I never thought I would find someone that could almost match Kyo’s (dir en grey) amazing vocal range and intense growls and demon-esque screams. But then I found Akane from D.I.D . If I had to describe this band in one sentence I would say “Younger generation Dir En Grey”, They have the intenseness of Dir En Grey but with more of a younger pop like feel…if that makes any sense. But I cant just compare them to Dir En Grey, They have a uniqueness that just keeps you listening. The band Debuted in 2012 and was founded by Akane(ex Para:noir) and  Shou(ex Para:noir). Of course like all bands I discover this band is on hiatus. Akane was emited to the hospital for a mental illness. They even had to cancel their NEW single which was suppose to come out back in June.  Check out their Site HERE and be sure to like their Facebook page. Check out this incredible song after the break from their last album “Paranoid Personality”. Continue reading »

Anything Kyo from Dir En Grey makes is gold and his side/solo project Sukekiyo is just that. Don’t listen to this band expecting to hear another Dir En Grey, because its far from that. Sukekiyo isnt heavy and loud, its softer and creepier. Kyo’s voice brings chills to my spine. Kyo has always liked trying new things and creating music that is different, and Sukekiyo is just that!

The new single Sustain the Untruth shows just that. The song is strong and wont let your ears down. It catches you right in and lets you melt into their heavy air and Kyo’s beautiful voice. The single was released on the 22nd this month and the basic CD has 3 songs, Sustain The Untruth(their Continue reading »

I know what you’re all thinking. Everyone who is into J-Rock has listened to Dir En Grey, well, thats not true. For the longest time I’ve put off listening to them on the account that they were so mainstream and popular. I like to try and find bands that are new and upcoming. But, I finally got around to listening to their new album and I fell in love with Dir En Grey. I can’t believe I’ve been missing out so much. Anyway For those of you still reluctant to listen to them as I was I highly recommend you do. They have been around since 1997 and have tons of albums under their belt. check out the song off their new album after the jump. Continue reading »
