Hi Undercode fans!
Hi Under Code fans ^_^
Hi Undercode fans,
Hi dear UnderCode fans!
Hi Under Code fans,
Hi Under Code fans,
Hi Under Code fans,
Apparently VAGERKE disbanded last night, at their 2010-12-05 sponsored event ROAD AWAKE vol.8. It was their 10 year anniversary...
All of this is old, but whatever, it's cool!
・・・Mass Update Trilogy・・・
I was browsing the OHP and discovered that UCP posted some flyers on the "Artist News" page for some of the bands~!
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 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.
Hi~ I'm selling some stuff [at my LJ], including:
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.
On Valentine's Day (surprise surprise), Bands@id and UNDER CODE will release a joint DVD. The fourth in a series, Bands Shock DVD Vol.4 ~日本制圧完全版~ [~Nihon Seiatsu Kanzen Ban~] will contain live clips from.. pretty much everyone. Included in the DVD are: Phantasmagoria, ヴィドール [VIDOLL], 12012, 秘密結社コドモA [Himitsu Kessha CODOMO A], SIVA, Pashya, ダリ [Dali], Arc, hurts, ネガ [NEGA], VAGERKE, Deflina Ma'riage, 音鬼 [Oto Oni], SOUND OF SILENCE, and SERPENT. In similar news, the tracklisting for Decadence2007 has finally been announced.
- ROAD AWAKE: Ok, this will be the first and the last time any ROAD AWAKE news is posted here. http://mental_orgasm.livejournal.com/ and I have created a community for UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's hard core/heavy metal sublabel, ROAD AWAKE. Honestly, there's not much there at the moment, but there's not a whole lot that can be put up! In any case, any upcoming news about the sublabel will be featured at its community. If you want to keep up with VAGERKE and any future additions, make sure to join!
Well, I hope you all liked Arc. Their move to UNDER CODE PRODUCTION is now official! They've got a slew of releases planned, and are poised to have the biggest debut of any UNDER CODE band (including Phantasmagoria!). Anyways, here's the UNDER CODE news and updated release schedule:
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.
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.
