    AvelCain was a band with good moments in a largely forgettable discography, and those moments were when they managed to sound somewhat like a band and still retain that spirit. The problem wasn't that they were raw or something ( although the general consensus on MH is still that if a vocalist wouldn't be up to scratch competing in American Idol, he's probably shit and certainly not something one could be playing to their friends and relatives, ) but that they could barely even decide on a sound between all the chinese restaurant ost gimmicks, nu metal riffs and vaguely old school ballads and freak outs; and all of this exploration was being done with minimal musicianship while still insisting on having a clean studio sound ( which sounded awful to the point of almost being reminiscent of western vk production ) and making defined songs instead of bursts of noise which they probably should've been doing instead. For every Psycho and ID they had an ocean of mediocrity that Karma's lifestyle performance art took a level above. Idk what's the totality of their composition credits but I wouldn't be surprised if everything they made themselves was shit. This project sounds like he's finally going for something, a sound with a concise aesthetic and the influences he's working with here definitely mean that this is in the right side of history even if it isn't the best thing going so poseurs leave the hall.

    🔯2019 Predictions!🔯

    I just want to let ya'll know that Issei left Dimlim because he and Retsu don't get along anymore, NOT because of him harassing a minor on the internet. However, I also have a feeling that Issei will eventually leave Nazare. It sounds like he's difficult to work with. And some predictions: - DIMLIM will get more fans but won't come close to selling out O-WEST (just being realistic). However, regardless of the outcome of that live they will not disband this year. In addition to 離人 they might also release another single or a mini album at the end of the year. - XAA-XAA will continue to release two-type singles every 3-4 months despite not releasing an album in almost two years. (The album was terrible though so I don't blame them lol) - Amai Bouryoku will continue to only release live limited singles and mini albums consisting mostly of garbage with a good song mixed in once in a while. They will continue to have onemans at AREA/MUSE or similar sized venues throughout the year. - DEZERT will continue to suck the MUCC dick. - Kizu will have a oneman at Tokyo Dome City Hall or Studio Coast. - Jiluka will up the cap of their next big oneman in Tokyo despite not coming close to selling out Club Quattro. - Nokubura is gonna beat that dead horse into the ground and break up sometime this year or early next year. - Meto will slowly fade away into obscurity until Mejibray comes back (they won't).

    After two years of single after single, コドモドラゴン (CODOMO DRAGON) will finally release a new album, テグラマグラ (Tegra-Magra) on 12 March, 2019! As with their previous two albums, this one will be released in two types and include 11 tracks. TYPE A (¥3,780) will include a DVD with a music video for the song "DOUBT," and TYPE B (¥3,240) will include one bonus track, as per usual. If you buy both types, you can fill out a form to get a free pamphlet for their upcoming tour "HEADBANGING" No tracklist revealed yet, but if the recent 己龍 album can indicate anything, we can expect appearances from: この世界は終わりだ。(Kono Sekai wa Owari da), 毒虫 (Dokumushi), DIRTY×DIRTY, 脳壊ス。(Noukowasu.), 棘 (Toge), and 想葬 (Sousou). Various stores in Japan will include store-specific bonus items: http://codomo-dragon.net/news_detail/78958 Check out their in-store even schedule, from 12 March to 26 July: http://codomo-dragon.net/news_detail/78957 Their release date in-store will be at TOWER Records in Shinjuku And of course, their album tour, ヘッドバンギング (HEADBANGING) will last from 16 March to 20 July, with a tour finale on 27 July at マイナビBLITZ赤坂 in Tokyo.

    https://www.aarp.org/health/conditions-treatments/info-2018/musicians-hearing-loss.html it's not specific to Japanese artists (who in addition are likely living in the constant state of burnout unless their family funds payroll their career), it's the western culture of never disclosing actual issues and putting up a fake smile and a statement of gratitude for stans for supporting the 200+ date tours. doesn't really affect hearing, but every time you hear about sudden liver transplants and "mental maintenance breaks" that's the roundabout way to cover up an addiction.

    DIMLIM

    It's on Tanuki. Issei and Tsubasa both had their own share of problems. It sounds like Ryuya and Sho are fine with Issei now but Retsu still hates Issei's guts. Apparently Issei tried to invite Dimlim to play at Nazare's first sponsored event but Retsu told him to fuck off. One can assume they will never play together. Also fyi none of the Japanese fans knew about Issei harassing that girl until I told them about it.

    I don't mind Jin but I get the impression that he's the type of person who has a strong vision that he tries hard to achieve, but he just doesn't know what to do in order to achieve it, and maybe he tries to do all the important things on his own. I thought Nega was decent but I never liked them enough when they were still around. I really liked The Black Swan though, maybe more than most people, but I mostly liked them for the instruments and songwriting in that regard. For this band I am hoping that Jin will get it right this time and will let the other band members take charge of direction too.

    I loved avelcain but I'm not sure I will love rands. Maybe bc of karma's fangirls... He's awesome as a person, and average as vocalist, never thought this could be that terribly hard to decide on what side I want to be

    La La Love is pretty good :D. I'll have to give the whole mini a good listen starting tomorrow. I miss China line tho ;_;. At least they're included in the song "Memories". GFRIEND has me hypppped. I actually like this concept more than "Time for the moon night", which I thought was "artsy" enough for them.

    Here I go: - Yoshiki will do more collabs no one cares about. - Hyde will do more collabs no one cares about. - GazettE will release a live DVD after the world tour. - Kizu will release a full album, but will also lose a member (my money is on the drummer) - Jiluka wil release a single in the second half of the year. - D will release a conceptual album, going back to the Vampire Saga days. - DIMLIM will play it slow and steady, will release a single and maybe a mini album. - More Kisaki drama. With no consequences. - Another bandman arrested for "antisocial behavior". - Another bandmember scamming their bandmates. - NokuBura tries to stay afloat but ultimately disbands. - Diaura releases another single and an album. - Karma's new act will dissapoint. So will Byo's. - MiA will start yet another project no one will take seriously.

    I'll check it out because it's Jin and I admire how committed he is to vk, even if I haven't clicked with anything he's been a part of since early Nega and a couple of rando songs from tbs.

    Yeah you have pretty much summed up that news article. Can't believe he went to Sanrio though! lol The article quotes Kyo: "They (Sanrio) may want to avoid a slightly scary character. I don't like normal happy endings. I will publish this for people who resonate with the realism it depicts." And it also says he may do a sequel or create a mascot character ("yuru kyara") I would love to see his yuru-kyara XD And the article opens with an introduction of Kyo as "vocalist of visual-kei rock band, DIR EN GREY". So yeah, DEG is still only recognised as a vk band.

    I just listened to サイコ at Tatsuro’s radio program and DUDE I am blown away. It’s a song that matches very well their concept photos. It sounds like how the pictures look, if that makes sense. I can’t wait to listen to the whole album and cry. That’s it from me *mic drop*
