Bloody Panda  


An odd name for an odd band, this mob features a female Japanese vocalist (apparently a visual artist with little if any musical background) backed by a New York metal quartet. Musically, this is sparse, droning funeral doom, impossibly slow and dreary, though like other drone acts not reliant on crushing heaviness. Yoshiko Ohara's vocals are, in a way, a positive, as her semi-tuneless, ethereal style (punctuated by the occasional shriek or moan) is an interesting fit, rather than the extreme death vocals that others in this field might employ. From a listenability standpoint, Bloody Panda is similar to fellow drone-ists such as Khanate, Boris, or Sunn O))), that being that a majority of listeners (even experienced metal fans) will find this just too tedious and slow, but for those that get it, these guys and gal fit the bill.
