Svart Records unveils ’Sutra‘, the new album from grand master avant-garde overlords Yakuza. A genre crushing album of forward thinking metal for the modern age, ’Sutra‘ is a powerhouse of unlimited expression and molten riffs. Formed in 1999, Chicago based heavy hybridizers Yakuza, are in a genre all of their own, which Pitchfork describe as a “a specialized and strange alloy”.

So eclectic and hard to pigeon-hole, their music has been described over the years as everything from avant-garde metal, progressive metal, alternative metal to experimental rock, jazz metal, art metal and post-metal. Incorporating psychedelic rock jams that sprawl into heavy, sludging Doom with jazz influences, while also incorporating breakneck grind riffs and grooves, makes Yakuza‘s new album “Sutra” a long awaited and insanely enjoyable feast of frequencies.

Today they launch first single “Alice”
