“Black days 1988-1992: complete singles, demo and live collection“. Combining the best elements of classic Japanese Hardcore with a scorching Metal-infused guitar work as well as a solid rocking vibe, JUNTESS stands as one of the most underrated bands of the late ’80s to early ’90s wave of Tokyo HC. This ultra exhaustive anthology finally makes justice to the quality and originality of their music, collecting all their existing recordings: singles, compilation tracks, the rare “not for sale” demo 1989 and a very complete selection of live material, except the album “Under the red moon” that was already reissued on F.O.A.D. in 2017. A maniacal collection that reconstructs their history from the very first days to the final show: 1988 to 1992. Double LP + 2x extra bonus CDs, for a total of 86 SONGS! Comes in a thick gatefold jacket with OBI strip and 12 page full colored booklet with rare photos, flyers, biographical notes and scans of their complete discography.
