Updated Kou Hayashi's picture (set it as default, but feel free to revert back to Revoc's picture if you think it is better).

Interview as well:

Do you think there is enough evidence to add "showerheadz" as an alias for Kou Hayashi?

1. He is credited for the showerheadz remixes on the Illmatic Envelope OST.
2. In this PV for the Shooting Love 200X OST, showerheadz appears around 2:20 with his eyes blacked out. Going by the picture we have of Hayashi, it sure looks like it's him.

Good catch. Also looking around official PR and such says Nagata and Hayashi worked on Shooting Love 20XX (the game), and according to this Hayashi and co will be doing a signing session for SL20XX.

But more importantly... why did they use WASi303's wedding for PR? lol

Based on his Facebook page, Kou Hayashi left Milestone in February of 2012. Not sure about the status of Daisuke Nagata (or even Milestone!).

I found this on the Milestone page (and it mentions this year), so I believe it's current. Not sure what it says though:

It says, roughly, that there were differences (read: disputes) between the members, and the group has been indefinitely suspended.

The press release may include a joke (although khdn's being on hiatus is true), since it says they quarreled about the treatment of a member called "Roger", but khdn is as far as we know a duo.

Haha, yeah, I don't believe there is a Roger at all. I don't think that Hayashi and Nagata had any disputes, but again, things change. As far as I could tell, they had much respect for one another. Hopefully they won't disappear into obscurity

"Sakura Flamingo Laboratory" seems to be the new dev team of "Klon".
They tweet "their sound unit" k.h.d.n. will be doing this and that.
The company lists Ko Hayashi as a director. Hmmm. Milestone 2.0?

Hayashi too says he's part of k.h.d.n. in Twitter.

A new Shmups developer company would be nice.

While searching for info about the upcoming K.H.D.N. Live event ARXIAL RENDEZVOUS, I came across some strange CDs. I hope someone can give me a hand to find more info and submit them:

Presents. Mix For Chrono Vol.1 "Nightvision From The Window"


Tha Everlasting Summer E.P. (AFAIK this was given to those who assisted to Area PicoPico88 last year)

Tracklist:
01 - 24/7 -all night long-
02 - I Wanna Be With You In This World -Double Wheel-
03 - Lovein' to the machine -showerheadz remix-
04 - 1000 Clouds - Not Be Mine.-

Reebot Tha World e.p.

Tracklist:
01 - Sex pervert of a silence -Hello Kitty
02 - 1000 Clouds -Big Deeper-
03 - 25mg feat.FUE -Blindman ** (couldn't find the complete name of this track)

And if I'm understanding correctly (maybe not), you could get a CD by filling a survey from a K.H.D.N. interview published on Dengekionline.

I've only heard of the everlasting summer EP and what you mention about its availability is correct. However, all of those tracks are featured on the Sakura Flamingo Audiography -PINK-, which was just released.

Not sure about Reboot Tha World e.p., but perhaps that music will be released on a later album similar to the everlasting summer ep.

K.H.D.N. Shooting Gameside vol.3 interview translation by rancor@Shmups forum.

On a side note, I've found even more K.H.D.N. albums, but I don't have enough info to submit them.

Based on an email I got from someone in Japan (not a composer), this is what I was told:

Via Ko Hayashi & Tadayo Aita,k.h.d.n. official spokeswoman (@gojarudegojaru) twitters, 'k.h.d.n.' will probably take a hiatus from their activities in its name for unknown period. i'm shocked! They announced Karous OST and their private (doujin) CD in Japan M3,but would cancel them At the same time Klon Co.ltd,their company,will close its shooting game section.

I presume that is why all of those pages are no longer available.

The founder of MileStone was arrested for selling the security assets, which have shut down the company. The company no longer exists.
