Bands
Yomi

Yomi is a Japanese folk-metal band from Latvia, inspired by acts such as Skyforger, God of Shamisen, Yoshida Brothers and Oriental metal in general. The band's music combines heavy death, black and doom metal riffs with traditional Japanese melodies, telling about legends, myths and history of Japan.

Yomi was formed in 2013 by Khurr (folk-instruments, vocals) and Andrey (drums) in Riga, Latvia. After a number of line-ups and several changes in style, the band broke up after a year due to the lack of time of the members. Nevertheless, during this time the first songs, which would later be included in the debut album, were composed, and on their basis the band was reformed in 2014, adding Isaz (guitar), Tom (bass) and Stephanie (drums).
