Lovebites

Postby kurrupo » Wed Nov 29, 2017 2:59 pm

Went out on a limb and decided to catch these in London on Monday having heard a few good things about them. I was not disappointed! One of the best gigs of the year, the two guitarists were insanely good! They're a 5 piece, all-female band from Japan (though all the songs are in English) with plenty of thrash and power metal influence. I could genuinely see these opening the main stage one of the days and winning a load of new fans. I do worry that their aesthetic may not do them any favours though, I imagine a few people may be put off by 5 young women in white dresses and 6-inch heels. I can see really these girls making it big in the UK with the right exposure though.

Here is their latest single, see what you think! (Full album also on Spotify)

I've enjoyed what I've heard and a usually reliable source tells me they were good at last night's gig so I'd be happy to see them.

Got 2 pages in this month's Metal Hammer. Good interview and a good introduction to anyone who may be interested in them. Hopefully they'll keep getting the publicity and turn up at bloodstock next year

Just been announced for Wacken! Really gives me hope that they'll turn up at Bloodstock now too

Just gave the album a spin (does that phrase really work on Spotify? Meh) and it's ace. Would be a very welcome booking!

Glad you enjoyed it. They're great live too, think they'll go down really well and surprise a few people at Wacken
