    Re: The Japanese Music Thread

    I haven't really looked for any new J-Bands, but I do have those that I still listen to.

    Dir en grey would be at the top of my list. They have changed their sound since the early days, but the music I think is still top-notch. Kyo vocals and crazy live performances keep me coming back for more.

    The Pillows - They sure spew out albums pretty quickly don't they? Like their stuff. An alternative sound with catchy melodic guitars and basslines.

    L'Arc~en~Ciel - Man, they used to be my #1 jband of choice, but recently their stuff hasn't been so good =[ . Still their old stuff is so catchy that even I break into song every now and then. Like their name implies "rainbow". Their sound is unique and consists of many different styles of music.

    Oblivion Dust - I can't say it enough about how I wish they never broke up. The closest thing I've heard to American music with Japanese flavor. It does help that the lead singer is half british and speaks good english. I definitely recommend this band to anyone. It's worth a listen.

    That's it. Lol. Sorry if i got carried away, but I think these bands deserve it.

    I love the music from Echostream. They started out with a big recording company in Japan and then moved to the US so I hope they fit in with the rest of this thread but I hope everyone checks them out. PM me if you want a link to a site where you can listen to their music.

    2.Only disagreement! No serious arguing(it makes threads get closed)
    3.Feel free to share your recommendations and have fun
    I'm a fan of Malice Mizer and Gackt. Hyde's good, too. They have great beats that you can really feel:

    Gackt - YouTube - Gackt - Vanilla

    Hyde - YouTube - Hyde - Hello

    I like gackt and Black Stone is my fav song ^.^
    Gackt is one of my favorite singers, so when I heard about Moon Child, with another one of my favorite singers, HYDE, i practically tackled Netflix and immediately put it on the top o' my list.

    Hm...Well I'm not too much of a japanese music fan, but there are some I do like. I enjoy Loud stuff like Maximum the Hormone [Does stuff from Death Note] and Gackt is also pretty good. Right now I'm just getting into a band called L'arc en ciel. [Full Metal Alchemist] The only solo artist for Japanese i really like in any respect is Utada Hikaru [Kingdom hearts]
