Yes you have read it right,
Even if it’s April 1, fools day, it’s not a joke.
When I started I actually wanted to proof that VKEI isn’t dead as so many people say it is.
Bands still release a lot, many new bands appear, also bands disband but we get 1-2 bands in return for every disbanded band. So HELL no VKEI isn’t dead. Of course it would be nice to have a damn big list what was released in 2017. However I also have a REAL LIFE. Of course I do love visual kei and Japanese music but it simply takes too many hours to keep it up all day and I get more busy with my real jobs and real life bit by bit everyday again. Which belongs also to a part of the visual kei world.
However please don’t grieve to much, we all know where to find vkei news.
Also once a while I also will write for Japanese music strike.

I will also stop with vkei konkon, even it’s fun to check up those new bands and to share the sad news if a band disbands or goes on a break.  it’s also a bit too much to add on my real life schedule. Also I’m not really interested myself in to check out (the) new bands.

For those who looked forward to check up my release schedule each time, I’m sorry.
However I hope you keep up reading my stuff on JapaneseMusicStrike! If I think a band is interesting I will surely post their release news over there.
I think I will find some joy again, with making this decision to write some reviews again. And finally finding some time too to learn up more Japanese.

Bands I higly love myself:
DEVIZE
MERRY BADEND
REIREI
THE NOSTRADAMNZ
NEIN
YUMELEEP
ACID BLACK CHERRY
NEXTRADE
THE DOGGY PADDLE
E.T
…….and some more for sure.

And as always if you want to become a write too, be free to contact me, I will be happy to publish your love too.
