Wow. “Loser Gospel.” Be still my heart.
There’s some serious idolcore happening in here. No harsh vocals, but it doesn’t need them. As usual, will keep the updates running after the jump. Continue reading
I was just going to update the “WORLD END CRISIS” post from earlier, but then I remembered that I like to game my SEO and decided to create a separate home for this stuff.
Anima Animus PRDX is how Google translates the title, the Latin explaining the dual female/male aspects on the cover (and playing a little bit with “anime,” too, if I may be so bold). That’s Zenkimi, though; bright and shiny on the outside, simmering violence on the in. Their music sounds like id, you know, just unconstrained desire, emotions pouring out from the ancient, reptilian part of your brain. Continue reading
Another two-hour window, folks. Will be repeatedly updating; I doubt very much is different from what we had before. This is the one with Tsurezure’s Shidare guesting on harsh vocals and blowing your mind.
Remember to use #WEC if you’re tweeting about it. They like when you use their hashtags. Continue reading
This is what love looks like: I’m finishing this from the Jersey Turnpike
I AM SO SORRY that I missed this before. Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da put this out a little after 9:00 and I was, well, driving. Just checked back.
This is only going to be available (officially) for the next half hour or so. Sorry!
Okay, you can listen to this forever unless they delete the file.
Lyrics: Continue reading
Oh neat, Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da just announced the release of a MIXCD (I’m guessing a collection of prior releases mixed up and/or remixes of said things) “There’s no sense!” on Oct. 26.
Click through. The track list and other details are within, and they’re great. I mean, you do want “WORLD eND CRISIS” on a disk, right?
But that’s kind of weird, isn’t it? Continue reading
Seeing this announcement last night sent me into a weird fit of going through Twitter and Facebook to see what I’d missed, but this is literally just popping out of the blue:
So the Queens of Yami-Kawaii are auditioning. And not just in that way that idol groups do, which is to always have an eye on available people who might be good fits (like how Bellheart holds auditions more or less constantly and hasn’t debuted a new member since Moechi graduated). Like, they’re looking for “highly motivated individuals.” Continue reading
Or, more accurately, Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da announced a big-ol’ one-man while they were wrapping up a highly successful one-man tour …
… AND, because what’s the point of being an idol if you can’t be in the studio every other day, their second full album will be released on Nov. 9. That’s merely plural weeks before/after my birthday! Continue reading
Remember the last time we got to share from iCON DOLL LOUNGE? That was pretty great. And this is pretty great, too.
iCON DOLL LOUNGE is sort of an idol showcase, a fashion-meets-musical-performance get-together of idols that fit right into our sweet spot — big enough and known enough to matter (or rapidly on their way there), but still not so huge as to turn up their noses at such a thing. Or, in some cases, the fashionista move is something they normally do. Anyway, the shows are fairly regular, and last weekend’s featured some site favorites and possible soon-to-bes.
But before the video begins, be warned that you’re going to see idols of pain, destruction and distress like you’ve never seen them before. Continue reading
They just snap-released another new song on their website, good for two hours. Go now to listen to “やみかわぐんまーち” (Mikawagon March?).
That’s quite a departure from yesterday’s descent into oblivion, isn’t it? But I’ll remind you that, while they’ve done videos including everything from suicide to cannibalism, Kiminosei’s darkest-ever moment is probably this nihilistic look at love.
Remember that awesome announcement from Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da the other day about how Shidare from sister group Yukueshirezutsurezure was going to join them for a new song to be debuted on Saturday, and it was going to be called “WORLD END CRISIS” and definitely involve harsh vocals?
It’s here. With lyrics. Continue reading
