Arising Empire proudly welcomes Tokyo Riff Lord Sable Hills, a band that has rapidly risen to prominence in Japan's metal scene. This announcement coincides with the release of their brand new single 'Odyssey,' a track that further cements their status as a formidable force in the metal genre.
The band embarks on a new journey with the inclusion of Wataru (Guitarist & Vocalist). Their previous single 'A New Chapter', marked a significant turn in their musical odyssey. Alongside their brand new track these singles showcase the fresh and compelling vocals of Wataru, backed by the engineering finesse of Atrium Audio's Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland, celebrated for their work with bands like August Burns Red and Polaris.
Sable Hills has captivated audiences with their electrifying headline tours, notably 'Chaos J.P. 2023', which featured international acts such as Like Moths To Flames and Knosis, led by Ryo Kinoshita, former vocalist of Crystal Lake. This tour marked an important return to Japan for these acts after a long hiatus.

The band's ascent to prominence was ignited by their debut album »EMBERS«, released in 2019, which received widespread acclaim and positioned them at the pinnacle of Japan's metal and loud music scenes. Their ability to share the stage with renowned Japanese bands like coldrain, Crystal Lake, and international heavyweights such as Fit For A King and After The Burial, demonstrates their expansive appeal.
Participation in major festivals like the Bloodaxe Festival at Club Citta Kawasaki and the True North Festival at Shin-Kiba Studio Coast has further enhanced their reputation.
The release of their second album »DUALITY«, in collaboration with Mark Lewis, a notable figure in the metal music industry, marked another high point in their career. The album's release tour, extending from Japan to Europe, featured their performances at globally recognized metal festivals, including Wacken Open Air in Germany and Brutal Assault in the Czech Republic.
At Wacken Open Air 2022Sable Hills achieved an historic victory, winning the METAL BATTLE 2022, a first for a Japanese band.
In 2023, the band continued to blaze a trail of success. They sold out their show at Spotify O-WEST and performed at major festivals including coldrain's BLARE FEST, KNOTFEST and Wacken Open Air 2023 for the second consecutive year. Their self-organized FRONTLINE FESTIVAL at Kawasaki Club Citta was a resounding success, attracting nearly 1000 attendees.
With the release of 'OdysseySable Hills is not just expanding their discography but also reinforcing their position as a dynamic and influential entity in the metal music world. Arising Empire is proud to be associated with a band of such calibre and is excited about the journey ahead with Sable Hills.
