The fierce album sees the band – who have supported the likes of Marty Friedman and DragonForce outside of Japan – work with some of their country’s biggest names in metal, including two arrangements by BABYMETAL producer Yuyoyuppe (“KARATE”, “Megitsune”) and guest guitar spots from Sgt. Luke Takamura III, the former shredder of heavy metal akuma Seikima-II; and Miki*sun-go*Igarashi, guitarist of Japan’s pioneering all-girl metal band SHOW-YA.
This special edition of of FATE features an exclusive digipak design, and includes a poster and lyric transliterations. It will be available simultaneously with the digital release of Mary’s Blood previous album Bloody Palace (click here for album sampler) and has been released due to high demand from fans across Europe.
JPU Records founder and CEO Tom Smith comments, “We get a lot of requests from fans of Japanese metal for bands to work with, but rarely on the same scale as with Mary’s Blood. I flew to Tokyo to see what all the fuss was about and instantly knew this band had the power and skill to go international. Stuff the language barrier, these ladies are fluent in heavy metal. The guitar solos remind me of why I fell in love with rock music as a kid, and make me just as excited.”
