Crow's Claw

Doujin ftw! Taka the man behind sure has excellent drum programming skills as Pizuya said to me. I really like how this song is balanced. Pure doujin metal so you already know what to expect.

Save The Queen

This is the circle with the most famous member Shibiki from Blood Stain Child. I knew he was into this kind of stuff but for some reason I have missed this part of his career. Good quality touhou with very interesting vocalist in this arrangement.

Saber Tiger

I had to learn a lesson from J-Metal today. When clicked link to Saber Tiger song I tought this is the same band hide played. But it was different band from Sapporo even genre is quite close to the hide's band. Yes I should have known that there is another band with the same name but I'm lucky I now know this band too.

The song I Introduce here is from early 90's and I have to say that they is amazing in every aspect. Something that I really need to get into my hand on a real CD.

Here is another great progressive technical song. Vocals are not perfect but this was before autotune and its better this way. Akihito Kinoshita, you're TENSAI!

And for last words. Got to respect any band making music for over 25 years. They are still active and rocking hard!

Afterzero says that they plays Progressive Extreme Pure Metal. I think its quite accurate. Definately pure metal, not artificial additions like keyboards. Unfortunately I don't find them very progressive. At least drumming soudn quite straight for me but it isn't bad at all.

I didn't find much information on this band. They have started in 2005 and had some member changes played gigs and released few demos and the first album in August 2010. From Audioleaf I got informatipon that they are from Tokyo. Anyway pure metal from Japan!

Shatter Silence

They have played melodic core metal from 2008. On more band from Osaka so it seems that metal scene is very active there!

Also interesting news from Inhale camp. They have updated new song to their audioleaf site with new vocalist Jeff's singing. Really good song and must to check. Inhale has gained level up which is impressive to any band being already so good.

Its nice feeling to find a new interesting band but this time feeling was different. Of course there are pagan/fol metal band in Japan. Still I was suprised. Most Japanese bands have "J-vibe" in their music but Bellfast sounded like a band from Europe! They sound so different from any other J-metal band I've heard so far in my life. Nice guitar solos are good addition for the music.

Serpent is (was) quite typical melodic death metal band. Even its typical it also means it really good in the genre. I like melodies and Serpent is strong with melodies. Its very sad that they disbanded but the guitarist Ken does have a new band called Veiled In Scarlet which sounds really promising! There is one really cool demo song available at their myspace: Veiled In Scarlet There was also news telling that their debut CD is now half ready and release might be summer 2011!

But back to Serpent. This is their song Plastic Arts:

Jigoku Quartet

This is just awesome thrashy technical metal! They reminds just little bit Sex Machineguns but are much harder and heavier. But even some vibes from various genres and bands they are very unique with their cool own sound. Jigoku Quartet consist very good musicians and extremely good vocalist. Amazing! Guitarist seems to be that dude with the guitar book (jigokuno mechanical training) that I've read many times about. That explains the high level skills. Other members seems to be very experienced too since bands like Aion, Canta, Kuroyume, Animetal pops up from their music career.

I wish I could have embedded the song Tsumi To Batsu No Sen but you have to stick with this or find other songs from youtube. But this is cool too and has a bass solo (O_o) too:
