ODCOFFEE

Questions for the boys

Translation

OBLIVION DUST COFFEE Question/Answer NO.1 What are the key points of blending members? KEN I usually drink coffee that has a slightly sweet scent, but it is not my preference to be too sweet, so the point was to adjust the sweetness that does not interfere with the taste of coffee. With the proper blending of K.A.Z beans, I think that it has a pleasant taste! RIKIJL I asked for a scent and taste similar to what I usually drink.

2020年1月25日に東京・TSUTAYA O-EASTで行われた「OBLIVION DUST LIVE 2020 -Synched Up-」より『In Motion』『Syndrome』の映像です。 本来、資料用に撮影していた固定映像ですが、LIVE活動が出来ない状況にあるため、LIVE映像の一部ではありますが、皆様にお届けすることにしました。 また、皆様とお互い元気な姿でLIVE会場でお会い出来ることを楽しみにしています。 

"In Motion" and "Syndrome" from "OBLIVION DUST LIVE 2020 -Synched Up-" held at TSUTAYA O-EAST on January 25, 2020.
Originally, it was a fixed video that was originally shot for materials, but since it is not possible to perform LIVE activities, we decided to send it to everyone, although it was part of the LIVE video. 

I’m also looking forward to seeing you at the LIVE venue in a lively manner. 

DJ Sakura note , hope to see these guys live again.

According to all their social media accounts, we will be able to watch from the comfy homes, I’m always in my bed when i watch youtube, so lets strap in and enjoy! Ill be in the chat, if there is one 🤣

Naoki drummer withdrawing

~Drum.直樹-naoki- 脱退のお知らせ~

Drum.直樹-naoki- 脱退のお知らせ~

いつもDEXCOREを応援いただき誠にありがとうございます。

大変急なお知らせとなりますが、
この度、Drum.直樹-naoki-の脱退が決定致しましたことをお知らせさせていただきます。
日頃応援して下さっている皆さまには、突然のお知らせとなってしまいます事を心よりお詫び申し上げます。

脱退の理由としては、アルバム制作に向かう中で音楽やバンドに対する方向性の違いによる事が大きく、今後の活動を踏まえた上でこの度の結論となりました。

現メンバーでの活動は2月29日までとなります。
急な事で残り1回のライブとなってしまいますが、どうか見守っていただけますと幸いです。


アルバムリリースの告知や新作をお届けしたしたばかりの中、
応援してくださっている皆さま・関係者皆さまには、ご心配並びにご迷惑をお掛けする事もあるかと思いますが、DEXCOREはこれからも変わらず素敵な音楽を届けるべく、立ち止まることなく活動してまいりますので、引き続き応援をよろしくお願い申しあげます。


DEXCORE
Jelly Records

この度の脱退理由についてはオフィシャルで発表させていただいた通りです。

初期から応援してくれた人、箇所箇所でDEXCOREに出会って好きになってくれた人、応援してくれた皆に感謝しています。それと同時にこの先の景色を一緒に見れない結果になってしまった事を申し訳なく思っています。

方向性の違い、という言葉も脱退や解散にありがちな月並みな理由と思われるかもしれません。
でも音楽性の違いだったり、考え方の違いだったり、いろいろな事すべてが最終的には、方向性が違うという事に集約されるので、それよりも最適な言葉が見当たらないです。
応援してくれる皆に伝えないのは我儘なのかもしれませんが、でも結局はメンバー同士でしか分からないものなので、特に触れる事ではないと思っています。
決してファンを蔑ろにしているとかではありません。

オレ自身は、今後の事はまだこれと言って特に考えていませんが、またどこかのステージでお会いできる事もあると思います。
その時は応援して貰えると嬉しいです。

ありがとうございました。

直樹

Drum.Naoki-naoki- Withdrawal Notice ~
Thank you for always supporting DEXCORE.

It will be a very urgent notice,
We are pleased to announce that Drum. Naoki -naoki- has withdrawn.
We sincerely apologize to all of you who support us on a daily basis for sudden news.

The reason for the withdrawal was largely due to differences in the direction of music and bands as they headed for the album production.

Current members will be active until February 29.
It will be one live left because of a sudden situation, but I hope you can watch it.

While we just announced the album release and delivered a new work,
I think that there may be concerns and inconvenience to everyone who support us and related people, but DEXCORE will continue to work without stopping to deliver wonderful music without change We look forward to your continued support.

DEXCORE
Jelly Records

The reason for the withdrawal was announced as official.

I thank those who supported me from the beginning, those who met and liked DEXCORE in some places, and everyone who supported me. At the same time, I’m sorry that I couldn’t see the scenery ahead.

The word direction may also seem to be a common reason for withdrawal and dissolution.
But because of the differences in musicality, the way of thinking, and all things end up in different directions, I can’t find the best words.
It may be selfish to not tell everyone who is cheering, but in the end it is something that only members can understand.
It doesn’t mean you’re scorning your fans.

I myself haven’t really thought anything about this in the future, but I think I’ll be able to meet you somewhere again.
I would be happy if you could support me at that time.

Thank you very much.

Naoki

I have played very limited song by Dexcore because of their use of #fbombs, but i do listen to them at the gym and i hope for the best for them.

It took me a long time to create this. I have binged on DIR EN GREY for the past few months and I love them so much. I was always aware of who DIR EN GREY where, but I have never been this involved with their music. I forced myself to listen to each album. I forced myself to learn and follow all the members of the band on every social media platform i could find. (it was just so hard to do XD ) I played blocks of DIR EN GREY since the announcement they were coming to NYC. Each week I listened to the albums and picked the songs for my show. I started with their first album, i played all the discographies I could find. Even when their new single came out ‘ The World of Mercy’ I played the whole 10 minute long song. I even played it a few times of on my show. I listen to it all the time. I am even listening to it as i type this.

Toyisha is my favorite. He is an amazing bass player. As for social media, I think his clothing line D.I.R.T. is the only thing
D.I.E. is on guitars. He is very talented guitarist and is very nice to look at. He is sadly not on social media. I think the internet would melt.
Kyo (ko) vocals he is the bestest singer ever. I make sure to check his inta and twitter all the time. He is also the singer of Sukekiyo who are amazing they have synthesizers. I hope they come to america too)
Kaoru another amazing guitarist. You can follow him now on instagram.
Finally Shinya, the drummer who is quiet the comedian. Photos of him on the tour in a freezer, in a hoodie, and when is not buzy touring he goes and plays video games on his channel.

Metal band #Heavensdust have been around for 20 years this year. Front man Shin, is continuing his journey, solo with an upcoming EP being released in early March. His new video ‘I’ll be there’ is a sweet light, experimental, acoustic number with shots of him and his child reassuring him we will be there. Surprised by a sample nearing the end of the song. #iheartjrock has been a big fan of #Heavensdust and Shin since before #iheartjrock was a thing. Wish Shin all the best to his new EP.

Background music was DIR EN GREY and Sukekiyo because of KYO’s birthday on 2/16 !! Love his voice so much too!!

Sorry I didn’t last all night. I was hurting badly. Will be back next week. It’s valentines, so send valentines greetings and I will read them on air! Send love messages, and other things ! iheartjrock@valleyfreeradio.org

Please tune in 10p edt on 103.4fm wxoj-lp northampton ma usa valleyfreeradio.org

Tonight back to a short block of #TheGazette for #Ruki’s bday. Another special selection of tracks from DJ Silent, music from #BREAKERZ , #ABC, #SID new music from #BuckTick, more #AKIHIDE and so much more!

Jpop/Johnny act SixTones song written by infamous Yoshiki of X-Japan fame.

Video released on Christmas has millions of views, and continues to climb the charts.

It is a beautifully written song, and you can recognize the meloncholic melodies written by the legendary musician Yoshiki.

Here it is. The count is in and these are the top played songs from 2019 that was played on #iheartjrock this year! There was a lot of great music that came out last year, #iheartjrock tried to play them all. I think I played a good chunk of them. Sometimes when a song is so good it has to be played more than once., and below is the result.
Also DJ Silent has his top pics for 2019, so check it out!
Listen and playlist at the very bottom of the page.
Thank you so much for supporting #jrock and independent radio!

15. BREAKERZ – BROKEN
Starting out the night at #15 is new music from one of my favorite bands Breakerz ! In 2019 they had 2 new singles come out. One digital and one released with 3 other tracks. My issue had Akihide card, I will one day give it to Shana. This song BROKEN is the loudest and most amazing thing ever to come out from them. I hope to hear more songs like this in the future. I liked it so much I played it enough to make the top 15!
Thank you for your hard work in 2019 guys!
14. Arlequin Razzle Dazzle
A band that caught my attention earlier in the year. This song came out and I ended up listening to it everywhere. Arlequin are having a very successful year in japan. They have worked hard too. They are always performing live. Check them out!
13. 8P-Sb – Entry
Once members of very popular VK band Meijibrey, Genki and Koichi teamed up to make some funky, poppy, good beats. A very colorful turn from the death, goth, glam, vk look they held for years. They pumped out the tracks in 2018 and 2019 and #iheartjrock supported them. Their track ‘Entry’ made the countdown!
12. Sukekiyo – tada, mada, watashi.
Dir En Grey front man Kyo has another great rock band called Sukekiyo , this project is more electronically driven, dark foreboding and noisy. This is a new song from Inifitum album released in June 2019.
11. Nocturnal Bloodlust Shonenjidai
I was super excited to find out #nokubura were coming out with new music this year. It was over a year since their ‘Whiteout’ single, 2 guitarists had also departed the band, and it seemed it was the end. But it wasn’t ‘Unleashed’ came out, along with a music video for their song ‘Thank You’ and it all just rocked my face off. Sadly they hit some more bumps but they are slowly getting back to normal. I love this album, but Shonen Jidai is the prettiest power ballad. Lots of love to these guys!
10. Hyde – Another Moment
Hyde’s first appearance on my countdown. This was the year for the rock star who threw VAMPS to the curb to work on his own rising inferno inside himself to tour the USA and support american rock bands. This song is just so touching. I have always it was a song about the relationship between him and KAZ , but you never know ! 🤣
9. Dir En Grey – The World of Mercy
I can’t believe this song was only #9! All 10 minutes of it’s beauty does make it one of the most legedary songs to end the decade with. The song came out in time to sing along to it at the lives. 1st single after the release of 2018 The Insulated World album(which tracks appear on #iheartjrocks best of 2018) We played a lot of DEG this year on #iheartjrock They are super sugoi 🥰
8. Dezert – Call of Rescue
VK band Dezert make an appearance on my best of. I know some requested this beauty. I will play more of them this year to come.
7. BUCK-TICK Rondo
Legendary #jrockers Buck Tick fly into my list due to requests and just a ever catchy chorus! What is not great about this band or song?
6. Madmans Esprit – Suicidol
My first non japanese band coming in at #6. This band came out of nowhere. I found them late 2018, and rolled into 2019 screaming Suicidol and #iheartjrock screamed along with him. They sound like all the bands I play on my show, I do believe they are on a japanese label, and they are not kpop more like unkpop or antikpop lol
5. DEAN FUJIOKA
Sakura From one extreme to the next, Dean Fujioka’s music has been on #iheartjrock for awhile. This song Sakura, even tho not of his singles, but his most played song on #iheartjrock I got a like or playing Echo back in the day and now he is a famous tv star all the fans seem to notice me playing his music and sharing it to. He is very talented in music, movies, and television. 👏
4. Hyde
Mad Qualia Hyde’s second song on my countdown. Although his other hits were played on my show, this one how ever got played the most! I believe its due to requests. I bought DMC5 because of this song. I wasn’t upset when I didn’t hear it in the game, I loved the game. I never smashed my fingers so much. Thanks Hyde for making great music!!
3. ATOM ON SPHERE Secret Life of Mine
2. ATOM ON SPHERE Dead Battery
Coming in at 3 and 2 is Atom on Sphere! I know it was through requests, and DJ Sakura and DJ Silent loving this band.
1. Esprit D’Air – Amethyst
Coming in as the most played track on #iheartjrock in 2019 !! I was amazed to see how many plays this track had on my show. It was requested a lot. Also I played it when I received it. It’s a very touching song.




Inbetween #Iheartjrock’s countdown DJ Silent has some selections of his favorite tracks from 2019. A mix of electronic, noise, and dark forboding music from talent individuals from all over the world.

Buck-Tick will be releasing a new single in 2020. It will be called, ‘Fallen Angel’. Releasing Wed 1/29.

Last year, No 0 was released world wide and available on streaming services for the whole world to listen to! #iheartjrock was so happy to play Babel, Moon , Ophilia, ignite, over the airwaves in the pioneer valley, also streaming on valleyfreeradio.org !

Then one after the other Buck Tick releases appeared on Spotify for out listening pleasure.

Who ever said ‘Rock is dead’ is simple minded and uncreative. This band has been around for 30+ years and still rockin’ along with several other rock bands I play weekly on #iheartjrock.

I can’t believe how fast I got my cd!! Looks really awesome on my book from work XD
Yes CDS from JAPAN are still relevant. This is my second #Nokubura cd. I love them so much.
The back of the cd song titles. Funny I got the Japanese song titles.
Liner notes.
The prologue is a glitchy noise peace to calm you before the storm.
Thank You starts off with Hiro screaming “You can be no one” and speed sings the next few lines in Japanese, I’ve seen translations and I think he is smack talking previous members of the band, but I am not sure about it. He is speaking about how people can be so caught up in themselves and think they are special, but they are really not. And people who use social media are insane because they think they are popular, but they are not. He’s angry. But the the chorus is so catchy! The last word is Plague, and in translation it’s basically You got the Plaque and the last word is Insanity, meaning the plague made them crazy. Wild.
BURN THE FAT . and you will if you play this song at the gym. The whole song is fast except for the line in the chorus that just comes in and goes but it leaves you feeling nostalgic. This is a song that is repeated by me a lot.
I couldn’t believe this song was sung by Hiro. I thought for sure it was a guest. The shout master can sing and it’s like the sweetest thing. I got reminded of slipknot or another 2000 heavy metal band. Really enjoy this song.
‘Why do you always try to make me cry? aren’t you sorry to me? your a motherfucking bastard. ‘ all i can say is when you are wronged by someone. this song should be song to them. Chorus reminds me ‘Halloween Party’ and any other carnival like vk band song ( D , Reign, The Gazette, etc etc ) I love this song.

Translation

A cry of sorrow sounds suddenly.
Pierce my body without any warning
I couldn’t find a place to hit this anger
Withstands pain with upright immobility and repeats

Why … why do you always try to make me cry?
Aren’t you sorry to me? You are motherf-cking bastard.

Is this a punishment or fate?
You are always there
Laugh at me
What is the purpose, what is it, what is you?
A small cocoon that bleeds in black deeply infuses your heart

See you again
Lurking hunter ambush eater
Because it ’s dangerous, you can put a cushion
Forget the next day and repeat again
I ’m a foolish human.

Why … why do you always try to make me cry?
Aren’t you sorry to me? You are motherf-cking bastard.

It hurts, hurts, hurts, hurts …

I hit my toes at some corner
Devil’s work
I hit my toes at some corner
Absolutely unacceptable samurai sadistic

Explosion
Clean hit bite on the little finger you stepped on
Women and men instantly fainted
F-ck f-ck f-ck f-ck f-ck f-ck a door
F-ck f-ck f-ck f-ck f-ck f-ck a wall

Why … why do you always try to make me cry?
Aren’t you sorry to me? You are motherfucking bastard.

Is this a punishment or fate?
You are always there
Laugh at me
What is the purpose, what is it, what is you?
A small cocoon that bleeds in black deeply infuses your heart

I hit my toes at some corner
Is there a nickname? Tell me your name
I hit my toes at some corner
Absolutely unacceptable insidious sadistic

This is a real funky song! This is the most unheavy song on the album. It’s fast like the rest but there is something different. I really enjoy this song. Especially the break in the middle where Hiro sounds like he is chanting with a vocoder or another vocal effect processor.
A perfect power ballad to finish off the album. I love the airy guitars at the beginning and the chorus reminds me of OneOkRock power ballads. ‘I promise you i will never make you cry again’ well.. if this song doesn’t bring a little tear to my eye.

I give Nocturnal Bloodlust’s Unleash album 💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔 ten broken hearts, especially with what has happened recently.
if you are unaware please check out nocturnalbloodlust.com for more info.

Nocturnal Bloodlust Unleashed is still available on streaming services like spotify and itunes , you can also purchase a hard cd copy via amazon.jp or cdjapan.

The video for THANK YOU has been taken off YOUTUBE , which is sad because I used to watch it all the time at the gym.

It’s been 11 years since they formed. They are unfortunately on hiatus since the end of 2017. One member of the band became overly sucessful on his solo career, and the other is recovering from a snowboard accident. The band I am writing about tonight is VAMPS , and if you do not know who they are. Then this post will catch you up.

and if you know of them, then you can look at pretty pictures !

That’s Kaz biting Hyde.. they are Vamps
Jin (keys), Juken, (ba) , Kaz (g), Arly in back (dr) Hyde(s,g)
Vamps sold out stadiums all over Japan
Jin wears a mask or hides behind a curtain. I saw him in Boston as he was walking to his bus. I said Hi and he said Hi back.
Juken is crazy , but in a good way.
Jukrn peeking around Hyde
Once I met K.A.Z it was never the same ever again. Thank you I am so happy to have met you.
VAMPS like to drink

arly and juken
They used to have these awesome halloween parties with the other jrock bands. Each year they had amazing costumes. Halloween Party it was called.
I just want to say I miss VAMPS I saw them 5 times. They were amazing each time. I dance and screamed. I got to touch Hyde’s hand in Baltimore!

best part of the night, the drum and bass army brought along their puppy and got to meet and play with her!! She was very happy playful pup!

Warning: My photos of the live are not the greatest, I am very sorry. My GIFS are not so bad, the sound on the live is not very good.

Arrived at the venue around 7:40p to find that the doors were not opened and we would be in a long line that went down MASS Ave. We were in front of a vegan burger bar that looked really interesting called Veggie Galaxy. Will have to try it the next time I am in town. There are a lot of people asking that questions about the line. Every one says it’s a singer from Japan. The questioners then walk away.

Doors open at 8 , our line is moving and we are in front of 2 buses! I thought there was an opening band, but not. The club next door had a concert also. Hyde’s bus is behind it.

I took a photo at the end of the show on the way to the car. Thank you so much for coming back to Cambridge. MID EAST seems to be a place he must have enjoyed to come back to. I have seen a bunch of bands here in the past, Legendary Pink Dots, Hovercraft, Add N To X, adult. shellac , dead voices on air, trans am, and 2 years ago VAMPS!! also the club next door was called ‘TT the Bears’ and saw a lot of awesome bands there too. anyways

We are in and the line for the merch is so long. I go to the bar for a drink and wait for my friend to text me when she is here. The place is getting busy, there is a huge mural and a lot of people are taking selfies in front of it. sorry I got no photo of it. I am so bad at selfies.

My friend arrives in the city and we go outside to meet her. We stand next to Hyde’s bus for a few minutes. While waiting for my friend the line for the merch just disappeared and I got to purchase so much of Hyde’s merch!!

My friend and I make our way to the stage and there is a big dude with a camera on the stage and another dude with a selfie stick that is pointed at the stage. these guys are big an annoying, I see there are a few girls standing on a bench behind us and it’s actually a real nice spot. My friend and I jump up and the show begins!!

Here he comes

Hyde started off the show with Fake Devine. All the members came out one by one in masks and coveralls. Himself came out in a hooded trench coat with a mask that only hid half his face. The walls in the background where spray painted neon colors, and the on back of the the bass player’s Ali(IMOCD , MONORAL, radio personality too) jumper said ‘NEOTOKYO’ I didn’t get a very good view of the guitarist, Pablo(Fake? , Lisa, Polpo) or the drummer, Natsu(Nocturnal Bloodlust) sadly. Fake Divine, was released around Halloween last year. It was loud and fast and heavy. This is not one of my favorite songs that he put out, but it sounded so good live and the chorus just catches you and you find yourself screaming along. “I’m fighting to stay, I’m fighting to stay, I’m gonna fake divine, And save myself this time” 
After Light came up right after Fake Divine , this is my favorite song! I was so excited to hear it live. Hyde’s head was banging up and down to the music, There was a woman who i didn’t know who stood next to me on the bench rocking to it too. This is the first appearance of the megaphone. Up next was VAMPS inside of me. Made me miss KAZ so much. Megaphone came out again. 

Two Face. Out. Set In Stone. & Don’t Hold Back. There was a noisy synth jam before one of these songs, or maybe it was before Zipang, I cannot remember, but i do remember the keyboard player jamming and making interesting sounds with his synthesizer in between songs. I am not too familiar with these songs, I’ve only listened to the album in full 2 times, I’ve played Set in Stone and Don’t Hold Back once on iheart but because of the explicit lyrics I try not to play music with f-bombs, sometimes, I adult and it is overlooked. Jrock bands are just so naughty Zipang , Everyone wanted to hear the Japanese version of this song, including myself, but it was still beautiful,  wished Yoshiki was there playing the piano. Maybe in the future, they will play in NYC. 
I am not sure at what time they stopped playing and started speaking. Ali was speaking in a high pitch little girls voice and also spitting all over the place (ew) he mentioned they were touring this summer with In This Moment and to check them out. Hyde was walking around in circles on stage. He then also started to speak and his voice so soft and feminine, just the cutest and his English has gotten a lot better!  
Who’s Gonna Save Us was up next more screaming clapping and headbanging. Lion was after, I thought this was an older Hyde song that i had not ever heard, but apparently it is new and I still have never heard it. Bad DJ Sakura! 
The music for Underworld starts Hyde made us all scream our heads off. And said louder when we were done. I have never yelled so hard , I was coughing, sweating, and screaming like a maniac. “YEAH !! YEAH !! YEAH !! YEAH !! TAKE ME TO THE UNDERWORLD !! again shocked to hear him do another VAMPS song. I loved it, it did make me miss the rest of the band Kaz and Juken, and Arly and Jin(even tho he was hidden) Juken almost hit his head on the ceiling a few times. The MID East Club has a low ceiling and tall people have a disadvantage. Also made me think about the interview IHEARTJROCK had 2 years ago at the very same venue in the bus. We had asked “where is the underworld’ and Hyde answered, ‘Everywhere!’ Still enjoyable, arms flailing everywhere, bodies moving side to side. 
There is another break in the music. Hyde is saying Cambridge and everyone is yelling. So happy he came back to MIDEASTCLUB. The place was pretty packed and I had heard it was sold out, but I think there were more at this show then the VAMPS show 2 years before. There were a lot of females!! lol we love our Hyde. 
At this time, he made everyone sit down. We were screaming and clapping and sitting. Then he made us , jump up and clap. Me being on a wooden bench with a bunch of other people, I didn’t jump, i did clap scream and get up from my sitting position to rock to the next song, which is also another favorite of mine. The synth line from the intro to Another Moment played and we all ‘whooooo-oooohhhh’  Sick was next explicit lyrics what is with jrockers dropping f-bombs?? Our poor little radio station can get into some serious fines.

Then there is Mad Qualia , still have yet to hear this song while playing DMC5 , but I still enjoy listening to it in my car on my way to work most days, or on the way home from work with the windows down. This version live was also great! 
Mad Qualia ended and abruptly started into Midnight Celebration II . I was super excited. I screamed to my friend “YAY Midnight Celebration while clapping and yelling.. (lol. I’m so easily amused.) Then they went off stage. Still on the bench, my friend starts to scream for them to come back and do an encore. The crowd joins in, someone is screaming ‘HYDE’ no one leaves, the band come back to the stage and again i miss Natsu entering! Hyde says a few words and tells the crowd to turn on their flashlights. 
The song that ended the evening was ‘Ordinary World’ the phones lit up the dark basement of the MIDEASTCLUB. All the lights were turned off but could see, everyone held their phones up in the air and swayed back and forth. I could sing along to this one because I remember it since I was a kid!! It was a rockin cover. I got video of it, and I loved when he lifted his arms up. 
They ended the show and everyone cleared the stage. Few people remind in front of the stage to take selfies, I got a few photos of the stage, and i tried to take a photo of the pedals Ali had but it was all blurry. My phone really sucks at taking photos indoors. 
We exit the bar and meet the rest of the party outside. We are talking and I look over and see Natsu standing outside talking to a photographer smoking a cigarette. 🙂 I took a photo, but it did not come out at all. I had to go and could not stay to meet anyone. :”””< 
Until next time, Hyde had said “See you soon” so hopefully I will be able to see him again soon. 
Hyde’s performance at the MIDEASTCLUB on 5/17 is 10000000 or 5 broken IHEARTJROCK hearts

💔💔💔💔💔

This is a photo from after the show, how can you play synths like this?

I was upset again because I could not see Natsu, the drummer. I did see him outside the venue after the show tho. Ali from Monoral and IMOCD on bass and Pablo on guitar, Hiroko on keys.

My phone sucks, sorry these photos. Best I could do. I was on a bench not to far from the stage. More interested in the live then taking a beautiful photo.

my merch, i bought a t shirt, stickers, magazine and bag photos from the magazine.

The booklet!!!

My gifs. I hope you like.

It was a rather cool and cloudy day in NYC the day The Gazette came to perform. I arrived at the venue (PlayStation Theater) around 6 pm that afternoon and I saw the beginning of the line filled with fans wearing the shirt from the last live, I knew that was going to happen so I decided to wear a black dress and duster instead. The line for the show wrapped around the block towards Broadway and we were the last ones in line briefly before more fans trickled in. There was a man behind us who kept on talking to us and we were not really in a social mood(combination of gummy and drinks from earlier in the day was still coursing through my body…Sadly I was supposed to meet friends at the venue, too) There was a lot of foot traffic on Broadway for a Monday and everyone had to cut through our line , bumping and pushing us around until about 10 minutes before the doors opened. 
We got separated from the line so the foot traffic could get passed without causing more of a mess. I took video of a building I was staring at and also a photo of a giant teddy bear in a shop on Broadway. The time passed quickly and before I knew it I was inside the venue. The PlayStation Theater goes down a big flight of stairs  and leads to a wall. The wall displayed The Gazette logo, and I meant to take a pic of it, but I never did. Turn around the corner and see the line for the merchandise was really long!  I decided it was a good idea to get to the stage instead of waiting in that hell of a line, VIP got first dibs on the merch before the regular folk to, so I go to the front of the stage and was amazed how close I got!! I was on the right of the stage ( Kaz’s side or at the Gazette show , Uruha’s side!! )I stood and waited while listening to the fans talk about kpop, and some spoke about the last show ,  and I was just like “GET ON STAGE I AM SO CLOSE” The light’s dim and 99,999 starts, the crowd yells as all the members walk on the stage. A man with the selfie stick, on the other side of the fence is taking video of the crowd for the upcoming documentary that I hope they will release to overseas fans!! The band starts into ” Falling ” Our arms go up and we rock to the song, it is perfect and tight. Arms wailing bodies moving to the music and Ruki is dancing. They continue to rock with the next songs on the CD, ‘Ninth Odd Smells’ and ‘Gush’ they go so fast, I am so busy dancing and headbanging and cheering because I am so close and so happy! AOI struts his stuff and inches his way in front of us. The faces on the group are motionless and just ooze sex and beauty and wonderful things that cannot be touched or looked at. I stare at Uruha almost all the time I am on the floor in front of the stage. His thigh is showing his hair is cut so nicely, he looks really great. He looks really tall too. Ruki’s suit is the same from the video, but it is black velvet, he must be dying in it. Reita is directly in my line of sight, but far back on the stage. He just stands there, holding his bass and sticking out his tongue once in awhile. I am too busy having fun to really see any of it. I had wished I could use my camera to take photos, but they made the announcement at the beginning of the show, only a few were rebels and took their photos/videos of the live. 

I was so upset I couldn’t see the awesome drummer Kai, he was hidden all night behind the huge drum stand. He defiantly worked his arms and legs off tonight!

Up next we rocked to Vortex ! One of my favs , then Venomus Spider’s Web. A classic!! The light’s go out and the music stops. Ruki is in the center stage looking around at all the faces in the darkness. I scream HI Ruki while waving my arms around and he smiles, the music comes back and they go into a song off the new album. “Mortal” a very sexy dark gothic song with a lot of of noise and i end up doing a big arms thing .

As soon as ‘ その声は脆く ‘ comes on I move away from the stage and back up to sit with my party that came with me. I am satisfied I got a smile from Ruki and I got a good view of everyone so I can go an die now. When I get to my party I am surprised with a white t shirt that was purchased for me!! I am never going to wear it, but keep it for a souvenir. It was not a cheap t shirt. None of the items at the venue were cheap. Not even the drink I purchased. I went and got a drink and noticed the merch table was just about bare!!  No shirts, no bags, no cute things.

I went back to sit at the seat my party was at and viewed the rest of the show from wayyy far away. At one time I noticed over in the area where I was. He must of waited for me to move. XD
They played Dogma , Ugly , Filth In the Beauty, there may have been others that I can’t seem to remember, we left before the encore sadly.

I really got what I wanted from the night. To be really close to the stage. Last time I saw The Gazette, I was far away, and I did not really know of them. This time, I got to rock my face off and sing on the top of my lungs to my favorite Gazette songs, and they played all of them!! 
The Gazette are an amazing band. I am so happy they returned to NYC to see their performance. The last time they were in the area was 2016 , and I got to participate in the M&G because of a mutual friend at the time invited me. I really wanted an interview with the this time, but I must have received some invalid contact information. So overlooked because I am not a big rag mag.. whatever.

Atom on Sphere are a super-group of talented musicians from other talented bands of many genres in Japan. It’s been years since AOS has put out their first self titled album. I only heard of them recently, 2016 so the wait hasn’t been as long for me as it has to some hardcore fans. I did fall in love with the music right away because it was so like the music I grew up listening to, I love the 303 in Goodnight Blue, rave vibes …I listened to it a lot when I was at the gym. Over and over. I did put it away for a while and didn’t really think anything was going to happen to this project. I moved on and then all of a sudden there was this anouncement of shows, then of new music. Surprise a new song with a video to go with it. I was totally so happy! then another great song and then an album. All availible for me to purchase. Now I can review it as well as I can. This will be the first review of any music by DJ SAKURA666

Butcher’s Maze

There is a loud synth wail and I am reminded of The Prodigy. Not in a rip off way, but a nice tribute to them. Ken starts to sing and I am transported to 1999, he sounds like a brit pop singer its just so lovely. We go round and round and round and round and it is so catchy, the music is loud, Ken’s voice gets louder and angry. I find myself singing ’round and round and round’ during they day, not sure if Butcher’s Maze is even mentioned in the song, but I enjoy it so much!

DEAD BATTERY

This is my favorite song on this album. Song starts out really slow, nice synth melody and Ken’s voice is soft and sweet. The song begins and we are chanting “Dead Battery ruins everybody’s soul” over and over and the funky bass line a long with the synthesized horns leave the listening in a world of bliss. I love this song a lot. It makes me happy, it makes me move at the gym.

Doves

New Order ‘blue monday’ intro, and a sample from 90s electronic band Pop Will Eat Itself ‘Can you dig it’ along with neo- electro dance music, and lyrics about sexy people, being sexy. This song is a classic electronica tune from the 90s that never was. Ken Lloyd sings ‘void’ my life is complete! 🕊

Love Like I do

😲

I am reminiscent of an old brit pop groups nice dreamy vocals and synthesizers, with some lyrics that make me wonder. I would like to read the lyrics to this song if possible. I’m confused as to why it is explicit….maybe…

Got to say tho the drums at the end of the song are really strong.

Kick the Habit

Another sexy tune..This song is the most ‘rock’ on the album. The chorus ‘feel better’ loops causing a wall of noise ‘kick the habit…’ i like this one a lot. There are a ton of layers, ken voice, guitars, more noise 😁

WAR

Into reminds me of Yazoo! The vocal effects remind me industrial bands like Skinny Puppy and 3teeth. Nice synth lines, bass guitar seems synthesized, is that real drums?

Woooo-aaarrrr!!

My Cure

Is this Atom on Sphere? The most un-atom on sphere on the album, sexy, funky, feeling like you are in a loungy bar getting your drink on. Love it!

This is the song with honey reference, like old jrock songs

Secret Life of Mine

The most pop song on the album. Catchy chorus, great bassline, guitar songs like a synth, and the drums light and airy. When i listen i feel like I am watching an intro to an anime. Also reminds me of the theme to Big Bang Theory..lol

People and everything is always moving forward, this life, past life, the next life, you choose your life, you bring your baggage wether it is known or unknown with you through time, and if it is meant to be the universe will work to bring everything together like it was always meant to be.

Sound

Ken’s voice sounds like Emperor Steel of EOS when he sings the chorus. The guitars are very airy, synthesizer shooshing and bass wobbling, drums are putting it all together. 1st of the power ballads on the album.

Getaway

The last song on the album. It is the prettiest. It is a slow power ballad with beautiful lyrics and it just makes you want to grab a tissue and sob into it. A love song, a lonely song, Ken’s voice howls HOME and i feel his pain. The synths remind me of when i has a middle high school dance.

Got to getaway 🥀

This is a great ending to a great album. This is the ear candy my brain needed. I love all type of music, I def put this up on top of my list !  Give it a listen !!

I give it 5 iheartjrock broken hearts !

We all heard the message Vamps told us on social media back in 2017. They were going on haitus. Vamps were breaking up and we had to wait for them to get back together.

In the meaning time. KAZ went on many Oblivion Dust tours, and Hyde took the time to make new songs and create a new album.

We heard the first release ‘Who’s Gonna Save Us’ 10 months ago. Followed by Fake Devine and Afterlife, Zipang with Yoshiki and Mad Qualia from the Devil May Cry 5 video game. Then the release of ‘sick’ for street team members only to battle for the lip syncing competition to meet Hyde on the upcoming USA tour. Lastly Zipang English version feat Yoshiki and Then the lyric video for Set In Stone

Now we wait patiently for the new album !!

Also Hyde is coming back to Cambridge MA Mid East Club on 5/17 . VAMPS played 2 years ago and #iheartjrock got to interview them. I really wanted to interview Hyde again because the copy I have was the worst.

Hyde is on tour and check him out!
