Amazing sound and voice! One of best rock band in my humble opinion...

332 JKN
333 Love
334 Hi-Fi CAMP
335 Blues Creation

A late 60s/early 70s blues-rock band, with quite a psych sound in parts, a bit like Black Sabbath. They had a couple of albums, but their most famous is Demon And Eleven Children. Very raw sounding, with minimum overdubs, but some dead heavy riffs in there.

336 Flower Travellin' Band
337 Church of Misery

Incredibly loud and brutal doom metal band, definitely influenced by a lot of 70s bands though so have quite a bluesy feel behind the noise. Their songs are about serial killers and mass-murderers. The first album I heard was Houses Of The Unholy and I immediately then purchased everything they'd ever done. I'm not sure if they'd be classified as j-rock though as they are on a European label (RiseAbove), but they are from Tokyo. They are the only band who's music genuinely makes the cables come out of the back of my speakers due to the noise. But it's good noise.

338 Fear From the Hate

The guys of Japanese Electronic Post-hardcore with their album 'Birthday of 12 Questions' being a great achievement and heavy breakdowns. - hitsuxx

They have a style similar to Fear and loathing in Las Vegas. The vocalist's voice is cool.
