  ネメシス (NEMESIS) • 暁鐘 (Gyou-Shou) 7" EP [RAT-011]

RAT-011

CLICK HERE TO ORDER.
Limited edition on white vinyl while supplies last (only one copy per customer.)

Introducing the 2nd E.P. from the voice of a new generation of Kyushu hardcore punk. This 4 track record attempts to capture the destructive live energy that has forced Japan to turn its head and take notice. On this new E.P., you can expect the same style of catchy, powerful songwriting built from burly bass riffs, intense pounding drums, piercing guitars and desperate shouts from the throat. This is pure, Japanese hardcore in the Selfish/Bloodsucker tradition. Includes English translation and download.

2nd pressing: 300 copies on clear gold vinyl.


Here's a review from the Sorry State catalog:
"Another ripper from France... these guys have a pretty original style that combines INEPSY-style Motörpunk, scorching leads a la Japanese hardcore, and vocals that are a little more metal and raspy than most bands who place this style. The result is something like the last SKITKIDS LP but with the vocalist from SODOM... these guys are getting a lot of hype right now, and I can see why because this 4-songer is a fucking ripper.

  HEIMAT LOS • La Seconde Nécessaire 1983-1988 2xCD [RAT-006]

CLICK HERE TO ORDER!

Long overdue complete and official discography by the first and best 80's French hardcore band HEIMAT-LOS. A DOUBLE CD set complete with 24 page booklet featuring extensive liner notes in several languages, lyrics, pictures, flyers, etc. 90 songs including all vinyl releases, comp tracks, demos, and tons of extra live material.

 

REVIEWS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES:

"I try not to make an habit of shitting my pants, but this double CD album makes me do it every time. As the first band to ever play fast and extreme hardcore in France, HEIMAT-LOS are arguably the best and most influential punk band of the '80s to ever blast out of that country. [...] The music is thrashy and brutal, melodic and intricate, blazing and slightly insane but always skillfully played. [...] An absolute essential. 'Tis a beautiful thing."
PROFANE EXISTENCE #52/53

"Fuck this is a MONSTER!! [...] How this band has gone unnoticed is wholly beyond my comprehension. Such ferocity combined with the ability to craft such catchy melodies all whipped up in a whirlwind of intensity that leaves the listener well rocked and jaws agape. The term Blitzkrieg has rarely been more appropriate than it is here; all the manic thrashing mayhem you could want with all the song craftmanship you could never expect.... combine SLIME's hooks with WRETCHED's urgency. [...]"
SLUG & LETTUCE #89

"I have been a fan of HEIMAT LOS since the '80s and I hope they gain many new fans with this release. They are known for mixing blistering thrash with quirky elements of melody and awesome musicianship. [...] Top-notch release."
MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #280

"Musically, much of this is pretty smokin', with a nice BGK burn to much of the proceedings, and maybe a dash of DEAD KENNEDYS, MOB 47 and others thrown in for color here and there. [...] Having heard nary a note from them prior, I must say I'm mightily impressed."
RAZORCAKE #35

"Oui oui! This blasts and terrorizes in every form, a blitzkrieg of maniac rhythms powering an assault of skillful mayhem. From France, HEIMAT-LOS combine a familiar French punk sound with a blizzard of thrash havoc, all worked extremely well and enjoyably pleasant. Sharp instrumentation, with a good mix."
Pushead in MRR, 1985
