Notice : Very excited to hear new music! Their 3 singles with the new members were very good! I hope the livestream will be available to be seen oversea!

Are you excited for the news? Thought on it? Let’s discuss below!


This is great news! Glad to see them back with new members and a new release. 2020 itself is such a difficult year, but it’s even worse for a band with no guitarists lol. Hopefully, their career goes smoothly this time.


Indeed! And they had such a hard time with guitarists, when both Cazqui and Daichi left, it hit them hard. Then they got Lin, but he was arrested. I’m just glad they are back, in 2014 they were one of my favorite band and their 2015 live DVD was amazing. Genesis remain my favorite song, as well as Libra (the original version). Like you said, I hope their career goes smoothly now, they deserve it!

I’m more into their older stuff too. GRIMOIRE and THE OMNIGOD are my favorite albums of theirs. Cazqui leaving was such a big shock to the fans though as he was a very notable and talented member.


Indeed, GRIMOIRE was a masterpiece with catchy songs and choruses. THE OMNIGOD had strong songs and heavy riffs. And yeah, Cazqui was an amazing guitarist in the band, he was really good. The things that happened between them, because of money or something, is very sad. They were supposed to released another DVD with them, but they left, so they cancelled it. I was SO looking foward to it. I wasn’t into their release with Lin that much, but the 3 singles they released this summer were good. But I still miss songs like Sphere, A bullet of skyline, VENOM, Aster and Punch me if you can, Genesis.

I’m excited. Nocturnal Bloodlust haven’t really released anything that bad and has been one of a few bands that has been so consistent with their releases (DEXCORE is another one). I’m pretty pumped for this livestream though. I’ll tune in.

Speaking of livestreams, despite how shitty 2020 has been i’ve taken part in a lot of virtual concerts this year - especially K-pop and i’m pretty thankful because there are groups who i’ve never pay to see because they probably wouldn’t tour in my area. So yes, livestreams are cool!


Indeed, Nocturnal Bloodlust is a solid band. Only release that I kind of pass on was with Len, I don’t know, it just wasn’t appealing, but with the 2 new guitarists it sounds pretty good.

As for livestreams, I agree. So much going on this year, and I took part in Coldrain’s one, it was amazing.

I agree! Lots of bands wouldn’t come to where I am also, feels so cool to watch a live!

So excited to hear the new mini-album. Only about two weeks to go. I’m not a fan of live streaming though, but it’s the best solution for artists to make a living and keep in touch with their fans these days.


Same, I really want to hear it! I like live streaming, but 40$ us is way too much for only 1 live. I paid around 30$ can for Coldrain, and it was totally worth it. 40 us is like 52 can, so yeah, I can buy the mini-album with that money haha.


I agree. I’m also not a fan of the entire livestreaming thing, mostly because of the price range every artist seems to be in. I completely understand the bills part and they need to earn money somehow as well, but for me personally it’s one or the other in most cases. Either the physical release, or the livestream.
And I already decided on the release a while ago so nothing I can do there. :joy:

But on the flipside it IS the best way for them right now to keep in touch with their fans without getting in dangerous territory with all of the rules and restrictions that are constantly changing in Japan.

Oh wow. If I had money for it, I would totally buy the mini! I’ll see if I can buy it digitally. A great song, love the scenary, the atmosphere, the guitar solo. NOKUBURA IS BACK, HELL YEAH!

Taken from the livestream. Enjoy ^^

So much strobe … so hard see.
