• THISCLOSE / SLUDGE split 7"
"Are you ready???" for Thisclose/Sludge Japan tour? for Japan to get a crasher course in the Grave New Beat?
Thisclose unleash two tracks of their unmistakable d-beat formula: the high-charge catchy chaos of Discharge intertwined with the ballsy prancing hard rock of Discharge, backing Rodney Shades' signature heavy metal wail. Along with Gasmask Terror and Vaaska, they are one of the few bands that somehow manages to make "d-beat" stylistically interesting and exciting in 2017.
Sludge follow up their LP on Crust War with two tracks of metallic Japanese hardcore. They mix the rocking and attitude of traditional Japanese hardcore like Tetsu Array with the heaviness and aggression of metallic Japanese bands like Ghoul and Demolition. Not for the faint of heart.
