Freak Kitchen

"I use Caparison basses because they are a really fine handcrafted instrument. I like the thick powerful yet distinct sound which suits Freak Kitchen and compliments Mattias’s guitar sound perfectly. I also like the neck which is easy to play and feels great for my hand. The bass looks really nice, especially the matte black one with black chrome metal.

Furthermore I know that Kanno san has the intention of building really high end instruments after having discussions with him on Shinkansen a couple of years back, and I really trust his ability to do just this."

Freak Kitchen's style of music is influenced by many genres besides the traditional heavy metal, ranging from jazz to pop. The band described their third album as "A corny little heavy-pop-rock-Latin-world-jazz-avant-garde-metal-blues-record straight from hell!".
