Talk about hardcore! He's part of a two-piece thrash-metal band Nanahara Shuya (character from the fuckin' cool Battle Royale) and has put out four records so far.

Their latest work is featured on "Cross the Unjust Line" a compilation CD against WTO.

It's been awhile since I did stuff for a band.
