Japanische Kampfhorspiele - Rauchen Und Yoga
This German band is an old acquaintance of Metalrage, for I have written the 3 other reviews for this band. Itís always a pleasure to check out a new JaKa album, especially when it is entitled Rauchen Und Yoga. For the people not acquainted with the derivative JaKa, it is short for Japanische Kampfhorspiele, and if you do not mind I will use the shorter form for the rest of this reviewÖ damn Germans. 
 
I do know JaKa have released a lot of albums, and I remember their last one being a compilation of older work. The booklet of that record was quite special and required some handywork. This record is a brand new one, and it really blasts. The older JaKa records were sucking in sound quality. I would rather listen to the endless laments of woman and children being slaughtered by a polar bear, than listen to that noise. However, luckily that all changed a couple of years ago, and this new record is sounding very professional.
 
The songs are short, but there are some weird escapades that seem to last forever. There is nothing to expect and nothing to time, which I really like. Another band that seem to utilize that same technique is Cephalic Carnage, but JaKa is totally different in sound. Blasting, pausing, blasting and pausing again, perhaps a little mathcore, but again not really.
 
Iíll stop blathering about this record, itís just another JaKa record and people who are familiar with this band can be ensured to be entertained. I really liked it, even better than their previous albums with better sound quality.
