Music / Lynch

lynch. is a Japanese Alternative Metal / Metalcore band formed in 2004. Formed by ex-Deathgaze vocalist Hazuki, the band is part of the Nagoya kei scene. The band has released eight full-length albums, one EP and fifteen singles. The band was signed to the independent label Marginal Works in 2004 and signed to CLJ Records in 2007. In 2011 they switched labels from Marginal Works to the major Japanese label King Records.
