☼ 聖飢魔II「悪魔が来たりてヘヴィメタる」 || Seikima-II - Akuma Ga Kitarite Heavy Metal [May 2008 re-post]



The band's name, 聖飢魔II, which literally means the "Holy Devouring Demon II", is a play on the term seikimatsu (世紀末) or "the end of the century". It is also an abbreviation of the phrase Seinaru mono ni kieteiru akuma ga futatabi (tsū) yomigaeru (聖なる物に飢えている悪魔がII(ふたた)び蘇る the demon that devours holiness has resurrected again). According to the mythology created by the band to promote their music, the band members are a group of demons preaching a religion in order to propagate Satan through the use of heavy metal music. Each member is a demon kami of a different hierarchical class with His Excellency Demon Kogure being leader of the demons and His Majesty Damian Hamada being the "Crown Prince of Hell". In accordance to the prophecy and after completing the world conquest, the band would disband at the end of the century on December 31, 1999 at 23:59:59... and so they did.
[updated comment] The 25th Anniversary of Debut on the Earth has begun! Prepare for the 聖飢魔II I.C.B.M. (Inter Continental Black Mass) TOUR!
聖飢魔II was my favorite heavy metal / hard rock band from Japan back in the '80s. Over the many years, they went through several line-up changes, several musical directions... sometimes with no hint of metal or rock, but that didn't matter to me.
"Akuma Ga Kitarite Heavy Metal" is their debut release, and it is very much within the heavy metal realm!
For fans of Ian Gillan-esque vocal stylings (but not a clone), and music of early- Yngwie, Dokken, Loudness, Krokus, Judas Priest, etc.
