French hardcore mob Rise Of The Northstar soak up Japanese Manga influences on their new album 'Welcame'. But is it any good?
‘What The Fuck’ is the first track on Rise Of The Northstar’s debut album ‘Welcame’, and sets the tone and spirit quite nicely. Starting off with a clean riff that’s quickly followed by a savage guitar solo, the song then suddenly dissolves into the belligerent, Japanese pop culture-influenced hardcore the French five-piece have made their own. The rest of the album doesn’t waste any time in following suit by delivering more gritty Mangacore that will be sure to satisfy existing fans. Whether other people will jump onto this downright bizarre bandwagon, on the other hand, is a completely different matter.
