    Shame that the other original members aren't part of the revival, but then again I love Yowmay's voice so much. It's probably Silver~Rose's most defining trait, so I am not entirely disappointed. Hope their sound will continue where they left off in case they release something new.

    Hm, I see a similarity Guess Shuji's a fan of Gene Loves Jezebel Tbh, I haven't listened too much to either cali≠gari or goatbed… not sure how I was sleeping on them for so long. After enjoying Xa-Vat and seeing Shuji posting his really great musical influences on twitter I decided to check out Shuji's other projects. Still diving in, it will take some time…

    This man's cringe-ass behavior is offensive, he really deserves to be cancelled. Jokes aside, I have come to terms with the album never happening years ago. It's best not to give Yoshiki any attention for being a douche, because that's the only thing that keeps him relevant. Also good for Toshi and what's left of the band for throwing in the towel and splitting, if true. It's clear as night and day that Yoshiki doesn't give a fuck about anyone but himself.

    I bought the game right when it came out, yet I hadn't progressed as much as some people who seemed to sink 30-60 hours into it the very first week they got it. I think playing it so much at a time and unlocking most achievements and collecting all the stuff in the museum too fast kills the enjoyment of the game. Back in the old days when you didn't have as many possibilities and as much to do it wasn't unusual to take your time and approach the game slowly, and mostly check in to do your routine stuff and ofc for the events. I usually don't play more than a few hours a day, that way I still have enough to do to keep me occupied with the game for the next two years, because that's the time span nintendo announced online updates for. There is indeed a lot of hype atm and sadly also a lot of drama. Personally I don't care about what others do and wether or not they do time travel. I don't really watch others playing the game, unless I need tips for a specific thing, like an event. I know for myself that I don't want to rush it and slowly build my progress until I get really bored with it, hopefully in a few years.

    Ok guys, sorry, I have to retract my statement from before about society getting better. Humanity truly is stupid. Are we doomed after all?

    There's also https://oldvrock.blogspot.com/ for more oldschool VK (not necessarily general japanese rock, but many of the bands there are 90s softvi or melodic VK, so it could be of interest).

    Eh, I won't get into this, I already regret writing my post. I'd argue that's not true for everyone or every era. Many early societies were built on slavery like Babylonia or Greece and they came up with their own stupid reasons why it was excusable. Are we to believe people who were literally raised and conditioned to think it was ok from birth to be really aware that their doings were terrible? But whatever. Sorry for bringing this up.

    Possible controversial opinion incoming, but… I feel that renaming cities and places and removing statues of people we have retrospectively deemed to be "problematic" is going to hurt our progression as a society more than it will do good. We are essentially censoring history to prevent us from facing the past mistakes of our ancestors, just because some people may be upset and "triggered" by it. How the hell will future generations learn to take a critical view of their past and history and use that knowledge to prevent great atrocities from happening again? Yeah, sure they can read about it in their history books, but if we rewrite them too to fit into the narrative of everything being simply black and white, then it's bad… Imo it's important for people to know that it took humanity a long time to get where we are today and that we have improved a lot in just a century. I don't think that the historical revisionism of painting anyone who wasn't already as progressive as our society is today as evil is such a good, long-lasting lesson… it's important to know that it wasn't just famous dudes like Columbus were racist, but society as a whole was - and because we have thankfully improved enough we can point it out and talk about why it was bad. And being able to recognize that even supposedly "good" people who achieved great things for humanity can be shit people or be misguided. Also, the same people who make a fuss about this stuff will be part of the very same generation that will be criticized for being barbaric, problematic and not progressive enough in the future. Because that's usually how it goes - people in the future will look back at those that came before and talk about how shit they were. Well, that is if we don't fuck up and society descends into a complete regression. Edit: also sorry if this is too political… or if maybe I come over like some reactonary. That's not my intention and I don't want to stirr things up here, just feel like giving my own 2 cents about it. Obviously I don't condone any past crimes against humanity, I just feel the way we deal with them and our past atm isn't very ideal… y'all allowed to disagree. I'm posting this here especially since it's the only place where one doesn't usually get attacked for having an opinion.

    2020 really is such a shit year… So many of my fav musicians have died this year, it's crazy. RIP You.

    Let's be real: if there is one species that excels in hating and tormenting its very own kind, it's humans. Just take a look into recorded history to see how shitty we were, regardless where we were from. The only positive thing is that we have had a very strong progression in terms of social morales in the last century, though it's still very much restricted to certain countries and regions. That said, despite all the crazy shit going on atm, I am still happy to live now and not in the 1700s when I would have prob been tortured to death bc of some superstitious belief about witchcraft.

    I am glad more bands are starting to embrace digital sales and share their music online via streaming. Also this band has me intrigued. I am normally not a fan of VK bands of this type, but I kinda like their style.

    necroing this thread because I want to share my itunes purchases, however I lost my mac version of itms scrubber when I transitioned from my old Macbook to a new one and I can't find a working dl link 😕 If anyone has it and also can help me updating it I'd be thankful…

    The people who were calling that the next fad to replace the Metalcore trend in VK would be KPOP and soundcloud music were right. Guess that makes 8P-SB true pioneers, lol. I know I am ranting and whining a lot about it that it's insufferable, but still… I am very bothered by the direction VK has taken in the last ten years. I know rock music has lost it's mainstream popularity and kids these days aren't rebelling by listening to edgy guitar based music, but by jamming to Billie Eilish and Lil Peep and whoever they are. But I feel VK's identitiy is so strongly tied to rock, even the stuff that was quite electronic (like Schwarz Stein) reflected it through its songwriting and -structure. That kinda changed with the advent of first western Metalcore copycats (which imo deprived VK of its unique blend of sound of post-punk and Heavy Metal) and then the introduction of annoying dance and electronic beats and shitty "synths". Now we reached the point where stuff like is so far removed from what VK was. Can't say if it's good or bad, it's evolving after all and that can't be stopped… but I am worried that VK, which is already meaningless and super niche in japan, will just completely dissolve and assimilate into this big pot of "hip" pop and microgenre stuff. Not sure if I make sense, it's a bit tricky to express what irks me.
  15. I almost forgot how good Lubis Cadir and early 12012 were
     

     

    Early 00s was def a good time for Matina/UCP bands.

      @Disposable indeed it is! Some of my biggest favs were from that period. It's such a shame that most bands that had their success through that label went to shit once they went major (*cough' 12012, Vidoll…).
