G.I.S.M - Detestation

Band: G.I.S.M
Album: Detestation
Genre: Punk/Hardcore
Location: Japan
Year: 1984

One of the pioneering hardcore bands in japan. Wikipedia had this to say about band member Sakevi:
Sakevi attacked the singer of Jagatara on national television [6]. On stage, Sakevi would often be dressed on stage wearing a balaclava & bullet belt, waving lit flares in audience members faces, using microphone stands as clubs, & attacking concert goers as Vietnam War footage was projected behind him. In the past he has attacked photographers for taking pictures of him & has chased audiences with a flamethrower.
