    KLUE is currently my AOTY so far and GEZAN is really starting to gain popularity actually. And since I have seen almost nothing about GEZAN on MH, I thought it was a good idea to start this topic. GEZAN 2009~ noise rock, alternative rock, neo-psychedelia, post-hardcore, art rock... Mahito the People | vocals, guitar Eagle Taka | guitar Carlos Ozaki | bass Ishihara Loscal | drums | 2017~ Shark Yasue | drums | 2009~2016 Formed at Osaka in 2009, GEZAN (下山 at the time) got its start in noise rock at Namba Bears, a famous underground livehouse in the Namba district of Osaka, and notably obtained the approval of the masters of Japanese psychedelia like Acid Mothers Temple. The band's reputation is mainly due to the vehement performances which the members demonstrate on stage. After a first album Katsute Uta to Iwareta Sore in 2012, which tries to synthesize this chaotic scenic energy, the band is offered the opportunity to play at the Fuji Rock on the Rookie A Go-Go stage, dedicated to emerging artists, showing the meteoric rise of the quartet. Around the same time, GEZAN gradually began to shift the center of its activities to Tokyo, until finally settling in the capital. Gradually, the band changed its tone and composed songs that wanted to be more catchy, approaching somewhat the standards of the dominant music industry. The result, in 2014, was the release of the second album called 凸 -DECO- which turned out to be more consensual. However, the underground identity of GEZAN is not tainted, like with the concert the same year at Shinjuku Loft, a famous underground livehouse in the Kabukichō district of Tokyo, where the band shares the poster with Jun Togawa, iconic singer of 1980s and major figure of the Japanese avant-garde. The release in 2016 of the third album NEVER END ROLL demonstrates that GEZAN is now akin to the punk scene and finds uniqueness through the easily recognizable voice of Mahito the People. Although the album is a little less popular with fans, songs like wasted youth or blue hour have become emblematic songs of the band. After the release of a single Absolutely Imagination in 2017, GEZAN marks a new musical change, remembering its first album, with the release in October 2018 of Silence Will Speak. Besides the fact that this fourth album is recorded by the famous Steve Albini, Silence Will Speak maintains a strong relationship with the United States. The documentary Documentary of GEZAN: Tribe Called Discord released in June 2019 traces this link by following the members of GEZAN during their American tour where the band confronts the societal reality of the country through meetings with the differents people and classes living in the country. The result is therefore an album showing new maturity, moving away from punk and turning to more visceral sounds, while mixing various musical genres as evidenced by the songs NO GOD or BODY ODD. This musical development is a first step leading to the release in January 2020 of the group's latest album KLUE. True mix between rock, punk, dub or even psychedelia, this fifth album mixes heavy riffs with hypnotic loops, tribal rhythms and guttural songs. Like the "We can’t stand, we need a change" lyrics concluding the song Tokyo shows, this fifth album by GEZAN is also characterized by the political scope of its lyrics. As all the lyrics of the album available in English on Bandcamp shows, GEZAN delivers a message of rebellion to its listeners, a notable fact in a overall depoliticized country. In addition to his own career, GEZAN has also established itself as a major player on the underground scene through the creation of Jusangatsu Records, an independent label. Although the label is known for the production of the albums of NUUAM (project between Mahito the People and Ichiko Aoba) or those of the solo career of Mahito the People, the label has also produced bands like 5000, the hatch and VOGOS. Nevertheless, Jusangatsu Records' main feat for the underground scene remains the creation of Zenkankakusai in 2014, a do it yourself music festival where access to concerts and food is free. Held on two dates each year, the festival has become one of the major musical events bringing together the entire Japanese independent scene and demonstrates that a fringe of the music industry of the archipelago doesn't wish to follow the paths marked out by the majors and other mainstream institutions.

  2. These guys need a thread on here! Dance Gavin Dance is a post-hardcore band based in Sacramento, California, and formed in 2005. Dance Gavin Dance's music has been described as a blend between emo, post-hardcore, jazz fusion, progressive rock and screamo. The band has been through 3 vocalists (on/off) and numerous band member changes (on/off as well), and it's been a hectic ride for them the last decade or so. DGD's music has remained simply fantastic, being one of Rise Records best bands to ever grace their presence. Current Line-Up Vocals: Tilian Pearson Unclean Vocals: Jon Mess (He also raps in some tracks too) Lead Guitar: Will Swan Bass Guitar: Tim Feerick Drums: Matt Mingus Albums Downtown Battle Mountain (2007) Dance Gavin Dance (2008) Happiness (2009) Downtown Battle Mountain II (2011) Acceptance Speech (2013) Instant Gratification (2015) Mothership (2016) EP's Whatever I Say Is Royal Ocean (2006) Live albums Live at Bamboozle 2010 (2010) Tree City Sessions (2016) The internet is always in an uproar about who the best vocalist was/is.

    I was surprised to see one of my favorite Japanese bands (probably my second favorite active Japanese post-hardcore group behind SiM) was not yet up for discussion here (apologies if they are, I search 3 variants on their name including abbreviation). Fear, & Loathing in Las Vegas So - Vocals, Programming Minami - Vocals, Keyboard, Programming Sxun - Lead Guitars, Vocals Taiki - Guitars, Vocals Tomonori - Drums, Pitched Percussion Kei - Bass Stylistically the band has roots in post-hardcore, but have since further embraced the electronic elements brought in by Minami's sampling and synthesis to perform a wider array of different genres, incorporating strong elements of EDM, Jazz, Chiptune, and Pop-Punk and Deathcore in their more recent works. Vocalist So has been actively using hard tuning on his vocals since the band's first releases, but the band has since evolved to take full advantage of this sound, using less subtle hard tune and both mono and poly lead vocoders on his voice to achieve their signature sound today. Sxun, who typically has the least vocal processing live, does most of the talking and would appear to be the voice of the band between songs. So also programs and maintains his own vocoders live, seemingly through discreet midi signal controllers. My opinions: I won't lie, I initially started listening to Fear, & Loathing in Las Vegas as a bit of a joke, convincing myself that I was entertaining myself by listening to one of the weirdest rock bands out there. This outlook quickly evolve through repetition into genuine appreciation for the band, especially when I realized how they manage to pull off such a chaotic sound live (outside of the studio) and still make it sound fun, catchy, and not completely messy, which can be rare in their brand of chaotic post-hardcore, even without the hurdle of so much programming and the required punctuality that comes with it. Unfortunately I have never been to one of their live shows in person, though I have seen similar bands perform live and it leaves me no doubt that seeing Fear, & Loathing in Las Vegas' live set would be an amazing experience, and I've seen their Animals II DVD which only makes me dream of seeing their performance all that much more.

  9. as the title said, it's popular now that pop songs covered by those punk bands. eg, the V.A. Pop Goes Punk vol.x create by Fearless Records sth sth... and I really love Woe Is Me's We R Who We R and Hot N Cold. would you mind recommend more songs like this? except that Pop Goes Punk V.A. cuz I've got all of them listened to...
  10. so, I wanna know if there're any post-hardcore, metalcore, deathcore fans here... From my discography collections (about 1300 these -core bands'....).... My favorite is OM&M I think. Austin Carllie is an excellent unclean vocalist, duet with Shayley Bourget, another my favorite clean vocalist, the two voices together begin to produce explosion in my heart and make me wanna mosh up! The more screamo, the more I'll like them! and then, Mr.Bourget deaparted...Dayshell is a kind of clean vocal-based post-hardcore band with those three good artists including Mr.Bourget. Though the riffs and beats strike me rapidly, but I want more screamo like, not emo... really looking forward to Dayshell's 1st S/T full-length and OM&M's new album next year! favourite tracks: OM&M—— O.G. Loko The Depths Still YDG'N Those In Glass Houses Purified The Flood Product Of A Murderer Ohioisonfire When You Can't Sleep At Night (maybe the best favourite ballad from those bands' discographies) Dayshell—— I Owe You Nothing Not Coming In Share With Me

    Now I'm not in the mood to really write a huge in depth review or anything like that, but, I would just like to say that this album was my entry to this band. This album is the first thing I have listened to from coldrain, a band who I had previously avoided due to some pretty dumb reasons. This album was absolutely amazing to me, it had some pretty amazing songs: The Revelation, The War is On, Time Bomb, Chasing Dreams. All the other songs to me were all pretty good but not amazing. This album has some really amazing choruses which are just the highlights of most songs and I love that this album isn't full of heavy breakdowns all around, but it includes some pretty great, yet short, guitar solos or awesome melodic breaks between the songs. I went back to their previous releases such as The Enemy Inside and Through Clarity, my favorite song from Coldrain has to be Inside of Me from Through Clarity (it even helped inspire some new songwriting for me). I can definitely tell that in their new album, the drums sound a lot tighter, and the guitars are most focused on a melody than trying to keep the rhythm of the song with riffs. All in all, I have found an amazing new band to follow, some great new songs to jam out to, and an addition to my "Top albums of 2013"
