    For VK? I suppose you mean VK has a distinct harsh vocal they'd adhere to? I don't mean this in a bad way I'm just genuinely curious 😶. At any rate, I'll always adore his harsh vocals in earlier albums, but as far as later album goes I think his harsh vocals come from a place of finding a proper technique that could be less damaging? I also always tend to think that harsh vocals from earlier albums were just an accent, something to add color, where as later on it was more of a prominent sound he was going for and so it sounds different with practice and has improved in my opinion.

    Yeah, I think I get where you're coming from. I can definitely see how finances will affect you're earnings. But as I mentioned before, my friend lives with her sister and mom so they split the rent and bills. And where we're from, which is a rather small town, the living costs aren't as expensive as bigger cities either. You can find 2-3 bedroom apartments for $500-700/month basically. I didn't mention before, but my friend partly took the job because her sister (who's older by 5+ years) was the one who wanted the job change (my friend doesn't have her license yet so they've been working the same jobs), and I feel like she was kinda forced to work at their current job because of her sister only. But then again, I don't know the full story as to how they came into an agreement for the job change so I probably shouldn't speculate too much on that. I still think she should be more independent and make her own decisions though. Being dependent on her older sister for having a job and transportation has probably been affecting her choices....

    I never bashed them, but I didn't care for their music, but that's mainly because metalcore isn't my thing and they sounded like every other generic metalcore vkei band. But the musicians do have skills at least. Can't say the same for Tsuzuku's voice tho lol

    They're hit and miss but they have some real bangers. I'd recommend checking out their singles albums as they contain most of their better songs (except Emily. Screw that song).

    Tsuzuku's voice is just like nails on a chalkboard and screams like Donald Duck, there I said it........plus their fandom is basically filled with 14 yr old transtrender kpop stans
  11. That was awesome! Reminds me of her work with Neko Saitou~

    glad my favorite gen 2 boi is getting some meme love --- Unless those comments are satirical/ in humor, those aren't real friends. To be honest, I realized very early on that completely divulging to others (or pushing) my Japanese hobbies without context would really come off as weird and awkward to most people. Luckily, in high-school I perfected the craft of introducing my friends, who had varying levels of interest in video games or anime, to j-rock & visual kei. While I wasn't as successful a vk missionary in college (immediately got the "hurr durr are u gay" question), I figured the more genres I had in my "repertoire" the better I could connect w/ people and possibly introduce them to vk. To this day, my wealth of music interests has been the king of icebreakers. Some successful examples: Late 00's - Early 2010's metalcore and post-hardcore was still huge, so I showed my metalhead friends the Crossfaith - Blue live clip (only their first album was out at the time), and they dug the shit out of that. Promptly blew up w/ their second album a year-and-a-half later. A friend of mine at the time liked the 14th opening to BLEACH, which was guess what, ViViD - Blue. Ended up getting him and a few others hooked on DIV. Friend of mine who mainly liked VGM (Video Game Music) found my earllly visual kei YouTube channel and really liked the SolariS tracks I posted, which was really interesting. I got him into the Raid.'s first mini and xTRiPx. Helped that he had a Korean-Canadian friend that introduced him to vocaloid/utaite stuff. While K-pop isn't for everyone, it has made strides to change the perspective of androgyny and masculinity in the U.S, and elsewhere. I had friends who were only into K-pop be completely accepting of visual kei aesthetics b/c they had that frame of reference.

    Gill'e Cadith. Even though they were short lived, their music is really important to me personally, and it's sad that Karuna barely does anything that I can vibe with anymore. At least bassist Shigure is playing support for Kimi wa Surudoku, so maybe a revival will come someday? Hopefully?

    ten copies?? given how expensive and time/resource-intensive it is to press vinyl that's one hell of a flex. hell, that's Asatsu-DK money!
  20. Megaromania, Celia'xeno, Malice Mizer, Da'vid/shito:aL, or Klein Kaiser...xD And Sear/Lene because they went to shit once they went to Starwave...

    D'espairsRay for sure, even if it meant their quality kept dropping. I was devastated once RENTRER EN SOI disbanded too, but now I can find comfort in knowing they ended things before it all went to shit (and it would've happened). Their timing was perfect. Other than that, I just wish Isshi was still alive.

    There are a bunch of rarities I'd like, but I'm broke and have to prioritize two things stand at the very top of my list: * There's a certain obscure-ass demo tape from Plastic Tree I'd love to own. The thing didn't even have a title, and there were only 50 copies made, which were all distributed at one specific show they were part of...in 1995. I have literally never seen it around, despite managing to turn up demos -- both for them and other bands -- with even smaller print runs (we're talking to the tune of 10~20 copies). Which is terribly frustrating, because from what's known about the tape, it has a 'really bizarre (/trippy)' alternate recording of one of their more unexpected songs that shows up exactly nowhere else. * "Welcome to the Double Bed", a demo tape for the titular band Double Bed, predating Kuroyume (...and Garnet...and SUS4...) alike as the first band Kiyoharu ever fronted. I was keeping a lookout for the thing for ages, and then had a couple week span where I was hanging out with some of my extended family and didn't keep a close vigil...guess what I learned had finally surfaced after the listing had already ended?

    I'd have to agree with UnsraW and Sadie. I'm not a fan of what has become of the latter with The Thirteen.
