ARE YOU READY FOR ALDIOUS??

‘Radiant A’ sees Japan’s “groundbreaking” metal quintet Aldious unleash their first overseas album on 17th March 2017, out on CD and digital formats in the UK and Europe via JPU Records.

Aldious’ name is a portmanteau of ‘Ultimate’ and ‘Melodious’, two words central to the band’s ethos and sound.

Their powerful stage presence and ferociously fast guitar licks have caught international media attention, leaving American pop culture and fashion publication Nylon to name Aldious as the band that “launched heavy metal girl bands into the mainstream [in Japan]”, and for the likes of Team Rock and Revolver Magazine to include Aldious in their “top metal bands from Japan” lists.

“I’m guilty of initially judging Aldious on their looks alone,” confesses JPU Records’ CEO Tom Smith. “I reluctantly went to one of their shows and ended up being blown away. They’re so talented and enjoyable to watch, I couldn’t stop grinning! I can’t remember the last time I had this much fun at a metal show without knowing any songs.”
