Die!ChiwawaDie! / Struggle Session - Split Vinyl 2017 [Review]

[Hardcore Punk] [Punk Rock] [D-Beat] [Powerviolence]
(Canton / Beijing, China)

Today we got in our hands a pre-release of a Split LP that will be out as a 12” vinyl available on June 30th (2017) with Genjing Records & Qiii Snacks Records.

In Side A we have  Die! Chiwawa Die! from Canton, China, they have a male & a female Singer combining voices, changing from melodic to screams according to music intensity. I could not define music in a single genre or category, it can go from Alternative Rock to Power Violence with a Punk Rock foundation. There are some live videos in their facebook page showing a good comunication & energy with their frantic semi-naked crowd. My personal favorite song “No Stage is the Best Stage” that´s attitude, punk as fuck!!

In Side B we have  Struggle Session (FFO SPAZZ, Punch, Melt Banana, Ging Nang Boyz) from Beijing, China with a 4 man based band (voice, bass, guitar & drums) Screams & growls over a music combination of Stoner Rock, Powerviolence & D Beat sound with a Hardcore Punk base, a really powerful band preparing for a Spain/Marroco tour in July 2017, you can also see some live videos also with a frantic performance. My personal favorite “Unwound” a song to go apeshit crazy on & off stage.
