Song of the Day

Rashōmon, “ 死体症候群” (2017)

I'm not sure how to accurately describe what Rashōmon are doing on "死体症候群." The new DC-based band's demo track is driven by a couple of slinky guitar riffs that slither about like something from a long-lost B-52's song, if they listened to Die Kreuzen instead of surf music. Rashōmon frontman Kohei has a screamy delivery that is more in line with traditional hardcore, and the combination of his vocals with the melodic guitar lines is especially effective.

Rashōmon are playing shows up and down the Eastern Seaboard, so if any of you happen to catch them live, please report back here.
