Bomb Factory ( _ja. ボム・ファクトリー) is a musical group from Tokyo, Japan with styles influenced by 70's and 80's hardcore punk, hard rock, and heavy metal music. Although their mother tongue is Japanese, almost all the music they have produced since 1997 has English song titles and lyrics.


Brothers Jun-ya and Kazuya grew up in Yamagata and later relocated to Tokyo, where they met Joe and Shira and established their band in 1991. [ Metropolis Magazine] , an English magazine in Japan.] They played shows in and around Tokyo and Yokohama during their early years. They released their independently produced album, Explode a Bombshell in 1994 and Blade of a Knife in 1996.In 1997, they started their own independent label Monstar Records and released the split CD Monstar Cup Stage 1. This album and concurrent albums afterward contained predominantly English lyrics. During the next few years their style progressed and became more unique, attracting a larger fan base in Japan. In 1999, they began the event "High Blood Pressure" in which they and other Japanese rock bands showcase in. They have staged several of these events and still continue it today. [ Bomb Factory Power] , the official fan site in France.] In September 1999 they began individual tours in England, Holland, Germany and Belgium, making it the first time touring in Europe. Later in November they signed with Hell Hornet Records and Limited Records and released their self-titled mini-album Bomb Factory, selling over 16,000 copies. In March 2000 the tracks "Exciter" and "Deadly Silence Beach" were chosen from this album for the game Dead or Alive 2 on Dreamcast and Playstation 2. In December they gained more recognition after opening for Bad Religion during their Japanese tour.In 2001 they played many concerts and festivals in Japan with such groups as Uzumaki, Crispy Nuts, Shaka Labbits, Super Sisters, et al. In February 2002 Bomb Factory played in "The Power to Explode" tour with the band Fulltrap. After this came the "Rough Tour", spanning 32 different venues with bands such as Buddha Head, Fulltrap, Batch, and Monkey Pirate.Later in June of the same year the band began their second European tour in Germany, France and Belgium. While in France they played the "Rock Oise Festival" and received significant media coverage on radio, TV, and even made the cover of the magazine "Walked In Line". In October 2004 the album Discord (a compilation of the Fat Boost and Discord singles) was released in France and their second tour of the country began soon after. In November 2004, the album Another Day, Another Life was released.They signed with Sea Green/Toshiba-EMI in 2006 and on November 15 they simultaneously released the album Social Suicide alongside their first DVD, , commemorating the band's 15 year survival.On November 28, 2007 they released their Greatest Hits compilation album which includes one previously unreleased song, "Fly". Bomb Factory has recently signed a contract with Florida record label Bieler Bros. There are plans for a worldwide release on this label sometime in 2008.
