the GazettE Ninth
Another day, another unimpressive The GazettE release. Not quite the literal bottom of the Ninth I had anticipated, but I'd be lying if I said the latest album made for a pleasurable listening experience. Sure, the offering's got slightly more variation going on and the instrumentation in itself is by no means horrid, but the quality is so all over the place one won't be able to think straight. Nowhere near as cohesive as Dogma was plus lacking the high points that particular LP had, much less NIL and ofc DIM. Also, ENOUGH WITH THOSE GRATING SE INTROS. Good friggin' grief, Kanagawa boys...
Yonin Bayashi Ishoku-Sokuhatsu
Graced with a far out mammal that's got eyes as sanguine as Red Delicious apples, Ishoku-Sokuhatsu from front to back makes for a listening experience bohemian and lucid. For a full-length record that only features 5 tracks, Yonin Bayashi make the small number of pieces count hard. With an overarching style rooted in prog, the band's debut LP also sports influences of straight rock, jazz, psychedelia, and even symphonic touches; said sounds are pulled off in impeccable fashion. Honestly there isn't one fault I can find within Ishoku-Sokuhatsu. It's eclectic, tightly-knit, and offers plenty in the way of resi
Kanye West ye
In the words of Mr. Fuck-You-Hard-on-the-Sink West, I've only got this to say concerning ye: HUH?!?!?! ...That is all.
Bleeding Through Love Will Kill All
Six years after the band's fauxnale dropped, Bleeding Through from Orange County have blessed the masses with another album titled Love Will Kill All. Full-length #8 holds 12 tracks that mostly do a solid job recalling that late '90s/early '00s hxc style with the symphonic, melodeath, and bm influences still accounted for - so you bet your asshole it isn't a radical departure from the outfit's preceding efforts. Assuming one can get past the lack of originality and hideous cover art, these dudes' (and babe's) newest addition to the discography is the most fun I've had hearing a Bleeding Through LP from start
CZARFACE Every Hero Needs a Villain
Octaviagrace Polyhedra
Then a quintet at the time of this effort's recording, Octaviagrace managed to deliver a fundamentally fine EP in Polyhedra. 'Fine,' 'technically sound,' and 'remote from reality' are probably the best ways to sum up the material. There's nothing inherently off or bad about it, but it also lacks an identity and staying power - especially for something that lasts 24 minutes duration-wise. Storing in elements of rock, prog, and power metal, I won't hesitate to say that the Tokyo-based act show promise, rather Octaviagrace haven't unlocked said potential yet. If there's one track that stands high above the others, it's
