• Zouo "Agony憎悪Remains" LP
AGONY憎悪REMAINS, a discography spanning ZOUO's studio recordings is available across digital platforms here. ZOUO will release AGONY憎悪REMAINS as a deluxe remastered reissue featuring all of ZOUO's recorded studio output (including the highly sought-after 1984 debut 7" The Final Agony,) and 9 blistering live songs on April 23rd.
Originally formed by friends of a local skateboard crew in the early 80's, ZOUO quickly became torchbearers for Japanese hardcore punk at the time. The band's music was a direct reflection of their collective frustrations and takes on their culture; the lyrics detailed the bands hatred for "societal hypocrisies and existing religions." ZOUO's debut The Final Agony 7" remains a landmark release to this day - tracks such as "Sons of Satan" and "Making Love with Devil" showcase some of the most raw and evil punk to ever emerge from the underground.
