Well, THIS is interesting!

I love to find out about things that STANDS OUT and this band is news for me.

Crow×Class is a Visual Kei band where all members play traditional Japanese instruments and they are all professional musicians.

Their choice of instruments gives their music a quite unique and interesting sound. It’s energetic metal with a major ethnic touch; traditional Japanese sound mixtured with rock. Wonderful!

They had their debut show in August 2011 at Rokumeikan in Megurowhich and it seems like their performances often are spiced up with theatrical elements, which makes me really curious.
