Black Gene For The Next Scene was formed in 2011 by ex-Xodiack front man ICE. They currently have 2 full albums. Black Gene is really well rounded, they are considered Electronic Metal, but they are much more than that. ICE has that typical deep Visual Kei-esque voice that I love and there songs are very catchy. They try to mix a whole lot of sounds into their music which works for the most part but sometimes doesn’t. I wish they used less electronics and just stayed with the more traditional rock style. Overall Black Gene is awesome and I definitely will look forward to anything they put out. Check out the song after the break to get a feel of what they are about. Continue reading »

My Bacteria Heat Island is a fairly new band. Formed by former VO of Chemical Pictures, Tenten. MBHI has a an awesome sound, a heavier alternative rock sound. They have quickly become my go to band when I dont know what to listen to. All their songs are fun, unique and memorable. Tenten has a great voice and its great to see a band that is very visual in their style have music that goes against the grain of main stream sounding Visual Bands.  Check out the song below to see what I mean.

You may notice the Lead singers voice from the Tokyo Ghoul opening “Unravel”. Ling Tosite Sigure is nothing but awesome sauce. The trio formed in 2002 and has been making crazy progressive indie rock since then. TK’s voice is very unique and mesmerizing. Sort of reminds me of Brian Aubert of Silversun Pickups. Their music is a non-stop ride of awesome guitar rifts and fast high pitched vocals. Check out the song Monster off the album i’mperfect after a break. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
