    I liked it a lot more than I expected, it's a well composed song and fun to listen, which is pretty much what I hoped to hear from this project.
  2. Just discovered this band, enjoyed their new album quite a bit during the first listen! Apparently they started out as a technical death metal band, but I guess now they'd fit better under the Post-BM umbrella?

    Even though our new EP has been out for a while, I only now began to crave some MH feedback We are beginning to adjust both our visual and musical side a bit to a darker tone, so I hope some of you will give our stuff another try! All our music is also on Spotify - I personally would always recommend to listen to "Ultraviolet" first since it's closer to the more progressive direction we want to go in the future.

    It only affected his clean singing since had problems with his vocal cords - for screaming he uses his false cords, so he never had any problems with that! Not too sold on the songs either, but I am very happy to hear him sing again and hope for better things in the future. He clearly doesn't sound like he did in his prime, but a lot better and less broken than on MONSTERS.

    THIS I feel he has a good team there actually, defspiral has a pretty decent production standard and abs related stuff is always great to see
  6. Happy b-day Kal! <3

  7. "In the shadows" is one of the best MUCC songs ever, pretty sure it would have stood out on their strongest albums as well

      Living Dead and Sekisou are awesome too!

      Yup, I really enjoy the whole album a lot, glad they are still releasing strong stuff after all those years :)

    Need to give it a few more spins as well, but I like the direction they are trying! Hotaru is a fantastic song.
  9. Sounds great, even though I kinda hoped they would keep the heavy direction of "This is LIVE"
  10. Demo#2 is absolutely beautiful, the last track might be one of my favourites from 2018.
  11. Only gave it three listens so far, but I must say that I am very positively surprised. Wasn't too hyped after the singles (really liked Ranunculus though), but this is a lot better than Arche to me and maybe even than DSS, at least I find the fun factor a lot higher. Surprised that people are claiming that Kyo lost his range. Yeah, sure, he is past his prime, but the guy is still hitting fifth octave notes like it's nothing and sounds a lot more energetic than on Arche if you ask me. His performance in "Aka" is incredible and sounds super effortless, probably my favourite on the album.

    Super hyped to see them live this year, the times they've been here before never worked out for me. I listened to their whole discography again and felt like writing down my thoughts! I can't seem to get into "Macabre" at all, it has some great songs, but overall it feels a bit random to me. Guess I need to give it some more listens. "Cage" is an amazing song. Weirdly enough, I really like "TMOAB" by now, Kyo has huge moments here and especially the calmer songs are among the best material Diru has put out if you ask me. I like "Arche" a bit more now, but I feel like it is the first album that doesn't really push any boundaries, it almost seems like they tried to achieve something similar to sukekiyo, but didn't quite succeed. Also, Kyo's high notes really don't have the old strength anymore (live he sounds incredible though). I enjoy everything they've shown after "Arche" more than that album, I suppose I just like my Dir En Grey catchy haha

    I feel "Inconvenient Ideal" is so underrated compared to all the other ballads! As for the "Ranunculus" preview, I actually really enjoyed it and didn't find it boring at all. Maybe the visuals are distracting me a bit though, it's been a long time since I actually enjoyed the circus theme
