Takeomi is the globe-trotting Tokyo-based artist behind the Far East Ghost project who embodies the Japanese psychedelic sound through his deep yet hardcore music production.
After releasing his debut album "Welcome to Psychedelic Hell" in spring 2007 from Trip Records, he completed a smashing Japan tour, joined Triplag Music and Kabrathor records as an official label artist, and blitzed through a successful European tour in the winter of that same year.
In addition Takeomi has contributed to releases from Manic Dragon, Kagdila Records, Amibivalent Records, Last Possible Solution and a number of other leading international and domestic labels.
He has been working on collaborations with acclaimed Japanese artists Savage Scream as Diablos and with Noise Gust as Mephisto and is scheduled to release a triple split album including Diablos, Mephisto, and Baal, titled "Lords of Destruction" from Triplag Music in September 2008.
On another front, he has been active in a number of other projects, including the rock-psychedelic trance fusion project "Zeta" featuring Marty Friedman (ex-guitarist of Megadeth/Lovefixer), and has been showcasing his multifaceted talents by contributing to the soundtrack of Ryuhei Kitamura's film "Versus", and to the production of Marty Friedman's solo album.
