The Microhead 4N’s is a pretty new J-rock band formed in August 2011. They just released their first album in August 2012. The band is formed with members coming from different disbanded groups. Therefore, you can hear a lot of critics about them. But even though they were in other bands before, it doesn’t mean they don’t have talent. On the contrary, it’s a good thing they are still trying to pursue their dreams and use their talent by integrating a new band. The Microhead 4N’s shows potential, they have very talented musicians and a very good singer. They released only one album, but it’s a good one. As they are doing an European tour this year, Japako Music got to know about them and we are pretty glad we did. As we think they have talent and the potential to have success.
As for the members, we have the singer Ricky who has a very good vocal skills. He is a bit weird though when you see him live or in interview, but weird is always good. Two very good guitarist who are Kazuya and SHUN, they were both in the band Fanatic Crisis. Fortunately, we can still hear their amazing guitar skills now they are in The Microhead 4N’s. Of course, the two most famous members are both ex-members of D’espairsray, the bassist Zero and the drummer Tsukasa, those two talented musicians are already known and it’s a good thing we can still hear them now, because they are really talented.
It’s pretty rare to have a j-rock band touring in Europe, they seem kind of afraid and not at ease when it comes to go outside Japan, mostly due to the language barrier, but at least, The Microhead 4N’s is trying and we should give them our support just for that.
Their album „A beginning from the end“ has a very good sound, the songs are nice to listen to. It’s catchy and full of energy. There’s very good instrumental parts and Ricky is giving a nice atmosphere to every song with his great voice. „Hello my clone“ which is the single of this album is a wonderful song, with a good rock sound, we definitely advise you to listen to it.
Finally, we would just end this presentation by saying, if you like j-rock, you should listen to them, they have potential, and we want to give them the chance to prove themselves. We will wait for a second album and won’t hesitate to still support them in the future!
