[Archived] Note about NEGA and Vior gloire

If you saw the UNITED LINK for JAPAN VOL:2 post, you may have noticed that I wrote “NEGA”—this is how it was written in the official lineup provided by KISAKI.

For some time now (since Haunted Jealousy, to be exact), I've suspected that the band would switch to a Western-character spelling of their name, and it now seems that I may be right. So, I can't say for sure until the band officially revives, but, for now, signs point to them officially changing their name to NEGA.


Also, there's something up with that new band, Vior gloire, but I'm not exactly sure what.

When I discovered Vior gloire yesterday, I remembered the ex-brodiaea/ex-GRiST band, Vior, which was to open for an upcoming UCP show. One of you then found that Vior gloire had a different lineup listed, but because we recognized the ex-brodiaea/ex-GRiST guys, we figured that they'd all just changed their names for the new band.

However! When UNITED LINK for JAPAN VOL:2 was announced today, the appearing band was listed as just Vior again. Now, does this mean that I think that Vior and Vior gloire are two different bands, or that the members aren't who we thought they were? No. But I do think that UNDER CODE is making a distinction for some reason.

Honestly, it's probably as simple as not wanting to give anything away yet (remember, Vior gloire hasn't officially been announced—we just figured it out because we're grade A snoops!). But just for the sake of history and complete transparency, I wanted to emphasize that, technically, Vior ≠ Vior gloire.

(I'm ok with you thinking I'm crazy for caring about this stuff~)

[Archived] UNITED LINK for JAPAN VOL:2

It seems that the UNDER CODE PRODUCTION sponsored earthquake charity event, UNITED LINK for JAPAN, was a success, so they've decided to hold a second volume! This new event will be held in June at ESAKA MUSE, and several special acts will appear.

[Archived] Megaromania new release + lives

First of all, Megaromania will be release a new mini-album! (No other details are available.) To celebrate the release, as well as their 3rd anniversary (yay!), they'll be holding a three-day sponsored event—which seems to be a threeman, but they're not calling it that, so whatever:

Megaromania, ALSDEAD, 我羇道 (Gakido), (large session)

Then, as a special thanks to fans of Megaromania, the band will hold a special night live. At the live, Megaromania will play all/some new songs from the mini-album, and several special session bands will appear.

Oh, and this doesn't fit here, but I never posted about it, so: purchasers of Oath -cross of eternity- could mail in proofs of purchase from both types and would get a pamphlet for Megaromania's The Quintessence Voyage in return. I don't know what the time limit on this offer is or if it was affected by the earthquake. At any rate, you'll have to live in Japan or get someone there to do it for you if you plan to send in for this gift. (Sorry that I've reported this so late!)
