Next Order is a Japanese band formed in 2002. Heavy touring in Japan has cemented their rep as a wild yet disciplined mix of instrumental rock, jazz and free improvisation. Guitarist Yuji Muto is a graduate of the GIT Musicians Institute. The band has played live in Japan with Gongzilla, Tribal Tech and African Express Trio. Live-Refined is a totally live recording but no bootleg. The four piece band features two guitarists (Muto and Takumi Seino), one clean and one dirty, in constant communication. Their influences are Fusion, Thrash/Death Metal, and artists such as Allan Holdsworth, Gongzilla, King Crimson, Mike Stern, John Zorn, Napalm Death and Metallica.
