Four rippers from Japan's SOOTHE, clocking in at just over nine minutes. Musically, SOOTHE don't stray too far from the classic Japanese hardcore formula, though there is something innocent and adolescent sounding about these songs and the female vocals often sound as if they are coming from a very very angry teenage girl. Healthy bits of melody (especially from the vocals) make for a more than infectious listen. These songs will likely be shunned by Japan hardcore purists (see: innocent and adolescent), but I can't shake a distinct COMES comparison - especially with the vocals - and I can't get enough of them.

The unusual cover art got my attention. This is cool. That scream at the beginning of 'Eyes' really makes it all worth it!
