Paintbox's "Earthball Sports Tournament" LP was the Tokyo band's second album, issued in 2000 on CD-only on the Legendary HG FACT label. Remarkable in that guitarist Chelsea, formerly of DEATHSIDE, completed the creative song writing for these 14 tracks so shortly after their debut album "Singing Shouting Crying". This is one of Paintbox's most aggressive hardcore records, but still featuring their masterful musicianship, catchy song writing, Vocalist Mune ( ex- SCREAMING HOG) intense growling vocals and underlinings of the expansive influences that would later propel their final album" Trip Trance & Travelling".
