Makoto HARA Actually, this is the first album I bought from Bandcamp. I mistakenly bought this digital album twice.
Happened to listen to this album at a punk records shop in Osaka. A shop owner told me this is "Diat". Since then I had always been thinking how I get this, so I don't care about buying the same album twice.

DIÄT - Positive Energy LP w/download (LUNGS-070)
The long awaited debut full length has finally arrived. And the wait was well worth it. Diät have worked, worked and reworked these 8 songs until they were perfect. Who is this band you ask? Let us introduce you:
"Brought together by a shared enthusiasm for bleak UK punk and a history of playing in hardcore bands, Berlin based DIÄT have created a sound that they have described, perhaps not entirely seriously, as ‘tough new wave’. Fans of Crisis, Killing Joke and The Mob (UK) should be pleased by the band’s unlikely synthesis of depressive drift and cranked, accelerated energy.
‘Positive Energy’ was recorded last Winter while huddled in a practice space overlooking the industrial landscape of frozen East Berlin, the album finds Diät reining in the threads of malignant enthusiasm still peppered throughout their earlier recordings (both 7"s previously released on this fine imprint) to focus on the cynicism and dejectedness that binds them as a band."
Packaged in a high quality reverse board jacket with a 12 page lyric booklet only available in this version of the LP. All copies on black vinyl. The download comes with the "Hurricane" video as well.
Art: Jes. Sounds: Duckface. Mastered: Husayn. Video: West.
