California’s sludge metal gods, Black Cobra, are heading to Japan in the fall. I’m not sure with whom they will be playing with besides Coffins on the 27th, but no doubt, they will be touring with some heavy bands.

Also, the times on their MySpace may be incorrect. 8pm is kind of a late start, so I would shoot for around 6pm or 6:30.

I had the pleasure of seeing Osaka’s Ha-Gakure play with envy last March and I was totally blown away. Actually, I don’t know how to define the style of music these four talented guys play. I’m not one to pigeonhole bands into strict categories, but for the purpose of tagging this post, I find myself coming up short. Their instrumentation is not too far removed from post-rock, but their vocalist (or MC as the band defines his role as), Yasuhide Takayama, raps(?) over the band. Yeah, I know that sounds weird. Perhaps borderline unpleasant. Honestly, my words cannot do this band justice so just go to their myspace. I highly recommend this band, especially to fans of the recent split releases from envy.
