Hello Japanese Rock Band fan!? 

Oh, they're still on the spot light! If the last article posted was discussing Japanese Melodic-Punk, Four Get Me A Nots, therefore I will review one of the most-anticipated Japanese Rock Band, ONE OK ROCK. Get ready to meet one of promising band at Japan nowadays. Rock on~!

If you never heard them, then you should check your You Tube website. It's as easy as snaps your finger. Taka's has colic voice which gives uniqueness to their musicality. Whilst most Japanese rock bands sing entirely in Japanese, a lot of the first verse of their songs were sung in English, quite different from common Japanese rock bands; which made them being one-of-a-kind.

They've just released their 6th Studio Album entitled Jinsei x Boku=  (Jinsei Kakete Boku wa) on 2013.02.06 with their hit single「 The Beginning 」
By the time I saw the video I was entirely love at the first sight with the band! This is their hit single which caught my heart, ONE OK ROCK - 「 The Beginning 」! Yoroshiku!

Check out more about them; despite the fact that their vocalist, Taka, is quite cute, they're also have collaboration with Simple Plan (kewl!) which makes them become the talk-of-the-town. Plus, I have a personal opinion about their alternative post-hardcore music which is worth to listen to. Enjoy!
