Music Review: Jupiter – TOPAZ

Music Review: Jupiter – TOPAZ

Some days ago visual kei band Jupiter had released their brand new single “TOPAZ”. As I wrote before the single was released in 2 different editions. I was able to get the regular edition, which include 3 songs. As I listened to the main track from the video, which band uploaded, I had big expectations for this single. I had listened to their album “The History of Genesis” and I think that this single is…

Music Review: DIV – Secret

Music Review: DIV – Secret

I’m not a big follower of DIV but I liked some of their past releases. So this is with some kind of re-discovery that I gave a listen to their second album “SECRET”, released on February 25th. This new album starts with “アイノウタ” , a soft introduction that sets a quite trippy atmosphere. It is followed by the main track “Secret Night”, which is in my opinion one of the best release from the band…

Music Review: One Ok Rock – 3xxxv5

ONE OK ROCK released their new album “3xxxv5” this month, ravishing their fans. I wrote a review about their single “Mighty Long Fall” in last August, being a bit disappointed. However, it didn’t prevent me to pre-order the album as soon as it was available, not loosing my trust in the band to give something good. The album begins with an introduction and already I have some chills. This introduction is so good and one…

Music Review: GUILD – Love Machine

Music Review: GUILD – Love Machine

ギルド (GUILD) has released their new single “LOVEマシーン” (Love Machine) on January the 1st. Without waiting any seconds from the announce of the release, I ordered two of the three different editions and here are my thoughts! “LOVEマシーン” is a song from Morning Musume, released in 1999. The band made a brilliant cover, including the end of the 90s spirit mixed with rock sounds. This is a festive track that will surely make you dance…

Music Review: Develop One's Faculties – フラスコ振ると天秤揺れた

Music Review: Develop One's Faculties – フラスコ振ると天秤揺れた

Develop One’s Faculties was formed this year, and already impressed me with their first PV preview for “フラスコ振ると天秤揺れた”. I got very curious to hear more so I bought this single that was released on December the 20th. The main track, “フラスコ振ると天秤揺れた”(Furasuko furu to tenbin yure ta) is a very dynamic song already from the beginning with this surprising yet addictive guitar line. The voice of Yuya gives more intensity and extent to this very good…

Music Review: Codomo Dragon – SODOM

  Codomo Dragon is back with their 7th single “SODOM”. Released on November 26th, the single was available in four different versions, with different side tracks for the two regular editions. The main track “SODOM” is a crazy track at the same image of the band’s usual compositions. With heavy guitar sounds in the verses and some shouts, the voice of Hayato softens the chorus without removing any of the loud rock atmosphere of the…
