English. .represents a view of the world and sends "somewhere" all cops of the world and with them all "naczi". They go on countless piece about one minute long. While leaving .. no cheers, only calm applause. - translation by anonymous czech boy.

Pavilionul 32 + Satan Klaus Fest Bucuresti (romanian language)
article in Jurnalul National newspaper by Alex Revenco

Pavilionul 32 + Kalashnikov Collective (italy), Vise Od Milimetra (serbia)  (italian language)

"[...] Inizia il concerto! I Pavilionul 32 suonano un h.c. vecchia scuola, incazzatissimo. Tavi arringa la folla (15 persone) con interminabili invettive in rumeno tra un pezzo e l’altro. In particolare, capiamo che ce l'ha con la dogana serbo-rumena.

Solo alla fine degli anni ’90 si può collocare la nascita di una vera e propria scena punk/d.i.y. in Romania, che ebbe (e tutt’ora ha) il suo fulcro a Timisoara, la città più collegata all’Europa occidentale, sia per ragioni culturali, che per banali motivi geografici. Attualmente la più importante punk/hc band rumena, punto di riferimento anche per le bands in tour sono i già citati Pavilionul 32 di Tavi, band molto politicizzata attiva dal 2004 e proveniente proprio da Timisoara. Il nome della band si riferisce al padiglione numero 32 dell’ospedale psichiatrico di Timisoara, dove vengono trattati i pazienti più gravi. Qui sotto, trovate il loro primo album intitolato "Camasa de forta" (camicia di forza) del 2005: h.c. caotico ai limiti del grind, pieno di rabbia ed incrollabile convinzione… [...]"

Pavilionul 32 + Skarpretter (danemark), Final Approach (slovenia), Mladina Kina (slovenia)
(english language)

"[...] We drove into Romania without any border trouble, and headed for the town of Deta, where we met up with the Pavilionul 32 crew. 

Pavilionul 32 plays awesome hardcore punk, and won our eternal respect when we met them for the first time a few years ago in Leipzig, Germany. Their van had broken down on them a few days into their tour, but instead of quitting, they grabbed the most important bits of the backline and hitchhiked around for the remaining dates of their tour! That’s fuckin’ punk if you ask me. 

The gig was in the basement of a pub, and the owner of the place had been called up continuously the past week by the local cops who wanted to know why there was all these smashed up cop cars on the concert poster, and what kind of people we where anyway? Hmmm; the kind of people that prefer smashed cop cars to working ones?

PAVILIONUL blasted away a great show and had the whole room shouting and jumping, which was really cool. In my opinion this was the best band we played with on the tour.[...]"

Pavilionul 32 + Bane (usa), To Kill (italy) (romanian language)


 "[...] Club mic, oameni suficient de multi cat sa para ca e destula lume Daca nu am pierdut notiunea timpului pot sustine ca totul a inceput pe la 22:00-22:30 dupa lungi asteptari atat din partea noastra cat si din partea celor de la To Kill. E dezarmant pentru o trupa sa condca ore in sir din Budapesta in Cluj pe drumuri romanesti si sa stea cateva ore bune degeaba si sa astepte. Dar trecand peste toate acestea, a inceput si concertul.

Prima trupa: Pavilionul 32. De ei am mai auzit, nu i-am mai vazut niciodata. Stiam ca sunt ceva HC-Punk. Un cuvant cred ca ar spune tot: true. Oricum apreciez bunastarea si reactia pozitiva a publicului la showul lor. Mai multe despre ei gasiti pe pagina oficiala de myspace.

Pavilionul 32 + AK 47 (croatia) (english language)

 "[...] and here we are, back again with posting here and with new concert season, as well.. after all those summer festivals it's time to get back in reality and be satisfied with occasional „ordinary“ gigs.. this one was first such gig on which I was after some longer period.. the concert was held in the hall Jedinstvo..that was 1st time I was in there..nice space..

...after them band from Romania Pavilionul 32.. I have seen them before, at first Balkanika Core fest, 3 years ago, and was happy to see them again 'cause they are great band to me.. they play punk fastcore powerviolence with engaged anarchist lyrics.. 

this gig was one piece of puzzle of their euro tour on which they were playing, besides Croatia, in Austria, Slovenia, Germany, Serbia, Czech Republic and Romania.. they are quite active band with myriad gigs behind them and I will recommend them to you if you have chance to see them live!..

Pavilionul 32 + Magrudergrind (usa), Another Way (Hungary), Aku (romania) - Bucharest, Romania (hungarian language)

2007. június 19. Bukarest (Románia), Club Suburbia

"[...] Siettünk vissza a koncertre, amikor még csak az AKU kezdte el a zenebonát. Primkó hc / poén punkot nyomtak, aminek a szövegeiben rejlik a varázsa, egyébként egyáltalán nem volt rossz. A Pavilionul 32 énekese dobolgatott benne. Kb 7 percet játszottak, de poén volt.

Aztán a színpadra lépett a PAVILIONUL 32 , akik jófajta agresszív, dühös, politikus, aktivista hardcorepunkot nyomnak. Nekem nagyon tetszett, hiteles volt, már játszottak nálunk is, nem egyszer, meg az Aw - val is turnéztak tavaly. Legközelebb a Free festen láthatjuk a bandát. Most készítik az új lemezt, amit nyár végén meg is hallgathatunk. [...]"
