Japan’s finest metal band GYZE, who are celebrating the release of their brand new EP ‘The Rising Dragon‘ today, have announced a bunch of European summer live dates!
Formed in 2009 in Sapporo, Japan, GYZE gained credence among many talented local artists. As a result, they were invited to Tokyo where they released their first EP in 2011. In 2012 the band took the second place in national Metal-Battle Finals in Japan organized by Wacken Open Air. Being noticed overseas GYZE signed their first contract with Coroner Records.
Their first album “Fascinating Violence” was released Worldwide in 2013 and 2014 in Japan. It was ranked #1 on Amazon for consequent 3 months and topped the import CD charts in BURRN! magazine. After their major debut in Japan with Victor Entertainment in September 2014, GYZE have released their second full-format album in Japan and in 2015 Worldwide. In late 2016 GYZE joined the collaboration project to create the soundtrack for a PS4 game ”LET IT DIE” developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and released worldwide by GungHo Online. Having gained recognition among the world metalheads, GYZE released their 3rd full-length album with Universal Music Japan in March 2017. Today GYZE have released their brand new new EP ‘The Rising Dragon‘ ( including a stunning bonus track featuring Marc Hudson of Dragonforce! ), which gives an absolutely new feel and is filled with haunting Japanese melodies. ‘The Rising Dragon‘ is out now, grab your copy on Spotify and Amazon!
