allKuroyuri to Kage announced that guitarist Koyomi and drummer Mutsuki will be leaving the band. Their March 30th live show will be their last with the current line up. But fear not, because April 1st will be their first show with their new lineup. It always sucks when members leave, but let hope everyone the best and hope the band stays together. J-Rock bands (especially) Visual-kei, have a tendency to disband a lot and form new bands quickly.

The Black Swan was formed by ex-Nega member Jin in 2014. I love the bands sound and everything they keep putting out is amazing. The black swan is slowly gaining its rank up as one of my current Favorite J-Rock bands. They are very progressive sounding, similar to the last music 12012 put out before they went on Hiatus . The leads voice is very eerie and addicting to listen to. Check out the Song below to have an eargasm.

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.
