Seems like Laruku will be on hiatus untill 2011 when they have their 20th Anniversary. They were bound to have a break anyways. After all, they just finished 3 concert tours in a row.

Im curious about the solo projects the members are going to be doing. All I know for now is that hyde and KAZ have formed VAMPS and had a release already.

I saw some of their PVs the other day. I still don't get why the drummer needs a double bass drum set when he can't even do at least 200 bpms on them. Hell, he doesn't even reach 130bpm at all whereas other drummers can do that on a single bass drum set. Talk about pretentious douchebag. Oh and overrated band is overrated.

Well, I'm no musical expert.... but don't you think that you're being a little unfair? You say that you've seen "some" of their PVs - that hardly covers their extensive discography. Laruku's on their 2nd drummer, so I don't know which you're talking of -- either way, I've always enjoyed their music as well as their rhythm section. Isn't it a little pretentious to call another drummer pretentious after only seeing, again, "some" of their PVs? Having a double drum bass set doesn't make on a douchebag - otherwise, there'd be a lot of them in the music industry... btw, I don't quite consider them overrated. If they were overrated, then they'd be topping the charts constantly - which they don't in Japan. Their sales are actually lower than quite a few band, say GLAY and B'z - to name a couple. But that's the music world for you, every band is going to seem "overrated" 'cause every band will get their own fandom.

Anyway, what's the point of going into a thread about a band only to bash them? See, now that's a little pretentious. xP

All I'm saying is, using a double bass and not reaching at least 100bpm mark is stupid and unnecessary when it is achievable through a single bass drum. I remember their old drummer played a single bass though. Oh and I've listened to quite a few of their records, even watched some of their live performances. For the record, I'm only bashing the drummer, not the entire band. The word "overrated" should be kept in mind as an opinion, be it good or bad (mostly bad). When it comes to music, I may seem pretentious but it's just one man's voice. If you or anyone else truly like the band, it shouldn't effect you in any way.

Then say that it's unnecessary and explain why as you've done. You seem like the type that knows the technicalities of music... however, there's no need to call the guy a "pretentious douchebag," 'cause that's simply insulting. If one doesn't like the music, fine. To each his/her own, that affects me in no way. But is there really any point in calling people names? I mean, if that's why you truly enjoy doing... then by all means. Besides, if i truly like the band, then I do believe that reading negative words would affect me. If I truly didn't like them, then I'd be apathetic, no? But when one of my favorite drummers is called a "douchebag," yeah, that's gonna evoke some emotions.

I enjoy getting on forums and such to read what other people think, I don't care if their opinions match up with mine as long as they're being respectful. Anyway, I'm not really hear to police people's thoughts. What's said is said.... I just had to make a comment about your previous post, is all.

And just to not get totally off track XD. I'm very much looking forward to 2011. In case you hadn't realized, I am a fan of Laruku's. So 2011 can't come any slower. Can't wait to see what the guys have planning.... and I'm also anxiously awaiting some music from their solo projects - especially ken's.
