In the Red:
THE Japanese power pyche rock metal trio of all time! here's the lineup for this one:
Kawabata Mokoto (Acid Mothers Temple) on guitar; Yoshida Tatsuya (Ruins, Koenjihyakkei, etc.) on drums, and Nanjo Asahito (High Rise, Mainliner) on bass.
This record is called Orthodox Jazz and it's basically sounds like the band has sharpened all their instruments to a point and are slicing open the air around you and letting their audio carnage just bleed and bleed. it's absurdly loud, distorted beyond belief, and frequently jarring in it's power. Some could easily draw lines between Musica Transonic and some of the blasting rock albums of the mighty Boris. It's the kind of rock album that tends to clean the wax out of your ears. Utterly insane.
Released on the heavy PSF label in 1997
