High Rise - Induced Depression

Look, we might be doing okay for psychedelic noise metal these days, but believe me in the 1980s it was in short supply. That's why bands like High Rise were so crucial. Induced Depression was first released on Psychedelic Speed Freaks (1984) and in its original form it's an impressive blast of noise but sounds like it was recorded on a cheap cassette several miles away from the speaker stacks. Thankfully the 1997 compilation Psychedelic Speed Freaks '84-'85 offers a much sharper, more present version taken from the original sessions. It would be difficult to overstate how much guitarist Narita Munehiro shreds on this cut. If you love it when Acid Mothers Temple wig out, this is part of the same lineage as that exhilarating sandblast sound.
