Okay……………..a friend of mine ask me, what the heck is 9mm thing that I often used as my user id. She think I’m implying some kind of obscene remarks etc LOL what a pervert woman. Well for those that familiar with bullet and take ballistic course or simply like guns, 9mm is a familiar term. Its not a measurement of length of what ever it is that my friend thought it would be… 9mm refers to a bullet.
9mm is a bullet in the firearms cartridges which have 9millimeters (0.35 in) caliber range where the length refers to the cartridge case length. The most prevalence of these rounds is 9x19mm parabellum. Well….its a bullets cartridge. This cartridge travel and is lethal at longer ranges. The 9 mm cartridge combines a flat trajectory with moderate recoil. This bullets offers energy that allows for adequate expansion and penetration with premium JHP bullets. Used in 9mm pistols and submachine guns.
Ok now, I’m not interested in guns what so ever. I did passed firearm training during my training with RMP in 2008 (damn the it was pure fun) though….I used 9mm in my user id a lot because its a name of my favorite J-Rock band, 9mmParabellum Bullet. Simple as that. Given to the definition of the term, this band offers a very fast,upbeat, loud, piercing noisy music and definitely penetrate tissues of your eardrums and brain. Not a music for those that even consider Nickelback as loud or rock music.
9mm parabellum for me is just a simply amazing band. This awesome band was formed in 2004 from Yokohama. The band consist of
Vocalist and rhythm guitarist – Takuro Sugawara
Guitarist and backing vocalist – Yoshimitsu Taki
Bassist – Kazuhiko Nakamura
Drummer – Chihiro Kamijo

This is a brief introduction of this band. It’s very hard to find an English blog of 9mmparabellum bullet. Its a shame that this band goes unnoticed among rock music lovers. This band live gig is no joke. If not all pop singers can sing live, for a band…not all band have it take to perform a live gig. This band happen to be a band that have it and again I must say, they just simply amazing.
