New record by my hardcore family Kuroishi, I picked up a big stack as I think I'm the only person distributing this record in the USA.
Hot on the heels of their first LP, Kuroishi drops a follow-up that I guess qualifies as a "12inch EP" because it's not a proper album, it's short and sweet. A couple songs leftover from the same recording session as the LP, including the smash hit "No Time to Live" one of their best songs and I thought for sure it'd be the opening song for the LP but I guess not.
If you heard the LP, you know the drill. This is a great mix of Tragedy and Scandinavian kang, heavy and brutal, dark and bleak, but with an underlying appreciation for Japanese hardcore that comes out as particularly well-written riff-driven songs.
Look out for USA tour in 2018!!!!
