“Kings are born kings, so don’t waste your time and pay homage to Murashita. Now, you mortal!”  Dark Souls United

Masaki Murashita first showed his scorching riffs and powerful songwriting, along with his blistering and aggressive vocal style with the critically acclaimed modern thrash band Hemoptysis in 2007 and he has been clawing his way to the top ever since. Combining elements of melody, thrash and modern extreme metal, Masaki has molded his own razor-sharp brand of metal that is moving into the next stage of metal evolution.

MURASHITA is now releasing the debut solo EP, Inescapable Damnation, which features some of the top players in metal – including David Ellefson (Megadeth), Kevin Talley (Suffocation, Six Feet Under, Chimaira), Kelly Conlon (Death, Monstrosity), Rodney McGlothlin (Voice of Dissent) – and mixing by award-winning producer, Ryan Greene (Megadeth, NOFX).

Early previews of the new MURASHITA release performed on EMGtv were met with overwhelmingly positive reviews. The international tour to support Inescapable Damnation began in Japan this past September.

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

Guitarist, songwriter, producer and engineer Masaki Murashita has assembled his own solo band: MURASHITA. The founder and Metal mastermind behind Hemoptysis, Masaki Murashita has proven to me, that he once again, can bring a band of musicians together and create another incredible album of explosive Metal. This five song EP, Inescapable Damnation, will be self-released on October 16th. Masaki brings his lead guitar and scorching vocals back to the forefront with his solo debut and I am left completely jubilant at what I’ve been listening to.

MURASHITA Inescapable Damnation features Metal heavyweights: David Ellefson (Megadeth), Kevin Talley (Suffocation, Six Feet Under, Chimaira), Kelly Conlon (Death, Monstrosity) and Rodney McGlothlin (Voice of Dissent). Mixing was done by award-winning producer, Ryan Greene (Megadeth, NOFX). With a powerhouse lineup like this, MURASHITA delivers on all counts on this EP. I love how the guitar playing transitions from brutal to melodic on these songs, along with Masaki’s unique vocals playing such a tremendous role in this EP’s overall persona and intensity. Only those who have not a clue will find even a minuscule fault in Inescapable Damnation.

With the overall stellar musicianship being nailed down, the songwriting and lyrics are also top-tier on Inescapable Damnation. Conquer The Foe and The Show Must Go On are two examples of perseverance and self-confidence bursting out lyrically; two attributes of Masaki that have made him the underground Metal warrior I have greatly admired since day one. Masaki Murashita and his star-studded band should rightfully be proud of Inescapable Damnation. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Fans of Melodic Death Metal to Thrash will surely want to add this EP to their Metal stash.
