PV Analysis: AND Eccentric Agent "Muyuu No Kago"

Active from 2007 - 2013, AND Eccentric Agent was comprised of Ikuma (vocals), Kili (guitar), PECO (guitar), Ken (bass) and KAJI (drums). A visual kei band formed with the concept "(nostalgia and resonance) sympathy & nostalgia", a notion embodied well in the PV for Muyuu no Kago, released in 2012. The quick cuts from the indoors to outside in autumn can be taken as merely interpreting the song's lyrics. On closer inspection, the imagery presented can be reviewed beyond simple interpretation of the lyrics to the song.

Band Feature: Overworld

Overworld is an alternative metal band hailing from Stockholm, Sweden. Though a young band formed as recently as 2012, the band’s members are hardly new to the scene, solely consisting of musicians from now disbanded but previously well-known Swedish underground acts. Playing a brand of music self-titled as “adrenaline rock ‘n’ roll metal”, the band is steadily gaining recognition for their explosive live shows, fresh take on the rock/metal genre(s) and the close relationship with their ever-expanding fanbase.

The band’s debut EP, “Perfect Anomaly”, was released digitally worldwide at May 25th 2012, instantly climbing to the top of iTunes Sweden and charting in at #12 in All Albums and #5 in Rock. This feat is made even more notable by the fact that the EP is entirely self-released, as the band has yet to sign a record deal. A music video for the track “Until We’re Dead” was released at September 22nd, hitting 7,000 views after only a single week on YouTube.

Overworld’s new single “My Reality” saw the light of day at June 1st 2013 along with a music video directed by 11frames. It reached 12,000 views in less than a week on YouTube and charted well in Sweden: #57 on Digilistan and #3 on iTunes Rock. The band also played at Sweden Rock Festival, one of the world’s biggest rock/metal festivals, for their most notable show so far.
