  1. I am so pissed rn because of ZMI ._.
  2. Watching it right now. Shiki from Sick. is so disgusting live when he uses clean vocals.... soooo disgusting. Same with the band before them. EDIT 1. They are disgusting live in general EDIT 2. The keyboard guy uses screams and growls. The bassist does it, too. But Shiki can't do shit, and when he does it - it's pathetic.
  3. Duuude, chill. Everything anyone says is subjective, especially when it comes to music, ok? Sure, you can use your musical education if you have one, or you can write me a huge list with what you deem as proof. Does it change anything? No. I am not a DEG fan, nor am I a fan of Mao. I'm just a dude listening to music. Yes, I find Mao emulating DEG. Yes, DEG emulated other bands, and it's confirmed, too. Everyone is ripping off everyone else. But let's see what we have here: DEG changed drastically over the cource of 20 years - looks, music. influences. They constantly changed. Their inspirations changed. One day they copied Kuroyume, next day they copied Korn, third day they copied Architects (name any other band). So yes, they grew, took everything from all of the inspirations that they ever had, and tried to do something somewhat original that sells. Now let's look at Mao. I am no musical expert, but when I first heard them in 2007, to me he already tried to emulate Kyo, which is fine. In 2009 - still the same thing, it's justthat he tried to emulate Kyo from their different era. 2011, 2013, 2015 - maaaan, just stop it already, we know that your respect/suck up to Kyo, find some other major inspirations, ok? And now he has a different project in 2017, and it's still the same thing. I hope you see what I am trying to say here.
  4. Can't say that I am impressed. They lost some spark and energy their first PV used to have, it seems to me.
  5. Can't say that I really dig the song I guess I will have to listen to it several times. After the first one, there's no single part of the song that I can recall.
  6. Meh. Can't really say that I liked both songs, just typical Dadaroma to me. Can't feel any spark in neither of these songs.
  7. Ahaha Bring more DRAMA!!!!!! We need more drama in 2017!!!!!
  8. Maybe the general audience of VK has something to do with that. I can't say that many fans of any genre are mature in general, but when 90% of your fanbase is 18year old girls (I generilize, but that's not so far from the truth) who are easy to impress and lose their shit altogether ("why don't my fav musicians do anything, hey, I should harass them on Twitter to learn what's happened") - I guess that's the main reason.
  9. It was one of the most disgusting clean vocals I heard in the last year. They are getting softer as well. I guess little fan-girls cannot handle brutal deathcore that well, after all they need some vanilla moments. I like the instrumentals. But the clean vocals just ruined everything, I literally had to pause a couple of times to calm down.
  10. They are definitely one of my biggest guilty pleasures.
  11. I can feel you haven't been around j-rock for years) Yeah, in 2013, I believe.
  12. By copying I mostly meant the fact that he is constantly trying to emulate him. It's not about the end result - I can clearly hear the differences, too. But the style, the melody, the looks, plenty of small details - that's the problem for me. His inspiration is way too obvious. And that's why it's fine when you are just a beginner. But when you are on the scene for more than 10 years, and you are still trying to do exactly the same thing from 2006 (which is emulating your idol in many details) - that's where it kind of points to creative impotence.
  13. Thank god. Not surprised. Jupiter shouldn't even exist in the first place. Hizaki and Teru can concentrate on Versailles, the drummer should just return to Roach - that's what I hope is gonna happen.
  14. I would put it this way. Instrumental-wise this song is nothing like DEG - there's too many metalcore riffs and ideas. On top of that, there's a typical Sadie chorus. But when it comes to vocals - maaan, I can't help but think about DEG. Completely same style, same approach, and, basically, everything. The thing that I'm constantly wondering about - it's ok to copy someone else when you are 22-25 years old and you are just beginning your career. But when you way above 30 years old, you have a 10-year old career in the industry, just why the hell can't you fucking come up with an original look and something that somewhat differentites you from the guy you are constantly trying to emulate...
  15. I really hope for that - I hope that Haruka will bring something interesting to the band, I have no hopes for the bassist and the drummer (their bands don't seem to be famous, and they are lesser known then Naru and Haruka, so I'm afraid they wouldn't have much say in the band's direction)
