- Wanna shout "cock" and "pussy" with blast beats!! - With this strong urge, the prototype of the band started in 2002, but it broke up after the first gig. The band was re-formed as MANKOLOVER* in the end of 2003 by Kohei Takeda(Gt&Vo), who craved to crush his frustration for shitty workaday life. Since then, MANKOLOVER has given out-of-ordinary gigs, messing around the clubs in Tokyo! From 2004 to 2006, as a trial-and-error approach, MANKOLOVER has changed some members, sounds and performance styles. On the summer of 2004, MANKOLOVER released 1st demo, and it is sold out at once. In the end of this year, MANKOLOVER released "GRAVTION / MANKOLOVER SPLIT CD" from Starry Record and held the release party. But after this show, original members, Hiroshi Kashiwaba(Ba&Cho) and Yusuke Seki(Dr) left the band. Alternately, Shunichirou Sekiguchi joined MANKOLOVER at the beggining of 2005. In this year, MANKOLOVER shared a stage with PEACEMAKER(Rich Hoak), HAEMORRHAGE, many Japanese eminent heavy metal and hardcore bands. At the beggining of 2006, MANKOLOVER organized the Japan tour of COCK AND BALL TORTURE and toured with them around Tokyo. In autmn of this year, MANKOLOVER played in Asakusa Extreme to support the Japan tour of IMPALED and GENERAL SURGERY. At the beginning of 2007, Shunichirou Sekiguchi left the band and MANKOLOVER stopped their activity for about one year. In 2008, on the spring, Shuhei Kamada and, on the summer, Kotaro Omachi joined MANKOLOVER. With this mighty 3 piece lineup, MANKOLOVER restarted their activity. In May of 2009, MANKOLOVER released their 1st mini album called "LIBIDORHYTHM" from Voidragoon Productions. On the summer of this year, MANKOLOVER is going to have the 1st oversea tour.
*"MANKO" is the Japanese word meaning "cunt", "pussy" or "vagina".
