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!)

① UNDER GROUND MUSIC just put up a ton of Matina artists' releases for purchase, some of which are fairly rare! Bands include AZALEA, DAS:VASSER, DESCRIBE, Distray, Eze:quL, GARDEN, LAYBIAL, Madeth gray'll, Mebius, Remage, サリー (SALLY), and Vice†risk.
