Billy had the brilliant idea of tapping into the norwegian scene with his Kort Prosess post below, so I thought I'll follow suit. Here's the Jin'Rik'Sha' double 7" from 1999 (in one of my most favorite labels - Heartfirst, naturally).
The band had some Angst members (the Angst 7" & the split 7" with Idora will also be uploaded here at some point), which for me was already credentials enough to give them a listen: the first Angst song I listened to was their contribution to Skuld's 'Whispers' compilation & I was stunned by it (still am today, in fact). Jin'rik'sha's signature sound - if one can speak of such a thing, given that their output was limited to this 2x7" & a demo I never heard - was to become quite common in the latter years, as it's very close to what His Hero Is Gone were doing (& by extension to what Tragedy are doing). The interesting thing being, of course, that they were doing it before Tragedy took the world by storm! I still remember my ecstatic surprise when I got this in the mail (in 2004 from Skuld; way too late, of course), listened to it, & found out that the latter two tracks sounded essentially like Tragedy. (I still wouldn't quite consider the first two tracks that close to Tragedy/HHIG, though.)
Heartfirst has some interesting reviews on the record which, among other things, show that HHIG knew of the band's existence. Rumours have it that the band could have been far greater had they appeared more often & promoted their music more widely. At any rate, Jin'rik'sha' gave up at some point - what was born from their ashes was Hevn (which have been consistently around & whose recordings you can find here) & DieDieDie, a band that has criminally neglected to commit their tracks to vinyl before calling it quits. 'Out Of Time' must be one of the best thrash songs of all times - I so crave seeing this on vinyl, if I had the time & distribution connections I'd do it myself... Luckily, they seem resurrected now, so I hope for the best.
I seem to recall that there has been another band
