While active overseas and targeting western market, in the band's new album Asian Chaos the main composer of the band Ryoji decided to highlight his Japanese identity. An amazing & unpredictable fusion was born : being proud of his origins, he invited musicians of Gagaku - world oldest orchestra - to perform on a few tracks, introducing such traditional Japanese wind instruments as Sho (笙), Hichiriki (篳篥) and Ryuteki (龍笛). The glory of lyrical melodies of Gagaku, combined with unique Japanese scale and integrated with heavy metal creates the unrivaled transcendent sound album showing how cool pure Japanese traditional music actually is. The new album is meant to leave the strong impression highlighting originality of GYZE.
"Asian Chaos" includes a song in collaboration with a DragonForce vocalist Marc Hudson. Look forward to find out what spice did Marc add to GYZE song!
More news! With the new album we're happy to welcome a new member on guitar and programming - SHINKAI, who used to be Ryoji's mentor. Also, instead of Shuji, who unfortunately can't continue band activity now, we introduce you to Han-nya - a support drummer. However, GYZE are hoping that one day Shuji would come back.
