18 previously released tracks and 1 unreleased track compiled from various past releases between 2006 - 2013! No Boss 7", No Nukes 7", Frenzy split 7", V/A What A Hell Fukushima Cd, V/A Terro-Rhythm #7 Cd, V/A Noise Of Mind!! Vol. 2 Cd, V/A Hakai Idenshi Cd. Intense Noise Punk from Okazaki, Japan!



Our take: Discography-to-date from this Japanese noise-punk band. Calling Attack SS a noise-punk or crasher crust band seems like a disservice because, particularly on the 2012 and 2013 releases collected on the a-side of this LP, they are a shit-hot band that has as much power and flexibility as any legendary Japanese hardcore band. They’ve always ripped, but the a-side tracks (which come from the No Nukes EP and the split with Attack SS, which they must have recorded at the same session) have a clear and powerful sound that highlights the great playing. The drums are big and clear and the bass is thick and burly, the two instruments leaping and lunging in unison a la later-era Gauze, while the guitar is a Kyushu-style wash of white noise. The singer also has an interesting style; I like how on the track “Warning” he yells “AAAAAH!,” a bunch of times, not like a typical punk or hardcore band, but like he’s just been surprised by a big cockroach running across the floor. I know there are a million d-beat bands out there and everyone’s attention span is different, but this is worthy stuff.
