Post Black Metal Band Asunojokei Release Sophomore Album [Japan]

‘Island’ is Tokyo-based post black metal band, Asunojokei, second full-length album. The album continues with Asunojokei’s blend of Black Metal, Shoegaze, and Post-Rock, creating a beautifully brutal and emotionally atmospheric album. Asunojokei describes the album as an exceptional fusion of J-Pop and Black Metal with ‘summer’ as its theme.

Containing a total of 11 songs, including re-recorded versions of “Chimera” and “From the Bottom of the Biotope”, the album will be reissued on a very limited cassette edition, pressed on professional white-transparent cassette and only available for 100 copies.

The mixing engineers are Lewis Johns [Svalbard and Rolo Tomassi], and Katsuya. The artwork is by Yoco and the typography is by Monami Minase, resulting in pop and emotional artwork which is unusual for a heavy metal band. is an underground Asian music news website created for the sole purpose of supporting our own world.
