The musical influences of Last Caress are solidly rooted in 80's metal, while adjusting to newer rock sound. Our largest band influences are from Metallica (music with definitive presence), Foo Fighters (music that you can listen to anytime without having to be in a certain mood), Muse (having fun with their music, making it fun to listen to), and Bullet For My Valentine (bands that can solo).
Lead Guitarist deadlyMETAL's Influences: the above bands, and Steve Vai.
Rhythm Gutarist/Vocalist Baka-San's Influences: All of the above plus Steve Harris, Nobuo Uematsu, and Randy Rhodes.
The aim in parkour is to jump, climb, or run over and around any wall, staircase, or fence blocking your path. Usually, this is done in a city environment. The name comes from the French word 'parkour', which means route, or path. A man who performs parkour is called a traceur and a woman is a traceuse. A young French man, David Belle, developed parkour in the 1990s. His childhood friend, Sabastian Fouchan, is considered to have developed 'free-running', which is a more artistic and expressive version of parkour. David Belle traveled to India and says one way he trained was by watching monkeys jump from tree to tree. But, for Belle and others, parkour is as much a mental exercise as a physical one. The aim is to become so skillful it is almost unnecessary to think about the different actions in running through a path full of barriers. Parkour is not exactly a sport. It was not developed for competition. It is more about learning to control mind and body in difficult situations. There are many basic moves in parkour. One example is the underbar. Other movements are the tic-tack, and the kong vault jump. Skillful traceurs seem to go against the laws of gravity. The popularity has spread largely because of parkour videos and communities on the internet. And, if you search on the web, you may even find parkour groups performing their skills near you.

Last Caress is doing what it always does: has fun, rocks out, and works at keeping things lively and metal. So, we're still stuck in our fix of not having a drum set for our drummer, but you never know whne things change. We'll keep you posted, so check out our pages both here, and on MySpace.
So let's see: one mp3 up, numberous blogs, a decent number of pageviews, and we're gaining attention. I say that's pretty good considering what we are right now.
Things just get better and better. Until next update, go hit a keg!
