Get ready for a night of mayhem in the company of some of Japan's finest rockers. Japan Underground has finally finished mopping up the sweat from our last hard rock party, which featured one of east's finest post-hardcore artists, FACT (check out this video for a glimpse of what went down that night). Now we're back with a showcase set featuring THREE rock acts that we guarantee will melt your mind. Plus our usual DJ piling on the rockiest, heaviest and all out coolest tracks from Japan for your pleasure.
Just get a load of this line-up:
BRAIN DEATH ZOMBIE:
To weigh down our rock, we have called upon Kobe's newest metal outfit BRAIN DEATH ZOMBIE. Looming from the shadows of doom metal, and inspired from the likes of Korn, SCREW, DIR EN GREY and alt. noise makers Pay money To my pain, this band bring a unique, artist and deeply haunting edge to the evening's proceedings. Here's a preview clip we used for their first ever overseas show earlier in the year.
TAIGEN KAWABE (FROM BO NINGEN):
When he's not fronting one of the hottest names in psychedelic rock, Bo Ningen, Taigen Kawabe is busy crafting music on his own. Armed with a bass, impressively long hair and an effect pedal, he becomes a one man army of mind melting sound. Some have likened his solo work to a spiritual experience. So fittingly, here's a video of his band in action. In a church. Taigen Kawabe, we're not worthy.
Bringing the 80s back! London-based Japanese rock outfit COLORS that borrows influences from many genres of music. It's front man Kenji loves British punk, new wave and old skool visual kei, while other members take inspiration from heavy metal, pop and even a bit of a good old drum 'n' bass. They recorded their first music video last year, get your leathers out and have a gander.
