For those who are interested, I have added it to Discogs, here.

To whet your appetite, here are a few YouTube links:

In the Mirror by LOUDNESS

紅 by X


A guy at a live told me about her. He really loved it, so I had to check it out, haha. Her voice is quite something. I might pick this up
Fan of: BABYMETAL, Aldious, Unlucky Morpheus, Mary's Blood and many more. Try to go to Japan as often as I can for lives.
Yeah, her voice is pretty phenomenal. I just hope all that grit she's adding is done properly or she'll end up blowing her voice out.
The Show-Ya cover is fantastic.

and she's definitely waifu caliber
That's my favorite one too, with the Loudness ones not far behind.

She's a downright fantastic singer, I just don't like the acoustic arrangements. I'm sure some electric band will pick her up at some point though.
If you can't get enough of me giving my opinions without having asked for it, you can read more of it on my Kevy Metal weblog.
She has an album of original songs with an electrified band, and she's the singer for more tracks than any other on the most recent Fate Gear album...
What's the name of the electric band?

Which album is that? I've been having a hard time tracking down her older stuff. She seems to be selling it all at shows, but none of it is available at online retailers.
It's not a named band, more a backing band for her singing?

...and I guess they are EPs...

First Mini-album

2nd Mini-album

There's also an earlier 5-song cover EP, and 3 singles out there somewhere.

PV for the first EP:

I'm not going to pretend that it's as good as the stuff she did on 7 Years After, but she's been at this a minute. That was uploaded in May 2013.
