Only really enjoy this with the male vocals. I hope that guy has a project with just him somewhere...

Remembering that times we were kind of addicted to that little beautys, hehe. We traveled 2 hours repeating the album and singing all the songs from them (me singing most of the times, actually). No shame, just enjoying. :D

Outside of music recommendations and seen live performances etc. I try not to discuss music with most my metalhead friends beyond which bands I do and don't like. I have very differing opinions to the majority of them on composition styles etc.
I won't lie, I like a chunk of pop music and pop influenced music myself, but I just can't get into stuff like Babymetal. I feel that way about a lot of Asian music though. A lot of it is very hit or miss for me. Much like English comedy. heh.
That is cool though. I do love when you find an album you can just loop for hours on end. First album like that for me was Shape of Despair's album "Illusion's Play."

Very good, but it sounds like a normal metal band. If it's Japanese, it needs the J element, something unusual :P



The way they actually don't sound weird, like many other J-bands, is what I like. They sound really old school!
AND they are named after a samurai and their lyrics are mostly about samurais!

Not actually Japanese, but Asian themed. These guys are from my city. I actually get most of my music equipment from the frontman at his guitar store. XD

still motion is off their album Illusion's Play. So that makes sense. The album was very, very good. Still one of my all time favourite albums.

Well that is the song on the album that's about finding hope and faith in a horrible life as a means to keep going forwards. I never realised how uplifting that song was until I read the lyrics.

Hehe, yes, we really enjoyed. I'd like to see them live because I think it would be a lot of fun ^^
