Might as well add JILUKA ahead of their new mini album release next week...

 

JILUKA are an intriguing oddball quartet with a ridiculous amount of talent and one of only a handful of visual kei bands to have featured in Young Guitar Magazine.

 

With guitar-head Sena at the helm, vocalist Ricko with a bottomless pit of lung capacity, bassist Boogie who likes to boogie and drummer Zyean blasting his way to 300 bpm completing the lineup, they draw their inspiration from an assortment of influences from classical music to heavy metal - conceptualizing heaviness with melodic lines.

 

Zyean who joined the band in 2015, lists black metal, brutal death metal, technical death metal and power metal as his go-to subgenres; with Mayhem, Darkthrone, Dimmu Borgir, Meshuggah, Cryptopsy, Gamma Ray and Sonata Arctica among some of his favorite bands. And following in the footsteps of senpais like Fumiya from Galneryus, Kouki Akita from GAUNTLET, and Shuji from Gyze, it’s easy to hear this energy dictate the rhythm of current JILUKA.

 

Despite their short years in the industry, JILUKA comes across as a band serious about their music – making fast progress with their hard-earned skills and backed by the producers of DELUHI and Galeyd. Although admittedly JILUKA's earlier works greatly borrowed from Deluhi, they’ve really come into their own in recent times. It will be interesting to see how they'll mature and grow.

I love Jiluka. I like everything they've put out so far and they're definitely one of my favorite bands to see live. The guys are also all really funny and talented, especially Sena. Not only does he write the lyrics and compose all of Jiluka's music by himself, he's only been playing guitar for 5 or 6 years. I really admire his drive and dedication.

Unfortunately they still only have a small following in Japan so I really hope they can continue grow.

 

Super pumped for the new release. It sounds like they will be selling the mini album ahead of the release date at the instore events tomorrow.

never heard of them before but then I saw them for the first time in 2015 on DOAKs first live and fell in love with them during their first song (it was B.A.L.U.S)

sadly I only could see them twice, but their lives were full of energy and I had so much fun!

They're one of my favorite (active) artists rn

Jiluka is hands down one of my most favorite bands currently in the VK scene. They're all really talented and it's amazing how each song is well composed. With each release they get better and better and I'm really excited for their upcoming mini. I know it's going to be amazing!

I’ve just unearthed old photos of XALTEA and look who their drummer was!

XALTEA of all places, it blows my mind.

 

Back then he was known as Sakiya and his blog is still online

They have a single when JaiL (original drummer) was in the band, called Sicks. It had two tracks, the second of which is a precursor version of B.A.L.U.S.

It fetches a pretty penny and I've seen it on sale for ~8,600Y, but there's no way in hell I'm paying that amount of money for it, especially since Ricko is not at his prime in it and whines in it.

Thanks @patientZEROI'll update the discography with the DVDs. Sicks was already in the original post, but I couldn't find the image, so thanks for that as well ^_^

So in my usual browsing and waiting for my copy of Ajna to crawl it's way across the world, I checked JILUKA's OHP and store. It looks like Screamer has finally sold out! It may have taken two years, but they've finally gone through the 500 CDs they had in their inventory.

Same here! I'm oddly proud of owning their full discography.

I'm only missing Lluvia right now, somehow forgot to order it when they released it (shame on me) and now it seems like it's not available anymore.
Asked my Jiluka shopping service if she's able to get a copy for me tho (auction sites are way to expensive for me rn, so I hope she'll be successful)

Can we dub them as "post-hardcore" too? I'm not into the genre and I see many metalcore bands associated with it, so...

 

And I need their DVDs b a d l y.

I don't care for any genre. There's always the argument that a band exists in A or B. They're metal. Leave it at that.

 

Oh, and the DVDs are great. The sound production is phenomenal, but I wish they were a bit longer.

thanks! but since I'm going to Japan in December I'll try to get it there.

Sadly there's no Jiluka live during the time I'm in Tokyo (yet)

I was really surprised by the good sound,  I thought it's going to be just a bad recording of some of their performances.

They performed their fourth (offically numbered) oneman at Shibuya O-West last night, which is a pretty big success for an indie VK band. I'm hoping the place was jam packed with fans! During their live they announced that their fifth (offically numbered) oneman will be back at O-West on 2018.05.20!

 

Their set list was posted as well. You can see that they shot a live PV for their B-side to Ajna -SgVer-, M.A.D!

I don't know about you all, but I'm making my own playlist so I can see how the songs flow when I'm at work tomorrow.

I saw many fans selling tickets on twitter during the past month, so I don't know how packed it might have been. I can ask though. But if they announced a 5th oneman right afterwards it musn't have been bad.

 

I also made that playlist lol

 

They are definitely my favorite band right now (besides D being my honmei). If someone knows a shopping service that goes to their lives PLEASE let me know, I need to throw them my whole paycheck.

I think @-Tetsu-said something about knowing someone who goes to JILUKA lives. They also have an online shop that occasionally sells goods other than their music. There's nothing on there now other than nail stickers, but they did have parkas, shirts and towels up in the past.

I check their online shop everyday since they announced the new goods two weeks ago. 

 

I have issues, I know.
