Hello! I’ve heard this is place to be! I’ve been on MH for the last 4 years and never made an introduction there, so I thought I’d try it out for fun.
I was first very into VK from 2008-10 and was mainly into the more metal-influenced bands like DELUHI, Versailles, the GazettE, アンド, 摩天楼オペラ.
Years passed where I was carried away by other musical fixations, but I started relistening to VK in 2015/16. I really enjoyed (re-)discovering bands like 家族, みるふぃね, 雛罠/early Ayabie, Clavier --in my mind, this sound is called 2000’s oshare with an emo tinge… but I also got heavily into early PSC artists, ムック, matina bands. I’ll inevitably forget to mention a lot here, but I like to think I’m a VK superfan at this point and I’m determined to find every morsel of 00’s VK that I can enjoy!
Nowadays, I’m enjoying looking for bands that have (1)singers with very precise fine tuning/don’t use too much vibrato, and (2)have a flair for the melancholy/saudade/wistful (or as I will lazily say: “emo”).
I’m not at all opposed to new VK, but I often am turned off by the production and tend to have a hard time finding bands I like. LOST WORLD was one of my very favorite new bands and I also think キズ is amazing.
I really love jp post-rock/math/emo/screamo bands (killie, sora, akutagawa, te, mouse on the keys, gauge means nothing, heaven in her arms, LITE, etc.), and overall am a huge music fan [tech and brutal death metal is my most listened genre and obsession for the last couple years] – so I really enjoy connecting with anyone who has a similar love for music
It feels strange having a new profile picture after using the same one for so long on MH, but it felt like a good time to change. To new beginnings! Best of luck to the site staff and hello to everyone
