GŪTARA KYŌ: Self-titled: 10”

Maxed-out trash punk from Kobe, Japan. With hardcore-like speeds and a tendency for vocals that sound like they’re being screamed while writhing around on the ground, Gūtara Kyō do quite the job of making a racket yet never losing the structure of the song. The execution of Bad Brains filtered through the fidelity of Teengenerate. If you’ve been looking for a reason to smash all your personal belongings and set them afire in your front yard, put this record on. –Daryl (Slovenly / Mondo Mongo)
