In 2010, SAKI made a splash with the debut of her band mixx. After the dissolution of mixx, she joined Mary’s Blood in 2012, and made a return to the limelight. While continuing to play with Mary’s Blood, SAKI started a new project NEMOPHILA in 2019 along with Muratatamu (Dr.) and others.

About Ediee Ironbunny:
Ediee Ironbunny is a cyborg guitarist who’s traveled from the year 2300. After Rock and distortion had disappeared from the world in his time, he has traveled back to the present day to restore the glory of rock and change history. His cyborg body was altered to withstand the pressure of time traveling; He only re-tains the parts of his human body that connect with musical instruments, like his fingertips. After his arraival in our time in November 2018, Eddie appeared at NAMM Show 2019 in California and made his name known to the world. In March the same year, he invited three female vocalists to form the rock unit IRONBUNNY. They later released the mini-album ‘Iron Hummer Alternative’ which featured 80s-style classic hard rock accented with modern-day phrasing. The overall sound has both nostalgic and contemporary elements. Ediee is a purist and believes that you can’t have rock music without long guitar solos and picking harmonics.
