Full name:
Tachi Ikoma 
Favourite metal genre(s):
Any Melodic, Symphonic, Prog 

-You will find almost all of the bands I upload are from Japan, and other times I will be adding discographies or other missing band data to any random bands I encounter. You will also find me fixing errors within discographies and lineups when I catch them. But generally my specialty will be fixing images; hunting down new ones and touching up others. As for reviews, I will usually review things I really enjoy, though I'll occasionally review something I found to be a disappointment.

-As of mid 2013 I keep backups of all important/obscure photos I've added to Japanese bands, and many others, so if a Japanese band or album has a photo that's less than appealing, I may have a good replacement on hand.

-Feel free to contact me for help involving reports of any kind involving most bands, especially Japanese ones being my forte.

-If you can't find an old Japanese release and I have it in my collection, I'd be more than happy to share mp3s with you, as long as it's out of print and won't affect the band.


I help run Japanese Metal Forum (, if you're a fan of Japanese metal, or are merely curious about the country's music, come check us out, tons of discussion about bands spanning many genres, including a few non-metal ones too.

I also help run Heavy Metal Rarities, so if there's a rare, out of print album you're dying to hear, come drop by, we can find a large portion of the rare old metal albums you may be looking for.
