    I like the previews so far, but the vocal melodies kinda sound... the same.
  2. Yup. Kurona (who was the vocalist) and Hibiki (AKA Daisuke Kaminaga, who later left) both used to play in CrowXClass, as well as Heaven's Dust. The Taiko drummer of CrowXClass, Saku (Hidemasa Hanahara) is originally from a group with his brother called Mugen, and they're still active. All the other members have their own stuff. I believe the Shamisen player, Kanade (Michiaki Shirata), did the Shamisen for the Naruto Shippuden sountrack (who Kurona's brother did the Taiko for). Mikage (Masaki Nakamura), the Shakuhachi Player who didn't leave, did some stuff for the Kantai Collection soundtrack, and Shin Ichikawa (Shion, Koto player) did something with one of the Yoshida brothers. All of them, minus Saku, were in a group called Zangetsu, which was basically just a traditional instrument group. Sadly, in like 2016, CrowXClass had a few performances... but then just stopped and for a while, their website was down (but now is back)
  3. 14 year old me would have liked this. It's not the worst song in the world, but I miss old DEZERT
  4. So Tsubasa is now deciding to be the next Meguru (Panic Channel vocalist)?
  5. Because that's totally going to solve Japan's declining population problem!!
  6. Those outfits look like traditional Manchu tunics, but ugly
  7. Happy Birthday

    It probably was. What record label was this band associated with? I wonder if probably the same staff filmed it. EDIT: Just realised it's Vidoll. Knowing Vidoll was on Matina, they probably had the same video staff and all, since Eternal Records was a sublabel of Matina.
  9. Happy Birthday!

  10. I seriously wish AIKA didn't retire from the Vkei scene after Triggah. Does anyone know what he's even doing now? Last I heard, he still attended events relating to Dual Core Sound, but I believe Dual Core Sound isn't around anymore

      probably farming avocados

  11. The melody in the whole thing kinda gives off Traditional Japanese vibes. God I hope this band will use Japanese Instruments like Memento Mori did
  12. IIII-Ligro was a pretty good shred-kei band lead by vocalist Hinata. They tried reviving recently, but disbanded again.
  13. What the hell is that production? That guitar tone is lacking. No mids, all the gain, only good for chugging metallica riffs in your bedroom on a practice amp type tone.

    Guruguru Eigakan takes a lot of influence from Enka and Ryukoka, and it shows in their music. For one, 90% of the bands songs make use of the Hirajoshi scale. The Hirajoshi scale is a scale used in Japanese music that mainly started for the Shamisen, after it was brought from Okinawa. Safe to say, this scale pretty much defines Japanese music. By the middle of the Edo Period, it was everywhere. In the key of G, the notes are G, A, Bb, D, Eb. Guruguru Eigakan specifically fashions their music off of Enka and Ryukoka. Ryukoka is essentially traditional Japanese music played on western instruments like guitar and accordion,, popular in the 1900's. Enka is essentially a more stylised offshoot of Ryukoka. At it's core, it's mostly just Hirajoshi scale music. Amano, vocal wise, seems to really fashion himself off of Haruo Oka. Haruo Oka was one of the first popular singers from Japan, mainly being popular in the 30's and 40's. Oka's vocal style is pretty typical of Japanese singers at the time, as the modern Enka vocal style hadn't really been fully developed yet. Amano also plays guitar, and guitar-wise, he really seems to take influence from Yoshio Tabata, another famous Ryukoka musician from the 1930's. Both he and Haruo Oka are considered some of the most influential Enka and Ryukoka artists of their time. And for reference, here's a Guruguru Eigakan PV
  15. That last song sounds cool as shit. Man I am totally feeling this. Edit: I just realised they're two different parts of the same song.
