ZOUO the final agony 7" (1984)
3.Sons of Satan
4.Making Love with Devil
I wish I had the original of this one, but nope... I'm stuck with this 1990's bootleg instead. The original cover art is completely different from this generic looking ep. The original has the look of pure evil. I'm sure this has been posted on other Japanese worship blogs before, but this one needs the attention of my metal friends who read, and download songs from this blog.
My friend Simon Dysgusher/Ugly Pop Records was the dude to really bring this band to my attention.
As I recall, Simon would make these awesome compilation cassettes for his friends, that were just chock filled with great hard to find Japanese hardcore classics. When He first made me a tape that compiled the bands only record, I was sorta in aw because the band had such a evil,grubby, noisy metal sound to them, and Simon was known for hating most things metal('cept Slayer).
My buddy Jim MacNaughton and I must have blasted these recordings a billion times while driving around the north east to random punk gigs.
This is an essential recording, and just goes on to prove how fucked up the Japanese really are.
The ep is the bands only release, besides a compilation that also came out of Japan.
I'm pretty sure metal heads who have never heard these short lived heroes, will absolutely go bonkers for this one.
