Liberate - Never Fading Away ep

Japan's Liberate with what I think is their second ep. This is some fine Japanese Hardcore Punk with very strong UK influences. Great gang vocals and a nice fat sound make this ep a stand out.

01 - Never Fading Away
02 - Crime For Life
03 - Retribution

Blood Sucker Records.

ex-Acid? Really? Fuck that explains why this band rule. I have their 12" as well which is just as killer.

Yep, this is their 2nd EP.

They have 3 EPs, 1 LP and 1 split EP (w/ SELFISH) under their belt. All their other releases are great.

One word: SHOCKTROOP LP. It's one record that I can't seem to stop playing. Going to check out Macrofarge now, think I got some of their stuff but never really had the lust to get into it much, ditto Crossface.

Good call to adopt Kuro as your punkname. I am henceforth a.k.a. 'Discharge' (or is that already taken?).

Kill ugly pop said...

Kuro means "black" or "dark" in Japanese. Not sure the singer is named after the famous punk band name...

Great blog man! I came across this trying to find the Toxic Waste/ Stalag 17 The Truth Will be Heard 12" since I havent heard it in years since one of my friends ganked it. I was amazed to find it out on the web so I trickled through your site and I am having massive nostalgic attacks reading through these records. DAG NASTY YES!. Unfortunately for some reason the mp3 you have linked dont work for me. Is there any chance at all you could ever send me the mp3s of teh Stalag 17 record, I will be forever indebted! THANKS MUCH!!!
