Passcode members are BABYMETAL fans!!

PassCode is a new kakwaii metal band with 4 young japanese girls named: Kurohara yu-ri, Takashima Kaede, Imada Yuna and Minami Nao.

Musically PASSCODE mixes Rock, Heavy Metal and Idol elements together, while not to the level of BABYMETAL, PASSCODE style works for them. Strong points for PASSCODE include a unit that is good singers and creative when acting in videos. In short they enjoy using comedy to get across stories.

If you like high-energy, rock/metal groups that balances metal and Idol together then PASSCODE should be on your list.

FRUITPOCHETTE: Idol Metal`s Next Rising Power

Japanese Idol Metal and Idol Hard Rock is in full bloom with dozens of groups picking up their Idol flags of war and claiming that this genre is more than just about BABYMETAL.

FRUITPOCHETTE

Of the Idol Metal next wave groups that are currently active, the one most ready to join BABYMETAL on the world stage is FRUITPOCHETTE. Unlike BABYMETAL that mixes JPop and Metal together, there is nothing pop about FRUITPOCHETTE.

FRUITPOCHETTE, a subgroups from Hime Kyun Fruit Kan (Himekyun), made their debut in 2012 under the name FruPoche, before changing their name in summer 2013 to FRUITPOCHETTE.

The group is a duo consisting of Teratani Mina and Azumi Shiori; both are currently 19 years old and they view their style as harder than nails Idol Metal. There is no guessing what these girls want to do with their songs, you won`t find a track that jumps around from genre to genre, instead it`s pure to its core and will make any band or musician take notice.
FRUITPOCHETTE has spent much of this year touring with heavy metal bands and the one off Idol festival live and is building a growing following across Japan.

fruitpochette2

If FRUITPOCHETTE can get the same buzz without the economics that BABYMETAL enjoy behind them, then we could soon be looking at the next Idol Metal group to hit international success.
If you want to follow an Idol Metal group that is truer to what you find in traditional Metal, give FRUITPOCHETTE a try and open mind, you just may like what you hear.

Death Rabbits to my knowledge is only group to feature their producer as a member of the group. Akira Death provides the group that features Yuzu [12], Emi [11] and Karin [13] that metal edge that the girls lack.

There is times however when his abilities overpowers the more softer Idols and other times when the girls take center. Overall it`s hard to overlook the girls moe charm. Death Rabbits are still a few years away from hitting break point and getting to the next level, however they continue to make steady growth and are on their way to become a top metal idols band i a near future.

Inoue Sonoko: A New Japanese Female Rising Rock Star

Please welcome Inoue Sonoko

Sonoko is a rising star in the music world having released her debut CD in April last year. One listen to this girl born in 1997, will instantly tell you that her mother trained this girl to sing well beyond her years.

Sonoko got started in music by doing street concerts in elementary school, learning to write songs and play the guitar along the way. In November of her debut year 2013 she landed the main role in the drama ‘Y-O-U Yamabiko Ongaku Dokokai (kari)’. This drama success came as a big surprise to her agency as she didn`t tell them in advance of her plans to audition.

I saw a funny comment in English on one of her videos, were the commenter suggested that she should give it up and be a pop singer as she will never make it .Clearly they knew nothing about Sonoko or the success she has already achieved and it`s a good thing she didn`t become a pop singer.

Sonoko held her first one-man live in the 6th grade drawing 100 people and within a year she had managed to achieve bigger followings and performing in bigger venues, all through the strengths of her live performances and self-produced CDs.

With her national career still in its early stages, the sky is the limits for this rising star.

30POSSE: a new rock Idols group is born!

Our friend at Pure Idol Heart has this new rock idols group for us, read what they have in store for us!

30POSSE is an Idol group that I have wanted to write about for some time so tonight is the night.

30POSSE is not an Idol Metal group ,I really wish they would go that direction as they could pull it off ,they are a group that has just enough rock elements in their show to be considered rock Idols ,that middle ground between the traditional Pop Idols and the more extreme Metal Idols.

30posse

It may not seem like it from the first song of the live as that`s really just a warm up of the up-tempo show to come.

They have a live show full of up-tempo catchy shows that you want to clap to or get your towel out and wave. It`s like watching a good movie that builds up to a climax finish.

At 8 min into the live 30POSSE shows just how great and rocking they are.



30POSSE is one of those Idol groups that you don`t want to miss when they roll into town.

It was reported that for the album the band intentionally toned down their appearance and aimed for a “pure metal sound”, so as to be recognized for their musicianship rather than being an all-female band. Their fourth single and first double A-side, “Dominator / I Don’t Like Me”, was released on October 9 and is the group’s highest charting, having reached number 12.

So, now Aldious have a CDM named “Other World”. CD+DVD, Including two songs karaoke, all 5 songs. The new album “Dazed and Delight” should be released on june 18, 2014.
