Holy shit. This is my first time of hearing Yamantaka // Sonic Titan, hailing from Toronto, Canada (originally formed in Montreal). After listening to this new track, One, I went and checked out their release from 2011 — and yup, I fell in love. Needless to say, I have another new release to be überly excited about this fall. Here is the band’s description of their music: “Asian Diasporic psychedelic noh-wave opera group fusing noise, metal, pop and folk music into a multidisciplinary hyper-orientalist cesspool of ‘eastern’ culture in giant monochrome paper sets.” Hell YES.
Their upcoming album Uzu is set to be released October 29, 2013. I. Can. Not. Wait.
The new song is currently available for download:
5. Hall of Mirrors
6. Seasickness Pt. 1
7. Seasickness Pt. 2
8. Bring Me The Hand Of Bloody Benzaiten
10. Saturn’s Return
