Hi metal bands and fans,
I am Kumi from Tokyo, Japan. First of all, thank you very much for visiting my site and checking those brilliant bands. I hope you can find your favorite here, buy their music/merch and have fun. It could be a big help for indie bands to keep up their great music for sure and that is why I have been doing this.
I am a huge metal fan and supporting my favorite indie extreme metal bands in the world. The important point of my support work is showing my respect and gratitude to those bands for their amazing music, and I have been working on interviews, review, distribution and giveaway for spreading the word about those beautiful bands since 2009. I do it free of charge of course and never get any income from that. I do not concern about any music business, only work directly for bands, not for any middle person. So, I do not bargain with any promoter / label / whatsoever for promoting bands. I am total independent, not involved in any community nor organization of music business because I would like to keep my metal support activities away from any kind of exploiters, without ball and chain. George Orwell's "Animal Farm" perfectly explains about it. So, I do not want to show my site like any metal organization. That is why I do not raise “Indie Extreme Metal Assaults” on top, that is why it’s Kumi666.com as a person. Plus, I do not have any interests for doing Japanese street team for bands because it would only work for total closed community. It’s easier and assure to check bands’ facebook pages directly than check what street team says, isn’t it? I have been trying to spread the word with full-force about my favorite indie bands not only inside the closed place but also towards the whole metal universe for using synergies between bands here and it’s working well so far.
Music is a miracle.
I really can't thank enough to every single genius metal band for its existence and for what they have been giving us through their music: happiness, passion, hope and strength. As long as you can agree with my words, please pay for music and support metal bands for their long existence. Change the world for the better with the pure metal spirits!
If you have more interests about my band support activity, check the interview that I got by a German music webzine in 2014.
