Cute girls and metal! Who doesn’t want that….well I kinda don’t, kinda just a weird combo.

Carpe Diem was formed back in 2011, and I have to say they are pretty awesome. They are not your typical J-Rock band that consists of chorus’s that sound the same and similar structures. Carpe Diem is not main stream sounding by any means. If anything I would say they are more indie, sometimes eerie with a touch of fun. Its hard to say what they are. Im not really the best at describing music, but Chro, the lead singer has a beautiful voice and their melodies are something to make you feel relaxed. Check out their song Watshi no Koe after the break. Its a really touching song. and gives you a good feel about the band. Continue reading »

If you want fun, exciting, catchy, and hard J-Rock, You can’t go wrong with MEJIBRAY. Relatively new MEJIBRAY was formed in March 2011 by the vocalist, Tsuzuku.  The band currently has 3 Albums and all of them have something awesome to offer. Tsuzukus vocals are addictive, I just wanna keep listening to him sing and scream.  The music itself is pretty chaotic with A lot going on, but somehow through all that, they are able to create a distinct and very catchy sound.  I highly recommend this band, they definitely have something going and should be watched as they take the Visual kei scene by storm.  Check out the song after the break to hear why I like them so much!

This is one of my new Favorite bands to listen to. I recently discovered Jinkaku Radio, and oh boy am I happy I did. Jinkaku Radio are a self- Produced indie rock band. The band consists of 2 people. Yuuki on vocals, guitar, lyrics and composition, and Naoki on bass guitar, live backing vocals, production and arrangement. Their name translates to “Personality Radio”, The music Jinkaku radio produces is so good, Yuukis vocals are amazing and the melodies they create together are very catchy. They sort of remind me of a younger Radiohead, but Japanese and more melancholy pop rock esque(dont know if that makes any sense). but anyway check out their song Kuchinashi (くちなし)after the break. I guarantee you’ll love em. Continue reading »
