I never took the time to introduce myself back when I was on TW/MH, rarely posting anything. I’m not really an active member, nor I’m into VK these days since my fav bands ain’t active anymore. BUT lemme introduce myself as a vocalist.
I’m Void, vocalist of a metal band called INWARD. If you need me to describe our sound, we’re merging to our melodic base our most extreme death touches and our metalcore influences for a sound free of any restrictive case.
As a +30 yo VK listener, I started with old DEG around 2004 and grew up with Kyo being my main vocal influence (well, our band name is taken from “INWARD SCREAM”).
Then, I started to listen to new extreme bands like MAKE THEM SUFFER (Neverbloom ), or on a japanese side, SHATTER SILENCE.
Lately, I used to listen to DIMLIM, Deviloof, DEXCORE, THE DESPERADO.
Looks like I need the D in my life (aside from the joke, D/Daichi was the singer of SHATTER SILENCE, which have stopped their activities, and my fav regular metal vocalist)
On a personal note, my fav VK band still remains deadman.
A lot of ppl told me that there’s a very present DEG vocal touch in our first song Dimlight. Well, lemme know if there’s anything you enjoy
Thanks for the feedback mates! Glad you like it as it’s been years I’m working on those whistle screams
@Rena I’m always open to discover new bands I used to listen to a loooot of different visual bands back in the days when it was still a thing (well, when it was my thing, I don’t find myself in the vk scene anymore), guess I only listen to bands that fit my vocal style today.
It’s kinda funny because outside of the vk scene, I’m more into alternative rock, pop/punk, electronic (dark wave, synthwave, synthpop, chill, etc), hip-hop and weird stuff than into metal.
If you would be a girl, people would accuse you now of being into visual kei for the handsome guys
For non visual bands, maybe try Graupel, Earthists, Sable Hills or Prompts. (I probably recommend the exact same bands to everyone on here i am sorry)
I know that the dimlim, dexcore and deviloor, all played together with thise bands i did list, so they are Similar soundwise.
I already am everyday into metal with my band, so when I want to listen to something on a break, I pick softer stuff… there are days I even put kpop in my playlist.
@Rena Thanks! Except EARTHISTS., I already knew the bands you’re recommending me, but that’s exactly the shit I like! That new metalcore emergence took the place that VK had in my heart (many) years ago. The last Prompts is dope! You should try FILL THE VOID, they’re even dopest
@Valentine_CW Heeey bro I KNOW YOU! While listening to Saki Rose’s DEG covers I found your band weeks ago and I remember all the guests on vocals! Your album is sick for a first one! Glad you like what we’re doing! Thanks for your support I hope you’ll find a great vocalist to fit, so that we’ll be able to share a stage someday, that would be AWESOME!
