YOMI released Genpei album

YOMI band I interviewed late July now released their second album "Genpei". It will soon be available for ordering at Soundage Productions, their label.

The album is based on the history of the Genpei War (1180-1185). It was a war between the Taira (Heike) and Minamoto (Genji) clans, who vied for power in the realm. Many scholars consider the Genpei war to be the first true samurai war, which established the samurai as the ruling class of Japan. The war ended with the destruction of the Taira and the establishment of the Kamakura shgunate or bakufu - a military government, the power of which would surpass that of the Emperor for many years to come. Learn more in their interview for Sword Chant.
