RASHŌMON - Pathogen X MLP w/download (LUNGS-125)
The perfect melding of two timeless facets of punk, the honest forward thinking DC style hardcore of Faith/Void split (yes, both sides) with total Deathside style anthemic hardcore. Both are furious and immediate and work together in perfect harmony here without really sounding like either exactly. New, important music is made this way. RASHŌMON has had their share of setbacks with immigration, mental health, modern American life in general... and that urgency and frustration is reflected here crystal clear.
500 copies of 150gr black vinyl with an etched B-side are housed in a beautiful 24pt jacket along with an insert and a download card. Recorded by the band in DC. Mastered by Golden. Art by Kohei.

Inventive, but not alienating. Accessible, but not dull. Melancholic, but not melodramatic. Invigorating, but not overbearing. Consoling, but not stagnating. Intriguing, but not confusing.
This record, with the fact that its widely varying contents cohere so elegantly, is a triumph. prosthesis_
