Aldious guitarist Toki gets married, pregnant in rapid order

Recommended Posts

News here, with a statement from Toki. She will leave the band after a June show, but not for good, apparently. Run it through your favorite translator.

BIG statement from Yoshi. The bottom line seems to be they are hopeful Toki can/will come back after the baby is born.

She might. Nao, drummer from maximum the hormone, had a kid. She took a (very long) pause from band activities but then eventually MTH came back together. The real question is will the rest of Aldious wait for Toki, find a temp guitarist and continue activities, or fill her position?

Oh yeah, she totally might. But motherhood changes people and family life is atractive. This breaks are never short either. Other stuff comes into play. Will the band still be around when she intends to come back if she really takes her time? Will they have a position for her? Will she fit the band's brand as a married mother? I'm inclined to think she ain't coming back.

In case you forgot, they are soldiering on with a temp singer as it is. Re:No has not been replaced and the tour has two singers, Saki from Cyntia and a new girl named Rin, alternating from show to show. So now they are going to continue on with two temps.

 

Interesting tidbit from the blogs is that Toki was a teenager when she joined Aldious and that was 10 years ago. I would have guessed her to be older but they do start young in Japan. Gacharic Spin just hired a 17 year old singer.

 

And Nekkichi, that lame pic is from the Lovebites tour of England. Aldious have yet to set foot outside of Japan much less is that their audience. So you are twice wrong.

Actually nao popped out like 3 kids. MTH's output this decade was severely curtailed because of it. Now they are on Warner after leaving VAP but things are held up because Daisuke had major neck surgery.

 

Also, Nao is a little more tightly connected to MTH since Ryo the guitarist is her younger brother. Aldious is Yoshi's show.

 

Oh, and if Saki (Cyntia) gets the singer gig, I wouldn't be surprised if they bring Yui along now that she has recovered and do Cyntia songs as part of the set.

Sort of off topic but since this a thread is about Toki, I remember reading somewhere that she used to be in a Visual Kei band before Aldious? I find that very interesting (hardly see women in VK) but I cant find any information about her old band. I assume it wasn't a very successful band but I wonder if it really was VK and who were her band mates(mixed gender or all female?).

 

Concerning her marriage and pregnancy, I hope her a wonderful life with her baby and husband. I honestly dont mind if she left Aldious altogether just to focus on taking care of her child.

And on the flip side, Sawa played in Galmet, a melodeath band similar to Arch Enemy, and Yoshi was in an Arch Enemy tribute band.

 

Aruto was in a power metal band before Aldious, I forget the name, but it never went anywhere.
