||"Don't call Japanese Hardcore, Japcore,"
is one song named by Seth Putnam of A.C. When you talk about Yellow
Machinegun you can't call them either of that. They have one more
thing about their band. They are all female. Yes, an all female Japanese
hardcore band. They formed back in 1993, so they have been around
for a while and are not following the band Kittie. If you are a fan
of hardcore you will like this album, its has a lot of the same felling
of Walls of Jericho. Im not the biggest fan of hardcore but there
were a few songs that got my attention. "Shut Your Mouth"
and "Iron Woman" I got into right away. "Ever-more"
is another good song. There are 15 tracks on this album that stretch
about 30 minutes long with the help of an 8 and a half minute song
at the end. The song length are generally short, but powerful, like
your typical hardcore. If your interested in seeing this band in America,
they will be at the Milwaukee Metalfest this summer for what I believe
is their first show in America. Howling Bull America will be releasing
a split 7-inch with the legendary thrashcore band S.O.D., and will
feature a sneak preview of Yellow Machinegun's latest material.
