X (later changed to X JAPAN in 1992 to avoid confusion with the American band X) is arguably one of the most influential bands in the history of the Japanese music scene. Formed by childhood friends Yoshiki and Toshi in 1982 at Chiba, Japan, X was originally founded to play high energy rock music.

  • Ahah this band is such a fucking fraud lmao
  • The doc's still on festivals circuit, I guess. It's going to be displayed at SxSW. If you're asking about the XDay's display, I think it was postponed too.
  • v Cross fingers the album drops this year. I just hope Pata will be alright. I wonder what will happen with the "We are X" documentary.
  • Sure, there's still hope for the album this year. However, Yoshiki said during one of his performances, that album is (quote) "99% done" and they just need to record some choirs for "Kiss the Sky"...
  • Wembley gig was moved to 2017. New album was postponed, but it wasn't written that would happen in 2017, so it still can be released this year. It also seems there's gonna happen a 2016-2017 world tour. Pata's condition was life-threatening, but he's getting better.
  • I'm worried about Pata, however, Yoshiki is clearly using this as an excuse, again. If the album was going to be released a month from now, it would be completed by now, and even if it wasn't totally finished they COULD ACTUALLY USE Sugizo for once. They've snubbed him on every new song so far with almost no solo time, save Beneath The Skin, but I guarantee that solo will be cut down on the studio version, like Born To Be Free . There is no reason they can't release the album and just postpone the shows. If it wasn't this, Yoshiki would have come up with another excuse.
  • Get well soon Pata!
  • We're gonna wait another year for the new album and the SSE Wembley show due to Pata's health issues :(
  • @Mii85, yeah it is.
  • I have this odd feeling if I pointed out that Savatage lifted All That I Bleed from Endless Rain, Angeltearx wouldn't argue because Savatage aren't Japanese.
