Ok, here basically I'm looking for bands from Japan, whether they speak english or not, that have some good music. Preferably Rock or metal stuff, but whatever you can find, name them. Please find some sort of link to the band as well, it does me no good to have a band name if I can't find their stuff

Sorry to break this to you, but you "hardcore" fans don't HAVE mosh pits.
You have epileptic line dancing.

X Japan, Dir en Grey, Larc in Ceil, Orange Range, Sambomaster, Miyavi, Camui Gackt, are to name a few. You can find some of their music all over youtube and as for getting the music you can buy it from itunes i believe, amazon.com, and other places. If you are getting it illegally then i will not endorse spreading japanese music through torrents...lol

Edit: Also Asian Kung Fu Generation, The Pillows, Abingdon Boys School, and UVERWorld...

Just to name bands that haven't already been mentioned:
the Gazette, UVERworld, Kagrra,, abingdon boys school, Alice Nine, D, HIGH and MIGHTY COLOR, FLOW, Janne da Arc, Mucc, SID and UNLIMITS.

Most these bands are damn awesome. I'm not too big a of Alice Nine (or most Visual Kei, for that matter), though.

You might also like Dustar-3 if you're into Sex Machineguns.
