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

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

Femme Fatale-Freya

I LOVE this song and am so excited to finally be writing this review

 

Omg i love this song . Im not exaggerating ive listened to this song at least 50 times within the last month.I dont know why even while i knew Femme Fatale was a visual kei band , I didnt believe that  Kaya ( the lead singer) was a man . I mean he hits notes most girls struggle with easily and he is extremely gorgeous. Like if i were a straight guy I might  fall in love with him .

I pretty much know all of Femme fatale’s songs this happens to be my favorite. Freya is  dark , alluring, and I feel like a Femme Fatale when i listen to this song.

I was extremely bummed when i found out they disbanded a few months ago. Now Femme Fatale shall live on in memory .

I love this video because its ust so Gothic (my favorite thing) ,and yet the melody is so alluring and light and airy the way the notes flow with the music.

I love the lyrics to this song  my favorite part being “Mou nanimo kowakunai wa” Meaning :  im not afriad of anything

Lastly i a obsessed with Kaya’s dress in this video like OMG i want to get married in this dress is so puffy and pretty and goddamn Kaya is beautiful in it !!!!

Ps: Isnt that gif just amazing kaya looks so great ❤ flawless ❤  *such high quality cant look away*

BatAAr will break through !!!

Im  jumping right into this one. If you dont know who BatAAr is, their most recent music video is below .Watch it first than read the rest of  this blog.

 

 

So what did you think ? isnt this perfect for a fighting game like TEKKEN ? i think the song  is  the perfect combo of catchy and  hardcore. The video is visually stunning! Endigo, Patrik,Simon,and Tobias have slayed again with another kick-ass video.

It is no wonder they were one of the only bands EVER to be featured in TEKKEN 7 the  highly anticipated Fighting  game.

BatAAr is  great band and in my opinion it is even BETTER now that Endigo has joined as the lead singer .I have been shocked by how much thought and detail they’ve put into their music .

It makes me really sad that they are so underrated they should have so much more fame in my opinion.

Which bring me to another topic, Is it okay to call a band that is not from Japan a visual kei band? I have heard a lot of different opinions on this. I believe that any band can call themselves visual kei since visual kei is a style . I believe that you should treat  all bands with respect because its hard out there, believe me.

So, yes I consider BatAAr a visual kei band because they consider themselves a visual kei  band, and the also have visual kei style.

I want you all to check out BatAAr. Give them the attention they deserve .Subscribe to their channel, like their videos, become a fan .

Stay Kei
