I've never really heard anything from Mikio, other than a compilation video. Anything you'd recommend to check out? When I was looking for those videos all that came up was Babymetal stuff.

this is probably my favorite.

He was so damn good, and so clever with the whammy bar. He uses it very musically almost like a B Bender.

IDK, Japan has some very talented people but they often just seem like well formed unoriginal copies. They also seem to not quite get how to blend those talents into a tasteful act. It's like taking grilled shrimp that you love and chocolate ice cream that you also love and thinking they would be great together in the same bowl.

I see that in every country though. :shrug:

The Japanese bands I like I tend to think are very good and doing something a lot more interesting than I see happening here.




In general I've found the vast majority of the music made in the USA for the past 20 years to be boring or terrible. It's just ... homogenized generic crap, for the most part. More of the same.

Much like Hollywoods movies.


all the drum beats and sounds sound exactly the same.

It's all computer music these days I guess. Just... crap.

Thanks for making me google her.
It was a bumpy ride.

A tip, watch more Japanese Superhero shows.

that Babymetal Distortion video... getting serious Berserk Eclipse vibes off that. Must be the red skies:

Watch enough Japanese superhero shows, and you get plenty of research material in terms of some heroes and villains for hot japanese chicks.

@SteveGangi

proof that the drummer is a machine and that Japan builds robots..


listen to those feet, they're exactly as fast and consistent as the studio recording,.. and he's not even breaking a sweat. :shock:

I'm listening to a lot of different foreign music lately.
Current music.
And liking a lot of it.

Latin
Asian
Russians can really rock!


All because music production in North America right now sucks sweaty balls.
