G.I.S.M - Detestation


'Punks is Hippies'

G.I.S.M are basically the go-to band for most people when you mention Japanese punk or hardcore. For a bunch of dudes who dressed like Motley Crue rejects, they played some really cool, mid-tempo hardcore tunes. On later releases they would start to experiment more with industrial and thrash metal, and you can start to see some of the metal influences creeping in on this one. The unique guitar tone, and hilariously gruff vocals on Detestation make for a slightly humorous listen, though it's anyone's guess as to whether it was intentional or not.
