Plot Summary: Detroit Metal City (DMC) is a quickly rising independent death metal band. They garner fame by performing wild live shows and writing songs filled with hate, violence, and rape. The band is fronted by Sōichi Negishi, who takes on the stage name Krauser II. On stage he is a wild, unchained beast. Off-stage he is a tranquil, tender-loving person who enjoys Swedish pop music. He hates himself as Krauser and his two personalities collide, making his private life very difficult.
