    vkgy latest interview, with a famous vkei writer! Also I worked hard on this one so it's a cross post with JROCKNROLL Nagasawa Tomonori (長澤智典) is a music journalist of note, having written for most major visual kei magazines and bands. We had the chance to ask him questions over several weeks, and so we explore his career, and his decades-long view of visual kei from the inside. Choose your favorite platform vkgy or jrocknroll If there are people who still have any questions about the "visual kei" history, we can do another round So if you do have any questions, throw them to me and I'll will ask them!

    I don't think this revival should interfere much with MORE's super-busy "5 lives and 1 song per year" schedule.

    Man, it's so hard to believe emmurée has been around for two decades and still whatever they keep releasing over the years sounds so consistently high-quality. Not a bad song among them. What a band.

    Hellooo~!

    My interest in visual-kei made my friend introduce me to this place, I've never been on a forum before so I think this is very interesting...! I know it's not necessarily a genre of music, but the music of the sub-culture is what intrigued me... I discovered the stuff upon meeting a vk guy.DEG was my first proper introduction, of course, but my favorites are Malice Mizer (and members of), MUCC, the Gazzte, Velvet Eden, and that's all of what's coming to mind. I don't know what else you dandy people need to know to understand what I'm doing here(?) Well, I like art... I am pretty darn extreme about some things, too. Yes! I think that's all...??

    Y2K Aesthetic in Visual Kei Thread

    Recently, I've been getting more interested in the Y2K aesthetic. For those who don't know, the Y2K aesthetic is a collective term for the sleek futurism of the late 90's and early 2000's that manifested itself in music videos, fashion, and technology. As Aesthetic Wiki puts it, "Y2K is an aesthetic that was most prevalent from roughly 1998 to 2003. Y2K aesthetics are often characterized by a distinct aesthetic period, encapsulating fashion, hardware design, music and furnishings shiny with tech optimism – sometimes literally. According to the Y2K Institute, some of Y2K's aspects include, tight leather pants, silver eye-shadow, shiny clothing, Oakleys, gradients, and Blobjects and Blobitecture. Most of Y2K aesthetics rely on the use of technology and slick futuristic looks, signaling the optimism a new era as people approached the millennium". This thread is to discuss the use of the Y2K aesthetic in Visual Kei. One of my favourite examples is the iconic music video for Yokan by Dir en Grey. This pretty much speaks for itself And while this is definitely past the era of Y2K, the music video for Mikansei to GUILT by Phantasmagoria is definitely influenced by Y2k futurism.

    I am not sure about made to order, maybe the preorder is to see if they need to order to print extra batches or not? By the way, the costumer service person is so polite about it. Telling me his English is not very good but still very accommodating, telling me about the shipping cost. I feel a little bit guilty for replying in English. I ordered the CD and casette. I am interested with the tees too, but doesn't seem any sizing available aside from the fact it was "adult size", whatever that means, so I skipped it.

    For me it's just different musically in so many ways. I mean yes, they changed style to more extreme one(that's obvious). And in jrock fandom this always causes comparison with diru, rarely with some exceptions. Of course there are bands like Sadie who doesn't even try to hide their source of inspiration, let's call it like that. But I'm hearing it about every band that going into heavier stuff. Maybe I'm wrong and simply to much in love with 12012 self-titled album and later releases Cheers.

    And 12012 is reforming too, so the guitarist will likely be leaving for 12012 and replaced? if Leda joined breakin' holiday at this point, it'd be very hilarious.

    Man, that felt detailed 🤣 I dreamed to but forgot most of it, still remember something with wajo (the gallo) and Ryo(m:a.ture), but I forgot already the details... . 🤔 then my daughter woke me up...

    I'm not sure they mentioned anywhere that these would be made-to-order products (i.e. copies manufactured based on the number of preorders), I just assume when the release date comes it's not a 'pre-order' anymore, just a regular 'order'. In any case, pre-ordered (the CD)! edit: I also transcribed the supposed tracklist based on the YT preview (song order is not confirmed yet). トゥームーンジャンクション (TWO MOON JUNCTION) ジャングルに舞う (JUNGLE ni mau) ロマンシンファイター (ROMANCIN' FIGHTER) + their karaoke versions

    Y2K Aesthetic in Visual Kei Thread

    Gackt's Vanilla PV borrowed part of the aesthetic, even though you can still see the 90's here and there. I feel like Tonight PV by Luna Sea would have liked to use the aesthetic too (at least for the parts with the band playing inside the "futuristic" room) but the director/post production didn't received the memo (they didn't even put the omnipresent cold blue filter). OT: For the ones that don't know whats Y2K aesthetic is, basically the 2 biggest cultural spreader (and large scale influencer?) were Matrix and Bjork "All is full of love video" video, if my memory doesn't fail me. Good to know it has a name now, at that time I liked to call it the "aseptic futurism"

    The release can be pre-ordered from tomorrow at Sadie's TEKNOPOLICE webshop (it's not listed yet I think). Looks like they made some cool T-shirts too:

    I don't really consider myself a "good" person. In fact, i'm pretty fucked up. But regardless, there's something beautiful about doing "good" to people just for the sake of doing good...Like with no expectations of anything in return....it just feels great to be a blessing to people.

    Toshi apparently deleted almost all Instagram posts related to X and even the ones mentioning hide so it seems the rift is pretty big between them now so I doubt the announcement will be the album. My buddy who asked Pata what was up at a tokyo yankees gig last year got a reply that made it seem like X was going on a break too so : /
