Grindcore Band Shapeshifter Release Debut Album – SICK!!! [Japan]

Holy shit…now THIS is what you call a DEBUT! Brand new Japanese grindcore/powerviolence band Shapeshifter have released their debut album out of nowhere! The band features members of Only The Last Song, Heth, Youth Issue, Soiled Hate, Abiuro, and Sans Visage…so OF COURSE it’s going to fucking RULE!!!

Drummer Kou was kind enough to give us further details, “Last year, I was practicing blast beats and d-beats a lot as I was preparing to play drums for Friendship on their UK tour, but sadly the virus cancelled that whole thing.

Then during quarantine, my friend Kajino (the vocalist of Only The Last Song) asked me to join this new band. He’s the guitarist and together we started writing and recording this whole past year. I self-produced and mixed the whole thing and finally, the record is out today! We’re playing our debut show this weekend. and finally we released out first music out yesterday, and playing our first show in this weekend!”
