I like old school visual kei like X Japan and hide. But i hate the visual kei when guys dress and act like girls, sing like girls and are just trying to be as gay as possible.  The people goes "aawwww Kyo is just to cute" and when i see the picture im about to throw up.

Thats my opinion...

I'm not into it, but I saw a photo of Toshiya from Dir en Grey once and thought he was a beautiful girl.  If only he was a girl...

Personally I like Visual Kei myself, big fan of Dir en Grey, although I like there style they are coming off short, Luna Sea is still better.

I'm currently loving 12012, Vidoll, NOIZ, and EllDorado (Yes I know they've disabanded... shhhh)

So what do you think of their new album? I haven't had the chance to listen to it yet because Yesasia is being mean to me.

I'm a fan of SID, Kagrra, Psycho le Cemu, Velvet Eden, KuRt, Phantasmagoria and lots of others.  I have a buch of friends in Berlin right now to see Dir en Grey, lucky bastards.  I'm gonna be seeing +DéspairsRay+ in Dallas in about a week tho, should be fun.

I'm a VK fan and i'm not gay, or a chick, or insecure about it.  If you have a problem with viskei, fine, but don't go insulting others that like it because its not your cup of tea. :)

Actually Visual Kei sucks in music. But the exception is, ironically, the group that created the style, X Japan, the legendary band.


BTW Those who say that it's so bad, what do you hear? Hamasaki Ayumi? BoA? MM? or even worse, Britney Spears? C'mon...

Visual-Kei has really gone downhill, but it had it's glory days with Luna Sea, Dir en Grey, and Malice Mizer. But now, they're all clones of each other, IMO.

Oh yes, SID are awesome. The latest album, Hoshi no Miyako sucks balls, though. :( At least compared to Renai, which was sweet as hell.

The only track that's worth listening to for a while is Alibi.
Title: General Japanese rock thread
Post by: Ayabie on December 25, 2005, 10:42:30 AM
Ajisai is a classic. That track has recruited a whole lot of SID fans.

Yeah, the Ajisai PV is great.

Post by: Ayabie on December 26, 2005, 11:08:22 AM
Gazette have sort of developed their own style lately. They started out as Dir en Grey clones, though.

And yeah, almost every band out there are influenced by X Japan, LUNA SEA and X nowadays.

Nope, I don't think I've seen that preview yet. And Ruki is the name of the vocalist.  :lol:

You mean the part about bands being influenced? Not really. I've read some interviews where members of different bands mention LUNA SEA, hide, Sugizo etc. being the person/band they admire and take after.

Title: General Japanese rock thread
Post by: Stryfe on January 12, 2006, 02:08:38 PM
You want posts? Okay, here goes.

The definition of 'Jrock' tends to vary depending on the user, so I usually forget it and use Japanese Rock instead to describe just that. Some of these might drift a little into other 'genres' but anyway:

I'm into a lot of Japanese indie rock bands, most notably anything involving Shutoku Mukai and his cohorts: Number Girl, Zazen Boys, Bloodthirsty Butchers. My other 'rock' favourites include: Bugy Craxone, The Back Horn, Shiina Ringo & Tokyo Jihen, Go!Go!7188, Acidman and Thee Michelle Gun Elephant.

I'm really not that much into VK, regarding the 'visual' aspect, but I like some bands for their music. Some Laruku songs (Killing Me comes to mind), some Luna Sea (are they even VK? Got a few albums) and I do have the entire Sex Machineguns discography... but I guess they're J-metal, not.. Okay, see how I hate these categories. :D

Dir En Grey is one band that's a semi-disappointment to me musically, mainly because some of the few songs I've heard have show promise but I just can't stand the vocal style. It's the same with a lot of VK bands really: good music, annoying vocal style.

I'm sure there are more VK bands out there that I'd enjoy listening to, but I have yet to really dive in proper.

Just my two general jrock ramble-cents.  8)

Post by: BradVickers on January 13, 2006, 12:21:55 AM
You guys want some suggestions of newer jrock/vk bands (that aren't disbanded)?
In alphabetical order:
D'espairsRay - Great metal. I guess you could consider them gothic metal (not a bad thing). Lots of variation and cool melodies.
12012 - Much like D'espairsRay, but not as good.
Anti-Feminism - They've been around for a while, but they released their first album 2 or 3 years ago. Punk/thrash. Most songs under 2 minutes.
Bang-Doll - Good old school metal. They've also been around for a while, but few have heard of them.
CHUCKY - If you mix speed metal and hair metal you get CHUCKY. Fun party metal songs mixed with really heavy stuff.
Cloud Nine - Another straightforward metal band. Mix a little nu metal in there, but not enough to make it bad.
D - They have a wide variety of songs. Everything from ballads to heavy stuff. Most VK fans should like thse guys
Danger Gang - One of the few all female VK bands out there. Heavy songs mixed with a little bit of pop. Interesting stuff.
Galneryus - Awesome. Very much like European power metal. Their guitarist, Syu, is amazing. He's the main reason to listen. If you like Children of Bodom, but cant stand the vocals, then Galneryus is for you.
Gazette - If you like Dir en grey, then you'll probably like Gazette. They’re a little hit or miss, but they have a lot of good songs.
Gilgamesh - Just found these guys a little while ago. Much like D'espairsRay, but with a little nu metal flavor. Once again, not enough to ruin it.
Kagerou - Used to be a really cool band. Check out their early singles, not the full albums.
Kagrra - Really cool. Like a mix of traditional Japanese music and modern rock.
Phantasmagoria - More gothic metal. They're pretty new, so they still need some time to grow. High expectations, but they haven’t been met yet.
Scar. - One of my new favorites. Really heavy, but the singer could use some work. Other than that, they're great.

Someone mentioned HISKAREA a few posts back. They, along with Mar'derayla, were two bands I was keeping an eye on because I thought they had a lot of potential. Unfortunately, Kisaki decided to break up these bands to take members for his band Phantasmagoria. HISKAREA and Mar'derayla were both better than Phantasmagoria. What a shame.

Can't forget about Evil Morning! God I love the guy that puts these songs together. Takes Hello Project songs, takes out all the background music and replaces it with metal, but keeps the original vocals. What more could you ask for?
Title: General Japanese rock thread
Post by: Ayabie on January 13, 2006, 05:59:53 PM
Oh wow, more replies than I expected.  :lol:  Thanks for the HISKAREA samples, Ame, I'll check them out.

Ah, DéspairsRay are awesome. [coll:set] is definitely one of my favorite releases of '05. I pretty much like every band you listed there, except for the ones I've never heard of - Anti-Feminism, Bang-Doll, CHUCKY, Cloud Nine.

One of my favorites of the "newer" bands are GLAMOROUS HONEY. I love their two releases so far.

You can get some of the Evil Morning stuff from the official site here: http://evilmorning.nsf.tc/remix/remix.html if there's any you want, but they don't have available for download, just tell me and I can send them to you.

Ayabie
[Coll:set] was really good. Could have done without those remixes, though. It's a rare occurrence that a vk band, who mostly puts out singles and mini's, has a full album that kicks ass (look at Kagerou). I saw them when they played in San Francisco. Couldn't move my neck for a week. Fun times.

I'd really suggest that you check out CHUCKY if you like the other bands I've listed. Love those guys; wish they would put out more material, though. Seems like they're on a hiatus.

Haven't heard of GLAMOROUS HONEY. Have to check them out.

Just so you know, Anti-Feminism isn't for everyone.

Haha, that was pretty interesting. Sucks that I couldn't pick up more than about 20% of what they were singing.  :lol: It was expected though, since you labeled them as 'punk/thrash'.

It was a nice listen, but they're nothing special in my opinion.

I agree. It's sad that they only made two albums.

I think the first album's better, it's so packed with raw emotion - especially on the vocals, Chisako is damn impressive. The second one had a cleaner sound and faster pacing which I didn't like as much, but it's still a really good album.

That reminds me I just got some live of theirs I haven't listened to yet...
Title: General Japanese rock thread
Post by: Ayabie on January 25, 2006, 08:49:53 PM
Same here, both of their albums are masterpieces, but Chuu no Fuchi is straight-up great.

Whoa, lives? The only visual media I've got by them is the PV for Aoijiro Tsuki. :o Oh by the way, I just noticed you have a last.fm. I went ahead and added you. :lol:

If you can BT, search jpopsuki tracker for 'fra-foa', there's still a bunch of stuff seeded. I can maybe upload some as well at some point.

Trying to save the jrock thread from the second page.

Here are videos I made playing some stuff on guitar. All sloppy, but what the hell.

X - Week End solo (single version). Camera was dying, so I could only record it once, so there are some mess-ups.
 Video Link (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v434/BradVickers2/?action=view¤t=weekendMPG.flv)

hide – Honey Blade solo
 Video Link (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v434/BradVickers2/?action=view¤t=hbladeMPG.flv)

Nanase Aikawa – Koigokoro (intro riff)
 Video Link (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v434/BradVickers2/?action=view¤t=koigokoroMPG.flv)

Anyone else willing to put up some videos? Whether you're playing guitar, bass, drums, piano, whatever.

Nice fingering. What is that effect you're using though, i've never heard overdrive like that o_O
Title: General Japanese rock thread
Post by: BradVickers on June 24, 2006, 10:38:44 PM
Heh, it's a combination of things. I had the volume down as low as it could go, while still being able to hear it (these were all recorded around 4am on different days). The overdrive on the Marshall was on and so was the distortion on my effects pedal.

Oh a completely different subject. Anyone going to see Yoshiki in Baltimore in August? My friends and I are probably gonna go. Just wish they would announce the specific date that he's gonna be there. I'm not a big anime fan, so I don't really want to go to the whole convention

Haha, I forgot that I said I'd record this for you guys. Well, better late than never.
Reila (recorded 10 minutes ago). Sorry about my leg being in the way, didn't think it would interfere in the video. Also recorded it in low quality. I'll try to do everything in good quality from now on, because it looks like shit.

handroid is on his "Direct Chord" album.
it's available on YouTube, here's one of the versions (album version is longer). I got this song for guitar pro: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAB_8-WxpkA&search=daita

and the DVD that comes with Euphony is quite sweet when you only use the cam on his hands so you can see how the songs are played :)

and I like Anchang better then Panther ^^*

There we go. I can live with that.

BTW. Anyone know where I can get the new issue(Vol. 21) of Rockin'f(ロッキンf) magazine that features Taiji Sawada on the cover. Looks like the DVD that comes with it has some live stuff of him playing. I'd like to check that out.

Saving the Jrock thread again! It's almost on the third page!
Got a cool reason this time. Thought I'd share the one of the coolest instrumental albums I've heard in a long time.
It's "Amenity Gain" the second solo album by Ruiza of the band D.
I took a chance with it because I like Ruiza's work in D and I hoped that it would be just as awesome. Thankfully, it met (and surpassed) all of my expectations. I even like it more than Panthers "Sexy Finger" albums and I love Panther.
Well, enjoy guys:

Thought I should mention my favorite jrockers:

An Cafe: Love the music and Every. Flippin. Thing. About them.

Lolita 23q: The band members are adorable, and the drummer kicks ass. Their music are awesome.

Alice Nine: I can never get enough of this band. Some say the vocalist's voice can get irritating after awhile, but I personally think he can saang (not sing. Saaang).  

D: Don't even get me started...

G.O.Z VII: This band is so flippin unique. Get this: 7 members, in which 2 are vocalists. Their music are simply amazing with catchy chorus and unforgetable beat.

Laruku: I highly doubt an explaination is necessay.

Poitrine: The use of the keyboard and their melody sets the mood into a medival period. Love love loooove this band.

Baiser: Disbanded because a member passed away. However, this band will always have a place in my heart. Their songs are touching and amazing.

Currently addicted to: Nega - Rainfalls

I beg to differ!!  Some of that theatric stuff goes really well into their music; and where are you going to find 'Cross-dresser' that looked as cool as alot of them?!?!

X weren't visual kei, just visual. They were more glam than anything.
Title: General Japanese rock thread
Post by: donkeykong83 on December 29, 2006, 08:17:35 AM
X Japan qualifies as visual kei. They started the trend anyway. Glam would be something like Glay or L'arc~en~ciel when they first started out.
Visual kei and glam sounds almost the same to me. Except when you mention glam, its more like rockers with light make-up while visual kei is like...rockers dressing as drag queens and...stuff. As the years passed vk bands has taken a more modern look though.

Correct me if I'm wrong. o_o
Title: General Japanese rock thread
Post by: BradVickers on December 29, 2006, 06:23:01 PM
Sorry, by glam I meant 80's glam/hair metal, which I wouldn't label L'arc-en-ciel or glay as. Compare X with a band like Due le Quartz and they look noting alike. Now, compare X with a mix of "Shout at the Devil"/ "Theatre of Pain" era Mötley Crüe and you have a match. With the exception of hide, they generally just wore leather, like any other 80's band.
Plus, X didn't start anything. There were plenty of Japanese bands that were doing the same thing before and during X's early years. 44 Magnum, Loudness, Dead End and Anthem, just to name a few. X just brought it to the mainstream.
I don't want to sound anti-X, or anything like that. They're actually my favorite band, but it always gets on my nerves when people call them visual kei. Which is funny because I'm a visual kei fan. Go figure.

SMG are on a break, if I'm not mistaken. Don't worry, though. What is this, the third time they've broken up? They'll get back together.
Anchang's been in Tennessee recording a solo album.
Joe, Panther and Kenjilaw are now in a band called CYCLE, but I haven't heard anything about any releases yet.
Oh, and I wouldn't call them indie... they're on Toshiba-EMI...

Anyways, went and bought "Spit & Yell" yesterday (downloaded it earlier), and just when I thought RIZE was the coolest band around, that bonus DVD just fuckin' nailed it.
Gotta be one of the strangest 34mins in music video history. It has it all...Live action, anime, little fluffy animals, violence, explosions and senseless nudity.....Perfect!!

ahh, THE GREAT ROMATIC, i got it on release :P (im a fan haha)..

it's cool, with a few kickass songs (This Love Sucks),, a great continuation to their EP's.. (Vol.1 is just too good).. overall, more polished (of course)..

still many claim that Detroit7 is a "Live-Only Band", who are only better during live performances and such... which i cannot really say, because i havent seen them live... :(

Detroit 7 seem pretty cool from the little I know of them.

I listened to some RIZE a few months back and watched a live vid of them, they have some good songs, but I don't really like their overall sound and style of music. That DVD sounds interesting though.

Curses! Well, hopefully the magazine has some images that I can scan. Whatever's on the DVD, I'll throw up here when I get it. I'll just hope for the best!
About their other album. I've been looking for it, but it seems like just a demo that was distributed to indie shops, but I haven't been able to find it anywhere.
Also, someone asked how Eita would compare to male shredders... Don't get me wrong, she's very good, but players like Marty Friedman, Steve Vai, Paul Gilbert, so on and so on blow her out of the water. BUT! If I had to choose who to see play live, it would be Eita :)

There were two vocalist and it sounded like there was four or more since they switch to different voices during some parts. The song was like...punkish and later has some rapping,growling, high pitch yelling parts and...it switches pace one in a while sounding really heavy and stuff and the chorus was catchy as hell and all. Thats like a lot of random stuffs in one song.

Title: General Japanese rock thread
Post by: boykun on January 27, 2007, 10:27:32 AM
I like them. I think they're classified as trash, but of course they mix in other stuff like catchy poppy hooks in the chorus and such. They have 4 members,

Daisuke (vocal, screaming and shrieking and stuff)
Ryou (vocal, rap, guitar)
Nao (drums, vocal, chorus)
Ue-chan (bass)

The vocals is basically split among 3 members. The growling and high pitched screaming is by the same guy, lol. I think Nao is the most important member of the band. :lol: The catchy pop parts of the songs are credited pretty much to her backing vocals. She's the voice at their concerts; and is the one who works the crowd. Anyway, they're a fun band. Check out this interview: http://www.keikaku.net/features/58

Hidekazu is leaving Zazen Boys :( http://www.bounce.com/news/daily.php/9756.
He'll be joining Nakamura Tetsuya (LOSALIOS) for a new project.

Don't worry, he's still in Straightener though. Now I'm sad, I like him in Zazen Boys. But I have faith in Mukai. Inazawa left and he was replaced by Matsushita. Not as great a drummer, but he is solid and very consistent. Fits in well considering the choppy rhythm they tend to play. Anyway I hope Mukai finds a good replacement.

This maximum hormone video is pretty fucking bad ass.

[yt]pa31gsivbWM[/yt]


I dled the song somewhere... though I have no idea where as I just found it in my hard drive. It had no tags or a name but I searched the filename and it was on some japanese uploader with the name of the song and band as a comment.

I think I realized why I didn't like alot of their songs. Most of their songs sound like they have no idea what they want to sound like and just tried to mix everything in there. They also mix nu-metal in there which I freakin hate... But this song sounds more like an actual song than 5, I like it.

Edit: Seems to be the ending of the Death Note Anime or something. That would explain the PV

It's a cute little guitar. I like that musicians friend says it has one of the thinnest necks out there. Perfect for a girl or someone with small hands. I remember playing one of those ESP LTD EC-1000's and I hated the neck. Too thick.

Bought tickets tonight to see RIZE (http://www.triberize.net/) live in Kobe. :D

Kobe is kinda far (about 90mins), but it's on a public holiday, so it's all good. The wife and I will spend the whole day fuckin' around in Kobe, hit the show, then bail home. :pimp:

AND, their 5th album comes out tomorrow.. Yay, I need to spend more cash.

I'm currently into post-rock bands like toe and NATSUMEN. But I always listen to the indie rock and punk stuff. I just listened to one of ASPARAGUS' albums the other day. Real good stuff. I'm not into visual kei stuff either, but I do listen to some bands like Sid, Merry, MUCC, and some others. Sid's Renai album was really good, but the follow up I found disappointing.

Laputa is a good band..
I'm listening to them right now.. it has been a long time since the last time I listened to them..  Songs like "Eve", "Silent On-looker", "Meet Again" etc etc... Very nice songs... There's a PV where they are wearing some "red robes" and they're playing in a desert place like.. I guess the name is "Ticker", is a very good pv... mmm...

Here's the pv --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5N4rwacw-E

here's another Eita vid for you guys. It's one of the lessons from the October issue, the ones on youtube.
http://www.sendspace.com/file/otjpn0
Now, I've got a little problem. As with the last video, the sound isn't the best. I figured it was just the quality that was on the DVD because that's what it sounded like when I played it on my computer. BUT! I popped both the Sept and Oct DVD's into my normal DVD player the other day and they sounded perfect.
I'm using IMtoo dvd ripper platinum 4 and it's usually pretty good at ripping both the audio and video...
Any suggestions?

maybe you can try using gordian knot to encode? It's not the easiest thing to use but it's not too hard to figure out. ebc has a guide for it in akiba.

I like old school visual kei like X Japan and hide. But i hate the visual kei when guys dress and act like girls, sing like girls and are just trying to be as gay as possible.  The people goes "aawwww Kyo is just to cute" and when i see the picture im about to throw up.

Thats my opinion...
Same here. And i don't like todays style of visual kei. To me all their singing seem the same to me, which is kind of sad :(. There's times when i really like the instrumentals, but when it gets to the vocals...*shakes head*

I used to like D when they first started out. The dude sounded exactly like Hyde back then. Their first two mini albums were great but most of the stuffs after that were blah. And I feel like slitting that guys throat when he does this annoying high pitch voice. It seems like most of the vk bands I like earlier has gotten worse nowadays. Gazette, Merry, Nightmare, Kagerou, Kagrra and Ayabie are a few that I can think of. DIE VK DIE!

Thoughts gogogo!


Good, solid album at first listen, especially the first half. There's a good number of dance-able tracks. The Yume Shindan remix is weird, maybe even throws off the flow of the whole album. But solid album nevertheless. The album version Hane no Hikari isn't as great because there's no Kayo! lol. Mexico Pub is probably the standout track. Definitely my favorite.

The bands are:
Alice Nine
Vidoll
Duel Jewel

I like some Merry, Girugamesh, and Mucc's recent stuff. Not really bands I'd prefer to see, but I've liked at least one song from most of those bands and looks interesting enough to check out.

I'll consider it if I don't remember how over-rated I think viskei is >_>

So, I am back from the Jikuu Kaizoku (space-time pirate) SEVEN SEAS gig in a Live Club in Shinjuku.
I hate myself for not getting there earlier, as it was already quite full and I was stuck in the back :-(
Anyway, it started with Gachinikofu (drums) shooting with a (toy)gun at the audience followed by (like their first CD) some story telling including an introduction of each space-time pirate. Every band member had a nice entrance with a sound effect (haha sorry don't know how to describe it better). But Eita had a cute magic one wohooo.
Every member seemed quite true to their role. Prince-YO was the cool bishie one (with mostly females in standing on his side) handing out roses, Tatsuhowa Sho-Gun was the funny guy providing the most laughs from the audience, Eita being of course the cute one (with a mostly male audience in front of her) throwing out plushies and other cute things and Marshal K being the best stereotype warship captain/general doing salutes and stuff. Gachinikofu was stuck in the dark area of the stage behind his drums only saying one word before/after the encore. But according to the webpage he's a russian spy from the year 2030 - maybe that fits :-)
The show itself had some interaction with the crowd, but with only about 100 people you can't get much out of the crowd even if you're the best entertainer. There was one song where the crowd was supposed to follow the flag waving of the Marshal but only very few of the audience even had the flags which we were supposed to buy/get before show started (if only I had known).
Every once in a while during the gig sho-gun and the Marshal hit each other like a manzai comedy duo. Not quite sure about them, but apparently they are the funny two together.
Eita played just like in the clips and on the CDs very good and fast and was quite active during it - Either by head banging or jumping around. The people who had a better view than me probably enjoyed her show a lot :-) She was even singing quite an amount of background vocals into her microphone which almost can't be heard.
Here are my two 'best' pictures I was able to make. I wasn't sure if I could use my camera, but a few songs before the end someone took a pic with his cellphone so I took the camera out and tried - and failed.
(http://img408.imageshack.us/img408/8362/jkss1mo7.th.jpg) (http://img408.imageshack.us/my.php?image=jkss1mo7.jpg) (http://img408.imageshack.us/img408/1061/jkss2hb8.th.jpg) (http://img408.imageshack.us/my.php?image=jkss2hb8.jpg)
Eita was mostly moving (as you can see in the pics) or behind heads (since when is everyone so big in Japan??) or the light wasn't enough for a pic.
I like how in the first pic it looks like Marshal says 'Hey drop that camera!' :-) He did that a lot to the audience were usually the pointed at person replied with the same hand sign.

Here are 4 very short movie clips I took with the camera (including crappy quality video AND audio) joined to one single XVID file which looks imho better than the pictures I took:
Jikuu Kaizoku Seven Seas - Small Clips Live in Shinjuku (2007-04-30).avi (8.42 MB)
http://www.mediafire.com/?ejn4iny22mm

And here is what maybe everyone was waiting/hoping for. The new (mini) album called Confusion. 9 Tracks, 27 minutes, 128kbit Ogg Vorbis, no story talking (but a short rapping part in one track which wasn't in the live gig):
Jikuu Kaizoku SEVEN SEAS - Confusion.zip (26.73 MB)
http://www.mediafire.com/?75mnz3mgcmn

That was probably my only chance seing them live as the only other announced show of them in Tokyo where I am still here is some kind of festival where they are only listed as opening act and not under the main performing artists... So I am not sure if I even want to attend that... Anyone knows these acts Imitation PoPs 宇宙戦隊NOIZ/人格ラヂオ/Phantasmagoria/R*A*P and would recommend me to go there (the name R*A*P scares me the most)?

PS: Thanks for reading :-) Didn't think I could write so much even without much complaining about my place in the room and how much I'd liked a fixed numbered seat like an H!P concert :-)

Awesome, man. Thanks for the report, pics, vids, and the new album!! Sounds like it was a lot of fun. Funny that all the girls went to Prince Yo and all the guys went to Eita.
about that other concert, I've heard a few tracks by Imitation PoPs noiz and they're not bad. You should see them just for the fat drummer. Phantasmagoria has a few good songs. They're breaking up soon, so they'll probably be putting on a good show. Never heard of the rap guys.

Here's the PV for "The Wind of Tomorrow" by Jikuu Kaizoku SEVEN SEAS. Funny as hell.
Anyone want to rip it from the site? pretty please?

Gotta bump this.

So, the new 9mm ep came out. What does everyone think of it? Seven tracks, but only two actual new songs. The rest are re-recordings of older songs. The lack of new material is pretty disappointing, but the two new songs are pretty kickass. The title track is especially good. I really like it.

Here's the PV

Btw, I second the Seven Seas PV. It's quite random and funny. Someone rip plz.

They're one of my favorite indies bands right now, but I haven't heard it yet... Where can I dl?


wait... they signed with capitol records... so they're not exactly indie... still managed by zankyo so I guess they just have a bigger budget now XD

Torrent right here (http://mullemeck.serveftp.org/jps_beta/?page=details&id=33769)

lol, bigger budget probably contributed to the cool effects in the PV. I remember Cool Joke also had that rock out on top of rock formations while something disastrous is happening in the background theme. Though they had the cheesy exploding volcanoes.

anyhoo... great stuff, the rerecordings are nice too. my fave track would be Heat-Island ;)

For all the J-indies fans out there, toddle and swarm's arm are releasing new albums June 8th

Only thing I can say is, FINALLY!!!!

you can check some previews out on their myspaces.

I'm not really as big of a fan of swarm's arm, but ai kobayashi is cute >_>

Cool. I find toddle the least impressive of the NG kids and the debut was still pretty good.

I'm sure Tabuchi can do better, especially if she fixes the main problem - the vocals.
Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread

Going by the samples on their myspace, I think the new album will be better than the last. "Sack Dress" sounds great.

Thats what I thought when I first heard it. Maybe its because of that similar flute-sounding instrument used at the beginning of the song. Didn't cared too much about the song itself and the PV was kinda confusing. At first you see him standing in the middle of a battle and no one seems to notice him. Then he starts singing while those warriors are busy stabbing each other. After that he joins in the fun but gets stabbed in the stomach instead and dies. But at the end of the scene he still looked pretty much alive and standin tall. Yeah....thats Gackt to you. Full of mystery and shit.

Anyone know what's up with Sloth Love Chunks?

Specifically, what's up with Kayo? She's not included in the band member pics of the new site (http://www.slothlovechunks.com/), and I couldn't find any explanation either.

I tried googling and web-translating a little but I couldn't get any clear answers.

Anyone?

I couldn't find anymore information other than that she left the band. Their 2ch thread just started on the 3rd thread so I can't see the 2nd thread where there might be more info. :/

Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: Stryfe on June 15, 2007, 12:56:58 PM
Okay let's write a little something else other than cuss words.

Fucking hell. SLC (wiki (http://wiki.dakodako.net/Sloth_Love_Chunks)) was the best thing to come out of the Number Girl breakup and interestingly enough it was Nakao's, the dude claimed to be responsible of the mess, band.

One of my favourite Japanese rock bands evar, and they only put out one album - a masterpiece of creative and diverse songwriting. Original, fun and distinctive rock songs. That made me wonder how much real effect Nakao had on Mukai's songwriting when NG was still around. I had such high hopes for the group.

Well I'm assuming they're gonna continue because there's a new site and everything, so talks like this could be premature, BUT... Kayo was a big fucking part of the awesomeness. She had a unique, flexible, instantly recognizable voice. She's gonna be hard to replace.

In a recent live they played a new song called nakano kill you :lol: Pierre says it has a more metal sound.

Can anyone please recommend a good J-Rock forum or torrent site? I want to find some new J-Rock bands to listen to but I don't know where to get information on them and I'm not going to go to a website like yesasia and buy a CD from a band that I haven't heard any of their songs. The only bands I know about are the more famous ones like Dir en grey, Gazette, D'espairs Ray, 12012, and Girugamesh.
Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: StreakInTheSky on June 28, 2007, 04:43:21 AM
If you want info, just google the band. google.co.jp would probably work better for japanese bands. Some bands have sample music/videos in their sites. I also find youtube a great way to check out a band. Search in english, and japanese. If you like vk, there's lots of sites dedicated to it. If you want some underground bands, audioleaf is a great japanese site.

for english info, just look in any j-music related forum. wikipedia or wiki.theppn has info on lots of japanese artists. Want to know some lesser known mostly non-vk bands, check out IiNihon(link in a sticky in this forum). Though it's not updated regularly >_>

Jpopsuki is the best tracker there is for Japanese music. If they don't have it, search on some P2P program. If that doesn't work, just ask around. I recommend soulseek as a good p2p where you can search for music, and ask people in a chatroom.

J-rock is such a broad catagory that I can't really give you any details. If you really want to find different bands to listen to, you can't really just look in a couple of places.

The best resource though, is actual people, so if someone mentions a band you'd be interested in, but can't find any info yourself, ask about it.

Going by the videos, the S.K.I.N. show at AX seemed to go well. Gackt was pretty enthusiastic. It said in the newsletter they used Tsuchiya Anna's bassist on support, but I think only on rehearsal. The GacktJob bassist was playing in the videos. It also said everyone only cared about Gackt. There were only a few who actually knew about the band. lol. The Gackt/Yoshiki piano duet was pretty cool.

Road of Major to disband

Rock band Road of Major revealed on Monday that they plan to break up. According to the announcement, the four members have been working together despite their differing tastes, and now they want to return to their original paths as individuals. However, they suggested that there is a possibility of the band reuniting in the future.

The popular band formed in 2002 as part of a talent search on TV Tokyo's audition show, "Hamaraja."

Oh man..screw that. I really like them. They have some catchy tunes and all. And they haven't even been major that long yet.

Was in the mood for some power metal and found some new Jikuu Kaizoku SEVEN SEAS vids

PV for The Wind of Tomorrow off of their recent album Confusion
[youtube=425,350]0BJKpMxtZE8[/youtube]

More of a pop metal song than power metal, but the pv was was pretty funny :lol:

and a demo of Prince Yo and Eita playing SHE, also off the same album
[youtube=425,350]azJRHNiWgNk[/youtube]

Eita looks so cute with her tiara :lol: also noticed she has a pink marshall half stack XD Seriously the cutest metal guitarist in existence.

The vocals seems to be getting worse... but that's sorta typical of Japanese metal bands, it really isn't the easiest thing on the throat to be singing like that for some years :lol:


Speaking of hot girl guitarists, this girl HOT!!

Post by: BradVickers on July 16, 2007, 01:04:48 PM
haha, I always hear people talking about mucc like the second coming of christ, but I've never been able to get into them.
have fun at gn'r, though (got one of my gn'r shirts on right now). Saw them back in 2002 on the chinese democracy (HAH!) tour. Hope axl has improved since then. Seemed like there were two long instrumental breaks in every song so that he could run backstage to get oxygen. Too bad you don't get to see Buckethead. He was the best part of that show. He break danced, played with nunchucks, played a solo that would tear your face off, and then handed toys out to the audience! love that goofy fuck.

lol mucc opening to gn'r

I like mucc's less heavy songs. Their Houyoku album is really the only one worth listening to.

I'd say go hang out at the merch tables while you wait, since they sometimes have some cute chicks XD But you're probably going with the wife. :lol:

She's actually not going to the gig, so it's just me and a fellow Aussie mate (and a few thousand others).. It's good, cause usually I'm all protective and shit, but without her there, we are going to go mental and mosh our way to the front (well, that's the plan)..
She is going to come out for our all night drinking binge at RockRock (http://www.rockrock.co.jp/) after though.. It was either she come out, or I go home, so she's coming out... But that's cool, cause we are good drinking buds.. (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v348/Guchi_Jnr/smilies/drunk.gif)

They hint that Guns N' Roses will turn up, but you never know.. Went there for the Crüe after party, and while the band didn't turn up, all the stage performers from the show were there, so I was pissing on with Mighty Mike (http://www.mightymike.tv/Motleycrew.htm).. And Buckcherry (http://www.buckcherry.com/) (the Crüe's opening act) were also there..

Anyways, that's enough with Western bands..

Here's an 8min DVD that was given out free after the RIZE gig I saw a few months back..

[youtube=425,350]4IBwZvUqqi8[/youtube]

Hard driving instrumental rock power!! Yutaka Aoki from VOLA on guitar and Fujifabric's support drummer Hiroshi Kido, who is also in JUDE with Asai Kenichi, on za drums. Sounds a lot like Losalios kinda, but they're inactive anyway, so this makes up for it. They just released an album last week.

Interesting band and great sound. Still think they need a vocalist though. It gets kinda boring and repetitive just as an instrumental. At least put something in there for a melody.

The new songs are definitely heavier and seem to move more towards their hardcore leanings. Also sounds like TK and 345 are sharing lines more.

Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: Guchi_Jnr on July 22, 2007, 04:50:50 AM
^ Saw them last night, and during their second song, I went outside for more beer and smokes, and didn't go back into the venue til after they finished their set, which a lot of others also did.. Just didn't like their style of music at all, and thought they were a bad choice as an opening act for Gn'R..

As for that sitting down bit and not letting MUCC fans to the front, well I didn't see any of that last night (probably because I didn't stay), but can understand people doing that... If you want to see the opening act, you can just spend a few thousand yen and watch them in a small live house.. These tickets on the other hand were 12,000yen, and a lot of people lined up for hours to get good ticket numbers (or are fanclub members), and to give up your good spot at the front, so people can watch a regular band that they can see anytime, is just stupid.. 
Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: StreakInTheSky on July 23, 2007, 02:24:09 AM
oh damn, that's bullshit. I absolutely hate it when people boo the performers on stage. You don't have to like it, but give a little respect. It's even worse when they start throwing shit and mess with the equipment. Gotta hand it to MUCC though for staying on stage and playing their set and more to compensate for gn'r for being late.

The people up front didn't have to leave their seats but they also didn't have to be such assholes.

Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: Guchi_Jnr on July 23, 2007, 04:25:38 AM
Totally agree that booing and throwing stuff is bullshit, but I didn't see any of that when I was there. And yeah, while I only stayed for 2 songs, my buddy stayed for the whole set and didn't say anything like that happened at our gig..

Personally, I think this whole fanboy/girl rant is bullshit.. Out of the 5 shows, only 1 had seating (Nagoya) and the rest were "all standing". They wrote about fans "interfering with the equipment", but how, that gear is on the stage..

I just watched the pv and they're not bad. I'll wait until I hear a few more songs before I make any decisions. Chisato? Sugizo? Nice, I've always liked them. Hopefully this little all-star band sticks together.

I thought it was an all-star band when I dled the single. but from the site, it looks like it's Yasu's solo project. The PV has completely different people in it(though also people from other bands).The single was pretty cool, but the PV was actually pretty awesome lol

Yo..Luna Sea fans might wanna check out this piece of news...

Quote from: http://www.tokyograph.com/news/id-1551
LUNA SEA begins mystery countdown

Rock band LUNA SEA seems to have a surprise in store for fans. The group's official site has been updated with an image reading "God Blessed You." Clicking on the image leads to another site (http://www.lunaseagodblessedyou.net/), which displays a moon and a number, which has been counting down daily. The countdown ends on August 28, the date of the upcoming lunar eclipse.

No one knows yet what the day will bring for LUNA SEA fans, though some are speculating about the possibility of the band reuniting.

A reunion? Wahey!

Been a good year for reunions; X Japan, Luna Sea, Oblivion Dust, Siam Shade... Hope there are more to come.

Sweet, man. Saw it listed at Keikaku.net some time ago. Oh how I've been waiting for this. I've loved all their releases, and their first album is one of my all-time faves.

This new preview track sounds really intense... Man, I have such high expectations! xD

They also put out a live DVD last month... I gotta get my hands on that as well.

SWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY~~~~

After listening through it once, I'm really liking "Nakano Kill You" and "I not crazy am your are" the most, but every song was good. The album is actually a lot more different than I expected it to be. I wasn't expecting am3:45 to be so post-rock which was a nice touch. And :lol: @ the ballad, though they pulled it off pretty nicely. You can actually tell TK can sing pretty damn good. And those notes he held in the end, fucking insane.

I don't know if it's my ears, headphones, the rip, or the production, but the drums and bass really seemed to be a little overpowering at times and TK's guitar was hidden behind a little to many effects for my tastes. It didn't really get me like #4 and Feeling your UFO did but it's still a really great album overall. It amazes me that there are only 3 of them. I'm probably gonna be listening to this a whole bunch of times for the next few days.
Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: Ayabie on August 22, 2007, 08:07:51 AM
After listening through the album, the first thought that hit me was "where is the metal?". :lol:

My favorite track has to be 'i not crazy am you are', it's brilliant. 345's solo track is also pretty sweet. The only disappointment, if even considered one, is the remake of Akai Yuuwaku.
Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: StreakInTheSky on August 22, 2007, 08:29:14 AM
well the metal was pretty much all in the drumming. the most metal part of the album was the first few seconds of "nakano kill you" I mentioned earlier.
Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: Stryfe on August 22, 2007, 08:29:29 AM
^ Let's start the 'we want ling remake' internet petition!  :w00t:

Ahh well couple listens down, and can't really pinpoint my fave tracks yet. Well, I'm just letting it run in the background while coding at work anyway. xD There are moments of brilliance scattered throughout the album, TK has some fucking amazing guitar trickery thrown around everywhere.

I wasn't sure what to expect after the previews, which I didn't think were that impressive. But this album fucking is.

They did it again. This is gonna spin for a long time.

And yeah the "metal" is pretty much all in nakano kill you's beginning, haha. xD

I was always sorta wondering how Rin Toshite was so popular as they only have a few releases on their own label. And they also seemed to have quite a bit of fans who are more into v-kei and stuff. While searching for some info on the Disco Flight PV I found out that they are under the same production company as L'Arc~en-ciel, Maverick DC group(which is the production company of Danger Crue Records), along with bands like Sid and Mucc, which are affiliates of Avex. So promotion of the band seems to go beyond just word of mouth of fans.

Just found that interesting.

Speaking of Disco Flight, I could play a bit of it on guitar :D

Just a note to anyone trying to play their songs on guitar, pretty much all their songs are tuned half a step down if you haven't already figured that out.

Edit: Someone upped the PV on youtube

Just found this out right now but Firefox has a little rock fes in Japan. :lol:

it's later at 15:00 Japan time and you can watch the live feed streaming from the site
If you're actually in the Shibuya area at that time, tickets are sold out but the site says you can buy tickets at the door. If you like Japanese indie-punk bands I recommend it. There's also a free cafe show at the same venue but I don't know any of the performers, looks like a more classy show though.

They got some great bands on there.


edit: The stream should be starting soon.. and the time table is up too. I wanna see the Midori set, but going by the time table, they'll be on the stream at 3am. -_-' I hope someone can record this.

Qomo was good. They played a new song, sounded pretty cool. Tsushimamire is on now. There are a lot of fans in the chat, talking in English, which is surprising.

Anyone getting the Rock In Japan on Jpopsuki? Only two days are up, but anyways... Zazen Boys was pretty exciting. I just find it funny when they start doing that ridiculous improv shit, especially on Cold Beat. I love the rhythm section. The new bassist Yoshida is awesome. He's pretty fast and tends to pull off more technical stuff than Hinata. The rearranged Hantoumei Shoujo Kankei is kinda boring, though. Not as energetic.

Oh, and Cornelius was great with that crazy visual/light show.

Post by: Ayabie on October 21, 2007, 09:20:22 AM
I like it a lot better than the first one. It's more dynamic.

Oh, and I just watched the new BaseBallBear PV. The last few singles didn't leave much of an impression, but I must say I really like this one. More Shiori for the masses. :lol:
Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: StreakInTheSky on October 22, 2007, 11:12:10 PM
Didn't really get into Base Ball Bear's latest singles since Dakeshimetai. The PV was pretty cool.

I like Shiori and think she's totally cute(probably my favorite rock band member looks/style wise), but the girl isn't the greatest live singer and at times can't even handle the chorus. Hope she does well with her little verse though.

Haven't gotten the ogre you asshole album yet, is it on any trackers/direct-dl sites? Or do I need to use a p2p?
Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread

Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: boykun on October 23, 2007, 06:06:26 AM
I too am really liking aishiteru. Moar Shiori is always good. I agree though, she sounds really winded on lives, especially on songs with those airy vocals. Doesn't quite hold it as well as Miki. The solo verse is nice, I'm glad it's there. :lol:
I like how each of them has a certain style of clothing on every PV.

It seems I can't stop listening to detroit7. I finally got over Nabana's voice, now it's awesome garage and rock 'n roll. However, I only have GREAT Romantic. Would anybody provide me with some moar?


Oh, and they have a new mini out next week,

Here's an 8min DVD that was given out free after the RIZE gig I saw a few months back..
[youtube=425,350]9W9KrKL06Ko[/youtube]
KenKen Live..

Tracks:
-:-- Bass Solo
5:40 宇宙ディスコ「アフロ de ムーチョ!」/ Uchyuu Disco [Afro de Macho!]
2:20 Sense

This guy is so fuckin' cool and a kick ass bassist..

:edit: Damn YouTube counter counts down, and not up like it does on the actual website..

Just noticed KenKen has marketed this clip as his one and only favourite, on his actual youtube (http://jp.youtube.com/user/kenkenweb) account..

Isn't he just the fuckin' coolest?!?!   O0

news from matsuri studio O0

Quote
We are going to go to the States due to recording our new album "Zazen Boys IV" with Dave Fridmann at the Tarbox Road studios from end of March to April.
We currently Matsuri Session furiously for the recording at the Matsuri studio.

Mukai Shutoku.


yeah, the place where NG's Numheavymetallic and Sappukei were made.

im getting the good chills :D


Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: Stryfe on March 13, 2008, 05:53:27 PM
I just wish Mukai took a wee bit less mushrooms for a little bit for this album. IDWBWY was a step in the right direction.

And regarding Frimann, yeah he worked on NG's last two albums but fuck, dunno if it was he who did some bad decisions on already rockin' MOTFD songs... I'm hopeful any case.

New VELTPUNCH album next month.


Great news! Thanks for the 411.
The new song DIC954 is a lot cleaner/softer sounding than anything off the White Album.  I thought I was watching a Base Ball Bear PV. hahaha. (not really a dis since I like BeBoBe)  The other new sample, "Mouse of the Pain" is closer to what I was expecting.

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3173/2731736487_88cf7fb719_o.jpg)

I can't wait till "Paint Your Life Gray" drops Sept 3.
Crappy that I miss the tour opener @ Shelter and the show in Nagoya with one of my other fave bands.. Qomolangma Tomato.
But I'll be in Japan Oct 4-19 so I'll try to convince my friends we need to head to Sendai on the 13th. An excuse to use our JR pass and check out Hokkaido. hahaha
(the list of shows I get to catch on my next trip is starting to look nice: (actually my next trip is Aug 16-31, and I might even go again in Nov/Dec)
Sambomaster/YSIG @ Shelter Oct 5
FREENOTE @ Shimo Que Oct 9
Rin Toshite Shigure/The Telephones/Ogre You Piehole/Art-School @ Akasaka Blitz Oct 10
Qomo Tomato @ Daikan Unit Oct 11
Veltpunch Oct 13
and hopefully the band I recently got my friend addicted to: Midori (they told me they'll be touring in October though no set dates yet).

Don't know if you like either of these bands but other new releases I'm keen on = FREENOTE "Route 3" Sept 24 and Spangle Call Lilli Line's new album Sept 23 (don't know the title and the release date is based on what I saw at Tower when I was in Japan a couple weeks ago). oh... and a new release from Mass of the Fermenting Dregs some time in 2013.

And these clips are old but you guys might not have seen them:

^ I remember those drum vids on nico nico. wish I had a decent drum set and try to learn :P

and lol, masudore release. We can finally get 2 more songs in 5 years!

Apparently the SCLL album is actually a double album. Or whatever "two releases" is supposed to mean. (Damn you google translate)

Heh, I know this is old, but can someone recommend me some J-rock bands that are popular? Apparently, I have a hard time finding some, since everyone's bashing every "popular" j-rock band :( (my friends)

Anything would do~!.

So far I have been listening to The Gazette.

Thanks ^^  :cow:

Post by: Stryfe on September 15, 2008, 12:25:19 AM
Thanks for the album.

It's better than the trainwreck that was ZBIII, that's for sure. As much as I'd love to praise Mukai to high heavens, he doesn't quite hit the bullseye with this one either and drifts off with his experiments in cacophony a little too much, once again, at the expense of coherent songwriting. His newfound joy, the simple, melodic synth experiments work far better and make the sound refreshing.

The album has its moments, even though those are mainly the tracks we've heard already. Here and there. The final twosome, Drifting/DWBWY remix and Sabaku, close the album brilliantly.

All that said, it's a big step up and a return to form.
Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: iacus on September 15, 2008, 01:15:59 AM
I think ZBIII had a damn near perfect flow throughout the album. Pop, noise, funk, rock. It did it all and it was all really good.
I think there's a disconnect between the synth ballads that open and close ZB4 and the funk-noise that's in the middle. Both sides are good but I wish they had been able to connect them somehow.

its kinda sad to say, but its hard for them to top ZBII, the overall 'feel' and comprehensive theme in that album is still one of their/the best, maybe inazawa's to blame. :lol:


as for ZB4... what can i say, the band *coughmukaicough* has moved on to new directions, ZBIII was the test run, this is 1st gear.

im still not used to the finer bass playing of yoshida, "wankster fagget" may not have been the most impressive, but at least it had more 'personality'
Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: boykun on September 15, 2008, 06:50:07 AM
Agreed, I think ZBII is their best. It's the most consistent. ZB4 is great though. I really like all the simple synth stuff now after listening to it for a while, and watching this > http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm4152423. The sound works well with the structured playing of Yoshida and Matsushita; kind of a contrast from the previous rhythm section. That said, I still like "wankster fagget" just a tad more.

The Drifting / I Don't Wanna Be With You is quite the winner.

Thanks for SCLL Stryfe.
I only downoaded it minutes ago and had a cursory listen but it sounds great.
I do wish they could have added a bit of variety though instead of having all the songs downtempo/melancholic.
A few songs reminicent of Lilli Disco or some of the uptempo songs on For Installation or Trace would have made the album even stronger, IMO.
But at the very least it's cohesive in tone and consistently solid throughout.

I'm not that big of a fan of te' or anything, but the new album is pretty darn good.

It's like they switched to a more varied and faster sound. Rather than the slow, boring, poorly written stuff off of the last album.
Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: Stryfe on October 08, 2008, 11:56:39 PM
Aaahhhg, I don't know. It's a pretty solid effort but... it ain't no Naraba.

Guess I'm always gonna be let down with expectations that high. I mean, it is a good album with some killer tunes, and at times they almost reach that raw emotional high that made them so memorable in their first effort, yet I'm sort of... unimpressed.

Oh well, just first impressions. We'll see.
Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: boykun on October 09, 2008, 02:28:54 AM
Hm, I kind of feel the same way. Though it did take me quite a while to like their last album. It just needs to grow on me.

Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: StreakInTheSky on October 09, 2008, 04:23:04 AM
:lol: I feel the same way.

It's good, but there's that something missing. Like stryfe said, that emotion you feel when listening to their older stuff isn't really there.

It's a lot more rhythmic and rock-ish I think and not as dynamic and melodic as their older stuff, which I thought they had a perfect balance of before.
Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: boykun on October 09, 2008, 05:00:50 AM
By the way, is it tagged te' or té?

I think this was discussed before, but last.fm insists té is the correct tag, despite all their official websites citing te'.




Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: StreakInTheSky on October 09, 2008, 05:44:17 AM
well the logo looks like té and when typed out they always use te'. I perfer te' myself since that's also what amazon and the zankyo site uses and that's all official enough for me. Though the pronunciation would be different depending on which one you use.

Someone should just go ask the band. :lol:


And while we're on te' here's the PV for Yume to blah blah blah. Typing out té is like saying the whole title of every track

I've liked everything they've released so far, but yeah, there's just something about the first album. It's got a rawer sound.

I'd say té is the more correct tag, but like SITS said the official one seems to be te'. :lol: I believe té is harder to type with a Japanese keyboard?

A bit late jumping on the "New Veltpunch is their best eva" bandwagon, but I'll hop in coz it is. Even the poppier tracks have edge, memorable riffs, and some fucking balls. Great stuff. Diverse, catchy tunes. GJ.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0BFVmBxtsI

...

Also thanks for the Lostage... I haven't listened to it much yet but the general feel I get is that no single song really sticks out, but I sort of like the mood. Which indicates a wee bit lackluster songwriting. What happened since Play with Isolation, huh? That album had the perfect balance.

And the new Vola has its moments but generally it's just. so. fucking. bland. Not nearly as bad as Shitdroid but... C'mon, Inazawa. You can do it.

Post by: JDAckers on October 14, 2008, 04:34:38 PM
An imitation's superstar seems to be the only stand out song from the new album. I nearly bought it because I thought it was 9 songs, but there are 3 interludes and an intro... I'm not going to pay over £10 + p&p for a mini-album. :angry:

Rin Toshite Shigure's new single coming out on December 24 2008 called "moment A rhythm". I'm guessing the limited edition comes with a 48 page photobook. But looking at this ...

http://www.yesasia.com/us/moment-a-rhythm-first-press-limited-edition-japan-version/1013001678-0-0-0-en/info.html

It's only one song?

Can anyone confirm this?

So they're signed by Sony under Nakano Records now?

It's pretty much a 17 minute track :lol: Intersting news. I wonder if the BG of the site is any indication of how the song will sound.

The booklet is going to be 48p of pics from London

Title: Japanese Screamo
Post by: holdmelikeonnaboo on November 28, 2008, 08:52:15 AM
So who here is into the Japanese screamo scene?

Envy, Gauge Means Nothing, Sora, Nitro Mega Prayer, Killie, Heaven in Her Arms, etc.

Feel free to recommend stuff
Title: Re: Japanese Screamo
Post by: iacus on November 28, 2008, 10:55:29 AM
I've kinda gone away from screamo in recent times.  Just like most sub-genres most of the bands therein sound really similar to each other. Or at least too similar for my tastes. But there's a whole bunch of bands that seem like they'd be really great that I just haven't gotten around to listening to yet.

Yolz in the sky, Tiala, Kulara, there is a light that never goes out/Z, envy, and killie would probably get my vote as the best "screamo" in japan. I guess Melt-banana and rin toshite shigure probably qualify as screamo too. They certainly scream anyway.
Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: StreakInTheSky on December 01, 2008, 12:02:58 PM
I was into that stuff a few years ago but not really much lately. I'm too lazy to sift through all the crappy bands that sound exactly alike to find something worth listening to. When I'm not too lazy and it's not 3am I'll try to think of some bands.

Anyways, I sometimes talk about how I don't really like it when japanese bands sing in crappy english, but I just found out Scott Murphy from the band Allister covers a bunch of japanese songs and makes pop-punk covers of them. :lol:

here's the doraemon theme.

2009.5.13発売 SMAR ¥2,800(tax-in) [AICL-2014]
1. ハカイヨノユメ
2. Hysteric phase show
3. Tremolo+A
4. JPOP Xfile
5. a 7days wonder
6. a over die
7. Telecastic fake show
8. seacret cm
9. moment A rhythm (short ver.)
10. mib126

Kinda disappointed to see Telecastic fake show in there, it's like most mainstream j-music. :/ Hopefully it will be a new recording, but most likely not. Would've preferred they add a rerecording of one of their older songs.

I really hope that moment A rhythm is a completely new version of the song ... somehow. Also, dibs that "a over die" will be a good song along the lines of "cool j." I already pre-ordered this album ages ago.

^^ Well I meant it as putting a single into an album like mainstream j-music. I actually really like the song. :lol:

But, yeah, a rerecording of Ling would be nice, or something off of #2.

Well the new Rin Toshite has been leaked. If you haven't grabbed it already, I recommend you head to the Obscure Artist thread and do so.

The new album is bad ass. I love how this band continues to evolve and push themselves without sounding like shit or ditching their sound. :lol: I still don't know what song is my favorite after i few listens, but I'm leaning towards mib126 for its epicness. It's like the whole album in one track.
Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: Ayabie on May 14, 2009, 01:57:12 PM
I'm liking everything about this album, except for the cover. I guess they were serious about the dead inspiration... It's still hard to pick any favorites, but it feels good to know they'll probably still be around if TK runs out of lyrics. :lol:
Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: boykun on May 15, 2009, 12:14:59 AM
New album is goooood stuff. I like the whole thing more than their previous album. Songs have killer instrumentation. Great playing. I also can't pick out a favorite yet, but a few, like Tremolo+A and a over die, caught my ears at first listen.



Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: doubledown11 on May 15, 2009, 07:19:09 PM
Hmmm...  if it were my first exposure to RTS I'd say it's an unbelieveably good album.
They stepped up the instrumentation and they're tighter than ever.
However, within the album there isn't a whole lot of variation.  On top of that, listening to each song brings moments of deja vu.  There are parts of songs that sound eerily similar to motifs they've used in the past.  The vocal melodies in particular are exceedingly simple and re-hashed maybe in a different key but with the same intervals.
Take any given song in isolation.. it's fucking mind-blowing.  But listening to the tracks one after each other, and having their older material subliminally fossilized in my brain the album seems repetitive.  It seems to me they were fucking lazy in coming up with material for this album.  They seem to use the same mold/blueprint for each song, change up the intro a bit, add some more gain/distort to the bass, make minor tweaks to the arrangement and call it a new song.
A+ on musicianship but C minus for overall creativity.
Qomolangma Tomato are nowhere near as skilled as musicians but "Camouflage" is easily the superior album at least to my ears.
Plus the bonus DVD with footage from their one-man at Daikan Unit perfectly distills the energy and brilliance of their legendary live performances.  The latter half of the DVD from "seijaku.." to "359.." is especially godhead.
Also, the Kll Your TV comp is another album I'm enjoying a lot more than RTS "Just A Moment"
Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: Stryfe on May 15, 2009, 07:44:30 PM
Maybe inspiration really is dead... :lol:

Anyway, good album, some cool tracks, re-hash galore, somewhat forgettable as a whole, doesn't touch #4.

Hella late on this one, but I'd hero worship anyone who uploads the album Shikakui Vision by Sloth Love Chunks. I'm a huge Number Girl fan, and I enjoy the bands that spawned after their demise. Heard good things about this one, but I've never actually heard any songs.

Might as well ask for these while I'm at it:

Live at Yaon - Zazen Boys
Omoide in my Head 3 - Number Girl (I've been asking for that for years...)

Oh mighty uploaders, grant me these three wishes!  :bow:

Quote
While there are a host of things about té's sound one could scoff at, it is the blunt tastelessness that pervades their sound that is most off-putting. An insistent fusion of instrumental modern rock, Tortoise and Satriani, Japan's té could hardly be described as "high brow" or "art music," save for the mammoth pretentiousness of their ridiculous song titles. Although each of these niche influences can stake a fair claim to artistic integrity, it is apparent from the get-go that té is none too concerned with being daring or difficult; té's predominant interest is in rocking.

This relentless pursuit, however, produces only fleeting moments of success. In certain modes, té incorporates math-rock clichés, be they stuttering, chunky riffs or slightly odd time signatures. In other guises, té is Tortoise-lite, albeit distinguished by a definite amateurishness in their token jazz phrasing. It is as if té encountered Tortoise by way of Explosions in the Sky by way of And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead, absorbing the jazz-bo feel of those Chicago luminaries as mere affectation. Indeed, although the surface feel of té is something of a mixture of the aforementioned bands' sounds with Don Cabellero's ambitions, the execution feels hardly livelier than a teenager sitting down his father for a feeble run through the Guitar Grimoire.

té has too much experience to be caught in these games. Surely at this point the band should be showing a greater mastery of concept and execution, as well as a restlessness to form a distinct identity. Sadly, as time passes, early buzz can devolve into an ugly sense of fruitlessness. Here, as with a child that never learns Spanish beyond counting, or a basketball player obsessed with only dunking, té took instrumental competence and clung to it, but to ever diminishing returns. Nothing on these tracks indicates an evolved awareness of composition. Each track clings helplessly to a statement of theme, a slight variation, and subsequent repetitions ad naseum of both. There is no understanding of the drums' role here, as the snare drum is pounded incessantly, and placed too high in the mix. Indeed, it is telling how crucial the band feels it is for their rhythm section, all time keeping on snare and manic baselines, to be explicit. For music attempting to rock, that is fine; for music attempting more, it betrays a lack of confidence.

All is not lost, however. té, as with most bands, would do well to place equal importance on their jamming and the refinement of the essence of their pieces. Such pounding on the snare, such ceaseless bass noodling, only detracts from what is essential here. They obscure the strong points of te's compositions: the melodies. Sure, there is not yet a confident development of these melodies, but while the rhythm wants to go fast, the twin guitar attack, characterized by ringing overtones and picking patterns paired with driving, macro melodies, wants to go slow. In fact, was this to be only about the guitars, it would be a greatly improved record. The themes, when they get to them, are interesting, and it is easy to tell why the band fell prey to the urge to repeat them. té would be much better off nurturing these melodies, perhaps not as an ambient band, because that is not who they are, but instead through builds, patience, and by showing the confidence in being a band where everybody doesn't have to play at the same time.

Yeah, I didn't really like the b-sides that much.  But it did make me take out the album again.

The first half is really great, the second half slightly less so.  Forgot what a great voice the singer has.

About that te' thing.

I partly agree with the article. I think I would have agreed more with the article when their second album was released. But the more I listened to them, there's just something I like about them more than most post-rock bands. It's just instrumental rock songs with awesome melodies to me. And they seem awesome as hell live. I really like their latest album, though there were a couple fillers, and hope for more in the future. I hope hiro makes a full recovery and can get back on the road with them. I had no idea he was sick until a few days ago when I was wondering what happened to them.

BTW can someone share their first album and singles? I forgot to bring them with me, and subsequently deleted them when I formatted my hdd back home...

Am I the only one who didn't enjoy Zazen Boys IV? People said that it was a "return to form," but I only liked Asobi, Sabaku, and Honnoji.
And I didn't like them that much.

If they keep going down that path, I don't think I can listen to them anymore.  :cry:

I think people were just happy that it wasn't anything like Zazen Boys III... coz that album sucked hard.

I remember I thought ZB4 was fine, but I haven't listened to it since it came out.  :P

Zazen Boys IV was mediocre.

2010 First Musical Guest: Dazzle Vision
 Sakura-Con is pleased to present 2010's first musical guests: Dazzle Vision.

Popular in the Japanese indie scene for their hard rock sound and Maiko's alternating melodic/death-voice vocals, Dazzle Vision was formed in June 2003, and has held their current lineup since May 2008.

Dazzle released their first album "Origin of Dazzle" in November of 2006. Their second album "Camellia Japonica" was released in April 2007, followed by an 11-city tour of Japan. After selling out of the first presses of "Origin of Dazzle" and "Camellia Japonica," their 3rd album "Crystal Children" hit #1 on HMV's pre-sale chart and #2 on Tower Records pre-sale chart prior to its official release in November 2008.

Dazzle Vision's appearance at Sakura-Con will mark their first live performance in North America.
 

I didn't find a thread for them here. Amy one know about them? They any good? I was hoping for a H!P act to be anounced first.

Title: Re: General Japanese Rock Thread
Post by: StreakInTheSky on November 09, 2009, 08:07:12 AM
So I went to my first show in Japan. It was sgt.'s Osaka show in promotion of their new album. Middle9 and Dry River String opened for them.

The place was in the basement of a little shop, almost passed it up, but the person I was with noticed the stairway and I noticed the little signs of the venue name, Unagidani sunsui. The only indicators of it being the venue were a couple A4 sheets of paper, haha. It was a pretty nice turn-up, maybe 40 people? lol Small and cozy place but it didn't feel crowded at all, was really nice. Fairly good PA set-up and acoustics. We were the only foreigners in the damn place. haha Me, being the Asian I am blended in perfectly with the crowd, though couldn't say the same about my German friend. lol We got a few stares from our conversations in English lol.

First band to come out was Dry River String. Their keyboardist ran the merch table. I checked their myspace for a little bit before coming to the show, but didn't really know them. It was a nice set. Mainly acoustic guitars, some keys and Engrish vocals. The guitar work reminds me of Toe for a couple songs.

Next was middle9. Really cool band with a funny guitarist who MC'd their set. Downloaded their albums from here but haven't really listened to them much so not really familiar with their music. Really liked them, but the trumpet could have been a bit louder, could hardly hear it over the other instruments. Was nice instrumental upbeat Jazzy music, got me to start moving my feet a bit. I liked the xylophone! Also the guitarist chugged a mug of beer and was talking about how a couple of the girls in the audience were cute. His wife is the keyboardist/xylophone player btw. :P She's pretty cute and that indie geek kind of way.

After them, I went out to get a drink since it was a one drink minimum. Got a Kirin Strong Seven since that was the only "beer" you can get with the ticket they gave you when you entered the club. It was actually pretty strong. lol Didn't have dinner and sorta gulped it down so I was already feeling some of its affects. Debated buying merch, but decided to wait til later. So my companion and I went back into the stage room and made our way to the center of the room and waited for the band to come out.

Then they finally came out. From start to finish it was just wow. I've only seen one post-rock band live before this (I think they were called Cul de Sac, they were alright), but this was a completely different experience from the last time. I don't know if it was cause of the alcohol, but it was like pure euphoria, something I've never felt from watching a band before. Plus Mikiko Narui is so hot!!! If you've seen the Apollo Program PV, she was wearing that same dress and had her hair all made up. Simply a beautiful sight to behold on that stage while she played her violin. lol She was like the frontman of the group. Unlike most bands, they have a strange set-up with the drums and violins up at the front and the bass and guitar to the back. And I think that set-up really affected how you heard the music. The rock drum beats just made you want to dance around, while the sounds of the violins made you just want to ride with the melodies. Not to take away from the bass and guitars, as they really filled out their sounds and were great too. The set was fairly spread out among their dischography. Though it consisted of only 6 or 7 pieces. Don't remember all the pieces they played and could hardly remember the order. It's hard when I don't remember most of the names of them. haha They played Paranoia from their split, and 銀河の車窓から from perception of casualty. Of course they were pretty limited to what they could play since they didn't have any other instruments besides the basic 4 they had. I liked Mikiko's use of her effects peddles with the feedback from her violin though and the way she used it to produce different sounds. During the MC before their last songs Hitoshi, the drummer, mentioned how hot it was and someone in the audience told him to take off his shirt. haha During a drum break near the end, he stood up on his drum throne and ripped his buttoned shirt off, sending buttons flying across the room showing off his belly and manboobs haha. For the encore he came out with a small sweat towel covering himself haha. What I liked a lot about the whole thing is just how much fun they looked like they were having up there, often smiling while playing. It was really just a good time.

I didn't have a chance to go to the bank before the show and withdraw some money so I was really limited in my merch purchase :/ No ATM around either. Not to mention how much Japanese merch is... So ended up getting one t-shirt, which ended up being slightly too big. Who ever told me that Japanese shirts are almost a size smaller than american shirts were lying to me... I'll still wear it though, it's peach colored, with hot pink print, how can I not?! They also had sggmt with a bonus bootleg of an unreleased track bundled that I couldn't get. :( Hopefully that pops up somewhere.

Not really into taking pics at shows but here's one I took. Not really that great but whatever :P

(http://img194.imageshack.us/img194/8609/dsc02802k.th.jpg) (http://img194.imageshack.us/i/dsc02802k.jpg/)

I really want to see them again, and I never really care to see most bands twice. lol So jealous of the people who get to see their one man show in Shimokitazawa (Ayabie?) Since they're bringing some guest instrumentalists with them.

Well hoped you guys liked my re-cap.

Next month I'm going to see 凛として時雨, Mass of the Fermenting Dregs, and Sakanaction for Nexus @ Osaka.

Ghost is a Japanese psychedelic rock band.
Ghost - Ganagmanag (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mg2OZXAqvVY#normal)

In 1984 Ghost was formed in Tokyo. In the beginning, they played only improvisation / freeform music naturally. But when they started their first recording in 1988, their music had been changing to more constructive one. Still now on their live activities we can find they play improvisation sometimes.

Their music was based on acoustic guitar usually. A lot ethnic instruments or strange instruments are added to it freely on recording. And the place they play were so unique as examples — buddist temples, churches, ruins, metro, fields, woods, caves... Such strange methods are nothing but ones of their expressions. They are Ghost anytime.

I quoted from here.

I thought someone already posted that... Well, I've seen it before lol.

Oh yeah, so saw Rin Toshite on Monday. Was a bad ass show, even though I hadn't slept for about 36 hours lol

Got there about 20 minutes before the show began. They were already sold out of most of the medium sized shirts for all the designs though. :( Damn kids... And I'm serious when I say kids, their fanbase consists of a bunch of teens it seems. lol And also really cute girls... Also they weren't selling the score book like it said on their site... From the various shirts they had, ended up getting the only shirt with a medium size available which is the ugliest one... haha This tour shirt/logo was designed my 345, and it was really nice, too... Don't know if she designs the other stuff... Shoulda got a towel, too.

Played songs from all releases since #4, the usual that you can see on youtube and stuff. They played a couple new songs, didn't mention any titles. They were pretty good, but yeah, pretty much the same old stuff again... Damn major label and frequent releases is killing this band artistically maybe... Hearing the older stuff from #4 and UFO were nice. I usually skip Boukan when I listen to #4, but it was awesome live. A real highlight of everything for me though was the lighting. Just made everything awesome and blinding. haha Over all I loved it though, still an amazing experience, and they're so good live, all three of them. Pierre did some insane drum solo during his introduction MC. lol

Next month I see toe. Maybe I'll write a better recap of that. lol I'm just really burned out lately...

i wish there were a better and more complete footage of this  :shock1:

First of all those  that's my video footage.
2ndly, it's illegal to take videos at shows so it's a little hard to get "better" footage and remain incognito.
3rdly, that's not the setlist. That's a list of the musicians that took part in the event.  From that list they mixed and matched 3 drummers, 2 bassplayers and a keyboardist for each set.
4th, I have tons more footage from that event, there are actually 3 more videos on YT and much more I haven't upped.
5th, thanks for embedding the vids here at JPH!P (for real, not being sarcastic), but you could have at least referenced the fact that they're mine since I occasionally post in this forum (and at jmr and at Shangri-la/Chatmonchy forum where you also post at).

ugh the hell did i do again? <__<

first of all, thanks for the peak at what looked like an awesome event. seriously, i'm grateful as a fan.

anyways, i understand really, and yes i'm aware its not the 'setlist', but more of the artists that took turns, w/e. and reason why i didn't credit you is that its a youtube link, not a download, its pretty obvious that who ever uploaded the vids is the source.. right? and the links are posted here, so if you click them, it'll lead to your vids, on your account...

and i rarely post here, so i'm not really aware of the posters (even at shangrila and jmr lol)... how should i know you'd be here? :V so yeah, BIG THANKS, though relax, nobody's stealin' your pimp points  8)

peace, and again, sorry for the confus

ps-  damn you, you were there >:O inazawa is drumming again, and you saw it

It was one of the coolest events I've been to and  although I'm not a diehard Number Girl fan I realize I was pretty damn lucky to see Inazawa show his prowess on skins.   I actually ran into him again at Shiimokitazawa 3 a few days later where he was DJing with Fukuoka Akiko of Chatmonchy.

In terms of DJ skills.... neither Inazawa nor Akkobin should quit their day jobs.

Sorry about the earlier post. I overreacted.  I guess it was spillover from the jmr weirdness.

I have to admit to being a horrible jerk and not reading each of the 41 pages on this thread, but how much interest is there in the 70s/80s? I'm currently living in Tokyo and researching a book on Japanese rock music, and I just don't see much reference to bands like Zuno Keisatsu, Anarchy, Gauze, Yapoos, Marble Sheep, etc.

I have to admit I don't have much use for Jpop or VK :D

^Saw them last night for group_inou's tour. The couple new tracks from Illumination they played were so good. It's got more of the IDM stuff that was touched on in The Sun Sank. Also, maybe it was just cause it was live, but felt a bit heavier, with an almost dubstep feel to it. The new sound kinda reminded me of Arakajime Kimerareta Koibitotachi he. Can't wait for the release. Really talented guys. They play live just as well as they do on record. Sadly I will be heading back before their release tour. They apparently played a show in L.A. back in March. Asked if they planned on coming back, and was told maybe next year, so hope that happens.

group_inou was also awesome. A must see live. the energy of their set is amazing. Just an overall fun and feel-good group. They seem to draw in the ladies despite being two geeky looking dudes. lol


Anyways, after long searches, still looking for the new te', kamomekamome, texas pandaa, and luminous orange. Damn mac slsk clients are all dead or unusable so can't look there either... or someone tell me what's worth buying. lol

Surprised no mention of this band here, one of my faves :twothumbs...LOVE PSYCHEDELICO. Short bio here:

Love Psychedelico (ラブ・サイケデリコ - RABU SAIKEDERIKO) is a Japanese band, widely popular in Hong Kong, Japan and Taiwan.
The band was formed in 1997 by singer Kumi (born April 11, 1976 in Chiba Prefecture) and guitarist Naoki Sato (born July 21, 1973 in Shizuoka Prefecture[1]), while studying at Aoyama Gakuin University in Tokyo. They signed with major label Victor in 1999. In Japan they are often called Delico for short.
Stylistically, Love Psychedelico is highly reminiscent of the British Invasion of the late 60s, both members having cited The Beatles and Led Zeppelin as influences, though the influence of American folk and blues are also present (Kumi having claimed Janis Joplin and Sheryl Crow, and Sato Bob Dylan, as influences). To pay tribute to their influences, Love Psychedelico sometimes borrow song titles from the bands that influence them.
Kumi's lyrics are a mix of English and Japanese, a phenomenon common to popular Japanese music. Kumi often attributes her English language proficiency to her early childhood in San Francisco, California.

My favorite jrock band is Onmyouza, very good metal with a focus on the dark side of ancient japanese history and mythology.

firstly i know about fear and loathing in vegas is in anime hunter x hunter (remake)
it has kind taste of electric, emo and little scream.

While I don't know much about them, I do have some fear and loathing in las vegas, if you're interested.

First off, thanks for every contribution within this thread. I've already found several interesting new bands, or new releases by bands I know that I missed.

And especially a big thanks for the link to tricot's video as I really dig that song and all the other videos the band put online (most are seriously hilarious)
But here's my question, does anybody have their Mini-Album 爆裂トリコさん and would like to share it?
Wanted to buy it myself, as I'd be willing to pay the 1300 Yen for 5 songs, but the only retailer online doesn't ship to my country and it's not on itunes.

Somewhat related to tricot, as in this is an all-girl Rock Band aswell, here's a song by The Clap.

i got addicted to Versailles and ONE OK ROCK  for a while last year. currently listening to versailles's masquerade, which isnt their best work. Aristocrats symphony and love from a dead orchestra is prolly my fav from versailles. one ok rock went a bit down after the exit of their guitarist, and i still try to play koinoaiboukokoronokupido when i fool around a friend's guitar.

@dai he is also the guitarist for SEREMEDY

Seremedy - Bulletproof Roulette (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIZDSA34QoM#)

Although he has a pretty good song going there IMHO, well if he manages to get big it works in Japan for this culture :nervous

So, was randomly catching up on shit... What the FUCK happened to Bugy Craxone? Hahaha.



BUGY CRAXONE「ハレルヤ」MV (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEGS0vVw8Dk#ws)

Good lord, this song... vid is fun, though. With some epic Engrish.

This one's kinda tolerable.

I know they've changed their style over the years, but well, this particular shift isn't doing much for me...

Maybe the album has better material, tho I haven't read great things and the title "Joyful Joyful" isn't exactly promising. :lol:
