Haunted by Heat I couldn’t remember if it was snowfall or ashes that fell in the darkness because that winter so many fires gorged on my old town-- each one, gathering a crowd. I’d never before been afraid of flames or had my lungs choked by smoke or heard third degree screams. All I can see are the flames. Where am I from? I’m afraid. I’m afraid. I can’t breathe, but I scream, and I scream. I didn’t stay long, but now I’m still haunted by heat. ‘Cause I can’t help but think what has this done to me? The embers from the trees fall around my feet. And when they hear me scream they fall to their knees. ‘Cause I can’t help but think what has this done to me?

Near the End She told me that love is not enough.

Humans 01:22
人間たち (Humans) アスファルト打ち付ける 匂い立つRainのインセンス 修正をかまして、誤解を解こうとした 電飾を投げ捨てて 失踪した影をEmbrace 平均が美徳の君の生命維持装置の スイッチを切って、HDも焼き捨てる 確かにあんたが言う通り Trueでいることは難しいが
4.
Ghosts 03:29
幽霊たち (Ghosts) 仕上がってたっけ 散らばってたっけ 移動していく 匍匐前進 ツチノコ 人の手にすり寄せて 彼女はいつもそう 疲れている 背中を押していく 無気力シーツの亡霊 滑って転げ落ちていく 病的な嫉妬 気の毒な症状 二つの光源、近づいていく家の方へ向けて 会社員と上手く対話する感じで生活を考察: 圧縮されて小さくなっていく、陰惨な状況 死に腐る感受性 発狂寸前 圧縮されず脱出したいんだけど 許されてみたいだなんて 言えたはずじゃないはずだな 楽した結果、楽しさは減った。 近くのまた毛布を手にした これじゃ亡霊だ 液晶越しの人生 他人のレンズを通してだけ経験している状況を なんて呼べばいい?

about

Emotive hardcore bands Overo (USA) and Asthenia (JPN) pair up to deliver four visceral, cathartic songs. Originally planned in conjunction with an Overo/Asthenia Japan tour set for November 2020, the split 7” showcases both bands’ ability to balance vulnerability and aggression, light and dark, whispers and gut-wrenching screams. As the pandemic raged across the world, eight record labels across six countries stepped up to support the release despite the cancellation of bands’ tour in support of it. The end result is a response to COVID-19 that’s sonic and substantial rather than literal.

Overo formed in November 2018 when emo stalwarts from football, etc. and Perfect Future teamed up with veteran Houston drummer John Baldwin. The chemistry was instantaneous and fueled by a passion for experimentation, intensity, and a time when emo was much closer to hardcore. In 2019, Overo released their self-titled debut LP and toured the US and UK. The band is currently working on its second LP.

Asthenia is a hardcore band from Toyko, Japan. They play simple, to the point, arpeggio-heavy and screamy-singy-talky hardcore influenced by bands such as Vanilla, Moss Icon, Plunger, Native Nod, Yage, and Turning Point. Lyrics are sung almost entirely in Japanese, on topics ranging from social ills and racism in Japan to politics, depression, lives, loves, and regrets.

In 2014, Asthenia self-released its Four Songs 10” (later re-released by Cross My Heart and Hope to DIY), and since then released a split 7” with Akallabeth (UK), a split CD with Blue Friend (JPN) and Calculator (USA), and a digital EP. Asthenia also appeared in several compilations including My Heart in Your Hand 10”. With the help of their friends and community, the band has organized DIY tours for several bands including Human Hands (UK), Calculator, and Nebraska (AUS). In 2016, Asthenia toured the UK with Human Hands and Arkless (UK)
