SEIKIMA-II (or Seikimatsu, meaning "holy devouring demon II") is a Japanese heavy metal band that formed in 1982.  It was originally started up by Damian Hamada, but SEIKIMA-II has gone through extensive member changes ever since.  The group disbanded in 1999 and then resumed in 2009.  They are currently on a tour throughout parts of Europe and America.  ¶ I fondly remember this song from the television version of the anime Maze Megaburst Space.  The show itself was an oddball mix of Ranma 1/2 (gender bending), Bakuretsu Hunters (group of wacky warriors) and maybe a drop of Escaflowne (otherworldly mecha).  I could only track down the album version of the song, subtitled "type ß" (beta, not gamma as incorrectly labeled on most fansites).  I don't notice any major differences between this and the version used in the anime's opening credits.  Anyway, "Kokuu" is a glorious heavy metal track with a beautiful guitar breakdown.  Fans of '80s rock will eat this up (as you should).  "MAZE IN YOUR FACE!"
