    Hey, I'm Here Again

    Hello to this heaven, I came back from hell, probably the second time 😉 yeah.. I took myself away from all online social media platforms three years ago I would say. but yes! Girugamesh is what brought me back, listening to their old school tunes got me thinking of Jrock again! I think I said this in my previous, "I'm Back!" post. I really don't keep up with any news of Jrock of today. I guess for Dir en Grey I do know, but that was pretty much unavoidable for me. Still listen to their music time to time. but yes for the most part, clueless. What I still listen to are, Dir en Grey, Malice Mizer, Moi Dix Mois, emmuree, The God and Death Stars and Girugamesh. I REALLY love weird fuckin music, so I'll be looking for that. Recommend, mention, comment and hopefully it'll be in my path to see. I listen to all worlds of music. Does anyone remember me? No? its okay. You're probably not here either. again! Hello to everyone!

    To be fair, you have to have a very high I.Q. to understand DIR EN GREY album art.

    It literally looks like something that was slapped together by some intern who learned how to work Photoshop like five minutes ago, idk why y'all are reading so deeply into this as if it has some profound and deep meaning

    I can definitely also see the paralels to sukekiyo, in both bands! As for Black Metal or DSBM and VK together, it's actually very surprising that there aren't more bands doing it. With all the occultism, depression, suicide and general nihilism in the themes many bands are using and the fact that basically any metal genre can be considered 'VK music' now as long as the band has the look and plays at certain events its not that unlikely. Recently I saw a japanese article about Madmans Esprit and that genre combination that is very in-depth and it way interesting to read. Although I was surprised of them calling early mucc DSBM. Actually he is the guitarist of ms. isohp romatem while their vocalist is support guitarist for his live shows. Your point still stands, though. The metal scene in South Korea is already shockingly small and a visual kei scene pretty much does not exist anymore except for 3-4 bands. BP records bands keep playing shows there, though. So there has to be at least something... btw, new look of ms. isohp romatem

    I think the cover is very beautiful and intriguing. I will admit though that it is rather unusual for DEG, not only because of their choice of colors but also (and especially) because the more I think about the motif, colors and different design elements, the more I get the feeling that this cover art expresses something radically contrary to what the album title suggests (and contrary to DEG's usual vibe): peace, enlightenment and spirituality. At first I tried to read it from the usual angle: dark, depressive, gloomy, aggressive etc. and the fractal design of the cover came to mind and I thought, well, maybe it signifies something along the lines of a fragmented personality/world (lat. fractus = broken) or that everything repeats itself endlessly. That would mean that nothing can truly change because real change without repetition is not possible resulting in immobility and apathy. That's where the "insulation" from the album title comes in. Plus the funnel-like objects surrounding the pupils have those dark swirls in them which might be a metaphor for all the pain and suffering or generally bad things this person has absorbed etc... BUT then there’s the general expression of that person on the cover which I'm deducing mainly from the mouth and they look quite content, graceful, even dignified. The eyes are certainly wide open, so they seem to be quite perceptive and open to experience. The bindi-like dot on the forehead (the location of the third eye) is associated with spirituality and deeper perception and the color purple is usually associated with wisdom, peace, nobility, power, a higher self and so on. There's also the white fractal surrounding almost the entire head like a halo. Obviously, spiritual elements play a huge role in that image. But there's also the interplay between heaven (the golden area around the head looks like a sunlit sky) and earth (the green-brown area beginning on the neck and stretching further down to the chest) - so there's the heart that grounds you (soma) and the mind that wanders and aspires to that which is located on a higher experiential plane (psyche). And that’s just off the top of my head… I think it’s a really cool cover and certainly lends itself to many interpretations. The spirituality aspect cannot be denied though I think and it makes me wonder if this is to represent a DEG that has shaken off its earthly shackles (like depression and pain) and has ascended to a higher realm of consciousness? 🙉And will that also show in lyrics? Or is it just artistic hybris: "Hey we have a new record, it'll blow your fucking mind". Whatever it is, I'm looking forward to it! PS: You guys are unimaginative and boring as shit with your snarky comments - why u sound so butthurt all the time?

    That’s what I’m saying. Something this goddamn ugly needs to do some crazy Tool shit like a lenticular cover or have stereoscopic 3D glasses built into the packaging. Years of dark, muted colors to this. It almost looks like a CGI render of the Glass Skin cover.

    yeah,that's it.and for sure, if they were japanese they would be one of the most commented bands here their sound really impresses me,plus the "korean essence" in it ,which something that i'm not used to as i said btw,the diversity,the passion,the elegant and at the same time sinister atmosphere on some tracks gives me strong Sukekiyo's vibes and it's one of the favorite bands of the vocalist,so he's definitely influenced i'm excited for this release,and glad that i've found someone to discuss about these guys their other project is pretty interesting as well

    I agree 100%! Pretty sure if it was Japanese, people on the forum would already be hyping it. But the Korean language matches this style of music very well.

    Dir en grey

    Official artworks unveiled, one for each edition: Wasn't expecting this... I thought they were going for a different art style, similar to the one hinted at the lastest promotional band photoshoot (white, pure and kind of ethereal, with some sort of a 'traditional asian' vibe -at least that was what Kaoru, Toshiya and Die's clothes seemed to hint for me). This looks like a mix between Tool and Björk. I really like it, but it seems weird! I give a lot of importance to an album's artwork, and it changes how I perceive its music. The only thing I do not like is the deathcore-ish font. On a second thought, it looks like a similar font to In Flames' 'A Sense of Purpose'...

    this is one of the best things i've heard this year,they deserve total attention of this forum visual kei and black metal,my two fav subgenres together,what could be better? and glad that they kept the korean language in most of the tracks, i'm definetely not used to listen any metal songs in korean,sounds really refreshing

    I'm guessing they censored a bunch of stuff to try and make the band seem more risque than they really are. I mean, one of the words they censored was "AV" (meaning adult video). They also censored him jacking off the microphone. So my guess is they're just trying to make themselves way edgier.

    Here is a very bad lighting bad quality picture of my vaporwave collection. Not in pic: SAILORWAVE, A Million Miles Away and FANTASY LP's I'll make a pleasing one later! That will include the Vinyl's and items that still have to arrive.
