Death Side-Satisfy the instinct 7"

This is the first ep of legendary Death Side, released back in 1897 1987. They were one of the greatest Japanese bands, formed in mid 80's and disbanded about a decade later. They released several records (the classic 7"s All is here now and The will never die ,the Wasted Dream lp, Bet on the possibility and the split w Chaos UK) and appeared in many compilations, (Eye Of The Thrash Guerrilla lp, Smashing Odds Ness 8", Starving Dog Eats Master lp etc) after they disbanded, members formed some great bands: Paintbox(the band of Chelsea), Forward(the singer and the bassist) and Judgement(the drummer along with former Bastard members).
Satisfy the instinct 7" was released by Selfish Records in 1987 and it is included in the The will never die, a 2xCD compilation released by Nucleus,. Here they offer six tracks of traditional japanese hardcore blending it with influences from Scandinavia. Shouting vocals,fast tempos and thick guitars with catchy riffs. The production is good and the cover artwork is gloomy and comes from the classic horror movie "Phantom of the Opera" of 1920. A classic!
