All what I can say about them is Awesome!

Jyou's voice is so unique

They were my first jrock girl band, actually one of the first bands I listened to in general. I love them more than SCANDAL and DESTROSE.

Not just my favourite J-rock band - they're my favourite band of any kind!
Their songs are exciting, uplifting and have strong melodic structure - always more than just one hook per song; they experiment with different styles; extremely high level of musicianship; each one is a definite character; and they don't feel they have to wiggle their bits to get noticed, they let their music speak for them. All round 11 out of 10!

Full of energy and hardworking, these funny young women always stay themselves! Their drummer is the lead singer.

Each is extremely talented, so diverse and prolific. Not just their thrash stuff, even their synth pop, or their joke songs, all of it Rocks

23 Unlucky Morpheus

Unlucky Moprhies is a Meldoic Power Metal band that features members from other high profile bands. They have one of the best drummers in Japan Fumiya of Galneryus, an oustanding Neoclassical guitarist duo Shiren and Jinya who often duo solo at amazing speeds(Founder of many Doujin Touhou bands), a Solid grooving Bass player Ogawa (music school teacher and Charm Park member), a vital member Jill the Violinist who provides this band unique melodic style and lastly the Powerful Opera esque voice one will recognize as Fuki(DollBox, Fuki Commune, exLightBringer). Together they make a powerful team and continue to impress fans with innovative ideas such as reverse music sheets or 4 arm bass solos!
