Hello everyone :8
When Japanese music is being discussed or recommended it seems to always be the same 10 J-pop & Rock artist who pop up.
But not everyone is into those.There are so many other great and more original bands out there who are being overlooked.
I have put together two videos in which you will hopefully come across some great Japanese music different from all the boy and girl bands/groups.
Hope you like it and please if you know any other great but overlooked japanese bands put them in the comments
...but a band that really entertains me no end is SEKIMA-II. I saw them the first time on J-Melo (Sunday evenings on NHK World/JibTV internet). They're J-hair-metal-gothish-hard-rock, and completely wacky and over the top. It's not normally the type of music that I listen to, but these guys really amuse me. Their album 'Akuma Nativity "Songs of the Sword" is available on iTunes in the US.
