    I did another Japanese pop song death metal cover. Hahaha...

    Some of you may remember my death metal cover of the song "Sakuranbo" by Japanese pop singer Ai Otsuka. For some reason, it's my most popular video on my YouTube channel, and people have been telling me to do another death metal cover of a J-pop song. The most common suggestion has been the incredibly embarassing group AKB48 (which has the Guiness record for the most members in a music group). Yesterday someone I work with was kind of hounding me about it, so when I got home, I decided on doing AKB48's member Tomomi Itano's solo debut single "Dear J." I arranged it for guitar and bass yesterday night, programmed the drums today, and recorded all the guitars, bass, drums, and vocals today... so it might be kind of shitty sounding (much like Sakuranbo was ).

    The record label she belongs to has deleted every single version of the song on YouTube, including the music video... HOWEVER! This shortened live version hasn't been deleted (2:31 instead of 3:45):

    And here is my death metal version :

    Definitely a step up from the original
    I play bass in a band called Weaponlord.

    I also play bass in a band called Northern Crown.

    I used to play bass in a band called Faethom.
