Japanese heavy metal group LOVEBITES went down a storm at Download Festival 2019. It was the award winning all-female band’s first time to appear at the Donington Park event, where they managed to pack out the Dogtooth Stage, have vocalist Asami join headliners Halestorm on the Zippo Encore stage, and keep their dazzling white outfits in pristine condition despite the mud.
The powerful performance led to LOVEBITES being featured in the media’s Download Festival highlights, including the event’s own homepage, commenting, “Vocalist Asami commands the crowd to throw and pump their fists at her command. With an impressive range, you’d struggle to find someone who can hit some almost inhuman high notes like she can. Guitarists Midori and Miyako also provide an onslaught of galloping riffs that alone would make the band’s set worth its weight in gold.”
