KANDARIVAS x Asakusa Deathfest 2019
Formed in 2015 and hailing from Kanda city, the hometown of the band leader Tomoki, KANDARIVAS is an experimental Grind outfit that utilizes traditional Japanese Taiko drums to express the sense of "duty and sentiment" which has defined the cultures of Kanda and Tokyo's downtown area. While performing over 50 gigs a year in their home country, KANDARIVAS has maintained close ties with Indonesia, a country famous for its extreme music scene, and have already completed five successful tours there.
Furthermore, KANDARIVAS periodically organizes the Japanese edition of Jakarta's extreme music festival "EVERLOUD" in Tokyo, further deepening ties between the two countries' underground scenes.Their various releases have been praised by fans and critics from not only Japan, but all over the world as well.
Finally, KANDARIVAS are making their first appearance at Asakusa Deathfest and will be performing tunes from their latest album "Grind Surgical Shrine", which is slated to be released on Obliteration Records later this year.
KANDARIVAS carries their offerings of Grind on the Mikoshi (portable shrines seen at Japanese festivals) from their home turf to ASAKUSA and beyond this year!
