Sliptrick Records Welcomes Japanese Christian Metal Group IMARI TONES


Imari Tones Imari Tones are a Christian heavy metal band from Japan, where the majority of people believe in Buddhism and Christianity is very scarce. The band was formed in 2004 but the real start was in 2008 when they declared themselves as “The first Christian metal band from Japan”. Since then, Imari Tones toured in and out of Japan, while making many albums independently.

The band plays old-school metal music inspired by bands from the 1980s, such as Van Halen, Judas Priest, and Japanese bands like Loudness. But their music is fairly diverse and sometimes wanders into progressive territory, making it inevitable for listeners to compare them to prog bands such as Rush and YES. One of their goals is to combine Christianity and Bushido, the Samurai spirit because they believe they can believe in Jesus Christ without losing their identity as Japanese. That’s why they play Christian music with Japanese traditional taste, which puts them in a very unique position both musically and culturally.

Imari Tones always say their “roll” is that of a bridge. A spiritual and cultural bridge between Japan and the world. A lot of people in the world are interested in Japanese pop culture. On the other hand, there are so many people in Japan who have never heard of Jesus. Imari Tones are trying to reach both groups of people. They show the world what the Japanese spirit is like while introducing Christianity to a Japanese audience.
