    "We've changed.now it's your turn next" "Funny world" "What's up ?" ... Uh oh.
  2. Angelo is really killing it on their latest album. Also, LEDA :DDD

  3. Call me a n00b all you want, but when someone talks about 'mixing' making or breaking an album I am borderline retarded. I like what I like mmkay.

      Maybe I don't have the ear for it, but I've never picked up on the mixing process. Like when a band releases a remastered album, I don't usually notice the differences. Like what you're saying @nomemorial I'd probably need to pay close attention to a song/album/artist I really know and love and contrast that with the new/old versions to really grasp the changes.

      I guess I kind of get what you mean @Peace Heavy mk II regarding the Starwave stuff - Like kind of 'vacuumy'/'underwatery' right?

      @zombieparadiseexactly! And everything is the same level of loudness so there’s no depth to it. Or if the drumming sounds like banging on tin cans, as another example

      @Peace Heavy mk II Ah - I think I'm getting it now. SUICIDE ALI comes to mind as a specific example.

    I am honestly surprised WTD rates so low on this list. It was my first DEG album and figured it would be a favorite for more, as I figured a lot of western people got into them during that time (and the year's proceeding it's release). Maybe it hasn't aged all that well ? Anyway, it's difficult to pick a favorite as I tend to see them in eras: 'Baby' DEG = GAUZE -> KISOU 'Angsty Teenager DEG' = VULGAR -> MARROW OF A BONE 'Adult DEG' = UROBOROS -> ARCHE '2nd Childhood DEG' = The Insulated World My picks in these personal eras would be: KISOU, WTD, ARCHE, and I guess TIW by default lol Interesting to see such a split of opinions from all across the spectrum though. This is truly a band everyone can enjoy in one form or another.

    Call me crazy, but that support bassist looks a LOT like Ryu from Far East Dizain.

    I'm completely fine being in the remaining minority of a dying genre. I would rather find what I like on my own, then have 'them' figure it out for me. I think the whole 2006-2010 resurgence of the genre was more organic than any of the created/algorithmic/lackadaisical trends the post 2010's have given us. This was in part due to social feeds/search terms/content that we were using/sharing/discovering ourselves during this period. These days, the internet has basically been turned against its users, and through very powerful technology, we're shown a barrage of cookie cutter content that the vast majority are entertained by. It doesn't matter if it's good or not, or if some of us aren't interested in it, it's what works. Fortunately, VK is only cookie cutter enough for it's own genre, and too risky for mainstream audiences. If it takes VK following mainstream trends to get popular again, count me out. I am grateful for the old bands and existing bands that keep true to their style without selling out.

    Imagine if that was the full song

    I cannot get over how much I hate this name 'richardland' huhuhuhuhuh
  10. Helix / Endroll sound really good! I'm excited for all ze new toons
  11. Hm, don't actually hate this new DEZERT album.

    Honestly, it took me like 2-3 years of listening to it on and off before I really began to appreciate the nuances between the songs. Before that, I thought all the songs sounded really bland and same-y.
  13. zombieparadise

    Man, Shudder gave birth to VK for me... Before that, I was just a nasty, J-pop loving anime fan. It's not even an understatement that that song single-handedly changed the trajectory of my life hahaha.

    I would say Bell Salem, 深~deep~ Knight mare were their trinity, but the ones at the tail end weren't too bad either

    PLAY DOLLs is my definition of a perfect album. Washed out, hazy sound, full of melancholy, and raw as hell. Love listening to it every winter on those cold, bitter nights.
  16. I bought one for a heidi. live dist. single once; basically the code takes you to a unique URL to DL your songs, and may include some video or additional content as well. I'm in Canada and had no problem DLing the music. PS. Samples sound great! 20+ years and never afraid to experiment!
  17. I could see it. There's a lot of music that's better live for sure.
  18. Haha reading these comments, I almost feel bad for these guys. I'm amazed they've been around for so long—they must have a super loyal fanbase or something.
  19. Back to work and feeling that post-Japan depression 😧 Y'all know what I mean.

      Yup, coping with it right now.

    Amazing news

    I never really knew why Hazuki left, and I don’t know all that much about Ai - or who his support band was for his solo project. But yeah, I definitely appreciate him for keeping his style alive through the years. Most bands would’ve called it quits. Good on him indeed.
