Profile Rare Japan-only melodic rock record came out in 1989 from NEC Records, with tons of synth keyboard flourishes and catchy melodic rock tracks throughout. Most of the lyrics are in Japanese, but the songs are ultra-catchy and often remind of the feel-good AOR of Dominoe or Return throughout. The band formed in the mid 80s in Nagamo released a couple of singles between 1986 and 1989 before the release of the debut album. They are still active with many live gigs around.
