Japanese Metal

 

Japanese metal and its history is incredibly interesting. Uniquely, western bands like Black Sabbath and KISS had a definite impact on the culture. With this in mind, Kevin is connecting the dots on how that early influence lead to Visual Kei. As a result, you’re getting some fantstic music from artists such as X-Japan, Exist-Trace, Vamps, MUCC, Big Bites, Quaff, Dir En Grey, Aldious, and Maximum the Hormone.

We hope you enjoy Japanese Metal – Ep322 and SHARE with a friend!

    Hey DBGeeks, The Japanese Metal episode was killer! I found three new bands I had to go and buy their cds. Marys Blood, Big Bites, Mucc, would have never heard of these bands if it weren’t for this show. Kevin was awesome, I’ve been a fan of Japanese metal for decades, its nice to be turned onto something new. When you cant read or speak Japanese its hard as hell to discover new bands. Another episode of Japanese Metal, please! A fan of Loudness, Dir En Grey, Sigh, EZO, X-Japan, Exist Trace, 44 Magnum, and more, thanks again for opening my ears to some new music!!
