Kanon Wakeshima and her busy schedule in 2014

Posted on Dec 21, 2014

Kanon and her cello were extemely busy in 2014. She made up for the two years absent from her last single. The cute little doll look is gone, replaced by a sexy but still cute new style, from where she is wearing an Alice inspired dress with black makeup and bunny ears, to being the sexy nun with a gun.

Fans abroad

Many of us are from different countries and regions of the world, we have different tastes, different music style preferences, but we agree on two things: we like Japanese music and many of us are not fortunate enough to live or even visit Japan.

K-pop at Japanese culture events

Posted on Aug 10, 2014

Japanese culture events have been multiplying all over Spain in the last few years. They have been increasing in popularity, bigger, attendees.

On Japanese music and piracy

Posted on Jun 5, 2014

Piracy in Japan is something that is a much more serious crime than in other countries. This is why our views on piracy clash big time with theirs. I want to explore some of the key points on Japanese music piracy.

As I said earlier, it is illegal and prosecuted in Japan to download or pirate stuff. I’ve spoken with a few Japanese people about this, and even with Americans, and neither of them support certain kinds of piracy as much as we do in Europe. Yet in Europe we piracy a lot more freely than in other places. This is a fact, and this is why so often Japanese musicians (overall newer bands) are so concerned about it. To them, piracy means loss of sales, but not everything is just white or black…

This band played their first concert on October 2009 at Shinjuku, after which they quickly began gaining popularity. As time went by they attended festivals such as Gekirock and Bloodaxe, including nonstop tours throughout Japan.
The combination of deathcore and melodic metalcore mixed with the strenght of two guitars and the energic and everchanging voices accompanied by electronic touchs are the main characteristics of this band.
