Japan - Active.

Description

Traditional Doom

A long-standing power trio originally founded in 1987, Ningen Isu (人間椅子) falls under the 'Proto-doom' tag, being strongly influenced by '60s and '70s UK Hard Rock/Heavy Metal, especially of the Black Sabbath persuasion. Rather like Budgie (whose 'Breadfan' and other tracks they have covered), they have a heavy, riffing sound that frequently touches on doomy territory, without concentrating on it enough to acquire a full Trad Doom tag. The band is known for wearing traditional Japanese outfits, and almost exclusively performing in Japanese - even their cover versions are often translated into their native tongue.
