As one of the greatest Japanese hardcore bands to ever exist, Kuro has long been a favorite of those who want their hardcore laden with an extreme edge; for the time their sound was wildly chaotic, raw, distorted, and thrashed at a violent pace. Kuro ranks right beside both fellow heavyweights GISM and Confuse when it comes to timeless Japanese hardcore of the early to mid 1980s. This 15 track collection compiles several incredibly rare releases: their debut live 7” flexi from ‘83, the scorching “Who the Helpless” EP, “Fire” 7”, and their tracks from the “Pinch and Ouch” compilation. A must for any Japanese hardcore fan or collector, this features a jacket with quality artwork and includes a printed insert featuring liner notes, photos, and a discography. Pressed on red/clear swirled vinyl and in a one-time limited edition of 400 copies. Italian import.
