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.


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.

PassCode : your new guilty pleasure band

If you are a BABYMETAL fan, you’ll probably fall in love with this new Japanese band named Passcode.

PassCode is a new metal/rock*j-pop band featuring 4 idols : Kurohara yu-ri, Takashima Kaede, Imada Yuna and Minami Nao. Their first cd is named «PassCode – ALL is Vanity» and sales begin in late May at CD Japan. their is not much info about Passcode right now, but their YouTube Channel PASSCODE0000 has some pretty nice videos.


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.
