Birushanah are a band from Japan that plays a mixture of experimental, tribal, sludge, doom metal and post hardcore and this is a review of their 2015 album "Makyo" which was released by SuperFi Records.
Japanese folk music sounds start off the album along with some tribal beats a few seconds later before adding in clean yet distorted guitars and after a few minutes the music starts getting more heavy and melodic along with some aggressive yet melodic vocals and the riffs mix in the heaviness of sludge metal.
Most of the tracks a re very long and epic in length and the solos and leads bring in more of a melodic style when they are utilized and the songs also mix the tribal and heavy parts together which also gives the recording more of an experimental and avant garde feeling and there is also a brief use of blast beats and the music also speeds up on the last track.
Birushanah plays a musical style that takes experimental and tribal and mixes it with doom and sludge metal along with a touch of post hardcore to create a style of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Japanese and cover Shintoism and Buddhism themes.
In my opinion Birushanah are a very great sounding experimental mixture of tribal, sludge, doom metal and post hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sharin" and "Kagami". 8 out of 10.
