Regular edition in Black Vinyl
Vile, Antagonist, And Visionary Blackened Hardcore From Japan. MAXIMUM AUDITIVE TORTURE. Hatred, the corrosive debut full-length onslaught from Japan's mysterious harsh, doom-fueled crust/hardcore outfit FRIENDSHIP, is now available through Southern Lord, the LP streaming in its cruel entirety. While FRIENDSHIP's identity remains an enigma, those who have encountered their antagonistic, loud, and murky sonic world, can testify to the sheer power of the auditory torture the band creates. FRIENDSHIP has previously self-released two CD EPs which sold out in a month since reissued as I & II vinyl and cassette version through Sentient Ruin. For their Hatred LP, the band delivers twelve caustic tracks in just over twenty-five minutes, the album recorded in their home city of Tokyo, the album then mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. Blackened, ominous, and intense, fans of prior Southern Lord releases by Nails, Heartless, Dead In The Dirt, Gust, and similarly devastating acts should not ignore this.
