Loud heavy Metal from Japan at Japan Underground

Our friends at Japan Underground are back again, this time with a very heavy live act from Kobe, Brain Death Zombie and live noise act Umez.  Tom will be DJ'ing, dropping plenty of heavy Japanese tracks.  As you probably figure this is a social event rather than a language exchange.  Here are the details:

When: Saturday 12 January 2013 from 7pm.
Where: The Pipeline, 94 Middlesex Street, E1 7DA.
Tickets: £6 (http://www.wegottickets.com/event/201100)

Come and join us celebrate a new year in the only way we know how – with loud, heavy metal from Japan! On Saturday 12 January, Japan Underground will once again takeover Liverpool Street’s punk bar The Pipeline for a night of distorted debauchery, featuring two live acts from the east.

Headlining the night is Kobe metal outfit BRAIN DEATH ZOMBIE, unleashing their aggressive and haunting sound for the first time outside of Japan. The quintet is heavily inspired by the likes of Korn, Slipknot and Japan’s own Dir en Grey. If you’re a fan of the latter, we recommend you check out BRAIN DEATH ZOMBIE’s tracks HATEFUL HEAVY PRESSURE and Nun, available along with the rest of their EP from their Soundcloud and homepage. Be warned, with their mixture of thunderous guitars, spine snapping samples and haunting vocals, this is one group not for the faint-hearted.

London-based Japanese noise-duo Umez will also make their return to Japan Underground. The pair previously opened for TOQUIWA‘s headline show in November. They clash two contrasting genres together to create a unique sound, combining elements of J-pop and avant-garde noise. The unit is formed by members from the Japanese all-girl group No Cars, and indie rockers Screaming Tea Party.

PLUS! Japan Underground’s resident DJ, music journalist and JPU Records’ owner Tom Smith, will supply track-after-track from Japan’s hardcore, metal, punk and heavy rock scenes. If it’s not got loud guitars, thunderous drums or brutal breakdown, it’s not getting played. Come along, rock out, discover a whole new world of Japanese music.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
