Cute girls and metal! Who doesn’t want that….well I kinda don’t, kinda just a weird combo. Not sure if those two things mix well, but I guess it mixes well enough for them to go on a WORLD TOUR, hitting my city, Chicago May 14th at House of Blues. thats pretty cool for people cause Anime central is going on that weekend, So for those of you who like Babymetal, why not go see them Thursday night of Acen! Makes for hell of a cool weekend. Babymetal will be hitting many countries starting with Mexico on the 5th of may, Check out their Schedule so far HERE.

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!

J-Rock Tuesdays: Listen To: Nocturnal Bloodlust

The Melodic madness of this metalcore band is one to be heard. Formed in 2009 the band consists of vocalist Hiro, Cazqui and Daichi on guitar, bassist Masa, and Natsu on drums. They only have one album “Ivy” but its a damn good album, the vocalist Hiro has quite a range in his vocals when it comes to screams and growls, but you shouldn’t be scared because behind that he has a beatiful singing voice. I highly recommend Nocturnal Bloodlust if you are into the metalcore scene, and if not, give them a listen anyway, you may be surprised to find out that you just might be a metal head at heart. Check out one of their songs after the break. Continue reading »

All I have to say about this band is EPIC! Galneryus makes me wanna get on a horse and fight a dragon. The are very much sound like old school metal with kick ass guitar solos and crazy falsettos. The band has been around since 2001 and has 7 albums. I recommend checking them out, the lead singers voice and engrish caught me off guard but I fell in love with them. Continue reading »
