    a little less whining please, i’m getting tired. two English posts in a row just to complain? why not spend the energy appreciating the foreign fans who came to see you and/or bought stuff.

    >makes live limited CD >makes it available at a single live, inaccessible for a good chunk of fans >overseas fans resort to downloading it to listen >band wonders why their inaccessible music is being downloaded and complain about it I’m sorry but Retsu can’t sit and whine about their INACCESSIBLE music being downloaded by fans who don’t wanna pay crazy second hand prices. I notice it’s only Retsu making these complaints and being loud on social media whilst Hiroshi and Sho keep quiet on the matter

    What did you dream about last night?

    two recent dreams: 1) Lizzo was visiting some rural Polish village, and for some unfathomable reason my parents were supposed to show her around. And I remember my helpless frustration trying to explain to them what is she about and desperately hoping they would not offend her somehow~ 2) I was once again in some small town, on some business. Some random dude and I got called over by a pair of siblings, a woman and a man, to investigate strange occurrences in the nearby village. The random dude was apparently my partner or sth. Anyway, we get there and it turns out that people are getting turned into rabid animals and eating other people. We find a half-dead boar, which we believed was once a man, bring him to a nearby dilapidated house and figure we need to open up his stomach to somehow prove that he was indeed a former human. The siblings believe that it was once their cousin but they reluctantly agree and I cut the animal open. Fuck but it was gross. There were human remains, and also some kind of parasite growing inside, presumably causing the change. My partner left to wash his hands in the bathroom and I turn to the siblings only to see that they're both bleeding from their eyes and noses. Somehow I knew that it was a symptom of the change, I go to tell my partner only to find him in the same state. And then I woke up.

    The fuckery that happens in this thread, ffs 🙄 Casual antisemitism is a form of hate speech and hate speech is something we don't take kindly to on this forum. Hate speech is something that gets people banned.

    It's becoming harder and harder to love this band for every new page of this thread. Leaving VK, whining, programming instruments instead of finding replacement members... I proclaimed them saviours of VK some time ago, now I'm wondering if they will last the year. How things can change.

    Excel Saga has a vk spoof in one episode but I can't remember which one/can't find it. Maybe a late 90s piece of japanese media isn't that unexpected of a place to find vk. But still.

    Funny as well as that post on instagram is basically just full of people basically saying "we love the band but when we live overseas and can't buy these CD's what more do you expect us to do? We want to hear and enjoy your music, not miss out because we can't attend a live show." lol. A common thing said on here, and I completely agree. haha.

    Franlky, I do think that it's a good thing for Dimlim that they drop the visuals. After all, to the majority of female audience jrock musicians are a thing - simply a projection of their adrogynous perfect males from the dreams. The audience couldn't care less. So if Retsu is truly fed up with it - good for him.

    I've grown to love the "new" sound and this has one of the best riffs and bass lines, they've done, lately. The album's bound to be tasty.

Please enjoy the rip that was done by Panda from Rarezhut. I'm very happy as to how it looks, and it's very interesting seeing Fanatic's early sounds and visuals.

    What are you listening to 2?

    Certainly not as harsh as it was at the beginning. Mixed quality, not atrocious like someone else said but certainly inconsistent.

    Okay, I attended their live in Shanghai, and their last song was, according to what LIME said, BLACK RAIN, so I thought it's 黒い雨. Also, half of the song was sung in Engrish which makes me think 黒い雨 and BLACK RAIN are actually the same song, one in Japanese, the other in Engrish (or bilingual). The song itself is quite sweet, the CD cover image was also used in the lyric video they played during the song on the screen.

    I find the CD jacket art unsettling... And it sort of hints at touching the WWII issue? Like the zouka to kalashnikov song by ddrm or something

    I think most people are referring to the live only releases. Am guessing if they love DIMLIM that much they are buying the discs they can, I do and know a lot of you other guys on here do, just is live only that problems start to come up. haha.

    I don't care so much about the language. If the music is truly heartfelt, the feeling will be conveyed regardless. If a video exists which I've seen, I'll usually default to that. Otherwise, I put images to music in my head, usually of other times and places. Combining visuals and music is something I think is really special and important. It allows the listener to immerse themselves fully. So I like to take the feeling I'm hearing along with the tone of the instrumentation, and create a story or image from that. For example, Malice Mizer's Apres Midi, I imagine Gackt in the park in the middle of Paris during autumn, surrounded by orange trees, sitting on a bench and watching people go by. One of the people is a woman he instantly attaches to, but she doesn't even notice him. All he can do is hold onto the moment as she fades from view. I feel very bonded with the artist when I think of things this way; perhaps this was the intent of many visual bands!

    As long as the music remains just as a solid I literally couldnt give less of a fuck about dimlim dropping visuals or what they think of vk. Their music is better than any other active vk band so as long as that continues you do you king

    Before thinking about doing anything oversea they need to rethink about their current situation, get a bassist, maybe a second guitarist, decide if they are keeping their visuals or not, write more music, ca$h some fat buck$ with merchandise, usual stuff every single band does y'know? I'd hate to see them go because of very poor hindsight...

    I really think guys need to play a lot in Japan, build their loyal fanbase even if it is little, and then think about moving on to something else. I feel they are rushing things a bit. Btw, how come they don't have "someone" behind? I mean, the releases, the recordings, the PVs... I mean, I always supposed they actually had an 'infrastructure', to say, I think they are far from being just guys composing djent in pajama in their parents house at 3:00 a.m. (Btw, how old are they?). But if this isn't the case, their output is by far so good for today's scene standars that I'm sure they already had a bigger VK-bands managing house interested in asking Dimlim to join them!

    What did you dream about last night?

    Ok this one was weird af. Also really fun. I was in the Ocean House Hotel from Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines. There were a few other people there, most but not all of whom looked pretty nondescript. I think it was for some TV thingy or something. Anyway we had to explore the hotel (to anyone who hasn’t played the game: it’s haunted and an early quest requires you to investigate the haunting), then (minor spoiler) the stairs gave way like they do in the game (end of spoiler), and I wound up trapped underground with another person who bore an uncanny resemblance to a certain long-dead VK icon, improbably styled magenta hair and all. That bit is not particularly unusual—random people in my dreams tend to resemble real people (people I know, people I see on the news, people I listen to)—but I remember noticing it and thinking “oh ok there’s no way this is a coincidence, most likely scenario is that this person likes the same music as I do, so we might be able to chat about it and keep each other sane down here”, while I normally don’t notice those resemblances until after I awake. But we didn’t really talk about music, we mostly talked about getting out of there. We were down there for a while actually, and I remember we talked about whether the others were down here as well or if we’d just been unlucky. Music did end up factoring into it, mostly when the other person pulled out a music-playing device (looked like an aging MP3 reader, but I’m not really sure) and started playing The Doors’ “When The Music’s Over”. Then we managed to get out of there, but the ground floor was filled with such pleasant critters as spiders, worms, moths, cockroaches, maggots, etc. We just looked at each other and went “to hell with the prize, we’re getting out of here!” before doing exactly that. Outside of the hotel there was the TV host, and the other person screamed something rather uncouth (I don’t remember exactly what it was, but it involved the words “motherfucker” and “go to hell” among a string of profanity) at him before we just ran all the way back to Santa Monica (the game’s main setting). Then it kinda became a little blurrier, but we were at the Asylum (which is a nightclub in the game) talking about the whole ordeal, mostly laughing about it. Then we kinda started talking about the sea for some reason. Then I awoke just as we were finally introducing ourselves after the whole misadventure. Edit: a few additional details tl;dr: a suspiciously magenta-haired person and I had to get out of a haunted hotel in a videogame. I probably shouldn’t listen to “Rose of Pain” and play Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines immediately before going to sleep. Or maybe I should, because that dream was fun as hell.

    What did you dream about last night?

    Had another half asleep, half awake dream last night. I was lying on my bed with my face turned towards my bedroom door. I sleep with the door open in the summer time because it gets really stuffy in my room. I thought I sensed something moving around outside so I opened my eyes. I saw this tall, thin, silhouette walking past the door, left to right, right to left. It resembled the creature in Insidious when it's standing in the shadow. I was scared, but I couldn't move. It's then I realized I was half asleep, half awake and my body was in sleep paralysis. Anytime I looked away and looked back at the doorway, it got closer still pacing left to right, right to left. I was sweating profusely, trying desperately to get up, but my body refused to move from its rigid catatonic state. I couldn't take seeing what it was so I just closed my eyes hoping it would either go away or do what it came to do quickly. But I soon fell back asleep and everything was fine.

    Thx for this amazing romaji translation. So Kuroi Ame in Japanese, also Black Rain in English. My bad for sharing information. Also, as tonight was a big venue but not filmed for DVD or anything, they really let themselves go. Live was wild AF, and Reiki’s hairstyle was F’ed up after like 30 mins from headbanging. Maybe they did Encore but I had to leave before. 15 songs intense AF though.

    Separating art from artist

    Depends on your political interests. I'm very right leaning and I personally cannot stand the average social justice warrior writer or actor for their individual spoutings of nonsense on Twitter. There's some I adore for the books they write or the roles they play, but if I'm seeing J.K. Rowling's incessant pressure of 'wE nEeDz InTeRrAcIaL mArRiAgEs FoR EvErYoNe' and 'HeRmIoNe ShOuLd Be A bLaCk MuSlIm LeSbIaN' she can go sod right off. Lovecraft is a different story. The guy was born in an entirely separate time from ours and you cannot compare the late 19th century / early 20th century to ours whatsoever. And for his writings; it's fiction. Get over it if Cthulhu has a distaste for the Chinese or whatever the fuck you can uncover from his warped words. The majority of people during those times were racists. For another thing, Antifa are actively looking to stir up drama where there isn't. If I remember correctly there have been at least five black metal bands in the past few months who haven't been able to finish their tours or been refused playtime during festivals and the like because these liberals think it's either necessary to threaten the venue or bands personally and thus gigs have been cancelled out of safety, or they've gotten the venues and / or municipalities to believe the bands have racist / national-socialist intentions whereas most black metal bands don't give a damn about political leanings and want to be left alone on the subject. It's just disgusting.

    "Kuloe has been found and should be back in the stage for the next live in Osaka" sorry, I want to express my personal opinion.. (I can still understand with those who do not agree with me..) I'm not a hater even if I do not like their style But only I think it's all staged just to make the band gain more visibility? that is, after a week of silence returns without leaving statements with just written "we found him and he perform with us in the next concert" but come on, usually who disappears so is never found again. PS: Of course I'm glad he's healthy, I like his look. PS.S: Sorry for my bad English.
