February 16, 2012 – Japanese screamo metal band Dazzle Vision performed two live shows last week as special invited guests of American rock band Evanescence. Performing songs from their recent album “Kirari,” vocalist Maiko sported her new electric-pink hair style for the capacity crowds at Zepp Tokyo (Feb. 9) and Zepp Nagoya (Feb. 10).
Dazzle Vision – “Like I’m not here”
Popular in the Japanese indies scene for their hard rock sound and Maiko’s alternating melodic/death-voice vocals, Dazzle Vision was formed in June 2003.
Dazzle Vision released their first album “Origin of Dazzle” in November of 2006. Their second album “Camellia Japonica” was released in April 2007, followed by an 11-city tour of Japan. After selling out of the first presses of “Origin of Dazzle” and “Camelia Japonica,” their 3rd album “Crystal Children” hit #1 on HMV’s pre-sale chart and #2 on Tower Records pre-sale chart prior to its official release in November 2008. Their 5th album “Kirari” made the top 10 pre-sale charts at Tower Records and HMV in 2011.
In April 2010, Dazzle Vision performed live for 4,000 American fans at Sakura-Con in Seattle, WA. In February 2012, they were chosen as the opening act for American rock band Evanescence in Tokyo and Nagoya.
