Japanische Kampfhorspiele – Bilder Fressen Strom

"Bilder Fressen Strom" is the 5th full-length album of JAKA, one of the most innovative extreme metal German acts. I use the term "extreme metal" because it's a fact that this band's music style is very complex to define. Some characteristics like: keeping their songs short, using pictures of social content for album covers or having double vocals (brutal growls and high-pitched screams), let you put them under the "grindcore" tab in general, but that's definitely not the case.

The whole package contains lots of thrash metal, lots of muted guitar riffing, heavy as fuck beat-downs and lots of technicality. The songs are solid but yet full of rapid beat and riff changes and the vocals are totally one of a kind! I say, if you listen to the wacko's screams you'll never forget them. He's screaming and spiting (only in Deutsch) lyrics in a funny or annoying way, but in the end this is what makes it so unique and twisted. And in addition to all above, the band has also experimental tendencies: strange percussion appear from time to time and various noisy or acoustic sounds.

The attempt to describe Jaka's music could carry on forever, but that's not the issue. It's a fact that the band has managed to create an original sound out of a variety of different personal tastes and influences. Just check out their course from "Rauchen Und Yoga" (including a huge amount of splits and EPs) until today and you'll fully understand that this band provides you some of the most fresh and high-quality extreme sounds in the scene. Horns up!
