Birushanah - Makyo 2xLP
Hailing from Japan, Birushanah work somewhere between doom and post-hardcore, using a guitar / voice / drums framework augmented by trash percussion sounds. They spin song lengths out to a dizzying extent and somehow intermingle a recognisably traditional, tribal bent to the melodies and progressions without sounding like complete and utter novelty prog nonsense. A unique, special band. "Makyo" is their 4th album. This is the vinyl version of the CD released in Japan on Scumzone.
