May 27, 2008: Album of the Day Vol. 005: Mudy on the 昨晩 (Sakuban) - 2008 - VOI

HearJapan album description:

This 5 member instrumental band hailing from Nagoya originally started back in January of 2006. Currently, the members are in their Junior year at their university. The sheer variety of their music makes it impossible to categorize their music. Everything from dancing, to screaming to brute chaos is on display at their live performances. They were selected to take part in JESU's Shibuya Quattro performance in the Autumn of 2007 by Justin K. Broadrick (ex Napalm Death~Godfresh). VOI is the product of channeling their ferocious live energy that they are known for into an album.

They utilize three guitars which overlap to create a really unique sound. I guess the average setup is one guitar plays chords while the other plays melody and the other plays sound effects. But this is the best new band I have found in a while, but nobody knows about them yet (maybe because they just made their debut).
