Modern rock with Japanese traditional sound: Heavensdust

While visiting to check out the tracks from Singapore band, Lunarin, the recommendation engine pointed me to this heavy metal band called Heavensdust. I was intrigued by their description — that they mixed heavy metal with Japanese drums and instruments.

They seem to have been around for some time. Their more recent albums sound more sophisticated. The “Japanese instruments” isn’t very heavily featured, imho. Still, I like the sound of their 4th album, “Without A Voice”. Their sound reminds me of Evanescence, which explains why I like them.
