MURASHITA
"INESCAPABLE DAMNATION"
Self Released

"INESCAPABLE DAMNATION" is the debut EP release from MURASHITA, which is
the solo project from guitarist Masaki Murashita of the band
HEMOPTYSIS. The music
played here is done in a melodic Death Metal style with touches of Thrash Metal all
through out. The guitar work is done at blazing speeds with full on Thrash parts as well
as melodic and grooved out parts. Masaki should be put up there with a lot of the great
guitarist in the extreme Metal genre. His guitar work is fast, intricate, deeply thought out
and well executed. Some of the best guitar work I have heard in a Metal band in a long
time. This is no surprise as I was a fan of his previous band
HEMOPTYSIS, which is a
killer Thrash band. The vocals are done in a mid ranged, gritty and groggy Thrash Metal
style with some more melodic vocals mixed through out. The album features guest
musicians such as David Ellefson (
MEGADETH), Kevin Talley (SUFFOCATION, SIX
FEET UNDER, CHIMAIRA
), Kelly Conlon (DEATH, MONSTROSITY) &  Rodney
McGlothlin (
VOICE OF DISSENT). If you dig bands like ARCH ENEMY,
KREATOR, ARSIS, CARCASS, REVOCATION, EXMORTUS
& of course
HEMOPTYSIS then your going to love MURASHITA.
