Hello my lovely readers!
I hope you’re having a wonderful October, and that you’re enjoying the new look around here.
It’s been a busy month so far, and a few new releases slipped through the cracks, so today I’m bringing you part one of my recent release digest! All releases in this post came out on October 1st.
With their indefinite hiatus looming ahead, I’m sure fans of 12012 were happy to get one more release from the band. The mini-album, “XII”, is the band’s last release, and includes one song written by each member.
XII - ￥2484
1. Vicious of absolution
2. Story of a different dimension
3. the red
After the release of their second full album in March, and third single in July, グリーヴァ (Grieva) has just put out their first mini-album!「黒イ百合ノ花ト×××」 (Kuroi Yuri no Hana to x x x) is a wave back to the good old days in visual-kei, complete with 90’s styled costumes.
Kuroi Yuri no Hana to XXX – ￥2548
2. 最後ノ晩餐 (Saigo no Bansan) -Kuroi Yuri no Hana to XXX version-
3. 相剋ノ[baiser] (Soukoku no [baiser]) -Kuroi Yuri no Hana to XXX version-
4. 退廃的狂葬 (Taihaiteki Kyousou) -Kuroi Yuri no Hana to XXX version-
5. Wish -acoustic version-
6. Diary -unplugged version-
Hailing fro the same label as Grieva, but only having gotten their start earlier this year is Gossip-ゴシップ-. “Psycho-pas$”, their demo single is a CD and DVD release, which is only available in limited copies, so get yours before it’s too late!
Gossip – Psycho-pas$ – ￥1620
DVD – 1. Psycho-pas$
If you like what you hear you’ll be glad to know that there’s more to come! As mentioned in the video above, the band’s first single, 「セン恥メンタルなサイコ野郎」 (Sentimental Psycho Yarou), will be out on December 7th, and their first mini-album, 「出戻り鬼畜サイコ野郎(再犯)」 (Demodori Kichiku Psycho Yarou (Saihan)), on March 11th.
BASH! just got started in January of this year, and released their first single on July 30th. Now they’re ready to share some new music with “LIV”, a three track single.
LIV – ￥1350
1. LIV -SE-
3. 1st berry
BASH! is now focusing on developing their activities throughout Japan, and aim to be a band that’s cool, easy to listen to, and with songs that everyone can love.
Last but not least on my October first digest is Lieselotte, who despite having recently lost two members, are still going strong with the addition of two support members! Lieselotte just released their very first single, 「此処で殺して/ウソツキ。」 (Koko de Koroshite / Usotsuki).
Koko de Koroshite / Usotsuki – ￥1200
1. 此処で殺して (Koko de Koroshite)
2. ウソツキ (Usotsuki)
3. 歪愛 (再録ver) (Iai (Re-recorded ver))
So there we have it! Lots of new things to listen to, and even more coming out this month.
