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.

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 »
