ASTERISM’s electrifying live performance in THE DECISION was recorded at Shibuya CYCLONE in Tokyo at the sold-out final show of the band’s one-man tour which began in Nagoya on November 4 with the release of their third full-length album DECIDE.


The 90-minute set was performed by HAL-CA (guitar, vocals), MIYU (bass, chorus), and MIO (drums, chorus) in front of their diehard fans.

The title of the new album represents the band’s “determination” to step into a new territory. Since their formation in 2014, the group has built their identity around their technical performance skills and their unique “mass metal” style that resonates with the masses. By incorporating vocals, the band seeks to expand its horizons. The concert’s first half featured seven songs, leaning into their new style. The second half of the show featured the band’s popular instrumental tracks, “BLAZE,” “Gunfire,” and “Light in the Darkness,” which added fuel to the already amped-up crowd.

HAL-CA (Gt / Vo):

It was the first time that more than half of the set was vocal songs, and we were both excited and nervous about performing the shows. However, I felt that the atmosphere of the venue and the reaction of the crowd were more united than ever. I felt certain that the music we created in DECIDE is the right direction for us. At the same time, we realized there is much more we can do as an instrumental band that uses vocals as a weapon, and we’re going to further develop our ASTERISM style on stage in the future. Please look forward to seeing ASTERISM as it continues to power up!


MIYU (Ba / Ch):

Our performance from the Tokyo show of our 4-city solo tour of our new album DECIDE will be coming to you! You’ll be able to feel our tension and passion in the final show in Tokyo, where we gave it our all! The new song “PEACE”, which was performed for the first time on this tour, is also included! You won’t believe what I do in this song! Please listen to it!


MIO: (Dr / Ch):

As I witnessed the mastering process of this live recording of songs from our album DECIDE, I thought that it was a night filled with once-in-a-lifetime sounds. The energy, the spontaneity, and even our determination to make sure that our decision was the right one is all in this performance. We’re creating a new sound, mixing and matching our past as an instrumental band with our new present creating songs. Please listen to this live performance of ASTERISM, which has never been seen before or since!
