Japanese metalcore/screamo/(emo) rap. Clean vocals start around 18 seconds in.


If that's too heavy for you, how about some post-rock?


I think these should sound cool even if you don't understand the lyrics. Out of left (or right?) field compared to most of the stuff posted so far, but hopefully you find these interesting if nothing else.

If you like the first vocalist, good news! There is a lot more of her (めらみぽっぷ / Meramipop)

If I had to pick one song to showcase her incredible treble: (symphonic rock)

Doesn't sound great on youtube, but you can find my CD rip from my Twitter (@Merami_fan).

Turtle Blues

"Ah, I'm a mean, mean woman
And I don't mean no one man, no good, no
I'm a mean, mean woman
I don't mean no one man, no good
I just treats 'em like I wants to
I never treats 'em, honey like I should

Oh, Lord, I once had a daddy
He said he'd give me everything in sight
Once had a daddy
Said he'd give me everything in sight
Yes, he did
So I said, "Honey, I want the sunshine
you take the stars out of the night
Come on and give 'em to me, babe, 'cause I want 'em right now"

I ain't the kind of woman
Who'd make your life a bed of ease, ha ha ha ha!
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
I'm not the kind of woman, no
To make your life a bed of ease
Yeah, but if you, if you just wanna go out drinkin', honey
Won't you invite me along please
Oh, I'll be so good to ya babe, yeah!
Whoa, go on!

I guess I'm just like a turtle
That's hidin' underneath its horny shell
Whoa, whoa, oh yeah, like a turtle
Hidin' underneath its horny shell
But you know I'm very well protected
I know this goddamn life too well

Oh! Now call me mean, you can call me evil, yeah, yeah
I've been called much worser things things around
Honey, don't ya know I have!
Whoa, call me mean or call me evil
I've been called much worser things, all things around
Yeah, but I'm gonna take good care of Janis, yeah
Honey, ain't no one gonna dog me down
Alright, yeah"

"Ball And Chain"

Yeah! Alright!

Sittin' down by my window,
Honey, lookin' out at the rain.
Lord, Lord, Lord, sittin' down by my window,
Baby, lookin' out at the rain.
Somethin' came along, grabbed a hold of me,
And it felt just like a ball and chain.
Honey, that's exactly what it felt like,
Honey, just dragging me down.

And I say, oh, whoa, whoa, now hon', tell me why,
Why does every single little tiny thing I hold on goes wrong ?
Yeah it all goes wrong, yeah.
And I say, oh, whoa, whoa, now babe, tell me why,
Why does every thing, every thing.
Hey, here you gone today, I wanted to love you,
Honey, I just wanted to hold you, I said, for so long,
Yeah! Alright! Hey!

Love's got a hold on me, baby,
Feels just like a ball and chain.
Now, love's just draggin' me down, baby, yeah,
Feels like a ball and chain.
I hope there's someone out there who could tell me
Why the man I love wanna leave me in so much pain.
Yeah, maybe, maybe you could help me, come on, help me!

And I say, oh, whoa, whoa, now hon', tell me why,
Now tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me why, yeah.
And I say, oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, when I ask you,
When I need to know why, c'mon tell me why, hey hey hey,
Here you've gone today,
I wanted to love you and hold you
Till the day I die.
I said whoa, whoa, whoa!!

And I say oh, whoa, whoa, no honey
It ain't fair, daddy it ain't fair what you do,
I see what you're doin' to me and you know it ain't fair.
And I say oh, whoa whoa now baby
It ain't fair, now, now, now, what you do
I said hon' it ain't fair what, hon' it ain't fair what you do.
Oh, here you gone today and all I ever wanted to do
Was to love you
Honey an' I think there can be nothing wrong with that,
Only it ain't wrong, no, no, no, no, no.

Sittin' down by my window,
Lookin' at the rain.
Lord, Lord, Lord, sittin' down by my window,
Lookin' at the rain, see the rain.
Somethin' came along, grabbed a hold of me,
And it felt like a ball and chain.
Oh this can't be in vain
And I'm gonna tell you one just more time, yeah, yeah!

And I say oh, whoa whoa, now baby
This can't be, no this can't be in vain,
And I say no no no no no no no no, whoa!
And I say whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Now now now now now now now now now no no not in vain
Hey, hope there is someone that could tell me
Hon', tell me why,
Hon', tell me why love is like
Just like a ball
Just like a ball
Baaaaaaalllll
Oh daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy
And a chain.
Yeah!

I'm a big japanese music fan in general.
Favorite Bands:
-Asian Kung-Fu Generation
-Tricott
-EVE
-Co Shu Nie
-Yorushika
-Creepy Nuts
-Lucky Kilimanjaro
-Half Time Old
-Yama
-Oisicle Melonpan

Majority of these are lighter, big thing for me is just instrumentals. Japan seems to keep pushing the boundaries instrumentally, where as you don't see that as much with main stream music here in the US.

Agreed. And I'm not just a weeb or Japanophile. In my opinion, the Japanese music scene is more adventurous and generally more interesting than western offerings. I spent a lot of my free time during the past few years digging into Japanese music. Hundreds of hours.

Some of the artists you listed are on the popular side, some not so much. All pretty decent. For mainstream bands, I would recommend Indigo la End (indie rock) and Spitz (rock). There are a lot of quality mainstream artists, to be honest. But I've been completely focused on doujin (同人) music for the last 3 years or so. Meaning self-published, you can think of it as indie taken a step further. I have found the doujin scene to be much more interesting than mainstream.

Why? Because doujin works are passion projects. No producers or executives imposing their will. Full creative freedom. No real concerns about marketability, just making the music they want to make. In fact, most circles lose money. Not to say that mainstream artists are lacking talent. It's just that over-produced/edited, generic-sounding music meant to appeal to a wide range of people does not tend to make for the most interesting or memorable music.

You might wonder about the production values for amateur music, but I'm not talking about Soundcloud mumble rappers here. Most doujin artists are current/former/eternal music students. Difficult to make decent music if you don't know music theory. Many also do professional work for commercial interests, so doujin works are often amateur as a technicality, not technically. Artists often have high-level equipment, or rent professional studios to record. Mixing and mastering are commonly outsourced to established names so that efforts aren't marred by fumbling around with unfamiliar software.

To give some examples:


Post-Rock. Particularly interesting bass guitar and use of varied time signatures. The bassist is wild.
at 3:28:25.


Soft rock. Clean yet playful arrangement with beautiful vocals.


Metalcore. Something heavier to balance it out. It's not just mashing--that would be "heavy" metal or heavier. The distorted guitar is endlessly cool, and the rest of the backing instrumentation is powerful and energetic, but not frenetic. Smooth yet powerful vocals make for easy listening, although you would expect something much heavier just hearing the first few seconds.

I could go on forever about this...

Agree with your first paragraph 100%. I went with more well-known bands to gauge who I was talking with to an extent haha. I enjoy Indigo la End, some of their music is too weepy though. Other enjoyable ones are Nakimushi, yourness, Kobore, 36km, Bubbly Summer, People1, Zutomayo, Lucky Tapes, Vaundy, etc etc. So I think it is safe it say I enjoy japanese mainstream indie music. So I havent dove too deep into the doujin side of things. Regardless it is quite enjoyable, and my music of choice especially when working. At some point the music crosses a barrier for me in which it is too interesting though. I wouldn't say my ears can't keep up, rather it becomes too infatuated with sound that I can't concentrate on a line that I really enjoy.

Favorite bassist is in Oisicle Melonpan, very smooth to listen to. Often their music has two solos, one for the guitarist/vocalist, and one for the bassist.

There is an almost endless amount of music to discover. Sometimes you just have to put everything else on hold and focus on certain areas to really dig deep enough. It's impossible to keep up with everything. I haven't really checked in on mainstream stuff for around 2 years, but I recognize yourness, Kobore, and Zutomayo out of those.
Decent anime

If you decide to take the plunge into doujin music, feel free to give me a shout. For starters, you might like Kurage seek room, iTi, Tengu no mai (天狗ノ舞), minimum electric design. I'll leave you with this, though. A nice rock piece with human vocals, from a vocaloid producer under an indie label... The vocalist, F9, is really lovely. She's mostly active in the doujin scene, though.
