I kid you not, three times in the past month I thought to myself, what’s Shuuengo Buppan doing? and then went and looked at their Twitter feed and saw that the answer was “the usual” and then personally went back to being annoyed at how little action is in idol lately. But damn, remember how this neat little project just shot out of the gate over the summer? And we were all really excited about them for a few weeks? And then they disappeared because the Internet is a terrible memory hole?
Well, they’re back, with their first … single? They’re calling it a demo. A demo. On a CD. Now for sale. And with this MV! Continue reading →
This is so cool, you guys: So Oyasumi Hologram, who I can never believe only have the level of support that they do among Westerners, given that they’re incredibly great — at making their dreamy, ethereal, arty alt-whatever — have started a new project with a three-piece band (or potentially as a three-piece band, nuance is hard), and that project has a demo, and they’re promoting both of them with this out-of-nowhere MV for “machine song”:
Alloy just keeps on grinding out demo tracks on Soundcloud. They’re all good! Including this new one!
It’s very imaginatively titled*, and also perhaps prophetically, because things called “Ten” have a tendency to turn out pretty well, even if this isn’t the actual title in the end. That’s not a great joke. Continue reading →
Good ol’ Alloy; their MV is apparently mere days away, and the two tracks they shared out the other day were, despite being instrumental-only demos, packed with noise and aggression and made me really happy. So is the next in the series (literally, “Seven”, “Eight” and “Nine”), up to par?
I’m sorry, were you guys looking for something loud and punishing for your Thursday Hurtsday fix? I’m afraid that I can’t do anything to help you … other than share these two new instrumental demos from Alloy.
I guess I could only take the Romero reference so far with this one, huh?
Nonetheless! Living Dead I Dolls are still a little bit away from their debut, but they have a look and they have music, and cross your fingers and throw salt over your shoulder and spit into the wind and/or whatever it is your do to ward off the evil dead, because:
Let’s set the right energy for what’s about to come next and come back to Broken by the Scream. Remember them? A landing place for an ex-969er? Part of that two-week stretch where it seemed like there was another metal-sounding unit either debuting or recently debuted or about to debut in a few months or something but WOW that’s a lot of metal are you sure you guys are okay?
You all will have to forgive me for loving the ever-living hell out of Hategleam, hashtag sorry not sorry. With all due respect to Guso Drop, I’m not sure that anybody puts idol and hardcore together better.
However! Once upon a time, all the way back to the beginning of 2015, there was a lonely demo on Bandcamp, and it was by an up-and-coming anti-idol project called Hategleam, and that up-and-coming idol project called Hategleam had three anti-idols fronting the band instead of two and wow they were a lot closer to the idol side in those days.
