Let's see what he will announce. Maybe something about Ladys X or the "Endless Rain" Fan Video. Or the Album. Or the Violet UK Album. Or the S.K.I.N. Album. Or he get's back together with GLOBE. Or V2...

Common, guess wif me  8)

nice arrangement, even though it's not my genre. I'll never get used to Yoshiki releasing new music with other singers/musicians rather than X.

Another forgettable "announcement". As if I'd expect Yoshiki to surprise us and make 2020 at least somewhat of a memorable year. Check out these 2 articles on the topic:

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/st-vincent-yoshiki-new-york-1051313/ - References how X Japan performed at Coachella (glad he's still whoring out the band's name any chance he can while not doing a damn thing to keep it alive).

https://yurui.jp/yoshiki%E7%99%BA%E5%A3%B2%E5%89%8D%E6%97%A5%E3%81%AB%E6%96%B0%E6%9B%B2%E7%99%BA%E8%A1%A8%E3%82%BB%E3%83%B3%E3%83%88%E3%83%93%E3%83%B3%E3%82%BB%E3%83%B3%E3%83%88%E4%B8%80%E5%BA%A6%E3%82%82%E4%BC%9A/# - This one will need to be plugged into a translator but an interviewer thankfully asked him about the X Japan album considering it was 1996 when Dahlia came out. He basically says he's waiting for the right time and how it's tough when you cannot do a live right now. It's exactly as I said. Yoshiki thinks some magical moment will come by when the American music scene is waiting for him and he'll make a splash. That was 2010 but you fucked around for a decade. Honestly, just release the album and schedule some tour dates when COVID has calmed down a lot, give some banger performances and call it a day.

 I still feel like we're somehow missing a piece of this puzzle, aside from the usual melting pot of theories about management problems, distressed relationships in the band, Yoshiki not really wanting this album to come out and so on. Really, nobody can delay an album for such a long time... Nobody

Ok, another news about X member,this time Sugizo, he's doing an interview about his feeling during this pandemic, including his post on social media that made some people furious,angry etc and confused (including myself) he explained everything here

I'm always wondering what is Heath doing all day. He keeps so quiet...

I checked the Japanese Wiki voice about him, nothing new. Did the same with the official website, same result.  :o

is he ghostwriting songs or performing with another stage name?

we're reasonably expecting that album since their reunion, hence 2007...  ;D

however, fashion and marketing probably are more suitable to Yoshiki as his mind is probably going back and forth about publishing music (because perfectionism?)

that's as much as we can get..

The thing is,
We here at xfreaks have often been branded as bullies in the past. Many of us have been X Japan fans for ages and therefore wait a lot longer for the album than others. Some here have been following the band for over 30 years. Hard to believe, but that's how it is!

I am glad that others now understand us too.

Holy crap, the forum is still going haha :) Well, thanks for that comment on Youtube, I wonder if it ever got to him but his social media manager had to go the Japanese way and apologize profusely without any result.  Just saw he posted a Weekend live in front of no crowd video recently, was there more to it ?

And yeah, some of us have been hanging around forever (25+ years here..). I expected so much more after having seen their live in NY MSQ :( Haven't really bothered with much X-Japan in many years.. feel like digging up some for old time's sake.

I always get the feeling that he answers personally to whatever he decides to answer to, either on Instagram or YouTube. The apologies are never overdone and stylistically coherent to his usual expressions...

it's not like he's uninterested, luckily. The whole album thing might have been royally messed up but he likes to hear from us.

IMO, he should just drop the album on Spotify, YouTube and such, then start touring when this whole Covid-19 mess will be contained.

To gain traction as a band again, they might open concerts for other mainstream artists. But then again, who knows what's behind the scenes of this cosmic mess.

oh my  :( I thought asbestos was a relic of the past (except in remote villages and of course someplace in Russia-- they aren't afraid of the damage).

however, I just saw a clip of Yoshiki playing a soundtrack from the Frozen movie and while I was listening, I couldn't hear anything but my freaking mind screaming "I want speed metal again"  :P Good grief, I'm so tired of hearing ballads.

So basically, today yoshiki announced his Under The Sky project which will be released on December 23rd, besides that he also talked about his photo book and also a tour of his studio. One of the highlights is his thanks to Sugizo who has played a role in the X reunion. But what I want is yoshiki to fixed his relationship with toshl again.

What reasons do people have to believe Yoshiki and Toshi are still feuding? Didn't he and Toshi sue the new source that released that info and shouldn't we believe the rift was fabricated or exaggerated because of that? Yoshiki did state that one of the reasons recording takes so long is because he has to be respectful of other members' schedules and family life.

Anyway, I already posted most of this on discord but I made a list of interesting tidbits from Yoshiki's members-only portion of his birthday broadcast for those of us who don't have membership.


Kiss the Sky Specific:


He also made 2 Yoshikimono masks that will be released soon (one is red and black with black silk ties and the other is purple and red with red silk ties). His photobook was released today in the same spot he and Bill Gates did an X Box release in Shibuya years ago and weighs more than 5lbs  :o. There will be a new Japanese and English Yoshiki.net website coming. In about a month Under the Sky will premier and everyone on the chat was really excited for it. I'm looking forward to it too and actually think it will be quite a spectacular extravaganza. There was no word on whether it's going to be a series or an all-in-one event but the release date near Christmas makes me think it will be the latter. I could be wrong though.

Edit: It was just reported via Consequence of Sound on Yoshiki's Twitter that Under The Sky will be a live streaming event starting at 8pm JST/6am EST on Dec 23rd. Yoshiki said they are still working on the final cut but are very excited they can finally announce this project. So yes I'm pretty sure it'll be a single film.

I've written it on discord as well as other members, what happened to toshl and yoshiki is discussed quite often. If for example it is part of the Toshl contract, should it be like that,for example there's almost non existent X pictures in Toshl instagram,it's just like X is never existed in his lif
 And on the anniversary of hide's death, he didn't say anything, and this was the topic of discussion on the discord forum, but when he appeared on day's program, he wore a pink suit,I think that's his way of remembering hide. Some time ago I even came across a yoshiki fan's comment on youtube about this

So the question is what happened with Toshl

Kiss the Sky Specific:
  • Yoshiki said the song is made up of about 1000 tracks. He's right. I counted 37... of the ones I could see. Says it's definitely another Art of Life and that Art of Life also took several years to record.


Art of Life was written in 2 weeks (freaking surprising) and recorded in 2 years, according to Yoshiki. The first live occurrences of Kiss the Sky can be traced back to 2015, if I recall correctly...

...well, as long as I'm alive I'll wait.

Kiss The Sky sounds amazing! It is exactly what a reunited X in the modern age should sound like based on those clips!

Toshi's voice sounds killer, the bass line rocks, there is actual heavy guitars, progressive and pop pieces, and the piano and guitar solos sound superb. I almost cannot believe what I heard.

I am eating words from what I said in the past, we NEED this song!

meh...

nobody can convince me that their friendship hasn't been tainted.

Well, things are about to get interesting for this Under The Sky project. Marilyn Manson may very soon be in very hot water, perhaps even prison. Check out what's just surfaced:

https://twitter.com/search?q=%22Marilyn%20Manson%22&src=trend_click&vertical=trends

I love a little conspiracy, so I wonder if the sudden delay of the launch of this project is because the management team knew this was bubbling up? Who knows. Yoshiki is also the master of delaying/postponing so perhaps it was solely on him. Will be very interesting to see if they choose to not release this or cut Manson's parts out of it depending on the evolution of this case.

Oh this is quite interesting, indeed. Personally I’m not a fan of Marylin Manson, don’t even know exactly who he is so this news didn’t make me feel shocked and dissappointed for him but... It’s so disgusting, awful and disgraceful. Never inexcusable. I censure him.
This can be the most possible reason that Yoshiki’s suddenly decision about the delay.

I deeply hope Yoshiki isn't involved in this shit. He also has a passion for young girls (o/c over 18, don't get me wrong here). And maybe these girls haven't a completely developed mind. They are easy targets for stars to exploit them.

Please Yoshiki, stay away from that shit. Kick Manson and go on. This is clearly not a person you should be friends with.

btw. What should I do with the forum if any scandal is proofed to be true about an X member?

As bad as this may sound, I don't think we'd hear about any scandal with X members if it occurred in Japan. The MeToo ideology (which is a good thing) is mostly happening in the US, while in Japan, I think women would be too afraid or shunned to speak out. The culture is still far behind in that sense, and women simply don't have those abilities and voice in the same way they do in the West. I think Yoshiki should distance himself but they've been friends for a while, and he seems to be one of his best friends in the industry in the US. It's sad; Yoshiki can't catch a break in terms of friendships and relationships.

Hoping that nothing comes out about him. If it does, I respect whatever decision you make about the forum. I'll be sad to see it go, as I've been a member for over 10 years, and while I only come on here once in a blue moon to talk shit about Yoshiki, it's still one of the only places I can go to chat with X fans.

Fingers crossed.

I am 100% disgusted by rape, kidnapping, or sexual abuse, but I've gotta say this whole thing seems like kink shaming to me. She was 19, not 15 or 16. She knew who MM was - look at him, listen to his music, read his words - you KNOW he isn't vanilla. She stayed with him, got engaged to him at 23 or 24, and now she says he "groomed" her? Yes, it's pretty gross for a man in his late 30s to date someone so much younger, but at what age do you take responsibility for yourself? Don't get me wrong - if he actually abused anyone without their consent, he should pay and pay dearly - but it seems to me like nobody was held against their will. They kept working for him or sleeping with him. Maybe I haven't heard the whole story and I definitely don't believe in blaming the victims, but I think it's also wrong to blame someone for their consentual kinks. Just my 2 cents...
Also, poor Yoshiki! He has some bad luck for sure.

I did, and you're right - if he did even a tenth of these things he's being accused of, he's in need of some quick retribution. I don't think physical abuse can be excused by calling it kink, even though I know people who actually want that kind of relationship. He should have gotten their consent in writing, like any other normal person embarking on that kind of relationship. I'm sure he has good qualities too, and maybe those are the ones he showed Yoshiki, but hopefully Yoshiki will stay far, far away from this.

I haven't been following whatever Manson has been doing since, uh, the early 2000s? I thought he had stopped making musing altogether and I was actually surprised that Yoshiki befriended him.

Is there a particular reason why the victim chose to talk about what happened now?

However, we already knew that Yoshiki had postponed the album forever so I'd say that from the purely musical standpoint nothing was lost...

You’re welcome! ^-^ No big deal!

There are some expression like “Un, hmm, hai”etc. That’s called “Aizuchi”. Japanese uses this in the dual conversation and it means you understand the person that you listen. And because of this habit, many Japanese makes aizuchi while even if the only person who talks is themselves. That’s why Yoshiki always does this thing.
(But I have to admit, he really does it TOO MUCH :D)

I was waiting for a short “yOsHiKi mAStEr CaRd” advertisement by him but he didn’t do that. It’s a nice development, at least.

hahahahahahah.  ;D oh my. I just hope that there aren't any more sponsored goods by him in the future besides the ones we already know of.

right now all I'm doing is waiting for the 100th version of the demo for Kiss the Sky.
