Originally published on metropolis.co.jp on June 2011Pop metal act Man With A Mission should really be called Wolves With A Mission—they are notorious for performing in wolf masks. The band celebrates its self-titled major label debut release with a “one man” gig next month at storied Shibuya live house Eggman. Combining the rap metal of Linkin Park with the heavy grunge licks of Soundgarden, MWAM have already conquered North America and are now—apparently awakened after a “sleep of many years”—on the warpath in Japan, with a mission to save the world from global warming and financial crisis.
