the band apart Japan
For the deathcore band from Spain please fix your tags to TheBandApart. the band apart was founded in 1997 by Arai, Kawasaki and Kogure, (with Arai on bass) former middle-school classmates sharing a common interest in metal, especially Metallica and Megadeth. They initally were a metal cover band, and named themselves after Quentin Tarantino's production group A Band Apart. However, with no clear musical direction aside from covers, Kogure withdrew as a result of internal discord.
