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.

DAS:VASSER revival

Vocalist KYOHEI announced in his blog that DAS:VASSER will resume activities, for a limited period of one year, in 2012. Additional details have yet to be announced, but it's very exciting news nonetheless!

[Archived] La'Mule at 「輪?廻?転?生~A RETURN of "VISUAL MONSTER"~」

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.

[Archived] Matina Questions

Hi! I have a few questions about Matina. I recently downloaded Lagna's "Replace of Mind" and, after listening to it, discovered that it was apparently a compilation with a band named Ring. Who were they? Were they signed to Matina at any point? They have no page on VKDB or Grass Thread. Did they release anything else?

[Archived] History of DAS:VASSER (continued)

Continuing HIDEAKI's series of posts about the history of DAS:VASSER (volumes 1~3 can be read here). Again, these are Babelfish-class translations, so don't expect accuracy... but they're interesting nonetheless.

2011-10-20 02:40:00
[Archived] DAS:VASSER

DAS:VASSER has a revival coming up, and HIDEAKI has started a series of Ameba-only posts of his memories of forming the band. It's really interesting, so, although these translations are bastardized, I thought I'd share them with you. (KYOHEI has been mentioning these same events, but hasn't really added anything, so I've left his posts out.

[Archived] DAS:VASSER one day revival 2011

Details regarding DAS:VASSER's one day revival live are starting to be released. I'll start by saying that this isn't an UNDER CODE event—rather, it's sponsored by ELE-MUSIC, the label of DAS:VASSER bassist HIDEAKI. But it's still relevant to us, of course~

[Archived] AKIRA has a new band?!

This isn't related to UNDER CODE, but we all love Matina, right? Well, AKIRA, the second vocalist of MIRAGE, appears to have a new band! His new band is called FOWR (pronounced Ⅳ). No details yet, but apparently their [OHP](http://www.iv-FOWR.jp/) will be updated with details on the 16th.

[Archived] †News†

KISAKI announced in his blog a few days ago that both a Syndrome and MIRAGE remastered best album would be released this year. It's great news for fans of either of those bands and for new KISAKI fans. (Quick summary: Syndrome was a VK super group of sorts--it included three members from D, a guitarist from MERRY (メリー), and the drummer from Shelly Trip Realize. Their music was kind of classic VK with techno elements--something like HISKAREA. MIRAGE was one of KISAKI's earliest successes--they even released a major album, although I don't think they actually achieved major status--but its members went on to do a whole lot of nothing.) Also sad, because the releases imply that KISAKI really will be retiring forever. See the cut for more information.
