It's one of those things, I realized I didn't own anything by them at all and wanted to rectify that. lol
avatar
I agree they're probably a good one to do chronologically, everything's at bare minimum good, and then you see how the band evolved as their career progressed.
avatar
They are easy to find (reissued multiple times) and super cheap. I'd start off with the first album and just work your way up.
avatar
Alright, if I had to buy one Seikima II album to start, which should it be? Tongue
avatar
Damn it we just lost. RIP winning streak
avatar
ANOTHER 10+ GAME WINNING STREAK BASED STROS DO IT AGAIN
avatar
Holy fuck it's only the first inning and the red sox are losing 5 - 0 to the astros! Laugh
avatar
Wajima's ancient samurai blood woke up early Wink
avatar
It's funny because they're a decent bit younger than Loudness, Earthshaker, and that generation of bands. Ningen Isu, particularly Wajima, looks older. Tongue
avatar
How can anyone else even compete
avatar
Ningen Isu confirmed for the GOAT rock grandpas once again
avatar
My astros are so good right now; it's great
avatar
Damn it. Getting an awful flu.

I'm hoping to make it back out to Japan for Okinawa's Uchinanchu festival in about 3 years. Some relatives out there invited a bunch of my family here to come if we could make it, so I've got to at least try. Tongue
avatar
Amen to that.
avatar
Dear Japan, if we give you Babymetal back, can we please, please, PLEASE get Anthem in return?
avatar
I'm sorely tempted to see about getting to Europe or Japan next year and sscratching some bands off my bucket list. Need to see Anthem dammit. lol
avatar
I literally just had a dream that I bought keep it true 2020 tickets lol
avatar
lol
avatar
I really didn't miss the wave of one-and-done posters coming here to spam their garbage bands.

In the mood for some Wat Hagar memes.

Just another government holiday. Back to work, wagies. Tongue

Hppy zombie jesus day, and just remember: The religion of Piece targeted christians today in Sri Lanka, killed over 200 people because "Muh religion."

Happy Easter!

A joyous egg-rabbit day to all.

Happy Easter!

Dillinger they've definitely created some great music over the years. I'd say they've certainly improved their overall quality since that 2009-2013 era though, for sure. Agonymph would vouch for that as well.
avatar
Flashbacks. I casually listened to NoGoD in 2009-2013 and I didn't remember them being this good. Going to need to revisit their discog. FRONTIER https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZoPTaJzFmw

Blue Jays so bad. At least they won today.

Amazing, all OK. Thanks!

Try changing to it now.
avatar
Hmm, the mobile version werks for me ™
avatar
No more mobile page? It made browsing with a phone a lot easier, so I'm missing it now.. Tongue Also, the Lite mode button on the bottom of the page gives me a 404.
avatar
There is space at the top for an emoticons icon. It seems a bit weird having a link at the bottom. If you could undo it, it would be much appreciated.Smile
avatar
Yeah, I chose to disable it to cut down on redundancy. I'd also like to keep it a bit less distracting, so just click on the link to pop up a small screen of installed emoticons. Big Grin
avatar
Image icon showing up, but the emoticon icon is not showing up, but you get a link beneath the thread with writing saying smiley in brackets which you click on to bring up the Emoticons.
avatar
ironmaidens666, it has been fixed. You can insert emoticons by clicking the left section or underneath the text area (for quick reply).
avatar
Kinda cool, there's exactly 2,000 Japanese metal bands documented on M-A now as of today, thanks to a submission by billm99uk.
