International release of album “Bloody Bride”
Let’s kick it off with the album news! BRIDEAR’s album Bloody Bride, which officially released on April 14 via Avex Trax in Japan, is getting a physical and digital international release on May 7. While this edition isn’t out yet as we speak, you can however pre-order it today through the UK and US label “Setsuzoku Records”.
With a balance between classic western metal and Japanese metal, the album is said to be the female rockers’ best work so far. What’s interesting is that we also see Janne Da Arc’s guitarist “you” and keyboardist kiyo taking part in one of the compositions.
Bloody Bride marks the band’s first international release and to make it extra special, there’s a bunch of exclusive content included. Besides a reworked album artwork, an exclusive track “The Moment” is added to the tracklist, a song featured in anime Kengan Ashura as the theme song of the character “Chiba Takayuki”. While supplies last, two double-sided printed guitar picks will come with your order; the prints are based on the international edition album artwork.
