Inkakai is a new Finnish-Japanese alternative band, introducing Imperial Core – sharply dynamic alternative rock with influences from both nu-metal and electronic music. The masked and anonymous sextet is welded together around professional musicians with previous connections to Max Martin, Steve Vai and Lordi.
Their name Inkakai 陰火会 (shadow, fire, society) originates from Japanese legends, Inka being one of the onibi ghost lights – spirits born from corpses that have become fire. Themes of Darkness and Fire are symbolized by their black and red colour scheme.
A new Inkakai single is due to be released on May 28th, 2021.
In The Night, The Fire Burns Inside.
It Guides Us On The Dark Side.
One Path, Eyes Open, In The Unlite.
We Are Symbols, We Stay Concealed,
Shades Our Devices.
We Are Shadows, We Stay Unnamed,
Wraiths In Disguises.
We Are Imperial, We Stay Unlit,
The Inkakai Rises.
Accept No Imitations –
We Are The Fire.
