Reissue of 1988 LP by Japanese band. The original early-80's hardcore Execute split into two halves, with the other members carrying on the punk torch with Gastunk whilst bassist Lemmy (owner of the noted Selfish label) continued along a more TSOL/Samhain/Killing Joke/Deathrock influenced path. Hard to imagine this is the same band if you listen to the early stuff, but it's still a unique take on the Goth sound - sombre, heavy with a haunting atmosphere and, dare I say it, a dirty pop-edge
