Maeda e.p. is the first EP by The Ohayogozaimas, released on December 6th, 2017. It's the band's first release with drummer Kojiro Yamazaki, who joined the band officially the previous month, additionally, it is also the first nationally distributed CD by the band.

Production and musical style

The EP's production remains mostly consistent with previous releases. However there are certain key differences, the mix is slightly more well rounded, less treble focused, and the drums do seem to be more pronounced, likely due to the inclusion of Kojiro Yamazaki, the newly introduced drummer.

Musically, This album generally carries a more upbeat, frantic tempo and instrumentation compared to the two previous albums.

Lyrical themes

“Maeda” is about finding your own path in life. “SYSTEMATIC IROMONO HARDCORE” is about the desire to be taken seriously while still being able to joke around and have fun. “Science Fiction Old Man And Young Girl” is about an old man who goes into a coffee shop and tells a young woman about his cynical conspiracy theories. “Safety” is about the limitations and conformity of living a safe life. And “Hypocritical Courtesy” deals with the way people talk in a backhanded way.

Track listing
