Japan’s HAKUCHI (Niigata City) getting the long awaited vinyl treatment they deserve! HAKUCHI spanned 1991 – 1994 and released 2 EP’s and several demos and appeared on a few compilations. While their early recordings follow the more classic Japanese hardcore tradition of the time they morphed into their own unique style of heavy metallic crust that peaked with their 93′ EP God’s Disturb on Overthrow Records. While you can hear nods to early U.K. crust a la Amebix, Axegrinder and Extreme Noise Terror, these punks were blazing their own trail. This Discography includes tracks from:
-Gods Disturb EP, 7/93 (overthrow records)
-Niigata City Hard Core Comp EP, 93 MCR
-FKD presents comp tape, 8/92 (FKD)
-Age of Confusion demo tape, (9/91)
-World in a Mess demo tape 5/92
-Last Live Gig at Woody 4/94
-1994 Last Demo
And a previously unreleased track.
Some of these tracks appeared on the long out of print split 12” with Disclose released in ’98. Most members of Hakuchi would eventually go on to form A.G.E. and have continued on the metallic Japanese crust path they helped to pioneer.
