This band is one that I discovered back in 2009 and for one reason or another, they dropped off the map for me, whether that is due to my thinking that they disbanded, or life making itself known, it feels as though I shouldn't have, because they are still around. A rock band that started in 1999 in the prefecture of Ibaraki (which is located Northeast of Tokyo). The sound that they make fits quite well within the Alternative, genre with a decent amount of screaming added to a number of their songs. I really like how the vocals work off of one another, especially when the band uses what is called gang-vocals, where the whole band gets involved in the song. The first full length album, released in 2006, titled Never turn on the light to keep myself on, was quickly by their followup album FACT in 2009, which was actually released internationally. This is the album that I was introduced to them by, and to this day, I still find it enjoyable.
The band consists of six members currently, Hironobu "Hiro" Onose as the lead vocals, Kazuki Sakurai on the rhythm guitar, Eiji Matsumoto on the drums and percussion, Tomohiro Takayasu on the bass, Takahiro Onose, on the lead guitar, and on guitar there is Adam Graham who was added to the band in 2012. As stated above, due to the use of gang-vocals, the other band members are used as backup-vocals in a number of their songs. Hironobu-san was not originally the lead singer of the band, that was orignially Tomohiro-san until they added Hironobu-san in 2002.
The last album that the band released up to this point was titled KTHEAT back in 2015, and apparently though not their highest chart, it made it to the top 10 albums at time of release in Japan. Although I may not have heard their most recent music, I still believe that they are deserving of attention, because from word of mouth, up to date fans, from what I have heard have enjoyed what they have been putting out lately. Once again; if you are interested, I will put the pertinent information at the bottom of this article in order for you to see if this band is what you are looking for.
