This is a Reissue of the last LP by legendary Japanese HC band The Execute fromed in 1981. ‘The Antagonistic Shadow’ was originally released in 1988 and most people will remember them from their killer Split 12" with German punk's Inferno released on Pushead's label. This is way less thrashy than their earlier work and as with Gastunk they seem to have taken a large influence from UK heavy weights like the Southern Death Cult and Killing Joke. This is a great record for those downer somber moments and it has a lot of really nice guitar work and awesome vocals. Gloomy, original and with a lot of atmosphere!
