    I know it's the lead single, which has to be epic, but HOLY SHIT I MUST HAVE THIS ALBUM!!!

    Last thing I downloaded from Amazon MP3 was 256k. But that was a few years ago, so things probably changed. Either way, I think it's easier to download from iTunes, regardless of quality, and I'm not an MP3 fan anyways. As for my next question: I've been toying with the idea of bidding on something straight from mbok and having it shipped to a Japanese address (my Tenso mailbox), without using a shopping service. Has anyone tried to do something like this?

    I would recommend iTunes! Technically, iTunes and Amazon MP3 are the same bit rate (256), but iTunes uses AAC which is way higher quality than MP3. 256k AAC is actually quite close to lossless, there's not too much of a difference.

    That's an interesting sorting. I'm glad HINDSIGHT will be on the album. It's a good song that wasn't mastered very well. As for OMINA VANITAS, maybe it will be an instrumental/sound effects track that will make HINDSIGHT a proper ending?

    ^^ It's too bad it probably won't make it on the next album. It's a great song!

    ^ I know it's three months later, but I feel I should still answer that question before asking mine. Just in case you haven't tried it out yet, the site looks legit. I think prices are decent because they're in Taiwan, not US. But if you're still not sure, make your first purchase cheap. I have two questions: 1 - Does anyone know if Japanese iTunes has finally upgraded all they're stuff to "iTunes Plus"? I've noticed that plus icons on some albums (that did have them) have disappeared, but I'm still not quite sure. 2 - What's a good shopping/auction service to use for mbok?

    I like the idea of a continuation of TOXIC, only because the ending to that album was too abrupt. But I can say now that if there are intro/outro tracks, I will be pissed!

    YES IT'S ABOUT TIME! August is going to be a great month.

    葵&涼平? Nope! It's アヤビエ - and they're finally back, after years of 葵 having the metal sucked out of him, and 涼平...... doing something else that also isn't metal. Regardless of that, they've both matured as musicians. 涼平 has matured a lot as a composer, and while keeping to the typical song writing pattern, something about his songs are quite progressive. I really enjoyed this entire album, every song was great. My only gripe about this album is that it felt short, even for ten tracks. I will say, however, that I'm glad they chose to re-record old songs as bonus tracks, especially the two they chose (copies of 閉園の後、雨 and 蝶 can set you back $50/each, maybe more). It's interesting to hear how much 葵's voice has matured since his very first song (閉園の後). As for the re-recorded version of 蝶, the guitars are clearer and everything is much more present. 葵 and 涼平 have also matured as producers. This album is essential for all アヤビエ listeners. It has elements inspired by their present-day side projects, and something to remind you of the old days. It even has a cartoony CD cover, just like old times. Recommended Tracks: - ぬめり取りねぶり (!!!) - カメレオン症候群 (agrees with Daggi's comment) - 良秀ノ深遠ナル悩ミ (That kind of ending song that leaves you wanting more! Listen closely, you'll hear some screaming.)

    According to the band's OHP, Suehiro Maruo designed the artwork. Oh, and according to 7net shopping, the other two bonus tracks are just alternative versions of and .

    live-distributed? goddamnit!!! Why do bands do this all the time?
  13. Seimeisen

    The preview reminds me of their Houyoku material. Actually looking forward (and not cringing) to this release.
  14. Seimeisen

    Love the OHP background music. This wait is gonna KILL ME!!! And as for their new look: I don't usually focus on that, but...... Hiroto's hair. It's seen better days.
  15. Seimeisen

    I agree. Their 2010 releases weren't all that great, but 毒盛る gives me hope for their future releases.
  16. Seimeisen

    I have seen this day coming for awhile, but finding out about it was somehow, still abrupt, it interrupted every thing, the mood I felt the minute before, every thought I was thinking. I still don't know what to say about this. I mean, he already quit his job awhile back, but still, this sucks! May he rest in peace

    Time for my longest post EVER: Judging by the samples, everything sounds pretty good so far. At first, I was a bit worried when I saw the track lengths at tower.jp I'm cringing/laughing at the engrish in VENEMOUS SPIDERWEB Wasn't expecting SLUDGY CULT to be fast, but it's still an awesome song. I can't say I'm too fond of SUICIDE CIRCUS (but do think it would make a good "companion piece" to Filth in the beauty) Untitled is calm, soft, like I expected, and I can't wait to hear how the rest of it turns out. RUTHLESS DEED is my favourite so far and if the rest of the song is just as good as (if not better than) the preview, it may be my favourite GazettE song. I'm afraid I have to agree with Chianti on PSYCHOPATH. It's well composed, but so far, nothing about it really stands out. TOMORROW NEVER DIES has a more "middle of the album" kind of feel, like it could go right between Untitled and PLEDGE. I could be wrong when hearing the full song though But overall, I never thought an album would be capable of surpassing DIM without being super depressing, but I think TOXIC will do just that.

    I think guruguru is dead. I looked around a few months back and the page would either not load, or redirect to some search engine like most dead sites. But closetchild is still around. I browse the shop all the time. it's here: http://www.closetchild-cd.jp/

    How much is a Japanese Blu-ray going to cost? Japanese DVDs are already massively expensive so I'm kinda cringing at the idea of how much a Blu-ray release is going to be. Blu-ray discs cost about the same as DVDs in Japan.

    Covers and Tracklist for "REMEMBER THE URGE" up on OHP: Tracklist: REMEMBER THE URGE CLEVER MONKEY Bonus Track for Auditory Impression: 痴情 (Chijou, Blind Love)
  22. Seimeisen

    Seconded You're both doing a much better job than I did. Before samples were out, I promised told myself I wasn't gonna listen to any of the new material until the album was released. Then the day samples were released, I caved, immediately.
  23. Seimeisen

    Yes, this is the sixth. Hopefully, half of them won't appear on the next album. I'm gonna be perfectly honest and say: while I am looking forward to new stuff, I was still really pissed to hear that the next release is gonna be a single instead of an album.
  24. Seimeisen

    So that's how the SHIVER b-sides and VERMIN were leaked! I was always wondering. I'm really hoping the PV will be out soon though. I really want a good-quality rip of the full song. I'm getting really impatient with my 30 second audio preview and the radio rip quality is god awful.
  25. Seimeisen

    Nope, there are no samples, and there probably won't be any, but there is the possibility of AN UNCERTAIN SENSE being leaked soon (like HESITATING MEANS DEATH and VERMIN were). But I wouldn't count on that, considering that the single is set to be released in about 2 weeks and the title track PV isn't even out yet. It is weird though that the PV is still not out. Most of the time, PVs are released at least a month before the CD release.
