S.D.S.-Scum system kill 7" (Mangrove, 1996)

S.D.S. were the answer from Japan to UK's masters of crust of '80's and Scum system kill is another diamond of Japanese punk crust scene. They started back in 1987 and a brief history can be found in the old post of Never Arise, blog wise old timers probably remember Scum system kill posted in low bitrate and no scans in the first weeks of this blog so here it is in fresh new rip and scans.
Scum system kill includes four tracks that were recorded in the fall of 1995 and was released in 1996 by Mangrove in several vinyl colors, according to Discogs "This record was pressed on a myriad of colors. Red with blue splatter, yellow marble & black also exist, most likely others as well") and was included in 2cd discography (Past and Future, released on Mangrove/MCR).
Never arise was the first S.D.S. record and was pure worship of Antisect, Amebix and Axegrinder with heavy guitar riffs and mid-paced tempos, in Scum System Kill and the seminal split LP w Misery S.D.S. moved forward to a type of crustcore that mixes their metallic heritage of UK's crust legends with faster tempos, aggressive riffs, noisier sound and the typical gruff Japanese vocals (even the shrieking vocals of Distort fucking hope fit nicely with the music), i don't know if the example is appropriate but they remind me of the Deviated Instinct changes from Terminal Filth Stenchcore and Welcome to the Orgy to Rock n Roll Conformity, Guttural Breath and Nailed. The Punk Metal Bastard of artwork is just nice, a sheet with a text written by Takacho (vox) is Japanese is included, not any colored vinyl here, just the typical black.
In Ameber, S.D.S. slightly moved to a more metallic crustcore by adding some more metal hints that appeared also in Digital Evil in your Life 10" and in split w Hong Kong Knife they presented some rock n roll elements, when they called it a day some members continued with Delta.

I absolutely loved this ep when it came out. Lucky me, I had one on purple vinyl; now of course it did not sound any better becaue of it, but it did sure look cool. I'm not a huge fan of the genre, but they did it wonderfully. If I had this single I would still listen to it today. Thanks and keep up the good work!
