Gird Your Loins for ‘GiANT KiLLERS’ and Also Get It If You Can

A Familiar Face in a Really New Place with AIBECK

There we were, friends, just minding out own business when this guy, this pusher comes out of the shadows and says, “Hey, you guys wanna see some new idols?”

If you know Pure Idol Heart, you know that this is commonplace! It’s why it’s important to make friends, because friends who know more than you or have a 13-hour head start on every day can and will give you referrals that you might never have found on your own because OH LOOK A BUTTERFLY. But that was last week(ish) when PIH first brought up AIBECK (Twitter); John wrote about them before, but I figured that I’d wait until this mythical teaser/trailer thingy came out so as to avoid clogging the lanes.

Oh look, it’s that thing! Continue reading

I’m More Than Ready for Zekkyou’s Album with I love you Orchestra

I’m Loving Yajima Mai’s Album Preview

Technically, BLOODTHIRSTY was already released, and we’ve had a chance to see promo material from one of idol metal’s best individual performers, but Yajima Mai just released this album trailer on YouTube the other day, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t share it and tell you that you should think about trying to acquire it … somehow?


Tell me at which song preview you felt utter despair overwhelm you

BiSH: The Music Video: The Trailer

With BiSH having a major single out next month, getting a music video was inevitable. Unfortunately, we have no music video yet. However, we do have a trailer for a music video:

Personally, I never saw the point in trailers for things like music videos. But I can’t lie that the piano notes at the end gave me chills!

Coinciding with the trailer, we also got some CD covers. Continue reading
