Gladly I will - Japanese, end of explanation.


#172

Haha no, for real.

Who are these guys? Why the fancy clothes? Why the makeup?

I’m not a metal fan but I quite like this. It’s weirdly compelling.

Usually, every sub genre in rock and metal music is tied to particular look and what not that was established by mainly the bands that managed to blow up the newly made sub genres.

I know it’s not the appropriate thread, but I will give few examples

Examples

and many many more …

After all that you have Japan… Japanese something-whatever and they have their own “laws” for style and whatever they do as music like in every other aspect of their existence … Unexplained to the rest of the human world.

I see nothing particularly strange that require explanation. The main guy is dressed in traditional Japanese garb and plays metal. Most if any ‘weirdness’ I see is mostly western metal style and theatrics, the makeup, the headbanging the occasional tongue wiggling and such comes through mostly everywhere metal is played.

Though I guess it clashes a bit with the fancy Japanese clothes, but then so does the music anyway. They’re pretty good at it too.


#176

I fully agree with Fraggles.

In addition to that…

There are two things I immediately think of when I see the bassit’s makeup:

  1. Kabuki theatre which is traditional Japanese theatre where they use similar makeup
  2. Corpse paint which is widely used by death and black metal bands

I think it’s ingenious that the bassist is wearing it, especially with his facial expressions. Can’t think of anything that combines metal and japan in a more elegant way :smiley:

And thanks for sharing, it’s awesome! :slight_smile:

head bang

Yes, I like this better by far. The Cranberries lead’s voice crawls under my skin after a while, talented as she is, dude I loves this! :heart:


#178

Nope, Breaking Benjamin are my humans. ^^


#179

when you’re listening to BB on YT and get a chrono notification about the very same… o.0
spooky


#180

As far as Japanese bands go this lot seem tame…the Visual Kei scene will blow your mind. In this instance I think the kimono thing is a gimmick, and they seem to have more in common with a band like Kiss than your standard corpse paint wearing church burners.

They’re quite groovy though…

i’d play a video game that looks like that :+1: the song is nice, but what I enjoyed the most is the weird setting + how shabby everything looks. Contrasts heavily with most new music videos that I see on YouTube. Maybe it’s just because of my music preferences, but most videos look so perfectly polished, and that’s nice, but it’s cool to see a unique texture from time to time.

Michael Kiwanuka is bae :yellow_heart:

:rainbow: I’ll keep keeping this thread alive, folks, and no one can stop me. :rainbow:

OK, now for a brief story:

I discovered Branko in 2017, and I’ve been in love with his work ever since. I run to his tracks, and he could do the soundtrack of my bloody life. Here’s some background on him:

João Barbosa, commonly known as Branko, is a Portuguese DJ and producer who first became known as part of the Buraka som Sistema.

Now, I love the Portuguese rapper and DJ scene, I really do. And this dude has a kind of “Brazilian beat” going on in his tracks, derived from both our and African funk and stuff. He works with international artists and he’s just… amazing.

So here’s him with lit Dino d’Santiago saying

I want new blood
to trace my life
in a new path
I'm gonna trace my life

@Enki @Agetime @Silk can you hear that sick beat? He has also collaborated with some of ours, like Mallu Magalhães, who’s voice I love:

@NICK9X9 might also enjoy his work, and perhaps @KittiBear based on what she shared before…?

INDULGE ME PEOPLE, OK BIE
