DEADLY NOISE BLAST HARDCORE PUNK! The complete collection of GOUKA "sound sources is finally released.
It's a hardcore roaring sound, but GOUKA's sound is difficult to explain in one word. A rhythm that sprints like a bounce with a unique tempo. It's noisy, but it's not just noise, it's a guitar and bass that rampages with powerful momentum. Vocals spit out with a unique sense of words and choice of lyrics will never be swallowed by the band sound and will continue to stand at the front. It is undeniable that D-BEAT is at the core, but if you listen to it, you will feel something different from "it". GOUKA had embodied it from that time that it was foolish to dare to wrap it up in words.
From the 12-inch "PROGRAM" that is still handed down as a masterpiece to the precious cassette tape sound source, it has been remastered and recorded in a set of 2 CDs, all 50 songs.


Unbeknown to the quiet city of Morioka, GOUKA's DEADLY NOISE BLASTING HARDCORE PUNK rests like a chest full of treasure. The members have moved on to play in a band called Rappa, but the full discography of the original “GOUKA”will be released here.
Put simply, they play hardcore that roars, yet simplifying their sound would be a lie to their actual sound. Tempos sprint and bounce with an untamed ferocity. The guitars and bass rampage through a scenery saturated with intentional noise. Vocals rage at the frontline, spitting out fingerprinted lyrics, never to be swallowed by the instrumentals. The music is undeniably rooted in D-BEAT, but it has flowered into something with a hint of “something else.” That something's name remains unknown, as though naming it would be foolish—something GOUKA knew when creating their music.
All 50 songs of GOUKA's discography ranging from their appraised 12 inch “Program” to their preciously hidden cassettes, have been remastered and recorded onto this set of 2 CDs.
