Album Notes
God of Shamisen is the world\'s first rock band featuring the
Tsugaru-Shamisen, a traditional Japanese stringed instrument. East meets
West in their
debut CD: DRAGON STRING ATTACK, combining the ferocity of a
progressive-metal band with elements of funk, surf, industrial, and world
music .

Awesome Album of the Week.
\"If you’re into the fusion of metal with traditional Japanese music (and who isn’t?), pick up Dragon String Attack by God of Shamisen. Shamisen master and Estradasphere member Kevin Kmetz leads the group with his acrobatic finger work on the fretless Japanese instrument, infusing said sounds with any other genre that feels appropriate (reggae, Gypsy, jam rock, funk). The shredding riffs of guitarist Karl Schnaitter and the detonating beats of fellow Estradasphere cohort Lee Smith also propel the band, which you know will be good given that two of Kmetz’s listed influences are ultra-heavy death metallers Cryptopsy and classical legend J.S. Bach.\"

All that I expected is on this cd! Lots of great Shamisen/metal guitar riffs, the drum touch of Lee and eclectism.

A must have for the Estradasphere-like fans.

Thanks for making music!
