I think Tony shared a video on facebook but I didn't watch the video probably or it was somewhere else, I can't remember but I saw their name somewhere before. When I saw your thread, I decided to watch the MV and wow !! They are really cool. I like the heavy sound.

At first, I was wondering if they were really playing or not. After seeing those videos below, I have no doubt that they are talented.

I'm really looking forward to learning more about them. They're apparently still pretty new, and there's not a lot out there on any English language sites about them.

Thank you Tony for the facebook page.

According to their artist page on Gump-rec, the band was created in 2013. With the maid concept, their lives are called "servings" and their fans "masters" (like in a Maid Cafe).

@saldiven
138$ ??? OMG
They'll their next release on iTunes.

Hrm. I hope it isn't only on iTunes. I don't own an iDevice.

Yeah, that price was ridiculous, but I'm not surprised. A few years ago when I was getting into Utada Hikaru, her physical CDs on Amazon were often $60.00+.

Yup, saw it on their Facebook page this morning.

It's the same kind of edgy, harder rock sound that they featured on Thrill. I like it. Fun guitar solo.

Finally got the chance to listen to all of their songs, including the latest one.
If their next album is more like Thrill and Real Existence, I'll definitely be a big fan :D

And thanks saldiven for introducing them to me!


I also found out that their guitarist and drummer also play in an all-girls acoustic band called mochitocheeze with 3 members of the idol group Predia.

@btgrave: From what I have read and viewed online, their newest album is going to be in the harder rock direction like the most recent two videos, which I think is a good niche for them, from a marketability standpoint. It plays a little bit off the Babymetal concept of mixing cute girls with hard rock/metal, but takes it in a different direction seeing as how the band members are all instrumentalists and can go with more of an adult vibe. I think they've got potential to be pretty marketable. Their music is interesting, they seem talented musically, and they mix in a healthy dose of sexy while staying feminine. Contrary to most female hard rock artists from the USA, they're not coming across as trashy (Joan Jett), slutty (Leda Ford), or totally messed up (Courtney Love). {Disclaimer, all of those artists were talented and made popular music, but they embraced a certain image that people in the USA seemed to automatically associate with hard rock.}

Wow!!! Having known nothing about this band before clicking on the link for Thrill, the intro hit me like a brick at about the 5 second mark. Definitely was not expecting that type of music from them based on their looks. After watching the rest of the PVs on their account, I can say they've gotten another fan.

I like them very much. I had Suriru (Thrill) stuck in my head for ages after hearing it xD I followed them on twitter and they're pretty kind enough to give me numerous replies each time I tweet them haha~ Often they tweet english phrases/sentences ^^ They're kinda good at it haha.

Here are a couple of their replies. Most are simple ones like 'Thank you' or 'Im happy' Tongue

Pretty cool that Kanami (lead guitarist) saw/heard my OneNavi cover in soundcloud- the one I linked to her. And she favorited it Happy I wish Mami would notice me like Kanami lol.

Since I heard "Thrill" for the first time, I also have the song stuck in my head. I checked their other songs and now the new MV ! I'm glad that I heard about them, they are great.

I have to say that Miku is my favorite, her little shoulder move is so cute :

I tweeted short notes of encouragement to them all yesterday, and Kanami "favorited" my compliment on her guitar playing.

Why does that give me a sense of validation.....?

Do they have an official LINE account? I know at least Kanami uses LINE a bunch.

Japan definitely has great female drummers!

Also looks like at least one song in their upcoming album will have her drum solo  Clap

Hmmm, looks like I found new band to listen to.
Better blend of voices and music than for example Destrose. Hope they will grow to be well renowned Happy
