KURO - Revival Of Death 7"
At some point you may start to believe there is as much mystery surrounding KURO as there is G.I.S.M. Having been bootlegged like they were part of 20's prohibition and their records often coming out years after they were recorded it gets a little confusing with KURO. At least it has been for me. Revival Of Death hits you with two unreleased songs Black Empire and Hell Dive (live). The remainder of the record is a live version No More No and a re-recorded No More No that originally appeared on KURO's Who The Helpless 8" in '84. I hear this record is the result of KURO getting back together in the mid 90's. Not long after this record their singer passed away and that would mark the end for the band. Some people may shrug off KURO over their destructive and violent live performances. I'll let the music do the talking as they tread the line between pummeling noise and fast paced hardcore.
Released by Kings World Records in 1996. Rumored to a limited pressing of 666.
