D-Yami yori kurai doukoku no A capella to bara yori aki jounetsu no aria Visual kei song and video review

Man what a long title for a song. Come on D ,how do you expect me to remember all of this?LOL! just so you know this song title is usually shortened to Yami yori kurai. I decided that it wouldn’t be right not to write the entire name of the song.

This song ,This song !!!!!! This song is intense. So intense that the first time i heard it i was left speechless . I’m not exaggerating i literally was speechless. like uh what just happened. Then came the chill that spread all throughout my body and my tear duct decided to act all weird. I didn’t watch the video until a day later . Why do i feel the to tell you this? Because when i watched the video i became speechless yet again ,and for some reason my stupid tear duct got all emotional .I dont even know. I know you dont believe me  so one day ill make a reaction video to a song. you’ll see then that I’m completely  one hundred percent serious .

You want to judge me .Have you seen the video or heard the song?

Warning : This video and song triggers speechlessness,chills all throughout the body,weird dumb tear ducts, and pressing the replay button over and over.

I warned you so i am in no way responsible for what this song does to your body.

Im sorry for messing with your body but i must share this majesty with the entire world.

This song has a mixture of operatic  clean and unclean vocals all done by one person Asagi-Sama!! Yes Asagi is sama* to me ❤ . with a voice like his it cant be helped.

now that im done fangirling about Asagi-sama its time to fangirl about this entire song and video.

(this ones going to be a little long too as i really love this song and could spend hours talking about it.Sorry guys.)

So now the synopsis of Yami yori kurai  doukoku no A capella to bara yori akai jounetsu no aria the lyrics :

English translation:

My dear rose. oh You are all of me in this world.
In now, the past, and the future. I sing for you.

an abyss a voice that creeps on the ground an a cappella lamentation* darker than darkness
a heart fulfilled a voice that falls from the sky an aria* of a passion redder than the rose

I never know pleasure to live.
Why was I born such ugly?
(Why?) (You wish?) (Your mind?) (x2)

just once, I want to see how it is to love even from underneath this ugly mask
to be born into this world without knowing love engulfed by darkness as it is

You must choose! Come with me!

Nobody can stop me!

I never know pleasure to live.
Why was I born such ugly?
(Why?) (You wish?) (Your mind?)

only lamplight scorches my heated breast for I cannot forget the end of this love
come now, it’s alright to go it’s like you are completely engulfed by light

If you will forget, but even so I will remember forever and ever.

My dear rose. You are all of me in this world.
In now, the past, and the future. I sing for you.

to be born in this world without knowing love engulfed by darkness as it is…

Dude wtf how is this not being put into a book of the worlds best poetry??? i dont understand. these lyrics are amazing.

i don’t feel that these lyrics are a story more like a plea or a poem expressing the feeling of someone who feel unloved in a world of darkness you can feel the pain in the lyrics  .

I feel like this song is a cry to the gods that this person wants to be treated normal even  though his life is complete darkness i feel like the rose is someone he admires and loves and cherishes but that many there people feel the same way so he knows that he will never be able to capture their heart,however he wants this person to notice to remember but if they dont it will be okay because he will always remember the beauty that made his heart sing that made him feel less unworthy .

 

Now on to the video synopsis of Yami yori kurai doukoku to A capella to bara yori akai jounetsu no aria:

I hope you’ve watched this video . If not scroll up and watch it . Now !!! Go  do it!!! Dont you dare read the synopsis of a video your haven’t watched.

The video starts off with a beautifully shining chandelier . even though the chandelier is bright the room around it seems dark. You than see a Asagi-sama holding a mask over his face standing in front of a woman in a white dress. it than shows him in front of the  rest of the band and he  opens his arms with a rose in his right hand.

i feel like the chandelier is perhaps  a symbol of the beauty  that the person (Asagi-sama) see and love i think that Asagi-sama wearing the mask shows that he has a longing to be beautiful to  be loved by the beautiful. But than he takes off his mask showing her his true face which is raw and “ugly” i notice that while he sings he hold on to the rose tightly. he holds on to what is beautiful tightly . the girl in the white dress at one point  walks into the room with a candle and Asagi-sama puts the mask on showing that he is afraid to open with those he finds beautiful i also notice that the mask only covers half of his face the part with which he is insecure perhaps. i feel like he is begging when is asking come with me he is desperate he really want whoever it is to see that he truly is beautiful. he crawls on the floor he yells

when he sings the part “if you will forget but even so i will remember forever and ever”  he reaches up to the sky as if to hold on to the memory but when he sing “my dear rose you are all of me in this world in now the past and the future i sing for you “and he takes off his mask i think he realizes that he can never be accepted because in the end  the rose he holds on so tightly to breaks and is no more. Perhaps he learns a lesson that you shouldn’t on focus on the material thing that beauty is in your face but in your heart.

“to be born in this world with out knowing love engulfed by darkness as it is ”
This song is beautiful no matter how you look at it . I hope that you found some reason to like it.  I dont even want to talk about how the members are dressed in this video i dont feel like ts important whats important to me is the words and the way the music makes me feel. Thats whats really important.

*sama- a Japanese honorific you use for one you greatly admire often used for gods and other dieties

*Lamentation- the passionate expression of grief or sorrow (also like this song)

*Aria-a long accompanied song in a solo voice typically in an opera (this song is sort of like an aria)

D-Der konig der Dunkelheit SONG REVIEW !!!!!!! <3

YES ! im so happy to be doing a review on this AMAZING song! I love everything about this video ,except that it wasn’t longer. I actually found the band D on accident when i searched up the letter d instead of the band die/may . I did not expect to find such a great band ,and i instantly fell in love with Asagi’s voice. Its operatic and harsh he has an amazing vocal range.

Der konig der dunkelheit is a song  by the band D first released in 2011 it is sung in German and in Japanese and has a very  hardcore and medieval sort of sound . The video is like a story. Der konig der dunkelheit roughly translates to the king of darkness, However some of the German in the song is a little wrong. The song n both its original Japanese/German and translated to English has a poetic feel.

Watch the amazing video:

 

Im sorry guys this is going to be a long review this song and video is just too good to keep it short.Bear with me ill try to make this enjoyable

My synopsis of the lyrics: i feel like the reason the lyrics were sung in both japaese and german was to make it more mysterious and to reach different audience .I feel  like the lyrics are also a story .

I will leave my throne behind to go and fight
As a sign of love for my people, I will not retreat
The emperor of darkness, my own body will be my shield

Ist denn die Sonne nicht ubrig? (because the sun no longer remains?)
In exchange for a distant death
Die Mond und der Sternhimmel  (under the moon and the starry sky)
I shine out
Da sagt der Konig Ich brauche euch (the king says i need you)
Take my blood and live
Und kusse die Rose (and kiss the rose)
This is the beginning of the night of awakening

The potion of eternal life burns my throat like sand
Setting the black beasts upon me

With my kingdom crumbling before my eyes
There is just one thing I must do now
So the royal bloodline does not die out

Warnen  (warning)
No one can harm me
zielen  (aim)
There is no hesitation in my attack
Schneid (cut)
Let the blood that flows to my heart
Be a crimson rose that never loses its pride

This cooling power overwhelms me
Like a horse with wings on its back

Those who block our way
Cry out to their own shadows that they are no longer the enemy
Facing the point of my sword, they pledge

I will leave my throne behind to go and fight
As a sign of love for my people, I will not retreat
The emperor of darkness, my own body will be my shield

Der Konig der Dunkelheit  (the king  of the darkness)
That name will shake the world to its foundations
In the blink of an eye

This is the best translation i have found so  far its very poetic.

I feel like this song is the story of  a man seeking power to protect those he loves and a king who lends his power by giving away his sacred blood  therefore letting his precious bloodline live on . what better than power. The video offers something completely different.

My synopsis of the video: after watching  this video a few more times i realize its actually not so different from the story of the lyrics at all. In the beginning asagi stand up from his throne in anger tosses his cape around everything is bright there is light shining on the globe ( i see this as his world) He proceeds to stare into a Gothic vial of blood  mixes it into some foreign liquid and drinks it.its seem as though the other member of the band which i see as the people of his palace  are frozen in a state on fear they hold roses in there hands and stare off into the distance seemingly waiting for their king to save them.After Asagi (the king) drinks the blood,he begins to transform. His eyes flash red his pupil shrink. He seems to regret for a few seconds drinking the blood he throws as he throw his hands out in agony.

(sorry that the gif is so long i got caught u in the beauty while i made it)

he tears the curtain from his room letting the moonlight spill in showing that he is indeed the king of darkness.He falls to the ground the venom pulsating through his veins. he gets up  cuts his arm and it heals instantly. He goes back and sits on his throne again. Darkness begins to spread on the globe ( once again what i take to be his world) . For the rest of the video everything remain dark, yet not gloomy. I feel power in the darkness and in the kings eyes.

i really love the effects used in this video the way the show Asagi’s veins pulsating in his neck and the way the moon seems to shine way more brightly than it should have.

The costumes that the members wear are so intricate.  I dont think we could expect any less  from D .The scenery looks so natural i almost want to take a trip and find this castle and live there ❤ ❤

sorry that this one is so long.I had to go into detail.  Had to do a synopsis and everything. I really love this video and this song .Im so glad i happened across it o accident. It is beautiful. It is powerful. It is everything i love in a song .

Remember guys, fight for your throne ,protect your people, let your power be your shield!!! ❤

Stay kei

Orb -Matenrou opera Song review

So lately this song has inspired me quite a bit its feel is just very warm and inviting. I love Matenrou opera very much. I think their music is wonderful . Im sad about Anzi’s departure and i wish him well. Matenrou opera has announced that they will be continuing the band with the remaining members. That is very good news as i love their music.

The reason why im right bout this song is because i recently watched an AMAZING live performance of  Sono’s voice was amazing everything was extraordinary it got me thinking about the song and video and i fell in love with it even more.

Sadly i could not find an English translation of the song but that will not stop me from talking about how much i love this song

my favorite thing about the song is the music .I know that sound kind of cliche or whatever but the music is very calm and easy to listen you kind just want to throw your arms open and sway  while listening . Thats the way the music makes  you feel.

i love how in the video all of the lights  and than  when you see the theater form  the bands view . the look the members have are very cool as well its nice to see Sono with black hair ❤  and his red eyes are pretty cool as well . I love Ayame’s red hair and Yuu hair in her ponytail is pretty cool .

 

seriously  though i love Matenrou opera they make music that is both hardcore and melodic with very intense meaning and Sono’s  voice just magnifies the beauty in the songs.

More Matenrou opera songs to listen to: tengoku no aru basho,helios ( i wrote about this one) ,pandora,burning soul, innovational symphonia,

 

Scarlet Valse – Larme review

so i first listened to this song yesterday. OMG i have not stopped listening to it since it has literally been on repeat for like 24 hours now i need help this song is just too good and the video only makes it worse

So this band is called scarlet valse the lead singers name is kakeru  the band was started in 2011 the other members are: You ( guitar) Jun (guitar) takuya(bass) hiroki (drums).

give them a try i fell in love with this band when i heard there first song !!!

Sadly i could not find the lyrics for this song so i could translate them as well.

Thing i like about Scarlet Valse [Larme] :

the clarity : the video is so clear and clean the white background is flawless i dont why this caught my attention but it did.

The outfits: Especially Kakeru and takuyas. All of the outfits are so elaborate and so detailed its hard to miss this though.

Kakeru’s hair and makeup: oh my god kakeru is just perfection i mean just look at him

kakeru.jpg

❤ but his hair is just really cool he has my favorite hair in the band !!!

the music: its so emotional i cant even translate the song and i can already tell what its about its just so beautiful i  ❤ the piano intro its so soft and mellow and when it switches to guitar its not so harsh its subtle .

so yep thats all i can say about this song because im actually listening to it right now see you later i need to jam

Stay kei

The GazettE – Invisible wall

Ive known this song for as long as its been out  which is year. Im a big fan of the gazette this song is amazing probably their most popular.

The GazettE – The Invisible Wall:

ah this video is refreshingly simple sometimes flashing lights and wild camera movements just aren’t my thing . The simplicity of this video is satisfying.

So to be completely honest when I first heard this song I did not know that any of it was in English ( its okay to laugh). Ruki’s accent is so thick I couldnt tell until after I looked up the lyrics. its okay though because I after I looked up the lyrics I was stunned. They are perfect. I dont understand how they tie English and Japanese in so well together.

Its really good Great job The Gazette  ruki_the_invisible_wall_gif_6_by_beforeidecay1996-d4vh5j4.gif

Invisible wall lyrics:

Pig is that soaked in soup of crime
Is it a pain of the children whom you murdered, hate yourself.

In the maze without an end,
why do you still breathe?

Gareki no shita de shinjitsu ga notauchimawaru e wa,
Naniyorimo fukai (The invisible wall),

Kodoku zouo shitto fuan,
Kyomu ni saita muhyoujou naniyorimo omoi (The invisible wall)

Sanjou oou fujouri ni omoeta warau aozora

In the maze without an end,
ayamachi ni obore.
In the maze without an end,
why do you still breathe?

Sorrow made you,
Sorrow made you,
Sorrow made you,
In the bottom of the dark, dead sea,

Sorrow made you,
Sorrow made you,
Sorrow made you,
Tsugunai tsuzuke and die.

Pig is that soaked in soup of crime.

In the maze without an end, hate yourself.
Ayamachi ni obore,
In the maze without an end, hate yourself,
why do you still breathe?

Sorrow made you,
Sorrow made you,
Sorrow made you,
In the bottom of the dark, dead sea,
Sorrow made you,
Sorrow made you,
Sorrow made you,
Aijou mo shiranu kodoku na parade,
Sorrow made you,
Sorrow made you,
Sorrow made you,
In the bottom of the dark, dead sea
Sorrow made you,
Sorrow made you,
Sorrow made you,
Tsugunai tsuzuke and die.

Sorrow made you

In the maze without an end…
Why do you still breathe?

Very great lyrics.

lastly I just want to say that I love a visual kei band video with two different styles ,and a switch of scenery . So this video really gets my attention. I love ruki’s hat and his leather gloves ❤ ❤

well guys

stay kei

Aicle Starmine Pv :

 

So Cute !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i  swear my heart cant take this much cuteness .i love Emiru’s voice in this song  song. This acutally happens to be my favorite (among other amazing songs) by Aicle. i actually didnt see the video until about a year after i heard the song. i watched the video on youtube and fangirled.

Lyrics:

“[… Star mine… ]
Chiisana toro kara hikomu shian datta boku wa, chotto wa otona ni natte
Taisetsu na mono ya dai kirai na mono wo
Sukoshii manantanda

Naze okumo no hoshi no naka
Meguri aimashita
Zetsumyou na timing de kimi ga awarete kureta yo ne

Daisuki na hito wo omotte mitemo
Umaku mienai ne madoro koshii ne
Sentimental hoshi furu yoru yo
Kanawanu omoi wo uketomete…

Ureshikute nari tari kanashikute warau nante
Jinsei tte nandaka taihen
Kurikaesu hibi ya kaga konda mono mo, boku wa suiki na noni…

Baketsuni mizu wo hirete uchi ageru star mine
Zekkou no rotesshonde ni tari no koto wo terashite.

Ari yurete kotoba narabete mitemo
Dore ga iika nante zenzen wakaranai
Hana hi no ato wa sabishiku naru kara
Ima wa sono tedake…

Ima sara kirei goto nanka, kikitakunai yo
Ori hime to hiko hoshi nante zenzen… Romantic janai

Daisuki na hito wo omotte mitemo
Umaku mienai ne mendou kusai ne
Sentimental hoshi furu yoru ni
Kanawanu omoi wo uchiagete

Semete onegai
Mada kienai de ne star mine..”

( there are actually some minor errors in this the parts that say Starmine should read suttaa-main, timing should read taimingu, sentimental should be senchimentaru, and romantic should be romannchiku) sorry guys i got this off the internet its not fully correct dont kill anyone.
