about

NOTE:
This is the 2019 edition: KOENJIHYAKKEI "Angherr Shisspa (Revisited)". See catalog number GR78CD for the 2005 release.

PRESS QUOTES:
“Dhorimviskha” by Koenjihyakkei selected as one of the Best Albums of 2018 - BANDCAMP DAILY

“Towers over most modern progressive rock because of an attention to detail and an almost overwhelming force of conviction. No irony here: this rocks with the teeth and heart to cut through scenes and the "overground" like a knife." - PITCHFORK

“Headed by "vocalist / composer / drummer extraordinaire" Tatsuya Yoshida, this group is a boiling-hot, Stravinsky-meets-Sex Pistols stew of blaring woodwinds, power chord guitars, shimmering synths, and soaring, operatic vocals delivered by a front-woman 'speaking in somersaulting tongues'." - TINY MIX TAPES

“Not only the most brilliant of all of contemporary Japanese bands, but perhaps the greatest group currently operating in the world." – ALTERNATIVE PRESS

“One of the most mind-blowing progressive bands ever.” - MATHCORE INDEX

“Holy shit, right?” - FECKING BAHAMAS

DESCRIPTION:
Some bands you just have to hear. Japan's KOENJIHYAKKEI (aka Koenji Hyakkei) are just such a band. Tatsuya Yoshida’s (of the renowned bass and drum duo RUINS), progressive rock powerhouse is Area and ELP at their most excessive; Deus Ex Machina with tempo changes multiplied by 100; and Magma at their orff-ian choral, fusion jazz, overcharged gospel peak.

“Angherr Shisspa”, the band’s landmark fourth album explodes with glittery keyboard lines, speedy bass/drum workouts, emotive reed respites, and operatic female vocals that take the listener from sheer exuberance to absolute apocalypse... all performed with superhuman technique in confoundingly catchy, complex arrangements.
