There are many artists who have used this name:
1) Argentinian stoner rock band. They released one free album in 2011 called Todo El Odio Del Unicornio, drawing influences from Kyuss to Los Natas to Ahkmed to Viaje a 800.
This band plays pure no-nonsense Stoner Rock. Their debut album called Todo El Odio Del Unicornio is an awesome piece of work.
It is clear that the music of Samurai is inspired by bands like Kyuss and Los Natas. A surprising name that also comes to mind is the band Ahkmed, especially the second track Cassablanca and the titletrack Todo El Odio Del Unicornio does remind me of this Australian band.
The sound of Samurai is characterized by stunning fuzz guitars and grooving rhythms. All of the songs on this album are really brilliants. The album Todo El Odio Del Unicornio is definitely a great start by Samurai. I really hope to hear more of this excellent band.
BAND'S WORDS: We've been playing since 2009 as three piece band (guitar - bass - drum). We love jamming so all songs come like this. In april 2011 we talk to Juan Manuel Diaz who is the guitar-singer of the band Humo del Cairo (Meteorcity). He accept to be our producer so we travel to Buenos Aires to start the first studio experience. We record all the tracks in two days. In june we get the final cd-version "Todo el Odio del Unicornio" with 9 songs all of them by SAMURAI, no covers. Now the complete cd version with the art cover is done.
