GATE x Asakusa Deathfest 2018

GATE x Asakusa Deathfest 2018

Formed in 1999 as a 3-piece Grindcore band, GATE unleashed emotionless and relentless blastbeats with cold hateful vomited vocals over razor sharp riffage.
With a lineup change in 2015, Murata from Cyber-Grindcore band DEATHCOUNT and Ishiguro who plays in many extreme metal bands both joined the GATE. 
This lead to GATE's brutality becoming even more merciless than before.

GORE INFAMOUS x Asaskusa Deathfest 2018

GORE INFAMOUS x Asaskusa Deathfest 2018

South Asian Brutal Death Metal act Gore Infamous formed in Indonesia in 2010 where old-school brutalizers JASAD also hail from. 
At the time, bassist Freddy used to play with his younger brother Reduan as Demigod, but they split up due to personal reasons.
Freddy left Demigod and moved to Gore Infamous. Wawan, the former bassist switched to drums and the current lineup was set. 
They've got similar ideas with a very complex sound that is characterized by Indonesian blast-beats influenced by Bloody Gore and Dirty Infamous.
Gore Infamous features grotesque visuals, complete with masks, and a brutal sound that reminds the listener of The Berzerker and Ghoul who popularized similar imagery worldwide. 
The band has played at many large festivals and also appeared on the lineup of HELLPRINT UNITED DAY , which is the most famous Indonesian Metal festival. 
Finally, Gore Infamous will bring their brutality and grotesquerie to Japan because they have been confirmed to play at ASAKUSA DEATHFEST 2018!!

Jasadのお膝元インドネシアのバンドンで2010年に結成。当時(現Gore  Infamousベーシスト) Freddyは実の弟ReduanとDemigodを結成していたが、各メンバーの諸事情によりDemigodを離脱。
兄のFreddyはそのままGore Infamousへ、弟ReduanはJasadへ加入し現在に至る。また、同時に当時Gore Infamousでベーシストを務めていたWawanがドラムの位置に就き現在のパートは固定されている。
バンド名の由来の一部となったインドネシアンデスメタルの重鎮Bloddy Goreに言わずもがな激しい影響を受け、初見では解析不能な程の複雑で変則的なリフ、音の数、そしてインドネシア特有の高速ブラストビートを有し、グロテスクな覆面に身を包んだヴィジュアルと残虐なサウンドでJasadと同じくデスメタル大国インドネシア全土はもちろん海外のデスメタルヘッズからも絶大な人気を博す存在となっている。
数々のビッグフェスに出演し、ついに昨年インドネシアで最も有名なメタルフェスHELLPRINT UNITED DAYに出演を果たす。
そして満を持してついにASAKUSA DEATHFEST 2018に出演決定!

THE MEN’S TOILET x Asakusa Deathfest 2018

Vomited forth from the bowels of dismemberment come to Asakusa the rancorous contemptors of purulogenic detruncation, unfortunately monikered grinding death metal forensologists, THE MEN’S TOILET.  Our ignominious auteurs recompile the standard offcuts from grind core’s staid repetoire of a begone era the infection from whence they were wholly unimparted, at the same time choking back any seepage of originality from defouling the sterilized slab.  Comporting remains of the dearly departed with a feverish consumption to wash sanguineous waves of destructive infinity over crepitated cadavers, THE MEN’S TOILET arrives at Asakusa’s execrable cenotaph soon to be unleashed...upon mankind...

天も届かぬ深淵から米産蛆の巣、THE MEN’S TOILETは荒廃の地、浅草に腐敗する。
腐乱した死体の山の中から飛び立たんとする恐るべき天使たちよ... 出口なきゆえ逃げられぬ、今こそ戦いの時。
