Imari Tones : “Nabeshima” CD & Digital 6th June 2021 Sliptrick Records. Japanese progressive Rock / Metal band.
When Japan musicians felt in love with Jesus when it is not their religion, it brings some special albums to conquer the country. With this band it got its fan base mainly outside of the borders. Some Japanese people who love music, became fans and so the community of christian Japanese bands exist. Like most bands who claim their religion through their music, the main important thing is the music opened to the world.
Imari Tones bring us a double album, original cover artwork reminding a bit of the eighties pop with the colors in a simple graphic. One of the album is more Metal when the second one has more Progressive touch. Everyone will find their pleasure. The interesting part is always with Japanese people they use their culture so their music is a mix of belief and history combined into a beautiful piece of creation.
You can read the interview in The Metal Mag to have in depth description of what this band is all about. Their motivation in spreading the world of God indeed gets lyrics like a bible, it will talk to those into religion. For the rest it will just be a good band who plays great music.
Have a listen:
Technics, solos , melodies a complete hard work with music search for the perfect tune. A must have for any Metal Heads who loves those parts that opens the shoul to another dimension, where music becomes a mystery.
Influences ranging from Rush, Dream Theater, Stryper… Imari Tones took years to work this piece of art and put it into amazing artwork for your ears and soul.It is a masterpiece for all to enjoy 100/100.
