I will begin by saying this is undoubtedly my favorite song and I will explain why.
My two favorite bands are Metallica and iron maiden and the two genres of music i appreciate are Heavy rock and Classical musical.
This song in my opinion marries classical and rock very well it is brilliant from start to finish. There is no fault I find with this song from the first to the very last second. I listen to it ever day and it never gets old. All the band members were on point here the piano is amazing, the drums relentless, the rhythm and lead guitar are on key and in sync very well it blows my mind every time, even the bass was pretty good and of course there is the orchestra which adds that extra flavor.
I love art of life. Thank you Yoshiki for this masterpiece and X Japan for the amazing execution. R.I.P hide.
