RAIZE ISSUES is a surf/black metal/vg-core tiny band formed in boston(mission hill RBX) MA, 2003 (3002).
The members RUPAK(MIKEY Z),WRAITH(C-STAR), and WAH-DEY(LAZER BLADE)played guitars accompanied by improv vocals set to pre-recorded drum machines and processed tape recordings. Their influences included AM pizza runs, bittersweet cold, psychic weather control, volvos, ulver, mega man, and Indian Classical composition. Their album "aroha/avroha" was based upon the indian raag modal concept of "ascention and descention".The album was written in two weeks but the final recording was produced using a method of collaging and layering multiple live recorded performances. These compositions were written in two weeks (at FELIX STUDIOS, mission hill RBX) during the start of what would become "the iraq war".
The band migrated back to Los Angeles CA where they played one show before disbanding later in 2003.
WRAITH(C-STAR),WAH-DEY(LAZER),and RUPAK(MIKEY Z)have also
played in the band BOW+ARROW which formed in 2006.
WRAITH(C-STAR) joined the group GAS CHAMBER MARUTAZ/TSUMARANAI DESU shortly after the breakup of RAIZE ISSUES.
