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:

[Archived] (Updated Nov 7) Lots of cheap CDs (incl. Matina & Undercode) for sale

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.

Translation: Megaromania's drum design

おかむら准备室 (okamura's preparation room) is the blog of AKI OKAMURA, the head graphic designer for Matina and UNDER CODE PRODUCTION. OKAMURA's latest entry is about her creation of custom drum heads for Megaromania, and she has graciously given me permission to post a translation here!

La'Mule final live

You might recall that La'Mule (who were once a band on Soleil, the parent label of Matina) performed at the KISAKI PROJECT sponsored 90s visual kei revival event last November. And at that event, La'Mule announced that they would perform again during this summer. Well, details of that summer performance have finally been revealed.

[Archived] UNDER CODE 2011 Year in Review

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.

RETURN of VISUAL MONSTER minor news roundup

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!)

[Archived] Matina Questions

Hi! I have a few questions about Matina. I recently downloaded Lagna's "Replace of Mind" and, after listening to it, discovered that it was apparently a compilation with a band named Ring. Who were they? Were they signed to Matina at any point? They have no page on VKDB or Grass Thread. Did they release anything else?

[Archived] History of DAS:VASSER (continued)

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.

2011-10-20 02:40:00
[Archived] DAS:VASSER

DAS:VASSER has a revival coming up, and HIDEAKI has started a series of Ameba-only posts of his memories of forming the band. It's really interesting, so, although these translations are bastardized, I thought I'd share them with you. (KYOHEI has been mentioning these same events, but hasn't really added anything, so I've left his posts out.

[Archived] AKIRA has a new band?!

This isn't related to UNDER CODE, but we all love Matina, right? Well, AKIRA, the second vocalist of MIRAGE, appears to have a new band! His new band is called FOWR (pronounced Ⅳ). No details yet, but apparently their [OHP](http://www.iv-FOWR.jp/) will be updated with details on the 16th.

[Archived] UNDER CODE's 7th Anniversary

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!

No 10€ singles here, and every price is in USD so you guys can benefit from my currency's poor exchange rate :D! The relevant artists include:

[Archived] Get your Matina!

UNDER GROUND MUSIC just put up a ton of Matina artists' releases for purchase, some of which are fairly rare! Bands include AZALEA, DAS:VASSER, DESCRIBE, Distray, Eze:quL, GARDEN, LAYBIAL, Madeth gray'll, Mebius, Remage, サリー (SALLY), and Vice†risk. And they're not just CDs that everyone has; most of them are demotapes. It's pretty cool, so go spend some money on a piece of Matina history!

[Archived] ROAD AWAKE

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.
