Sex Messiah – Eastern Cult of Sodomy

sex messiah – eastern cult of sodomy

Rarely, we instantly understand Japanese things when they come to us. From their traditions, everyday habits to food and educational system to movies (and especially, Japanese porn). We might be drawn to them because they’re different from what we’re used to, yet we occasionally can’t categorize them, because there’s almost too much of everything in there.

An incredibly good example of that definition is the debut album by Japanese band Sex Messiah. Since this band has been active for over a decade and have a decent amount of shorter releases under their belt, they certainly know how to brew up an interesting mixture of sounds and genres for a really unique release. It might start off with some power electronics but soon it transforms into black metal mixed with some death metal, thrash, crossover and Japanese punk. Some melody in the guitar leads and some experimental parts, some black metal screaming and some old school riffs are added.

Yes, true, there is almost too much of everything in there, but hey, war metal has a tendency to get associated with chaos a lot. But, on the other side ‘Pure originality in the arts is neither different, nor new, it’s merely Chaos.’ (Black Mary)
