DEATH SIDE - Live And Live


No band on Earth can incarnate the status of "legendary Hardcore" better than the mighty DEATH SIDE from Tokyo. Founded in the mid 80's, they are hands down one the most respected and representative names from the Japanese Hardcore/Punk dojo and they helped forging that unique, highly energetic "burning spirits" style that has influenced so many bands all around the globe and helped growing a solid fan base of die-hard maniacs. 

Raging vocals, drums running at breathless speed and that fantastic riffing that combines classic HC outbursts with blazing metallic solos sounding like flying demons slicing your throat! They have recently re-united, in memory of their legendary former guitarist Chelsea that passed away on August 17th 2007. This is their first ever European show with an incredible line-up featuring 3 original members (Ishiya, You and Mukai) plus Ori (Pile Driver, ex Mad Conflux, one of Chelsea's first students) and Benkei (Crude, Mustang - currently considered one of the best guitar players in Japan's HC scene) replacing the highly missed genius of Chelsea (RIP).. yes, 2 guitars needed to reproduce his unbeatable monster-skils!!! 

Expect a devastating set with all their classics from "Wasted dream", "Bet on the possibility" and the split with Chaos UK.. If last year you enjoyed watching SxOxBx tearing the OEF stage to pieces and if you're an enthusiast of the true Japanese Hardcore sound, this is something that you just can't miss! HEART AND SOUL, MAKE UP YOUR MIND FOR THE BURNING SPIRITS!!!
