There are two bands called Bomb Factory. Chronologically:

2) Bomb Factory is an English post-punk band formed in 2003.

————————————————————

1) Japan’s Bomb Factory (Japanese: ボム・ファクトリー) originally wrote and sang lyrics in 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. 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.

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.
