    Well, it doesn't sound that bad... but I prefer their old tracks. Kinda too much pop-rock for me
  2. Yuri

    YES! I'm wondering if songs are going to be mostly instrumental like on Northern Hell Song

    I feel like they aren't a doujin band anymore. Or at least their schedule is less dependent on doujin events. Still, happy to hear about new single =)

    Marry me please
  5. It's good to have a list TODO for some next days (at least it works for me). But not a rigorous one but more like flexible plan. You may have those days where you just write everything gibberish and it may be very demotivating. During this time I would more suggest you to read more about subject or something around it. Don't forget about breaks - they are very crucial. For example try to write something for 30 minutes, then do a break for 15-30 minutes, write for 40 mins, and over and over again slowly increasing time you spend on your work and adjusting your breaktime. Personally when I study I love switching from physics to chemistry and then to maths. It's really effective for me instead of hanging over chemistry all the day. But I think it won't help there. I think you should be able to do one page in one day, one and half page in second day (I meant here you should be able to increase your progress slowly day by day). You shouldn't forget about thinking about things and go to bed with them. If you are worried you won't remember them in next day - write it down. Have a notebook (or smartphone) somewhere under your bed or somewhere else. If you play video games much, I suggest you uninstall them unless they don't distract you. All of them. Even mobile games. If you go by bus/by tram somewhere it's a good time to think of stuff as well. When I used to do long reports on labs sometimes contacting with other people around the world helps as well. But as I mentioned that in video games part, unless Facebook/Twitter/MV don't distract you. And PLEASE, don't stay late hours hanging over your work. It's not effective at all. Don't forget about your bedtime, sleeping is important. EDIT2: Forgot to mention about rewarding yourself after reaching your daily milestones. Eat something what you love, play the game for some hours which you love or do whatever makes you feel better and happier. Staying in good mod during writing helps a lot.

  7. Howdy, I really like your avatar! It reminds me a bit of Hatsune Miku's 結ンデ開イテ羅刹ト骸 tho =)

      Hey, thanks! It's from a shirt I got in Harajuku ^^

  8. Have you ever had that feeling that you'd want to check new albums out or just try new bands out but you don't have free time for that? I used to had that for 5 years I think. It was caused mostly by school and pretty bad Internet connections (dorms etc) and FINALLY, after those years I'm able to check "new releases" out from 2012 or even older. omg I'm so excited.

    Well, I really understand that artists think ripping their CD doesn't help them at all because they "loose" money but that's not really true. I couldn't tell if any album is good judging only by promoting songs or cover. If album is really good it should be able to defend itself and appear to listener enough to make him/her buy it later on or support band in other ways (don't forget about t-shirts, accessories or just attending to concerts). I also think that music industry is a really difficult branch to live from. Specially VK, which is... pretty underground. Comparing to other artists, which are more mainstream or just commercial, they have pretty small fanbase. A typical person really rarely buys real CD or get access to any kind of streaming (because most of them listen to the radio and then download single songs). So when it comes to such a small community it's more likely that few people will buy anything, what means less money for artists. And if they want to become more popular, piracy will help them, paradoxically.

    For more than 10 years I was always around metal/rock/punk genre. Of course I started from commercial bands (like everybody I think), slowly finding which subgenres are the best for me. I used to jump on electro (electro house, DnB mostly) and pop rhythms from time to time, but that was for not more than 1 month. When I meet friends who were into Japanese music, my journey with VK, j-rock was easier than I think most of the people. Since then I have never came back to every other music than Asian. I remember I used to follow pretty nice blog about Asian metal and rock scene, which helped me a lot with finding some great bands. I have never used Youtube to look for new bands, maybe because its' proposals were always bad. I was listening to my friends' suggestions as well with music... and there I should specify which friends I was listening to. Not everybody's taste was appealing to me and I was pretty sceptic about "their" bands. But I was taking all samples which were about melodic death/power/speed/trash/gothic/symphonic metal and post-hardcore. AND IT HAD TO BE ASIAN. If not, most of the time I didn't like it. For some reason when I was looking for something cool I couldn't find anything. When this nice blog disappeared I was pretty much lost about any new bands. But that time I was hyped about Vocaloids, so I was listening to almost every genre. After and during "Vocaloids wave" I was following pretty much Doujin music. Most of the metal bands in 2010-2014 I liked very much, right now I feel like that scene is dead a bit. I haven't tried anything but metal and rock. Still don't know why. In last years I started to find new bands on my own, mostly because I have more free time. My music taste didn't change a lot, only expanded with progressive metal. And I'm more open to raw punk. I became to be more open to nonAsian music but not like I'm the biggest fan of BMTH, holy no! But I'm not off-putted when somebody listens to them at least.
