LIFE "Ossification Of Coral" LP

150 gram black vinyl housed in an old school Stoughton heavy board tip-on jacket, with 2 sided 12x12 inch lyric insert.

The third full-length release from Tokyo’s seasoned crasher crusties. With headfirst full on power and brutal raw punk, this is an amazing follow up to their previous releases. Thirteen blistering tracks filled with energy showing that there’s no stopping them in their quest of anti-nukes protest punk. As the title of the record implies, this is also a record to raise awareness of the importance of the ecosystem, the exploitation of coral reefs and its existence as well as its impact on humans and all life’s survival. True to their beliefs and practicing what they preach, here raising political awareness in a time where censorship is law and silence is maintained through fear. LIFE as a collective takes a stand and inspires a resistant culture.

"Tokyo crust veterans LIFE’s latest LP Ossification of Coral combines the influences of ’80s Swedish hardcore, English and Scottish metallic crust, perhaps some influences from their peers over the years; yet still makes it their own. With the implementation of slower, groovier parts à la UK crust bands (AXEGRINDER or DEVIATED INSTINCT), the tracks have more variation than in the past, but they still continue to deliver the raging fast SEDITION/SCATHA-like approach for which they were known. Lyrics consist of anti-military sentiments that not only point out the issues that we face, but also manifest anthems in solidarity and support of the victims of oppression in this society. Includes a cover of ’90s Tokyo scene peers ABRAHAM CROSS’s “Same As War” and artwork done by Nozaki of COLLAPSE SOCIETY/STAGNATION. This release is a great representation of how the ’90s generation of the Tokyo crust scene is relevant in the current generation; still absolutely raging as hard as it did even after a few decades of existence. Highly recommended." - MRR January 2021
