About the title
If you're wondering why there's xxx in the title...
Asamack announced they will release their new album at their nama. This time it will be FULL album, not mini, so it will include 12 (!) tracks. I believe the three of them will be Material, Stray Sheep and Ghost Radio while the 9 other will be completely new covers / songs.
Asamack announced the title of CD~ Also that it will have many new pieces. But among others: Karakuri Pierrot and Ghost Radio but different ones. So probably another arrange or a song in Ghost Radio's universe.
Yeeeeesssss, Jack came to Tokyo. At their nama 24.01.2012 they announced they were recording Kimi Reflection (with Marutan failing at falsetto parts, when he ended his part he just... went to sleep while Jack was recording lol.) and Jack was recording Scissorhands solo - apparently in a bit changed arrangement. wktk~
Release data was postponed!
Sooo it turned out Marutan was today recording again! For whole 5 hours. Just him. He was recording his original solo piece - called Niji (Rainbow). So funny since even Jack don't know how it sounds like ww Well it looks like they recorded what they had to ealier because Jack couldn't stay too long in Tokyo, so Marutan's solo pieces are recorded just now huh. The other one is 僕だけにみえる月 (The Moon only I can see), probably with accompany of Hidenori's guitar.
They finally told us all songs and order of the songs. So the last Marutan's solo is Karakuri Pierrot. He was joking that when he was recording Ayatsuri Pierrot he was all the time mistaking those titles and somehow it turned out like this. Jack said Blood of Rose was like LAST BOSS for him, totally hard song to sing! He often complained that he won't be able to pull it off, but sunaP and PUPI was perfect doS and somehow he managed. He said he thought his other solo Gemini was already super hard - unless he had to record Blood of Rose, so it's the hardest song no 2. They will play Blood of Rose at PUPI's nama next week - I want to hear it now dammit. They joked that Ghost Radio - song about destroyed world - is the end of their album, proper end wwwww But fortunaltely the last is calm, warming Aryosha song.
They played Stand by xxx. I'm enchanted! It's happy-go-lucky maji 1000% Asamack song! So cheerful and gdgd (Jack: CHOTTO HAYAKU! Marutan: Chotto matte! wwwwwwwww). And DoyaP... I mean Hidenori-san's guitar solo is so cool too. SIMPLY AWESOME.
Last Boss aka Blood of Rose. Is. Simply. Epic. It starts suddenly, going all out. Kinda dark, majestatic, quick melody - reminds me of Kalafina or Kajiura Yuki (especially Kara no Kyoukai). And it's just perfect for Jack's voice, but I can clearly see why he stands it was the most difficult piece he had ever sang. This piece involves much of voice modulating, singing in semi-suitable level, changing levels quite often. And there are really high parts and long high parts too. It's just on the verge of what Jack can and cannot sing. Plus there is hell of epic choruses and synchro parts (all done by Jack-only). Seriously, I totally love it.
And I had started to wonder whether I should buy it or not (it's super pricey for me + shipping), but with each song I was just thinking that it's really awesome. And now I totally love whole album. ARGH.
