J-tunes daily: Maximum the Hormone - Yoshu Fukushu

Song of the day
Maximum the Hormone - Yoshu Fukushu (Preemptive Revenge)

Maximum the Hormone is a Japanese Rock, Nu metal and Hardcore Punk band from Tokyo. Consisting of Daisuke-han (Daisuke Tsuda - vocalist), Nao (Nao Kawakita - drummer and backup vocalist ), Maximum the Ryo-kun (Ryo Kawakita - guitarist, songwriter and singer), and Ue-chan (Futoshi Uehara - bassist), the band are widely known for their unconventional and experimental style.

Over the course of their career they have found huge success incorporating a wide variety of elements from heavy metal, hardcore punk, pop, funk, hip hop, nu and ska into their sound. Setting themselves apart from the typically more angsty feel that many nu grenre bands are associated with, Maximum the Hormone's songs often provide a veritable mish-mash of emotions, from the dark and serious, to the ironic and just plain humorous, with plenty drastic shifts in tempo and mood over the course of a song.

From heartfelt and emotional to explosive and destructive. In true Maximum the Hormone style, the song Yoshu Fukushu (Preemptive Revenge) incorporates a compelling mix of both sorrowful and aggressive tones. Nao's beautiful and expressive vocals lay out a pleasant but sobering tune, whilst Daisuke-han's deep and powerful voice turns the dilal up to exhilarating degrees.

The vocal track offers both beautiful and thrilling tones, blending wonderfully with the hard hitting and aggressive sounds provided by the instrumentation. With plenty of drastic shifts in dynamic offering up a multitude of emotions, Maximum the Hormone's Yoshu Fukushu makes for an incredibly powerful and thoroughly enjoyable song
