I'll be adding two "new" The Darkness items soon. I was basically two weeks offline due to a move to another city and my internet provider could not get the new connection up and running within the promised timeframe.

Anyway, 宇宙戦隊NOIZ's new album METEORS will be released tomorrow in Japan and I expect that my copies will arrive at the end of the week or early next week. I will try to make scans as soon as I get them. Fingers crossed!

It's Zebra and Snake day today! :) I've added three promotional releases this evening. The first one is a two track CD for Empty Love Song, their single from August. The other two are pretty rare promotional releases from this year which feature three ZAS tracks (plus songs by other artists such as Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark and Matisyahu). The first disc features album tracks whereas the second disc contains the same tracks as full instrumentals!

Second update for The Darkness this weekend. I have added a nice US advance CDr release for Hot Cakes plus a scan of the promotional vinyl release from Europe.

I've added scans of two new Darkness singles today: an Australian promotional CD copy for Everybody Have A Good Time and scans for the latest promo CD Nothin's Gonna Stop Us which features a cool instrumental. You can expect another update in the next day or two for the album Hot Cakes as I got two neat promotional releases recently.

I have turned on manual approval for now for the comment boxes, as they were already being used for spam. Naughty!

Only one more album left and there is an image available for each album by メトロノーム. Today I have added scans of their 2007 mini-album サイクルリサイクル.

All Facebook comment boxes have also been replaced by comment boxes of Commentics. So get interactive and share your thoughts!

I am slowly starting to replace the current Facebook comment boxes with a comment box developed by Commentics and expect to be done in the next day or so. Let me know what you think!

Finally, the promotional CD-single for the Darkness' single Everybody Have A Good Time came in today. The seller advertised it as a one track promo, but it turned out to be a two track promo, so I double checked all the current and closed eBay auctions and it seems that there is only one version out there of the European promo! I therefore not only added scans of this promo, but also updated the info about this release accordingly.

Stay tuned for more Darkness updates in the next few weeks!

A fact that I completely forgot to mention this week is that Zebra and Snake released a new single on Monday called Empty Love Song. You can check the details right here!

The Darkness are promoting their new album like madmen! So far three different promotional releases have surfaced so far for Hot Cakes and you can find the details over here at last (though there are no scans available yet). It furthermore seems that Nothin's Gonna Stop Us will be released as a commercial single anytime soon (possibly in September or October)! More details will be added once they become available.

宇宙戦隊NOIZ announced further details for their upcoming album METEORS. Check out the tracklisting, artwork and different editions!

Don't forget that you can download Lovelife's debut EP El Regreso for free as of yesterday from their own website!

Seconds are ticking away. It won't be long anymore until Lovelife release their debut EP El Regreso digitally and for free through their own website. In the meantime you can listen to the full EP online at until the download comes out tomorrow. So far it sounds like the EP is going to feature new versions of songs that were previously released as demo recordings!

Did you know that the vinyl edition of The Darkness' album Hot Cakes features a unique version of a song? No? Well now you do! Check out the details!

It seems that we can expect a new single by Gotye in early September being I Feel Better. It will once again be a digital-only single, yet promotional CD-singles are starting to surface and it is this promo release that has been added tonight.

All different commercial releases have now been added for The Darkness' latest album release Hot Cakes! I've also added some further info about the vinyl and promo releases.

OK! So I've received all three formats of The Darkness' latest album Hot Cakes today. Scans will be made tomorrow (hopefully also of the lovely vinyl) and added to the website, although I already made some updates to the album's tracklisting (there were some typos) plus I have updated their single discography with regards to the last three singles.

After a delay of about two weeks I was finally able to finish a new artist. Tonight I have added Moi dix Mois who are a band from Japan and create some dark, synth-pop/rock/gothic music and are certainly interesting enough to be checked out!

2012-08-09 – 20:39

And another update for today... I've added further information to the website about the 2011 compilation CD Music To Play Games By Too which features a track by Vile Electrodes. Check out the details and artwork!

宇宙戦隊NOIZ released a new video on the 7th of August for a cover song called Narda which is by the Filipino rock band Kamikazee. The song is not going to be featured on their upcoming album METEORS, so it is yet to be seen if it will ever be featured on a physical release. In the meantime, check out this great new song!

Lovelife's first release is in the pipeline! It is called El Regreso and will be a free digital download as of the 21st of August from their official website!

I got this disc already a few weeks ago, but always forgot to scan it until tonight. It is the European promotional CD for The Darkness debut album Permission To Land, although at that time the album didn't had a name yet.

A new artist has been added this evening being Vile Electrodes! They are a duo from the UK and create electronic pop music. They are still in the starting blocks, but were already featured on two compilation CD's, released an EP and are currently working on their long awaited debut album. Check out some of their recordings and videos on their main page!
