Recommended Posts

:music2:Making its return for 2017, due to popular demand, we will be hosting the MH JRock Awards !!!:music2:

 

Now, before you start voting, read the rules provided in the spoiler below, or be slapped by a HUGE Viking Fish! – @Champ213

 

Spoiler

 

Before you cast your votes, take a few minutes to read this, because if you don't follow these rules, the staff may disregard your vote.

1. You can only vote for Japanese Rock artists. However, we use the term "JRock" very loosely and won't reject your vote if you happen to vote for a band that is borderline JPOP or any other related genre.


2. You may provide up to THREE nominees per category.

3. Only releases/events of 2017 (obviously).

4. Since all votes will be made public after the contest, you can explain your choices, but you don't have to. If you do, please make things easier for the staff by following this format:

 

Spoiler

 

Good example:

Best Overall Artist: Sug (Because they are super-kawaiiii)

 

Bad example:

Best Overall Artist: I want to vote for Sug, because they are super-kawaiiii

 

 

 

Once you have read the general rules, here's how to vote:

 

1. Copy the list of categories below into your reply

2. Fill in your votes (you can skip as many categories as you'd like)

3. Submit.

 

Your posts will stay hidden until the end of the voting.

 

Here are your categories to choose from:

 

Spoiler

 

  • Best Overall Artist/Band
  • Best Album
  • Best Single/Maxi-Single/EP
  • Best Cover Art
  • Best Song
  • Best Look
  • Best Newcomer
  • Best Veteran
  • Best PV

  • Band that Changed their Sound for the Best
  • Band that Changed their Sound for the Worse
  • Band that you spent most of your money on in 2017
  • What the hell were they thinking!? Award
  • Best Revival/Returns 

 

 

Voting will last until Sunday, January 14th of the New Year (2018)

This will allow everyone to take their time, since some of us are still waiting on some final releases to come out this month.

 

Note:

  • "Album" includes both full and mini-albums.
  • For simplicity reasons, we follow the "Once Visual Kei, always Visual Kei" rule. So yes, that makes bands like Dir en grey or L'Arc~En~Ciel a Visual Kei band, just for the purpose of this voting.

 

Any questions you have, please do not hesitate to contact any of the Staff!

 

Happy Voting! 

:cheers:

Best Cover Art: Marco - 穴二つ (Ana Futatsu)

Best Song: Marco - 夕轟 (Yutodoroki)

Best EP:

Labaiser - Chain of Tragedy (improvement in production quality, along with some stellar songs)

Marco - セイゾンノシルシ (Seizonnoshirushi) (improvement from their previous releases, with some pretty awesome tracks!! probably their best work by far)

 

Best Look: MERRY - エムオロギー (m-ologie),  Marco - セイゾンノシルシ (Seizonnoshirushi), Labaiser - Chain of Tragedy

Best Newcomer: ガンミ (Ganmi); ヤミテラ (Yamitera); Yumeleep (if they even count as "newcomers")

Best PV: MERRY - エムオロギー (m-ologie), Marco - 夕轟 (Yutodoroki)

 

Saddest Disbandment: 

ELYSION (they came off as the second coming of Megaromania, but they weren't as good and in the end, they ended up flopping anyway...very disappointed about both their musical output & their quick disbandment, but I wasn't really surprised when it was announced.)

ガンミ (Ganmi) (short-lived, but gone too soon, they had a lot of potential with their retro 2000s sound...)

MARIA’N†ROSA (technically a hiatus, but very short-lived as they also had lots of potential as a symphonic metal band)

 

Most Overhyped Band: R-shitei, Lack-co, RAZOR

Most Underhyped Band: Marco, Kalavinka, Crucifixion (although Marco was the same way in the past, the latter two bands' stuff is less accessible but I wish it would be shared somehow, and they deserve far more recognition than they have right now)

Most Anticipated Release: Marco - セイゾンノシルシ (Seizonnoshirushi), Marco - 穴二つ (Ana Futatsu)

 

Most Disappointing Release:

ELYSION - APOTHEOSIS (poor production quality, which was also prevalent in their previous singles)

SIRENE - Testament ~I'm Not Diva~ (was expecting this to be a sweet kotekei release judging from Maasa's bands, but it ended up being basic bitch garbage aside from a few tracks :/)

 

Band that Changed their Sound for the Worst: ELYSION (production quality began to deteriorate after their first single & even one of their newer songs is plagiarized)

Band that you spent most of your money on in 2017: MERRY, Marco ;w;

 

What the hell were they thinking!? Award:

ZIN (Jupiter) & his America-kei project

The guy from Rave staging his arrest to promote a single

厨二溺レ死ヌ。(chunioboresinu.)'s brief stint as "ベティ。" (betty.) for like 3 months...

 

Best Revival/Returns:

David (Sui solo project) (made up for Lin 2.0's floppage by releasing the amazing, "Requiemage")

Megaromania (reunited after 4 years, there's now rumors of a 2018 return and the fact that they were my first vk band, I hope that's true ;w; )

 

((I'm sorry this list is kinda biased and limited to only a few bands ;w; ))

- Best Veteran: Vistlip, Luna Sea

Half the songs I really like but the other half just bore me to death even though the sound they have going is absolutely fantastic. Stylistically it is fairly similar to ZMORA's album but with less metal influences, but I like the songwriting on ZMORA's album more.
- Most Anticipated release: Adoratio (Sukekiyo), In incontinuance (Gibkiy)

 

I'm just gonna leave it that, I don't have much for the rest.

 Nominees for Overall best band/artist:  Dadaroma                  

 

30820_j15tep.jpg

 

(Because they have done tremendously good job on their 3 releases this year. Their overall stand point in which talent and creativity has been interesting to say the least. There style changed from a crazy party (Dadaism #3) , to a weird scene that i probably really don't know how to describe (ポルノグラフ)  , all the way to this dark and powerful but yet also nice and quite balance of their recent release Ii kusuri / warui kusuri. I'm honestly blown away buy these guys wishing for more. Their previous releases they shown what they can do which was really amazing but these release are pretty much an extension on how different they can be. Even now its interesting how far this band has come and how different each release is which is what i mainly love about this band. It will always make you wonder what they are gonna do next and that type of anticipation is what makes me keep on coming back for more.)

 

Razor

RAZOR-thumb-450x338-87991.jpg

 

(Because mainly has to do with the way their sound is. Its different side that hasn't really hasn't been shown before. There is such a diverse line up with this band and its interesting to see the way they can take some hardcore stuff and just toss it around with techno. There 2017 releases were: DNA, Liquid vain and The core. Very good releases here. DNA. was great reminded me of one of Ryouga's previous bands a little with that release. Their PV was simple tho despite that it was a good release. Liquid vain. Have you ever gotten addicted to a song so much you love it so much Liquid vain is that song despite it being very weird and all over the place. I don't know how to describe it but its like had me hooked this year same with the rest of their songs in this release. The core. Very balanced release here most of the first few songs is very much of a mixture i feel as tho they are all trying to be not as brutal as the previous 2017 releases but that middle ground. Overall very nice although their PV's i feel need work on creativity i feel as through they are pretty basic despite their looks are nice.)

 

Best album: THE BEST ’09-’17 by Nocturnal bloodlust

 

56412_abx.jpg

 

 

Because of they have been my favorite for a while now. This album takes you back from 2009 to now on how they have progressed and its very good. In my opinion nothing has really topped Hiro's vocals/screams and each song is a reminder of how amazing this band was and still is today.

 

 

Nominees for Best Single/Maxi-Single/EP:

 

 Bokusatsu HERO by Dezert

58734_m3k.jpg

 

 

Senpai no Kanojo (センパイの彼女) by Tensai

Morrigan - Corpse mansion

Best Newcomer: Tensai (てんさい。)

 

32950_ig2uhq.jpg

 

Because there has been so much crazy things that this band has done in 2017 alone to their releases and a band member biking a long distance route to another city in japan. What a year this has been for the band. I personally never been to any of their live but its safe to assume its crazy fun based on some of the videos these guys have put out. Excellent job interested to see what this band is capable of in the future.

 

 

Saddest Disbandment: Avanchick

Band that changed their sound for the best: The Thirteen

 

20170924_thethirteen-750x400.jpg

 

(Becuase With the bands new release Evil mad science, they have shown that they are changing out from there old scene and into some new yet familiar shoes. This release sounds amazing within itself and is different then all the other released from this band. I was very surprised and blown away.)

 

Band that Changed their Sound for the Worse: A9(Alice nine)

DHgrj2mUQAEWyct.jpg:small

 

(Because i miss this bands old style ever since they changed their name they have been changing everything that originally made Alice nine. I hope to see them come back and do some something related to their old stuff rather then whatever else this is. Some of it does sound nice but i do truly miss their old style)

Best Overall Artist/Band: Jiluka. Everything they released this year was flawless (to me).

Best Album: Acid Blood Cherry and Pantheon -Part 1- (Matenrou Opera) take the crown this year. Gotcharocka's Screamy was also really good.

Best Single/Maxi-Single/EP: Jiluka - Xenomorphic. D's Orokashii Ryuu no Yume was also great and Do As Infinity released pretty solid singles.

Best Cover Art: I never really pay attention to those, but Grimoire's cover art for Uranometria alone makes me want to buy it.

Best Song: Ajna.

Best Look: D's dragon look is what I had been waiting for since 2014. No kidding.

Best Newcomer: Kizu. They are great on CDs and live.

Best Veteran: D and Mucc.

Best PV: I literally only saw like 3... Grimoire's PV for Frabjous Natch was entretaining to watch.

Saddest Disbandment: Yusai. I had high hopes for them. Ramiel also kinda hurt, they were nice live.

Most Overhyped Band: 0.1 no Gosan. They aren't that great imo.

Most Overhyped Release: Virge's first mini. Everyone was going nuts about it and I found it dissapointing. Their singles were better. Aiolin didn't live up to the standards either.

Most Underhyped Band: Amabo needs more love, though all their releases being live limited doesn't help them AT ALL.

Most Underhyped Release: Can't think of one, really.

Most Disappointing Release: Maybe Keel's Shishi... I expected more. Aiolin's releases too.

Most Anticipated Release: Ajna. I actually looked at the PV several times, and I NEVER do that. I also ordered it with EMS cause I couldn't wait a month to get it.

Band that Changed their Sound for the Best: Definitely D

Band that Changed their Sound for the Worse: Probably NoGoD?

Band that you spent most of your money on in 2017: Jiluka and D, hands down. I don't want to count to check which one eins either because I'll get depressed.

What the hell were they thinking!? Award: That fairy-kei look D threw at us in may. I can't believe I have photos with them looking like that.

Best Revival/Returns: I don't follow such old bands, but probably the only one I'm interested in is Mary Rue, cause You <3
