The Japanese rock band BAND-MAID released the music video for the first song off its upcoming new album WORLD DOMINATION to be released on Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14) in Japan. The CD will be released Mar. 2 in the US, UK, Europe, and Canada and will include English translations and transliterations, according to the JPU Records website.
The all-female band formed in 2013 has steadily built up a loyal following for its solid performance of aggressive heavy metal music juxtaposed with the frilly visuals of the members’ maid outfits. In addition to playing to sold-out crowds in Japan, the band has toured Mexico, Hong Kong, and Europe and performed at conventions around the world.
The music video for “Domination” features the members busily plotting their takeover of the world, which has been the band’s ultimate goal since its inception.
