Japanese label Break The Records has just released sick record by Japanese band etæ.
“In the northernmost prefecture of Japan lies the legendary hardcore scene of Hakodate city. This city rooted bands like CRUDE and MUSTANG to grow into the giants they have become, while etæ evolved Hakodate. etæ’s discography is now available on CD.
Each song roars with untamed rhythms entwined by melodic riffs, shaking our hearts due north. Yet on this journey though their music, we curiously stumble on the roots of the soul. Put simply: This is HAKODATE CITY HARDCORE.
The discography clocks in a total of 13 songs on two 7”s. Although it compiles many releases, the consistency of etæ’s style creates something of an album of its own. Long live the music and the love of the northern land.”
