Absolutely devastating under the radar Japanese hardcore from WITHOUT SYSTEM. There's a disc on HG Fact from the early '00s that I think gets overlooked far too often - maybe it's the decidedly non-punk looking cover, maybe it's because it's CD-only...but it smokes - but these five tracks are unbridled and raw fury. Walls of backing vocals, searing metallic leads, one clenched fist anthem after another in the classic Burning Spirits tradition...the fact that a band this powerful can fly under the radar blows my mind.
