The A-side is a re-recorded version of a song from the 1st EP, and the B-side is a completely new song, “Hunter” and “Play”. The band’s music is hardcore punk with rock manner and freshness like green grass, dirt-rushing speed and dust.
Limited to 100 copies, available only at the band’s live shows and direct sales on the label.
Formed in 2020

Hakkutsu Sareta Session – NIKUDOREI
OOO-47 | CD
Legendary noise grind band NIKUDOREI, who formed in 1994, organized the live project “Satsuriku Zatsuon Butai” and became infamous throughout Japan for their extreme performances. Is back this summer! To commemorate their resumption of activities, the completely unreleased session will be urgently released as a joint release of dotsmark and Shit-eye cassette!
The sound files included in this album were recorded around 2005 for a split cassette with a certain band but were put in storage for many years due to the cessation of activities of Meat Slave. The sound source was unearthed after more than a decade, mastered, and the entire session was recorded in non-edited form, making it a must-have for fans of noise grind! The participating members are Okada, the core of Meat Slave and a living witness of the 90’s Japanese Grind Scene, and ARSEDESTROYER/Gore Beyond Necropsy, who also participated in the 3-way split LP “Triple Shocks !!! Freak Noise Show” and drummer Yamazaki, who supported the late Meat Slaves. The concept of music is fundamentally destroyed, and part changes pop up in the hell of a noise! The jacket with a card sleeve features recent images of Okada and Yamazaki as of 22 years ago, and although it is a previously unreleased sound source, it is a release that shows the band’s enthusiasm for restarting with this album. NIKUDOREI will celebrate its 29th anniversary next year, and we look forward to seeing what them will do in the future!

JUSTICE), nb (ZENOCIDE), and RIKI (AxVx), The latest form of UNCIVILIZED GIRLS MEMORY as of July 2022 is a T-shirt with a QR code, which has been building an art form that is inconsistent in area/format with the fluid participation of dotphob (leading composer), Dagdrøm (IMMORTAL DEATH, she luv it), nb (ZENOCIDE), and RIKI (AxVx). The QR code allows you to stream the soundtrack by Tamano + dotphob, the core of the current UCGM, which is as dense and adventurous as if CoH (Editions Mego, Raster-Noton) were going for STALAGGH-inspired depressive noise-black, a dazzling, jet-black sonic experience. The physical work “EMERALD” (2020), which can be heard through the performance and destruction of the vocalist’s non-singing, had the effect of a near-air accident during his appearance at DOMMUNE in 2018, is also available in a vacuum package. (2020), a vacuum package, and “VENTILATOR” (2021), an online installation achieved by simultaneously browsing photographs + sounds + tanka poems. All of UCGM’s art forms require the intervention of your perspective and action. Only when you wear the T-shirt designed by Tamano with 2Ø0ΛA!£ and D.D.D., will you witness the growing process of the angel embryo. The masterpiece “Seraphim 266,613,336 Wings” by Mamoru Oshii + the late Satoshi Kon remains unfinished. Still, with the help of the overlapping post-pandemic situation, this film will likely feel like a successful exodus to the Taklamakan Desert (the worldview of “Tenshi no Tamago” (Although the worldview may be closer to that of “Tenshi no Tamago”).

Obsèques – Sou
OOO-40 | C-60 | Digital
Death industrial/Power electronics “NEGATIVE CLIMAX” was active between 2009 and 2013. After several cassettes and live performances, the band went into a long silence. Still, In 2021, the original members reappeared and took on a new name as a sole unit: “Funeral.”
This work consists of three sections with eight tracks at the beginning of Sou’s activity on one cassette, is composed of tape loops of fragmented classical piano melodies and desperate moans throughout, and is devoid of any other extra information. The warmth of a corpse, a decaying spiral staircase from which one cannot escape, and a faded vision through a lifeless soul will disempower those who live in a different image and attract those who live in the same image.
Dubbed from the mono master tape to the normal tape by the vintage duplicator, corrupted in natural deterioration, this work reaches for the first time the “sound that Sou was aiming for,” and together with the laser-printed toner-focused binding, it is a work to be picked up in physical form. This is the first time the album has been released of Sou.
