Qujaku released limited 200 EP

The thing is out! And we can listen to the second track ‘In Neutral’ too, wich is filled with psychedelic sax. Tune in and enjoy the one of the best Japanese bands. You can also read under the video about how much i love Qujako and listen to their other music.

I have been rambling a lot in the past three years about the Japanese band Qujaku. The Hamamatsu-based Japanese band has become one of my favorite acts and not without reason, since they formed in 2013 they have released amazing music. In  2015 came their debut ‘ZyouK’ and they toured UK, Germany and Hungary, followed by a release of an EP, “KEIREN”. In 2017, they released an EP “H” and toured with 26 shows over Europe. In 2018 came their latest album ‘Qujaku’ wich immediatly became one of my favorite for 2018.

Qujaku is difficult to classify, they draw influence from Japanese legends like Keiji Haino and the mystical Les Reallizes Denudes, But that is not it, they have created their very own sound, a sound that can be so delicate and intricate and with the perfect transition they can shift to brutal riffs mixed with noise and agressive drumming. The soft vocals seem to fit in perfectly in either the extreme heavy parts as in the soft bits. Equal parts psychedelic as doom and noise, Qujaku as a refreshing and original take on modern heavy music.

Now enough blabbering! Their new EP ‘In Neutral’ will be released in limited print. their we be 200 EPs released and we can expect them on 26th of July on the So I Buried label. Now they shared their first track from that EP called ‘Gloria’. Again we can hear the band with their specific dark sound constantly on the verge of exploding. A gorgeous track from a band that needs to be heard, needs to be shared!

The band will tour again (and i will have the opportunity too see them again) and you will have to see them too if possible because they are an absolute force live.

Qujaku release video for “Yui, Hate No Romance”

I have become quite a Qujaku nerd this year. I am a big fan and i will not hide it. The Japanese band released their full length this year and it is even more gorgeous then I hoped it would be. With a unique mix of doom, noise rock and psych the Japanese band are one of my favorite acts in a long time.
They released a new video for the track “Yui, Hate No Romance”.  Check out there new vid here.

Next to their original sound and complex music Qujaku has a very strong live act, so if you got the chance you got the see them live. While you’re here, check out  the track “Shoku No hakume”.
The video “Mei” is from their previous EP and one of my favorite tracks of the band. The tension on the track is beyond.

A while ago you could buy the LP on Norman records but it’s sold out at the moment. If there will be more you will need to by this.

New music by Japanese noisy psych rockers Qujaku

Qujaku is  a Japanese psych/noiserock band that interested me right from the start. The sound of Qujaku is original, heavy and  and influenced by Les Rallizes desnudes and Kenji Haino. In moments the vocals are soft and filled with tension building to violent explosions. You can hear traces of doom, psych and noise throughout their discography.
So you can understand my joy when i heard they are going to release a full album, coming to Europe (10 minutes from my home!) and released the first track.
Their first selftitled album will have a 500 limited double 12 inch vinyl.
The first track ‘Shoku No Hakumei’ is a perfect example of what this band is capable of. After the gothic intro the soft voice tunes in only to explode in a dark doom track, the 20 minute track getting louder and more violent in the end.
I have been hooked on the track ‘MEI’ from their latest EP ‘S’ for about six months. A gorgeous balance between the vocals and the heaviness.

Beautiful chaos on new track by Japanese band Qujaku

A while ago I found some music by this Japanese noise rock band Qujaku. They really have a way to blend different genres together in one nice noisy song. I knew i was really amazed by their music back then. I forgot about them and now there is new music! and a video clip! Watch and enjoy the track “MEI” for their upcoming second EP.
