Exclusive Interview: VAMPS speak about their involvement with the J-rock music scene and more!
The Japanese rock scene is full of different themes and characters that fill our ears with the kind of music that is both mentally and visually stimulating.

Cosplay interview with Kei of EZCosplay
J-rock is a huge genre and style of sound that promotes Japanese rock music around the world. There are sub categories and genres that spur off the initial title of J-rock along with the fashion that surrounds the name as well. With anime-esque hair, outlandish clothing, men dressed as women, women performing deep growling vocals, and a mix of classical, rock, heavy metal, and pop combined to create unique and unforgettable songs.

Sukekiyo live at O2 Islington Academy 18th September 2014

Sukekiyo live at O2 Islington Academy 18th September 2014
Sukekiyo is a band with an air of mystery surrounding it, despite the fact that its members are individually well-known through their ties to other groups, especially its frontman, Kyo, who is also in Dir En Grey. With members from Dir En Grey, Rentrer en Soi, 9goats black out and Kannivalism, Sukekiyo is sometimes referred as a supergroup, but this is by no means an easy way of building up a band, thanks to the expectations it creates. Yesterday, Sukekiyo...

BABYMETAL’s UK Concert Sells Out and Changes Venue
Only two days ago we announced that BABYMETAL would be holding their first solo concert in London on July 7th. With the word spreading that this would be an event not to miss, tickets began to sell like hot cakes. In just 48 hours the tickets were completely sold out for their concert at the Electric Ballroom in Camden, London.

Miyavi “Slaps The World” With Fans In London

Miyavi “Slaps The World” With Fans In London
My original route within the East Asian music industry started with Japanese rock and visual kei fashion. One of the key players in my growth into alternative music was Miyavi, and finally getting to see him live and in person was a dream come true. There was a time in the good old days where Miyavi was known for his screamo music, and of course his own growth into the legendary name “Guitar Samurai” he is now known by. The concert was...
