Trinity Records has announced the signing of Japan's melodic metal band MYPROOF. The group's latest EP, "Pupil of Astraea", will be re-released in May with three bonus tracks. It will be available worldwide on CD and in digital format through iTunes.

Formed in 1999, MYPROOF's full-length debut, "Reason For My Justice", was released in 2006 via Gods Child Music. The band changed its direction with the "Sky of Destiny" EP in 2007 away from the saturated metalcore genre.

According to a press release, MYPROOF's "phenomenal ability to make mind lingering melodies, great songwriting, unique anime-sounding guitar solos, perfect blending of death metal growls and Japanese style ballad singing, and overall great musicianship will make you think why are they still relatively unknown in the metal world outside of Asia. The answer to this question is simple, it is because they are Asian. The metal community is committing a crime by ignoring talented non-American/European. If they will just open their mind they will discover that there are too lots of talented and phenomenal bands from Asia that deserves our support."
