Self-defined as a brutal orchestra, Vampillia is a 10-piece group from Osaka, Japan. Happiness Brought By Endless Sorrow is their new EP out on May 4th via Temple of Torturous Records.
Pushing and blurring the boundaries of sonic extremities with a blend of heavy metal, post-rock, ambient noise, progressive elements and industrial sounds. They’re a melting pot of intensity as shown by Winter Ash, an opener that is a wild maelstrom of metal.
The 4 tracks that make up Happiness Brought By Endless Sorrow are short with only one going beyond a minute and a half. The same kind of speed you often associate with grindcore is constant as the oddly titled Ggggzzgggzzz roars with eye-watering levels of noise and Hell PM spits venomous bile.
It’s noisy and very unique but it’s certainly one that might leave a few feeling turned off.
