    Hey! I'm new to the forum! Stumbled across the site a couple days ago, and I wanted to know if other people felt the same way or noticed this too. (PLEASE, link me to the thread if this topic already exists!) Has anyone else noticed the increasing usage of a harpsichord-like sounds in J-rock/V. Kei songs? If possible, it would be great if we could pin point the exact time when this trend started arising. The first time I really noticed it being used a lot was in songs by Royz, but below I'll link some quick examples of what I mean. Sick2 - CRAZY TOKYO (1:33) Royz - Egoist (1:18) (more recently) Razor - Knot Invisible (1:15) Was there a specific group that started using this sound a lot in their music and it branched out from there, or am I just over-analyzing things..
  2. ~Update 26.06.2015~ I have re-organized our sales-thread. You can now find everything on eBay: eBay-Link We have still chekis left from MEJIBRAY, Nocturnal Bloodlust, GALEYD, D=OUT, NEGA, Lycaon, Royz and many more. Just take a look. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
  3. Hello Monochrome fellows~ ヾ(。・ω・。) As I sorted through my VK collection, I came to realize that I way too much VK goodies, which have been sitting on my shelf for years. To make space for newer VK stuff, I've decided to sell some items, so they can go to a new home where they won't be lying on the shelf being ignored, lol. For now, this list mainly includes goodies. More will be added later on. This is my first time selling items online, so please bear with me as it will take me a bit to learn shipping rates, prices, and such. Apologies in advance. Here are some notes: - I ship from the U.K. - I only accept payments through PayPal. - All prices will be listed in UK pounds. - Prices do not include shipping rates. - Flyers/smaller magazines/bookmarks will be free with any purchase if requested. Please let me know if you prefer any particular item. These will be on a first come, first serve basis. - I bought some items from second-hand stores, but I've never used them myself. I will mark which items are bought from these stores. (They literally sat on my shelf unused, lol.) - Pictures are inside of the spoiler tag. (I apologize for the fuzzy/unclear pictures. My camera wasn't cooperating with me.) Please let me know if you're interested in anything ^^ If you want extra pictures or have any questions, then please don't hesitate to ask! D=OUT Kabuki Disco Poster (x3) - £7 (each one) - I obtained these posters while in Japan when D=OUT was promoting their Kabuki Disco album. It will be tightly wrapped and unopened. There are little bends at the corners, but nothing noticeable to the overall quality of the poster. The picture below will show what it looks like (minus the signatures and lamination). Kiryu Shuka Ensen Photoset (x1) - £10 (whole set) - These photos came as extras from Brand-X when I ordered the album a long time ago. I'd prefer to sell this as a whole set. Royz Concert Glowstick - £5 - I bought this when I attended one of Royz's concerts. The item has only been used once. It comes with batteries and still lights up a bright neon green. When shipped out, I will cover it in bubble wrap. SCREW Chekis - £10 (each one) - These are some of the SCREW chekis I've collected. If I'm not mistaken, I bought most [if not all] of these at SCREW's 7th anniversary live and were only available then. (Note: I'll be posting more later chekis and photocards. If there's any particular member you want, then let me know and I can check to see if it's available for sale.) Biosphia Cheki Booklet - £6 - I bought this at their Osaka Muse live (5th May 2013). It comes with a handwritten note of which live it was sold at on the inside (in one of the cheki slips). Bookmarks - N/A - If making a purchase, these can be added to the order with no extra charge if requested. Reversion Fruits pin and guitar [Two Man Live - vistlip & baroque] - £4 This was purchased from baroque's and vistlip's two man live. It contains a pin and a guitar pick. The items are not sold separately. Gazette pen & sticker - £3 - I bought this from a second-hand store, but I've never used the item and has been in the same condition since I bought it. The items are not sold separately. Sadie Undead small mirror - £3 - I bought this from a second-hand store, but I've never used the item and has been in the same condition since I bought it. Luna Sea iPhone 5 case - £10 - The item was only open once to look at. It has never been used before and is still in original package. Flyers/Magazine(s) If making a purchase, these can be added to the order with no extra charge if requested.
  4. Similar to what Ains has done with their bands (sort-of), B.P.RECORDS bands (Royz, コドモドラゴン (Codomo Dragon), 己龍 (Kiryu)) have collaborated to form 3 different "if-bands", and all 3 of their songs (1 for each band) has been available for download on the label's smartphone site, *accessible by fanclub members only...

    Hello dear monochrome heaven community I'm a Japanese studies student and I am planning to write my seminary paper about Visual Kei this semester. To be concrete, I would like to analyze modern Visual kei lyrics (language and contents) and thought about analyzing them according to subgenres and take e.g 5 bands per sub-genre. Now my problem is that there are so many especially recent bands where I don't know which subgenre they belong to and also, there are so many subgenres and everyone writes about them a bit differently. The ones I found out in a Japanese master thesis and in the internet are: 1) Kote-kei (90's bands, so I probably won't need that one as I'm focusing on modern VK) 2) Oshare-kei (I guess the samples explain it) An Cafe, LM.C, SuG, Kra 3) Koteosu-kei (mix of Kote kei and oshare kei) Bands: the Gazette, Nightmare 4) Sofubi-kei (natural make-up, softer music that is catchy and easy to listen to) Alice Nine, Vivid, SID (late era) 5) O-tanbi-kei (Influenced by the renaissance in Europe) Versailles, Misaruka, D, Kaya 6) O-warai-kei (I guess the examples explain what this subgenre is like) Golden Bomber, this is a Pen 7) Wafuu-kei (costumes & setting traditionally Japanese, also using typically Japanese instruments) Kagrra, Kiryu, Zin, Memento Mori, Orochi 8 ) Angura kei (also traditional Japanese setting& costume but usually very dark) MUCC, cali gari, guruguru eigakan, Plastic tree, heidi, Waggakki band sub-sub genres: misshitsu-kei, chikashitsu-kei, shironuri kei, eroguro kei, showa kayou kei 9) Kirakira/host-kei The Sherry 10) Nagoya-kei Avel Cain, Deathgaze So if anyone knows any more bands for one of these subgenres it would be very helpful to me Mainly bands formed after 2000~ would be great as I want to focus on modern Visual Kei. Also, as I mentioned, there are some bands I would really incorporate into my paper but I'm not sure to which subgenre I could add them. Dadaroma, Scapegoat, Mejibray, Killaneth, Balalaika, Grieva, DIO, Kuroyuri to kage etc- which subgenre might darker bands like this belong to? Or recent bands like Clowd, Belle, Gigamous, Chanty, Staa-ku, Pentagon, Sibile-bashir (probably o-warai-kei though) or Anfiel (maybe kirakira kei?)- I have no idea where I could add these ones. Or R-shitei, Royz, the Raid, Sick2, Purple Stone, Screw, Black Line, the Lotus, Fest Vanqueur, Neverland, Gossip, Blaive, Initial L/Lycaon, HERO, Astaria, BORN, Diaura, ViV etc etc So if anyone knows something more about one of these subgenres, or just knows any band to add to one of these (doesn't have to be one of the ones I mentioned) or could guess where one of the band mentioned above might belong to- any little comment would be helpful I hope I posted this in the right category of the forum, please tell me if not or if a post like this is unapproprite (>///<) Thank you very much in advance

    3.9 out of 5 This is my first purchase from Royz and I wasn't too disapointed but not too amazed. 1. Supernova Despite listening to the first track multiple times, I will admit it's good but my first instinct was tha they may be trying something new or back to their roots but it sounds too predictable/generic almost. I thought the song would be at a faster pace for some reason with viewing commercials and a preview PV before the release date. Overall it's good. Somewhat energized 2. ALIVE Starts off with a slow startup then drumming kicks in followed by good guitar riffs I'll say. I mainly liked the lyrics from the song, pretty good tempo I'll add. There's not much to say about this song minus the vocal version beats the instrumental version from my pov. 3. twilight memory I was expecting this track to be a slow melody song with some sadness incorporated into it due to the title. Threw me off a bit nonetheless, a lot of guitar riffs within the right ear, the bass was on a pretty good level. Not to where you couldn't hear it or it was too overpowered. Despite not knowing the lyrics, I suspect this song is more of a mid tone not being focused on sadness or happiness. To add the instrumental or??? Overall, the single gets a decent, 3.9 out of 5. I really like the instrumental tracks ^^

    Hey there. I've got 2 songs from Youtube that I dunno how to tag on last.fm because I dunno the correct band names. If you could help me with these, I'd be grateful. Here's the 1st one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K87eTwIJoiw I suppose it's an old school band called BALA★NCE, right ? But I've never heard of a VK band with this name nor can I find any info of any band called BALANCE either. Looking for the name of the song didn't help me either. so I dunno. The 2nd is from a random band I found on Youtube too. Looks like the original video has been deleted, so I've reuploaded it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3NkMD82aL4 There's even a picture of the band, which I suppose is a session band, with their names and all, but I've never found anything about them. And the name of the song was like that when I got it, so I have no idea of how should I tag it. I've noticed the tranny in the left side of the pic looks a lot like Kuina from Royz back when he was in his previous band, so that might be him before he got all the piercings, but I'm not sure.
  15. Hey, because I'm moving in a few weeks and I'm tired of carrying stuff, I don't pay attention to any longer. So I'm slowly starting to sell stuff. I'll keep updating the list.

    A very good release, best album they have put out so far (This is their second album LOL) This album was coming in with expectations I had from their past 3 singles. The title tracks didn't attract me as much like Starry Heaven and NOAH, but INNOCENCE was really badass. The only thing exciting me was the thought of getting more songs like the final track on the Starry Heaven single or SHADOWS from INNOCENCE. The preview for Tears got me a little down cause it sounded like they were doing some poppy ballad type song, but, it wasn't entirely that and I ended up loving it. The one thing I have always loved about Royz, besides the crazy melodies that are almost unexpected in most songs, is Subaru's voice. It has a sort of soothing lullaby to it and the fact that he can growl makes him and the band a lot more interesting. Kind of like with SuG and Howling Magic, once you heard Takeru growl, you kind of felt like: "Holy shit, maybe this might start getting good" Royz was already good but they just got better. This album brought forth some really amazing songs, and unlike their first album, I don't find myself skipping songs to find the good ones and listen to the rest later. アルカロイド was the first step towards more INNOCENCE type songs, 糜楼 was their next heavy sided song, claiming the spot as my Favorite song of this album, followed up by FlashBack which to me resembled SHADOWS a lot. We got some great ballads such as アテナ with such a calming slow acoustic melody in the melody, and then you get an uplifting, cheesy if I might add, song right after which gains the spot as my least favorite song. Don't be mislead though, it's still good, it's just not my cup of tea. Why the hell didn't I have 恋花火 on my iPod beforehand? I thought I had their whole disco, amazing song. Very nice fast tempo that gets me energized. The final song Aerial Cord gave me some hope with a name that awesome. I was hoping for a fast song but it was more in the mid-tempo style of songs. That's not a problem here. Sorry if my reviews aren't as astounding as Zess but my hope is that some people read my reviews on these amazing bands and decide to give them a try.
