    I don't get people who dislikes some bands,but keep an eye on them just to keep confirming they don't like it. Stupid and annoying.

    Right now from the new VK bands, I am very interested in RAZOR right now, I love their sound and almost everything that they have released so far has been very nice to me, I like The Thirteen too, and I'm super excited about the Alice in Menswear project. I will check out some of the new bands mentioned hear that I haven't listened to yet.

    Diaura officially switch labels

    To be fair, I don't think FORUM has an official website or Twitter. They do have an official Youtube channel tho (and weirdly enough a Google Plus profile with two updates, btw the profile points to the official MEJIBRAY website as the label's "official site" lol).

    Good thing that women are still standing up for themselves, even in Japan. Also men shouldn't have anything to say about it, as they are not the ones carrying the child in their body. Oh well, let's end this here. As we are heading off-topic now.

    Nearly got mowed down by a Deliveroo guy on his bicycle today (he was coming out of a narrow alleyway, so neither of us could see the other coming) and I apologised for getting in his way, but he just said "fucking hell..." and went away. Like, dude, you nearly ran me the fuck over. If anything, you should be the one apologising to me

    The big TV-series discussion thread

    Agreed. I thought a few of the episodes where a tad too long, but the series overall ere really good and entertaining. It's fun and witty, but at the same time it takes up some serious issues like sexuality among teenagers, the frustration and pressure and how hard it is to live with ridiculous expectations. Very pro-lgbt as well. It got renewed, and I am looking forward to it for sure.

    The big TV-series discussion thread

    Just wanted to drop by and mention that I've been really enjoying Sex Education on Netflix! It's got just the right balance of comedy and drama I like, plus I'm always a sucker for coming-of-age stories. The plot is nothing wildly impressive or out-of-the-box but done excellently, the actors are great (Gillian Anderson! ♥) and the soundtrack is killer. If anyone's looking for quality entertainment I totally recommend it.

    Holy shit, why are vk fans so delusional about their favorite musicians' habilities? Just because you like someone it doesn't mean they are technically perfect musicians above any criticism. No wonder vk has such an awful reputation

    Dir en grey

    Back when they were still on their prime, their heavy stuff was virtually unbeatable. Their attempt at making "heavy" stuff with TIW was just bad, dumbed down and annoying. I remember someone here saying that they should leave the heavy stuff to younger bands because they're doing it better than DeG now and it saddens me, but I agree. I honestly doubt anyone else will ever come up with something the level of Uroboros or DSS, but a lot of bands are pulling the whole extreme/alternative/prog metal(core) thingy better than DeG did with TIW. I think it's possible, they've "resurected" older songs before (albeit in heavily different forms sometimes). "Conceived Sorrow" and "Revelation of Mankind" were included on the albums that followed the ones they were originally composed for, for example.

    Dir en grey

    been listening to the DISC 3 of Vestiges,The unraveling mini,and the heaviest tracks of DSS,and GOD,their deathmetal era was so good.that production was criminally brutal,so much that makes your skin crawl,they were amazing.unfortunately,TIW still not flowing well to me,the only thing i could enjoy was Aka,and unless they release a remastered version of the album,i don't think it will ever grow on me.Usually i need time to digest an album,however,i keep retrying and revisiting and still the same...shit.

    The general Metal discussion thread

    Another new Saor song and this time it features Neige of Alcest. Better than the last track and one of the better Saor tracks to date, and much of it comes down to Neige's excellent vocals. He's just on a whole different planet vocal wise.

    Dir en grey

    22 years ago, on January 24, 1997, DIR EN GREY played their first ever show at Nagano J. Kyo, Kaoru, Die and Shinya arrived the day before and met Toshiya in a parking lot. They stayed at Toshiya's parents' house over night and on the next day, they booked two hours in a studio to rehearse. In the evening, there was an event and the future members of DIR EN GREY performed on stage together for the first time. Since they had not thought of a band name, they called themselves DEATHMASK and played around four Kuroyume cover songs. Toshiya also performed with D+L as their support guitarist on that evening. So since it's already the 24th in Japan, today marks 22 years since the true beginning of DIR EN GREY! 😊

    Last movie you saw.

    Apparently I didn't have anything better to do yesterday so I watched the 'extended version' of the original Swedish The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (a.k.a. Män som hatar kvinnor), which was like a 2-part movie in 3 hours total. I haven't previously read/seen any of the books/movies so this was my first encounter with this franchise. It was a pretty cool crime thriller that took its sweet time fleshing everything out but it didn't give me a chance to get bored thankfully. In other words, it had a good pacing, great characters, and I'm glad that basically all questions were answered by the end. I'll probably check out the sequel(s) too, and eventually the US remake/reboot thingies, even though I heard they aren't as good (tho I did hear praise about the David Fincher one).

    You are welcome! : D Although I'd be careful in interpreting any political statement into this. 'Abortion' has been a classic theme with the darker vk bands ever since 黒夢s 中絶 and 生きていた中絶児 in the early 90s. Dir en greys try on that motif is pretty well-known, too, I think. It's also important to notice that japans view on abortion is very different from many western countries with christian roots and this kind of song isn't as controversial there.
