Japan’s G.I.S.M. return with the first ever authorized and licensed reissue of their cult sophomore album, Military Affairs Neurotic (M.A.N.) The album, another landmark release for the legendary band, sees the wild pairing of Randy Uchida’s iconic guitar playing colliding with the inimitable vocals of G.I.S.M. mastermind Sakevi Yokoyama once again. This reissue features a remaster by Sakevi himself, and sees a first-time official pressing on CD and cassette.

A successor to the band’s legendary Detestation LP, M.A.N. harnesses G.I.S.M.’s frantic, aggressive take on hardcore punk, and churns out a Heavy Metal edge. Out of the gate, Uchida’s guitar solos and soaring leads on the classic opener “Good As It Is” pave the way for what follows – M.A.N. is unmistakably metal, atmospheric, and uncompromising in its vision.

M.A.N. is simply incomparable. The album’s production, visual presentation, and the songwriting encapsulates the sound of burning punk spirit and heavy metal grit, and cement G.I.S.M.’s legacy as one of the underground’s most idiosyncratic, genre bending, and truly unique bands.
