So, am I the only one who doesn't like that picture? :D
Toshi's hair looks like a wig. :lol: However, the puppies (read: the other two guys) are ok. :D

I blew it up in Photoshop, but it's really difficult to see what's going on there as it's a low rez version. I looks to me - but I could be totally wrong - as if someone's decided to add height to his hair by copying and pasting the top bit of the hair on top and even added a strand across the side of his face. Hard to say though. It's not like it looks windy where they are, so can't blame that. Other than that, I think he looks great!

Yup, the hair is a bit funny... but I think I already mentioned something not nice regarding his hairdressers  :lol:

LOL this weird hair looks more visual kei.. It seems like they tried to match Toshis hair with the other 2 members

Thanks for the link. Hopefully they will put some music up there soon.

Just for anyone who didn't get to see it, I found some videos on YOUTUBE of Toshi with T-EARTH being interviewed. I'm not sure which part of these videos it is in, but from Part 1 you hear "EARTH IN THE DARK" and I guess the next track after that is a preview of this new project. Toshi's vocals sound amazing.

So is this eco-rock thing or whatever it is a real genre or one they made up? I've just never heard of it before and was just curious.

I'm really looking forward to hearing the music they make.

And I agree, Toshi's hair does a look little funny at the very top but he still looks very handsome! =)

I don't know if you guys know, but there is already a sample of T-Earth song on the official page - it's put in the clip of shooting the title photo
http://t-earth.toshi-official.com/  :wink:

Well and the song is... very interesting indeed  :)  I'm still trying to get used to it but I definitely like it  :D It seems like Toshi's "good ol' rock spirit" is back  :lol:

It's always hard to make out what a song will sound like even with a sample like that. Hopefully we'll hear some more some time soon because I don't know what to make of it just yet :)

Toshi sings a bit in the style of the X days, rough voice. I fear a whole tour singing like this wouldn't be the right thing for his voice, we'll see. I'm not saying I don't like it, I like his X singing, don't get me wrong. It's just it's a way of singing that can damage the vocal chords with time if not done well. :)

I just love his voice so much! Not sure about the style of music in this song, though, but with him singing...

lol same here. I was like wtf...Toshi sounds like Steven Tyler.
But overall, his voice is quite good there. He should save some of that screaming for X :P

I'm sure he knows about that very well, he's a professional musician/vocalist after all. If you watch Night Of Creation, you'll see that Yoshiki makes a few screams like "WE ARE, WE ARE" and he's hoarse before the end of the concert. Toshi keeps screaming in between almost every single song and his voice is just like normal when they leave the stage. It's all about doing it the right way and Toshi is very well aware that you need to put the pressure from your belly and not your throat.

This song didn't appeal that much to me but I _really_ hope to see more of this vocal style!!

Yeah, his voice in those concerts was great. I mean, he really screamed, and screamed, and after three days, he was at the same level or better at the last night. I remember one or two screams he did in Orgasm I think, really high ones. He's a trained singer so I suppose he does it in the right way, yes.
