RASHŌMON: Demo: 7”

Nov 22, 2017

This is a solid four-song demo from Washington D.C. speed hardcore outfit. The lyrics are in Japanese. Unless it means something I’m not aware of, the band name is a reference to the highly influential Akira Kurosawa film about several interpretations of one crime. The single is really only missing an obi-strip. I hate to be so obvious, but it’s solid choice for fans of Systematic Death or The Stalin. All four songs blaze at the solid pace of your favorite Japanese punk. It’s a solid single, especially for a demo. Blazing. –Billups Allen (Society Bleeds, facebook.com/societybleedsrecords)
