Metal drenched hardcore unit from Kansai (they re-located to Tokyo later on) who were active from the late 80s to 90s. Rapes had a reputation for violence and mayhem, which, as usually seems to be the case w/ these older Japanese underground bands, is probably wildly exaggerated. Good stuff with the kind of guttural barking vocals I like in my Japanese hardcore.

These songs originally appeared on comps and were later released as a mini-cd.
