I wonder if it was intentional in the video to not show closeups of their faces much and to focus on their silhouettes more. I imagine it's a little harder to break a Japanese band in the States. Song sounds good for the style.

Leave it to the Japanese to make scene metal cool again.


In all seriousness, I expected much worse. But there were actual leads written that went well together with the rhythm (or in this case breakdown), transitions that weren't entirely predictable and even a pretty cool riff for that second verse. The vocals are whatever but honestly this was a better and more technical song than most of what bands in the US of the same scene are doing. Hats off to them. I even liked the name.

I watched the entire thing, and I tried throughout it to think of a witty joke but honestly, I think I'm in love..

I was expecting some kind of alt j-rock/visual kei band or something. Severely disappointed.
