Exactly what it says on the tin.

They're a Japanese speed metal band that plays anime show inspired metal. All lyrics are in Japanese. The format is similar to Edge of Sanity's Crimson II: Tracks tend to be around a minute or so long, but they continue the same sound over a handful of tracks. I've been thinking about making a thread for a while now.

Expect blatant metal anthems to pop up in riffs from time to time, in what can only be seen as a tribute to metal's greats (Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Van Halen, etc.).

Fun songs, lyrics you won't understand, classic 80s shredding leads, a trip down metal memory lane, etc.

Endorsed by, and with a guest appearance from, the one and only Marty Friedman. And currently featuring the guitarist from Galneryus, and the singer from Anthem.

How much are they paying you?
Quote by metal4all
Just, no. Locrian should be treated like that gay cousin. Just avoid him cuz he's weird, unstable, and is attracted to the wrong thing.

Is there a video of Marty playing with them? I cant find one in Youtube.

Probably just the studio recording.

Yeah, but cheesy in good way.

You can't listen to one of their albums through, and not like it.

I just see it as something different.

I view vocals as an extra instrument and, more often than not, pay little attention to the actual lyrics. In metal anyway.

I don't care about lyrics, it's just that the vocals itself are kinda weak

find me the Japanese Hansi Liu Ping Pong Kürsch and I'll listen to it

No.

You, sir, are racist. And a lost cause.

It's the only possible explanation for not liking a band that I suggested.

The music's alright

I'm a sucker for everything that's even close to 80's, but I'd rather listen to something else hahha

hey i like them
ive only heard the neon genesis cover
but im guessing if you dont watch the anime that they do the song for
then it doesn't sound as good
#24
I don't watch anime at all, but I love them.

And yeah, they do a lot of covers based on the intros to anime tv shows, aswell as semi-covering big metal songs like "Battery" and "Crazy Train".

Why did I not see this on Marty's website? Maybe it was in the older news...

Which song(s) does Marty guest in?
Lost interest.

I thought all Japanese music was anime-inspired.

Sounds nice. Need to know where Marty is in, though.

I suggest listening to every song until you notice his style.

The only help I can offer is that MA says he played on Animetal Lady Marathon II (which is neither an album or song, and I can't seem to find it in existence).

But in an interview with the band, it's mentioned he played on Animetal Marathon III.

Try 324, they're pv/grindcore from Japan, kinda thrashy guitars, deep, shouty vocals.

More guitar, less Ultimate-Guitar.

I have no problem with the singer, I actually like him.

But back when I was less... seasoned, I might have been a bit put off by him. Might.

They're nothing like Dragonforce.

But the songs are around a minute to a minute & a half on average. So if you just had your library on shuffle, it wouldn't really been too overpowering.

But I can respect that you might not be able to listen to 'em much.
