EAT YOU ALIVE is one of the top rock bands in Japan even though it was formed just five years ago back in 2008. The band started with another name, MaveRick, back in 2006 in Nagoya with members from other bands. They play a very distinguishable style of rock and heavy music. The members: Kenj (bass), Shoya (guitar), Mukuro (now Ryohei, guitar), Kray (now Hiro, vocals) and Makoto (drums) were the first ones in the band. They played a lot of gigs in Nagoya where they created a name for themselves by even doing the distribution of their singles themselves after every performance. They were lucky and were able to perform all through the country in those first years.
To fans delight their songs were featured in omnibuses so the band started to gain even more fame and this was only in 2007. The band released their first album while still touring.
Surprisingly, in the summer of 2008 fans got the sad news that the band was planning to stop activities. But the worries were very short as they announced that the only thing that they were going to do was stop MaveRick and start making music with the name that we know today EAT YOU ALIVE. It was then when Kray and Mukuro changed their names to Hiro and Ryohei. They have released many singles to great success since then like “Jennifer/hanamizuki”, “Adult children of alcoholic” and “Atrocity and blue”.
They haven’t released an album in quite a while to their fans sadness but that will change really soon as they are going to release their second album in just two days: April 24th. The album, “Apocalypsis” will be released in two different editions each of them with many gems that you wouldn’t like to miss!
