Vintage Death Side Bastard "Burning Spirits" T-Shirt
Burning Spirits is used to describe a scene and a sound of Japanese hardcore bands. It refers to a group of bands that play fast, chaotic, and extremely aggressive punk-influenced hardcore and have been doing so for decades now. The name Burning Spirits actually refers to an annual Japanese tour of the same name that began in 1988. One of the most monumental editions was when Death Side and Bastard played. They were both hardcore bands from Tokyo and both released monumental albums in the early 90s, Death Side with Bet On The Possibility in 1991 and Bastard with Wind Of Pain in 1992. Both bands ceased activities and went on to form more legendary bands, like Forward and Judgement. This original Burning Spirits tour shirt, nicely worn in with a few light marks and spots from prolonged storage and a small seam coming undone on the storage, is from the Death Side Bastard edition of the tour.
