Gism are one of those legendary hardcore bands that people talk about for decades. the singer(Sakevi) was known as a crazy motherfucker who would kill you in a heartbeat(he'd attacked photographers, concert goers, and random people on the street). Sakevi spent time in jail, and was rumored to have organized crime ties. The band was from Tokyo Japan, and formed in around 1980 (one of Japans first hardcore bands). The band became famous for its use of violence through imagery (record covers, films, t shirts) and the fights that Sakevi would get into.
I first heard the band on a Compilation LP in the mid 80s..then again later from my Japanese hardcore collector buddy Louis Jacobs. The sizzling leads, and raw metallic riffs are what drew me into the bands music.
In around 2001 the main writer/guitarist died of cancer.
