In the somehow homogenous visual kei scene of Japan, OROCHI stands out with his unique blend of rock, metal and visual artistry that keeps a deep connection to the myth and thrill of Japanese culture. Not surprisingly, Ryu – the artist behind OROCHI – actually has samurai ancestors’ blood in his veins.
The music itself, which basically is rock, gets a distinctive touch of culture when it incorporates the tunes of traditional Japanese instruments as of nohkan, dragon flute, koto and biwa – all instruments mastered by Ryu. The lyrics bring you back to a world of myth and fairy-tales in an ancient Japan.
OROCHI was formed back in 2004 and has had several different lineups. Today however, OROCHI is a solo project managed by the front-man Ryu.
