Pretpostavljam da je vecina ljudi sa ovog dela foruma upoznata sa radom ovog benda iz Cikaga, a za one koji nisu radi se o...pa hajde da probam da ih definisem kao neki jazz-core, ali imaju i nekih atmospheric/doom uticaja(kad smo kod tih uticaja mene po tome malko podsecaju na post-metal( bendove kao Isis, Cult of Luna i sl.), a takodje u svojoj muzici imaju i instrumente poput saksofona i klarineta. Ima i nekih, pa hajde da kazem orijentalnih uticaja na momente(na pocetku nekih pesama). Ako vam se ne svidja kako sam ih opisao, izvinjavam se, ovo je moje vidjenje benda :opusteno:






* Amount to Nothing (2001)

* Way of the Dead (2002), Century Media Records

* Samsara (2006), Prosthetic Records

* Transmutations (2007), Prosthetic Records


Svi albumi su super, ali ja najvise slusam poslednja dva(Samsara i Transmutations)...


With high praise from the metal press, local and national newspapers, and highbrow publications alike, Chicago’s YAKUZA has succeeded in garnering attention of all kinds, all the while not compromising the band’s free-flowing and spontaneous musical integrity. Regardless, YAKUZA remains independent, maintaining an almost indescribable sound that picks and plucks from a wealth of influences and inspirations.


Staying deeply rooted in a genre all its own, YAKUZA’s existence lies on a metal base with progressive flair, while somehow also incorporating elements of jazz, world beat, and post-rock ambiance. Picture (if you can) a mixture of King Crimson, all periods of John Coltrane’s career, Tortoise, and Napalm Death. The end result is captivating, a sound that Rolling Stone, Revolver, Alternative Press, the Chicago Sun Times, the Chicago Tribune, All That Jazz and countless others all agree is refreshingly original, technically proficient, all the while still staying very metal.


Continuing the band’s genre-defying sound with Transmutations, the follow-up to 2006’s critically acclaimed record, Samsara, the album sees YAKUZA again pushing the aural boundaries further albeit in a different way, incorporating more psychedelic elements alongside stretching, doomy movements and the band’s trademark jazz-influences, while also incorporating breakneck grind riffs and grooves at the same time.


"Exploration, experimentation, riding the line between the familiar and the foreign; the essential elements for YAKUZA have already been established,” frontman Bruce Lamont says. “We are not interested in creating music that’s not easily definable. Our roots are firmly planted in metal - yes, but like life, the sounds here are not cut and dry. At times this record can be uplifting, cruel, celebratory and just downright fuckin’ mean."


Utilizing producer and established multi-instrumentalist Sanford Parker (Rwake, Pelican, Minsk) for the recording ofTransmutations, YAKUZA couldn’t be happier with the album’s end sound. “Sanford was great to work with,” Lamont says. “We really feel he has refined his craft over the past half a dozen recordings he's done. He’s known the band for a long time and helped with our last release, so he is already aware of our studio tendencies. With him the process felt almost effortless.”


With an album that continues the YAKUZA sound while – somehow - also expanding upon the band’s already established enigmatic concepts and forward-thinking approach to metal, Transmutations continues to push the envelope, carving a niche in the metal genre, while still continuing the band’s originality that has garnered so much attention in the underground – metal, mainstream or otherwise.

Stravičan bend, ima nekih 7-8 godina kako sam naleteo na "Way of the Dead", jebenih stvari ima na toj ploči, a ne zna se koja je od koje bolja. Jedno vreme bio sam potpuno opsednut bendovima kao oni i ovde zaboravljeni Minsk. Jedan od favorita je i
