Japanese metal band VIEW FROM THE SOYUZ have released their latest EP, Immaculate, via DAZE. Blending modern metalcore and melodic death metal, the record is seething with intricate riffs, heavy breakdowns, and stark vocals. Lyrics unify in Japanese and English, ranging in themes from spouts of aggressions to fallen emperors. The EP follows up 2021’s In Misty Path, which quickly earned them notable status in the Japanese metal/hardcore scene and spots opening for international touring acts like Unearth and Xibalba. With the release of Immaculate, the band set out to create well-constructed, in-your-face songs that have them starting 2023 on a high note.
