Yakuza is an avant-garde metal band, formed in Chicago in 1999. Current members are James Staffel, Matt McClelland, Bruce Lamont, and Ivan Cruz.
Excerpts of reviews of our new record, Reverent Burden:
"A smoldering blackened ambience starts things off, all haunting creaks and whirling winds, distant guitar buzz and abstract strum, the build ultimately culminates in some seriously pummeling and lumbering doomic plod, the crashes and churning riffage spaced way out, leaving plenty of room for long stretches of heavily layered guitar buzz and blurred expanses of low end shimmer. The vocals are deep and bellowed, and everything is subtly infused with a bit of melody, but those melodies seem to bleed into the blackness surrounding them, each track a haunting downtuned black doom creep."
