Emotionally raw and aggressive, GYROAXIA’s first original English song “ALL MY PARTS” is 2023’s rock anthem.
GYROAXIA consists of Jin Ogasawara (on vocals), Shinichi Hashimoto (guitar), Takumi Mano (guitar), Hiroto Akiya (bass) and Kousuke Miyauchi (drums).

This time around, GYROAXIA goes all out in a sound that sounds that goes in line with what they have done in the “Freestyle“.
“ALL MY PARTS” sounds like a song that could be a crossover between One Ok Rock, Nothing’s Carved in Stone and Bring Me the Horizon.
Much like the bands I just mentioned, this time around GYROAXIA capitalizes on synths and a lot of effects on the guitars to create a futuristic rock sound that sounds big and aggressive without being obvious about it.
The verses have a wide soundscape created by the distant, reverbed guitars and synths.
The drums go for the hi-hat to add a lot of speed (apparently only) as the bassline slowly creeps its way into this song.
As the song progresses and gets closer to the chorus, the instrumental quiets, giving Jin Ogasawara the stage to shine with what is one of his best performances with GYROAXIA.
Ogasawara is overflowing with emotion in this performance, making the song connect with the listener right from the very start.
And when the chorus kicks in, while he is not screaming, the way he vocalizes is as if he is screaming his heart out. For me, as a big fan of rock music – and coincidently of GYROAXIA – when performed live, this song demands the public to join in and shout alongside Ogasawara.
If the chorus is already this impactful on CD imagine when it takes a step to the live performances. Are you picturing it?
It’s going to be unbelievable. I’m sure of it, especially if it goes this heavy or even heavier in a live setting.
A big shout to all the band – because there’s more to the band than Ogasawara – for an amazing performance. I always find myself drawn into the drumming as it is done with a ridiculous amount of emotion but overall, from bass to guitar and even down to synths, everything is flawless in this song.
“ALL MY PARTS” is exactly the perfect direction for GYROAXIA, the follow-up that I have been waiting for to “Freestyle”, a song that shows the band’s maturity and picks up perfectly from where they left things off in that massive EP.
While some fans may expect something obviously “heavy”, I love this kind of subdued violence in their music that resonates deeper with the listener and lets the band be more melodic with their sound overall.
I can’t wait to what GYROAXIA delivers next but if these past digital singles are an indication of something is that we can all wait for more amazing songs coming from the band.
