Japanese metal!

Recommended Posts

We have a punk thread so I thought we should have a metal thread as well. Post everything japanese and metal, old or new doesn't matter. General talk about japanese metal. Simple as that.

The rocking motherfuckers in Barbatos has a new album out soon, Straight Metal War, their first new album for 9 years. I'm a fan of Barbatos and their black/thrash/punk metal, so I am looking forward to this. It's more of the same, but when your usual output is great there's no need to change so who gives a fuck about that. I love the vocals on Goodbye High School Girls. Sounds like an improved Shigeyuki Koide (Gorgon) or something. Should be cool, and I hope we hear more of that on the album.

Sludge gods Corrupted has a new EP released a month ago called 喪失:Loss. Looking forward to hear this one, as it's always exciting with new material from these guys. Couldn't find any of the songs online after a quick search though.

I need to keep my eyes on this thread real bad.

So embarrassingly out of touch w/ metal in general, I was into a lot of black metal as an early teenager and I reaallly miss it.

I like the new sigh stuff though! That's a start right?

I actually uploaded both albums of a short lived metal band Lance of Thrill. Straight from Japan, the vocals were nasally and wailing alongside the awesome chugging style of the band. Criminally short lived though. Definitely recommended to Japanese metal fans.

Strangely enough, I've never particularly liked most J-metal I've heard so far - Church of Misery is the exception, who SLAY tho (both on record and at live shows).

 

 

Anyone who begins their first album like this (skip to 1:25ish) is my hero.

Infernal Revulsion. Nothing else to say. Love them since their 1st album.

 

 

 

Vomit Remnants. Early advocats of Slam Death Metal. Fucking groovy.

 

 

 

One of japaneses first western touring outputs of Death Metal: Defiled! recently they've even showing signs of life again since they just played at Metal Barbarism II. Hope for a new album!

New Sigh album! So far it really sounds great. Has a Hangman's Hymn vibe to me definitely. But the mastering is fucking shit.

 

 

 

 

BABYMETAL is fucking SHIT

 

Oh yuck. How could I forget the best Melodeath band of all time. Intestine Baalism!

lol, u mad bro? don't worry, here's help for your spontaneous, incoherent bursts of anger and inferiority complex http://www.amazon.com/X-Cream-Penis-Enlargement-Cream/dp/B00G9GIKTW

 

more on topic the already mentioned "church of misery" are obviously magnificent, and in a similar territory "boris" is a pretty safe bet (although most of their material probably is more on the "experimental/noise" side of things)

 

on the blackmetal (well, post-blackmetal-hardcore-sthsth) frontier "COHOL" is a splendid ensemble, great guitarwork and drumming coupled with some complex, yet easily digestable songwriting. A+

 

this band "Cyberne" is probably from somewhere in the grind kind of things, which is probably more punk than metal, but whatever. their own genre description range somewhere between "intellectual hyper-extreme" to "tokyo noise ultra terror" or something, i call troll :P

regardless the music is great, they sometimes feature a grad total of three drumkits to blast you with super fast odd timesignature goodness with insane amounts of energy. good stuff

 

funnily enough the truest "metal" thing from a musical standpoint here is some touhou. most of the time i'm not a huge fan of these, because of either some pisspoor production or lazy songwriting (well, -arrangement) or both, but "Demetori" sure is something worth checking out. some of the most epic shreddy kitsch-laden melodic instrumental powermetal one can imagine.

 

there probably won't ever be a post about japanese metal where i don't mention "knellt"

super unknown osaka psychedelic doom entity with massive sound, great songs and superbe musicians and vocals.

(unfortunately no studio stuffs on utube, but the live gives an impression...)

I don't know that much but I'll just post some great tunes

 

Already mentioned but this song is very intensifying! the ending solo ohmylord!!

 

short lived band. loved their only album. plus that promo song or whatever it was. pretty good

 

I enjoyed this song a lot when I first heard it. I'm not so fond with the metal sub genres and what not, but this is power metal right? I think I found this song on the DeG Pandora station or most likely could be X. but yeah I dig this.

well, there used to be a huge thread about touhou and tons of touhou bands/circles somewhere on this forum, but i think it got deleted at some point. i'll try the short version here in the spoiler, zess can probably give lots more insight.

Touhou is originally a videogame called touhou project, a vertical scroller bullet-hell

there nowadays exist tons of these (12 or sth i think?) all created by one single programmer/creator. thing is, he is also in charge of the music, more precisely he originally ONLY did music and tried to sell that to videogame companies. nobody wanted it, so he said fuck it, i'll make the games for my tracks myself, so in essence the levels are the visuals to a computergame-music album of sorts.

long story short, the games became a huge viral hit. the type of 80s/90s-ish midi music quite often features musical aesthetics and harmonic structures that are also prominent in cheesy powermetal and very soon it became really popular for some guitarists/music arrangers on nico-nico to create metal-arrangements of these tracks, which became the genre Touhou-Metal by itself. this is probably the most widespread variation of it, but there also exists touhou-lounge, touhou-metalcore, touhou whatever. it's all based on the game's OST tho.

i hope the majority of this is somehow right, otherwise please correct me :D

It's good to some some activity in this thread. I'll join in with some great bands that's not been mentioned yet.

 

Sabbat

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfF1S4Ga-Zw

 

Cult black metal band formed in 1983, and one of my all-time favourite black metal bands. They're on of those bands that releases a shitload of useless compilations, splits, live albums and EPs all the fucking time and have a huuuuuuuuuuuuuge discography, but they've released 9 full-lenghts and 5 EPs that are must have's for any fan of black metal. None deserves a score worse than 9/10. A truly great band.

 

Magnesium

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4pYugANabo

 

Formed back in 1992, but since then they've only released three demos, three splits, two live albums, a single and a compilation, so it's not all that to dig into. But the little they have released is great, and Time Tells No Lies / Over the Rainbow stands as one of my all-time favourite heavy metal releases. Passionate and real.

 

Abigail

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EvQtAcUuiEQ

 

I mentioned Barbatos in the OP, and Abigal is the main band of Barbatos' sole member Yasuyuki Suzuki. Started out as a standard black metal band, but after their debut, which is fantastic, they turned thrashier and kept playing black thrash until now.

 

Fastkill

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0tj4Y64JJ0

 

Brutal thrash metal in the vein of old Kreator, Morbid Saint and Dark Angel. Straight-forward, brutal thrash metal with nothing new to offer, but what they do offer rules.

 

Doom

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSYNPSJeQWE

 

Started out as a really unique progressive thrash metal before moving more towards the realm of avant-garde rock with later albums. Their first two-three albums are great.

 

Gnome

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1093lRDqeo

 

Japanese black metal with a strong Burzum-vibe to it. Under the Black Moon is something beyond a masterpiece, and sadly one of the most overlooked gems in history of metal. Magnificent band!

 

Coffins

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ptl1BF6PDPU

 

Death/doom gods. They're like a mix of Autopsy, Winter and Celtic Frost. Brilliant band!

 

Transgressor

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgE4Z5ZcOOo

 

Great band, and the debut album is a forgotten Autopsy and Death-influenced death metal gem. It's nothing original, but it's something very, very good.

 

Messiah Death

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJjTchnTHBk

 

This band formed in 86, but only released three demos between 87 and 89 before they called the quits. Shame, because the demos are amazing. Raw death metal.

 

Anatomia

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8bwPR9hp6c

 

Death/doom in the vein of Autopsy and Coffins. There's nothing original to be found anywhere in Anatomia's discography, but they're doing what they do really good so there's no need for originality.

 

 

 

 

Will come back with more later.

that makes more sense to me now. I remeber watching this vid right here

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gz_71veAzzU

whole thing so insightful haha

 

 

but back to Japanese Metal

 

Heres Blood Stain Child. I think everyone here knows who they are.

They're my first encounter of electronic metal, or you could say melodic metal. It was a whole knew discovery of sound during that time. Never really grew but I liked it

 

I loved Sadew's vocals!

It would be cool if people didn't embed too many videos here, as not everyonehas decent computers. Some might struggle with all the videos. Use spoilers, or just link to a song like I did.

More japanese metal goodies:

Gallhammer
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hs3fl_vrgY8

Gallhammer was formed by three chicks in 2003, none who knew how to play the instruments they'd end up playing in the band. It didn't take long before the band had gained a cult following both because of them being three japanese girls, but also because of their original approach to metal. The band sounds like a mix of Hellhammer and early Amebix with a strong Darkthrone influence to it. Crusty black/doom metal. Their two first albums and the compilation are top notch. They were a brilliant live band as well.

Zadkiel
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rrn1zyGKAGE

Raw black/speed metal in the vein of early Venom with lots of Motorhead thrown in. Both the EP and single are great releases.

Bellzlleb
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0uJkyVTFLE

Wicked and theatrical heavy/doom and black/speed metal. I can't really think of many bands similar to this, but the dark, occult feeling of their first albums always gave me an early Sigh, Mystifier, Root and Rotting Christ-vibe despite not sounding anything like any of those.

Rosenfeld
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CY_D6IICbNg

One of the early, japanese visual thrash metal bands with a nazi image. Really cool band with some great demos and a masterpiece of an album in the discography.

Rommel
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFuqAdriwck

Another early visual speed/thrash metal band with a nazi iamge. It's not quite Rosenfeld, but it's more than enjoyable in my ears. I really dig this band.

Mein Kampf
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfhXou5CyCQ

The names says it all doesn't it? Less thrashier than the others, but this band was truly great. Traditional speed metal with a nazi image. Speeder is a speed emtal masterpiece.

Harkenkreuz
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=APCpa_cBV-0

You guessed it. Another visual nazi thrash metal band. They only have one demo and a split release to their name, bu the demo is really cool.

Sabbrabells
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Tm6mnzFjEk

Traditional heavy metal with an occult feeling similar to early Mercyful Fate, King Diamond, Hell and Angel Witch. A truly great band!

White Hell
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JP-HsISFAKg

Early black/speed metal. Released one single, and I dig it.

Crowley
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qQXkr9EH0E

Dark, occult heavy/speed metal fron Japan. One of my all-time favourite heavy metal acts. Both the EP and full lenghts are masterpieces. The band disbanded in the late 80's, but reformed in 2014. I don't have any great expectations, but looking forward to something new if they plan to release something.

Flower Travellin' Band
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9FW0zMpCrI

Classic psychedelic rock/heavy metal with a strong doom metal-vibe to it. Clearly influenced by the likes of Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and so on. Satori, which is their masterpiece, is really heavy for an early 70's release. 71 actually. You'll never hear anything like the masterpiece that is Satori.

Jurassic Jade
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koFiYJ5xqHQ

Raw, female-fronted thrash metal. The classic album Gore is poorly produced, but it's a god damn great album. I'm not familiar with the band outside of Gore, but I know for a fact that Gore is totally worth checking out for thrash metal fans.

Arkha Sva
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vtVSjAX3JI

 

Black metal with a strong 90's french vibe to it. Obviously inspired by the french cult scene (Vlad Tepes, Belketre, Mutiilation). Great music and even greater vocals. Lots of amazing falsetto going on here and there.

Avsolutized...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LV7Eh5pkdiA

Black metal band connected to Arkha Sva, but unlike Arkha Sva who's influenced by the french scene, this band is influenced by the swedish scene, especially Setherial whom they also cover.

Ningen-Isu
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLoUY1kA4ZY

These guys formed in 87 and have released 18 full lenghts, some EPs and singles since then. They started out as a progressive rock band more inspired by Rush, Led Zepelin and Deep Purle, but over the years they've moved more towards a doom/heavy metal sound more similar to Black Sabbath but without leaving the progressive rock of Rhsh behind.

Casbah
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OncwKmzfwTI

Early thrash metal with a strong death metal-vibe to it. Their early singles and demos are great.

Terror Squad
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipadglqnrAc

The debut is a crazy punky thrash metal album, while the second is more progressive. This band is amazing, and sadly overlooked. You won't hear anything like this band ever.

Aion
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8dRdtjP8bI

Visual thrash metal, but this time without the nazi iamge (as far as I know). Released a couple of great thrash metal albums before moving into more power metal influenced territory. Released some good power/thrash metal albums before they started to suck as well. By the mid 90's they'd gone from awesome to embarrassing and we do not talk about later Aion.

Gonin-Ish
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWqnofhRSLo

These guys started off as an Anekdoten cover band but only used a few years before evolving into something very unique and original. Extreme progressive metal. All their releases features Junichi Harashima of Sigh behind the drum kit too. Great, underrated drummer.

Hellchild
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYy5AXfW1Oo

Old school death metal with a stong swedish vibe to it. Junichi Harashima played on a few albums for these guys as well.

Multiplex
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwCMW1kglvc

Death/grind with a strong Carbonized and Abhorrence feeling to it. Released one album and some EPs and shit and the album is very good.

Satanic Hellslaughter
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYQdp0gJ0M4

Released one demo and two splits, one of them together with Multiplex and another band. Fairly standard, but great, brutal death metal. The Thrashing Deathpower split with fellow countrymen Multiplex and Gibbed is truly great. All bands deliver music of high quality.

A wise choice, Jiggy.

 

Japan has more goodies to offer:

 

Deathchurch

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJ-ZOSmgYqs

 

Straight-forward grinding black metal. Think Bathory's Under the Sign of the Black Mark meets Darkthrone's Under a Funeral Moon meets Napalm Death's From Enslavement to Obliteration. Raw and brutal.

 

Funeral Moth

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KW0O2x3e_1w

 

Dark, tortured funeral doom in the vein of Worship and Evoken. Good stuff

 

Kanashimi

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=So28qBLJVh4

 

Depressive black metal with hints of doom metal. Enjoyable band

 

Samayoi

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4Z9btblsZQ

 

Another despressive black metal act with O. Misanthropy of Kanashimi.

 

Zombie Ritual

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUm8_5PhdU4

 

Death/thrash in the vein of Ghoul. Very cool band, and I like that all their song title has the word "zombie" in it. Silly as fuck.

 

Gorugoth

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OeESVB0uaNc

 

Raw, lo-fi black metal with great atmosphere and lots of brutality.

 

Hakuja/Funeral Elegy

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Sa2IlFBCww

 

Good, though fairly standard black metal. Always thought this band has a strong finnish vibe to it. Think early Sargeist and mid-era Horna.

 

Hurusoma

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFiBgz7JZuQ

 

Thrashy black metal by Woods of Gnome. This isn't exactly Gnome quality, but it's catchy and it's good.

How is that going far? Death/doom similar to Coffins, Winter, Cianide, Delirium and so on have a lot in common with Celtic Frost, and all these show plenty of Celtic Frost influence in their music. I don't see how it's possible not to mention Celtic Frost a couple of times when talking about bands similar to these.

Millarca

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9EAWLP77M0

 

Great epic doom metal in the vein of early Candlemass and Solstice. The band only released three demo tapes and a split together with Church of Misery, Eternal Elysium and Berenice between 94 and 98, and it's a shame because the demos are incredible.

 

Blind Witch

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SyaecfN0FcM

 

Blind Witch is the band Temis Osmond created after he left Sabbat, and with him he got Elizaveat who played in Sabbat from 84-91 and a couple of other guys. Traditional doom metal. Very charming and good.

 

G.A.T.E.S.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lS9AlGqilI

 

Metal punk with members and ex-members from bands such as Sabbat, Metalucifer, Church of Misery and Magnesium. Think G.I.S.M. meets Motorhead or something like that. The band is cool, but they haven't released too much. Formed in 1999, but they have yet to release a full-lenght. 5 splits, two singles, a demo and a compilation is what they've got so far. But they cool, bro's.

 

Metalucifer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNXz6ZQOR7g

 

Gezol of Sabbat formed Metalucifer as a side-project back in 1996, wanting to play more traditional heavy/speed metal in the vein of Iron Maiden, Saxon, Angel Witch and so on. The whole band evolves around heavy metal cliche's, and with album titles such as Heavy Metal Drill, Heavy Metal Chainsaw and Heavy Metal Bulldozer and song titles such as Heavy Metal is My Way and Heavy Metal Samurai you get what this is all about. Actually, all the 10 songs on Heavy Metal Bulldozer starts with the words "heavy metal". This is that fucking silly. But the music is superb. All three album rules supreme, except for the German version of Heavy Metal Bulldozer with a German line-u. Good, but not as good as the one with the Japanese line-up. Very cool band! Took their name from a Sabbat song as well.

 

The band's got an american tribute band or whatever formed by Chris Black of High Spirits and Pharaoh called Metalusafer as well. Heh.

I'm almost out of good Japanese metal bands to talk bout now, so I'm close to finished. Finally. Heh. And some of the bands mentioned in this post I also mentioned in the japanese punk thread. The work well in both.

 

Effigy

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWwPjTpUN9Y

 

Amazing crusty thrash metal in the vein of old Sacrilege and Amebix. The band was active fom 89 to 07 or something, but only got to release two EPs and a single (which contains the same songs as one of the EPs), so they weren't exactly a productive band. But the band rules supreme, and both Evil Fragments and Fom Hell are must-haves for people into crust and/or thrash metal.

 

S.O.B.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXEi4MLBBLg

 

These guys started out as a hardcore band, but soon evolved into grindcore band who had a massive influence on the grindcore scene throughout the world, and grindcore legends Napalm Death, Brutal Truth and Carcass have all told lots about the influence S.O.B. had on them, Lee Dorian, vocalist on Napalm Death's two first albums, have always been open to how the band borrowed a shitload of S.O.B. riffs for their 1988 masterpiece From Enslavement to Obliteration. Lee Dorian and Shane Embury even went on to play on 1989's Thrash Night EP. Gate of Doom's their most metallic sounding album, being as much death metal as it is grindcore. It's deathier, less intense and consists of longer songs. Their debut album contains 18 songs clocking in at less than 20 minutes, their second album contains 10 songs clocking in at 20 minutes and their third album, Gate of Doom, contains 10 songs clocking in at almost 26 minutes. So yeah, longer songs.

 

Deathpeed

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfaj0zOfSJc

 

Death metal/grindcore with some members from Unholy Grave and Gibbed. Short discography consisting of two demos (one which is an instrumental rehearsal), but the 1988 demo Possessed by Speed is a masterpiece. Brutal, intense and really fucking cool. The Day of Doom comp is totally worth getting if you're into Napalm Death, Terrorizer and Impetigo.

 

Gibbed

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fibu_iGimE

 

Dark, brutal grindcore with members from Unholy Grave, Deathpeed, Voidd, Grudge and other good bands. Brilliant stuff.

 

Unholy Grave

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUBSHEHf4Ew

 

Classic grindcore in the vein of Agathocles and S.O.B. Got 14 full-lenghts in their name, a shitload of EPs and a ridiculous amount of splits. They've gone in a noiser direction in later years, though, but still damn good.

 

Grudge

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdpOgtqpNUU

 

Death/doom in the vein of Coffins and Anatomia with some members of Gibbed. Very cool band.

I wasn't really serious ;) I just don't like Coffins.

 

I'm surprised you didn't mention GOTSU TOTSU KOTSU yet. Basically everything Haruhisa Takahada gets his hands on is awesome in one way or the other. Great Death Metal in the spirit of Bolt Thrower.

I've never really given Gotsu Totsu Kotsu a fair chance. I guess I've played through their first two albums a handful of time combined. I always thought they sounded a lot like old Gorefest, just not close to as good.

 

Mononofu is like the death/thrash version of Gotsu Totsu Kotsu. They evoke much of the same feeling IMO.

 

I also like other bands like Ritual Carnage, King's-Evil, Döraid, Parasite, Birth Ritual, Hellhound, Battlehawk, Volcano, Headlight, Tyrant and more, but they aren't bands that gets much playtime despite having some good music.

 

Gorgon gets plenty of playtime though. Traditional heavy metal with a vocalist that can't sing for shit. Or, he couldn't, but he's improved a lot over the years. He's always got heart though which is what counts. Most people will hate it, but I like it a lot.

 

 

Sacrifice also gets some playtime, especially their debut album. Classic, dark and heavy thrash metal.

Oh yeah that's a good docu. Don't regret I watched this although I had to throw out a lot of those discovered bands afterwards.. I'd say Infernal Revulsion and GxSxD were the best ones presented. The others.. well.. not really worth mentioning besides the fact that they're japanese.
