The Kanmuri is a Japanese heavy metal band that have been active since 2003. It is essentially the solo project of charismatic
frontman Tetsuya Kanmuri, and it was formed after the disbandment of his previous band, So What?, which occurred just a few
months prior. Like So What?, the material of The Kanmuri is comedic in nature, which particularly shines through their over-the-
top live shows and music videos, as well as their comical lyrics.
