Introduction

Last modification: 2017-01-23

メトロノーム (read: metronome) are a band originating from Japan and were active between 1998 and 2009 and re-formed in Autumn 2016. They had quite some line-up changes with Sharaku (vocals) and Fukusuke (guitar) being the only original members.

They said that they traveled through time from the year 2005 to 1998 to boost their record sales, hence their futuristic themes and outfits. In 2005 they however pretended that they never said this ;)

メトロノーム create electronic punk & rock music, mixed with heavy metal, some dance influences and quite some old video game sounds. Most (mini-)albums start with an ambient soundtrack to set the mood.

After quite some singles, mini-albums and albums they released two compilations in 2008 with newly recorded versions of well-known songs and announced that they would be "shutting down" after their last Japanese gig on May 31st 2009. They however released a new single in September 2016 and a new album is scheduled for release in March 2017.
