Japanese hardcore/punk rules. Thats all there is to it. It seems that with almost whatever they do, the Japanese are always one step ahead with craziness, and hence generally rule more than their overseas counterparts that they are (often) emulating. This compilation contains some of the most ruling bands from the 80s Jap hc/punk scene. GISM needs no introduction, anyone that is in any way familiar with the Jap scene should worship these maniacs. Zouo is another of my favourites, the tracks here are really good as well, up there with the awesomeness of "The Final Agony" EP. The rest of the bands are great too, basically this comp just rules so get it.
