A unique, disquieting sound
Yamantaka // Sonic Titan were founded in Canada by ex-Lesbian Fight Club members Ruby Kato Attwood and Alaska B. The band was originally an art project. Its purpose was to subvert the cultural norms of their own Asian-European identities. Musically, their Asian roots lie in so-called C-Pop, the name given to Chinese popular music, and J-Pop, or Japanese pop, which itself is a fusion of Japanese and Western music. Well-known J-Pop stars include Aiko and Max. Yamantaka // Sonic Titan stirs these styles into a broth of heavy metal, prog rock and industrial to create their unique, disquieting sound. Vocals are then perched on this surging wall of sound to create a haunting, unsettling contrast. The band’s founding members appear on stage wearing both bikinis and traditional Japanese kabuki face paint. The band has two methods of presentation: they tour as a rock band and they stage epic theatrical events, the first of which was a drag rock opera called "33". On some songs, such as "Queens", the lyrics, which are filled with snakes, ravens and other strange and frightening references, are understandable. On others such as their epic "A Star Over Pureland" they are sung in what sounds like an invented language or become merged into the general soundscape. Yamantaka // Sonic Titan can also turn out a dance beat, albeit, couched in the strange, on songs like "Hoshi Niko". Taste that strange live when you buy and sell Yamantaka // Sonic Titan tickets from StubHub.
