DEEP MORE DEEP #5 tracklist revealed!

DEEP MORE DEEP #5 tracklist revealed!

The tracklist for the latest DEEP MORE DEEP omnibus has been revealed! Fortunately, the CD features new songs from each band!!

MARCO new releases + special live events

MARCO new releases + special live events

In what seems like a terrific start to 2017, Marco has announced some new releases, including a new live-limited single! :)))

Their new single, Henjin Kikou (変人奇行), will be released at their live at Takadanobaba AREA on March 9, 2017. The single itself will cost 1000 yen, and can be bought with a photoset, which will be an additional 500 yen.

In addition, they will also participate in the omnibus album, DEEP MORE DEEP #5, which will be released on April 12. The album will also be sold in advance at the COMPILE RECORD presents event, “CHEMICAL SYRUP VOL.35 -DEEP MORE DEEP#5-”, on March 30. No word yet on whether a new song will appear in the release.

Vocalist Rei and guitarist Akira recently participated in a session event at Takadanobaba AREA on January 4, along with drummer Sera (セラ) (ex-GAMEOVER) and bassist Gou (ごう) (Ms. Habit). As it was fronted by Rei, they played a rather interesting setlist, according to a personal source:

  1. 東京 (Tokyo)
  2. ジャパニーズモダニスト (Japanese Modernist)
  3. バイオレットハレンチ (Violet Harenchi)
  4. 閉ざされた楽園 (Tozasareta rakuen)
  5. ジャパニーズモダニスト (Japanese Modernist)

All songs were originally by MERRY~♥

Guitarist Rutta will later hold a birthday live along with guitarist Yazuki (耶月) (GAMEOVER) on January 9 at RUIDO K3; the band will be dressed in their Torikago Aijin (鳥籠愛人) costumes per Rutta's request; coincidentally, this comes a few days after this single's release from last year.

EDIT 1/7: Marco have unveiled their new look, which looks like it was shot in the back of a lobby or something...their ties are fucking awesome btw. 🤘

Agitation Clysis ~Integrity~ tracklist announced
The tracklist for upcoming omnibus, Agitation Clysis ~Integrity~ has been announced. Unfortunately, as expected, all songs are old―except maybe emmurée's? Check out the song list here to decide if you're still interested.
Agitation Clysis update
Upcoming omnibus Agitation Clysis ~Integrity~ has added defspiral to its lineup (although the tracklist has still not been revealed). The cover art has also been released.

Too bad there's not a sample of the bonus track featuring all the vocalists...I can't wait to hear the rest of Lin's song!

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.

The tracklisting for upcoming omnibus Yougenkyou -west- vol.2 ~Osaka・Nagoya Rengou~ has been revealed. LIN will contribute the song Missing Melody, which we've seen mentioned a few times before. Also, the bonus track will feature FEST VAINQUEUR plus all other vocalists (including SUI), although the song is TBA.

The cover has also been revealed. It was designed by DAIKI, of GLAM BOY, which is the graphic design unit that often works for FEST VAINQUEUR.

At most shops, the album will include a privilege comment DVD. There are 4 types in total, and each customer will receive one at random. All 4 types include all 11 bands (excluding Cocoon), and differ only in contents of the comment.

The details have been revealed for upcoming omnibus DEEP MORE DEEP #2 (which features THE BLACK SWAN, VARYL, Fixer, and Nihilizm).

Yougenkyou -WEST- The Conquest of NANIWA- tracklist
LIN and Tatoeba join Kansai promotion group NANIWA V
LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-) and Tatoeba Konna Hanashi (たとえばこんなはなし) have announced their participation in the newly-established Kansai visual kei promotion group NANIWA VK Rengougun (NANIWA V系連合軍)!!

NANIWA V's first project is the Yougenkyou -WEST- (妖幻鏡 -WEST-) omnibus, which will be published in June by PLUG RECORDS' new Kansai sublabel―the one to which LIN now belongs―PLUG RECORDS west (again, West ≈ Kansai). An awesome lineup of bands (including LIN and Tatoeba Konna Hanashi) will contribute brand new (or unreleased) songs to the album.

The same bands featured in the omnibus will then participate in NANIWA V's first live event, Naniwatama ~Kekkishuukai~ (なにわ魂 ~決起集会~), on 2014-07-04 at Osaka (大阪) BIG CAT.

NANIWA V has promised more projects in the future, and I'm sure that LIN (or KISAKI) will continue to be involved. You can keep up by following the organization's OHP or official Twitter:

LIN officially revealed and releases announced
As mentioned last week, the second period of LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-) features SUI, MIZALY, and YUSHI of Megaromania plus CERO of zechs. Today, the band has been officially revealed, meaning we have a slew of releases and live details. Let's get to it!


  • LIN will release their first maxi-single, Sacred Xanadu (what a name!), via mail-order in the 2014-04-21 edition of Cure magazine.
  • Their second maxi-single, Chaotic Resistance, will be released in two types on 2014-07-23. The normal type will be sold nationwide, while a Kansai-limited version with alternate jacket and different bonus track will be sold only at visual shops in Kansai. A double-purchase-application privilege will also be available; details TBA.
  • LIN will make their first omnibus contribution to Yougenkyou-WEST- (妖幻鏡-WEST-) on 2014-07-23. Further details about the omnibus TBA.


  • LIN's first lives will be two twoman events, Sacred illusionism~Battle Revival~, versus Grieva (グリーヴァ) and Black Gene For the Next Scene on 2014-06-01 and 2014-06-11, respectively. Special projects, TBA, will be held.
  • Their coupling tour with Jupiter and Black Gene For the Next Scene, Battle for Clans Tour 【V3】, will be held on June 12, 13, and 17, in Osaka, Nagoya, and Tokyo, respectively.
  • Their first foreign live will be held in Taichung, Taiwan on 2014-08-10 as part of HEART-TOWN FESTIVAL 2014.
  • LIN's first national tour, Sacred illusionism, will kick off on 2014-07-01 and will end with the tour final and first oneman, Sacred illusionism -FINAL-, on 2014-08-31 at Umeda (梅田) AKASO.


  • LIN will be the first artist signed to a new label called PLUG RECORDS WEST.
  • PRW (PLUG RECORDS WEST) is a newly-established “western branch” of long-established visual label PLUG RECORDS―home to semi-famous indie bands such as Psycho le Cému, A (ACE), DaizyStripper, CELL, etc. So on one hand, we can presume that the label will have enough money to produce good quality releases; but on the other, the “brotherhood” of UNDER CODE PRODUCTION bands may not manifest in this new sublabel.
  • Is KISAKI the president of PLUG RECORDS WEST? I don't know. I do know, however, that KISAKI himself is listened as “organizer” for LIN's live events, which gives the impression that he'll still be fully in charge of LIN's activities―but he may not be managing other bands for the foreseeable future.
  • Just a note: that 2014-07-23 omnibus is a continuation of a classic line of visual omnibi that has been around since 2001. That, plus LIN being under an old label, plus the upcoming revival of the Rin・ne・ten・sei (輪・廻・転・生) events, gives me the impression that KISAKI is making an even bigger effort to bring old visual kei back to today's scene, somehow.

UNDER CODE omnibus features
UNDER CODE artists have been featured in a lot of omnibuses lately. First, there's the last memorial omnibus, High Style Paradox 2003~2013, which features all UCP artists. Second, Megaromania and LIN will participate in a special omnibus compiled by PENICILLIN guitarist Chisato (to which LIN will contribute a new song). And finally, sever UNDER CODE bands have been featured in a digital compilation series called VISUAL☆INVASION. Details for all are below:

High Style Paradox group order

Good news everybody!—I've checked with my shopping service, and they can help us buy High Style Paradox 2003~2013! I've created a special group order page at WE LOVE UNDER CODE; check it out below if you'd like to order the album.

Join group order

Please be advised that the album will be a little expensive, due to SHOXX limiting it to mail-order and convenience store payment only. The initial cost of the album (base price + domestic shipping + initial service fees) is 5,790 yen.

Once the order is placed, the albums will be shipped to my house; all participants in the group order will pay an equal share of that fee. Finally, all participants will pay a 3rd fee encompassing an equal share of the final service fees + full cost of shipping to their house. (If the initial service fees turn out less than I'm estimating, the overage will be applied toward the final service fees.)


Regardless of the expense, there's no other way for overseas customers to get UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's final omnibus! So, if you want it, better join now. I'll be placing an order at the end of the week.
UNDER CODE PRODUCTION memorial omnibus

UNDER CODE PRODUCTION has announced that, in collaboration with SHOXX, it will release its 10th anniversary memorial last omnibus, High Style Paradox 2003~2013. The mail-order-limited omnibus will be released in March, and will feature all significant bands (32 in total) signed to UNDER CODE PRODUCTION throughout its 10 years of activity.

Those who purchase the omnibus before February 28th will receive a special 24 month calendar.

Because the omnibus is mail-order-limited through SHOXX, it will not be available to overseas customers via usual means. However, I organize a group order as soon as I find a viable shopping service—expect a separate with details.
