GUEVNNA has spent the last 5 years developing a new approach to that established “1st wave” sound of Japanese Doom. Apparent in their first EP, 2015’s “Conspiracies”, it was obvious that they had plans to forcefully evolve that sound.
To that end, “Conspiracies” consisted of 4 tracks which introduced us to the concept of really catchy Doom, dance-y even, but 2016’s 1st full length “Heart of Evil” shows that evolution really taking form. Equal parts The Almighty Riff and “Holy Hell, I gotta move to this”, the selection on “Heart of Evil” may vary in tempo from track to track but one thing is common amongst them all: GUEVNNA’s astounding ability to take the mesmerizing “Heavy, Sludgy but Danceable” sound and make you want to run with it.
And that’s really their focus: take this music and do something with it. While there are no lyrics listed in the whole package that is Heart of Evil, it does feature the excellent artwork of ANUSTES — one piece for each song — making it not so much Choose Your Own Adventure as Choose Your Own (definition of) Doom. GUEVNNA is a band that, with their infectious grooves and (for lack of a better term) fun-as-fuck live show, give the audience what amounts to a call to action: get our their and rock all the way to the end.
In 2018, Bahboon pre-released their 1st album “Genjin Attack” in digital.This album was shared all over the world, and they got so much inquiries from magazines and radios.
It became the topic despite before the domestic release in April.
LITTLE REX QUEEN RECORDS, which is the label Bahboon runs by themselves is planing to summon the London’s festival called “Desert Fest” in Japan.
