BANDMAID‘s Best Music Ever is the only way I can describe their latest tracks, including Secret Maiko Eyes! Posted on YouTube just a week ago, it keeps their driving energy but brings traditional instruments into the mix, in a departure from their previous pure Metal style. They haven’t abandoned their previous personas, BANDMAID still exists and has their World Domination Tour ongoing, as well as an appearance on J-Melo this week (although it might be a few weeks before it airs on their NHK World broadcasts). The latest tracks from them, Domination and Dice, also show growth and improvement, as this great band becomes truly amazing. BAND-MAIKO may be a single album project, but I really hope they return to bring us more excellent music like this.
