Tokyo’s Powerviolence NEGATIVE SUN, Drop Intense Debut Demo

Negative Sun231111

Tokyo downtown terrorizer, Negative Sun‘s debut Demo combines the raw taste of Grindcore, Powerviolence primal rage, and vicious Hardcore-Punk assault, creating a harsh, rough, and nasty sound! Shouting and criticism of the Japanese police states, gritty political landscape, and social disillusionment, Negative Sun set 3 serious powerful, fast, and no-mercy tracks, including 1 Lightning Bolt cover. This Demo reflects the never-ending wild and chaotic generation year by year. It is simply a brutal, aggressive, and, killer Demo to catch this year!

Created with uncompromising passion and a resolute DIY ethos, Demo 23′ was crafted in-house by Takagi Pugnus Emura and Sei Mizusawa. Negative Sun drummer DMK is also part of a Hardcore band called Tear Da Club Up and Bassis Takaki in Belmadigula. The album’s visual identity is equally arresting a stark x-ray of a nailed statue of Christ created by Chifu, symbolic of Demo ‘23’s raw intensity and message. The debut Demo will be released on a cassette for the first time with Gerpfast Records in November 2023.
