HearJapan delivers the new music of X Japan singer ToshI to the world [21 Jun 2011|02:05am]

ToshI delivering his angelic voice to the world.


Yokohama, Japan — June 21st, 2011 — HearJapan is excited to announce that X Japan singer ToshI has just added two brand new singles to the catalog!

Hoshizora no Neptune and Haru no Negai both prominently feature ToshI’s legendary vocal style set along-side elegant and moving piano melodies and string arrangements. These songs of separation, miraculous encounters and beauty could be considered metaphorically about the victims of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Their power and majesty work to heal all wounds.

Both Hoshizora no Neptune and Haru no Negai will be available to download the second they go on sale in Japan. Hardcore fans overseas won’t have to feel left out of this monumental communal experience! Make sure to pre-order now and set your alarm so you can be the first to own these incredible new ToshI singles as soon as they go live!

Also, don’t forget that along with ToshI’s healing voice, 5% of ALL HearJapan sales go toward the continuing relief efforts in Japan. And make sure to catch X Japan on their current world tour!

Dragon Ash Tour Rampage April 22nd at Zepp Tokyo [30 May 2011|03:09am]

Dragon Ash Tour Rampage
April 22nd at Zepp Tokyo

The concert held on April 22nd could be considered as a monumental moment in the history of Dragon Ash. Their newest album 'MIXTURE' aims to show in a definitive way what it means to be Dragon Ash, and what it means to be a 'mixture rock' band. Over the years they have succeeded in fusing together rock music with various other genres, primarily rap and hip hop. Having accumulated a vast amount of experience, and having experimented with all sorts of music styles, Dragon Ash decided to go back to their roots as a hard rock band. The new album 'MIXTURE' thus sends a powerful message to fellow artists, their fans, and to the rock music scene. The nationwide tour 'Dragon Ash Tour Rampage' provided an opportunity for the fans to directly experience the band's message. Everything culminated in a spectacular way during the final concert of the tour at Zepp Tokyo on April 22nd.

Weirdest Jrock video you've seen [26 Apr 2011|01:40am]

Ok, so I was watching some videos and I came across well, a lot of ones that are just plain strange and I mean strange for Visual Kei (if such a thing is possible). For instance KRA's Love Lab where the chubby boy falls for his love coach, a rough looking dude in a Hawaiian T-shirt.. Yeah that's weird or maybe that D video where that white guy sniffs Asagi's handwriting...weird too..

So, I was just wondering, what are some of the weirdest Jrock/VK videos you've seen.

Yoshida from exBOREDOMS. In total they have three singers, three
string players, two drummers and more!
