It's only appropriate that we have a thread about Japanese music when we're on a forum about Japanese anime. So what bands have you listened to before? Who are your favorite artists? To start with, my favorite is a band that goes by the name, Coldrain. They're a heavy metal band, and a lot of their songs are in English. The first time I heard them was when watching the anime Rainbow Nisha (10/10 anime btw) and the intro was one of their songs. I eventually downloaded some of their albums and their music is awesome Another great band is one that goes by the name Concerto Moon. Concerto Moon is a Japanese Neoclassical metal / Power metal band formed in 1996 and led by guitarist Norifumi Shima.
