    Jupiter Ba.RUCY will depart

    I don't think Rucy was ever a good fit for this particular band since he came from the neo visual scene and the other guys are basically veterans. It wouldn't surprise me if there was some disputes going on, given the difference in music style and age especially.

    2019 Japanese Music Ratings

    This topic is starting to feel like a MH tradition now I think haha. But anyways.... This thread is dedicated to Japanese releases in 2019 that the MH Community will listen to and would like to keep track of throughout the entire year. It’s a nice way of referring back to a list, should you forget if you’ve listened to a certain release yet or not. I know I forget sometimes haha. These ratings can also help those who may want to see which releases are favoring well or not, based on each individual user who you may have similar tastes with. Feel free to set up your own rating system (Stars, ?/5, ?/10, Best to Worst, Oooh to Eww, etc.), but try and use spoiler tags to save room in your post, and save room on the page for the other members’ rating lists. Keep this list in mind in the event that we, the MH staff, host a JRock Awards at the end of the year . Last Year's for reference: 2018 Looking forward to seeing everyone’s lists at the end of the year! Yuyo’s List for 2019:

    MH JRock Awards 2018

    🎁As an early gift to the community, MH will once again be hosting the MH JRock Awards for 2018!🎁 Now, before you start voting, read the rules provided in the spoiler below, or else Yuyo will ... idk yet but just read it anyways. Once you have read the general rules, here's how to vote: 1. Copy the list of categories below into your reply 2. Fill in your votes (you can skip as many categories as you'd like) 3. Submit. (Try to keep your votes organized under spoiler tags in order to save space for other voters) Your posts will stay hidden until the end of the voting. Here are your categories to choose from: Voting will last until Sunday, January 13th of the New Year (2019) This will allow everyone to take their time, since some of us are still waiting on some final releases to come out this month. Note:  "Album" includes both full and mini-albums. For simplicity reasons, we follow the "Once Visual Kei, always Visual Kei" rule. So yes, that makes bands like Dir en grey or L'Arc~En~Ciel a Visual Kei band, just for the purpose of this voting. If you missed/skipped 2017 or are just joining the forum and have never heard of this, then take part this year! If you have any questions about the 2018 MH Jrock Awards, feel free to contact myself or any of the MH Staff! Happy Voting!

    Thank you Yuyo. Nice to see this kind of thread in 2019 as well. I totally got myself messed last year due to so many reasons and I couldn't even make mine and other things. I'm still in need to get some releases from last year too.

    Finally understood how to visually distinguish the first press of Lareine's Fuyu Tokyo from the (rarer?) reprint with the same code and almost same cover. *Insert "I'm a fucking wizard!" caption*

    At this point I'm hoping Kazari makes a new band and releases the music with a new vocalist/band. It's a waste to compose an albums worth of stuff and not release it especially when the stuff leading up to it was so good.

    THE THIRTEEN

    The "LAMENT" mini album is actually pretty good, it is high quality music. I don't think it sounds that similar to DEG, DEG nowadays is just growling mostly, so it really doesn't sound anything like this mini album at least xD it's very pleasant to listen to

    @Zeus So I linked this thread in the plug session last night and I think we may have triggered @fictioninhope and @doombox's past trauma of requiring them to write about イリヤ -ilya- for their ORZ application @platy & @Zeus - "Sink" is hands down one of my favorite VK songs ever. I'm pretty sure I first heard 9GBO in 2009, as The Gazette's singles leading up to DIM had reignited my interest in VK and they were one of the recommendations I received at the time. @Ito - 2008 was a major year of exploration for me too! That's the year I truly started to learn about J-indie. and LOLZ, iirc, Spike actually bought that UNLIMITS album because he liked them so much. @Zeus - That RENTRER EN SOI blurb is so bittersweet for me. Although I disliked the S/T and wasn't heads over heels with The Bottom of Chaos, I felt the band were starting to slowly regain their identity by the time Megiddo game out. I felt like with perhaps the next release, they would have fully integrated that heavier sound with their earlier one. It's a shame because they went out with so much untapped potential. Or maybe it was for the best? Bearing in mind the trajectory of Satsuki's solo career and all....^_________^;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

    Why is dir en grey popular?

    All pretty good points above, but I think a key ingredient is missing- the Obscure video and proliferation of the internet. That video was being passed around almost as a shock video for years in the scene/emo/mypsace days.

    Why is dir en grey popular?

    They're different, I guess. Aside from music that are very listenable to Western standards, it was their visuals. I suppose not many front man on VK bands who would vomit that kyo did on stage when they started out. Most bands were still embracing the 80s VK imagery popularized by X-Japan, Luna Sea and co., even DEG did it too, but they also did a little bit more too. And among others, DEG grotesque visual were stand out, this, combined with their rascal attitude back then really sold it to lots of VK listeners from abroad to get into them. I mean, people love bad boys as much they love bad girls. And these people does the work on doing mouth to mouth promo to their other friends. And it goes on and on. These days, it is a breeze for the band, I believe they got quite a street cred after Mike Portnoy praised UROBOROS to high heavens. Like, that is rare for any Asian bands, fam!

    Why is dir en grey popular?

    They're one of the vk veteran bands, so whenever someone looks into the movement, dir en grey is at the forefront. They've always used taboo subjects and imagery in their work which makes them stand out and attract a certain demographic. After they caught the attention of the west with more mainstream sounding music and visuals, they were doing world tours when vk was at its peak outside Japan. Not only that, they style of music they were experimenting with was extremely popular in the west at the time too. There's a bunch of other factors and variables but I guess that's the gist of it.

    Why is dir en grey popular?

    ligma but seriously; id imagine they got popular in the west cause they started having a western appeal in their sound starting with withering to death, marrow of the bone etc also this was after or around the time they toured the west with bands like korn so i assume thats where it all started, i doubt they had much western exposure to any album prior to wotd

    🔯2019 Predictions!🔯

    -Yuuga randomly comes back for a weird, inaccessible and time-limited, escapade -Someone who doesn't really have a following decides they should go solo -Starwave further extends their reach by signing visual-adjacent / not really visual acts while slowly killing off their current lineups -Poidol does well but people still forget about them -New Zombi album -More in-fighting with Jupiter, but they still drop a big release regardless -Riku tries again (Chariots revival? Solo act? New "violent art project?" Who knows!!!) -Menhera catches the attention of Twitter and I have to sift through a bunch of hot takes about it -R-shitei release their 2nd good song -Mamireta breakup before November -In spite of how "ground breaking" and "innovate" diru-adjacent sweethearts Kizu and Dimlim seem on this board, they never break 10k sales -D'erlanger have the seal on their crypt broken again -A new oyaji band forms and no one is impressed (think Nil under rain or Trick) -Noah (ex-Avanchick) returns to the visual scene after realizing he really isn't all that -What's his face from Bataar takes my bait on facebook and accosts me again -More bands start embracing digital streaming services and stop relying on the same 10 girls to buy all their merch to stay afloat -A new Lynch. album that doesn't stray far from Gallows -Some bizarre Drag Race x Visual-kei crossover -Someone from Kuroyuri to Kage makes a comeback, but everyone complains that it was the wrong member to do so -GLK Records bands continue to be a hot mess -Frantic Emiry release a new single or mini-album -PSC closes or turns into something unrelated to vkei. -Kra goes missing

    🦑❌Vocalist from BABOO will show up in a new band 🦑❌BABYMETAL as we know it disbands 🦑❌Su Metal solo project 🦑⭕xaa-xaa has three month consecutive releases 🦑❌XJAPAN album will drop, even if its on Dec 31st 23:59 🦑➕DIMLIM will have a style shift to gain more fans (if the rumours are true...) 🦑➕ DIMLIM plays at an overseas festival (well, they're playing in Mexico in 2020) 🦑⭕ 8PSB reaches PEAK levels of cringe. That's right, we haven't seen the worst of it... (the whole richardland concept was pretty cringy) 🦑I predict that the cringe will culminate on a Valentine's day project/release 🦑➕ Meto will participate in one music project, but essentially drops out of the scene (he's in Liraizo. I'm late to the party) 🦑❌ Another Kisaki scandal 🦑⭕Dir En Grey drops one single 🦑⭕Sukekiyo will bless us with another album and... 🦑😔❌Sukekiyo European tour on the latter half of the year💦 🦑❌Mathilda goes strong. Blesses us with a mini album 🦑❌ORCALADE will officially disband. Perhaps one single will be released before the announcement 🦑❌DADAROMA releases one more sex themed single. The Anal, maybe? 🦑➗Pentagon's identity is becoming warped by the minute. By the end of the year there'll be neither spooks nor idol looks, but a higher budget Initial'L 🦑❌Wild Card prediction for lols. Arlequin gets new vocalist. Or disbands because of Aki. Or maybe a hiatus 🤔 🦑❌GRIMOIRE disbands 🦑❌The VK sphere will be shaken up by a newcomer band 🦑⭕DEZERT may surprise us with a heavy single. However, they'll be quiet for most of the year (black hole was better than just a heavy single) 🦑➗There'll be some worrying news related to Kiryu 🦑⭕ It's the end of Lack-Co. 🦑❌Gosan vs Sick2 🦑⭕Sick. give up, we collectively sigh in relief 🦑❌Yoshiki X Miyavi collab.
