Crow "Who Killed Dove?" was originally issued in Japan on the band's own Crow Records in 1985 and was the Osaka band's first release. Four raw blasts with the rumbling immediacy of classic early UK hardcore delivered with some of the inventive craftsmanship that would come to define Japanese hardcore. Searing guitar drops, walloping bass, crashing cymbals and scowling harsh vocals, The title track is one of the band's signature Anthems and this Landmark EP is one of those defining cornerstones of 1980's Japanese hardcore.
