    Fair enough, compared to you, I do lack the information, but the result is still the same.

    The news got me down hard. I don't know...seems like everyone will be stuck playing the 2nd fiddle to Retsu, which really isn't an issue, creatively, but essentially bands are a business, too, and that's the side of the coin that Retsu neglects quite a bit and unless he eases off the reins, I don't think they will be able to grow. Releases and live shows few and far between...pretty much radio silence for the most part. And, yeah, Satoshi would be the perfect guy to take helm and try to actually take the band somewhere.

    Yes, all songs are previously released, but the vocal tracks are new.

    While certainly off in all regards, it's strangely charming also, better with masks on

    Eh, pretty vanilla...
  6. After Oni, I can't wait for what Seiya and Hiroto are gonna cook up, together.

    I listened to the album multiple times, and while the main singles are enjoyable on their own, the rest of the album drags them down to the deepest depths of hell. God, is it such a boring slog to get through, especially the 2nd half. This is easily their worst record to date. Losing Seiya and Hiroto really didn't leave good results. All the verses sound the exact same in each of the new songs, stale riffs and "tired" drumming. Sure it's fast and heavy, but without a hint of creativity, plus the only difference between each breakdown is the BPM. The new guys had a wonderful chance to show off and do something new and fresh, but no, let's recycle the old shit, but with musicians who can't keep up and lack the same compositional prowess. Vocal-wise, Keisuke is objectively a beast (important to note that I mean harsh vocals only), but this time, he rarely uses anything but his highs and as time goes on, again, boredom hits. And oh boy, who the fuck greenlit Ruten, which sane person would listen to that shit and put it on the album, as the closing song, to boot. I understand trying something new and interesting (a bit too interesting for the wrong reasons), and sure, I respect it, but damn, is it just awful. I kinda enjoyed his shots at "clean" singing on ESCAPE and prior, but from now on, he should just stop, effective immediately. (and that supposed duet on Dusky-vision, seeing him sing ain't the same as hearing him, and hear him I cannot, it's just Ray.) Ray, who's probably the only saving grace of the album, well, at least in terms of his vocal parts. It's obvious they put some bank into this, the PVs, the production, and even the cover, but if they release another LP like this one, it's the end of the line. I sincerely hope their EU tour goes well for them, I'll be attending for sure, since I still consider them among my favorites, but because of that, the album is all the more disappointing. Kaika, Kodokushi and Aishitekudasai are the highlights, but it's sad when your old material still holds up, compared to the supposed fresh stuff.
  8. If Akane ever comes back, looking back at the vocal progression from julius, through Para:noir to D.I.D., only dogs will be able to hear him.

      And that's just what i want tbh, been listening to alot of D.I.D. again, especially nihilism. I wonder why akane went from screaming un paranoir to very pained HNNNNGGG NNNRRRRRRG noises. I love it but lmao hes just grunting very hard.

    2. 123Sandman321


      Yeah, the D.I.D. versions of older songs are the best ones, but it's really just an acquired taste, since it's quite jarring at first and I had to listen to Paranoid Personality and Providentia countless times to understand them and love them as I do, now. Para:noir were much more digestible in that regard.


      Imagine writing lyrics for those parts, tho

      LMAO only for them to not sound like anything, like gula is just him doing loud, long grunts and shrieks accompanied by Shut up mother fucker, God damnit. God is Dead is somewhere inbetween all of that cause akane

    Alternating between Divinity: Original Sin 2 (an all-round wonderful game, but ungodly long) and Yakuza Kiwami 2 which is just perfect (tho, I can't seem to nail down the Tiger Drop in this one...t'was really easy in 0 and Kiwami)...and I'm spending way too much time playing the hostess minigame. Btw, is there anyone playing R6 Siege, willing to team up?
  13. 123Sandman321

    DAD AROMA is no longer region locked, at least in Europe
  14. 123Sandman321

    It sounds wonderful, but we are hitting levels of pretentiousness topping even those of the 1st EP.
