Iconoclast-Who does the freedom and equality exist for?

Someone made a comment about these crusties a few months ago asking infos about them and when i received this mail from Pete (cheers dude!) with this little gem i thought its ok to post it here.
These guys hail from Japan and they have not any relation with Iconoclast from USA
I know only a few about these guys:They first appeared with a demo tape in 1993 and one year later they contributed one song in"Under the cloudy sky - Kanazawa City HC" ep (MCR Company), in 1995 they released "Who does ..." ep and one year later they contributed two tracks in "Meaningful consolidation".
No much info on the web and the results in google search give nothing new, so if you know something about these guys don't hesitate to enlighten our darkness
"Who does the freedom.." was released by Blurred Records in 1995 with Iconoclast delivering five pieces of crusty D-beat japcore and the usual Japanese hoarse vocals. Icon Records (Iconoclast own label) is mentioned on the back cover, a co-release maybe with Blurred..Blurred rec.s is behind Senseless Apocalypse records, the Frigora/Diskonto split, Battle of Disarm/Snifter split, Nasum's World in Turmoil 7", Vivisection/Genocide SS split, Meaningful consolidation comp and many other 7"s
I ve nothing more to say here than this:This was the 200th post and is the result of a disagreement between me and Whispy ("you post the 200th" "no,you post it" etc),anyway, we hope you like it. cheers

Tracklist:
1:After the bloodshed
2:Killing the human race
3:Silence equals death
4:New military crisis
5:World of grey

would have been among my next posts but you were faster!a thing I never understood (and still not understand) is: if your english is not good enough to form a proper sentence why do you use it? to amuse people with brilliant titles like this one?

"The singer for Iconoclast also sings for the Crow"

No, he doesn't. The singer for Crow would be Crow. The singer for this band is Aoishi. Besides, just listening to the two is enough to tell you that it's not the same singer. This guy does sound a hell of a lot like the singer for Effigy, but that's not the same guy either.

Great record.
