Song of the Day//Rhapsody in Black by A

A, otherwise known as ACE (short for Anonymous Confederate Ensemble) is a young band that formed in April 2010. The aspect about A that would catch most people’s attention is the fact that they are pirate themed, referring to their fans as “Hearties” (I’m assuming this is from the phrase “arrggh me hearties!”)! The second … Continue reading

Song of the Day//Count Down by Blu-Billion

Before their debut, this band was described on online forums as “Seika’s (from bis) new band”, much to my amusement (not that I’m too familiar with Seika or bis). Blu-Billion is different from other visual kei bands in that they have 6 members (you don’t see that very often!). Along with the standard vocals (Mike), … Continue reading

Song of the Day//fall on one’s knees by Cocklobin

Raise your hand if you laughed at this band’s name *slowly raises hand…* Despite my initial reaction to them (based on name only), I’ve fallen in love with this band’s style. Formed in 2008, cocklobin derive their name from “kumadori” or in English, “Japanese robin” which is known as a spokesman for sadness “the red … Continue reading

Song of the Day//Marry of the Blood by D’espairsRay

Today’s SotD is a bit sentimental to me and not because of the song itself. It was the first time I heard D’espairsRay music-they being one of the my first Visual Kei bands. The song itself has several interesting facts. It appeared on the band’s Maverick single back in 2003, showed up again on the … Continue reading

Song of the Day//Sky Blue by GUILD

ZANY ZAP are probably best known as the record company that signs Golden Bomber but GB isn’t the only band on that label willing to be a little silly! Enter GUILD, a quartet from Kyoto consisting of Ryuichi on vocals, Yoshihiro on guitar, Takuma on bass and Kohichi on drums. The two bands seem to … Continue reading
