NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! How can this be?!?!
They've been releasing a lot of music lately, why would they all of a sudden decide to disband?
This is the most upsetting thing I've heard since D'espairsRay split up.
They were defintely one of my favorite bands, it's just not going to be the same without them.

Not allowed to use PS COMPANY material!

PS COMPANY has recently come out with a statement on all their artists' websites, twitter and MySpace profiles:
Please refrain from using copyrighted pictures, movies or any other material from our site that depicts our artists.

We have seen an increase of this recently.
Images from our site have also been used as twitter icons or similar.
We would like to prohibit this use as well.
In addition, we would also like to prohibit uploading / reuploading our videos on YouTube and similar services.
For the artists sake, and our future coverage, we hope for your understanding and cooperation.


PS COMPANY bands are following:
- the GazettE
- Alice Nine
- Kra
- SuG
- ViViD

I think this is an absolutely ridiculous load of crap from PSC!
I would understand if the company were freaking out because too many people were uploading albums/singles from these bands. But that isn't even what we're talking about here. They're telling us we can't use promotional pictures or upload PV's (promotional videos), these are things that literally say, "We are here to PROMOTE the band." The people who post information on these bands (like myself), are basically promoting them for free. They're only going to make it more difficult for overseas fans to get information, and wind up losing a good portion of their fan base, so really they're just majorly screwing themselves over. In the end, this is only going to turn around and bite PSC in the ass.

No Excuses......I swear!

Ok so......In all seriousness. I know that I've been slacking off quite a bit with single/album reviews and things of that nature, because it's sooooooo busy at work and honestly I'm tired by the time I get home. However, I didn't realize just how far behind I was until tonight.

I just discovered that I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT MUSIC I HAVE ANYMORE!!!!
Because I've never had the chance to listen to it.
I almost bought a second copy of Niji no Yuki (from Alice Nine) tonight because I couldn't remember already having purchased a copy. I literally have a pile of singles and albums just sitting there, on my bookcase, that I've never even uploaded to my computer. They've never been listened to.

In conclusion, I really think this goes hand in hand with my New Year's resolution: Managing my time more efficiently. And let's see, it's 13 days into the new year and so far I completely suck at it.

So, from now on I'm going to try REALLY, REALLY hard to get some reviews out for those of you who read them!!!

I swear I will!

New Look: Alice Nine [9]

I like this VERY much!

My Top 15 J-Rock Songs of 2011

I had wanted to make this list a little earlier, but I've been VERY busy, not to mention, wading through the ridiculous amount of J-Rock songs that have been released this year was extremely difficult. Thus, I was originally going to do my "top ten" but it was hard enough narrowing my list down to 15.

So, without furthur ado, my TOP 15:
(These are in no particular order, AGAIN, I had enough trouble just narrowing it down to 15.)

1. D- L'oiseau Bleu

2. Alice Nine- KING & QUEEN
(It was between this and RUMWOLF)

3. Para:noir- LiLLY of the VaLLeY

4. Lin -the end of corruption world- World in Flames

5. Versailles- Desert Apple

6. MEJIBRAY- Korewoizontoyobunara

7. ViViD- Crisis

8. MoNoLith- Byakuya

9. BORN- Natsume Zakuro

10. LM.C- Super Duper Galaxy

11. SuG- MadShip

12. DuelJewel- Polaris

13. L'arc~en~ciel- GOOD LUCK MY WAY


And last but not least:

15. And -Eccentric Agent- BLAZE
*Sigh*. This is post is REALLY long!

Yuuki always makes me think he could be a stripper.

NEXX to Disband

Seems that NEXX has announced that they are going to disband after their second one-man live at Ikebukuro BLACK HOLE, and that the decision to disband was unanimous. Their last live is to be titled "cap:cell”buried towards the epilogue".

WHAT!?! Seriously??
Didn't they just release their first full album?
I don't know about anyone else but I enjoyed their music. I thought they really had something going for them. It's a shame, I was looking forward to them releasing more. Damn.

The GazettE @ Inazuma Rock Festival 2011

Thanks very much to VisualKeiMasa for posting this. Great quality!
By the way, Ruki is really attractive in this, I love his outfit.

What's with bands titling everything the same??
Sounds good though.
