MAN WITH A MISSION, or rather known as MWAM for short, is a Japanese rock band formed in 2010, where it consists of five members wearing differently designed wolf masks, which was their trademark when they started out. Besides that their stage names are really interesting too!
Why did they wear the wolf mask?
Before they became popular, they came up with a s story as to why they wore the wolf masks, which involves them being created as the “Ultimate Life Form” by Jimi Hendrix who was described by the band as being the doctor of the guitar and master wolf biologist. And so they were frozen in Antarctica for years, and have been listening to all kinds of music from over the world while being frozen, before they escaped and emerge to the Japanese music scene.
What made them so popular?
The band started out live gigs at Shibuya, and then a tour to America in late 2010. However, they did not gain much popularity until in the late 2016s for the stage of “FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL ’16” and “ÄIR JAM”. On top of that, they were also opened to the anime scene where they did the opening songs for various popular animations such as “The Seven Deadly Sins” and “Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans”.
Welcome to the New World
As the caption states, welcome to the new world! MAN WITH A MISSION first EP since they did their major debut in 2011. It can be said to be one of the collectables as this could no longer be found in the market due to its limited quantity.
