Butcher ABC, Flagitious Idiosyncrazy In The Dilapidation at OEF, Speed!! Noise!! Hell!! & Birushanah at Fluff Fest… Japan is pretty hype this year, what do you think?
Kuzuha: I guess it’s good thing.
It is like open a lot of doors for Japanese extreme music scene, but it not necessarily means the number of Japanese grindcore fans will be increase Haha.
Kubine: I think so too. It is so cool many Japanese bands will tour overseas, and also many good overseas bands tour in Japan!
My friends, WORLD END MAN, COFFINS and END ALL will tour Europe soon too. Please check them out!
Which bands do you like the most at the moment and people should listen to?
Jiro: My favorite band is YxAxD from Nagano. They are so fast and awesome!
Kuzuha: There are many good bands in Japan, and I don’t know all the band in Japan….
So there is some bias maybe, but I must say current lineup of SYSTEMATIC DEATH is awesome.
My favorite bands in Japan are FIGHT IT OUT and SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY, and in overseas, CAVESTATE and CRYPTIC VOID.
CRASH SYNDROM and SHINDA SAIBOU NO KATAMARI are both great and new bands in Japanese underground scene.
Recently I always listen old band and Soul/Funk Stuff.
Kubine: Recently I listen Mike Patton stuff especially the Dillinger Escape Plan, Mr.Bungle and DEAD CROSS. It’s a little late, right? But I’ve never listen his stuff except for Dillinger until recently. His vocal is amazing and inspiring!
My favorite bands in Japanese underground scene are SHIKABANE, KNUCLEHEAD, SWARRM, ENDON, MOTIVELESS, ZAGIO EHVA DILEDJ, SYSTEMATIC DEATH, RED RAN AMBER, BUTCHER ABC, COFFINS, NOLA….and many many more!
