Heroes is a cover rock band from the Fiction Wrestling Multiverse (FWM). Formed in 2013, the band has worked independently under Apex Caliber Wrestling (ACW). The band's lineup consists of APEX wrestlers Naruto Uzumaki, Yugi Mutou, Atem, and Takashi Komuro. The band has been on hiatus since their debut cover album to focus on their wrestling careers.
Heroes has been best known to play cover songs from famous rock bands such as Avenged Sevenfold, Three Days Grace, Linkin Park, and Breaking Benjamin. Despite them having rock bands known better in the twenty-first century, they want to look forward into covering classic rock bands such as AC/DC, Aerosmith, Journey, Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and many more. The band also wishes to cover other rock bands from independent labels with great songs along with ones from Japan.
Heroes was founded in the developmental days of Apex Caliber Wrestling (ACW) before it was formed. It only started with all four of them walking through the day like any other day before finding a couple of instruments—two guitars, a bass guitar, and a set of drums—lying around against a dumpster. Turns out those instruments were still in good shape when the boys found them. Naruto decides to take them home to try them out, but the others refused it. Despite that, he takes them anyway; after cleaning and setting all the instruments up (and being forced into playing the instruments), Takashi was the first to test the drums out and he turned out to have a talent at it. Reason for that is that he took a music class in his high school before the Outbreak. Naruto suggested they should be a band for fun.
Around a month or two, Naruto, Takashi, Yugi and Atem took music lessons and they were a success. Soon enough, Heroes started playing a few shows and tour along with the ACW events and even performed at the Reign in Blood pay-per-view during a pre-show with the official theme songs of said pay-per-view, Thousand Foot Krutch's "War of Change" and Avenged Sevenfold's "Hail to the King." With the success they've done so far, Heroes was born and decided to join the music business by having their first album, Don't Blink, the following months. Heroes made an appearance at the 2014 Fiction Wrestling Awards, performing live with Avenged Sevenfold's "The Wicked End."
