Japanische Kampfhörspiele früher war auch nicht alles gut

Though many bands take the opportunity to remix and remaster their work when compiling older material, German destroyers Japanische Kampfhörspiele decided to stick with their guns. The DIY recordings are all included in their original form, giving fans that caught on after 2003’s breakout, Fertigmensche, the opportunity to peer into the past and revisit these raw underground gems documented between 1998 and 2002. Twenty-eight tracks from a number of sold-out pressings and four demos later reworked and officially released come together for an entire hour of skull crushing good times. The album stands as a fine gauge measuring exactly how their songwriting has developed into the increasingly complex but perpetually punishing auditory mayhem that characterises their work today. Hopefully this consolidation can cement the depths of JaKa’s talent in the realm of disbelievers and though traditionally overlooked, garner the attention they deserve. (Bastardized)
