Artist Profile: The Comes

Updated: Jan 20, 2019

Hardcore Punk/Metal Crossover 1982-1986


The Comes started in Tokyo, Japan in 1982 and were active until 1986. Definitely the first Japanese HxC band fronted by a woman (Chitose)

They put out two Lp’s...No Side and Power Never Die...the latter being more crossover metal thrash…

Ex-members went on to classic Japanese punk bands such as Gastunk and Lipcream


The neat compressed production with this feral, powerful almost murderous vocals… Don’t let the first LP fool you...the first song (sung by a guy) is a red herring...she takes over after….

Literally any Japanese HxC from 1979 to now is usually a notch above anything the U.S. is putting out
