Over the last decade or so, Japan has produced an astonishing amount of new talent in Metal, both bands and musicians, the majority of which have gone unheard outside of the native land. The reasons for this are numerous but primarily the language barrier and the difference in culture, both of which lead to an inertness and stagnation when it comes to reaching out from Japan to the rest of the world.

At UPP-tone Music, we intend to change that by acting as a middle company between Japan and the rest of the world. Our aim is to help Japanese Metal bands become more well known internationally, helping both them and international labels, managers and promoters to understand and navigate everyone's way through the cultural differences and language barriers. 

We will provide a quick-reference English website for the international market, each band having it's own uniform page, no matter what the level of band is in Japan, to give each an equal opportunity internationally, aiming to provide at least five new bands for you to view every 6-8 weeks. 

The project will be launched in early 2022 but if you have any enquiries before that, please contact us at
