Kuroyume hates your pop star life, so much that he wrote a hard rock song about it. He even dons a trucker hat to exemplify such hate. A TRUCKER HAT!
Yep, 黒夢 goes grungey with the clothes and screams out their distain of POP STAR LIFE in the aptly put “I HATE YOUR POP STAR LIFE.”
Ironically, this song has a bit of a visual kei sound to it. Yet it does rock, so feel free to throw up the devil horns.
You can buy the single out now released 12.11.2013 with the cute kitty on the cover at Yesasia. Or you can wait for the full album to drop in January 2014 and preup at CDJapan.
Check Avex’s website and Kuroyume’s official website.
Shows before Bros! TarO&JirO take brotherly rock to the next level with their amazing guitar blasts. One guy picks like a fool and the other slaps his guitar like Miyavi. Enjoy “Snake Bite ～ Silent Siren.”
The whole video is just a performance clip, but it shows just how badass these bros are together. Look out for their album Brothers Fight slated for a 12.11.2013 release. Score it at CDJapan or Yesasia.

Takui Nakajima comes across a tad bit angry in his hard rock single “Get the FXXX out!!!”
I mean, listen to his chorus: “Get up. Get the FXXX out!!” Not exactly friendly. Add some crunchy guitars and Takui Nakajima is bringing it as hard as he can for someone with a complete babyface.
If you want a better look at the man, visit Takui Nakajima’s official website.
If you want to hear some other singles, Nakajima is releasing a 3 track single on 11.6.2013 at CDJapan that includes this badboy number: Get the FXXX out!!! / Dare mo Wakatte Kurenai / BEAT & LOOSE.
If the New Era is any indication of the future, NOISEMAKER will be part of the resistance.
So is the set up for the video “The New Era.” NOISEMAKER are black ninja types ready to save the enslaved youth forced to listen to god knows what in headphones and blindfolded. Good thing NOISEMAKER specialize in bringing the hard rock.
“The New Era” is simply a hard rock track, that saves it’s screaming till the end of the song. It’s no frills, but should satiate your rocking needs.
NOISEMAKER is releasing an album Double Color Sheep on 10.2.2013 at Yesasia and CDJapan.
You can make your own noise at you know where.
LOKA’s testosterone filled hard rocker “From Yesterday” is chock full of guitars.
Only half of them are used on the single, but the others clutter the set in this crunchy performance clip.
LOKA’s lead singer gets a little growly and the guitarists sound good together. Yet its the drummer with the half-shaved head who shines the most in the single. Overall, for your standard hard rock track, LOKA has a solid radio friendly single.
Look for it at iTunes.jp as it dropped in JUNE.

When someone is kind enough to send me a tweet to check out a video, and it contains GIRLS GETTIN’ IT ON, it’s in my best interest to relay that video to the public. So bring back some nu-metal or late 90′s hard rock with the band LOKA and their single “Naked to my soul.”
It’s a straight up orgy in “Naked to my soul” and lead singer Kihiro brought his video camera. If this video turns you on… to LOKA’s music, then hit up CDJAPAN or Yesasia for 01- zero one- released back on 8.8.2012. The video came out this February 2013 though, so it’s fairly new.
Go loco at LOKA’s official website.
It also just occurred to me that LOKA is teasing a new video too for “FROM Yesterday” so keep your eyes peeled.
Watch out for the ZION WUB ATTACK. Crossfaith drops a static video for “We are the Future” which is the first single off of their new album Apocalyze.
If you are lucky enough to be going to any of the Warped shows in the U.S., they just might be playing some of their new songs. “We Are the Future” screams like a mother, but it’s still that synth that sails high on this track. I”m sold.
I’ll be either pre-upping at CDJapan on 9.4.2013 or waiting for it to come out in America.

Basement dwellers LACCO TOWER are banging on the pipes in their piano pleaser “杏子.”
So take a bite of your apricot and let the juices get you wet. OR you could just rock the fuck out with LACCO TOWER.
There is a haunting keyboard that takes over in the middle of this song, sure to give you the willies.
Not sure if this is pronounced “Anzu” or “Kyoko” but you can find it on LACCO TOWER’s new album Zoku, Tanpen Shosetsu slated for 7.17.2013. Preup at CDJapan.

CINQ ELEMENT is woman. Hear her boobs roar over hard rock guitars in “Shining.”
Yes, female frontman Maju’s HEADLIGHTS are full on “Shining” in this sexy rock track. This is old school 80′s rock, like Lita Ford style, and CINQ ELEMENT knows what works. A pretty girl who knows how to fill a tank top, a big voice and some killer guitars.
If you take some time to actually listen to the song, this guitarist named KOH has some killer licks. We don’t get the entire song, but enough of it to know what is truly shining!
Preorder the Shining single from CDJapan out 7.10.2013.

Nekodamashi bring the thunder in the amazing hard rock track “Closed Door (Dear My Dad).” It’s been a while since a hard rock song has brought the rain, good thing Nekodamashi is wearing their Indian headdress.
“Closed Door (Dear My Dad)” sounds like something of the best output of Muse coupled with System of a Down with the lead singer of Stain’d. It’s that fucking good, and then it drops off the planet stops. Chilling!
This single was on last year’s Chie no Wa to Satsui released 9.12.12. Pick it NOW at either Yesasia or CDJapan.
Check out Nekodamashi’s official website for more you fool!
