Atomic Fireball : Strange Ways ('99)

Dense semi-chaotic hardcore from Japan. This band would later briefly feature Tsukasa Harakawa on vocals (during which time they would release a split with Swarrrm, another band Harakawa went on to join). In this incarnation they play bottom heavy, somewhat experimental metal/hardcore. The production is compressed to a degree while the vocals are static-laden and relatively low in the mix .

I have to say I didn't particularly like this when I first heard it, but it grew on me with more listens, as was the case with some Steve Austin-produced stuff which this reminded me of production-wise.
