Time for an update we reckon...its been a while since the last one and we've got a bit to catch up on.
First of all we've got a slew of old and new releases either on their way to or in the store now. Below we'll endeavour to try and give you a bit of info about them.
Thanks to French label "Kick Rock" (excellent naming your label after a Poison Arts album, right?) we have some copies of their two new releases incoming; the first ever vinyl pressing of the Yoshihiro Hiraoka & Human Arts LP from 1992 which if you're not aware is basically a continuation of Poison Arts but with Chelsea (Paintbox, Death Side, Execute etc) playing Guitar instead of Aki then joined by Eiji from ME♀SS on drums and Minoru (Lip Cream, The Comes etc) on bass.
If you've heard any of the prior "Poison Arts" material you'll know just what to expect. Blazing metallic edge hardcore with lots of melodies and vocals that straddle the line between glam rock and manic nut job.
Secondly KICK ROCK have also taken up arms to do a European LP pressing of the SKIZOPHRENIA(JPN) "Single Ticket To Demolition" compilation of all their collective songs to date, with excellent artwork by Yeap of Kromosom / Pisschrist.
Many people will remember Skizophrenia from their split 7" with Texas punks VAASKA.
We're also expecting a few new titles in from F.O.A.D. out of Italy including the incredible and now already very limited LP pressing of the NAPALM (JPN) discography and the quite well revered Italian Punk HC documentary put together by LoveHate80 covering all the "glory years" of the Italian HC scene from 1980-1989. Plus in the tradition of F.O.A.D. more unearthed metal from Mutilator (Pre-Sarcofago), Majesty (Pre-Nausea & Terrorizer), Poison (German 80's death-thrash) and Terrorizer (Double LP of demo's and live material).
What's that...we've got EVEN more stuff inbound from Europe?! Including the 25 year anniversary pressing of Japan's, Kyoto HC killers WARHEAD's "Cry Of Truth" EP and the amazing ZERO - S/T LP a bunch of US punks doing a really well done tip of the hat to later-era Death Side and other "Burning Spirits" HC bands.
