PROG REVIEWER
4 stars The fan with the impression called the band with the element of symphonic is a main current exists in Prog Rock of Japan. It is guessed that it corresponds as the reason at time when Prog Rock of Europe took root to some degree in Japan as a result.

However, music is an expansion of the market by the spread and the re-sale of CD. Or, there might be an influence by the strategy of the company to which the band belongs, too. The musician who was able to find the method of the expression by an original interpretation by absorbing some material and the influence from another country for circumstances of the music of Japan in recent years guesses that it is possible to advance to groping and the announcement of a high-quality music character as a result.

Japan..item..locate..band..some..exist..this..band..derive..Music..still..Japan..special..class..ent er.It might be music that can be taken no notice if it considers it from the point of the acknowledgment level including them. However, it is true to connect Prod Rock of Japan with revitalization by their existence.

It feels it in these albums of them announced in 2004 including power and an intellectual part. Recently, the technology of the performance has improved to Prog Rock of Japan compared with before. It is thought one of the bands that can tell the possibility as Trio enough with some technology and knowledge.

The band is performed by organizing the guitar, Bass, and the drum. Guitar that loves Jimi Hendrix. And, Bass that loves Percy Jones. And, it drums by love of Vinnie Colaiuta. These elements unite indeed splendidly and expand the possibility as Trio further. It is understood that the root of their music appears remarkably in this work. The listener might imagine the music of "Karizma" and Jimi in the item of Jazz Rock/Fusion if it thinks from other respects. However, the impression that shows deference to Life Time of Tony Williams by using the play of the word of "Emergency" , for example, "Jemah&She" of the first title is given to the listener. The entire composition has finished ..Music being done for devise do not end because of a simple lock though it has the flow of the blues-rock and Jazz Rock...

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Metal and Heavy Prog Teams
3 stars Japanese heavy-fusion rockers Bandvivil present a large number of ideas in their only (so far at least) two-part album Junaokissei of 2004. In total, we deal with almost 70 minutes of music based clearly on improvisation, laid through 16 tracks - which gives an average duration of less than 4.5 minutes; not bad for those looking for multiple expressions of jazz/fusion rock.

With two 'sides' (''Vivid'' and ''Evil'') but no specific change in 'concept', the 16 instrumental tracks tend to be based on a main theme which then gets stretched and elongated via continuous improvisation. A good description of their sound could be a type of free jazz-fusion tuned to heavy progressive forms for the majority of the album. There are exceptions here where they base their main ideas either on purely blues (Eat Triplet) or jazz-blues (San-Byou-Shi). Dominant is the use of semi-distorted guitars with harmonies and methodologies reminding strongly of Rush (not surprisingly, there is a track called To King Rush); this, with the addition of rocking rhythms constitute a considerable percentage of the tracks here, which, nevertheless, maintain a strong heavy fusion character, rightly put into this sub-genre of Progarchives.

The band does not lack ideas and technical prowess but the relentless improvisation along with the very long duration of the album does not give justice to their efforts and may tire the demanding listener, rendering this a good album with some exciting highlights, rather than a cohesive all-around top-level result. For those who like their jazz-rock fusion extended, full of experimentation and certainly on heavy rock/heavy prog foundations, then Junaokissei is for you - as a guide I would suggest the highlights Afro, Seven Spices and Zoo Zoo Da Juju.

4 stars For me one of the most wonderful discoveries in Japanese hard rock scene! BANDVIVIL, formed in 1993, is a three-piece outfit featuring Issei Takami, a great guitarist and the leader. The formation is indeed very simple, with a guitarist, a bassist, and a drummer. But their power should be b ... (read more)
