LOKA is an Alternative Hard Rock band based out of Tokyo, Japan but... their music does not sound 'Japanese'.

Combined with raging synthesizer and digital drum beats, the bands music does not stop only at live houses but spreads to the club music scene by which creating a new genre of Electric Dance Metal. With a sound you would hear in a dance club incorporating elements of INDUSTRIAL, HARD ROCK, HEAVY METAL, HOUSE, and ALTERNATIVE music presenting versatility in blending genres.
