Released in 2007, 7 tracks plus 13 minutes live video of heavy hardcore crust, a live video filmed in Singapore, July 2007. Comes with silk-screened, pinned cloth cover and 20 pages booklet (lyrics, articles, tour pictures & flyers).
Kah-Roe-Shi played their first show in 2006 with the name Union Of Slaves. Kah = excess, Roe = labor, Shi = death, translated literally from the Japanese as “death from overwork” or occupational sudden death.
The band is musically characterized by unrelenting heavy crust hardcore and “human-system-hating” lyrics; with influences from From Ashes Rise, His Hero Is Gone, Dystopia, Counterblast and peers. A collective of system-hating armchair revolutionaries, the guilty comrades are Kid (vocals), Tiong (guitar, vocals), Fahmi (bass) and Zul (drums).
