Biography

THE PIASS/妃阿甦 was formed around 1990 in Sapporo with the first member line up of vocalist Chihiro, guitarist Takayuki, bassist Yoshio and drummer Hiroshi. After a while, Chihiro left the band and was replaced by Takashi, who didn’t stay and did vocals only for their first release. Chihiro came back to fill the gap in the band, and this formation became noticed in the music scene. There is still not much known about the band’s first three years, except for an event they had participated in during 1990.

In February 1993, THE PIASS’ first omnibus album appearance Braintrash was released; it also contained a song of MALICE MIZER. Their next few songs ended up being released on many different omnibus albums through Anarchist Records, the label which they signed their first contract with. Two years after signing the contact, they came out with their first album, which almost reached the top ten of the Oricon indies charts.

Everything was going well for the young band until the October 25, 1995, which marked the end of band activities for a brief time. The members Chihiro and Hiroshi died after falling from a twenty meter high bridge during a PV shoot that day. Their deaths became a mystery with many different versions. Some fans like to believe that it was a suicide pact, mostly because of the fact that the two were tied together when they fell. However, it was most likely just an accident because of a silly stunt they had wanted to perform for the PV. Although the band was probably on hiatus at the time in 1996, Anarchist Records still released another two songs by THE PIASS.
