  2. Girugamesh and Sel'm hit me hard. These were bands that were around and putting out great material when I was first getting in to VK, and they were some of the very few that were still remaining. They felt kind of like nails in the coffin.
  3. Quick thoughts of a grumpy old man. Scale: Yeah Hmm Meh Ugh "天上天下" by ARCHEMI. It felt like the song had no meat to it. I normally appreciate a traditional Japanese flavor to my VK, but here is just felt like an attempt to sprinkle some flavor on top of something that was really bland. I guess that saved it from be a "ugh" on my scale though. "鮮やかな矛盾" by NoGoD I've been off of the NoGod train for a while now. After a bunch of mediocre releases, I had a hard time caring about following them. While I did enjoy this track, I kind of feel like it also feels a bit like more of the same. Does make me a bit curious to jump back in though. "昏睡" by SCAPEGOAT Some parts reminded me of mid 00's numetal inspired VK and the chorus felt reminiscent of Cocklobin, which are two things I would mark as positives. Production sounded shit, but I am hoping that there was just same major compression involved on the youtube upload. "青年ナイフ" by ニトロデイ Sounded like I was listening to it with cotton stuffed in to my ears. Also, there is something about the way the vocalist pronounces things that I just can't stand. "Sorry, I Am Not" by SHE TALKS SILENCE It felt like this song was trying to go somewhere but it never quite reached its destination. In a crude way of putting it, I feel like this song blue balled me. "雨” by 游彩 I feel like there is a lot of promise here that isn't realized. I feel like a bit more passion and dynamics in this song could have helped pushed it over the top. I think this song could be a lot of fun live as I think perhaps part of the problem is that it is over produced. "虚言癖" by DAMY Been a while since I've heard a song in this style from a band that I didn't know that was actually memorable. This is a song that gets its life from lots of small details - little vocal flairs or riff changes that I wasn't expecting. Going to be checking this band out more in the future. "⚪︎と×" by ザアザア I don't think I've ever quite liked Xaa-xaa as much as the rest of the community has, but this song is dope. The the vocals are incredibly emotive without playing things too far in to melodrama. It's also been a while since I've enjoyed a song with a guitar solo. "burst" by Zill Not sure if I can get behind the vocals - like, there is some points where I really enjoy them, but others where I feel like they are just too rough. Instrumentally the song is mostly solid, but like the vocals, also has some rough points (like the chorus imo). "Dystopia -Vanishing Point-" by Boris Ive always been a fan of Boris's drone/doom work, but even I feel like this track takes perhaps a bit too long to get to its main point. Even when the song hits full stride, I don't find it quite as enjoyable as some of their work in this genre in the past. I find it hard to put in to words, but this one really left me wanting more. Not to say that I dislike this track, which isn't the case....more that it was disappointing. Also, man, do I ever hate how this song ends. "声飛行" by Gutevolk This is one of those songs that I don't really enjoy all that much, but I totally see the appeal of even if it isn't for me. Wow, lot's of good VK tracks! What year is it? XD
  4. I watched about as much as I could over the course of the week. I wanted to actually go this year since it is only 5 hours from where I live, but work and other obligations screwed with that. Super Panga World was nuts and super fun. Some of my other favorite runs that I watched were Super Monkey Ball and Kingdom Hearts II. I'm going to try and watch some of the ones that I missed over the next week or two.
  5. That's enough internet for today...
  6. Whelp this for sure tells me that I am not going to need to make an effort to watch this.
  7. Quick thoughts of a grumpy old man. Scale: Yeah Hmm Meh Ugh "vainglory" by MEIDARA No major sins (other than that synth violin in the background, but it is pretty subtle), but feels utterly forgettable. "蜉蝣の夢" by FIXER Though this track had a little bit of "I've already heard this before" syndrome going on with it, it was still pretty solid. "Omelas" by JILUKA I liked the chorus, but otherwise this feels like "been there, done that" metalcore. "ドラマチックな恋心" by SAVAGE Those vocals are abysmal. "セクシーホモサピエンス" by クウチュウ戦 (Koochewsen) I feel like I should like this, but the vocals just came off as annoying. Which kind of sucks, as the instrumentals were solid. "ラビリンス" by MONDO GROSSO featuring 満島ひかり The beat felt a little stale, but overall I enjoyed the mood. "ガブリエル" by Yeti Vocalist fits this style well, still doesn't make this song interesting though. "See Inside" by PASSing truth DRIVE This song sounds like it is out of phase. Instant fail for the terrible production that makes my head feel like it is stuck in an echo chamber or something. "雨中遊泳" by Plastic Tree Blocked, too lazy to view via proxy lol "無重力" by Yeti The heavy parts are awesome. The transition nearly ruins this song. The production also kind of sucks. "最近じゃデパートのオリジナルソングにすら 幸せを感じるんだ" by The Mirraz This band has never clicked for me. This changes nothing there. "あましずくとマクガフィン" by グリモア (GRIMOIRE) Not bad by any means, actually pretty solid, but didn't really draw me in either. I should probably like this more than I do. "Bad Blood" by Acid Black Cherry This was not what I was expecting. Perhaps a bit too heavy on the bleep-bloops, but an interesting mashup of sounds. "Sans Toi Mamie" by Ataru Nakamura Sorry, what was that? I feel asleep.
