New (???) Band - Devil Kitty

Related to the previous post, signed to Rockstar is a """new""" band DEVIL KITTY, fronted by the very sarcastic, and somewhat eccentric, Yuuga. As some of you may remember, back in the early 2000's (prior to the closing of Eternal) there was another band named DEVIL KITTY that Yuuga was in. While this band shares the same name, they are supposed to be considered two separate entities. Yuuga's also nabbed Majyu as the drummer for this band, so I'm interested to see how active SHAPE SHIFTER is with a part-time drummer.

2015-07-06 12:42:00

As of 2015-07-07, a brand new label has opened: ROCK★STAR RECORDS.

shall to start activity?

ex-Vior gloire vocalist/genius shall has mentioned that he will start up some sort of band activity on 2014-04-06 at Nishikujo (西九条) BRAND NEW. He says that he wanted something with a “name” (imo more formal than a session band), but something slow, with a live only every month or two. So it sounds to me like he'll be starting a continuous session band... but it can't hurt to hope for more, right?!

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!)

The site is still under super-heavy construction, but welcome! As of now, I would say that about 70% of the essential blog functions are functional—enough to start populating the site with entries, but not enough to abandon LiveJournal quite yet.
