********EDIT/UPDATE************

Sorry it took us so long to get some new stuff out there. We now have 2 full songs and not just a teaser anymore! You can check them out here:
https://soundcloud.com/kaioken-band

http://www.youtube.com/user/OfficialKaioken

We are also running a kickstarter, and the video features a lot of our music in the works, that one is right here (Any help would be awesome, thanks!!!):

I'm really happy that we got so much positive feedback from you all about the teaser.

Our song "Severim" is about Nicholas D. Wolfwood from Trigun and you can see the lyrics on the song's page.

"Perserverance" is about the anime Wolf's Rain.

Let us know what you think!!

Post-hardcore nostalgia. The instruments remind me of Alexisonfire. Keep it up, it's really good. I would love to be playing guitar in a band like this right now.

Thanks a lot! Alexisonfire is awesome. Yeah it's really fun to play the instrumentals in a band like this. I can't wait to get the newer material released. I feel like our newer stuff is more up to date with the times. The song in this video is one of our first songs.

@OmnileoneS Thank you! I'm stoked you like it!

@ EricOfficially Definitely! Our singer is moving down to us next week and hopefully we can pick up the pace on stuff. Once we record a couple more songs we're going to try to plan a tour, or get onto someone else's tour. UT is definitely in range of anywhere we could go, so hopefully we can make it to you! That'd be awesome.

Sounds more like Metalcore than Post-Hardcore to me.
Anyways, not bad. Will definetly keep my eyes on this.

Yeah, with this song it's a bit more metalcore-ish than post-hardcore; however a lot of our other songs probably have a less metal feel to them. Hopefully I can get some of them uploaded soon.

Hey guys were over a third of the way of reaching our goal. If you'd like to support us and help us write more songs about anime, (we could take requests) it would mean a lot!!
