Hagakure 00:49
- instrumental -
2.
They showed us three roads No one to kill but myself Here's the way beyond
3.
There was a man saying: "I'm so drawed by the dragon" He died when it came
4.
"Don't fall to the ground, Stay on my ghostly figure" One said to his head...
5.
Good is to be thrilled Don't teach your kid, others will Life is but a flare
6.
Is long life so fine? Greet the man who's lived so much Sons and wives, all died
7.
Dreaming of the shrine "Follow the lamp to survive" The girl said, white-dressed
8.
- instrumental -
9.
Trimmed knives, use your fist Severed hands, use your fierce bite Limbs grow back once more
10.
One in ten blind men Once fell into a ravine And lived with no fear
11.
Not a far frontier "You must leave behind this land" I said... My heart failed
12.

about

- The iconic and lyrical imagery of BUSHI is inspired by the Samurai epic, characterized by the contradiction between pride and disgrace, refinement and cruelty, prestige and decadence.
- The lyrics are short poems (haiku, a typical meter of Japanese poetry), each inspired by the precepts of the military and philosophical schools of these noble warriors. In this record all the haikus were made starting from the events or precepts contained in the Hagakure book (the title of each track contains the reference to the chapter and paragraph).
- Bushi's music comes out from the improper tuning of the guitar (each string in G) and the first record represented an exploratory phase of a new way of composing. In this second chapter there is more harmony, an easier task for vocals in finding melodies less litanic and more effective. The entry of Sergio Pomante's sax has enriched the sound palette, giving the album an original and distinct sound, far from the average heavy music scene.
- The record is released in digital format via Infinity Entertainment Group. The physical format is an illustrated book (including the lyrics and credits of the recording) with a CD included.evry drawings of the book made by the artist Francesco Farneselli (facebook.com/francesco.farneselli).
- The Flawless Avenger is a compendium of stories of old sages, of samurais devoted to an honorable end, of moral teachings, of premonitory dreams that show the way. The way of the Samurai: Death.
