When Megumi left Mugen Regina, the timing was such that I thought it was a mutual parting of ways; Mugen Regina has this whole fantasy / melodic metal thing going on, and Megumi’s gravure career had just gotten a big jolt from a DVD release, so clashing images and I don’t understand Japan etc. whatever.
So imagine my surprise when Soundcloud pinged me all of 10 minutes ago with a new track from Life Is Sweet Music:
If you let Soundcloud keep playing after the clip ends, you’ll get to enjoy An’z-don’s band next, channeling Tool.
That’s her all right!
It’s a good thing that Megumi’s still idoling, because she has a legitimately great voice and loads of stage presence. Solo, though, is a tough slog. As for her old unit, they’re doing their level best to move on.
The best to you, Megumi!
