Review: Hiretsukan

(The G7 Welcoming Committee)

Jaw-dropping, melodic noisecore. Loud, fast and abrasive, the first of these 7 songs starts off with discordant guitars dragging through their progressions. Almost at once the chaotic throat-searing vocals explode, alongside the drums and bass, into sixteen stunning minutes of intense, politically charged hardcore with an aggressive, unstoppable tempo. Recorded by NY legend Don Fury, this masterpiece of emotion, power and aggression is going to grab fans by the throat and drag them kicking and screaming into the future. Bands like this are the reason hardcore will never die.
