Grave New World – The Last Sanctuary

Out of stock


Reissue of otherwise nearly impossible to find Japanese epic. – Dan

Active for four years, Tokyo’s Grave New World is the unfamiliar work of familiar faces. The group’s lone album, 1992’s experimental crust epic “The Last Sanctuary,” is uncommonly challenging and immune to easy comparisons. The band took the post-apocalyptic crust blueprints of Amebix, cut them into jagged pieces, tie-dyed them in a Jonestown punchbowl, and made a paper mache bust of Maurizio Bianchi. It’s the shockingly unexpected output from a supergroup that rose from the ’80s hardcore ashes of Asbestos, Crow, Last Bomb, and Crisis Kill. The band set out with the explicit goal of defying expectations, and has suffered a legacy of relative obscurity as the result. – Negative Insight
