NoGoD Unleash Ferocious New Album Renovate

Japanese metal prophets NoGoD continue to spread the gospel of visual kei with sixth sermon Renovate, out today through JPU Records in the UK, Europe, USA and Canada, ahead of the band’s first performance in Canada this summer.

Founded in the depths of Tokyo’s underground metal community in 2005, flamboyant vocalist Dancho and his four apostles set out on their mission to play loud, rock hard and gain believers (or “fans” as most other bands call them).

NoGoD are disciplined in the faith of visual kei, a highly stylised movement where aesthetics and musicianship collide. Each member portrays their identity through their unique outfits and accessories. Most extreme is Dancho, usually found on stage wielding a holy-book-turned-microphone, covered in make-up and sometimes with giant buttons for eyes, like some kind of living doll.

Renovate includes NoGoD’s fiery, fast-paced single Zecchou Masquerade (Climax Masquerade), epitomised by it’s duelling guitars, thunderous drums and soaring vocals. Meanwhile, album opener VAMPIRE is a homage to classic heavy metal via J-rock and gothic subculture ­– the song’s music video will shortly be made available on YouTube outside of Japan.

NoGoD will hold their first show in Canada at The Mod Club Theatre Toronto on 29 June, followed by an appearance at Otafest 2016 at the Calgary Telus Convention Centre 2 July.

NoGoD welcomes believers of all faiths, religions and musical denominations.
