BAND-MAID – Interview in english (2015)

Band-Maid new music video : Real Existence

Band-Maid grabbed a little attention earlier this year with the release of the groove-heavy song “Thrill.”

BAND-MAID

Now they’ve got a new single, “Real Existence,” with the girls performing in front of and inside a Shinto shrine.

For those who don’t know (which is likely everyone but me and 3 other members), Band-Maid is an all-girl metal band from Japan that adopted that country’s infamous maid cafe gimmick in their look. “Thrill” was even written up by Guitar World. The guitarist, bassist and drummer are outstanding, especially the guitarist, whose solos are killer.
