« on: February 03, 2016, 06:08:50 AM »
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA!!!!!!! I don't even know what to say!!!

First they show the Documentary somewhere else first.
Then they secretly move the album release to fall 2016 (or whatever).

I'm waiting for the press release. Jeez. seriously.

General chat / The Big X JAPAN Dream Setlist Poll!
« on: December 19, 2015, 12:29:58 PM »
Alright guys, there's always a lot of talk about the setlist, boring songs staying there and cool ones disappearing. Sometimes Yoshiki asks the fans what they'd like to hear - but since it's just individual tweets, well, he can just ignore the ones he doesn't like and play WHATEVER. :P

So we thought it'd be nice to have a huge poll with every X song it and see what fans actually really like to hear. To get a reliable result (and maybe spam yoshiki with the outcome...! ;P ) we need as many as possible to give their vote! :D

So here you go! Vote and spread the word! ;)

News / XDAY, Video Message, Japan Expo and Hyper Japan...
« on: June 23, 2015, 07:53:11 PM »
While X-Freaks was down, X had a sudden fit of activities... o_O

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5-MFGed4uw

Yoshiki announced that they'll soon announce "XDAY", which is an "big event" and something that "we have been waiting for for so many years". Whatever that means. :D
Note that there's a snippet of a new song in the video message as well as lots of random London sightseeing spots...!

Also, Yoshiki announced that he'll be at Japan Expo on July 4th for a short special guest appearance (more info) as well as an unplugged concert with ToshI at Hyper Japan on July 11th (more info)

Noone knows if he'll announce the XDAY details there or just randomly on twitter or some website, though...

We'll see...!

Taken from XPLOSION ONLINE:

Huge surprise!! X Fans are used to long waits and announcements appearing out of nowhere – but this time the news we had awaited for years had been announced!
Eventually, both the New X JAPAN Album and dates for the Japan Tour have been revealed!!

The new album will be named „SURVIVE“, like one of the songs on the tracklist and will be released globally via iTunes on August 10th. There will be a physical release as well, in a couple of different editions, e.g. a Japan-only and overseas version. Apparently, there will also be a special limited edition of just 2000 copies, but details have yet to be announced.

More details will be released during an announcement on May 21th, 6pm (JST) which will be livestreamed on Yoshiki’s Ustream account!

There is also a message from Yoshiki:
„Dear fans, I am terribly sorry for letting all of your wait for so long. Ever since 2010, we have been struggling to put together a new X JAPAN album which will blow your mind. You know that we’ve been through a lot and had to overcome several difficulties. However, finally we made it and you will be able to listen to our new album “SURVIVE” soon!!

Yoshiki / "Endless Rain" Yoshiki Classical Version
« on: February 08, 2015, 02:02:57 PM »
There's one part in the Yoshiki Classical version that always catches my attention.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=e1pHxDHRHgI#t=5800
Slowly launching at 1:36:45 and really starting at 1:37:11 .

I don't even know what it is, but there's something enchanting about it.

Too bad that wasn't included on the Yoshiki Classical Album... >_<

General chat / What should X Japan do next?
« on: February 08, 2015, 09:22:39 AM »
There's a poll on what FANS would like X to do next on Xplosion Online.

http://www.xplosion-online.com/?p=3076

I have to say that i'm actually a little surprised from the results. I wouldn't have thought that so many people want a DVD/BluRay release of the World Tour...!? O_o

Anyway, please vote and share the poll! :D

Yoshiki / Yoshiki's health problems (2015 Edition)
« on: February 01, 2015, 07:46:35 PM »
Okay, since I can't find a thread about Yoshiki's health issues, I'll just open a new one. ;P

I'll make it short - according to YM, Yoshiki was adviced to get his wrist surgery asap, as half of his tendon is torn. That would obviously mean that he can't use his hand for some months - and because of that, he wants to postpone that much-needed surgery until next year. However, if he overdoes it now, his tendon might tear completely and he wouldn't be able to move his hand anymore at all.

.............Well, I could say lots of things now, but little of them would be nice. -_-

Yoshiki / "Hello Hello" new Hello Kitty Theme Song...
« on: November 02, 2014, 11:54:54 AM »
Okay this time I won't comment on the song at all because everyone is to scared to give it a try whenever I do... :P

Here is the song:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpFd_VrustQ


And here is some more information as posted on Xplosion Online (http://www.xplosion-online.com/?p=2565)

Yoshiki has mentioned his work on a Hello Kitty Theme several times already – now he finally played it in public for the first time on October 29th, during the VIP Party at the eve of Hello Kitty Con, which took place at Los Angeles’ MOCA in celebration of Hello Kitty’s 40th anniversary.

The song is simply named „Hello Hello“ and a mixture of Yoshiki’s signature piano playing, accompanied by Katie Fitzgerald (Violet UK’s vocalist), string players and a happy beat that does Hello Kitty justice is overlaying the whole piece.

“I am very honored to be given the opportunity to compose this song. I hope that Hello Kitty and the theme song will bring more peace and the melody of love to the world. I want to share this with my children one day.” – Yoshiki

After meeting Hello Kitty’s creator Yuko Yamaguchi for the first time in 2007, Yoshiki was asked about composing a theme song for Hello Kitty the year after. He dedicated the song to his personal friend, Kunihiko Tsuji, Sanrio’s Vice President, who passed away in 2013.

So started at Madison Square Garden's concert, there will be a documentary about X in the works...!

Offtopic / How have you been doing?
« on: February 04, 2014, 05:28:29 PM »
Since it's been a long time that I - and a lot of others - had been active here, I thought it would be interesting to share what we've been up to the last years? :D

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As for myself, in 2011 I write my Bachelor thesis and handed it in one week after the X JAPAN Europe Tour.  (I was basically working on both projects at once LOL)
Since I still had a bunch of ongoing projects I went about half a year as a freelance designer and was eventually employed permanently by one of my clients - YAY!
Now I've been working there for about 2 years already! Unfortunately that also means no freetime during the day and in the evening I don't really have energy left to do much, that's the main reason I hadn't been active here.

That aside, I became a big fan of (wearing) Kimono and had been active in the local japanese culture scene a lot, organising dress up booths at events. It's lots of fun (and work)! :)

Well, but now I'l kind of back to the X scene in my lazy evenings, yay!  ;D
