Acute : Hebionna

Driving, high speed hardcore from Aichi-ken. This band provided the first two tracks on the 'Life Conception' comp I posted below.

Churning hardcore with high-pitched(female) vocals that still have a rough edge & avoid chirpiness. Most of the songs are short blasts played at pretty high gear, with the exception of the title track, which eases up on the gas and features a cool noodley little hook along with somewhat cleaner vocals and lyrics which seem to revolve around becoming a snake woman(hebi means snake and onna woman, and apparently snake/woman hybrids appear in Japanese folklore).

Good stuff.
