NightingeiL continues to “rebuild”, with the addition of a new member.
Someone on Monochrome Heaven asked for some information about Soleil, so I thought I'd type something up! Since it became a little long, I decided to post it here. Hope it's helpful!
Here's a bunch of news that I've neglected to post:
This is pretty cool: CELL (ex-La'Mule etc.) has released a digital single―despite being on hiatus―through cdbaby (this means that we can buy it super easily!). The digital single, for you..., costs $3.79 and features three-previously released songs, but remastered and with new English vocals! The songs selected are some of their best, so please check it out and support them.
NUMBER MOUSE, the long-running project of ex-DAS:VASSER vocalist KYOHEI, has announced that drummer YOU-YA (ex-La'Mule) is seceding. According to KYOHEI, the band will be adopting a heavier sound, and this change is the impetus for YOU-YA's secession.
[NUMBER MOUSE] (ex-DAS:VASSER, La'Mule, etc.) will release their new mini-album, DEGENERATED CREATURE, on 2014-11-11. They're a cool punk band with VK roots, and they'll probably sell the CD to overseas customers, so please [check it out]!
A roundup of information from the recent Rin・ne・ten・sei ~Cry-Max Pleasure 2014~ (輪・廻・転・生 ~Cry-Max Pleasure 2014~) event (continued from [this post]):
KISAKI has announced a memorial event for AYAME, the ex-drummer of MIRAGE who passed away this year. The 3 day event features a slew of one-day revivals from infamous 90s visual kei bands, with MIRAGE headlining each event. Check out the full details below:
Raychel BAND (れいちぇるバンド), the ongoing session band of ex-NEGA Ray, has announced a February performance. This time the lineup features ex-NEGA, SUZAKU (朱), and Vior gloire members, with an additional member TBA. Personally, it's a lineup that I would love to see as a real band!!
Here's an update of the sessions which various ex-UNDER CODE artists are performing with!
You might recall that La'Mule (who were once a band on Soleil, the parent label of Matina) performed at the KISAKI PROJECT sponsored 90s visual kei revival event last November. And at that event, La'Mule announced that they would perform again during this summer. Well, details of that summer performance have finally been revealed.
There are lots of little bits of news about last night's 輪・廻・転・生 ~A RETURN of “VISUAL MONSTER”~ (Rin・ne・ten・sei) event, and reports/pictures are just starting to pour in, so I thought I'd do a little roundup post. I'll add stuff as I find it (and feel free to add your own!)
KISAKI PROJECT will soon hold their 90s visual kei revival event, 輪・廻・転・生 ~A RETURN of “VISUAL MONSTER”~ (Rin・ne・ten・sei). And it seems like someone announces a new item for the event every day—so let's see just how many cool goods we're missing out on, shall we?
ex La'Mule members Kon, Isuke and Youya posted sad news on their blogs and since it's an Under Code event of sorts, I thought I should share them here.
Hey guys, just wanted to remind you of this year's Secret Santa event. Registration closes on November 20th, and recipients will be decided on the same day. From then, you'll have about a month to get a present together to send to your recipient.
KISAKI PROJECT feat.砂月 (Satsuki) has released details of its first live. It's a special event produced by KISAKI, “a marvelous gathering of bands who ruled the 90s visual scene.” Sounds awesome!
For those of you who want to own the only official photos of the two session bands, UNDER CODE has decided to sell coupling photosets of 水風船 (Mizufuusen) and ㈱ネガエンタープライゼス ((Kabu) NEGA ENTERPRISES. Each set is 1,050 yen and comes with four photos of 総長 (Souchou/KO-JI) with a member of the rival session.
All of this is old, but whatever, it's cool!
