嘆キ使徒 ‎- ツ···ラ··ラ

sss
ツ···ラ··ラ is an EP by 嘆キ使徒 ‎that was self-released in 1997. This EP is visual kei. Its also only two songs, and only one is on YouTube.

私ノ静ム, the track that is on YouTube is really awesome. It has really heavy Japanese goth vibes and sound to it, especially with the vocals. Deep and sometimes drawn out. The instrument part of it fast and somewhat aggressive, lots of fast snares. Accompanied by lots of bass and some guitar accents. This is an awesome track.

Kana – Spade

sss
Spade is an album by Kana (sometimes called Moon Kana) that was released in 2004 on the label Kana Ichigosha (which I suspect was made just for this release).  This album is goth rock, but is much more modern than all the other goth rock posts I’ve made, and it has a much different sound than those albums too.

This album is obviously rock, but not always obvious on the goth. Probably since Kana is a gothic lolita, which is much different than regular goth and is a much different subculture. Though some tracks do obviously have a goth sound to them, its nothing like what I’ve posted before, much more milder and lolita-fied. Kana is known for her sometimes mildly jarring vocals which might be hit or miss for listeners, I like her vocals but if you don’t you probably wont really care for her music. Her singing is unusual, and the melodies accompanying her are great too. Tracks range from upbeat and rocking to pretty slow.

r-2444944-1328425220-jpeg
Demo 2010 is a five track EP by Vapaudenristi ‎that was originally self-released in 2010. This album is RAC, and one of my favorite RAC albums by one of my favorite RAC bands.

This album has such an awesome sound and vibe to it. Its really lively and has a lot of personality to it. Its really rocking and some of the tracks sound somewhat uplifting. This album doesn’t really have the menacing vibe that a lot of RAC has, this makes for a really unique listening experience. The melodies in this album are awesome, the guitars are on point, and the rough vocals sound great.

KITCALIBER – D​.​FREQ​.​CRUSH

a0875639417_10
D.FREQ.CRUSH is an album by KITCALIBER that was released in 2012 on the label Lapfox Trax. This album is mostly hardcore, but also speedcore and breakcore. Also, yes I know anything Lapfox Trax isn’t really obscure but posting this anyways!

This is a really interesting artist/album because they have combined hardcore and similar genres with rock elements. The hardcore and speedcore is really good, hard, upbeat, and fast. There’s really nice stuff going on that makes you really want to move to it. The rock elements come in through various elements. There is vocals in this, but they sound like a mix between computer voices and singing (actually I’m pretty sure KITCALIBER modifies text to speech into singing). There is some rock riffs too and guitar which sounds really dope when added to electronic stuff. It sometimes even breaks out into full on rock stuff, but totally makes it work.

Blink 1488 – Enema of the Caliphate

frontEnema of the Caliphate is an album by Blink 1488 that was released in 2016. I have no clue what label this was released on but I found it on Hammerstorm. This album is RAC and Pop Punk.

Blink 1488 and an alt-right neo nazi Blink 182 cover band. This band is really funny because its happy totally normal sounding pop punk tunes, then the lyrics are all NS, white supremacist, and anti-refugee. Not going to lie, I’m not a fan of pop punk at all. But, the absurdity of this band is awesome and actually made the songs good in my opinion.

Graal – Sigullum Naturae

graal
Sigullum Naturae  is an album by Graal that was released on Moon Records in 1998. This album is progressive psychedelic black / death metal.

This album is really amazing and is an extremely unique black metal album. The album has an immense amount of technical skill. Guitars that are a mix of black metal, death metal, and psychedelic rock. Awesome and heavy use of bass guitar that sounds awesome and really helps push the unique sound. And dope drums that switch between very non-metal rhythms to jazz to metal. The composition of the tracks is really awesome. They’re progressive and the music really doesn’t sound that much like metal at times. The medlodies go allover the place, death metal, black metal, psyche rock, experimental, and really fun happy sounding stuff. The vocals are mostly lazy sounding and range in a few different styles black metal vocals and clean slow singing, and sound really dope. This album is really awesome and is really an experience.

As much as I hate pirating, the label KITSCH MAGIK has illegally re-released it as part of their “Copyright Infringement/ Bootleg” series, so you can listen to it and download for free there

Max Resist – Aces and Eights: The Best of Max Resist

Aces And Eights: The Best Of Max Resist is an album by Max Resist that was released in 2010 on Max Resist Productions. This is a best of album, just for reference the band formed in 1991. This album is RAC.

This album has very heavy punk vibes in it. I almost never listen to stuff that has this kind of sound, but I like Max Resist, they’re one of the exceptions. This is a great album though with 21 tracks of punk and rock n’ roll inspired RAC.
