RAISE CAIN - Return To Many Shocks and Panic 7'' EP '89

RAISE CAIN - Ground Zero Demo '86
More Japancore, this time I present you with RAISE CAIN. This is their first 7" EP from 1989 released by the German label Amok Records.
Raise Cain also appears on Hilt to Hilt-Yokohama City Hardcore 7" EP and on the classic compilation Eye of The Thrash Guerilla LP. They have another 7" on Sound Pollution Records called Bootleg (to be posted in the future).
As a bonus I'm including their demo from 1986 which is a fucking great recording, it could easily be released as a 7" EP.

Another MCR release. This time Nightmare from Japan versus Concrete Sox from England.
Nightmare play typical Japanese Osaka thrashcore ala S.O.B. They've been putting great records out since their first amazing 7" EP from 1988 on Selfish Records, until now when they're still touring.
Concrete Sox formed 1984 at the heart of what seemed to be an explosion of hardcore and metal music, Nottingham and also part of Derby. They were one of the earliest hybrid metal/hardcore bands to come out of the UK as well as arguably one of the earliest examples of a hardcore band leaning towards metal music (this is typically referred to as "crossover thrash" nowadays) who had an animal and politically conscious message in their music.
This 7" split EP also coincided with the Concrete Sox Japanese tour in 1992.

01 - Annihilation - NIGHTMARE
02 - Find Your Way - NIGHTMARE
03 - 悲劇 (Tragedy) - NIGHTMARE
04 - Extremely Hardcore - CONCRETE SOX
05 - City Slave - CONCRETE SOX

Toxic Noise + Damnable Excite Zombies! Split 7" EP '93

Kick Out The Real Pain is the name of this 7" split EP released at the end of 1993 by the almighty Japanese label MCR Company.
These two Japanese bands play fast, tight and chaotic Japancore that may leave you listen to them over and over for some time.
D.E.Z. previously got a split flexi 7" EP on MCR Company with the Finnish AMEN and a full 7" EP called Suck Your Soul on the German label Amok Records and distributed in Japan by MCR Company. They also contributed in two compilations: Under The Cloudy Sky 7" EP and Fucking Noise Terror CD. There is a demo from the same set of this 7" EP with 8 songs.
TOXIC NOISE has a weird demo from 1992 called Hell Night, a flexi 7" EP split with SHOKA FRYO (to be posted in the future), a song on the classic V.A. BLLLEEEEAAAUUURRRRGGHHH!- Son of bllleeeeaaauuurrrrgghhh!! 7" EP. Let me know if they have anything else.DOWNLOAD:
