I love their first album, but I haven't heard anything else. Any order I should pick up their remaining albums in? Similar bands I might like?

It's best to get the Bondage Fruit albums in chronological order, I think.   And I'd recommend the Happy Family albums to you.

I've only heard the second and fourth albums and liked both. The fourth album gets a lot of love from some people. I think these guys are, next to possibly Ruins, the least "Zeuhl" sounding of the Japanese bands listed here in that sub.

Yeah their second is my favorite. The Fourth is awesome, the third I still need to properly get into. I actually didn't listen to the first one yet.

Thanks for the advice. I'll check out Happy Family as well.

I like Koenjihyyakei, but I wouldn't really consider them similar.

I'll try to pick up the second album soon.

I only have IV and I like it quite a bit. More fusion-y or even a bit Kraut-y than Zeuhl-y.
 
 
You are quite a fine person, and I am very fond of you. But you are only quite a little fellow, in a wide world, after all.

I think most of their albums are really good aside from Skin, which wasn't to my taste.

They grow and develop a LOT between albums so each one is practically an entirely different experience.

The second album is more complexe but sounds similar, the third one (récit) is weird... more experimental, the fourth one is avant-prog... I suggest you to only buy the second one for now, as you can be a tad disapointed with the others because they are different... keep them in mind for a near future.

It will be difficult to find something that tribal and intense... let see

If you wanna try Ruins, go with Hyderomastgroningem, afterward you can try Vrresto, Pallashtom, Tzomborgha (this one is easier to listen imo) and the live album Mandala...Ruins is harder to get into than Bondage Fruit... there 1986-1992 compilation is easier but more agressive. Symphonica is similar to Koenjihyakkei but a tad darker.

Korekyojin - Korekyojin = Yoshida Tatsuya with a bass and a guitar... its avant-prog but intense as well... hard to get in tho

Happy Familly, I have both but the second one (Tosco) sounds nearer to Bondage Fruit imo

Guapo (UK) - Great Sage Equal of Heaven : could be a tad similar, they don't have all the fancy percussions tho

Rahmann - Rahmann : could interest you, with Middle Eastern Influences

Yolk (France)... I havent listened to this but I plan to buy,  just reading the review

Orioxy = a lot of world influences orient meet occident, this is not zeuhl nor avant-prog but if you have liked the influences in Bondage you might like this band. Mégamorphose is their best imo

Thibault, Laurent - Mais on Ne Peut Pas Rever Tout le Temps... I'm starting to run out of titles... intense in a way, mindblowing in another way... with some canterbury influences... nature sounds, no electrical instrument.

other bands that might have some similar sounds : Far Corner, Sotos, François Thollot and his new band Sherzoo... 


hope that help you
