Ryujin Debut “Gekokujo” Music Video


Samurai metal band Ryujin have shared the song “Gekokujo” from their upcoming self-titled album. The Japanese outfit have been taken under the wing of Trivium vocalist/guitarist Matthew Kiichi Heafy with this new album. Heafy both produced and guests on that outing, which Napalm Records have slated for a January 12th release.

Ryujin mastermind Ryoji Shinomoto

“In Japanese history, gekokujo refers to the act of a lower-ranking person politically or militarily overthrowing a higher-ranking person, violating the social order, and seizing power. I would say the song is Japanese horror folk metal. The music video also depicts Japan’s unique horror. Enjoy the dark side of Ryujin too!”
