Mind of Asian

Ok, last I heard Mie, Mind of Asian’s guitarist, left the band, but they have live show updates posted. I’m not sure if they found a new guitarist or if Mie came back. Either way, I will not pass up this chance to see my favorite thrashcore/powerviolence band!

Liberated Stain

I was first introduced to Liberated Stain by a friend of mine a few months ago and was totally blown away. They just put out a new album entitled The Moment of Truth just weeks ago so get yourself a copy and go to a show.

Tokyo’s Fuck On The Beach not only has one of the best band names, they are also one of Tokyo’s best powerviolence bands. On their official homepage they have announced that they will be touring Brazil with fellow thrashers, Vivisick.

Osaka’s Stubborn Father is putting on a show with Fortitude and Mortalized et al. in a venue that I believe is far too small to hold all the thrashing that needs to be going on at this show. I saw them play with Mind of Asian and the stage presence of their vocalist Shige alone warrants every show of theirs a must-see.

Bay Area thrashers, Voetsek, are playing two more shows before they head back to the States. They are playing one tonight and another tomorrow; although, they have played two shows in Kochi and Osaka already… sorry about missing that. Any way, make sure you check these shows out as they are playing with some pretty awesome Japanese bands like Mind of Asian, FOLKEIIS and Fuck On The Beach.

Sorry about the short notice!

Hey guys, today I just wanted to let you know that one of best melodic hardcore bands to see in concert is currently touring in Japan. Hailing from Tokyo, this “Five-Man-Terror-Squad” brings you finest hardcore, I have caught them when they opened for Comeback Kid in Osaka in 2008, and damn it was amazing. Give em a spin on myspace!

Not only is this the first post (of what I hope will be many) on the Gaijin Underground Music Network blog, I’m very pleased to announce that a personal favorite band has just started their tour that will take them from Tokyo to Osaka.

Here’s the tour calendar, taken from their MySpace. So they aren’t really going out to western Japan until June and July, but those of you in the Kanto region have many chances to see this amazing all female, raging thrashcore band.
