A German band creating Japanese-inspired metal is probably one of the most niche musical genres we’ve covered in the five years of GigRadar’s existence.
Tokyo band One Eye Closed not only blend a range of musical genres but also fuse Japanese elements with more Western influences. The result is a captivating combination of rock and djent with hip-hop, R’n’B and electronic elements that they describe as “diverse, emotional and unique.”
Intriguing new Japanese metal band NEMOPHILA offer up an intoxicating yet fierce sound they summarise as “soft and fluffy hell.”
We love discovering new Asian bands, as the cultural and musical influences often make them sound really different from what we’re accustomed to. And that’s exactly the case with Japanese metalcore band Sailing Before The Wind, who fuse delicious melodies with hard-hitting metal.
