New Releases

Got the latest batch of HG Fact releases.  First up is the Himei 7", reissue of their first self-released ep, now on split red/yellow splatter vinyl.  Bit reminiscent of the Stalin.  Next is the Zone CD/DVD.  Compiling their early 7"s and compilation tracks, I prefer the slightly rawer sound of this to their LP.  The DVD has live material from throughout the years.  Very nice package.  I've seen them twice, killer band, and I guess I was lucky because they have only played Tokyo a few times ever.  Burly, anthemic hardcore, the type I love.  Restocked the amazing Paintbox DVD.  Got a few Kriegshog discography CDs and already only have two left.  Compiles their demo, 7", both splits, LP and mystery bonus track, full booklet, great sound so you can hear all the distorted noise in crystal clarity.  Honestly really good, and I'm not really one for "raw lo fi D beat".  Kriegshog were many notches above that sort.  Playing their last show at Chaos In Tejas with a special guest second guitarist, Souichi from Forward.  And last but not least, the new Warhead single (front and back cover pictured).  Two noisy thrashers with guest guitarist Jacky from Framtid filling in.  Crucial as always.

Recent video of Warhead playing at the Studio Dom rehearsal space in Kouenji.  I can't even imagine what it would be like to see them in a tiny room like this.
