LP | "Military Affairs Neurotic"
2023 | RELAPSE RECORDS
Japan´s G.I.S.M. return with the first ever authorized and licensed reissue of their cult sophomore album "Affairs Neurotic (M.A.N.)". The album, another landmark release for this legendary band, sees the wild pairing of Randy Uchida's iconic guitar playing colliding with the inimitable vocals of G.I.S.M. mastermind Sakevi Yokoyama once again. This reissue features a remaster by Sakevi himself.
A successor to the band´s legendary "Detestation" LP, M.A.N. harnesses G.I.S.M.´s frantic, aggressive take on Hardcore, Punk and churns out a Heavy Metal edge. Out of the gate, Uchida´s guitar solos and soaring leads on the classic opener "Good As It Is" pave the way for what follows
"M.A.N." is unmistakably Metal, atmospheric, and uncompromising in its vision. "M.A.N." is simply incomparable: the album´s production, visual presentation, the songwriting encapsulates the sound of burning Punk spirit and Heavy Metal grit and cement G.I.S.M.´s legacy as one of the underground´s most idiosyncratic, genre bending, and truly unique bands.
The first edition of this album came out in the year 1987 by the legendary japanese label BEAST ARTS (a label owned by the G.I.S.M. singer Sakevi).
Standard edition on Black vinyl (7582 copies were pressed), this LP version was faithfully constructed to recreate the original art and layout which features a custom screen printed polybag.
