Interview With Japanese Metal Queens SHOW-YA

Japanese Metal Queens SHOW-YA celebrate 35th anniversary with new album release

SHOW-YA has been sitting on the throne of the Japanese female metal scene. With their national hit songs, TV appearances, and Japan’s biggest female band event held by SHOW-YA themselves, they are one of the most well-known heavy metal acts in this country, whether be it male or female. You can also find a lot of younger musicians heavily influenced by them. Commemorating their 35th anniversary, SHOW-YA is releasing a new album called Showdown. The album is filled with powerful heavy metal, backed up by their long career as musicians.

We had a chance to talk with vocalist Keiko Terada and keyboardist Miki “Captain” Nakamura in a new interview using a translator who bridged the gap between English and Japanese. Check it out below:
