On the show bass-player miho comments on LOVEBITES winning Best New Band in the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards 2018; “When we played in the UK last year people from Metal Hammer came to see our show. We wanted to make it abroad since we formed. People say heavy metal was born in the UK. Like football or baseball players we wanted to play where it all started. When we mix and produce our CDs we hire engineers from abroad. Our sound is completely non-Japanese heavy metal. But our melody lines still have a Japanese essence. We combine the best of Japanese and foreign heavy metal. That’s special about us.”
LOVEBITES will be in Europe this August, performing at Wacken Open Air in Germany on 4 August and Bloodstock Open Air in the UK on 10 August.
Brand new EP Battle Against Damnation is out now.
