Band - The GazettE

Well, this is not the first time I post The GazettE, so I won't talk too much about them.

This is one of their 2007 PVs titled "Chizuru" which was also featured in the OST of some drama/horror Japanese film..if I'm not mistaken

The song is slow and emotional, pretty cool for what I'm feeling right now, so here you go guys, and hope you enjoy it too!

Band - Dir en Grey

Dir en Grey are a Japanese rock/metal band formed in 1997, Japan.

This time I'll share two songs, they're from their latest album Uroboros (2008) and they're titled "Glass Skin" & "Toguro".

So the members are Kyo (Vocals), Kaoru (Guitar), Die (Guitar), Toshiya (Bass) & Shinya (Drums)

If you have read this far, it means you are somehow interested so did ya know that Kyo is pretty well known for his vocal-range?

He REALLY has a ridiculous vocal-range, you might wanna check more of their songs. (Cause in these, he doesn't "show" his complete potential)

Band - Coldrain

Coldrain are an Alternative J-rock band formed in Nagoya, Japan 2008.

Their style is a bit different than the other bands I've been posting, they're a more "hardcore" approach and their looks are more punk-ish, to say so.

Now, you're probably wondering "lol is this japanese?"
Yes it is xD they were formed and live in Japan, but the Vocalist is half-american ^^ (living in Japan too)

You guys should totally check them out, cause it's worth it!

Masato (Vocals), Y.K.C. (Guitar), Sugi (Guitar), RxYxO (Bass) & Katsuma (Drums)

They have an electronic-rock style but they sound kinda pinkish/childish sometimes(wich i dislike), still I love their "serious" songs.

I personally like the vocals(Yumehito) alot cause he sounds somehow unprofessional but it has a certain charm to it, dunno why ^^

The members are Yumehito (Vocals/Guitar), Takehito (Guitar), Intetsu (Bass) & Kenzo (Drums)

This song is called 0010101.0 and it was released in their newest single "Melody".
