Yamantaka // Sonic Titan “YT//ST”

November 13, 2011

Ha. Every time I see “noh wave” I giggle. But that is what they call this stuff. Proof that modern Japanese music doesn’t have to be J-pop, these guys gives us weird, brooding dream pop with progressive chords. “Queens” is like Cocteau Twins if they did prog rock.
“Reversal Crystal//Murder of a Spider” is very proggy. Good stuff for progtologists everywhere. (That’s keyword density right there, folks.) The other track I like is “A Star Over Pureland.” Wailing guitar and wailing vocals for your wailing souls. This song hits you like a shark attack. There’s not a lot of selling here. You’re either into that opera/prog sound or you’re not.
