†яi¢к’s first live show announced

As announced in his official website, Makoto’s new band, †яi¢к, will perform their first live performance soon. The show will be held at 11th December 2010, at an event called Peace Maker Super Festival in Shibuya. The event will also feature Aggressive Dogs, Kaikigesshoku, Loudness, Before Christ Butterfly and lots of other bands.

The line-up seems to be pretty heavy, with the likes of Kaikigesshoku and Loudness are in, so we can say that Makoto is officially a metalist now XD

Λucifer Bangkok, Thailand fancam videos

In case you hadn’t noticed, you can find some fan-taken video of Λucifer from their Bangkok performance on YouTube. Just do a search for Λucifer, sort by upload date and you’re all set. Or, just click here. Here’s a couple of cool ones to get you started:

Here’s one from earlier this month when Makoto went to Thailand early for a little promoing.

Makoto’s stage play and some more pictures of him at J-Channel office

Makoto has confirmed that he will be the main character of a stage play called “Urizun no Kaze”, which will be held from 26th to 31st October. He will be paired with Misato Hirata, a 31-year-old gravure idol who portrayed Konomi Amagai in the movie Ultraman Mebius & Ultraman Brothers in 2006 (click here for her pic). More info about the play here.

Also, as stated before, Makoto was in J-Channel office last week to promote Λucifer’s upcoming Thai concert. He stated that he’s going to learn about acting, so we can all look forward for some dramas from him!! Here’s some picture of him at the office:

Rayflower album out & TRICK debut

Rayflower, Yuki’s new band, is releasing their first mini album today, it’s called “Flower Language”. The album is released in regular and limited editions (as usual, the regular one has only a CD and the limited one has a bonus DVD). Here’s the tracklist:
1. Runaway Brain
2. Inishie
3. Shinjitsu no Mori no Naka de
4. Social Network Generation
5. Uragiri no Nai Sekai Made
6. Hanataba -From Rose With Love-

The DVD from the limited edtion contains (only…) one video, which is the PV of Uragiri no Nai Sekai Made.

And if you were questioning about what happened to their official website (yeah, it has been down for weeks), actually they are moved into a new website, which in my opinion is cooler than the old one.

Also, just as a reminder that Makoto’s new band, TRICK is also debuting today. Like it was reported before, they are participating in SEIKIMA-II tribute album, which is out today. But the strange thing is, the full line-up of the band is yet to be revealed, with SHUSE, the bassist of Acid Black Cherry is the only other member revealed other than Makoto himself. I think we really got to have the CD first to discover the full line-up.

And for all you fanboys/girls, my friend who lives in Thailand went to J-Channel Office last week to meet Makoto in person!! Yes, he was there to promote their upcoming (and sadly, the last) show. She took a video, which was very short but I think kinda good enough. Here’s a picture signed by him for her:Oh man… if I was her, I’d go and rape him XD

The Thai show is just 10 days away, maybe there are still tickets available, so try your best to be there!!

Updates about the 10th Anniversary tour

OK, the tour is just 4 days away, and here are some pictures of the rehearsal:

A new section about tour goods is also added, so you can do some fanboy/girling with even higher spirit with the official tour t-shirts, key chains, caps and lots of other stuffs. You can get those things here. Would you mind to buy me some of em? 8)

More on TRICK

Some more info on Makoto‘s new band TRICK.

SHUSE of La’cryma Christi and Acid Black Cherry has shed some light on TRICK on his blog. He’s revealed that he’s going to be the bassist of the group. As reported, their first recording will be on a Seikima II tribute album. Said album is going to be released on September 15th and is titled Tribute to SEIKIMA-II -Akuma to no Keiyakusho-. Here’s the complete tracklist in an A to Z order:

「アダムの林檎」 (Adam no Ringo) – Jigoku Quartet
「ARCADIA」 – RX feat. John Wetton
怪奇植物 (Kaiki Shokubutsu) TRICK
「蝋人形の館 」 (Rouningyou no Yakata) – SHOW-YA
「SAVE YOUR SOUL~美しきクリシェに背をむけて 」 (Utsukushiki Cliche ni Se wo Mukete) – X.Y.Z→A
「1999 SECRET OBJECT」 – Grand Illusion

If you’d care to buy it, CDJapan for one has it.

Makoto has a new “Trick” for us!!

If others can have their new bands, why can’t Makoto? Makoto has announced in his website that he has formed a new band called “Trick“. More tricks about the band can only be found in the future, as everything is still “shrouded in mystery”.

Henkka edit: One bit of information! Makoto’s site says that their first activity will be participation in a Seikima II tribute. I assume that translates to one track from them on a cover album.

More on the Thai concert

As previously talked about, it seems that the Aucifer reunion tour will culminate with their second ever live performance outside Japan, at the Indoor Stadium Huamark in Bangkok, Thailand on September 25th. If you live in Japan (and are rich!), you can also get yourself a pretty cool three-day deal that involves flights to Thailand and back, hotel accommodations, a fan meeting with the band and of course a ticket to their concert there. If you’re interested, you’ll need to check out this (or the Google translation.)

In the mean time, it looks like they held some kind of a press event for the upcoming concert in Thailand. Here’s some pictures from said event. I’m assuming the guy is the organizer.

More pictures here. They also had this video from Makoto to show at the event:

(Greetings in Thai)
Long time, no see.
I, Makoto, and the five of us in Aucifer came out to Thailand and did a concert a full eight years ago.
It’s been eight years already… everyone’s respectively become an old geezer and gotten nice and fat.
Now the five of us have gotten together again and we’re going to play at the Impact Hall where we played last time, too. (
Note: does he really say that, or are my ears just failing me today? Impact Hall is not where they’re playing this time. Dammit, Makoto, stop mumbling you sexy man!)
After a long time we’re going to put up an exciting show again, so definitely come check us out!
It’s been ten years already (
Note: since the formation), and the last time was eight years ago…
Back then we were all young guys. We’re definitely more grown up now.
Yeah, we’ve become old geezers… “old geezer”… (laughs) I’ll have to ask someone how you say that in Thai.
I’m looking forward to presenting you with a pleasantly fatter Aucifer!
So, until we’re doing our show in Thailand on September 25th, do look forward to it!
This was Makoto.
(Goodbyes in Thai)
