Mamoru Oshii's latest slapstick comedy will arrive on Crunchyroll soon
The official YouTube channel for the all-female Japanese heavy metal band LOVEBITES has posted a full music video for their latest song "Winds Of Transylvania." The heavy rock tune will be featured as the OP theme for the internationally acclaimed director Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in The Shell)'s highly-anticipated new anime project VLAD LOVE. The five-member band has been also appointed as the second official ambassador for the anime, alongside the first ambassador BlooDye.
The band was formed in 2016, then made their major debut from Victor Entertainment in the following year, and has been active worldwide, including the performances at the Wacken Open Air heavy metal festival in Germany and Bloodstock Open Air in the UK. The anime's producer made an offer to LOVEBITES for their overwhelming presence and power, but also for their fateful band name and their all-female band composition which is appropriate for "Girl Meets Girl," one of the themes of the anime.
In addition to using a lot of footage from the anime, the band's vocalist asami dresses as a vampire in a black costume inspired by the anime's main character, Mai Vlad Transylvania. Another version of this MV that is not using the anime footage will be included in the bonus DVD for the band's new mini-album "Glory, Glory To The World" to be released on March 10, 2021.
