Initial'L(ycaon) [BEEN TOGETHER FOR TEN YEARS]

Recommended Posts

Listening to it finally. Thoughts: 

 

Definitely picks up from where Last Dance left off. This is a direct descendant from Lycaon that only has had the benefit of simmering beneath the surface for an year. In true visual kei fashion this meant that they probably have 20-30 songs in store. 

 

The guitarist's role as the driving melodic tool has faded into the background, again. The production booth has been ablaze and all that money Yuuki got from working at a 7/11 during the hiatus has been spent on the blaring synth string bed beneath his vocal hooks. I'd like this if I wasn't so over with them already. I have just tired of their sound, and it finally looks like this is a sound they'll be actually sticking with, because they've obviously been working towards it since Shadow, if not even earlier with Bakane and Akujo. They've domesticated themselves here in favor of a slicker, monochrome iteration of Camera Obscura's rough draft. Conceptually the year off did them good. 

 

I guess I could one day start vibing to ノスタルジア or 接吻〜くちづけ〜, but now I just don't care. It's not the first time it takes a while for me to get over all the technical limitations and tackiness of a vk band to start being able to peel off the layers of grime to access the very heart of its being and see what those cute bois are really up to.

nosutaruggia is v. good

 

I'm really unhappy with how much filler initial-l produces compared to late lycaon (their demo live was bloated with shit-tier tracks that mostly went to type a/b b-sides)

 

on a bright side, moonlight dank went top15-something on oricon, that's slightly better than major girugamesh in terms of sales (last dance peaked on #12 iirc, better than all of their other releases);

they're potentially the next big thing in vk, judging by that drama tie-in they have coming up too, yuuki good sis does her hustle right so far.

I really like this band. I just listened to their first single, and I'm blown away.

It's really catchy, can't get it out of my head haha

 

I'm gonna buy all types when I have the money (*~*) lol

And I'm excited for their new single in March.

 

I never listened to them when they were Lycaon, but I'm really digging Initial'L.

can someone explain why oricon abandoned their old page, and (seemingly) merged their stats with lycaon?

this is legitimately tragic, I imagine yuuki is already selling da ass just to meet credit card payments for moonlight down london mastering trip

 

literally no one seems to give a shit about their attempts at going mainstream

 

I'm expecting a new scarlet weave, a heavy album next year, and a rapid disband after that at this point.

HAPPY FUCKING 10 YEARS to the true fans. Who never switched up, and know Yuuki NEVER STOPPED killing it and didnt just start on Last fight and light my fire. Who appreciate versatility and the ability to make mainstream unique. Who appreciate a band who ignore their critiques and shit and piss on them. Who touch their open listeners and bring them to another realm and take care of them.

As celebration here is Yuuki's Net range

High:

Here is him and L wiping their ass with R-指定

Here is his Unclean range 

Spoiler

Low/sick/ + the video above 

 

Mid / Pain

High screams

 

High pitch squeal @ 1:11

 

Shrieks/ growls, and other shit press play on **88** and miss evil inside 

 

Here is 2 of his rare voices

Spoiler

 

 

Here is some examples him switching up the flow multiple times in a single song while staying on beat and shitting on all the rappers (something bands lack too BTW) 

Spoiler

 

 

 

here is him covering Linkin Park's battle symphony (shitting again)

 

Spoiler

 

 

Here is him at his best (in order, last being great)

Spoiler

Lycaon's best

 and here is proof that he does not need autotune or whatever and it's his real voice on cd 

Spoiler

 

 

Yuuki is the King of music, a Hyperversal vocalist with omniversal capability. He is the Phoenix Force and only continues to grow stronger overtime, absorbing life and singing with it. 

 

Since Nicki is MIA, This recent Eminem verse clap back to the general public should do the trick. :tw_joy: it fits perfectly to what haters are saying

Bin Laden with a pen, bodyin' again (Fire fly EP)
........
Back and forth, back and forth 
Like Jack Kevorkian's ass to court
"Rap mature! Why can't you be like Macklemore?" (huh?) ( want L  to be like Lycaon, whatever that means in delusional heads)
"Why you always gotta smack a whore?" (huh?) (L doing pop)
........
Something's gotta give, that's for sure (they think Initial'L is going to disband or needs too)
Yet you keep comin' back for more (haters say Initial'L sucks but are on all their post)
Not as raw as I was, “ 'Walk On Water' sucks” (Night and Day ect.)
Bitch, suck my dick!
Y'all saw the tracklist and had a fit 'fore you heard it
So you formed your verdict
While you sat with your arms crossed
Did your little reaction videos and talked over songs (chill!) (saw initial'L pictures and decided they suck)
Nah dog, y'all sayin' I lost it?
Your fuckin' marbles are gone (wait, Em!) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But nowadays, every flow, every cadence sound the same (skrrt) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
.............
It's 'cause I'm an alien, that's why I write 'til the page is outta space !!!!!!!!!

.......
How many fuckin' rappers did I go through? (A lot of bands split, but Lycaon didn't)
Dispel doubt, but you won't admit I smoked !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (also they killed every cover and inspiration they upgraded from.)
.....
But am I s'posed to sound like everything else out? (hard, screams)
'Cause I don't get compared to it, only myself now
................
But the only way I care is if I let myself down !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But what the fuck have I woke to? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
.......
Hoes couldn't roast me with the shit I wrote you
.......
You just called my shit trash?
Thank God, I rap better when the odds are stacked
"Revival's wack, I don't like the 'Zombie' track
And when he's talkin' that garbage psychotic crap
Where's your content at?
What's with all the conscious rap?
P!nk, Beyoncé this and Kehlani that" (yeah!)
I just add it to the fuel in my rocket pack
'Til I'm ready to respond, then I'ma launch it at 'em
Idiotic from the fuckin' embryonic sac
To the body bag, I'll be back
And when I am, I'll be at your fuckin' throat like— !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BTW  My Sad&Sickness booklet credits HiAme to rito (zero) while both of my Royal Order booklet credits eve. Since i consider eve or mio just a support drummer & bassist who wrote 5 or 6 of the songs and pitched in ideas for the first full album because: Yuuki always penned + Baka Ne was also not their composition + Yuuki said they always picked/designed their own outfits + Yuuki defined the band as one that changes form as quickly as a werewolf which they couldn't handle (though mio ended up in a band covering eros and bassing for born who wasnt hard at the time so ..?) + Hiyuu and Ichiro have displayed more skills on the instruments. So yeah I'm routing for Zero to have composed it. i pity  eve stans cause too loose a song must be a big blow to whatever their mind is clinging too (puppet manny, Avelcain)?

 

Also there is the lost of credit on Uso to onna to where rito credit gets change to Lycaon (though they are re-recording) so he could possibly not care for credit.  Maybe Eve suggested hi ame go on the album so he got credit? maybe since they knew he was leaving and they already recruited Hiyuu right in front of his face(JuleitxLycaon pics) that was a going away present? 1st degree, and red rum sound more similar to hi ame rather than the death game. TBH it sounds like satoshi though. I guess i would have to listen to puppet manny which i'm not going to do. Also their is them not playing hi ame after since eros came out while they've done other oldies, so eve has that in his favor; although they've never done other oldies too since Eros in which Lycaon members have full/partial credit for the composition. 

 

If these bitches release 2 more singles before the album and pull some RO or UTUT shit with barley any new songs unike CO ima be pissed. The fuck is taking so long not rush perfection

El Diss to the Masses

[verse 1]

Yuuki rides the riffs like a harley bitch, makes u cum quick cause he’s on some narley shit, like a magic witch or a vampiric like get some garlic and sticks, people blame his lips and hips like they’re a harlot’s width, don’t get mad your music library is dusty and your ears cants cum, “L is generic” and “has peers now” that so called fan dumb, take your personal issues home bust out and tears and ask why they aint pay your ransom, I guess your parents knew you couldn’t be anything but a crackhead, or they gave up after they dropped u and saw your literal cracked head, explains how “Lycaon is dead” is the sass said, and how the same folks still be on every post of their talking to em like they can see past dead, your mixing the wrong coke with rum, lace that with L’s longevity it’s killing you like rope in the slums, no wonder everything about you contradicts like soap and bums, Yuuki, Zero, Sato are still imperial bitch, killing bands and artist like serial bitch, eating genres like cereal bitch, you fav sells more but they can’t match L’s material bitch, hoes welcome to the twilight zone, know your nothing but homeless mutts with light bones, your skin rockin that white tone, your delusional and meds you might own

[hook]

(Lycaon still here, Fully naked yeah bare, haters on beers, Ya fav gone I know it’s not fair

L keeps elevating no stairs,Throwing them Phoenix spears, L are the kings, the best out there) x2 

[verse 2]

None of your favs can fuck with Yuuki’s cadence, he always comes heavy your favs weightless, want to see L fall get on the waitlist, you and your favs pussy and it’s tasteless, listened to you favs and my ear bleeds I guess they’re sadists, you guys Masochists, so let me put you in the Red Circus, maybe then you’ll find your purpose, because the mentally ill are called freak, to busy under every L post to recall sleep, do yourself a favor and count all sheep, cause you aint the shit just a tall sheep, and we Initially werewolves we claw sheep, Yall the type to be insecure and project over huge or small feet, even if you hater were men your balls weak, you praise anything that’s hard even though it’s sounds the same you frauds are ridiculous, it must be that untreated syphilis, Initial’L still magic and fire like Malificent, every song they do is like 6 shots to the head that what I call MAGnificent, it’s not their fault you’re a bastard, so stop preaching bullshit like a homophobic pastor, I know it’s suck that in band lifespan L past ya……. Favs, but that’s know way to behave, thanks to L it’s always a gay night, able to dance from sunset to day light, I buy their music but I’m the one who is getting paid right, cause L’s music continues to stick out like pink dye, Yuuki’s flow sick like pink eye, so be like L and think wise, if you want hard listen to -OZ-, they’re a gram to L’s oz, they get you buzzed but L will have you ODed

[hook]

(Lycaon still here, Fully naked yeah bare, haters on beers, Ya fav gone I know it’s not fair

L keeps elevating no stairs,Throwing them Phoenix spears, L are the kings, the best out there) x2 

[verse 3]

If Lycaon wanted to go major wouldn’t they have waited to sound seemingly tarnished, yet they still boding bands covered in red reeling Carnage, despite the hate in to your vain like venom, that got you blacked out like venom, L still going to take your flawed thoughts and dead em, “Lycaon died after the royal order,” “no way everything else before eros was stolen – buglar,” “bitch please masochist red circus is what got them that tour!” “nah Camera Obscura was when I ate everything else was back four………” points, I guess I just solved the mystery -- zoinks

[hook]

(Lycaon still here, Fully naked yeah bare, haters on beers, Ya fav gone I know it’s not fair

L keeps elevating no stairs,Throwing them Phoenix spears, L are the kings, the best out there) x2 

[outro]

Yall want this don’t play dumb. Ahahahahahahahahahahaha get off Lycaon’s dick go hate on a band that deserves it.

Shout out to the kings again for making push my pen.

 

Bye gotta a album to learn 😘

SO, I would like to make myself at home in this thread please and thank you.

 

First of all, I'm fresh out of retirement so if someone could drop me a sentence or two what went on with Lycaon? Pretty please? You people seem to know your stuff. They were never on my radar but boy oh boy am I catching up with anything and everything these fine specimens ever made. 

 

Secondly not that I'm not loving all the new stuff (the intro to Can you feel it? will feature in any wet dreams to come) but the image difference between Lycaon and Initial'L is giving me whiplash. Is this the direction they're planning to go? 

 

Also, THE END, good yes? yes. 

 

EDIT: I was searching for ways to throw money at them and just found that this FB page exists since yesterday, and insta possibly not much longer.
