Yakuza are another of the very avant-garde hardcore bands that seem to be coming out of the woodwork nowadays. This is a very good thing. Yakuza sound like a cross between Neurosis' ambient hardcore sound and jazz fusion. They don't wander as much as Neurosis, and the break up the soundscapes with jazz interludes. I'm not doing their sound any justice; just go listen to the samples on Century Media's website. Highly recommended for those into the more avant-garde forms of music.
