  • MASKED RIDER SYSTEM has mentioned that they will delete their blog soon ;(
  • Ao (碧) [ex-paradeis ~ LOTMAN, etc.] will act as support guitarist at Mis†ake's 2016-03-11 live at Shinsaibashi (心斎橋). Still not sure who the other members are, to be honest.
  • Mis†ake will release their 3-piece black tea set (1,000 yen) at their 2016-03-11 live. They'll also release a keyholder (1,000 yen) and armband (2,000 yen).

  • At their 2016-03-26 live at Umeda (梅田) Zeela, Mis†ake will debut their new costumes and make an important announcement. (Actually, they say they will not do those things, but then say “(lying)” right beside that, lol. They're so stupid.)
  • More will be on FOOL'S MATE channel on 2016-03-07.
  • PENTAGON has re-stocked their ugly new goods at the GOEMON RECORDS official web shop.

    (Kinda interesting that ex-VARYL vocalist Hiro's previous band was called gossip too!)

  • More revealed the tracklist to their upcoming mini-album, PARADIGMA.
  • Paranoid≠circuS released the tracklist for their upcoming mini-album, DREAM BOXX. It includes 4 old songs and 4 new songs―which is longer than a mini-album, so I wonder if some of the new ones are SE tracks...
  • PENTAGON has released new goods through the GOEMON RECORDS official shop, available for order 2016-02-01 through 2016-02-05. (They appear to be sold out already, tho...!).
  • Se'ikspia posted a trailer with some footage from their “replay” live (tho they unfortunately didn't use the live-recorded audio). It seems that the band hopes to play another live, but that's still undecided.

HEISEI ISHIN vocalist Taku “presents” event in December
A special event has been announced for 2015-12-10 which will memorialize deceased HEISEI ISHIN vocalist Taku (拓). Several special acts will appear―almost all of which were part of the UNDER CODE PRODUCTION family ❤.

N@H, the special two-piece band which was considered the “second act” of HEISEI ISHIN, will appear, along with GIGAMOUS, the formal band that followed. The band More, which features ex-12012 members will appear, as will a special version of THE BLACK SWAN which features ex-NEGA drummer Yu (優)!! A session called Ishin (維新) will appear, which presumably will cover HEISEI ISHIN songs, too.

Finally, a super special session called Yoshifumi BAND (よしふみバンド) will appear, which is made up of retired ex-UNDER CODE PRODUCTION guys...!! It features CO- (the not-seen-since-his-arrest ex-FUTURISM・BOYZ vocalist), TAKAFUMI (most famous UNDER CODE PRODUCTION staff member), KANATA (ex-LIN guitarist-cum-sommelier), Yoshi (HEISEI ISHIN leader who retired from music), and 姫雛~hina~ (ex-Anjyu' drummer). (Interestingly, many of those guys worked at TAKAFUMI's club!)

What a great lineup... I'd really like to see that live! R.I.P Taku ❤

New omnibus series 「Agitation Clysis」
A new omnibus series has been announced! On 2015-08-19, the Agitation Clysis ~Integrity~ volume will be released, which features THE BLACK SWAN, Femme Fatale, Lucifer's underground, MASKED RIDER SYSTEM, More, GIGAMOUS, and more. They've not yet announced if any tracks will be new.


Agitation Crisis is a new series sponsored by the label LIZARD NEO. The series is a tribute to the famous indies compilation series that were popular in the 90s, and seeks to revive the feeling of “finding a diamond in the rough”. Three CDs in the series will be simultaneously-released on 2015-08-19.

The ~Integrity~ volume features cult-following bands solid fanbases and rich careers. Including the bands listed above, emmurée, HOLLOWGRAM, Sel'm, and STEREO.C.K!

The ~Reckless~ volume features young bands who are currently competing in the fierce visual scene. They include A.S.K, BUG scream, Diana, Dear, GateNo.14, STELLA・・・, UNDER FALL JUSTICE, VABEL, Kimi ha Surudoku (君は鋭く), CHRONOGEAR (クロノギア), and Kuro No Usagi (黒乃うさぎ).

Finally, the ~Metalize~ volume features metal bands DEAD EYE SPIDER, Death Land, Knock'em Dead, Leraje, RED RAW, SKILL ACTOR, VELL'z FIRE, SEXUA ROSE, Takeru (武尊), Tenrin (天憐), Narita★Family (成田★一家).

Each CD will include a sticker with bands' logos.


The tracklists for all three CDs are currently unannounced. I'm really hoping for new songs (especially out of the ~Integrity~ volume, which has an exceptional lineup), but we should probably expect old ones... At any rate, I'm excited for this new omnibus series with great lineups.
