I figure a few people here have heard of ABS. They are one of favorite bands in terms of sound, and their lyrics have been getting better and better with each new single. They have only seven songs out (three of which are singles): "Nephilim", "Lost Reason", "Stay Away", Innocent Sorrow", "[email protected] $HoW", "Howling" and "Nervous Breakdown". Their first album is due in mid-October; I believe the date was the 16th or 17th, but I'll have to check on that.
They are fronted by Takanori Nishikawa, better known as T.M. Revolution. Anyone who has listened to him knows he has powerful vocals, and I think ABS does him a lot of justice, since a lot of his solo work was glittered-up and he showcased himself as being very effeminate. Also in the band are Toshiyuki Kishi, who does keyboard and scratching, as well as programming, Hiroshi Shibasaki on the electric guitar, and "SUNAO", who also plays guitar. There are also two other less "official" members, Kozy Hasegawa who does the drums, and "Ikuo", who provides the bass.
They have also provided two of their songs for use in anime series, which I'm sure is how some of you first heard of them: "Innocent Sorrow" for D.Grayman, and "Howling" for Darker Than Black.
My favorite songs by them are "[email protected] $HoW", "Howling" and "Nervous Breakdown", and I love their PVs for "Innocent Sorrow" and "Nephilim".
