J-rock

Hello, I'm not sure if anyone's discussed this but I would like to take a moment to make a nod to Yoshiki. He and his band are considered a founder of Japanese Rock. Now there's a lot that can be found by a quick Google search but the short version is that it started by influence from western bands but over time it developed into its own unique thing. Much of popular Japanese rock that is known outside of Japan is part of the su culture known as Visual Kei. visual kei is much like Glam rock in that it has a very extreme style.

Yoshiki is absolutely amazing. His drum solos are incredible and personally influenced my drumming style.

Mac Sabbath: The McDonald's Metal Band Of Your Nightmares
Just when you thought Ronald McDonald was as scary as clowns got, in comes Ronald Osbourne. From the poofy red wig and the yellow gloves, he's got all the fast food joint's iconic colors in place; however, something sinister boils beneath the surface. This is Mac Sabbath, a Black Sabbath cover band that combines all things Prince of Darkness with ketchup, mayo, and the occasional sweet and sour dipping sauce. And in this gig, Ronald Osbourne is the fast food world's Prince of Darkness equivalent. Needless to say, you should be scared. Very scared. And instead of 'Iron Man', their signature song is 'Frying Pan', which equal parts mocks the quality of fast food and the health of the people who eat it a little too frequently. Oh, and you've got to see Ronald's bandmates. There's Slayer MacCheeze, Grimalice, and Catburglar, who looks a whole lot like Peter Criss from the original KISS line-up. And just like the original Black Sabbath, Ronald and the crew are just as notorious for their extreme stage antics. After attending their concert last summer, music journalist Jake Manson observed a move pulled right out of the Ozzy Osbourne handbook: "The highlight came when Ronald reached into his takeout bag, pulled out a hamburger with bat wings, and took a massive bite out of it." So what do you guys think about Mac Sabbath? Have you seen any clown rock this hard? Let me know if you'd be down to see Mac Sabbath live in concert in the comments below, and for more WTF news, follow my WTF Street Journal collection.
What Makes New Age Music Interesting? โ€“ Some Amazing Facts I bet you did not Know
Image via unsplash What sort of music do you listen to when you are meditating, practising yoga or lulling yourself to sleep? Here are a few interesting facts about New Age Music that may take you by surprise. After all, new-age music may not be as boring as you think it is. What is the hype about? Image via unsplash Harping on mindfulness and trancelike relaxation, new-age music replaces tacit or unexpressed vocals with acoustical instruments, electrical synthesizers ad sounds of nature. This genre of music is also considered as not embracing intricate harmonies and tempos like classical, pop or rock genres of music. Therefore, the chances of you being able to tilt your head and tap your feet to new-age music are next to zero. The salient feature of the new-age music Image via unsplash There are ample new-age music recordings that capture sounds of nature be it the sound of waves, birds, whales or rain. Since new-age music tends to be static with a few harmonic alterations, this type of music is also popular amidst meditation and yoga sessions. This genre of music can be composed with both acoustical instruments as well as synthesizers. While new-age artists like Lasos and George Winston are renowned for using acoustic instruments, those like Engima rose to fame with synthesizers. New age music vs. Ambient Music Image via wikimediacommons As suggested by some of the best music blogs, ambient music tends to focus more on creating an atmosphere, an image or a mood whereas new age is more inclined towards spirituality, optimism and tranquillity. Therefore, you would often consider new age music excellent background music during yoga or meditation. This type of music also has recurrent melodies that create a mesmerizing feeling as opposed to ambient music that envelopes the timbral characteristics of sounds. Listening to Yanni would enlighten you better on what new age music entails while Brian Eno would be a good pick for you to get a grip on ambient music. New Age vs. New wave- is it the same? Image via unsplash Except for the fact that new age music and new wave musical styles both rose to fame in the early to mid-1980s, the genres do not resonate any similar characteristics. New wave music is not a representation of the spiritual movement brought forth by the new age music and is more an offset of punk rock.
