    It's ok! Nice choices, I can't help but notice aicle in there! I used to be a huge fan of aicle back in their heyday haha. Necronomicon is still such a bop~ Oh okay wow, that's really impressive. I started out in late 2006 but didn't get into it like crazy until summer 2007. I think I peaked in VK interest in about 2009 and it was still my main interest until about 2011, but after that I kind of waxed and waned for a bit. But honestly same, it's something that has stuck with me throughout the years regardless! Nice! Check out their album CHEDOARA if you haven't, it's incredible.

    Hey, welcome! Nice to meet you~ What are some of your favorite bands? Have you been into VK that whole time or did you have some out of the loop periods? Idk how familiar you are with more recent bands, but if you haven't checked them out yet definitely listen to DIMLIM. They made me remember how much I love VK when I got back into it not that long ago. Hope you enjoy your time here on MH!

    Oh boy I have SO much to say about this...I'll try to run down my thoughts while watching the PV: -not digging the intro/build up to the chorus, the songwriting seems decent enough but the production feels so? chunky? it's hard to discern anything idk how to describe it -their look is really cool, I like it a lot, but I can't help but hate on the "they have a girl captive" trope, it's so tired -once the chorus hit, I actually really started to like the song. It's a great chorus! -as always, I love Sui's voice :') I'm biased tho, I used to LOVE Megaromania -why is she stripping him -OHHHH RIGHT, I forgot the entire theme of this band is vampires, hence "(Dra)cula." Honestly, I have to give it to them. This is an aesthetic level of vampire-kei I personally haven't seen before lol (idk if this style has been done before or not) but usually vampire-kei is like, Versailles ~roses~ level so this is kind of cool -this is actually pretty legit, the PV seems professional and the editing seems good -lmao nevermind, take a look at those bootleg wings(?) -anyway I would have been obsessed with this in 2009 that's for sure, so it has my stamp of approval. SUI queen slay etc.
  4. I'm so here for this, lol. I really like the otoge-style art they've commissioned, seems like something they spent some money on :'D Honestly I wouldn't even be mad if they didn't even show their faces lmao although I'm sure they will eventually

    I know what you mean, I think many recent bands have been leaning towards one or the other and not as much a combination of the two, which is kinda what I think of when I think VK. So that's cool to hear. I'll definitely check them out a bit further. Thanks for your input

    Just watched their two PVs; I actually really like this band! But that might just be because their PVs look/sound like they could have been released in like 2008-2009 and I'm a slut for that era lmfao. Their look reminds me of Nega or something, I really dig it.

    ^ That was actually adorable. I'm getting real Canzel vibes from them. I watched this video wrong tho because I saw it on my computer instead of a phone lmao but the idea is cute! It's been a while since I heard a band like them; it's nice to see that this type of band is still around. I really like the vocals! And he is wicked adorable, wow ;-; gonna keep an eye out for them for sure!
  8. does anyone else really dislike the trend of putting the lyrics on top of the PV nowadays . it's so distracting

      I like it with xaa-xaa because it's always been their style.

      really? would you say they started or maybe popularized the trend? I was out of the loop for a while so I don't really know when it started

    Hey this is pretty good! They definitely have potential. I know they just formed last month but here's to hoping that they can put themselves out there a little more. The PV has less than 500 views. Good to see they're playing with Kizu soon; that should hopefully help them get out there a bit!
  10. happy birthday! :D

    You can take this as a rumor I guess but it actually happened. Whether the staff person who told us all this was telling the truth or not I don't know, but I don't really see why they would lie lol. This was over 10 years ago so I might have some details wrong but this is what happened to the best of my memory. So at Oni-con in Houston, TX in 2008 Dio -distraught overlord- and Sugar played. On Friday the bands played and on Saturday the bands were supposed to have Q&A panels and the Dio one went great, but the Sugar one kept getting delayed as we all waited outside the room for ages. A friend of mine and I started asking staff what was going on and this staff person for the convention started quietly telling us about the previous night and what was going on that day. Basically the night before, after the concert, the bands got really rowdy drunk and Loki (vocalist of Sugar) started causing all kinds of shenanigans and problems. They said he was flirting with male staff (really awkwardly because they were not reciprocating) and that apparently he forgot what hotel room number was his because he started walking around and knocking on every single hotel room door on that floor trying to figure out which one was his. ... Anyway, as if the staff's control of this situation couldn't get any worse, somehow Loki escaped before they had to do the Q&A and was apparently wandering around Houston and they had yet to find him. The panel ended up getting cancelled and the rest of the band apologized as far as I can remember. Not sure what happened after that. The whole thing was a messsssss.
  12. Is anyone really familiar with Tenten/Taira Kazuhiro's bands and could recommend some of his stuff? I used to really like Chemical Pictures but fell off with following his bands after that. He has a really unique voice that I always liked and I wanted to see if any of his more recent bands were any good but I'm not too sure where to start. Cross posted to music recs thread.

      You didn't really miss much, to be honest. Chemical Pictures (along with KuRt) was his peak imo. Lack-co had a vibe similar to KuRt, in that each song had tons of ideas, which sometimes made them a bit disjointed but at least fun. I can't vouch for his other post-Chemical Pictures projects tho.

      I see. I guess that makes sense. It would be pretty hard to come close to Chemical Pictures for me anyway. They had a really unique vibe. Thanks for your input!

    Extremely excited for this. I will definitely be buying! I'm surprised with their new look but I like it. Ultimately the music is the most important for me with these guys anyway.
