Ryorchestra biography
A Japanese project RYORCHESTRA have been founded in 2006 by Ryoko ONO and a couple of Zeuhlers around Nagoya and gigged on lots of stages ... Ryoko says their activity looks slow but steady actually. In 2018 their debut studio-based album "DMK" saw the light, in collaboration with some session musicians finally, and already they have gone ahead for the following material.

4 stars Such a crazy powerful sound shower should blow depressive mode out although it's raining heavily today. A mysterious musical commune RYORCHESTRA were founded around Nagoya, Japan by a saxophonist / flutist Ryoko ONO and her rockmates in 2006 "without any strong intention" and they've had serious development "slowly but step by step". The album "DMK" has been released in June, 2018 as their debut studio-based album, that is definitely filled with Ryoko's massive sentiment and attractive soundscape (anyway via this album we can hardly hear her saxophone play except in the first track "Evison" surprisingly ... suppose she's done her best as their "basis under the stage"). Honest to say, the six talented artists have got fantastically unified and fascinatingly harmonized upon the brilliant disc due to her "basis", just like a great marriage of unique cuisine and special alcoholic beverage. Melody lines sound quite improvisational and rhythmic basis incredibly complicated, but they play in perfect order and quite in natural. What an amazement.

Needless to say, we can hear not only Zeuhlic impression and expression via Sayaka's clear voices but also distorted deathcore testaments by Daijiro (a tad outside though). No suspicion they've got hugely inspired by Magma, the Cobaian Gods. Yes their voices always work as percussive monument along with the splendid, sincerely precise rhythmic basis by Nobukazu and Atsutomo. And it's our comfort there are lots of sound appearances all around. The second track "Zo Vie Terezzo" has impressive thrash metallic guitar explosion by Yasuhiro and Yuji. Through "Laura Palmer" classical keyboard drops are dancing with loud punksy anarchy instrumental infringement. Momentarily relaxed with beautiful, delightful flute experiment by Ryoko in "Glossolalia". On the contrary, the former part of "Night Song" has apparent fruitful, elegant but depressive, dangerous flavour overall ... just like a hunch of the latter, violent paragraph. Somewhat ethnic nuance can be touched here and there, that surely differs from the French Giant.

We can simply enjoy this album, as a delicious daily bottle of wine or lunch in the home garden. Let me say bravo for Ryoko (the sleeve etiquette by her is superb too!) and her friends. Cannot wait for their next creation (now under construction they say) that would be more and more exciting I'm sure.

Thanks to dAmOxT7942 for the artist addition. and to dAmOxT7942 for the last updates
