CRUDE

drug culture (2018/FAREWELL)

HARDCORE. "drug culture" is the new album from this long-running and killer Japanese hardcore band. There is no need for any introduction with a band like CRUDE! They've been around since 1995 and have come to define the Hakodate sound: melodic and layered Japanese hardcore played with heart and drive. As always, the sound is mega-tight Japanese hardcore with virtuosic playing and tons of bizarre twists and turns in the songwriting. Like the later GAUZE stuff, the songs jerk back and forth in ways that barely make sense but still just work. First press comes with huge poster and in amazing artwork by japanese punk-art legend Sugi. Pure Burning Spirit hardcore at its best!
