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).
