Crossfaith Make Guitarist Daiki Koide A Full-Time Member, Debut “Zero” Video


Japanese metalcore outfit Crossfaith have rolled out a pair of announcements. First up, the group have confirmed the addition of Daiki Koide as their new guitarist. His permanent role follows a run as a touring member of the band that began back in 2022. He commented of his upgraded position:

“Since July 2022, I have been playing on many stages with Crossfaith as a support member, and I am delighted to announce that I have officially joined Crossfaith as a guitarist. I have known Crossfaith members for more than 10 years now, since I was a part of my previous band, Her Name In Blood.

Back when my own band broke up, I was struggling and seriously thought if I should stop pursuing a music career. However, Crossfaith was the one that reached out to me and brought me back on the stage. We have been making music and performing together on the same stage for a while, and I always felt like I was part of the band, but officially being the member now, I am ready to go all out without holding back. Everything I want to express will be poured into our new music.

I am very excited to be able to express myself through music again. Please keep supporting us.”

Secondly, a new track titled “Zero” has arrived, with a video for it having premiered online below. The band stated of that:

“After approximately one year of hiatus, we’re finally coming back in the game. This song is filled with primitive energy, showcasing our distinctive style to the fullest. It becomes a music full of the desire to tear through the dark abyss with our own hands and be reborn anew.”
