    They said they did it on purpose. Like a lot of people were like 'wtf is this' to their usagi thing but they did it with the new single in mind. rebirth?? or something like that. I forget the word/kanji they used (I wasn't 100% paying attention lol), but they def talked about it tonight and it was definitely planned.
  2. idk where to post this (seeing as how i'm prob the only one on MH who gave a fuck about TRA TRA TRA)  but i need to post this somewhere


    I'm so so so so glad that Omi is still making music. I can totally see both of these songs being on TRA's album. I wish I could hear Ryo sing them. I've listened to Omi's other music too (it's on iTunes) and it makes me so sad that they didn't release any of those songs as TRA.


    On a personal note, it's even more heart-wrenching for me considering the recent news with Hiroki (I'm Hiroki gya -_-) so I see Omi's stuff and think of TRA which also makes me think of Hiroki and then all of the conflicting feelings. Granted, if Hiroki was doing illegal shit, I'm glad he got caught when he was with Ageha rather than when he was with TRA. I think I'd def be more pissed if it had happened during TRA.


    In any case. I fucking love Omi's music <333333 and I'm so glad he's still making the same type of music. I hope he gets more attention!!

      I really enjoy the latter end of that 耳鳴り preview. It seems like he covers all bases here https://big-up.style/musics/405451 through "Big Up!", so hopefully it's digitally released as well.

      @colorful人生 he's doing his best i think! his first real live is on Sunday so I'm hoping he'll announce more about it after that. hopefully he'll have more digital releases!

      sounds pretty good indeed! I admit that coming from nil delete heads I expected more from TRA in general, but they sure had some pretty kickass tunes! カルラの憂鬱 is still rockin on my daily rotation


      I hope he forms a new band someday

  3. No. It's not related to Ageha. The group is made of unrelated people (though I think some of the group are other ex-bandmen)
  4. I've done some digging and from what I've gathered, it seems that he was involved in some kind of scam. https://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/videonews/fnn?a=20191115-00427315-fnn-soci Omi (ex. TRA TRA TRA) has also tweeted about it

    lololol its okay, I'm literally focused on the drummer and bassist for now. as long as you don't super, super hate them I'm pretty happy lololol
  6. echo

    Thanks for the info! I don't really keep tabs on Nightbare (I literally don't know anything about them lolol), so idk the details, but I'm pretty impressed that a drummer can maintain such a loyal fanbase! Drummers usually have like NO fans lol
  7. echo

    yay! I'm glad you think this band is good news! I don't know anything about Guts and Death or LSN >< I did a quick search and it seems like there's not much info about them on MH? I did a quick search and it seems even the GnD OHP doesn't offer much info lol if anyone has a source, I can try my hand at translating!
  8. echo

    lol I've only ever heard him live (literally heard him for the first time tonight) and he seemed okay! I think a lot of VK vocalists actually sound much better live. Maybe you'll like him more in future, more polished releases of their songs! If not, hopefully you can get past his vocals and enjoy the music for what is >< no clue what you're talking about (nor do I really care lolol) but thanks for the info! I'll go do some research b(^▽^)d
  9. echo

    Musicians change all the time, yes, but it's a different story if said musician is the vocalist (literally the face of the band). It's a lot more difficult to keep a band going once you lose a vocalist (but again, not sure if he's actually leaving LSN... I have literally never heard of them. Can anyone shed some light? Perhaps a different topic is necessary for this discussion?) In any case, this is borderline becoming off-topic lol. Anyone else have thoughts on this new band? Personally, I am pretty excited, despite their apparent copy/classic-rock style XD
  10. echo

    Not sure lol I just checked LSN's OHP and it looks like they don't have anything in their schedule after 10/14. Maybe he's switching over and LSN will stop?
  11. I honestly don't understand why people bother to post in a topic if they "aren't interested" 

    If you're not interested then why waste any of your precious time saying so? lolol 


    also, I really don't get the whole "sounds just like all the other (insert genre) bands"

    um.. if it things didn't sound at least a little similar, genres literally wouldn't exist?? derp.

    If you like abare and say "this kira band sounds like all the other kira bands" then well, yes of course they do.... cos you don't like kira?? so of course it sounds the same to you. You literally don't have the ear to appreciate nice melodies. Likewise, if you only listen to kira, then of course all abare will sound the same to you... similarly, if you don't like the "new stuff" you prob only like the "old stuff." If you don't like the "old stuff," you probably only like the "new stuff."

    I mean, literally ALL genres of rock sounded the same to me before I actually started listening to it so............????????


    BUT yeah idk. maybe that's just me ( ´_ゝ`)

    1. colorful人生


      It gets the cynics' rocks off. If you go through said individuals' comment history it becomes pretty apparent that they've changed over time. Some people just look at vk w/ such objectivity b/c their favs define the genre for them. 

    2. Miku70


      I agree with you. If a band  don't interest me, if see elsewhere ☺️.


      But "old stuff" is not likely good , because we growned with and  their judgement is biased. So the "new stuff" gave a chance , because maybe in the future or now are interessing.


    3. Zeus


      opinions on old stuff is inherently biased because we tend to not talk about the stuff that sucked back in the day. but people that talk smack about new stuff will always exist, and telling them to go elsewhere isn't productive once you realize that those in love with 2008 visual kei (for example) won't find what they are looking for in 2018. they will be just as unhappy "there" as they will be "here".

      ngl i don't listen to vk nearly as heavy as i used to and what i listen to most of the time are bands people don't really remember or listen to anymore. and as time passes, i have less and less people to introduce my favorite things to, and less and less people willing to talk about the same songs five, ten, fifteen years later. but i try my hardest to give new stuff a chance too and sometimes i am surprised. there's actually a bit more diversity now than five or ten years ago.

  14. echo

    oh! was there a demo version of the song? I didn't know that! but yeah, Keiya is definitely amazing live!! and idk how he sings like that while he dances like wtf?? lol
  15. echo

    I'm actually a little disappointed that he became an official member. I've seen them a few times with him as support and his vocals don't really match their music and he can't quite hit the notes like their original vocalist could. I wonder if this will also mark a shift in their sound ><
