As LIN parted ways back in March 2016, so did the two partners in crime - Sui, as you know, moved on to solo endeavors, while Misery...sorta disappeared. It was hard to see one without the other since the duo have performed together since Metis Gretel back in 2005. Now, it's been announced that the guitarist will finally return to the stage in August!
At the tail-end of their European tour, Versailles held their live at La Machine du Moulin Rouge in Paris, France on February 5th. Not only did the band end their tour there, but they ended it with a bang - specifically, a surprise appearance by none other than David himself!
Church-kei is SAVED...
👻 The LIN official web shop rises from the grave once more!
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!
As suji kindly pointed out, UCP lucky bags are back in stock at the LIN official web shop. I'm not sure how long quantities will last this time.

A quick news roundup before work. More to come:
Ok, LIN announced a couple more privileges for their best album today. Here's the final list:

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.
Minor news roundup for 2015-12-23:
LIN's the end of corruption world is now available for preordering at [CD Japan]! First press bonus is still the same as in the webshop (which means you can still get the World in Flames re-recording CD and the trading card too, but no personalized message), but if you still want that, then get your copy quick, since CDJ's bonus is available for a limited time!
For reasons unclear to me, SHOXX is participating with various artists to release special lucky bags in celebration of the magazine's 25 year anniversary and New Year 2016.
More details of LIN's memorial best box, [the end of corruption world], have been revealed.

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...

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.
A second track from LIN's performance at FEST FES 2015 on 2015-08-29 at Osaka STUDIO PARTITTA will be uploaded to the mine YouTube channel—and will air on Kyoto TV channel KBS Kyoto—for one week, beginning on 2015-11-27.

Due to a sudden family emergency, LIN guitarist CERO will be absent from the band's 2015-10-30 live at OSAKA MUSE.
Hi everyone~ It's Piyuchan here wants to share with you sales blog ^^/
Here's some minor news that I've been neglecting to post. (I've been too busy working on the discography section!)
A special session band made of ex-UNDER CODE PRODUCTION members will perform on 2015-11-17!

Here's the latest roundup of minor news:
The latest minor news:
The latest magazine and television appearances from our lovely bands:
Here's a message video recorded by LIN (with English subtitles!) in support of their upcoming [appearance at World Visual Festival]. It appears the video was recorded a while ago, though, as it features their old costumes...
The privileges for purchasing LIN's last single, Dedicate to Graveyard and/or their live DVD, Sacred illusionism have been announced!
Cecir (ex-E'm ~grief~) will no longer be able to participate in Cero (LIN)'s birthday event, Here's looking at me, kid VOL:2, this year due to family reasons. This also means he will not be able to perform on guitar for Cero's session band...(hope Cero finds a replacement!)
LIN will appear alongside other visual kei bands for not only one visual festival, but two this year!
I've been too busy updating layout stuff to bother posting news m( )m. So here's the latest minor stuff:
LIN recently put [two bootleg live DVDs] for sale through their official web shop. The end of the acceptance period for orders has been announced as 2015-07-27. If you were interested in those DVDs, better get them now!
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 released two new bootleg live DVDs from last month. The [first] features the band's Rame cosplay live and their appearance at an Ains event. The [second] features two dates from the Blazing Trianglum tour; including the show at which they announced their pause, and the show at which they performed in street clothes due to misplacing their costumes.
LIN has uploaded a PV preview for their upcoming (and last, before pausing activities) single, [「Dedicate to Graveyard」]. It sounds great, and the PV looks really good! (By the way, I wonder if/when/how they'll release the full PV...) You can check out the clip below and [and preorder the single here].
LIN guitarist CERO will hold his birthday event in December, at which his session band 「CERO BIRTHDAY SESSION RETURNS」 will perform. Vocalist SUI will hold his two-day birthday event, The Blessing Day, in January of 2016, at which his sessions 「Evil en Lucifer」 and 「MADEMOISELLE na Yaroutachi」 will perform. (Is it a Madeth gray'll cover band?! I really hope so 😍
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.
LIN's last maxi-single, [「Dedicate to Graveyard」], will be released on 2015-09-09. It includes one new song (the title track), a re-recording of Misery is Nothing, and an unspecified bonus (probably instrumental versions of those two songs). An application ticket for an unspecified privilege will be included in the release.
The tracklisting for upcoming omnibus [Yougenkyou -west- vol.2 ~Osaka・Nagoya Rengou~] has been revealed. LIN will contribute the song Missing Melody, which we've seen mentioned a few times before. Also, the bonus track will feature FEST VAINQUEUR plus all other vocalists (including SUI), although the song is TBA.
Here are a few upcoming media appearances (mostly from GOEMON RECORDS bands):
LIN has announced at their 6/24 live at Umeda ZEELA that they will be on hiatus after their live at Shinjuku Blaze on November 22...before then, they've also announced a new single for September and revealed their last look.
LIN will participate in a threeman with dieS and emmurée in September. Pretty strange combination, huh?
LIN will make an important announcement at their upcoming threeman on 2015-06-24. Hopefully it's something good D:!
LIN V. SUI and G. MIZALY will hold a session at Re;aL's sponsored event on 2015-09-25. The other members have not yet been announced. SUI will also participate in a session event on 2015-07-23 (which includes some ex-chariots and SHAPE SHIFTER members).
LIN will hold their 4-day Halloween sponsored event, Unlimited Aesthetic:
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:
LIN will be featured in the latest omnibus album from Plug Records West, 『妖幻鏡 -west- Vol.2 ～大阪・名古屋連合～』 (Yougenkyou-WEST- Vol.2 ~Osaka•Nagoya rengou~), which is due for release on August 5, 2015 and is priced at 3240 yen.
Here's some recent minor news:
LIN will stop selling certain bootleg live DVDs through their [web shop] at 2015-04-30 23:59 JST. The following items will be unavailable for purchase after that time:
LIN will appear at the birthday event for [often naked] vocalist YUDA (ユダ) of Ryuketsu BLIZZARD (流血ブリザード). The two bands have been somewhat close in recent years, since their [first twoman] in 2013.
LIN will appear on NICO NICO web show, NICO Visu (ニコびじゅ) on 2015-04-07 at 16:00 JST, along with Anli Pollicino. I'm pretty sure this program only includes talking, unfortunately. Still, if you'd like more info, check [here].
LIN has uploaded previews of upcoming maxi-single, [Memento-Mori]. IMO they sound really good―the title track is a fresh sound from them, and “Forbidden” sounds straight out of Megaromania's discography (in a good way). Interestingly, “Cross Pageant” appears to be a cover of the KISAKI PROJECT song Shoukei (憧憬). What do you think?
SUI (LIN) will make a guest appearance at the SARAVAH Tokyo event, かやアコースティックライブ 「CafeNOIR～かや、ビジュアル系を歌う」 (Kaya Acoustic Live "CafeNOIR~Kaya Sings Visual Kei") on April 14.
LIN's upcoming single, Memento Mori, now has some privileges:
LIN and THE BLACK SWAN will participate in KUROYUME (黒夢) tribute cover album, Revision Underwear, to be released on 2015-03-25! [Check here for the full tracklist], and check out these previews of the original songs which those two bands are covering:
I've added the setlist to LIN's 2015-01-25 oneman performance, where they performed a new song, Missing Melody. The song seems to be important to the band as several members blogged about it... but it doesn't seem that it will be released any time soon, haha♪
LIN has announced their new single \m/ The one-type CD, [Memento-Mori], contains 4 new songs and will be released on 2015-04-15. The band will reveal their new look on March 1st, kick off their next tour on March 10th, and hold their tour final oneman, Memento-Mori~Embrace of Utopia~, on 2015-05-31.
[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:
LIN has posted this comment video (with Chinese subtitles) for VISUALZINE VOL.15:

On 2014-07-09, a special session band comprised of ex-UNDER CODE PRODUCTION roadies held its first (and only) live:
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|

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.
Lilith has posted a preview of the PV for their upcoming single, Galassia. They've definitely improved their PV game, and the song sounds great, so check it out!
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:
Further lineup details have been revealed for the Musoukai (無双会) live event on 2014-03-08:
ex-LIN (凛 -the end of corruption world-) vocalist RIKU will perform with chariots-requiem on 2014-04-15 at SHIBUYA REX. He hasn't given us further details yet―is this a full chariots revival? one-time session?―but let's hope for the best.
Hello fellow UNDER CODE fans!
Long-running session UNDER CODE PRODUCTION session band Zaidan Houjin Kurojuuji (罪団法人黒十字) will perform in 2014―sort of. The session classically features dual vocalists Ren (ex-Dali) and RIKU (ex-LIN), but RIKU will not appear this time; the session has therefore been renamed to Zaidan Hitori Kurojuuji (罪団1人黒十字). Besides Ren, the session will also feature LOTMAN guitarist SORA and ex-Vior gloire bassist RENA.
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).
FUTURISM・BOYZ vocalist CO- is sponsoring a session event comprised almost entirely of ex-UNDER CODE PRODUCTION band members! Check out the awesome lineup below:
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:
LIN (凛 -the end of corruption world-) has shared a new comment video with Chinese visual magazine VISUALZINE. Check it out below:

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.
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.
Hi! I'm urgently selling these Vior gloire items:
LIN has just released a short CM clip for their [upcoming releases](http://weloveucp.com/?blog/&entry=new-releases-from-LIN), and it includes a short preview of their Royal /BLOOD/ PV. (They have not yet announced when/how the full PV will be released.) Check it out below.
凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) has just announced two semi-new releases: an album re-release and a live DVD.
Hello, I'd like to ask if you know anything about LIN's European tour..... the last one got cancelled and I read that they should come in summer... and summer is slowly coming but no tourdates yet. So, does anybody know anything? I just want to know if I should start saving money (
poor student is poor) or forget about it.
Affective Synergy is the solo project of ex-brodaiea/Synside guitarist LIN. He is the composer, guitarist, and vocalist for all songs, and released his first solo CD, Eternity Colors, last year. He recently filmed a PV for the title track and has decided to release it for free!! Check it out below. (And keep an eye out for fellow ex-Synside member kikyo!)
UNDER CODE PRODUCTION recently announced an additional event to its “RIOT GALE of NINE YEARS” live series, which celebrates its 9th anniversary.
Yesterday LIN played a new song "Insane flashback show".I'm really curious, maybe they will announce a new release on their one-man live !? (3.14)
Here u can listen the preview of the new LIN song. and of course u can buy.
Hi, I was wonder about if this LIN's song "地下線忠史歌 (Chikasen tadashi uta)" really exists and if someone heard it. This song is supposed to be the free song if you bought the two versions of -Independent "MAZE"- on the UCP Official shop as far as I know...
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.
UNDER CODE has announced a Valentine SPECIAL FAIR at the official web shop! What does that mean? Well, it means that special goods are on sale: namely, actual clothing from various UNDER CODE musicians!!
New LIN items are now finally made available on CDJapan.
The official web shop has added a handful of the newest photosets:

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.
I just wanted to thank http://inartistic"; .livejournal.com for providing instructions on how to register and buy the tickets for the Kansai Seiatsu Live Streaming Event. Really, thanks a lot for that!
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!
UNDER CODE PRODUCTION has announced some special events to celebrate its 9th anniversary! The event series is called RIOT GALE of NINE YEARS.
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... !?
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.
The winner of the free Kansai Seiatsu stream ticket is Seraphim!
~~Hi guys. I know it's not the best time to sell stuff, as you'll all be tired of spending money on Christmas presents, but I'll try with this ^^;
As you know, UNDER CODE and EnTicket will do a live stream of Kansai Seiatsu 2011~2012. However, they will only stream the live if 37 more tickets are purchased! If that quota is not met, the stream will be cancelled...
UNDER CODE's massive New Year countdown live event, 関西制圧2011~2012 (Kansai Seiatsu 2011~2012), will be streamed live for the whole world to see! This is only thanks to everyone who joined me in asking for it—our voices were heard!
i got some new flyer from the visual kei shops in Japan. i have still REALies, NEGA, Megaromania, Dali, spiv states, Kaiki!! Doubutsu AGITATOR, undercode countdown event, chariots, cindy kate, RIKU and KANATA birthday event.write if u need something more.
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?
Finally ! LIN is coming for 4 gigs in Europe in February !
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.!
Since the person who was interetsted in buying all didn't sent any money or is answering my messages for quite some time, Iput up all stuff on sale again ;)
I'm happy to announce that the WE LOVE UNDER CODE sponsored virtual live has officially been decided!! VIRTUAL SUPPRESSION will be held on November 19th (Saturday), streaming online worldwide through USTREAM.
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!
More updates from UNDER CODE about application privileges for several releases:
Great news! KISAKI PROJECT's upcoming single, LIN's live and video clip DVD, and NEGA's upcoming live DVD are all now available at CDJapan!! CDJapan is the only place to buy these releases if you live overseas. But hurry—quantities are very limited!
The official web shop has just added some new goods!
UNDER CODE has finally given us some updates on a few privilege items that were announced but never produced:
凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) has finally re-announced a live DVD containing footage from their first oneman live, an epidemic of “OVERTURE”. (Remember, that's the live that was originally held on June 18th, but was cancelled after 5 minutes due to a pyrotechnic malfunction—it was then postponed to August 7th.)
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.
Yay! UNDER CODE's annual Christmas and New Year events have been announced! First up is the 13th edition of UNDER CODE's semi-annual session night event.
Under the cut~
Hello, it's my first time posting here so I hope I'm doing this right, ^^;;;.
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!
What did you think of the first full album from 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN)? Please quickly share your thoughts in the survey below!
From 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN):
The first full album from 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN), Independent “MAZE”, has officially been released through digital retailers!
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!
凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) has announced the release of new t-shirts in collaboration with Death trap-ID. As is usual with these collaborations, the shirts will come in three color variants, 5,145 yen each. And of course, there will be different sets of privileges, depending on how many you buy and when you buy them.
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)
Official web shop group order
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
~to go on endless way~
I'm selling some UNDER CODE-related photos here:
it seems the first full album come with message DVD on cdjapan. [link]this happend with 2nd maxi-single Metamorphose too. [here]
I was originally going to post about 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) having two new photosets for sale through the official web shop. However, as I went to get the links, I was met with a 403 error! I'm not sure what's going on, but hopefully it's temporary. Anyone know anything?
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:
The official web shop just put a bunch of items up for sale. First, the photosets:
Hello~ I finally got my copy of UNITED LINK for JAPAN, and I really liked the new LIN song! So, I decided to type up the lyrics. Just Japanese and romaji, but if someone would like to translate them as well, go for it!
A new “UNDER CODE PRODUCTION BATTLE EVENT” series was announced today. Each event in the series will see UNDER CODE “battling” one of three fellow labels: DUAL CORE SOUND ENTERPRISE, Double River Record, and Planet CHILD Music.
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.
Somehow I feel like they weren't yet supposed to, but closet child has revealed that 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) will release their first full album!!!
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:
The first set of bands has been announced for this year's SCUBER DIVE. A handful of UNDER CODE bands have already been confirmed, and I'm sure more will be when upcoming sets are announced.
UNDER CODE has announced the shipping dates for most of the recent mail-order privileges.
Last month, I mentioned that Megaromania would hold a special live to celebrate the release of their upcoming mini-album. At that live, Megaromania will play songs from the mini-album and will perform in a bunch of session bands. Those sessions have been announced today (except for their names, for some reason).
For those of you who don't know, Affective Synergy is the solo project of ex-Synside guitarist LIN. It's not UNDER CODE affiliated, but we all like Synside, and I like LIN, so~ Just wanted to mention the project's first release: 1st maxi-single, Eternity Colors, will be released on 2011-07-06.
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.
KISAKI just announced that Phantasmagoria tribute live will be held this year! This one, like last year's, will be held in conjunction with VISUNAVI, as part of their SUMMER Masquerade live series. As with previous tribute lives, the participating bands will play Phantasmagoria songs, and a everyone will get together at the end to play 神 歌 (Kamiuta).
If you recall, the UNDER CODE sponsored charity live, UNITED LINK for JAPAN, had one more band to be revealed on March 24th.
Yesterday, RIKU posted some furitsuke demonstration videos for the 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) song Call back. I haven't been able to rip the videos (sorry!) but here are links to all four:
凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) has just recently announced that they'll be holding a twoman live with HERO! The twoman, PLATONIC KNOCK OUT, will be held over two days in June.
It has been suddenly decided that Dali and Megaromania will hold a versus twoman in May. A special version of the long-running Chikasen TOP5 session band will also appear as a special guest. Finally, a new band (featuring ex-brodiaea guitarist KEI!) will appear as an opening act, and there will be a special large session at the end.
As promised, the second set of bands that will appear at UNITED LINK for JAPAN has been announced today. (For information on the event, please see the original post.)
KISAKI posted on his twitter a few days ago a special interview of LIN for VISULOG. From what I understood it simply talks about how the members' got into becoming musicians and Visual Kei as well as their thoughts on LIN.
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.
As part of UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's earthquake charity campaign, UNITED LINK for JAPAN, two special items will be sold at the web shop, and all profits will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross. The items will go on sale on 2011-04-15. (Anyone who buys these items will be eligible for a ticket to the UNITED LINK for JAPAN charity event on April 30th, although that doesn't really apply to us.)
As I mentioned earlier this month, UNDER CODE PRODUCTION announced a charity concert to benefit victims of the recent earthquake in Japan. Today, UCP revealed the first round of information regarding the event.
凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) has decided to hold a 2011 release commemoration campaign with Brand X!
Anyone want to join an official web shop order that I'm placing?
Although the details haven't been decided yet, UNDER CODE has announced that it will hold a charity event to benefit the earthquake victims! The event is called UNITED LINK for JAPAN, and will be held simultaneously at two live houses on 2011-04-30. The event will be free to enter, although there will presumably be a donation box. Again, no specifics have been decided, but from watching blogs, it seems that most of the UCP bands will be participating.
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.
凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) has announced the release of OFFICIAL BOOTLEG DVD VOL:1, which will contain live footage. No specific release date has been decided (see below), but it is exclusively for order at the official web shop, and will ship out sometime late this month.
Here's the current list of UNDER CODE live postponements/cancellations due to the recent earthquake:
The official web shop has added a few photosets for sale recently:
凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) has announced a three-date, three-city, three-band tour. Each of the three bands represents a different region--LIN as Osaka, Lycaon as Nagoya, and UnsraW as Tokyo--and each stop of the tour will be in one of those regions. Some sort of “secret project” will be held at each stop.
凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) has announced a special festival event to celebrate their 1st anniversary.
Ok, just wanted to post a correction about that 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) lucky bag CD.
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!
If you recall, those who buy 7,000 yen's worth of lucky bags (aka at least two lucky bags) from the official web shop will receive a special 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) CD.
For the upcoming 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) release, Flowers Bloom, it was originally announced that the second song for both types would be fall.... However, it seems that the coupling track will now instead be Lost in the mist of time. Nothing else has been changed.
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 posted a bit about the official web shop privileges for the upcoming 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) singles. First, the shop will send them out a week early, so Silent To My Pain will be sent on 2011-03-21 and Flowers Bloom on 2011-05-20.
If you recall, the recently announced 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) single SILENT TO MY PAIN was announced as the first part of a release series, but no other releases were mentioned. Well, the next release has been revealed thanks to Brand X.
The tracklist of the SHOXX × UNDER CODE PRODUCTION omnibus Explosion showcase has been revealed today. Unfortunately, it seems like most of the songs aren't new or rare... Oh well. The cover has been revealed as well, and you can see it here.
PERESTROIKA announced their next live plans: a Tokyo/Nagoya/Osaka sponsored event called GLASNOST-XX.
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...
At UNDER CODE's 2010-12-31 New Year event, several special goods were sold.
Arc has announced their final live events leading up to their last live. First up, they'll hold a 2 day sponsored event. After that, they'll hold a sponsored event marking their first and last &ldrquo;triumphant” return to Nara. And finally, their last oneman tour, which includes their last live on 2011-04-30. Details below.
It's that time of the year again~ UNDER CODE has announced the OFFICIAL WEB SHOP SPECIAL FAIR, which will take place from 2010-12-21 to 2011-03-31. I'm sure many cool goods will be for sale during the fair, but for now, only a few things have been announced:
The bad news continues
UNDER CODE has revealed the participating session bands for the upcoming session night!
Ok Underko, it's that time again~ Those of you who have heard it, what did you think of the new 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) single?
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!
UCP sure has been in a photoset mood recently! They've added 3 LIN photosets featuring the new outfits to their web ship. [Click here to see.
SHOXX has decided to release a new omnibus in February to promote the bands that are building a new visual kei scene. The omnibus will be comprised of two discs (some new songs, some “rare” songs), and will be mail-order only. Those who order early will receive a cheki of the band of their choice (“main side” bands only--see below), as well as a special certificate that they can bring to the supporting tour, for which they'll receive a special, unspecified present.
Live photographs of several UNDER CODE bands are available for purchase through broma.jp and 7-Eleven. The photos seem to have been taken at the three day 漆黒のシンフォニー (Shikkoku no SYMPHONY) event at 埼玉会館ホール (Saitamakaikan HALL) in August.
Artwork covers for LIN's upcoming single are under the cut (warning: big images)!
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 arrived back home from LIN's performance in Meguro, where I got a bunch of Under Code-related flyers.
Thanks to Brand X, the full details of the second 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) maxi-single have been revealed. (And also thanks to the LJ community http://rin_jp"; .livejournal.com!) As predicted, it contains those two new songs they'd been playing live, but the B type will come with a third song we had no idea about!
Visualand.TV has posted two new 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) and 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) live clips from their 2010-07-18 show. They'll be available to watch online until 2010-09-07. (I'll try to rip/upload them for everyone later!)
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.
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.
Hm, I'm not sure if this is aloud, and if it is not feel free to delete this...
① 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) polaroids: you can now buy one-of-a-kind, signed polaroids of the members. Available types are a group photo, individual photos (except KANATA), and twoshots of RIKU with another member (except KANATA).
Click here to watch the 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) live performance from 2010-06-18! It's thanks to a new streaming video site, Visu-a-Land.TV. They'll only be hosting the clip until 2010-07-31, so be sure to watch it now.
Lin's PV for "As If Forever Exists." ranked on this week's (06/12/2010) TOP 100 on Countdown TV. For those who don't know CDTV is a very popular music and PV ranking TV show on TBS. Rin ranked #45 on the list.
I'm really not sure if this is okay, but I want to ask if someone could translate this interview [HERE]
Although this isn't related to UNDER CODE, many of you already know of the memorial event being held in honor of the legend of TATSUYA and CROW MUSIC. For those of you that don't know of it, it's a “super premium” event at which the legendary old bands of CROW MUSIC will revive for one night. The event is called GOLD RUSH EXTRA☆, and it will be held on 2010-07-21 at KYOTO MUSE. The cast includes 7seven, NUDE, 藍華柳 (Aikaryu), Crack brain, MYTH, LUAZY, WHITEBLACK, and n'DooL.
This an official translation of LIN's interview in SHOXX Vol. 209.
If you recall, those who buy all three types of the 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) singles can mail in three proofs of purchase and receive a PV making DVD in return.
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.
Ok, I've been putting this off 'cause I'm lazy, but the official web shop added several cool items this month.
I couldn't wait and just had to download (and upload) the preview for As If Forever Exists PV by LIN. I also made an mp3 rip (pretty good quality!) of the preview. I've made this a long time ago, but was too lazy to post it. So if there are some of you just as impatient as I am, feel free to download! If you haven't done so yet.
I got bored today and decided to transcribe the lyrics from the first 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) song. I'm not sure if they've been posted yet, but enjoy singing along if you've never seen them before :D Japanese and romanized versions are under the cut (feel free to translate if you know Japanese!).
Anyone who wants to buy LIN's first single but hasn't ordered yet? I'm hoping to find two people to go in with me on an order (I'd buy one type, other two would buy the other types) from Bands@id.
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.
I just wanted to remind everyone that the 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) twitter event is currently going on. It started thirty minutes ago and is scheduled to run for another 2 and a half hours. You can view Cure's twitter here.
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.
All of this is old, but whatever, it's cool!
I was stalking ameba blogs again and on erize's (kelli) blog I came across this:
To everyone who wanted to buy Phantasmagoria's memorial single actuality, both types are now for sale at the OFFICIAL WEB SHOP. The shop is also selling 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) polaroids and photosets.
The LIN comment is finally available to watch…But be sure to watch BOTH comments. They are different.
I think it wasn't posted here yet and if yes, please let me know.
