Climbing far away from light

(Vampillia is an experimental/hardcore/modern classical band from Japan, describing themselves as a 10 piece “brutal orchestra” and turn classical into hardcore music; the three vocalists are backed by twin guitars and violins, a bass, a viola, a piano and a DJ. Members include recording drummer Toyohito Yoshikawa (ex Boredoms) and Kazuhisa Chikada (world’s end girlfriend) as 2nd drummer.

The Body, the duo of Lee Buford and Chip King continue to defy the constraints of what it means to be a “heavy” band, seamlessly combining composition or production approaches from hip hop, pop, classical, as well as rock and electronica resulting in a rich and utterly singular sound).
