JAPANESE SAMURAI METAL UNIT RYUJIN RELEASES HEAVIEST SINGLE YET, "GEKOKUJO"


New Samurai metal band RYUJIN deftly deliver heavy metal and blazing guitar wizardry from Japan with their self-titled Napalm Records debut, RYUJIN, set for release on January 12, 2024.


Today, the band is thrilled to share their heaviest, fastest, folk-infused burner yet, entitled "Gekokujo", alongside an intense, high production value music video. The track explores shades of death metal, thrash, and folk influence, colliding as a riff-fest of head-spinning technique!


RYUJIN frontman and mastermind Ryoji Shinomoto explains, "In Japanese history, gekokujo refers to the act of a lower-ranking person politically or militarily overthrowing a higher-ranking person, violating the social order, and seizing power.

 

I would say the song is Japanese horror folk metal. The music video also depicts Japan's unique horror. Enjoy the dark side of RYUJIN too!"
