“Satori Pt. II” by Flower Travellin’ Band
This song ties in with this week’s Gaijin Deep Dive, where I talk all about the Japanese Metal scene.
Satori is the first-ever example of Japanese Metal, and I found it the most appropriate choice for this week’s song. While the album does not seem like a “metal” album, within the song of the album you can hear the heavy basses and oddly psychedelic pieces that would define early Metal.
I am almost reminded of the Magical Mystery Tour when I listen to this song, and I really like how odd that feels. One doesn’t expect a Beatles feeling when listening to Metal, but music is a fickle thing.
I guess that what I get for thinking I could compartmentalize it so easily.
