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

❤ 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

BatAAR is Amazing! song review Always Die Young

So yes i know im aware that ive already done a review on BatAAr before but they really deserve this. they have made AMAZING music this year. im so proud of all their accomplishments. This is for you Patrik, Endigo,Simon and Tobias. I love you all you guys rock (hoping that they find this someday)

So on to Always die young. This song is practically my theme song. i am obsessed with every second. every guitar riff every note endigo sing every slam of tobias’s drum .

Is it normal to be this obsessed with a song…? Maybe not but who cares yolo (cringey right?)

Watch The Video:

 

Yes! Just Yes thats it this video and song is just so amazing

i think the best part is that the put so much work into patrik wrote the lyric and the music simon edits the video after its shot and their friend Petri (whom ill  talk about later) does their hair. Its no wonder eveything is so perfect

The effects in this video are mad good thus making this video Kickass

I could talk about this song all day but id think youd want to hit me so lets get started

Always die young song and video review:

The lyrics:

All this time I’ve waited
All this time I’ve lost
I know I’ll die young
Our sun sets for another day

Your misery loves company
So stay right there
Far away from me
Your blood is as thin as your facade
The future begs for answers I don’t have

NO CUTS NO GLORY
NO CUTS NO GLORY

Though there is a will
There’s just no way
Bare your satin neck

What little we have left
Won’t keep me from walking away
I’ve heard it all before
This hollow truth
What is the meaning of a life without answers?

Through all this time I’ve waited
All this time I’ve lost
I know I’ll die young
Our sun sets for another day

NO CUTS NO GLORY
This is not your story
NO CUTS, NO GLORY
So stay right there, far away from me

What little we have left
Won’t keep me from walking away
I’ve heard it all before
These hollow answers

Through all this time I’ve waited
All this time I’ve lost
I know I’ll die young
Our sun sets for another day

Think back on time we wasted
And all the time we lost
For all it’s worth we know
We’re gonna die young
Our sun sets for another day

The velvet sun sets another day

My thoughts: Dude these lyrics flow so well  cant even wrap my head around it . the lyrics just speak to you they’re powerful and just elaborate (thank you patrik for creating such poetic lyrics)

The music: the one word i would use to describe this music is Melodic even though it hardcore it still, you still could sway to it especially the chorus  . altogether this music is just fantastic i love it

The Blood: This video is so gory . I Love It !!! when patrik licks his hands ❤ lol xD its great there is not much more to say . All of them look like death i love it. Their acting was pretty damn good as well

 

So im keeping this short ( in hopes that you dont tear your hair out) Please fully support BatAAr if you like this song buy it for a dollar on itunes or google play !!

Stay kei ( or in terms of BatAAr Stay Vicious)

Yohio -Sky Limit

So as you may have read from me about me section of my blog. Yohio  is one of my Favorite singers. Probably my favorite actually .

I have been a devoted heart breaker ( name for fans of yohio) for years now. I know all of his songs. Swedish, Japanese ,and English. I love his new band Disreign . I do not have a favorite Yohio song (all of them are perfect). The one I’m  talking about Sky limit. You can watch the video below.

So to make this even better I re-watched this video 3 more time .OMG its still just as great !!!

I love the whole cute/hardcore thing there were times when he screamed and it was cute the guitar riffs got harder than softer. I  love the two styles boyish than girly  I love them both. The theme Be yourself was practically Screamed throughout this video. I remember watching an interview  with yohio . He talked about how growing up was hard for him because he didn’t look masculine.  I think this video was a representation of him accepting that. I think this was him saying he is perfect the way he is. I agree YOHIO is perfect the way he is. So is this video.

Things I love about Sky limit (other than everything):

I love the  the colors:  My favorites being the bright blue and bright pink  background when he was dolled up . I like the color of the pictures frames  depicting boy yohio and girl Yohio. I love the different colors of the objects in the white based room I also like the void of color when he was dressed like a guy .

I love the switch: what I mean by that is  when the music changes from hard to soft Yohio also changes , i find that really cute . My favorite part is when he is playing the guitar riff and it switches between both Yohio’s. His screams are great.

The way the lyrics flow: the lyrics are simple and catchy.The English translation is great as well but I prefer reading the lyrics in Japanese.

The music: I love the way the music is soft and cute in the beginning and then it gets harder as the guitar kicks in and it does that throughout the song. It also ties back in with the  whole Be yourself theme

 

ps: Did anyone else see buta sama on the shelf? Kawaii desu ne ?! !!!

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

Matenrou opera -Helios !!!

Hello Again!!!! I wanted to get started as soon as possible  with a visual kei song, and that song is HELIOS by matenrou opera .

Let me just start with one thing , when I found this song months ago I saw the views and  I grew a little weary .  I thought it was going to be another one of those songs that were only popular because the guys were hot. Man was I wrong .

I actually believe now that this song is underrated , I mean even my mom was like ‘dang whos that, they sound good’  it’s not that my mom’s a grinch just that Visual Kei is not for everyone.

Things i love about Matenrou opera-Helios :

The music : when i started this song i felt my heart flutter Anzi (who recently announced his departure from the band) slayed on the guitar And ayame playing the keyboard i was attached instantly then as if they wanted to make me fangirl even harder Sono starts singing… it was all too much

The words:  The japanese lyrics in this song are beautifully written (like in most cases when it comes to visual kei) but i literally get chills when i look up the translated version i can’t take it it’s too good ,like really i’m not exaggerating. Here is just a short example of a translated part

 ‘I look up to the sky that strikes the earth, and I stretch my hand just trying to stop it
My heart wishes for the warmth’ _ translated part of Matenrou opera Helios

now just try  and tell me that isn’t beautiful i’m practically sobbing now( just joking) but really the lyric are amazing  in their authentic japanese and in the translated english

 

The video:

 

 

 

This video is so  visually satisfying their makeup is perfection the props ( sonos mask) are so detailed and it’s just spectacular altogether.

Ps: If you have not watched this video or listened to this song DO it !! It is amazing. Im sure youll be as attached as i am .
