Kra's appearance at the March 31st MIRAGE and Matina memorial event has been cancelled.
Someone on Monochrome Heaven asked for some information about Soleil, so I thought I'd type something up! Since it became a little long, I decided to post it here. Hope it's helpful!
👻 The LIN official web shop rises from the grave once more!
KISAKI has finally broken his radio silence: this morning he tweeted that KISAKI PROJECT feat.Hitomi will perform in December, and that he's sorry for the trouble he caused.
IJUIN AKIROW (伊集院 明朗) has released his best album, ALL TIME BEST.
TLDR: KISAKI was caught in a scandal today, and seems to have abruptly retired as a result... Full details, as I understand them, follow:
KISAKI PROJECT feat.Hitomi has just been revealed, and will be the special guest at Lack-co.'s 2016-12-16 sponsored event at Shinjuku (新宿) ReNY!
According to KISAKI, “Due to cancellations, two UCP lucky bags have been restocked. Two additional KISAKI lucky bags have been restocked as well.”
PISARRO have been on a roll since they formed only 3 months ago. [After simultaneously releasing three one-coin singles back in April], the band have another one-coin single in the works, plus a live-limited release.
KISAKI will participate in a 90s visual kei event in September!
Minor news roundup for 3/6 🤘
STELLA MARIA will hold a one-day revival on 2016-09-18!
Here are some more minor news items:
A quick news roundup before work. More to come:
Happy New Year! Some minor news:
LIN members KISAKI, SUI, and MIZALY have been announced as guests for RadioNEO's podcast, 「ラジカルNEOナイト VISUAL REVOLUTION!」, hosted by Stuppy magazine's very own Pokkun (ぽっくん). They are scheduled to appear on January 6, 2016, presumably along with Smileberry, Chanty, and Daiki.
LIN held their last live before pausing activities, Dedicate to Graveyard ~Everlasting Wish~, at Shinjuku BLAZE today. Here are some random comments about the live, mostly gathered by trolling Twitter:
Just a quick note...
LIN will sell several special items at their last live [before pausing activities] on 2015-11-22 at Shinjuku BLAZE―including some that are limited to 1 copy. Furthermore, customers who spend 4,000 yen will be allowed to take a photograph with the band (or favorite member). The band will also collaborate with visual shop Like an Edison for regular sales.
UNDER CODE PRODUCTION session band Shingen Kichi SPECIAL ~PERMANENT BAND~ (神言基地SPECIAL ~パーマネントバンド~) successfully completed its live at Abeno ROCKTOWN. They played several staples of Kisaki & Kansai Kizoku setlists:
A special session band made of ex-UNDER CODE PRODUCTION members will perform on 2015-11-17!
The latest minor news:
The latest magazine and television appearances from our lovely bands:
I've been too busy updating layout stuff to bother posting news m( )m. So here's the latest minor stuff:
Namamail V (生メールV)―the subscription service which allows fans to send and receive exclusive emails from LIN members (among others)―is increasing its monthly subscription fee from 300 yen to 500 yen, per band member subscription. The company's reasoning is that they need to make more profit to pay the artists fairly... pretty straightforward.
LIN has published its members' comments about pausing activities (find behind the cut). Although I can't translate, it sounds as if lack of success is the cause. The band also announced that their last tour, Unlimited Aesthetic, began on 2015-06-11, and will end with their tour final 4-day sponsored event, Unlimited Aesthetic~Halloween Night 4Days~. Finally, their three-stop last oneman tour, Dedicate to Graveyard~Everlasting Wish~, will be held on 2015-11-07, 2015-11-08, and 2015-11-22.
Here are a few upcoming media appearances (mostly from GOEMON RECORDS bands):
LIN will make an important announcement at their upcoming threeman on 2015-06-24. Hopefully it's something good D:!
ARLEQUIN is appearing in a shit-ton of media lately (including 4 as cover artist!!). Here's a list of all their stuff, plus some other recent appearances by other artists:
[As I guessed], it was Shirakawa Yoshihisa (白川 善久), of white Great wall, sound advisor to LIN, who passed away.
LIN has added a few more 1-copy-limited bootleg DVDs to its web shop today:
Here's a bunch of random news from the past weeks:
At their lives on 2014-09-13 and 2014-09-15, LIN will sell several limited items:
Back in his Syndrome days, KISAKI was a guest member of ANTIFEMINISM (アンチフェミニズム). This year, the project will reach its 15th anniversary―and KENZI and KISAKI have collaborated to produce an ANTIFEMINISM special event!
LIN's official web shop has had a number of updates (namely, a metric shit-ton of 1-copy-limited bootleg live DVDs). So here's a little roundup:
LIN is now available on [Namamail V], a service in which you pay 300 yen per month (per subscription) to receive realtime emails from your favorite musicians. Users can actually reply to these emails as well, although the musicians' email addresses are kept secret.
KISAKI fractured his foot at a recent LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-) live, and it will take about a 1½ months to heal. LIN will be very busy lately, but it seems that KISAKI plans to push through the pain.
LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-) have opened their official blog, official Twitter (@LIN_V_OFFICIAL), and [official web shop]. In true KISAKI fashion, the web shop already has a number of exclusives, including a bunch of 1-limited releases we'll never see 8|
A roundup of information from the recent Rin・ne・ten・sei ~Cry-Max Pleasure 2014~ (輪・廻・転・生 ~Cry-Max Pleasure 2014~) event (continued from [this post]):
KISAKI's monster 90s VK band revival project, Rin・ne・ten・sei, continued today with ~Cry-Max Pleasure 2014~ (輪・廻・転・生 ~Cry-Max Pleasure 2014~). The event was held at ESAKA MUSE and was completely sold out!
Here's the latest news, featuring ex-chariots, carat (カラット), ex-CindyKate (シンディケイト), ex-ClearVeil, KISAKI, LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-), Tatoeba Konna Hanashi (たとえばこんなはなし), ex-Vasalla (覇叉羅), and more:
The privileges for upcoming LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-) single Chaotic Resistance have been announced:
LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-) is the [back] cover artist for this month's edition of Cure magazine! Check out the impressive―especially in the amount of Photoshop used on CERO's face―cover shot above, and check below for a list of other recent media appearances by LIN.
On 2014-09-22, legendary visual kei hair & makeup house Tritt für Tritt will celebrate its 10th(!) anniversary with a huge modeling & live event in Ikebukuro (池袋). After teasing details for the past five months, Tritt für Tritt has finally announced the full lineup of participants in its event―and a plethora of ex-UNDER CODE PRODUCTION musicians will appear!
LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-) has announced that they will appear at Shinsaibashi Club ALIVE's 10th anniversary special event, at which legendary hardcore/metal bands RAPES and ROSENFELD will appear!
LIN has finally finished their song recording sessions, which started in December(!) of last year! Here's a bit of info about that, and some speculation:
KISAKI upload to his youtube account a preview from Sacred Xanadu pv :D
Just a quickie: KISAKI has mentioned that, in addition to recording new songs, LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-) has started re-recording songs from their first period. No word on if these re-recordings will be featured on their upcoming releases, or something further down the line.
LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-) and Tatoeba Konna Hanashi (たとえばこんなはなし) have announced their participation in the newly-established Kansai visual kei promotion group NANIWA VK Rengougun (NANIWA V系連合軍)!!
As mentioned [last week], the second period of LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-) features SUI, MIZALY, and YUSHI of Megaromania plus CERO of zechs. Today, the band has been officially revealed, meaning we have a slew of releases and live details. Let's get to it!
So, I happen to know the new lineup of 2nd period LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-). But! I would feel bad posting it before KISAKI makes his official announcement on March 20th... So, I thought we'd play a game: each day I'll reveal another member, leading up to the full reveal on the 20th. Sound good? Let's start:
KISAKI has announced that several limited goods will be sold at the [KISAKI birthday event] / the end of corruption world live on 2014-03-09:
Hello fellow UNDER CODE fans!
Hair and makeup studio, and long-time KISAKI collaborator, Tritt für Tritt has made an important announcement: it will hold a grand hair show event in celebration of its 10th anniversary! The event is billed as a dream collaboration between beauty and music, and will feature gorgeous artists. Details will be revealed on Valentine's Day (2014-02-14)!
KISAKI has announced a memorial event for AYAME, the ex-drummer of MIRAGE who passed away this year. The 3 day event features a slew of one-day revivals from infamous 90s visual kei bands, with MIRAGE headlining each event. Check out the full details below:
The organizers of this year's “KISAKI advent in Taipei” have announced that KISAKI will return! On 2014-01-11, he will appear at Taipei live house PIPE Live Music with the event C'est la vie ~REMAIN OF THE 20TH YEARS HISTORY~—this time featuring ex-Megaromania vocalist Sui and ex-VAGERKE band GLARD. Full details TBA on 2013-10-26!!
The WEB SHOP has added two requested items and has upgraded the KISAKI lucky bag:
The official web shop closes on October 14, and has announced its last push for final sales. For these 14 days, prices on most items will be reduced to HALF. The only items excluded are lucky bags, LIN bootleg live DVDs, and the newly released Shingenkichi HOLIDAY TV SET (details below).
Here are the most recent additions to the official web shop (which closes on October 14):
The official web shop has re-released LAST FAIR DVDs 【A】~【E】 in its privilege bootleg live DVD campaign. This means that customers who spend 5,000 yen can now select their desired free DVD from the entire set (【A】~【J】) rather than just 【F】~【J】, as had been the restriction in previous months.
KISAKI has mentioned that he will make an announcement in his blog, etc. on August 31st. IMO it seems that this won't be a huge announcement (eg. a new band), but will probably be about his participation in a session band that he mentioned.
KISAKI announced via Twitter that he has decided to perform this year after all (he had previously said that LIN's activity pause live would be his last live for 2013). He will release information regarding the performance on August 31st (incidentally, that's a very important day for him).
The UNDER CODE PRODUCTION OFFICIAL WEB SHOP has announced the second (and last?) part of its last special fair. This 2nd part introduces a handful of new, rare items, but unfortunately does not include any new privileges (however, the 5000 yen bootleg live DVD privilege from the 1st part of the fair still applies―at least until the end of July). Check out the list below:
Lilith has announced that they will appear in Chinese visual magazine [VISUALZINE VOL.10], which will be released on July 15th. Furthermore, they will also appear at Chinese anime festival and expo [CHINA JOY 2013] (details TBA).
Hello everyone! Due to money and space need and my musical taste changement, I am selling tons of visual kei & jrock stuff, including CDs, DVDs, live distributed stuff and photobooks by UCP bands including LIN-the end of corruption world, Megaromania, Phantasmagoria, Vior gloire...
As promised, UNDER CODE PRODUCTION has announced its WEB SHOP LAST FAIR PART:1, beginning today, June 1! There are tons of special and exciting items included in the fair―but before we get to those, let's go over the special items which aren't even part of the fair:
I've compiled a list of all shop privileges for UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's recently-released and upcoming collection albums. So if any of you are planning to buy any, be sure to get the best privileges! (And maybe even coordinate with each other to get different privileges and share them~!)
So, in my UNDER CODE Luckybag there were a few items that I already had.
LIN (凛 -the end of corruption world-) has announced the full details for their 3rd anniversary oneman, at which they will pause activities indefinitely. As a present to fans, the band has given the tickets a special price of only 1,500 yen.
OK, since there was a lot of interest, I've decided to do a group order for UNDER CODE 2013 lucky bags. If you want to join, please follow this flow:
Hi Undercode fans!
Here are some visual kei CDs and other items for sale. Originally, I was just cleaning out my personal collection, but I will start selling items for friends here in Tokyo as well, so the list will be updated every now and then. About 80 new items have been added, and there have been a few cancellations of orders, so I took the liberty of creating a new post.
Hi Under Code fans ^_^
KISAKI has just posted in his blog that UNDER CODE PRODUCTION will close. Below is his message, translated by Ku at Shattered-Tranquility.net:
Hi Undercode fans,
Hi people. have the following Undercode and Matina items for sale:
On August 5th, 輪・廻・転・生 -Matina VS UNDER CODE PRODUCTION- (Rin・ne・ten・sei) was held at HOLIDAY OSAKA. I thought I'd post the setlists and a couple of photos from the event.
A few days ago, KISAKI seemingly deleted all personal posts from his blog (release/live information posts were spared). For those of you who have been asking about it over twitter, this is the story:
Yesterday morning, KISAKI awoke to pain and repeated vomiting of BLOOD due to his long standing condition of internal ulcers. He has been taken to the hospital and will receive emergency surgery today. His doctor has ordered a stop to KISAKI's activities for the time being, and as such, he will not appear at today's planned live with 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN). Any changes or updates to his condition will be shared here.
凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) has just announced two semi-new releases: an album re-release and a live DVD.
I'm auctioning this signed KISAKI photocard:
Hi dear UnderCode fans!
Hi Under Code fans,
Hi guys~ I have an old Radifia demo tape that needs a new home. If that band sounds familiar, it's because their guitarist, Rame, went on to play bass in VIDOLL. That little item is up on Ebay [here] (I have two Key Party tapes up as well).
If you follow the WE LOVE UNDER twitter, you saw earlier this month that KISAKI mentioned Cu[be] releasing an album. The album has finally been announced, and as some of us suspected, it's a best album!
UNDER CODE PRODUCTION recently announced an additional event to its “RIOT GALE of NINE YEARS” live series, which celebrates its 9th anniversary.
I'm ashamed to admit it, but Cu[be] have a session event planned for May which I had yet to post about. So I'll do that now!
RIKU and KANATA of 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) recently held their birthday events, and KISAKI will hold his soon—so what about poor REIYA?! He announced his own birthday event today, which will take place in April.
As [previously mentioned], UNDER CODE is supporting ex-「あゃ」 (「Aya」) [and ex-chariots support] drummer 兼継 (Kentz) by sponsoring his “last stage” events. It turns out that “last stage” doesn't just refer to musical retirement...
UNDER CODE has announced that the privilege for buying KISAKI PROJECT's new single, Sou ~Twinkle Vitality~, from the official web shop has changed.
Ok, I originally set a due date of February 8th for fan book information, but I forgot about it and it seems that you guys did too. So,
Ok, I originally set a due date of February 8th for fan book information, but I forgot about it and it seems that you guys did too. So,
凛 appeared in the newest Cure vol. 102
Ok, I didn't receive any more suggestions, so I'm going to call this the final plan.
Ok, I didn't receive any more suggestions, so I'm going to call this the final plan.
UNDER CODE entered 2011 in a bit of a transitory state. Megaromania was only half active, NEGA was on hiatus, E'm ~grief~ had just disbanded, Arc and Synside were set to disband, and HEISEI ISHIN vocalist Taku had just died. After having, in my opinion, its worst year in 2010, UNDER CODE started 2011 in a low spot.
Well, Kansai Seiatsu 2011~2012 is officially over, and it was incredible! For those of you who attended the live stream, I'm so glad I got to share that moment with you! For those of you who couldn't watch, I did my best to keep track of the setlists. So here are those, plus some mini reports. Enjoy! And let's hope that there will be more events like this in the future!
At tonight's 関西制圧2011~2012 (Kansai Seiatsu 2011~2012) event, attendees who purchase more than 3,000 yen of NEGA or NEGA ENTERPRISES goods will receive a special gift. The gift is a “beautiful(?!)” signed comment CD. The CD comes in two types—the first features NEGA reminiscing on 2011, and the second features NEGA ENTERPRISES having a “fiscal year review”—and the type each attendee will get is completely random.
KISAKI has just updated his blog with new 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) information: the band will hold a special oneman live in March to celebrate KISAKI's birthday, celebrate the fans, and celebrate the release of a CD and DVD... !?
I thought I'd just post this, since KISAKI's tweeted it some mins ago, and it's cute and hilarious at the same time.
REIYA answered some quests by fans and posted it in his blog. It's not all, others will come soon, later.
Not sure if anyone mentioned it before BUT, CD Japan added some new KISAKI PROJECT stuff to their lists including:
As you may have known, I announced a contest here for a free ticket to watch the Kansai Seiatsu live stream. The winner has been chosen by random number generator: Seraphim.
i got it today morning. and its really funny, much better than previous 2. but i dont like josekouji-san or who is it.
I promised http://ambiantcosmo.livejournal.com/ I'd do the off-shot photoset first, so here it is!
Hi Under Code fans,
Here is some photoset I've scanned for you! I haven't put credits on the pics, so please be nice, and keep them in the community, thanks.
Yay! Several goods from KISAKI PROJECT and the 輪・廻・転・生 (Rin・ne・ten・sei) ~A RETURN of “VISUAL MONSTER”~ live series have been added to the official web shop. Most importantly, the KISAKI PROJECT demo single that was previously live-limited!
Hi Under Code fans,
There are lots of little bits of news about last night's 輪・廻・転・生 ~A RETURN of “VISUAL MONSTER”~ (Rin・ne・ten・sei) event, and reports/pictures are just starting to pour in, so I thought I'd do a little roundup post. I'll add stuff as I find it (and feel free to add your own!)
KISAKI PROJECT feat.砂月 (SATSUKI) has announced a new single! The single includes one new song, a re-recording of an old KP song, and, as a bonus track on the initial press only, another new song with lyrics written by SATSUKI. The single also includes a live DVD with band's performance from the A RETURN of “VISUAL MONSTER” event that was held last night.
The 90s visual kei revival live, 輪・廻・転・生 ~A RETURN of “VISUAL MONSTER”~, was held last night, and it seems that it was a success—a second and third part have just been announced!!
KISAKI PROJECT will soon hold their 90s visual kei revival event, 輪・廻・転・生 ~A RETURN of “VISUAL MONSTER”~ (Rin・ne・ten・sei). And it seems like someone announces a new item for the event every day—so let's see just how many cool goods we're missing out on, shall we?
ex La'Mule members Kon, Isuke and Youya posted sad news on their blogs and since it's an Under Code event of sorts, I thought I should share them here.
Finally ! LIN is coming for 4 gigs in Europe in February !
Ok, so this isn't official yet, hence the member-locked post.
File this under “uhh...”: for a brief millisecond, certain members of 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) had some of their personally-worn clothes for sale at the official web shop.!
Continuing HIDEAKI's series of posts about the history of DAS:VASSER (volumes 1~3 can be read here). Again, these are Babelfish-class translations, so don't expect accuracy... but they're interesting nonetheless.
朱 (SUZAKU) had a fateful meeting with KISAKI yesterday... and the outcome is that they've decided their complete revival! (Short and sweet: the band never disbanded or paused activities, but they were unofficially inactive due to losing two members.)
UNDER CODE has announced two special birthday events for both RIKU and KANATA (vocalist and guitarist of LIN)! Both lives will feature special session bands and as-of-yet-unannounced special projects.
An additional band will appear at UNDER CODE's New Year countdown event... 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN)! It has just been decided that LIN will play and do the honors of the countdown to 2012. I'm glad that they decided to appear after all!
Dali's new flyer has been published, so I have some updates for you:
Just in case anyone was wondering, the Halloween surprise at the UCP Halloween party on Saturday was that they threw candy to the crowd at the end of the live.
UNDER CODE PRODUCTION has announced that it will produce and publish a new release from the legendary band 怪奇!!動物アジテーター (Kaiki!! Doubutsu AGITATOR).
Tonight was the last 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) oneman of 2011. And thanks to UNDER CODE and EnTicke, some of us were allowed to watch a live stream of the event! So I thought I'd talk about it a little.
凛 Oneman Tour Product sales information
It seems that Dali will release two limited singles in upcoming months. I previously reported that the new song 25:55 would be released on 2012-01-11, but now it seems that there's to be another before that: らりるれろ (Rarirurero) will be released on 2011-11-11.
Cross-posted from http://nolifenosic"; .livejournal.com:
Yesterday http://rikic"; .livejournal.com made a post detailing the release of a Phantasmagoria “ALL SONGS COMPLETE WORLD BEST ALBUM” called Wailing Wall 2004~2010. The news had come from a blog post by KISAKI, but the post was quickly deleted, so I doubted whether or not the album would be released.
Last night, KISAKI tweeted that he was in an emergency meeting and would be making an urgent announcement at 17:00. Well, the announcement is here: 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) will hold a free oneman live in Nagoya!
From 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN):
For weeks now, KISAKI and SATSUKI (and too many support musicians to mention) have been in and out of the studio, recording for KISAKI PROJECT. However, they recorded their upcoming single pretty early on, so I had no idea just what they've been recording! Today, KISAKI finally gave a clear summary of what they've been doing:
The first full album from 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN), Independent “MAZE”, has officially been released through digital retailers!
Hey guys! As you know, KISAKI hoped to reach 5,000 followers by August 31st, and I announced a contest to help him reach that goal. Well, he did—he currently has 5,034 followers—so the contest is over. But I thought you guys should know that it was a resounding success!
Hey guys! I've decided on a ~sudden contest~!
Hey guys! I recently designed a WE LOVE UNDER CODE poster for myself, but I thought that some of you might like one too. So, take a look, and if you're interested, you can contact me to buy one!
As you know, 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) held their oneman, an epidemic of “OVERTURE”, two days ago. So I'm a bit late posting this, but who's surprised?! (In cases like these, I've had a tab open in my browser for two days with the information, but haven't posted it. Sad |D)
KISAKI posted on his blog the setlist of 1st anniversary live SE
KISAKI new twitter aim to reach the 5,000 followers until August 31. Than he will plan something.so, anybody who has twitter account, follow him [@KISAKI official twitter]if u dont have, make one !27 days are back and 727 followers missing.so let's do it !
KISAKI wrote on his [official twitter], that he will organize a (
free) one-man live show for LIN, if he reach the 5,000 followers in July. He had 3567 followers than.Now, July is ended, and he has (only) 4,194 followers now, so 627 ppls more.And he wont take a vacation with Kamijo and Hitomi T - T ww
KISAKI PROJECT feat.砂月 (Satsuki) has released details of its first live. It's a special event produced by KISAKI, “a marvelous gathering of bands who ruled the 90s visual scene.” Sounds awesome!
Vior gloire held their first oneman, 疑似カタストロフィー (Giji CATASTROPHE), at 心斎橋 (Shinsaibashi) FANJ-twice yesterday. Since I know we're all interested in them, I thought I'd share a few random details about the live:
I'm selling some UNDER CODE-related photos here:
The new UNDER CODE PRODUCTION band is... FUTURISM・BOYZ!
KISAKI has just posted a preview picture of a new band!! (As usual, it's a super small preview shot from the photography session, so don't expect to be able to identify much.) He said that he expects these newcomers to bring fresh air to UNDER CODE, but gave no other details—more will be revealed on August 1st.!
I didnt know/read about this V.A. VHS never, but nowdays i found it.
KISAKI wrote in his blog that he made record in studio with 匠 (ex-UnsraW). But not clear he will do live with KISAKI PROJECT in future or not.So it seems KISAKI working on release new KISAKI PROJECT cds already.
It seems that some of you were interested in the KING of UNDER CODE TRIVIA special edition t-shirt. Since that was meant to be unique for the winner of the contest, I don't plan to sell that exact shirt, but I've spent the past few days coming up with a brand new version!
REALies held their debut oneman yesterday, so I thought I'd do a little roundup post about it!
KISAKI was sort of joking when he tweeted this, but I think he'll hold to it: KISAKI said yesterday that if he reaches 5,000 followers in July, he'll organize a oneman live for LIN. Furthermore, RIKU added that he'll try to negotiate for a free oneman if KISAKI reaches that goal. KISAKI is currently at 3,567 followers, so spread the word!
The OHP has sort of been updated with new pictures of 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN)—the main picture of them has been updated, but the profile pictures are still old. Anyway, I found a bigger group photo, which you can see here:
First, to celebrate the release of their first full album, 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) has announced that they will hold two oneman lives at the end of the year. At those two lives, the band will sell a live-limited CD with a new song, Ambient Cosmo.
There should be an official message from UNDER CODE PRODUCTION about this soon, but I thought I would post an update for anyone who might be interested... LIN had to cancel their one year anniversary live today due to problems with a smoke effect they had. They got through all the session bands and they were just playing the first song, and they had to stop and get everyone out.
凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) is holding their anniversary festival today—well, in an hour or two actually!—and they've announced the goods that will be sold at the event. In addition to the usual photosets, straps, mirrors, etc., the band will also sell some very special goods:
KISAKI recently announced at his ameba blog that Vior gloire's 1st Single will be released on 2011.08.17- It will be named 「インスパイア」 (inspired)- Also ViorGloire will make their stage debut 2011.07.16 at Ikebukuro CYBERhere's the [LINK] for his AMEBA entry
please follow [for「KISAKI」lovers…]
Earlier this month, I made a post about the upcoming 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) summer festival. At that live, each member will hold a special session—those special sessions have just been revealed.
Thanks to ViSULOG, we finally have some official announcements regarding Vior gloire! The band has announced its first release, its first live/sponsored event, and its first oneman. But let's start with their first official photo!
Hi guys~ I guess this is kinda Undercode...(well they use to be and are good
fuckbuddies with KISAKI-sama) So I was curious who watched their last live and what were you're thoughts on it?! It was totally worth getting up at 3:00am for....but it just seemed like Jui wasn't putting too much effort into things at times...though the stage diving was pretty freakin sweet~ if I were those little Asian girls I wouldn't let Shun go either XD I'm pretty sure I'm rambling as I'm a little bit tired....so yeah GO~ talk...and stuff :D
In the MC during NEGA's set at last night's UNITED LINK for JAPAN charity concert, the band announced that it will revive with a 2011-07-26 oneman at 渋谷 (Shibuya) O-WEST. Before that, they'll play another one-off live on 2011-06-04.
Nega will be on the cover of the May 21st issue of Cure, and KISAKI posted a tiny preview of their photoshoot here! Furthermore, after the Cure photoshoot, it seems that they began photography for a new PV!
UNDER CODE has announced the release of a new omnibus live DVD—the first since early 2008! The footage was filmed at UNDER CODE's 8th anniversary live on 2011-03-10, and features all the bands that appeared at that live, with the exception of Synside and 妃&関西貴族 (KISAKI & Kansai Kizoku).
Basicly we have waited for the details since the first day of this month and now we get something out of KISAKI. A couple of pictures taken from the shooting of the first PV. Apparently this band is starting with it. Though I might be wrong about all this so correct me if he's talking about some other producing company's band. That would be odd though...
Some time ago, 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) announced that they would hold a “1st anniversary festival;” details of the event have just recently been announced.
Trying to make room for new stuff, care to help :D?!
If you recall, back in January I posted about two new bands joining UNDER CODE. The first band turned out to be 朱 (SUZAKU), but no details were available about the other new band. Well, KISAKI has just made a post with a little information!
These have already sold out, so forgive me, but I figured I should post about them for history's sake. The UNDER CODE PRODUCTION official web shop recently put up a few special, very limited items for sale. First, cheki featuring KISAKI and members of NEGA, members of CindyKate, VIDOLL's RAME, or Sadie's Mao. Only one was available of each, so they sold out almost immediately.
So they had their first revival live with Ayano! So I found some of the images! (I've been curious to see what Ayano is looking like now!) I'm just putting these up so they are all in one place and people don't have to blog trawl on the ever down Ameba >>
In yesterday's post about the ViSULOG special project, I gave you all a chance to take the hellishly difficult special KISAKI quiz and win a special perfect completion present photo. Well, the results are in, and one thing is clear...
UNDER CODE has partnered with new visual kei centric blog site ViSULOG for a special web project to celebrate the label's 8th anniversary!
Due to the recent post with KISAKI & Kansai Kizoku! I put up my copy of Black Milky so you can all hear Rame sing~
Earlier today KISAKI gave a little hint that 妃&関西貴族 (KISAKI & Kansai Kizoku) might return, and now the announcement is official: 妃&関西貴族 will make an appearance at both UNDER CODE PRODUCTION 8TH ANNIVERSARY「DYNAMITE EXPLOSION」 3/6 and 3/10 lives with slight changes in the cast.
KISAKI posted about the new UNDER CODE band that we've been hearing about, 朱 (“Aka”).
Hola guys! This is just a housekeeping post to remind of a few things (so sorry if you've seen this a million times!)
According to KISAKI's [latest blog entry], posted today (02/27 JPN), he will soon create a twitter account!
Off topic 'cause this is more just bits of info for discussion~
I noticed that Cu[be]'s latest single is available for purchase through iTunes, so I thought I'd post about all the UNDER CODE stuff that's currently available there. Buying through iTunes is a much cheaper way to support the label, so please consider it next time you're on the edge about buying a release!
Ok, the contest to win a free WE LOVE UCP t-shirt is officially closed. Now it's up to you guys to look through the proposed tracklists and vote for your favorite one! Whoever gets the most votes wins! The poll will be closed by Wednesday.
KISAKI threw us a little teaser... He's revealed the name of UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's new band:
PERESTROIKA announced their next live plans: a Tokyo/Nagoya/Osaka sponsored event called GLASNOST-XX.
[KISAKI announced] it half an hour ago~
Does anyone have good pictures of KISAKI's [newest look]?
UNDER CODE has just announced its 8th anniversary (!) event, DYNAMITE EXPLOSION. The event will take place over three days: 2011-03-06, 03-08, and 03-10. The event seems pretty standard, aside from Lycaon participating, but there is one really cool thing about it...
Hello everyone. I'm sorry to bother you all, but today I was checking KISAKI's blog and saw something interesting that I could not understand.
Some big announcements for シンディケイト (CindyKate)! The biggest announcement is that, through the beginning of 2011, they'll be embarking on a 20-stop, nation-wide, free oneman tour!! And as a special addendum to the tour, they'll be holding a special night live on 2011-03-21. The title of the oneman tour suggests that they're holding it to see if they can sell 1,000 copies of their new CD, which brings us too...
I am auctioning off one of the KISAKI costumes I won from the costume auction they hosted a few months ago.
Today KISAKI revealed the lineup of 妃&地下線オールスターズ (KISAKI & Chikasen ALL STARS), the special band that's set to appear at UNDER CODE's new year countdown event. (By the way, I think they were originally announced as the countdown band, but it seems NEGA's doing that now.)
Just a quickie: KISAKI says that something will be announced at the New Year countdown live, and it sounds like something good. What do you think it is?
Apparently VAGERKE disbanded last night, at their 2010-12-05 sponsored event ROAD AWAKE vol.8. It was their 10 year anniversary...
This is HEISEI ISHIN Yoshi's blog post about their disbanding. It was longer than I thought ;_;, but I hope it will help people who cared about (or were wondering about) HEISEI ISHIN and Yoshi to find some answers or plain to move on.
PERESTROIKA has announced a new sponsored event for 2011-01-07, which will be held at 渋谷 (Shinjuku) RUIDO-K2. Interestingly, the “main event” is that it will feature a one night revival of Misty†Chrise, which is apparently a former band of 如月 洸一郎 (Kisaragi Kouichirou; aka Ray of NEGA).
Hello all~ I have five Undercode postcard books that need new homes ASAP. They're all first prints and all postcards included. Artists pictured are 12012, VIDOLL, Phantasmagoria, Karen, Pasha, Dali, Himitsu Kessha CODOMO A, and Makoto from Doremidan.
(i dunt think i'm allowed to post this in the comm. But I'm just desperate for our beloved Mago to win --delete if not allowed)
Sorry for bugging the community.. I know it's been a while since LIN's As If Forever Exists was released, but I'm looking to do a card trade. I have Reiya, and I'm looking for KISAKI. If anyone out there is interested, drop me a line!
KISAKI is apparently in poor health again, so his doctor has ordered him to take a rest. He took this to mean “domestic shows only,” so the 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) live in Korea scheduled for 2010-11-13 and 2010-11-14 has been postponed. It's unclear whether the live will be rescheduled at some point, but those who want refunds can contact UNDER CODE.
UNDER CODE has begun announcing their yearly holiday lives~ First up is the 12th edition of the “session party” event series that features tons of sessions made up of UCP musicians. This time, it will take place on 2010-12-26 at OSAKA MUSE. The specific sessions haven't been announced yet, but they'll be revealed closer to the date.
I just opened the official KISAKI fanlisting! So go ahead and join if you're a fan of KISAKI, his bands, or his works. (I think there was previously another fanlisting that closed, so feel free to join this new one if you were a member of the old!)
Still old photo on Under Code's site, but
カレン (KALEN) just held its last one day revival on 2010-08-31. For a very limited time, the official web shop is selling polaroids taken at the live.
It was just announced that 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) will be playing its first overseas live in Korea! The event type is officially “KISAKI ADVENT IN KOREA,” and its title is Metamorphose. The live will take place over two days, on 2010-11-13 and 2010-11-14.
妃&関西貴族 (Kisaki & Kansai Kizoku), KISAKI's long-running session band, has announced their first live in years! The session band will be performing at a KERA fashion event. And this time it's comprised of Arc and ClearVeil members!
Dali distributed a new song at their 2010-08-01 live last night. The song is called delete delete, and, uh, if you find it for sale let me know because I'm going crazy over not being able to get it. You can see a picture of the please-God-let-me-get-it CD here.
凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) played two new songs at their 2010-07-31 live! The first is called Sterilization and the second is called Metamorphose. I guess one must be the hard, twin-vocal song, and I think KISAKI mentioned the other is ballad.
平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) will graduate from UNDER CODE PRODUCTION on September 30th.
Hi I'm selling KISAKI's "the solitude songs"
Once again. It seems like these boys are changing their costumes the most often.
For everyone that missed it I tried to type it up as the interview went. However this is not exact, or word for word. So I apologize for any mix ups.
Surely you all remember /KISAKI/ 復活記念特別番組 MONOLOGUE (/KISAKI/ Fukkatsu Kinen Tokubetsubangumi MONOLOGUE), the KISAKI memorial program that aired online beginning in May. Well, it looks like it's officially been taken off the air, as of June 20th. However! The program is getting a limited DVD release through the official web shop!
discharged today from the hospital, and so he will be appearing at the 2010-06-18 live (should be about to start!).
This an official translation of LIN's interview in SHOXX Vol. 209.
Someone asked me to type out the lyrics (Japanese and romaji) for As If Forever Exists., so I decided to do them all! I hope you'll sing along now! Enjoy.
Apparently, the official web shop found a few stray copies of some KISAKI books: seven copies of 喪 失 ~Optic in Vain~ (Soushitsu ~Optic in Vain~), KISAKI's last photobook + PV DVD (5,250 yen) and four copies of 地下線神言基地 -EPISODE:1- (Chikasen Shingenkichi -EPISODE:1-), KISAKI's blog collection + photobook (3,675 yen).
① The 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) guys have had new costumes for a little while, and today they did official photography in them. KISAKI posted a little preview here. And here are some other small previews: 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.
As the ultimate sign that Phantasmagoria's six years of activity are truly over, all of the costumes that the members have worn over the years are being sold, with the sanction of ID JAPAN. The costumes will be sold in waves, with the first three costume types being sold from 2010-05-18 through 2010-05-31.
Just a quickie: at their revival live last night, Megaromania announced that a new release is coming. They haven't announced what type of release, when it will be released, etc., but those details should be revealed through the OHP soon.
The blogs are still empty. After all, it wasn't announced anywhere that they already have them, it was just my curiosity and impatience that found them. Actually I just changed "undercode-riku" into "undercode-mizuki" and there was the blog, new and shiny. So, here you go:
Hey guise, just wanted to let you know I'm selling my used copy of High Style Paradox II on ebay [here]!
① At the 水風船 (Mizufuusen) vs. ㈲ネガエンタープライゼス ((Yuu) NEGA ENTERPRISES) live last night, ㈲ネガエンタープライゼス ((Yuu) NEGA ENTERPRISES) sold their first single. The single came in five types, each one having the same song but a different comment track. Each type had the same cover art to make it impossible to visually tell which version is which. But on the plus side, they were all signed by the band! The single was live limited, so your chances to get it are gone... Yeah, I know, kind of late notice, but they didn't even announce it until the day of the live!
Just a few updates on the KISAKI memorial program MONOLOGUE, which I posted about here. First, the YouTube version has been replaced and now has working sound. However, the new version is not as high quality. Second, the Bands@id version stream is now working. And finally, INDIVISUAL has posted it. The INDIVISUAL version does not yet have English subtitles, but they are coming soon. I'll update again when they're up.
It's May 1st in Japan, so the “KISAKI come-back commemoration special” MONOLOGUE has been released. It's a special video that will be airing through Bands@id, YouTube, the UCP official site, KISAKI's MySpace, and INDIVISUAL. So far, it's only been uploaded at Bands@id and UCP's YouTube account.
The twitter event had just ended and these are what among the members had tweeted.
① 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) will hold a special event at TOWER RECORDS to commemorate the release of their first single. Those who reserve the single in store (phone orders and online orders aren't accepted) will receive a ticket to the event, which includes a mini-live and a handshake session. The event will take place on 2010-06-17 at TOWER RECORDS 渋谷 (Shibuya) STAGE ONE.
*update at the bottom
All of this is old, but whatever, it's cool!
I think it wasn't posted here yet and if yes, please let me know.
KISAKI NEW BAND
![凛 -the end of corruption world-]
Phantasmagoria's last live is now over! Thanks to all the wonderful http://under_code"; .livejournal.com members who watched and chatted with me. Here's a little recap for those who missed it:
Phantasmagoria began a limited revival on December 31st of last year. Part of the limited revival included a 60 minute premium live to celebrate the release of their maxi-single Diamond Dust. According to an interview, the members originally contemplated embarking on a full revival after the live, but eventually decided against it. That, along with KISAKI's announcement to form a new band, means that Phantasmagoria's Diamond Dust in Truth ~新たな約束~ (Diamond Dust in Truth ~Aratana Yakusoku~) live on April 5th at 大阪 (Osaka) BIG CAT will be their last ever. This post is a recap of all the important information regarding that day.
・・・Mass Update Trilogy・・・
・・・Mass Update Trilogy・・・
凛 (Rin), KISAKI's new band, has announced their first release. The release is a mail-order-limited “premium CD” available only through the UNDER CODE OFFICIAL WEB SHOP. The CD will be mailed out on 2010-04-25.
① Phantasmagoria is collaborating with INDIVISUAL and USTREAM to bring us something very special. Phantasmagoria's 2010-04-05 limited revival finale live will be streamed live online to the whole world!! This is extremely special, as the live sold out long ago.
hello I'm selling *KISAKI's The Solitude Songs.- which guest vocal is Jui.
The name of KISAKI's new band has been revealed: 凛 (Rin).
This is random, but I felt the need to share! The Phantasmagoria cover story from Cure Vol.79 is really good, if you're at all a fan of them or UNDER CODE PRODUCTION. It reveals a lot of details that were previously secret.
It seems that 優's (Yu's) father died, according to KISAKI's blog ;(
March will mark the 7th anniversary of UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's formation. It's a huge milestone for the label, especially because that means it has officially outlasted Matina! To celebrate the anniversary, the label is making some very rare releases available via the OFFICIAL WEB SHOP, for a very limited time only!
① music japan+, the web-based visual kei magazine, has formed a partnership with SHOXX. One of their first acts has been to post a full English translation of Phantasmagoria's interview in SHOXX Vol.206. The band talks about their new releases, their brief flirtation with major status, how they almost made a full revival, and more. It's surprisingly interesting! Phantasmagoria's interview from SHOXX Vol.206.
I don't remember seeing any official announcement about this here or on the OHP (if yes, I'm blind), but I thought that I should post about it because I personally wasn't aware of this until recently
(and I follow UCP quite closely. Anyway...). Also, it might be an "old news" for some persons.
This is a recap post since I've been somewhat busy throughout the day.
① KISAKI has made an important announcement to all fans. As you know, on 2009-12-31, Phantasmagoria began an activity revival. However, this revival was never to be permanent. Therefore, Phantasmagoria's limited revival will end on 2010-04-05.
① Sort of old news, but Phantasmagoria has announced a oneman for 2010-04-05 at 大阪 (Osaka) BIG CAT. The live is called Diamond Dust in Truth ~新たな約束~ (Diamond Dust in Truth ~Aratana Yakusoku~). Here's the catch though: it's a “60 Minute Limited Premium Live.” Tickets are being sold at the special price of 1,500 yen, and they're being sold exclusively through UNDER CODE's mobile site from 2010-01-20 through 2010-01-31 (after which they go on general sale).
Hello fellow under code fans.
Despite most of the news leaking early, it seems UNDER CODE has managed to keep a few surprises regarding シンディケイト (CindyKate).
I wasn't sure if I'm allowed to post any news since I'm not the admin but... thought to go for it anyway. So, just a while ago KISAKI posted an entry concerning Arc's new outfits in his blog. Basicly saying that they have been photoshooting them. The new outfits look like this:
So, uh, those new ClearVeil singles I mentioned? Apparently parts one and two of an 8 month concept single release campaign. That's 16 singles if they continue to be released in two types! I'm seriously surprised right now; UCP hasn't tried something like this since KISAKI's 12 month photobook campaign, which was ended prematurely. I really hope the boys can turn it out!
KISAKI confirmed today that a new band will join UNDER CODE PRODUCTION on 2009-12-01. Details should be revealed on that day at UNDER CODE's OHP.
Aliene Maφriage had a photography session today (with brand new costumes!). The photosets produced from the session will be sold at the band's one-day revival on 2009-09-22. There are five sets in total, with each set containing four pictures. Each set is 1,000 yen, although all five can be purchased together for 3,000 yen.
① ネガ (NEGA) announced some good news at their oneman last night. On 2009-11-25, the band will release a new maxi-single, Haunted Jealousy. The band will hold two oneman shows on 2009-11-29 and 2009-12-06 to commemorate the release. More information will be posted when it's made available (KISAKI says the OHP should be updated soon).
At last night's 関西制圧2009 ~memory of Phantasmagoria~ (Kansai Seiatsu 2009 ~memory of Phantasmagoria~) event, it was announced that UNDER CODE will be holding yet another Seiatsu event on New Year's Eve. The event is 首都制圧2009~2010 (Shuto Seiatsu 2009~2010), and will take place at 東京キネマ倶楽部 (Tokyo KINEMA Club).
I'm selling artistic in black 2 feat KISAKI and tenten over here: http://silentluvphobia.livejournal.com/151137.html
① Arc's new costumes were revealed yesterday through VISUNAVI. Check out the costumes here. The costumes look nice, and the photoshoot seems really good! (So weird to think that it's the same band who burst into UNDER CODE looking like a rainbow..)
I've been pretty lazy, so most of this “news” is somewhat old.
Selling KISAKI memorial photobook from ID Japan.
① KISAKI wrote in his blog that E'm~grief~ will have an announcement in August. What it's regarding is unknown. He asks us to look forward to it and to anticipate it. Cecir mentions that he's excited to "lift the ban on the new information". Judging from this context it appears to be a positive announcement.
① KISAKI will be composing a song, ダークネス (DARKNESS), for the C type of Seven's first single, キラーチューン (KILLER TUNE). Seven is the latest random-ass project by ミチル (MICHIRU), owner of L∞p・Ash RECORDS, and is, for now, a collaboration with 真矢 (Shinya) of LUNA SEA.
Today in his blog, a notice explained that on Monday, KISAKI was rushed to the hospital after his health rapidly deteriorated. Upon examination, he was diagnosed with a severe case of Ulcerative Duodenitis (Duodenitis is basically inflammation and irritation of the wall of the first part of the small intestine, and this type has ulcers involved). He will be hospitalized at least three weeks, and at the moment he is in the ICU under doctor’s orders of complete bed rest.
KISAKI has been hospitalized after a checkup, due to a problem in his duodenum (a section of the small intestine). He's currently in the ICU and can't leave the hospital for at least three weeks.
Hey , used to be a crazy fan of Phantasmagoria , but thats in the past so im selling some Undercode related stuff .
① Auctions for brodiaea's and SIVA's recent distribution releases have popped up at Yahoo!JP Auction. brodiaea's can be seen here (it's probably the only way you'll ever see the cover). The price is already pretty high! The SIVA release is the special CD (Rudra, what I'm assuming is a one track single) that could be applied for after purchasing all three of SIVA's last singles. KISAKI previously posted a small picture of it, but the auction has a much bigger one. Check it out here.
Lots of news today~ Sorry for the flood of awesome.
① Some time ago, I mentioned that the title strip of The End of Missing announced an UNDER CODE PRODUCTION download site. At the time, I was unsure if it was still planned or not. Well, it's actually going to happen! Sometime in June, UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's download site, UNDER GROUND MUSIC will go online. Pretty cool!
just click me yeah :D
Sorry for taking so long again, it's not the interview's fault, since it's actually pretty easy XD, I just was too busy lately. -\____- Thanks to new beta-reader sama http://rukusho".livejournal.com ^^
① KISAKI announced some big news on his blog today. First, it seems that UNDER CODE is to have a new sub-label: HAUNTED HOUSE RECORDS. The label's first release will be a best album for the band FLESH FOR FLANKENSTEIN. I honestly don't know much about them; they're somewhat old, and the project of former ALUCARD vocalist 伊集院 明朗 (Ishuuin Meirou? Corrections welcome). They seem to be kind of a big deal though; KIYOHARU is to be the guest vocalist on some songs on the best album, and the cover of it was done by Rockin'JellyBean (who have done work for ROLLING STONES and other big names). Those who buy the album from the UNDER CODE NET SHOP will receive a special CD. The band's website for now is here. I'm not sure if they're to be something permanent like VAGERKE or if they're going to be like Deshabillz.
① According to [KISAKI's blog](http://ameblo.jp/undercode-KISAKI), chariots already have new costumes! They're doing a photography session with them today. The new images aren't up yet at the OHP (and they probably won't be for a while), but a small preview of them can be seen at KISAKI's blog.
① [From [KISAKI's blog](http://ameblo.jp/undercode-KISAKI)] A true final for UNDER CODE's 日本制圧2009 (Nihon Seiatsu 2009) tour has been announced. 日本制圧2009 -FINAL- (Nihon Seiatsu 2009 -FINAL-) will take place on 2009-04-22 at 大阪BIG CAT (Osaka BIG CAT), and will feature chariots, ネガ (NEGA), Arc, Dali, Megaromania, ClearVeil, SIVA, 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN), cocklobin, and a large session band. A DVD of three types will be distributed at the live. Each type will have the same label but different content, so that no one will know which type they have until they watch it.
Sorry for taking so long, final exams got in the way xD.
I'm selling a few Undercode items:
I started translatings this interview and here is part 1.
Lots of updates! Let's start.
Just getting rid of extra stuff I don't want :D
① [From Arc's blog] Arc has completed photography of their new outfits. The photoshoot seems to be a nice one (cool backdrop!), and the members themselves have some pretty nice gold-on-red costumes. You can see a small version here.
① [From the UNDER CODE OHP] More awesome news for ネガ (NEGA) fans: the band will be releasing two brand new singles next year. There are no types, every song is new, and the tracklistings are already announced. Pretty cool! There's also an official privilege; those who buy both new singles at the same time will be eligible to receive a special DVD of some sort. No details regarding the DVD have been given, but more information will be available in the packaging of the CD's themselves.
(I just checked the past enteries and it seemed no-one has posted about this).
I just happened to read KISAKI's blog today and saw they've decided to add a new member to brodiaea. There wasn't really much info on it, but it seems like he won't join until later this winter, around the new year [unless I read that wrong which is possible].
E'm~grief~, currently without a bassist, has announced that KISAKI is no longer providing support bass on their releases. In his stead, the lead guitarist, programmer, and band leader Yuuze will now be doing all of the bass on future releases. Whether or not E'm~grief~ will acquire a bassist in the near future is unknown.
today is the day i DECIDE i have to get rid of some of my stuff :,(
① Brand X has posted news of a few new UNDER CODE releases. The three releases are alternate versions of old best-of compilations, but they are unique in that they are being sold by WORLD TEMPTATION ENTERTAINMENT. That is the same company that sold KISAKI's solo album The Solitude Songs, which means that these new releases will similarly be distributed "worldwide."
2008.9.01(月) -東京-SHIBUYA O-WEST
① This actually isn't that new, I just forgot to post about it. KISAKI announced another memorial release, this time his last solo photobook. It will contain his "last message" along with 40 pages of photography (no word on whether or not it's all new; probably not). The book will come with a DVD featuring the PV for 勿忘草 (Wasurenagusa) (which was his first single as a truely solo artist), as well as an application to receive a ticket to a "KISAKI PRESENTS SECRET PARTY" that is to be held in the future. Whatever that means. Sales of the book are limited to live venues on August 30th, but the price is undecided at this time. This is a limited release; after supplies are sold out, there will be no more pressings.
① Megaromania announced their first mini albums maybe a week after their first singles were release. Well here we go again~ A new single/live series has been announced, before their mini albums have even come out. The new single is to be released in two types, each one featuring the same title track, which was written by KISAKI. (I know many will roll their eyes at that, but it's really a good thing; KISAKI wrote really nice songs for Deshabillz, and some of his solo stuff is AWESOME.)
If this is not allowed, then please delete.
① The UNDER CODE OHP was updated today. Anjyu' has formally been moved from the main page to the disbanded section.
① It has been announced through Brand X and VISUNAVI that there will be a new solo release from KISAKI. The CD+DVD two disc set features no new material (that I am aware of) except for more footage from the 2004 KISAKI PROJECT live in France. The special edition release comes with a photo booklet. Supposedly the release is being distributed worldwide, with only a certain number being available for purchase in Japan. Of course, specific details are very sparse (can anyone figure out the distribution label by the product number?). Reservations through the UNDER CODE OHP will begin on the 29th and will come with a special privilege.
Two new bands have been added to the UNDER CODE roster. Lamina and E'm～grief～. You can view their pictures/lineups via the OHP.
① As of May 8th, select UNDER CODE PRODUCTION music is available for purchase of iTunes. It's the first time that UCP has offered digital downloads and I highly recommend purchasing something if you are at all interested; strong support will probably encourage KISAKI to make more available, and it's a LOT cheaper and easier (the iTunes store takes credit cards as well as PayPal) than important CD's or even buying them in Japan. To make the deal a little sweeter, the offerings are iTunes Plus releases, which means that they are basically free of DRM and higher in quality without costing more than normal releases. It's pretty cool, very much worth the small price. Here's the info of what is currently available:
① The newest episode of KISAKI's bi-weekly radio show revealed another new UNDER CODE band. The band's name is Lamina and they appear to be brand new. Two of the members, vocalist イブキ (Ibuki) and guitarist 晄 (Akira?) are featured as guests in the newest episode, so you can see them by watching it here (you'll need a Bands@id account).
① Earlier this month, KISAKI announced that he would be composing the first revival single for Deshabillz (a "legendary" group that had disbanded in 1998). Well, Brand X just listed the single (which means you can now pre-order it), and it's apparently being published with UNDER CODE. Although I doubt this means Deshabillz is part of the label, it's still pretty cool. Since it's an UNDER CODE release, information is below.
① Tons of releases were announced through Brand X today, some surprising and some not. Arc has a new look and is releasing something new, and there's a new volume of High Style Paradox, the first in over two years!. There are also a ton of new releases from chariots (I guess KISAKI wasn't lying when he said he was going to push them to the top!) and tracklistings to ClearVeil's upcoming CDs. Heeere you go:
I keep re-reading it, thinking that I've made a mistake, but KISAKI posted an announcement at his blog that Anjyu' is disbanding. Yeah.
My roommate is selling a few things over [here]
http://img144.imageshack.us/my.php?image=p130rk8.jpg <---advertisment of that thing oo
hi~i want to ask for KISAKI chronicle and a thing released by him with the name "fragment voice"or something ?can you help me?TT
Hi~ I'm selling some stuff [at my LJ], including:
① KISAKI has announced one more memorial release, this time a solo CD (it does feature ジュイ (Jui) on vocals, but it is not a KISAKI PROJECT release). It's a single with three new tracks and one remastered track (weirdly enough, the original version of the remastered track was only released a few days ago). I personally think it's a much better idea than some of the other memorial stuff being released. Anyways, info ahoy:
① I'll try to bang this one out quickly. Brand X just posted news of two new Phantasmagoria live DVDs. Both will be fairly huge and haven't been filmed yet! Information to follow.
In order to afford to go to KISAKI's final live, I'm selling a bunch of Phantasmagoria related stuff over at my sales journal, http://geneizou.livejournal.com/. Please check it out if you're interested! I might be adding some more photosets and what not later on tonight.
① Surprise surprise, Kibouya Honpo will be simultaneously releasing two new singles this fall. Entitled EREKU Tousui (エレク統帥) and ANARO Gunsou (アナロ軍曹), both singles will contain three new tracks and will sell for 1,575 yen on 8/22. I'm sure we can expect a flood of other fall releases to be announced soon.
http://phantasmagoria.livejournal.com/ tried to post this, but her account isn't working right now. So here's her post:
① KISAKI announced in his blog a few days ago that both a Syndrome and MIRAGE remastered best album would be released this year. It's great news for fans of either of those bands and for new KISAKI fans. (Quick summary: Syndrome was a VK super group of sorts--it included three members from D, a guitarist from MERRY (メリー), and the drummer from Shelly Trip Realize. Their music was kind of classic VK with techno elements--something like HISKAREA. MIRAGE was one of KISAKI's earliest successes--they even released a major album, although I don't think they actually achieved major status--but its members went on to do a whole lot of nothing.) Also sad, because the releases imply that KISAKI really will be retiring forever. See the cut for more information.
I am a user of Fotolog and I found something.
Sorry for yet another update..but this one actually says something^^
Well both Rame and KISAKI updated their blogs, thanking everyone for going to (for those who did) and thanking all the fans and asking for their support for the 3 bands forever (Of course We will Rame-tan!)
Ok, I just had to delete the last post; it was already getting out of hand. Sorry about that. Here is a direct translation of KISAKI's situation. Please note that KISAKI has NOT been arrested, he has only been accused. And please, let's keep the comments fair. This post has potential to turn ugly, and I want to make sure it doesn't.
I just want to point this out before people start freaking out and clear some things up, since I've already see one person post about this, completely believing it to be true:
Hello! I am selling my Artistic in Black 3 Postcard Book featuring KISAKI-sama and Makoto from Doremidan. ^\___^
So even more releases KISAKI just announced on his blog :D
UNDER CODE has been going through a flurry of band additions lately! It seems that KISAKI is ready to produce another band, in the same way he produced Karma Shenjing. Here's the info!
More information has been released on the UNDER CODE BIBLE.
Wow. It seems that VAGERKE has really had an effect on KISAKI. After announcing that UNDER CODE will be publishing their new CD, KISAKI has announced that he is creating an entire sub-label for them. The new label, ROAD AWAKE, will be part of UNDER CODE PRODUCTION, but will sign only hardcore bands. Of course, VAGERKE is the new label's first band. Those of you familiar with Matina's history probably aren't surprised by this, as KISAKI just loves to create sub-labels.
Recently KISAKI posted in his diary asking fans to do him a favor...
Does anyone have the newest cure yet (The one with D on the cover)? If so, could you scan KISAKI's photo diary for me? I'd really appreciate it ^^v Thanks!
There will be delays in the releases of the following photo postcard collections. There isn't a reason given, but the new release dates will be posted soon:
Yay! I was checking KISAKI's journal today, and he's made another entry about Dari. Again, all I can do is Babelfish the hell out of it, but the important part of the entry seems to make complete sense. It may be completely wrong, but here's what I've been able to make out:
I made a bunch of icons a while back, just been too lazy to post XD;;;
So uh, anyone up for a bit of translating? I was browsing KISAKI's blog, and found an entry titled 「ダリのメンバーとミーティング!?」 (Dari no MEMBER to MEETING!?) [Dari Member and Meeting!?]. Unfortunately, the title is all I can make out xD. It seems to have something to do with the reason for Shunsaku "leaving," and more information about their revival. But uh, I'm just using online translators, so who knows. Entry is under the cut for anyone who cares or wants to give it a try.
As ラメ says:
Yep, even more news from the good people over at UNDER CODE! KISAKI has announced the cast for the fourth book of the ARISTIC in BLACK series. For those of you that have somehow forgotten, ARTISTIC in BLACK is a series of coupling photobooks which will be released at the rate of one per month, for twelve months. Anyways, it seems that this time, KISAKI is teaming up with a very popular oshare band! Speaking of photobooks, Himitsu Kessha CODOMO A has announced that they will finally release one of their own! They've also announced a--get ready for this--PV DVD, along with a new maxi-single! Codmo lovers rejoice! They've been releasing a lot lately, but who can complain? Here's the info:
By now, almost everyone knows about KISAKI's sudden love of photobooks, so it should come as no surprise that he's announced another one. However, the surprise this time is that he's announced to do a photobook with KALEN! Like all the other photobooks, this one will have 30 color pages. This photobook will be unique though; it will come with a free CD featuring 10 live KALEN songs. Because it basically comes with a full album, this photobook will cost a little more than others.
the new undercode band ダリ is not this one:
for everyone who missed it:
I haven't heard anyone announce it yet, so here's a bit of awesome news for you guys! KISAKI announced in his journal that UNDER CODE has signed two new bands! First is ダリ [(14)/Dali/Dari]. They've been around for a little while, and from what I hear, are pretty good. The second band is Pasyha, who I haven't heard anything about yet \laugh\ They'll make their first appearences as UNDER CODE bands on 11/3 at Bayside Jenny.
If this isn't allowed, just say ^^;;

Hi everybody ^-^
I'm looking for the Discography or at least line ups of the bands KISAKI was in.
Last night, I went to the big-ass Under Code event in Osaka (all six Under Code bands played).
