VIVISICK: Punks Were Made Before Sounds: 7”

Oct 29, 2001

I love how the Japanese interpret the English language. When it gets translated it comes out all screwy. Besides that, this is a releases that you can count on. I have a strong belief that most Japanese bands practice more before they go into the studio. Everything is so tight even though they are trying to play sloppy. This bands hails from Tokyo, Japan and deliver eight fierce and heart-stopping tunes that is unrelenting in their attack. They mix it up but don’t slow down to keep the energy alive. Comparisons can be made from the large list of influential bands from Japan that were around in the ‘80s and ‘90s. This release and band can stand on their own here. If speed is in your blood and you are a fan of Japanese thrash, this is another item for your consumption. Someone slap me. I’ve been knocked out cold by this.
