spiv states is the new band of ex. Phantasmagoria's JUN and IORI. Wow, they have changed since Phantasmagoria days. Right now, the boys look like this;
JUN - vocals and guitar
IORI - guitar
This far they haven't released anything, and basically have some lives scheduled, but on the OHP you can hear samples.
To me, it sounds a lot like JUN's solo project attic, but all we've heard are samples, so I can't say anything more.Last edit by JustIronic on Thursday 12 Nov, 2009 at 11:10 -99.4%[/edit]Last edit by JustIronic on Thursday 12 Nov, 2009 at 11:09 +3.8%[/edit]Last edit by JustIronic on Thursday 12 Nov, 2009 at 11:09 +4.7%[/edit]
....everything reminds me of Hide XDthe outfits, colors and ofcourse JUN's pink hairxDD
and the samples of the songs are ok:]
Ah, JUN's at least not completely pink haired anymore xD
But I'm shocked over IORI's... Looks.. I mean, it's so different from before. ):
I was pretty shocked when I first found out about this band, especially with IORI's look! I guess I'm used to seeing JUN like that, his style's similar from when he was in attic. But IORI, I wouldn't have seen that coming XD
So I read that they were supposed to have an early release of 『VIVA SONIC』 at a show on November 18th, did this never happen? I'd figure something would be making the rounds by this point.
The previews sound a bit like hide and Scarecrow to me.
And IORI used to look so good in Phantasmagoria, now he's like.. Not as good-looking xD
@ melephant - I have no idea, but it doesn't sound impossible.
Bah. I'm so anxious to hear it xD
At least it looks like there's going to be releases this month, January and February.
And, just to continue with IORI... he did used to be so pretty. Now I'm not so sure xD
Yeah, in Phantasmagoria days they used to look better xD JUN looks like he has so much bigger eyes now xD Though, IORI does as well xD IORI has to go back to non-colorish. xD
If I hear anything about released I'll make sure I write it here
So... VIVA SONIC is alright. Only one song, and then an instrumental, and then 10 minutes of "commentaries".
I guess I expected a little more, from the preview. But, it's not bad. I think I just need to listen to it more.
I finally took a few minutes to listen to VIVA SONIC... It sounds like attic x'D Not weird that it does though xD
I love Spiv States! It's sad that Iori is no longer there. But Jun have new members! Yayy! I don't like those people who said their song isn't good!! and that jun's voice need more practice. for those people who said that. let me SEE you sing! becuz you might not have a perfect voice too! so don't judge people who can do better than you!
^ It's not about 'doing better'. I haven't chosen to be a vocalist, therefore I don't have to sound like one. Not saying JUN is awful, because he isn't, but he has still chosen to be a vocalist. Therefore, he has to sound like a decent one. The argument "you do it better" doesn't work unless you're actually discussing it with someone who also has chosen to be a vocalist, and to sound like one.
He isn't very good - he was/is a guitarist. However, in the vk scene there are actual vocalists that sound worse than him, way worse, so I'd say he's doing good.
Okayy. Jun is good. But people were saying bad things and that their music is awful. Here. What if you have a band and Is said you are awful. How will you feel?
Of course it wouldn't feel good. Who the hell would feel good after being told that?
Though, anything that is only said on forums stays there and will most certainly not reach the musicians. On forums it's only between fans, and their reactions.
I know that~ But I'm telling the fans or the people who are not their fans to be polite. They can said bad things to them self.. But not out loud so then people can see it.
I actually really like Jun's voice... xD I'm not sure why.
Because you're right, it's not that great. It's not terrible by any means, though...
i LOVE Jun & Iori so MUCH :lovec:
