Maybe you know the Korean band "The TRAX". They are going to Japan and Yoshiki is producing them. Their first single in Japan will be pubished on December, 15th. The title is "Scorpio" and it will be produced by Yoshiki.
Their website is (korean) and (Japanese).

I'm sorry that I didn't make any updates since July, I try my best. I have a new job now as system programmer (or whatever it is called in English, the German word is "Systementwickler"). I'm really happy about that because it is a "real" job and I even have an unlimited contract but it also means a lot of work... also I want to take the JLPT (only level 4) in December so I have to work hard on my (rather poor) Japanese ^_^

Hello everybody!
Thank you very much for all the kind wishes for finding a new job. One day before the last day of my contract they decided that they want to keep me and I got my contract renewed so I still have a job. At the moment I try to organise my time a little better and I hope to make more updates here (and finally answer all your mails -_-)

Yesterday I was on a concert of Patti Smith. She is one of my favorite artists (beside X) and it was the first time to see her live. It was really great. She is such a powerfull woman. Unfortunaly I fogot my camera at home, so no pictures.

That's all for now... sorry, I have no X-related news at the moment...
bye Katrin

Well, I'm really sorry that there weren't updates the last time... I moved in a new flat and it's still very chaotic and "strange" for me.
also a great wish of mine comes true: tomorrow I'll fly to Japan for a holiday trip... I hope to be able to make some updates and answer your mail (thanks to all of you who wrote me) when I'm back.... ~Katrin

but I hope to find some time after it...

Hello X-Freaks!
Well after many many many years, Visual Legends X JAPAN finally get an American CD/DVD RELEASE!!!
Thanks to TOFU records (ala TM Revolution's new American releases) X JAPAN is finally here. It looks like a replica of the X B.O.X. (Best Of X--pre-Dahlia songs) with the dvd minus the karaoke disc. The retail price is only $19.98 for the set! (the dvd is a GREAT bonus for those of us who own the standard Japanese set--remember the dvd should be region 1 for international customers who are interested) The DVD will be the MTV studio/On The Verge Of Destruction live videos for the songs if it is the same as the B.O.X. with the edition of ENGLISH SUBTITLES!
