Dark and ferocious crust with a heavy '80s/'90s UK metallic crust influence. The band consists of the members of Frigöra, Asbestos, Macrofarge(!!) and Paintbox. Amazing sleeve artwork.

Amen "Feikki" 7" EP - Crash Mag, 1991, Finland, Fold-out sleeve, (Crash-2) - $3
Classic Finnish crust from the early '90s. One of the best examples of the '90s Scandi crust bands.

Asphyxia "Wardrugs" 7" EP - Crust War, 2002, Japan, Insert, (CRUST WAR-013) - $25
Early Osaka crusties circa 1991~1993, feat. the members of Gloom, Framtid, Condemned, Defiance and Despair. Their ultra-limited '92 demo tape put to vinyl. 7 blasting trax of insanely distorted noise-crust madness drillin' up your nuclear-addicted crusty ass!!

Assfort "Egoist Guidance" VHS - Flying High, 2001, Japan, Promo-only, (No Cat. #) - $3

Barigade (バリゲイド) "Dust Hero" 7" flexi - Joker, 1985, Japan, (JRR-003) - $140
Note: There's a small tear(approx. 1/4") on the sleeve and a very common, small minor dent on the flexi that does not affect playing. No skips.

Battle Of Disarm "Chaos City" Demo Tape - Japankore/D.I.Y., 1992, Japan, Fold-out sleeve, (Japankore #7/D.I.Y.-CA-003) - $9
B.O.D.'s first or second demo, originally released by D.I.Y. Records in '92 and the U.S. version on Japankore came out in '94, I think.

Battle Of Disarm ‎"Sons Of War!-Old Resistance Days" LP - MDC, 1997, Japan, 500 pressed, Portuguese release, Info insert, (MDC 003/97) - $48
This one's a bit harder to come by than most of the other B.O.D. releases as only 500 copies of this LP were made by a small Portuguese label and were poorly distributed at the time of its release back in '97. Mostly sold just in Japan and Portugal. This and their Yugoslavian released split LP with Brainstorm, which also was pressed in a small quantity, are probably the hardest to find B.O.D. records but it seems this LP is seen for sale less often than the other.

Battle Of Disarm ‎"Crust, Love And Peace" (Europe Tour 1997 Live In Slovenija) 10" - Malarie, 1997(?), Japan, (No Cat. #) - $15

The first record release by this Japanese crust band that's been putting out tons of records.

Blind Justice "The Way Of Keep Lives" 7" EP - HG Fact, 1995, Japan, 1000 pressed, Label catalog flyer, (HG-028) - $4
U.S. hardcore style. This band later became Envy, changed the music style, and got pretty big internationally, but Blind Justice was heavily inspired by NYHC that played much more straight-forward, simple and fast hardcore. The band was formed in '92 and this is their 1st EP after putting out a couple of demos. "Far East Hardcore" comp track

Cobra "Never Give Up" VHS - Public Red, 1989, Japan, NTSC, (PR-0001) - $20
Very rare, limited VHS-only release(never been reissued on DVD), containing the live video footage of their great '89 reunion show in Kyoto, before the band signed to a major label and got HUGE. Featuring their best ever line-up with Naoki(ex-orig. Cobra & Laughin' Nose, now plays in SA) and Pon(ex-Nashi & Laughin' Nose, now plays in L.N. again). This is such a killer live footage. Professionally recorded and packaged. Self released on the band's own Public Red label. You won't find this again.

Comes, The "No Side" LP - Dogma/City Rocker, 1983, Japan, Original, Textured sleeve, Insert, (DOG-2) - $135

Comes, The "No Outsider" (No Side + Outsider) LP - Hirohito Era Hardcore, 2009, Japan, Insert, (New/Unplayed), (HEHC-1) - $13

(Comes, The) Virgin Rocks "Shut Up!" 7" EP - Dear/Music Visions, 1986, Japan, (DEAR-002) - $25
The comes changed the name to Virgin Rocks several months after the "Power Never Die" 12" was released in March '86, on Captain/Dear Records. All the Virgin Rocks members except the drummer were the same as the "Power Never Die" recording lineup. The drummer was replaced to Tetsu M.(ex-Ghoul, and F.O.A.D. as well?) from Matsumura. Matsumura was an early drummer of The Comes until he left the band to join Gastunk in '84, which he left a year after joined back to play in The Comes again from '85 until '87. Around '90, he once again got together with Chitose to form The Wretched. Now..., by looking at the fact he was frantically(?) chasing Chitose's ass over the years, I suppose one can easily assume that he was actually far more interested in banging her than playing in the bands! Anyways, the music style played by Virgin Rocks is pretty much in the vein of The Comes from their "Power Never Die" era, powerful metal-punk with the obvious Plasmatics influences. Chitose was very much into Wendy O. Williams and Motörhead. But the late Comes and Virgin Rocks were way better than The Plasmatics! If you dig that metal-punk style they did on "Power Never Die" like I do, you probably will like Virgin Rocks as well. If that wasn't your cup of tea, well, then you won't like this EP.

Complain "Make A Mistake" 7" EP - 625 Thrashcore, 2002, Japan, (625-90) - $2
Old school goddamn HC from Sapporo, Japan. A horny review taken from the almighty 625 label info: When WxHxN played with these guys in Sapporo, I almost dropped a cum in my pants. Hardcore boner, yay! Young, fresh 'n' juicy kids, playing metallic, straight-forward Japanese HC... like the style of the old Selfish Records bands mixed with new school elements. They have great DIY ideals, are really nice people, and will crush you with how they execute Japanese hardcore boner.

Confuse "Old Master" CD - J.A.P./Crown, 1989, Japan, (JPD-410) - $58
Ultra-rare official CD from 1989. It was released on a major label(!) and for some unknown reason went out of print shortly after its release. Contains a COMPLETE, full version of the "Nuclear Addicts" 7" flexi('84, Blue Jug/Violent Party), with an outtake track "Merciless Game" from the same recording session that was omitted from the actual flexi release. Also included on this CD are the "Contempt For The Authority And Take Off The Lie" 7" EP('85, Confuse Rec.) and tracks off the "Jisatsu Omnibus" 8"('84, Jisatsu Label), as well as the mega-rare "Neo?" LP('88, Portrait Rec.) The "Neo?" LP is an obscure Kyushu punk/wave compilation on Portrait Records(a label ran by Shinya Oé of The Roosters!) that contains a Confuse track recorded in May 1988, a year before the "Stupid Life" tracks were recorded! Even just this "Neo?" comp material alone makes this CD something special. And, the sound quality and everything is excellent, too.

Crow "A Sacrifice For The Vicious Dominant And Bloodsheded Justice" 7" EP - Prank, 2005, Japan, 500 pressed for '06 US Tour, Clear red vinyl, (New/Unplayed), (PRANK-078) - $25

Delirium Tremens "Presagio De Muerte" 7" EP - La Vida Es Un Mus, 2008, Spain, Insert, (New/Unplayed), (MUS 20) - $4
Originally released as a demo tape in 1984. Ferociously out of control and raw, in-your-ass HC. Horny as fuck. From label info: "Rare Basque demo from 1984. 10 raging tracks of ugly hardcore punk similar to WRETCHED, RUIDO DE RABIA, EIZEN, TORTURA SISTEMATICA or early European bands of the play fast - no metal era. Totally unknown gem that remained literally unknown among Spanish Punk fanatics until a mere few years ago. Low-Fi recording of a raw abrasive sonic attack recorded in a bom-box. Not a friendly 80 reissue type but a sand-paper in the turntable one. WARNING. This recording sounds really RAW."

Demolition "Mob Of Wolves ~Estamos pandilla de lobos~" CD - E.A.S.T. Peace, 2005, Japan, Ltd to 738 copies, Obi, (EPCD-021) - $9
The U.S. vinyl reissue on a PDX-based label, Black Water in '07. This one here is the original Japanese edition which was originally a ltd. CD-only release in '05.

Desperate Children "Chaos/Fuck Day/I Love Punk" 7" flexi - Joy Riders, 1986, Japan, (No Cat. #) - $58
A bit less known but another great band from Kyushu(Nagasaki, where The S.C.U.M. is also from) that shouldn't be missed out. Not exactly in the "typical" noisecore style that the Kyushu punk bands from this era are most famous for, but still AWESOME noisy, loud, and chaotic hc/punk!!!! Self-released by the band in '86. Contains three tracks. The first two tracks on this flexi sound kinda noisecore-ish and the last song is in The Swankys vein. Would recommend this for those into The Swankys(early and late), Gai, Gess, The S.C.U.M., No Cut, Last Child, Chaos CH, Dust Noise, Expose, and the King's World and Violent Party related bands from the mid~late '80s. Listen to the songs here:

Dessert "World Of Fantasy" 7" EP - Ranch, 1998, Japan, 1000 pressed, Promo, Clear/pink mixed vinyl, Insert & flyer, (New/Unopened), (RANCH-01/SEL-ONE) - $25
The singer Ryuji used to be in the legendary bands Disarray and Bitousha in Sendai back in the '80s. He was also the singer for Mino-5, with Chelsea(Deathside/Paintbox) and Katsuta(Tetsu-Arrey/Extinct Government), and put out the CD on Selfish Records and appeared on the "Enjoy Your Youth..." comp LP. The guitarist and bassist were/are in Sekinin-Tenka, Bradbury(G-Zet), Idiot Idolaters, Laughin' Nose, The Pogo, Kenzi etc. As you can imagine from their background, these guys know what they're doing and you can expect some quality HC from Dessert. Very traditional sounding Japcore that's similar to the Burning Spirits styled bands ala Death Side, Judgement, Crude, Nightmare, Warhead or Forward. Awesome throaty vocals by Ryuji and that solid metallic guitar riffs. They did a great Disarray cover song on the CD version of this release. This 4-track EP is a totally raging, heavy-hitting HC smasher. The vinyl and the packaging look amazingly nice, too. Must have been quite costly to make these. It's on a clear vinyl with some clear pink mixed. Comes in a glossy perforated package/sleeve. It's an unopened, old stock promo copy. A "sample" sticker is on a blank spot on the back sleeve where the standard copies normally have a stamped serial number on.

169% original!! According to the release info stated in the "Raw Brutal Assault Vol.1" booklet, less than 100 copies of this 1st demo were ever made. The chances are you probably won't find another one in the future. I'd rather trade this gem than sell. See my updated want list. Trade preferred!!

Gai "1981-1985" Demo Tape - Violent Party, 1985('86?), Japan, Insert, (Violent Party No.?) - $75
Here's the original Gai tape on Violent Party, the real deal. "Violent Party" isn't actually indicated anywhere, but it is in fact the V.P. release, as stated in the zine review and the ad when the tape came out in the late '85 or early '86. The sleeve spine says "History Of GAI!". Compiles the 18 previously unreleased, various studio demo tracks dated from Nov. '81 to Sep. '85. This came out around the time "The Very Best Of Hero..." LP was released, shortly after Gai switched the name back to The Swankys.(The band originally started as The Swankys in '81, then had to change the name to Gai in May '83 due to being banned by the local venues.) This particular copy is complete with the original "Swankys History!" double-sided insert. I've had and sold another one of the same tape in the past, but with an insert appeared to be a photocopy. This one here is 100% original. Looks quite old and has some aging spots and discoloration. The cassette itself is the crappy "CVS/Echo" brand(manuf. by Echo Sonic, Japan), black cassette with a blue/white label on both sides. There are several different types of the blank tape used by Gai and the V.P. related bands for their tape releases, and this seems to be is one of the common ones. There's one song called "Yes!! Future" that's unlisted(the last track of Side B) in a track listing on the sleeve, but on the insert it is listed. Only 10 out of these 18 tracks from this tape were later officially rereleased as the "Total Control" CD by Anarchy Centre Records in '97, but oddly nearly half the tracks unincluded for some unknown reason. Weird.

Gaizi (害児) "Gakon-Fumetsu" (我魂不滅) 7" EP - Discrete, 1997, Japan, 500 pressed, (DIS-016) - $45
The title translates to "My Immortal Soul". Killer traditional Japcore with a Burning Spirits taste. Definitely one of the better bands in this style from the mid '90s era. For fans of Judgement, Bastard, Tetsu-Arrey, Death Side, Forward, Crude, Accomplice, Warhead etc.(Gaizi even did a song called "Burning Spirits" on their split EP with Gaki in '95!!) For some reason this EP very rarely pops up for sale.

Gas "The Day After" 7" flexi - Jisatsu Label (自殺レーベル), 1984, Japan, w/ "Why" fold-out newsletter insert, (GL-002ES) - $85
It's a super nice copy. Everything is in a great shape. The flexi and the label newsletter insert are in Mint condition like new. The sleeve has just a few very minor wears.

Gas "Sweet Emotion" 12" - Jisatsu Label (自殺レーベル), 1986, Japan, w/ label newsletter insert, (GL-007E) - $40

Gastunk "To Fans" 7" EP - Love, 1986, Japan, Orig. 1st press(gig freebie ver., never issued w/ insert) on clear purple vinyl, Printed clear outer sleeve, (SEX 69-004) - $20
This EP contains the killer, re-recorded(and faster!) version of their early classic tunes "Devil" and "Sex" from the 1st EP(Dogma, '85), and "Fastest Dream" from the "Dead Song" LP. This original issue on clear purple vinyl was given away free to their fans during the "Heartful Melody Four Island Tour '86", and the multi-colored splatter vinyl reissue(w/ 1-sheet insert/sleeve) was later sold at the selected record shops.

Gastunk "Gastunk Box 1983-1988" Box Set - Love, 1988, Japan, Ltd. to 1000 sets, Stamped & numbered hard carton box package(# 0696), (SEX69-1222) - $125

Gewalt "Osozaki Kuruizaki" (遅咲き狂い咲き) Picture 7" EP - Nippon Koukaku Ongen (日本硬核音源), 1995(?), Japan, Fold-out insert, Clear PVC sleeve, (New/Unplayed), (NKO-1) - $35
Here's a powerful 6-track smasher by Gewalt. An absolute, cock-exploding Japanese HC fistfuck in your face! No wimpy bullshit here. Like the band name says it all(Gewalt = violence, power, or force or something like that? in German), this is extremely heavy, juicy and fast, metallic Japcore style that's comparable to the Burning Spirits type of bands, but Gewalt played their songs much faster and heavier. The fucking evil-sounding, gruff vocals are sick. This self-released, nice little piece o' picture disc EP contains six blistering tunes of brutal hardcore ass-fucking. Think of a cross between the traditional Burning Spirits style HC mixed with good ol' metallic Japcore ala Ghoul, Rapes, Zouo, Demolition or Dilenma. This criminal motherfucker, Shura Fujimoto, the singer for Gewalt is a pretty well-known douchebag in the Kansai area HC scene. He's been associated with a bunch of other like-minded shady thugs from the area, like the dudes from Rapes, N*ghtmare, Warhe*d, Danse Ma*abre, SAAG(ex-Crusty Hi Ch*rge), R.O.M., Dil*nma and all that musically creative folks, despite their obvious, nasty criminal background.(Pitty to the innocent Osaka crusties getting viciously bullied(no shit!) by some of them(i.e. Shintani) back in the Final Noise Attack days. Amen! I think Shura even did the vocals for Danse Macabre a couple times when Cherry was still behind the bars for 9 years. Now since Cherry's out and free that he and Shura got together in their current band called S.H.I.(However, Shura just fucks around with some kinda weird noise sampling machine or some shit, and Cherry seems to be too busy coming up with ideas to cash in on more useless crap like the official Zouo cell phone cover a.k.a. piece o' plastic shit! And, sell 'em for like 30 bucks a piece?? WTF?! This guy needs a massive bukkake cumshot on his pretty hardcore face, boooooooo!) This is a brand new mint copy that's been forgotten and sitting in my record box for years. Everything looks spanking clean. God Save Sasha Grey.

Isolation "S/T" (a.k.a. "Love, Peace and Soya") 7" EP - Radical East, 1999, Japan, Orig. Japanese press w/ folded yellow sleeve & slick black insert, Label flyer, (RE-21) - $8
The Nagoya-based crust band consisted of the guitarist of Result, and the early Order member on vocals. This band is completely underrated and sadly overlooked. The music is some solid, crusty metallic HC with male/female dual vocals, in the vein of Nausea, Detestation, Reality Crisis, Antischism, Hiatus or Amebix. I bet these guys were hugely inspired by a lot of the '80s~'90s U.K. and U.S. anarcho hardcore/crust bands. The U.K. edition of this EP was also released, on Destroy Records. This one here is the harder to find, original Japanese pressing. It's really, really good, actually.

Isterismo ‎"Non Puo Sopprimere Il Mio Conflitto" 7" EP - Overthrow, 2008, Japan, Orig. 1st press of 500 copies w/ dark color sleeve, Insert, (OVERTHROW-044) - $40
The first pressings come with a dark brown sleeve. Only 500 copies of those were made in 2008 and sold out immediately after its release.(within a few days, I heard) The reissue/second pressings with a light tan colored sleeve were made in a larger quantity(don't know exactly how many) in May 2010.

Isterismo ‎"Non Puo Sopprimere Il Mio Conflitto" 7" EP - Overthrow, 2008, Japan, 2nd press w/ light tan color sleeve, Insert, (OVERTHROW-044) - $30

Jigoku-Manju (地獄まんじゅう) "Éki" (疫) 7" flexi - Hanaji Label (鼻血レーベル), 1991, Japan, 2nd edition w/ b&w sleeve, (Hanaji Label-001) - $55
Two versions of this flexi exist. The 1st edition comes with a color sleeve and the 2nd edition with a b&w sleeve. The 2nd edition is not a reissue or repress. Both editions are from the same pressing. Just when the band was out of the color sleeves, they added the b&w ones instead. Killer distorted noisecore chaos. They're on the great "Target Dictator" comp CD(w/ So What, Innocents, Disclaim etc.), put out by the Disclaim singer's label, Fight Men Records, in '91. The band also released a 7-track 3" CD that I haven't had a chance to hear. The CD was released by Crazy SKB(Kyoaku-Kyojindan)'s Satsugai-Enka Vinyl label. Listen to Jigoku-Manju here:

KGS "Cutcord And Destruction" 7" EP - Blood Sucker/Rebelabel, 1998, Japan, (BSR-024/REB-005) - $4
Rough and driving Japcore with an old school U.S. hardcore edge ala Black Flag or Circle Jerks. The 2nd EP from this lesser-known, Tokyo-based HC band featuring the guitarist T.T.(ex-Extinct Government & Forward), who currently plays in a new-ish band called Eiefits, with Minoru(Lip Cream, The Comes, E.Government etc.) and some other people nobody couldn't care less about. Don't know which guy, but I know one of the other members was in early RoseRose. KGS also did a split EP with a great band from Shizuoka called H,K,(ex-Deadless Muss & The Rustler, 2 tapes out on D.I.S.) on Blood Sucker Records earlier the same year.

Kuro (白) "S/T" CD - D.T.K.(Down To Kill), 1991, Japan, (DTK-0004) - $35
The official Kuro discography CD containing their 1st flexi, "Who The Helpless" 8", "Fire" 7" and the "1983 Gig" flexi. Rare original D.T.K. Records release from '91. Most of the D.T.K. CD's are quite hard to find. I still need the Cockney Cocks CD and The Comes CD myself. Anybody has them for trade? For your info, here's a list of the known D.T.K. releases: The Zolge "Russian Roulette" CD('90, DTK-001), The Zolge "Russian Roulette" ltd. 12"('90, DTKL-9001), Poison Arts "S/T" CD('90, DTK/SLICE-0002), Cockney Cocks "Night Of The Outrage" CD('90, DTK-0003), Kuro "S/T" CD('91, DTK-0004), V.A. "Slice Selection" CD('91, DTK/SLICE-0005, No DTK cat # stated), Genoa "What A Wonderful Life! Ha!!" CD('91, DTK-0007), The Comes "Power Never Die" CD('91, DTK-0008), and Poison + Poison Arts "生死即涅槃 煩悩即菩提" double CD('03, DTK-2001~2) The label was ran by a record shop called Edison, and Slice Records(Poison Arts' label) sort of became of part of D.T.K. Records since their '90 CD release. What's "DTK-006"???

Kyaah (Kyah) (キャ→) "Slapdash" 7" EP - AA, 1985, Japan, Glossy die-cut sleeve, Insert & sticker, (AA-011) - $38
Great 2nd EP by one of the most well known all-female punk bands in Japan. Their later releases sound poppier and aren't that exciting but the first two EP's are awesome! What you get on this EP is speedy and high-energy punk that's similar to the Nurse flexi, Typhus '80 demo(w/ female vox), or Chu-Doku flexi. Guest chorus by the members from Lip Cream, Bradbury(G-Zet), and Laughin' Nose. Kyaah used to play gigs often with Nurse, Gas and The Comes. The interesting thing is that when they changed the singer prior to this EP release, Chitose(The Comes) was gonna join the band however it never happened(too bad!). Complete copy with an insert and a red sticker which is actually part of the sleeve design.(a sticker appears thru the die-cut window)

L.S.D. "Lustmord, Snatch, Death'Ein Bodie = L.S.D." LP - Schizophreniac, 2006, Japan, Hand-numbered large insert(# 22/100), smaller insert & label poster, (Schiz. #27) - $13

Lancelot "Eat The Dream!" 7" flexi - Stomping, 1987, Japan, (SR-004) - $30
'80s Japcore from Sendai, on the mighty Stomping Records! Sounds a lot like the late '80s Selfish Records related bands.

Last Bomb "Firing" 7" EP - Powder, 1985, Japan, (POWDER RECORDS, E-01) - $58
Rare, self-released 1st EP with the original lineup including Loony(ex-Mohawks/Baws) on vocals, Cloudy(a.k.a. Kanon, ex-G.I.S.M./Front Guerrilla) on guitar, Bear Bomb(Final Bombs, ex-Ghoul) on bass, and Misa(ex-Kyaah/Rap/Geizz/Final Bombs) on drums. This is their only release with Loony on vocals. Their later releases, the "Retro Firing" EP('86) and the "S/T" 12"('87) on Selfish Records were recorded with the second singer Bondage, who later formed the great band called Grave New World, with the Crow singer and the Asbestos drummer in the early '90s, also played in Death Comes Along and I believe currently plays the guitar in the Crow singer's another band called Kaiboushitsu.(The Stalin & ADK inspired punk. Their LP is awesome, by the way! It's like their answer to The Stalin's "Mushi" album) After Bondage left Last Bomb, they changed the music style to much more in the vein of the late Discharge style metallic HC and also changed the name to Final Bombs in the late '80s, with Bear Bomb on vocals/bass, Misa on drums, and a new guitarist named Yabu.

Lenasix-Up "The Peler Inage Of Seventh Mirror" 7" flexi - KPP, 1986, Japan, (KPP-005) - $20
This was Sugi(from Kuro)'s another band. Obscure darkwave/goth band with female vox. Released on Kuro's KPP Records.

Mess "Get Into A Mess" 7" flexi - King's World, 1986, Japan, (K.K002MA) - $20
Unlike many other Kyushu based bands from the mid '80s played noisecore and more chaotic sounding HC, Mess(in their early days) played some really good, rough and straight-forward, in-your-face HC that reminds me of the "Fuck Heads" era, early Gauze. That's what they sound like on this 1st flexi. They later moved to Tokyo in the late '80s and put out the 8" EP and also appeared on the "Get Back The Discharged Arrow" comp LP(w/ Acid, Crück & Mad Conflux) on Selfish Records in '89. Can't remember what they sounded like on those two releases but I think they were in more like typical, traditional Japcore style. They later changed their music style and released the full-length CD on Selfish Records in '91 and the LP on Bloodsucker Records in '99. Those two are in a quite different style than their earlier releases. This band is probably more known for the 8" EP and the comp LP tracks, but I think this flexi is much better. All the songs on this flexi are speedy and somewhat primitive, yet powerful. It's one of the earliest King's World Records releases.
