Matenrou Opera

Despite the name, Matenrou Opera have nothing to do with opera; in fact, they're a Japanese visual-kei metal band – think make-up, keytars, flamboyant costumes and – of course – big hair. Their tunes are a cheesy blend of symphonic metal and alternative rock, a genre that's generating a lot of buzz in the far East's metal scene. See the band at Amsterdam's Melkweg on 9 July 2017.
