Had to share these pictures of Toki from Aldious and K-A-Z from Raglaia. Has to be at least 14-16 inches of height difference.

My latest purchase, Zodiac - First (1990):

I'll share it here as soon as it arrives. Okinawan bands are really unique in that they have very, very good English compared to mainland Japanese groups. It's Murasaki's drummer's other band.

Recently, I've been listening to Rommel a lot. Digging their demos again. Shus work on the solos is great.

This will be seen as shallow, but I bet any band that put porn star Hitomi Tanaka on their album cover would probably sell a LOT of copies.

Guys... Tilt has just hit the studio to record their first album in over 22 years. I'm completely stoked, I feel like they're going to make heavy metal again, versus the hard rock of their last few albums. All they've been playing at their live performances since reforming has been their metal stuff. All aboard the hype train.

Meh. Now if they put Sora Aoi on the cover, they'd have my attention.

Good stuff! There's very little Korean metal on this forum currently, come to think of it. Do you know of any rare old Korean metal?

As for Metal from South Korea, I really liked Sinawe.





Sounded really old school, even back in the day.

Wow super cool stuff KJ and Dejv, I'm digging through Korean metal bands now, Sinawe is my favorite so far, it's a shame some of these are so hard to find. I'm definitely going to end up requesting a couple here on the forum.

Also, I wonder why South Korea hasn't picked up on the female fronted heavy metal and hard rock yet, while Japan already has to a huge extent. With all the K-pop, you'd think more bands would be inclined to try the idea out.

Female vocalists
Jaurim(Pop Rock)
Krypteria(German band has a Korean vocalist)
Cherry Filter(Punk)



Some Sinawe albums
#1 Heavy metal Sinawe
#2 Down and Up
"Over the rainbow" from #3 Freeman

And The songs that Deja Vu linked featured on 4th album called "Four"
After 4th album, they changed their style as alternative rock.

@KJ

Thank you for the links. I couldn't find the full albums(haven't been looking at them too hard also :P). I'm also looking for the 4th album. So far of what I heard, that album sounds the most killer.

@TadakatsuH0nda

I agree with you. My favourite has to be Tears of Tragedy, female fronted neoclassical power metal.

Btw, anyone into Tokyo Yankees? Recently, I've got their 4th album, and I can't put it down. It's great and catchy speedy/heavy rock n' roll.

I liked Do the Dirty, the only newer song I really became familiar with by them was Preemptive Strike, I gotta try some more by them.

I couldn't find full-album of Sinawe from 3rd one either.
You can use these Korea alphabets for searching further information, I guess.
시나위
It means Sinawe in Korean.

I've never heard of Tokyo Yankees before.
I speak Japanese. So I can hear what the vocalist says.
He talks like a punk, cool.
