Courtesy of my brother, Johnathan, who turned me on to these vids. ^_^http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3eeGTFH_Fo
Seasons After - Cry Little Sister; a re-working of a song from the original Lost Boys
We Are The Fallen - Bury Me Alive; Ben Moody from Evanescence's new band ~ remember how, ever since Gackt fronted Malice Mizer, all the vocalists Mana has worked with sound just like him ~ deep, emotive, & pseudo-operatic? Well, Mr. Moody pulled a Mana move, 'cuz this chick sounds awfully close to Amy Lee, & even has a similar look!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thbyOdo7bf4
Dead Before Sunrise - Crawl Back In; Chester Bennington from Linkin Park has been moonlighting with this outfit.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onssZDX804k&feature=related
Red - Ordinary World; there's no official video for this, I guess it's a bonus track on their album or something...but it's a cover of a song by one of my all-time favourite bands, Duran Duran! I'd never even heard of Red 'til my brother told me they'd covered this song.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lopTPrkE4Jo
Atreyu - Lonely; this video shows the band in Japan!!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-X5lbZi6UUo
Flyleaf - Missing; I already love this band, but I haven't gotten their latest album yet, so it was fun to watch this new vid from them...except it's so short! Good song, & the vid style reminds me a little of "Tonight, Tonight" by the Smashing Pumpkins, if anyone remembers that one.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DRXpbZMfG_0
Goo Goo Dolls - Home; lots of Asian goodies in this one! Not sure where they filmed it, but Johnathan tells me the bass player either lives or used to live in Japan.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zc8hbSM1zVo
The Killers - Read My Mind; I actually told Johnathan about this one. Gachapin (famous Japanese muppet-like character) getting into a capsule hotel bed with one of the band members at the end...priceless!http://new.music.yahoo.com/radford/
Radford - Control (no video, select it from the audio list); Johnathan didn't have anything to do with this one, it's the end credits song for the film "Night of the Living Dead 3D", a re-re-make of the original George A. Romero classic, which I watched at my mom's. This one has Sid Haig in it. And nudity. Nothing uber-extraordinary, but it had some interesting/amusing moments, & they took it in a very different direction than the original (& its 1990 re-make). I liked this song quite a bit, tho'.
These are my own discovery. ^_^ Some Phantasmagoria that I'm in need of, but prob'ly won't lay my hands on 'til I get back to Japan, since their stuff is impossible to find here. XP I'm just linking them here 'cuz I want to come back & take some screenshots. ^_~http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FvVxe8bPd4U
Kami Uta; the last single they released before disbanding. Among their harder numbers...but even so, Jun is being cute, blowing a kiss & licking his guitar! XDhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-oRZhN2Eic&feature=related
Past Sky; don't know if this was a B-side or another single or what. It's almost too "happy" to hear after Kami Uta, but it's got some sweet live footage. ^_^http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEbYU4iEMzA&feature=related
Holy Crap!! (No, that's not the name of the song! XD) There's an actual video for Actuate Eden!! How did I not know this?!?! Doesn't look like the same strip club from the new Vamps video, tho' LOL. XD Note to Jun: stop being so darn cute! XD
I'll post about my weekend soon!
