Melodic death metal band GYZE gave an impressive finale to their “Black Bride” album tour at O-East last Thursday. The band dealt out a splendid ear-battering (and yes, some people did have their fingers in their ears, it was that loud) to a crowd of die-hard fans as well as a few new faces who had been tempted to the show by the evening’s “Name Your Price” ticket system. Leaving your ticket price up to the punters seems like a bold move for a young band making their one-man debut at the Shibuya live house but, whatever anyone paid, the band certainly made the evening worth every single yen as they clocked in with a 2-hour-plus show.

Guitarist and front-man Ryoji deals in epic, complex guitar solos which the crowd seemed to know every note of, even singing along to the melody in some parts as you would sing along to lyrics, perhaps harkening back to many moons ago when the band were more of a instrumental set-up than a vocal one. Drummer Shuji and bassist Aruta hold down the rear of the band with some clever drum-work that will make your little prog-heart flutter, and a bassist who loves riling up the crowd and holding his own on vocal duties.

You can catch GYZE supporting Dragonforce in Taiwan in September. Check out the band’s website for more details of future shows!
