Japanfiles.Com Launches a New Category Today - Japanese Hardcore.

Following last week's release of female-fronted hard rock band DAZZLE VISION, six hardcore rock and punk bands are added today (with even more on the way) as JapanFiles.com continues to expand its roster of over 200 Japanese artists available for legal purchase through its website.


Guitar - Hiromiti Kanazawa
Bass/Vocals - Tetsuji Ogzsawara
Drums - Katsuya Miyoshi

"ampcharwar" means to war with an amp.

Guitarist Kanazawa and bassist Ogasawara met in Seattle. After returning back to Japan they formed ampcharwar in Tokyo. In 2005 drummer Miyoshi joined the band.

Self-described as "heavy electronica instrumental punk grunge," ampcharwar attempts to cross all of these genres during their live performance.
