After signing several Japanese artists, SETSUZOKU RECORDS, a brand-new label division of tour organisation Orion Live UK, announced a new artist signing. It started with heavy metal vocalist IBUKI, to indie-rock duo HEAVENSTAMP, singer-songwriter MIKUROMIKA, and hard rock/heavy metal quintet BRIDEAR, the newest addition to the label is none other than metal and Visual Kei guitarist HIZAKI.
As lead guitarist and composer for symphonic power metal bands Versailles and Jupiter, and as an instrumental metal solo artist, the brilliant fretwork of the flamboyant HIZAKI has amazed audiences all over the world. With his stunning musicianship and equally striking appearance, HIZAKI seems to be ready to expand that global reach.
“I am very happy that my solo work will be released in Europe and the UK by Setsuzoku Records!” says HIZAKI. “I am looking forward to sharing the ultimate beauty and emotion of instrumental music with a wider world!”
“We are excited to have a musician the calibre of HIZAKI join our label,” said SETSUZOKU RECORDS co-director David Batey. “He is already known around the world, but HIZAKI deserves to see that audience grow.”
SETSUZOKU RECORDS is preparing a special European release of HIZAKI’s solo material. Details on the upcoming release will be announced in the coming weeks. Last February, the musician released the mini-albu, titled Rusalka.
