I downloaded all their EP's and ALBUMs. It's really one of the best these days to try when it comes to GENRE of INDIE/ROCK.

404 Dazzle Vision

The hardcore- punk rock of this band is amazing, the voice is SO strong!

414 Oldcodex aurgument sung the opening of god eater and I loved it was so inspirational especially in an anime where everyone was forced to fight and survive

The powerful voice of Ta_2 in combination with YORKE. 's lyrics is amazing.
The music gives me different emotions

I just really really love Tatsun's powerful voice and their lyrics and arrangements are just too good

Punk, Eletronic, Hardcore and some great artistic ballads! TOP 10 songs: 1- How Affection; 2- Optimistic negative thing; 3- Achromatic Habit; 4- Hidemind; 5- Lantana; 6- Dirt; 7- Backed Out; 8- Frame in Flame; 9-Catal Rhythm an 10- Seek your Turn. Awesome guitar arrangements, beautiful covers of the albums, made by the lyricist of the band and a amazingly produced sound. Worth listenning! Every song is GOOD, I just deleted 7 songs from the entire discography that has 60 songs more or less...

415 Bump of Chicken

I like the stories in their songs. Lyrics-wise, their's are one of the best. The songs they make are somewhat anthemic. I hope to hear more songs from them.

Love their hidden track..
"baby, boku no kimochi baby...A... "
who do you thing that could be sing that part?

Among all the bands in this list I reckon Bump of Chicken shall be the best, no doubt. They write great stories in songs. Lyrics can't be better. Recommend the album "Orbital Period", best ever.

This band is cool, I mean, it's really cool, you should listem and give them a chance.
