ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Teaming up with producer Billy Anderson, God of Shamisen returns with Smoke Monster Attack, their second album. Featuring some new tunes along with some interesting video game cover songs, the band is back to its genre-bending ways. Featuring Kevin Kmetz on the Japanese shamisen, Karl Schnaitter on guitar, Mark Thornton on bass, and Lee Smith from the band Estradasphere on drums. The band goes all over the place, from an aggressive new arrangement of the traditional "Jongara Bushi," to the Indian-inspired mellow breakdowns of "Last Shamisen Master Attack," to a wild metal cover of the "Star Wars" theme. The album is only available digitally, and features guest musicians Rick Walker (percussion), Rich Doucette (sarangi) and Takemi Hirohara (shamisen on "Tiger Feint Attack"). This album is dedicated to Owen Hart.
