Both the song and the video are very very cool. Love the instrumental breakdowns are the solos.

Yeah, I think World Domination might incorporate a international tour, I mean how can they not?
Its similar thing with Scandal's Hello World, I think it may go without saying lol.

I thought the same thing when I saw the title of the new album.  Hopefully they do this.  I would love to finally see them live.

I think all the songs in the album have English Title, though I don't think there are any song in english.

I purchased digital copies of both of their full-length albums on iTunes Philippines. My thoughts on the overall musicality on World Domination is far superior than every past albums and EPs they have released. However, its production is way too polished compared to their debut album Just Bring It. Otherwise, It's a very good sophomore effort by BAND-MAID.

After listening to all of their songs, Take Me Higher from Just Bring It is current favorite. It has the feel and grit of an action film theme song.

I got the album a couple weeks ago and have listened to it a few times.  Just like all their other albums, I like it lot.  There are some really good, hard rockin' tunes; fierce riffs by Kanami; and Akane and Misa make a heck of a rhythm section.  At times they remind a lot of Halestorm, which from me is a compliment.

Curious if anyone gets to see them live what they think.  I have yet to find a live video on the internet where I have been impressed with the vocals.  Miku is generally pretty good live, but Saiki always sounds like she's struggling.  The rest of band always sounds good, but unlike Scandal the vocals don't come across as well in the live forum as on record.

My daughter bought me the album and I have to agree with you, still a welcome addition to my collection though.

I saw Band-Maid in Nagoya on April 6th.

After getting to the venue, I posted on FB to a fan group to see what other international fans were there. One of the guys comes up and introduces himself. He had an extra ticket 'cuz someone ended up not coming with him from Texas. So, he gave me his extra ticket; my ticket was 175, and he gave me 24!!!

So, I spent the entire show on the rail right in front of Saiki.

Man, was that Nagoya crowd crazy and energetic. As soon as the intro music started, the whole crowd surged forward, and I was absolutely squashed by hundreds of fans. I kind of felt bad for the two small ladies behind me who had to position themselves just to either side to see around me; though, they seemed a lot less fazed by the crush of people that I was. I didn't really expect it....

Anyway, 26 songs later, the show's over. They don't mess around, not a lot of MC time, very little chit-chat with the audience....they just hammer you with song after song. I was wiped out by the end of the show.

That's great you got to see Band-Maid perform in Japan.

How were the vocals?  I have yet to come across a live video of them where I was impressed with the singing.  The playing is always great, but the vocals never seem as strong as, say, Scandal is live compared to on album.

The vocals were fine. I think most of the live performance videos you've seen have been from people's cell phones where the microphone quality is crappy.

Now, that being said, there are very few bands where the live performance vocal quality is as close to the studio album quality as is Scandal's. That's one of the biggest things that impresses me about Scandal in a live show; it's obvious they spend a bunch of time practicing and refining their craft.

So, let's put it this way. If a band's studio albums are their "10" (as in the best they can perform) on a scale of 1=10, Scandal's live shows are a 9.5. Band-Maid's are closer to an 8.5 on musical quality (so, about 85% as good as the studio album), but the energy they put into playing is WAY higher than Scandal's (like, off the chart higher).

To put it in comparison, at SCAFES, Scandal played 27 songs starting at 4:30 PM ending at 7:15 PM (2.75 hours), including their intermission, a costume change, and encore. At the Nagoya show, Band-Maid played 26 songs between 7:00 PM and 9:00 PM (2.00 hours). Scandal shows are a ton of fun, but they take a lot of time to chit-chat with the audience between songs, so the overall feeling is pretty relaxed. Band-Maid starts out hard and just runs with you until it's over.

I have a question about the CD + Blu Ray edition of World Domination, the Blu Ray disc is it region-free (ABC) ?

I believe it is Region 2, but I've also seen people on the fan facebook page from the USA say they could play it without any trouble.

It doesn't say on the box - but I can play it on my Blu-Ray player fine (meant for region B).

Hence, it's region free (Japan is region A). I do find that I never have a problem with Japanese music Blu-Rays.

Ah, you're kidding me?  They're finally coming to Los Angles and it's the weekend I'm going to be playing a music festival in Arizona.  

Thank you, @btgrave.  I didn't know they were coming here until I read your message.  I am glad they are finally coming over.  Hope it's a great show.
