Parasite: Proof of the Existence 7"
Latest 7" from this Japanese HC / metal band that has been relentlessly championed by Dwid from Integrity. If you're not an Integrity fan, though, don't let that dissuade you, because this is pure ugly, Japanese punk/metal in the GISM tradition. I've heard a few of Parasite's super-limited releases before this, and it's really uncanny how well they tap into that classic Randy Uchida riffing style (like a drunk Iron Maiden sort of) and the vocals are an admirably warped impression of Sakevi as well. All in all two stone-cold rippers... extremely highly recommended for fans of the band and style.X
