PAINTBOX - "炎 : 砂漠" EP in English translation is "Flame : Desert". This was released on HG Fact Records as HG-101 in '98. This band plays similar to the traditional Japanese HC but with more energy and it also features the Guitarist from the classic Japanese band DEATH SIDE in which he plays the same position. This was recorded at the known OUR HOUSE studio. This EP only contains 2 songs, track 1 being "Flame" and track 2 being "Desert". The last I heard of them is that they are still together but their original singer is in jail, but they have been working on a new release which has been in the works for years now. PAINTBOX also have a number of releases in which many are still in print so be sure to look for those. You can get them from Prank Records and Hardcore Holocaust in the USA and Nat Records and Record Shop Base in Japan.
