GAIZIN - Gaizin EP 7"
Temporarily Out of Stock
"SPEED AND NOISE! The rallying cry of this hardcore band from Sapporo Japan who existed from 1985 to 1988. Gaizin brought forth a unique sound which could only have come out of the mid to late 80's Japanese hardcore scene. Influenced by the trademark raw and abrasive sound of the early wave of Japanese hardcore bands like Gai and Confuse, excellent bands from their hometown like Tranquilizer, G-Gas, and Napalm, but also the current wave of UK thrash bands like Heresy and Ripcord who along with so many of their countrymen were both turning up the speed on hardcore. This 7" serves as an excellent document of the band's history compiling the best tracks from their extremely scarce tape releases, as well as unreleased studio tracks. 330 copies pressed on black vinyl with 80's Japanese style fold out EP jacket." - GENERAL SPEECH
