“The five body blade was once a legendary weapon from Japan powerful enough to almost cut down an entire army with one swipe. After many centuries of slumber, this great blade was reborn in San Diego, California by five young whippersnappers who loved to play metal.”

Five Body Blade is a new Metalcore group emerging from the great state of California to cut down legions with their heavy sound. They’re creating a new sub-genre called Ancient Japanese Katana Metal. The five piece recently dropped a new EP, “A New Weapon”, which they shared with us and now we’re sharing it with the pit. You can stream the entire EP right here and download it for free on Bandcamp! If you like what you’re hearing, go show the blade some love! If not, you might get cut.
