December 8, 2016 Leave a comment

It’s freezing here in the central US which appropriately points to this track. Sad that I’ve never seen them perform this song live.

music review: lynch – AVANTGARDE

September 18, 2016 Leave a comment

 

It’s become clear to me that every album lynch releases, they move up the ranks of my top favorite bands. They’re now ranked 5th on my list. One of the things I love about their discography is that all of their song titles are in English. That alone saves me time of retagging their tracks from kanji to romaji. AVANTGARDE is an improvement from their previous work, D.A.R.K.-In the Name of Evil-. The typical lynch fashion of alternative metal with more oomph. More memorable songs here, however there are still filler tracks throughout. If I had to pick a favorite song here, that would be UNELMA. It’s got the same song writing characteristic from abingdon boys school and the style from the GazettE making this a very easy song to get into.

Highlights: UNELMA, PHANTOM, F.A.K.E.

Worthwhile: EVIDENCE, PLEDGE, THE OUTRAGE SEXUALITY, FAREWELL, KILLING CULT

Fillers: DAMNED, PRAYER, NEEDLEZ

Rating: 8/10

My Top Music Picks of 2015

January 1, 2016 Leave a comment

2015 was a great year for music releases.

Album of the Year: the GazettE – DOGMA

DOGMA is the strongest album from the GazettE by far. After all these months, I still come back to it. DOGMA, INCUBUS, and OMINOUS are the best tracks. It’s impressive how the band keeps all the songs catchy in the midst of the very dark and heavy tones. The first (not the intro) and last song have a progressive style song writing that makes it stand out than any songs the band has come out with. It’s a must listen for any metal listeners out there.

 

Honorable Mentions:

Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas – Feeling of Unity

61zmfqnv9xl

It must really suck for these guys because PHASE 2 was already a great album but somehow, Feeling of Unity surpasses it. Now they gotta find some way to make the next album even better! Favorite tracks are Party Boys and The Demon Called Careless. Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas to me is like the better version of Blood Stain Child.

 

lynch. – D.A.R.K.-In the Name of Evil-

I don’t know what lynch was thinking when naming this album but it’s the worst I’ve heard this year. Aside from that, it’s still a good alternative metal album. D.A.R.K. and Fallen are highlight tracks for me. You’ll hear plenty of satisfying double bass drumming and breakdowns.

 

coldrain – VENA

Man, coldrain has come a long way since their debut album, Final Destination. Everything in VENA screams improvement. I really hope these guys find success internationally since their songs are sung in good actual english. VENA is nice post hardcore/alternative album worth your time. The Story and Whole are my favorite songs in the album.

 

she – Chiptune Memories

she does it again! This time, it sounds like its gone back to the original chiptune roots. The entire album is fantastic, so if you’re into electronic or chiptune music, look no further. The title song stands out the most.

 

SawanoHiroyuki[nZk] – o1

o1-album2

Lastly, there’s Hiroyuki Sawano. This man does pop music right by using mostly actual instruments and writes melodic songs that’s not generic garbage you hear everyday on the radio. There are a few rock songs in the album but the rest is pop. s-AVE is an amazing track that has an emotional tone that sounds like it needs a storytelling music video to make it more compelling. Any songs with Aimer singing is bound to be gold.

 

Single of the Year: the GazettE – UGLY

2015 has got to be the GazettE’s year. For them to come out with a great album and an excellent single following afterwards is really impressive. UGLY is a sick track and the b-sides actually sound better than hearing it from the previews. It makes me feel excited for whatever they’re gonna release next.

Shinjuku Station Bumper #8 – DAMNABLE

September 13, 2015 Leave a comment

Note: Youtube tends to make my audio off sync by a split second with the video no matter how many codecs or containers I tried. Might as well deal with this for now until I put up a compilation for download.

This was a bit of a weird coincidence since ShinStation Europe announced to show Berserk series while I was editing this.

lynch. – EVOKE

August 9, 2015 Leave a comment

As expected from lynch, they pump out the kind of melodic metal I look for. Their next single “ETERNITY” will be released on September 2nd followed by their next album in the coming months. This is one of the very few bands I’ve been keeping up with.

Song of the Day: Lynch. – OBLIVION (+mini review)

April 17, 2014 Leave a comment

My favorite track of GALLOWS. The overall album is pretty good, sort like a continuation of EXODUS. Though I would have preferred a EP instead of a full length album so they can pour out memorable quality songs rather than make mediocre ones for the sake of putting out more. Some may complain about the sound production for being too high on its treble and bass equalizer. I didn’t have much of a problem with it so your mileage may vary.

Rating: 7.5/10
