Aborted, System Divide @Tokyo
Aborted, System Divide, Devour the Martyr and 5 other bands are invited by the Verlay brothers and Chaotic Tapestry to stir up the Japanese capital. It’s the underground small venue of the “Wild Side” in Shinjuku which hosts the hostilities, not without difficulty, as the crowd can barely fit in the place, which quickly gets very hot, confering an infernal and intimist ambience.

Deals Death, Bloodshot Dawn
Bloodshot Dawn and Deals Death, two promising European bands are ending their very first Japanese tour on this Sunday evening, before taking off back home on the following day, and after a grueling week playing all over the country. They were accompanied by some local bands among which are their partners in crime for the night: Hemorrhoid Carnage, Ogre and Serenity in Murder.
Between the Buried and Me, Animals As Leaders
Two of the top american technical progressive death metal scene, namely Between the Buried and Me and Animals as Leaders, do us the honor of coming to Japan among their tour in the pacific area, followed by a few dates in New Zealand and then Australia. Taking this occasion, Metalship meets Paul and Dan, the two restless and talented guitarists of Between the Buried and Me, just before the live begins, for an interview where the two mates, very chatty, talk about their music and concept, their last album in two parts, and of course, their near future.
The two bands play this Sunday evening their last date in Japan for this tour, in Kichijoji’s “Club Seat A” in western Tokyo, with three Japanese bands for the opening. We unfortunately miss the first band, Arise in Stability, that plays while we interview BTBAM.
