Woopak's J-Rock Selection: MELL From Sapporo Japan!

Mell is a Japanese singer who hails from Sapporo Japan. She is a vocalist of “I’ve Sound” but since then she has released many singles and one solo album.
 
She made international fame when she sang the theme for the anime series BLACK LAGOON. I really don’t know much about how rock, punk and techno differs from one another but I do somewhat get reminded of Bjork when I listen to her music. Her work mostly feels like a fusion of dance, rave with very rebellious and cryptic lyrics. I do like the videos and the raw attitude that she exudes in them, I am impressed as to how she looks like a singing YUREI (long-haired ghost) in the vid of Red Faction. I have listed some of her solo works:
 
Under Superstition, Way beyond there, Kill, No vain, On my own, Permit Proof, Kicks! Scope, Red fraction, The first finale in me, Egen, Virgin's high! Sabaku no Yuki.

  
 
I have also attached some vids of her works.

RED FACTION Lyrics: (if this isn't rebellious then I dunno what is LOL!)

 
I have a big gun
I took it from my Lord
Sick with Justice
I just wanna feel you
Im your angel
Only a ring away
You make me violate you
No matter who you are

Its all up to you
No one lives forever
Been burn in the hell
By all those pigs out there
Its alway been hell
From when I was born
They make me violate them
No matter who they are

Get down on your knees
Get a good head on you shoulders
if its for your guys
Go to the end of the earth
Do what you think
Give it with dedication
Ill put out your misery

Have no prayer
So, I keep the gun with me
For my safety
Ill do it with no sweat
They mean business
No time for sissy pig

Queen of ocean
Sing "the Volga" to you
Ne need to think about it
You do it or you die
Those arent tears
Dont let trick on you

I am hard as steel
Get out of my way
Pay back all at once
Suck away the tender part
You made a mess

For Christ sake, this rotten world
Shit out of luck
Go with my vision
Light up the fire
Right on the power
Weapon... I have it all

Get down on your knees
Get a good head on you shoulders
if its for your guys
Go to the end of the earth
Do what you think

Give it with dedication
Ill put out your misery
You made a mess
For Christ sake, this rotten world
Shit out of luck

Go with my vision
Light up th fire
Right on the power
Weapon... I have it all

Oh wow, I've heard a lot of her work without even realizing it! She's far hotter than I imagined as well. Woop, you keep this up and I'm going to have to start ordering import CDs along with my anime. I don't need another expense! lol Very interesting write-up though, and sorry I've been slacking on keeping up with your reviews, work keeps getting in the way of my plans. However, the heads up is always welcomed and appreciated!

I know what you mean. I started digging through my old cds to post a new music review. No worries about the reviews, buddy, but we do look forward to more of your reviews. I'm going to busy next week so I may disappear.

Once again WP you bring forth some more great musical selections, dude she is great. Those videos are excellent man she looks great in them, and you called it with that vid for Red Faction.

Great lyrics, hot singer, rockin' music... I'm in LOVE! You may have to burn me a CD of this. Damn good stuff!

By the way, this video of Red Fraction is slightly better picture quality.
May 02, 2010
Sure thing, buddy. Thanks for the link to the HQ video...changed it!

It kind of reminds me of the industrial pop trend that we had after Nine Inch Nails did "The Downward Spiral" album. Sort of like a Japanese version of Garbage.
