Welcome to October! Below you’ll find many of your favorite artists getting into the spirit of Halloween with themed titles that will invoke some scary thoughts in your imagination. However, the titles aren’t what makes them scary. What makes them scary is that they’re available at live venues exclusively. Frightening, I know. But luckily for the majority of us overseas fans, we’ll get a plethora of treats to sink our fangs into.

This month has good amount of full albums, too. Such as the long awaited album from Kiyoharu and lynch., and the first full length album from the two newer and promising bands, Develop One’s Faculties and Liraizo. Other bands including LycaonSuG, MEJIBRAY, NOCTURNAL BLOODLUST, More, BugLug, DIV, Blu-Billion, Chanty, KEEL and many more, all have good things in store for us as well. Stealing the spotlight for me, however, is Matenrou Opera‘s new single BURNING SOUL. What are you guys most looking forward to this month? Share your selections with us in the comments section!

Have a safe and happy Halloween everyone!
