A -Anonymous Confederate Ensemble- - "Black Butterfly"

I randomly found this video while browsing on Youtube today, and thought I'd share it with you guys, and also apologize for my lack of posts recently ^_^*

This song is by the band A -Anonymous Confederate Ensemble- (Also known as "A(ACE)," or "A(エース)") from Japan, a group that is part of the visual kei scene. 
They combine so many genres in their music it's hard to narrow them down to one genre - I've heard them combine jazz fusion, gothic symphonic, hard rock, and classic metal influences all in one song before - but as far as a description of this song goes, it's heavy, features rock vocals, both guitar and violin solos, and their violin player, Rookie, is playing an electric violin and is INCREDIBLY talented!
This song "Black Butterfly" is their newest single.
Hope you enjoy!

~~~~Edit: So I guess "Black Butterfly" is a semi-cover of Metallica's "Enter Sandman," and their other song, "A Cruel Angel's Thesis," is a cover of the Evangelion Theme song. They're not a cover band, but let's face it, covers are awesome and a good way to get publicity. Yeah!


  1. No idea if you really care anymore but the violin player is called Rookie(tricky japanese hehe) and they aren't a real cover band. Like you Black Butterfly ist just a semi-cover and Angel Thesis was just used because it's a famous song (especially in Japan) so that people should listen to this song at first to get to know their style ^_^

  2. Is Rookie Fiddler Violin
