We all get excited when we find new groups. I will be the first to admit it is one of my great thrills when scrolling through Twitter to find one. I have found another today, and we will take a quick look at them. And this one is about as new as you can get.
Here is a new group that I have had my eye on for a week or so. A little different fare from the usual idolrock/idolcore stuff we usually cover. You know what though, I like them so far, at least from what I have heard. Lets take a look at Mysic Mode.
Maybe not as sparse as the previous entry, but still a bit lacking unfortunately.
There is one thing about being a fan of idol, you never run out of new things to find. If you are even a casual reader of this site you will know that I am always looking for and usually finding something new. Sometimes it will be something that is new to me but not actually new at all. Sometimes it will be something so new that they don’t even have full member rosters yet.

Does anyone that reads this remember the good old days of Progressive Rock? Remember Genesis, Pink Floyd and Jethro Tull. If you answered yes, friend, have I got a treat for you.

As I mentioned on the podcast last Saturday, I had a couple of new groups up my sleeve. I can’t remember if this was one of them I was referring to but they were on the ever growing list of new idols. These girls sound interesting even with the small amount of information available, especially their musical style. Lets take a look at ReAlice.
Industrial Metal, what does that bring to mind? Ministry, Nine Inch Nails…… maybe Marylin Manson. Yeah, me too. Now take that music and put bit of idol singing over the top and what do you get? GARUDA.
Lets have a peek at this new solo idol.
Lately it seems that every day a new idol group is making an appearance. Today is no different, well this group is not actually new, but for most fans of alternative idol they might as well be. Everyone’s favorite introducer of new idols, Viz Major, brings us another group to check out. Today it is the idol group DORCA. I will let him tell you in his own words. The following is from a post in the Alternative Idol Facebook group.
So, this one is a bit of me just stumbling across something because of groups retweeting each other. In this case the retweeter was まいみたまこ卍 [Maimi Tamako] an idol group I have not had the chance to talk about yet, perhaps I will later. Anyway, enough with this blather, let’s get on to this new group and see what we can find out.
Earlier this evening I was looking at the new posts in the Alt Idol Facebook group and came across a post by Viz about a new group called 終演後物販 (Shuuengo Buppan). He describes them as melocore, and after listening to them I would agree. Lets take a first, but brief look at Shuuengo Buppan.
