They've only gone and released a video for my (current) favourite track off the new album Posted Image






Jesus. Looks can be deceiving. That guitarist is no fn' joke.


Something about the 'looks can be deceiving' part ain't quite sitting right.


Looks too too young to be so talented.


They're all brilliant. Kanami (the lead guitarist), MISA (bass) and Akane (drums) are particularly amazing. I just had the new cd through from Amazon Japan (got it off iTunes originally cos I couldn't wait :lol: ). The Japanese version comes with a bonus blu-ray with instrumental, multi angle versions of some songs that allow you to watch just the individual instruments. It's gob-smacking to watch/listen to.

Also, you have to see them live . . .

I don't know if I'd quite put Akane as being an amazing drummer - certainly skilled and solid, but the standard I measure truly incredible drummers by has been ruined by Dirk Verbeuren's very existence. This shouldn't be taken as a detraction from her though as she could quite handily play circles around me.

I might pop up to HMV and pick the CD up later. My wife also is quite happy to listen to them in the car on long journeys which is a win.

Hehe, well I always judge drummers by Neil Peart's standards, so I'm not easily pleased :lol: It's tough to compare as B-M are hard rock, not metal. I do think she's amazing, though.

Incidentally, the album isn't out in the UK until next month. I imported it from Japan. It is available everywhere digitally, though.

Here's a couple more, while I'm here :lol:

Last post from me about Band-Maid for a while (promise!), but someone has naughtily posted the multi-angle video of their instrumental Onset (taken from the Conqueor limited edition blu-ray I mentioned before). This is easily my favourite instrumental by any band I like since Rush did YYZ back in 1981 :lol:

I've posted it to start at the version that mixes together all the different angles but they're all there if you start the vid from the beginning (I highly recommend watching Akane!).

I suspect that video might get taken down pretty quickly (rightly so), so here's the live version just in case.

Strange, I don't hear any. Love Marina's voice, back when she was with Destrose, too Posted Image

Although the best thing that happened with that line-up of Destrose was that Miho (bass) and Haruna (drums) went on to form Lovebites Posted Image
