Youth Enrage - 1999 - Youth Enrage

First CD by this fastcore band from Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan.
Youth Enrage plays fast and quirky, furious hard core. Most of the songs here are below the one minute mark, but filled with stop/starts, crazy tempo changes, odd time signatures and screamed-at-the-top-of-their-lungs vocals.
They took their name from a Life's Blood song.
Seems the band exists no more.  Too bad they were quite under-rated, because they did pull much more intensity and creativity than most of their "early 2000s fastcore" counterparts...
