Ready for something wildly different?
Let me introduce you to Yousei Teikoku (who also go by the name Das Feenreich).
The five-piece Japanese band formed in 1997, and are known for their mix of gothic rock and electronic music. Emanating elements of Evanescence, Lacuna Coil and Babymetal, their frenetic sound is unclassifiable, yet strangely addictive.
New track ‘Autoscopy’ starts with choral chants, backed up by a roaring guitar, and it quickly transforms into an anime-tinged hellscape.
I wouldn’t consider myself well-versed with Japanese metal, but if this is anything to go by, I’m very much on board. Sign me up!
