Origin: Japan
Genres:

Kadenzza  


This is an odd find, a one-man Japanese project playing (quoting the record label) "orchestral kamikaze metal". Certainly not sounding like anything else from Japan (or, for that matter, anywhere else), Kadenzza's style is ambitious and diverse, and while orchestral metal doesn't fully describe this band, it's a good start at least. There's plenty on display here, from a healthy dose of guitar wizardry to pianos and keyboards and various vocal effects, along with effectively programmed drums. Some might note the programming and samples and put this band in the industrial category, which seems misleading, though that aspect is a part of the sound. This is quite an original project, and for the metal fan in search of something different, an excellent prospect.
