Show-Yen biography
Japanese trio SHOW-YEN was formed in 1998, initially consisting of Yasuhiro Nishio (guitars), Naoki Itoi (drums) and Y.H. (bass). As with many bands, it has taken them some time to attain a stable line up. Y. H. left in 2000, initially replaced by K. Y. (bass). Y. H. then returned for a brief spell before Hiroaki Fujii (bass) joined as a permanent member towards the end of the year. The following year Itoi opted out of the band, replaced by Masanobu Tonomura (drums). Itoi returned in 2002, but two years later his second tenure ended, with Isao Mori (drums) as the new man in. This line-up remains active to this day.

Show-Yen appears to first and foremost be a live unit, hitting the stage on regular occasions each year. They have had the chance to release material along the way too. Musea Records issued their self-titled, initial production in 2003 and their second disc II in 2005. The latter was also released in a Japanese version by Poseidon Records the same year. So far this is the most recent of their studio excursions. And while their recording history stops a few years back, Show-Yen continues being a presence in the Japanese live scene, appearing at a handful or so events each year. In 2014, they released their third album on JaProg label.
