miimi

This band might be up Deathangel's alley.
They're relatively new, having formed in 2002, releasing their first demo in 2004 and their first album only a few days ago on January 9, 2008.
Their music has a soft, gloomy Portishead atmosphere to it but occasionally erupts into a chaotic wall of harmonics that would make Rin Toshite Sigure and Radiohead applaud. Apparently, miimi has toured in the past with te' and 9mm parabellum bullet. That alone should give you a hint of how powerful they can sound.

The singer/guitarist Yuko kind of looks like YUKI (ex-Judy & Mary), at least from the album cover. Her voice has an ethereal feel similar to Uchimura of school food punishment but she can certainly wail out with intensity and passion in a vein similar to Cocco or Bjork.

The band consists of 4 members:
Ken (drums), Masa (bass), Shinya (guitar), Yuko (gitaa, boukalu)

Here's the album "ephyra" for download:
Mod Edit: Link removed...plz post in right section

Don't let the sample clips on MySpace fool you, their sound can be more powerful and heavy than 90% of post-rock bands.
The harmonics they're able to conjur on the guitars is nothing short of amazing (esp the last 2 min of the last song: Hai no Hanabira). This is the type of band that probably sounds a million times better live.
They're playing at Shibuya O-Crest 2 days BEFORE I get to Japan. Dammnit!! (Plus Midori are playing on the 25th when I arrive in the evening so probably won't make that gig either! sucks!)
Hope you guys enjoy listening to the album.
