Awesome band, true rock, Maybe sometimes soft, but their music will influence you for sure, MUST to listen to them.

286 Jupiter

Instrumental and sound wise Jupiter is much more alive and wild than when they were in Versailles. The only thing that is keeping them from surpassing their pass height is acceptance. Somehow it always sounds like the instrument sound is trying to drowning out the vocal instead of harmonizing with it.

Power of punk throughout this band that give American punk bands a run for their money. You can practically feel the energy in all their songs. another underrated awesome punk band

Really awesome rock duo They sang Leo from Haikyuu's EST. Which the English version of it was very deep but if you look inside it, it really is touching.

289 Psychic Lover
290 BOWL
