Glory, Glory / Lovebites are a Japanese face-melting power Metal frenzy
20 May 2021
Like fallen angels playing the devil’s music, Lovebites return with their thunderous and impressive new five-track EP ‘Glory, Glory, To the World’.
Lovebites – Glory, Glory, To The World (JPU Records)
CD and Vinyl Release: 28 May 2021
Words: Johnny Churchill
Out now digitally and coming to CD and vinyl in late May, this record explodes into a face-melting power Metal frenzy which has to be heard to be believed.
The opening track ‘Glory To The World’ has a vast uplifting symphonic chorus and a twin guitar lead break section that would turn the likes of Maiden and Priest green with envy.
‘No Time To Hesitate’ is a straight-ahead power Metal brute that allows the band to show off their technical skills, with astonishing power drumming from Haruna, utterly ferocious lead guitar work, impassioned vocals from Asami. It’s insanely catchy.
With shades of Epica’s superb ‘Attack on Titan’, this EP features the band’s first theme song from an anime. ‘Winds of Transylvania’ is the theme song to vampiric anime Vladlove, from directors Mamoru Oshii and Junji Nishimura (Ghost in the Shell).
Lovebites have described this record as “music full of feelings of salvation and light, full of a positive power unlike anything else in the history of Lovebites” and it certainly hits the mark.
