High Rise exploded onto Tokyo's underground music scene with the roar and reckless abandon of a motorcycle accelerating headlong into a dead man's curve. Born from the explosive chemistry of bassist/vocalist Asahito Nanjo and frenetic guitarist Munehiro Narita, the band blazed a wild new stream of psychedelic guitar music. Their second album High Rise II (1986) is a defining document of the band and unquestionably one of the greatest albums to emerge from the 20th century underground of Japan and beyond.

With Nanjo's distorted thunder bass and Narita's wildly narrative lead guitar playing, High Rise II is a non-stop tour de force of improvised rock music. Combining elements of garage rock, punk and no wave, the band pushed all levels fully in-the-red here and transcended the limits of rock and psychedelia to create a raw, unique expansion of the music.

Black Editions presents a new vinyl edition of High Rise II, mixed and mastered by Asahito Nanjo in what the band confirms is the definitive version of their most quintessential recording. Pressed onto high quality vinyl by RTI, it comes housed in a heavy Stoughton tip-on jacket which also restores the original vinyl version's textured black and silver artwork.
