While Japanese ambient is a common feature of this blog, Japanese black metal is a little more of a rarity.
Which is especially absurd when you take into account Sigh – Japan’s leading weird black metal band for the past 25 years and who, on their last album, brewed up a particularly spellbinding BM take on the music of 20JFG faves Goblin and Fabio Frizzi!
“The biggest inspiration on this album is 70s / 80s Italian zombie flicks,” singer Mirai Kawashima told No Clean Singing blog. “At first I was planning to make it filled with old keyboards like Minimoog, Mellotron, Hammond, Fender Rhodes etc., as a dedication to those movies. The final result was pretty much different from the initial plan, but I think you still sense the atmosphere of zombie movies.”
