LONG awaited follow up to their classic and highly sought after 1st EP, POIKKEUS return out of nowhere with another brilliant release.
Where as earlier in the bands history, they played some killer Finnish HC style, this is rougher and tougher and shows they've matured well.
I think I prefer this POIKKEUS, but maybe that's because I played their last 7" to death. There's still flashes of the old style of course but this is excellent stuff that's drawn comparisons with other Japanese greats like GISM and ZOUO.
Nice packaging too.
This is one of the best Japanese bands, effortlessly cool...
