HEMOPTYSIS – A Metal Odyssey Interview With Masaki Murashita

HEMOPTYSISMasaki Murashita is the founder, lead singer and guitarist for Hemoptysis, a Thrash Metal band from Phoenix, Arizona. Masaki wears a lot of hats these days, while making certain the world is being properly introduced to Hemoptysis. The blending of Extreme Metal styles is what makes Hemoptysis stand-out from the Metal pack. With some Death Metal grooves and occasional shades of Blackened vocal tones from Masaki, these attributes just seem to make the Thrash he and his band have created all the more relevant and unique in 2011. The overriding “Old School” Thrash style and sound of Hemoptysis is the driving force behind the songs heard on their debut full-length – Misanthropic Slaughter.

The “do-it-yourself” work ethic of this band, led by Masaki, released their debut album independently on March 8th, 2011. Since then, the critical response from all over the globe has been nothing short of exhilarating for a band that has justifiably earned it. Masaki is young and driven, with a professional air about him that I cannot help admire. This is a musician in Metal that has a keen sense of awareness for the business side of the recording industry. At the end of the Metal day, it is Masaki’s musical proficiency that he combines with his band’s impressive Metal skills that has left me rather awestruck, ever since my first listen to Misanthropic Slaughter.

I recall wondering and writing, how long can Hemoptysis be left unsigned to a label? This band could not be overlooked for long, however. On March 8th, 2011, the very day that Misanthropic Slaughter was released, it was announced that Rock It Up/IceWarrior Records from Germany signed a licensing deal with Hemoptysis. Metal be thy name, I felt proud for Masaki and his band. It’s a deserved leap forward into eventual Metal stardom. Hemoptysis has Metal stock that is rising fast, so my best advice is to invest your Metal time and money wisely and pick up Misanthropic Slaughter… you surely want to be a part of Thrash Metal and Metal history in the making.

Masaki Murashita is one cool Metal gentleman to speak with. I cannot resist supporting his Metal career and insanely impressive band known as Hemoptysis. Here is what Masaki had to say:

Stone: Just how did Hemoptysis evolve?

Masaki: Travis and I met through a mutual friend in April of 2007.  We started the band in June of 2007 when I found a larger practice space and another guitarist.  We got Sunao to play bass for us in early 2008.  Initially, I wasn’t the singer.  We had a different singer for a few months. After the original singer left, I took over on vocals.  We went through a few lead guitarists until we got Ryan Miller, who is also in a band called Excessive Bleeding.

Stone: How proud are you and the guys for getting signed to Rock It Up/IceWarrior Records?

Masaki: We all are very proud of it. We finally found a label that believes in us. They offered the most fair deal by far and it showed long term interest in our career. We are truly honored and we will continue working hard.

Stone: Metallica “Master Of Puppets” versus Slayer “Reign In Blood”. Which album is better and why? No, you can’t give a “tie” for an answer! (LOL)

Masaki: It’s a tough question since I grew up listening to both albums, but I’d say “Master of Puppets” because that record definitely inspired me to play Metal.

Stone: How have the live gigs been going for you? Tell us about your charity gigs too!

Masaki: It’s been really fun! The charity gig was especially awesome simply because the venue used to be a church and playing songs like “Who Needs A Shepherd?” was just priceless.

Stone: Can you update us on your family and friends well being in Japan?

Masaki: They are all doing well. Thank you! Japanese people are strong. Though it may take some time, they are working really hard to bring back their normal life.

Stone: What do you feel is lacking in today’s Heavy Metal climate when it comes to marketing and promotion?

Masaki: Team work. Everybody needs to work together to keep the scene. Bands can’t expect to get their name out and bring people to their shows without working hard. Same thing to fans. If you would like to see your favorite bands, you need to show them support by spreading the word and buying their merchandise and music. Promoters, venues, and labels also need to do their job and promote the shows to support the bands and the scene. Everybody is becoming greedy nowadays, but at the end of the day, we all need to survive and work together to sustain.

Stone: What inner and outside influence(s) did you and the band draw from, to write and record such a kick ass and Old School album of Metal?

Masaki: I have heavy influence from old school Thrash. Our drummer, Travis, and our lead guitarist, Ryan, are death metal guys. Our bassist, Sunao, listens to everything, including non-Metal stuff. We all have different backgrounds and that makes our music unique when everybody’s ideas blend together.

Stone: Tell the world… what veteran band do you feel Hemoptysis should open up for on a major tour and why?

Masaki: Megadeth, Carcass, Exodus, Testament to name a few. Those bands are just a few of the core influences of our sound and we think the people who are into those bands would like us.

Stone: Are you guys currently writing new Metal material for the next album?

Masaki: Yes. We are already working on the material for the next record.

Stone: With so much critical praise, from so many outlets, for “Misanthropic Slaughter”, are you shocked, knew it was coming or just humbled?

Masaki: We weren’t sure what was going to happen.  We knew we liked it but we weren’t 100% sure what people would think.  A lot of people liked our EP, “Who Needs A Shepherd?,” and gave it good reviews, so we were pretty sure people would like this better since the quality of the recording is so much better.  We also grew as musicians and switched to an even better lead guitarist, so we felt pretty confident about good reviews coming in.  We consider ourselves pretty humble, though.

Stone: What band that you’ve seen perform live left you awestruck?

Masaki: D.R.I. We opened for them last September and we were amazed how much their fans love them. The crowd was nuts! We’ve never seen that crazy of a pit and crowd at the venue in which we played. Much respect to them for being one of the most legendary “Do It Yourself (DIY)” bands.

Stone: Is there anything you’d like to say to your fans as we close out?

Masaki: If you like our music, please buy our music and support us. We would like to tour and play enough cities, both in the U.S. and abroad, only we cannot do this without our fans supporting us.

Masaki Murashita of Hemoptysis – Comments on His Native Japan, Concerning Current Crisis

Posted in Death Metal, Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, japan, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 15, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

As the country of Japan has suffered tremendously from the recent earthquake, tsunami and subsequent nuclear reactor problems, we have all been watching in horror and feeling for the people of Japan. Some have been hit on a more personal level, Hemoptysis vocalist/guitarist Masaki Murashita is a native of Japan and has issued the following comment:

“I first want to thank our fans for the overwhelming support they have shown me in the last few days since my home country of Japan was hit by devastating earthquakes and a tsunami. I have been in contact with my family and friends in Japan and they are safe at the moment but not out of harm’s way. This is without a doubt one of the most difficult and tragic times for my country. The Japanese people are strong and resilient but any help you can spare for the people of Japan would be greatly appreciated. You can help by following this link”  http://www.google.com/intl/en/crisisresponse/japanquake2011.html

Thank you. Masaki

HEMOPTYSIS “Misanthropic Slaughter” – Debut Album Is CAN’T MISS Thrash Metal For 2011 and Beyond!

Posted in Black Metal, Death Metal, Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 22, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

HEMOPTYSIS Real Thrash Metal will never say die or succumb to the mainstream. Metal, albeit Death or Black, grows stronger each day, one band and fan at a time. Old School Thrash Metal combined with a fresh and real sound of Extreme Metal, encompassing both Death and Black Metal influences is being played now by a young generation of talented Metal musicians. Thank the Metal Gods they are out there.

One such real and talented Metal band that fits this Metal mold and has risen from the pack is Phoenix Arizona’s very own HEMOPTYSIS… and their brand of Thrash Metal is to be heard and reckoned with. This isn’t carbon copy Thrash Metal that HEMOPTYSIS is unleashing on their debut full-length album Misanthropic Slaughter, (which is being self-released on March 8, 2011). Instead, this is about a Thrashing Extreme Metal torch being being lit by this band… and HEMOPTYSIS knows how to keep it’s F’n sacred Thrash Metal fire burning.

The first time Misanthropic Slaughter entered my ears, a realization flooded through my Metal mind and veins that HEMOPTYSIS is a band that cannot be stopped nor contained… not when the Thrash I’m hearing is this staggering. How on Earth can HEMOPTYSIS be an unsigned band? Some may question my Metal enthusiasm here… I respond by stating: this is a band that has 0% tolerance for pretentious Metal and has administered to my ears an original sound, that is bad ass personified.

What HEMOPTYSIS has created here with Misanthropic Slaughter, is a Thrash Metal album that has brought back an excitement that I’ve been yearning for from an “up and coming” Thrash Band (or any young Metal Band) for quite a few years now. From beginning to end, this album is a non-stop Metal high for me. Masaki Murashita on vocals is as original as they come, sounding as if he has ascended from the fiery and evil depths of inner Earth to spread his Metal mandate upon us all. In all my years of being a Thrash Metal loyalist, I can bravely admit Masaki’s vocals are the driving force behind HEMOPTYSIS being an Extreme Thrash presence.

One explicit identity of Masaki’s vocals is there being a defined trait of Death Metal fusing with Black Metal. Shades of multiple Metal genres will inevitably appear within the music of a new Metal Band, our beloved Metal genres influence is due to their decades of survival and acute dominance. Thank you Mr. Murashita, may I please have more? Masaki’s guitar licks alongside lead guitarist Ryan Miller are stuff of Thrash legend in another two decades from now… or much sooner. And I’ll add, that Masaki can light it up with an insane guitar solo on The Cycle, making his double Metal threat as vocalist and guitarist extremely formidable.

The sound clarity and across the board production on Misanthropic Slaughter is top tier quality. With “Grammy Award” winning producer Ryan Greene at the helm (Megadeth, Authority Zero, NOFX) Misanthropic Slaughter comes alive with an enriched sonic potency, with each instrument being played never succumbing to any hinderances. After my first few thorough listens to this album, I’m astonished it is a debut offering from HEMOPTYSIS… the songwriting, vocals and playing is that mature.

To say all eleven songs on Misanthropic Slaughter burn with an intensity of unreal speed and driving Thrash Metal force sounds rather cliche’, only it is the DAMNED Metal truth! My God has a new Thrash Metal Band crossed my Metal path and set me F’n Metal straight! The grand thing about it all, is that I never expected this! The solo’s that Ryan Miller turns loose on this album are F’n mind blowing. Period. Impending Doom, And The World Dies… it doesn’t make a difference, every ruthless guitar lead and solo that Ryan Miller assaults my eardrums with has me asking: Thank you Mr. Miller, may I please have more?

Yes, the unyielding combination of Masaki Murashita and Ryan Miller I have exposed… and for admirable Metal reasons. However, there is the Thrashin’ and Metal groovin’ rhythm combo of Sunao Arai on bass and Travis Thune on drums. Sunao and Travis make this album’s Metal sound rise to a stunning level, thanks in part to both of them penetrating any hollow cavity of silence with their thunderous beats. Sunao’s bass and Travis’s drums are vital in making these songs rage along at such a precise and breathtaking Thrash pace! If there is any better way to describe Sunao and Travis as players, then I’ll anoint them as the Thunder Gods of HEMOPTYSIS right now and be Metal done with it. Thank you Mr. Arai and Mr. Thune, may I please have more?

Yes Virginia, there is a Metal Claus and he delivered the Thrash Metal package to my Metal door. That Thrashin’ and Extreme lined package is Misanthropic Slaughter. At times, there is Metal melody that seeps out of that guitar of Ryan Miller’s and that is a favorable attribute. Masaki Murashita has given the Thrash Metal genre a whole new voice to identify with and that too, is a favorable attribute.

Hearing HEMOPTYSIS is Metal believing. There is a strong crossover appeal with HEMOPTYSIS, Thrash Metal, Metal, Death Metal and Black Metal fans can all benefit from Misanthropic Slaughter. There are no gimmicks or commercial leanings to be found and dissected here, it’s all about the songs, the real and meteoric Thrash Metal which empower’s me to state: Misanthropic Slaughter is an album that has CAN’T POSSIBLY MISS radiating from it’s every Metal nook and evil cranny. Metal be thy name.
