Japan has one of the most innovative, experimental and bizarre musical scenes in the globe. Experimental music, psychedelic attempts to create something new and groundbreaking, you can find it everything in the land of the rising sun, because people there consume music and really know their stuff. The whole planet could learn a thing or two about Japan.

Agree, I know many people that just call them a EITS rip-off which is totally unfair imo. I'm yet to hear such massive crescendos and progressions as The Flames Beyond Cold Mountain or my personal favorite, Moonlight. Many BM bands would kill to achieve the inmense wall of sound in tracks like the first one.
Some of the latest "blackgaze" and similar movements could take a look at this stuff.

It is really funny you should quote this now since I've been on a massive Mono crush in the last couple of days, listening to their 2009 release and this
that BM remark is 100% true and I've always thought that this has some moments when it is almost Blackgaze, the build-ups and the climaxes share a very similar approach with the aforementioned, actually it's the other way around
