Visual Kei Metal Band DEVILOOF Release ‘Damned’ EP [Japan]

DEVILOOF, a highly acclaimed metal band from Osaka, has captured the attention of fans in Japan and around the world for their intense and unforgettable live performances. The band built their name by incorporating a wide range of underground music genres such as deathcore, slamming, burdeath, and grindcore to create their unique sound. Today, DEVILOOF is generating excitement among fans with their major debut, marked by the release of their new EP titled “DAMNED.” The band has raised the bar with their impressive level of musicality and expressive performances in the EP, making it difficult to believe that this is their first major release. Get ready to be blown away by DEVILOOF’s unique sound and style as they make their mark in the world of metal music.

With such an impressive line-up of talent, DEVILOOF is poised to deliver a powerful and unforgettable EP that will challenge the world. Fans can look forward to experiencing the band’s unique blend of music and visuals like never before. The new EP “DAMNED” features music production by the world-renowned sound engineer Jeff Dunne, who has previously worked with notable metal bands such as Motionless in White, Chelsea Grin, and Crystal Lake. With Dunne’s exceptional talent, fans can expect an exceptional sound quality that will take their listening experience to the next level. The artwork for “DAMNED” will feature the design of Toshihiro Egawa, who is known for his illustrations for top bands such as Babymetal, SiM, and Crossfaith.

To mark DEVILOOF’s major debut and their latest EP release, the band has also released a new music video for “False Self,” the lead track from “DAMNED”. The song stemmed from the vocalist Keisuke’s dilemma about the band’s capability despite the reputation the band gained at the time. The twin vocals of Keisuke and Ray, coming across as fusing anger and sorrow, and the touching cathartic melody that could feel like life-saving from the bottom of despair symbolizes DEVILOOF’s current location: coming out of the past dark times and moving forward with their heads up.

While the music video for “Damn,” released before “False Self,” draws attention not only domestically but internationally with the insanely terrifying visual images, the remarkable visual images and sound of “False Self” add an intriguing taste to the band and turn out to be the rich creative outlet full of musical expressions that exceed the expectation as the first major release.

To the excitement of their fans, DEVILOOF announced their new live show dubbed as “RUIN” on 29 April in Shibuya’s QUATTRO, ten days after the release to celebrate their new EP “DAMNED.” Don’t miss out this opportunity to witness the brand new chapter of DEVILOOF. is an underground Asian music news website created for the sole purpose of supporting our own world.
