OVUM are a four-piece instrumental rock band originating from Tokyo, Japan. Since forming in 2006, they have performed over 200 gigs, both nationally and internationally.

 

New inspiration gained during their 2014 European tour spurred OVUM to radically change their musical direction. This development saw the band take on a more expressive style of playing defined by the members as "metal-oriented instrumental rock," with a heavier and more aggressive approach built onto their core sound.

 

 

 

 

2006年、東京にて結成。 ドラム、ベース、2本のギターによって構成されるインストゥルメンタルロックバンド。 これまでにアジア、アメリカ、ヨーロッパでツアーを敢行する等、日本国内にとどまらず活動の場を海外まで広げている。

 

2014年のヨーロッパツアーで受けたインスピレーションをきっかけに音楽性の転換を決意。よりヘヴィーでアグレッシブなアプローチを取り入れた、メタルオリエンテッドインストゥルメンタルロックとも呼べる新たな表現を獲得した。
